stormyscorner.com: One of the questions I get asked a lot is the "KDE vs GNOME" question. My first reaction is "that's not the issue," - the message I want to send the world is not why GNOME is better than KDE.
jonobacon.org: Adam Williamson, community wrangler at Mandriva, a friend of mine, and someone who I have shared an over-sized coffee with, has posted a vitriol filled rant entitled Why I don’t like Canonical. Lets take a look each of these delicious nuggets of nonsense and break them apart.
workswithu.com: I recently decided to upgrade to OpenOffice 3. As many users know, the Ubuntu developers made the controversial decision not to include OO 3, released in mid-October 2008, in Ubuntu 8.10, out of concerns that it would not be stable enough. But I still made the move to OpenOffice 3.
news.cnet.com: Microsoft is apparently going to support Firefox and Safari with its upcoming Office Web Applications (and, hence, Windows alternatives like Mac OS X and Linux). Yes, those using Internet Explorer and Silverlight will have an enhanced experience, but what does it mean for Red Hat?
cookingwithlinux.com: How many times have you talked to a Windows user about Linux this year? Was there any result from your enthusiastic pitch: i.e. did anyone install Linux? Often we don't know. The problem is, without giving someone a tangible item to remember your conversation and or to take action with, we may have wasted time and energy.
theregister.co.uk: I know this annoys my friends in the free software community, but branding allows us to invest more in OpenOffice.org community and features, from which everyone benefits.

linux.com: The word "big" has two meanings here. Ace Suares is not only a big-time GNU/Linux and FOSS advocate, but he is close to 2.5 meters tall and built like a football lineman. He lives on the island of Curacao in the Netherland Antilles, where he and his wife run a small Web design and hosting firm that (of course) runs Linux servers. But trying to convert other IT people on Curacao to the FOSS cause has not been easy.
hehe2.net: What does using Linux mean to you? Do you simply use it because it works best for you? While at its heart Linux itself, is nothing more than a software kernel, to many people it is much more. It is a mission.
bitburners.com: When Mark Shuttleworth, the man behind Canonical/Ubuntu, made the comment that Ubuntu should be prettier than Apple OSX in near term I got excited - the man was absolutely right. It doesn’t matter how customizable and operating is, or how good can you make it look with some effort if it does look bad out of the box.
oneandoneis2.org: So you have some files that are fragmented. And this obviously is slowing your machine down. Right?
blogs.computerworld: If you think about where Linux is fighting for market and mind-share, chances are you're thinking about Linux slugging it out with Microsoft Windows, and to a far lesser extent, from Mac OS X. That's all true, but there's also fierce competition between Linux distributions.

linuxdevices.com: It appears that Debian 5.0 (aka "Lenny") will soon take its big binocular eyes out into the wider world. The Debian project has completed the first release-candidate of Lenny's installer, which features much-improved support for ARM-based devices, along with much faster installation from "live" CDs.
kmandla.wordpress: On a clean installation of Windows XP (don’t ask; it’s a long story), Internet Explorer 6 claims there’s an error on the GetFirefox.com download page, and refuses to allow a click on the download button.
crumja.wordpress: After running Debian Lenny for a while, I’ve got a few things to report. Performance is admirable and is certainly a step up from Ubuntu 8.04 in terms of reponsiveness. However, not all packages behaved well.
community.zdnet: I've been going in circles for a while now, I think it is time to pass along a few notes and experiences from those circles...
linux-mag.com: Successful and peaceful conversion of a population to any new concept occurs through its children. Do you want to introduce a new type of mathematics? Introduce it in Elementary School. You may convert the world to Linux by providing free and engaging Elementary School level educational and edutainment programs.
