linuxjournal.com: One of the most striking features of any desktop environment is its selection of icons. The myriad of available icon themes may find themselves feeling a bit lonely in the near future, however, as the GNOME Art Team has decided that — at least some of them — will face the firing squad.

linuxcritic.wordpress: When I was first preparing to switch to Linux many years ago, I went into research mode and looked around the net a bit. At the time, part of the allure of Linux were the crazy cool desktops people had. I discovered that all those amazing desktops were the result of Fluxbox.
dedoimedo.com: This is the second time I've taken gOS for a spin. I have reviewed the distro approx. a year and a half years ago in an article aptly named gOS Linux - a very good OS. Indeed, gOS was a great treat. The current version ups the ante with new delights.
blogs.computerworld.com: By KDE 4.2, I finally saw a new version of KDE I could like. Now, with the "so close to release you can almost taste it," KDE 4.3 is the first of the KDE 4 family that I can wholeheartedly approve of.
linuxjournal.com: You may have noticed the odd bit of celebration around the magic billion downloads milestone for Firefox. Of course, as Mozillans themselves point out, that figure doesn't tell us very much. How do we get the *next* billion downloads – and why do we want them?
blogs.techrepublic.com: Open source has infiltrated so many levels of IT over the past decade. It has been a slow process, however slowly but surely it has become a normality.

Let’s take a look at some good reasons to hire open source developers.

toolbox.com/blogs: What normally happens is that there is some blurb on what the problem is, then a single line which can be typed or pasted into a console session to implement that tip or solution. Then they make some inane statement about how this could be done easier with some graphical based program.
