news.com: It's 2018 and the Nazis are about to return from space to an unsuspecting Earth. Sound weird? It could happen. And it does in Iron Sky. The Star Wreck Studios team, based in Tampere, Finland, has built a virtual studio for Iron Sky and an open-source platform that gives anybody the chance to make a film at no cost.

divyad.wordpress: Much talk has been happening about Wubi that is going to be a part of Ubuntu 8.10. However not many know that this feature is already available in Mandriva Linux. Finally lets talk a bit about UNetbootin.
phoronix.com: Last week we shared the sad reality about Unreal Tournament 3 that it's been 5 months and there's still no Linux client. It was mentioned in the news posting that forum moderators for Epic Games, the company behind the Unreal franchise, had been deleting posts of users who had inquired about the status of this game for Linux. There is now confirmation that they are taking such actions to suppress the UT3 Linux talk.
linuxjournal.com: As the name suggests, Writer's Tools is a collection of various utilities that might be useful for writers. It's a little rough in places, being only at version 0.9.27, and possibly a little idiosyncratic, but like Emacs, Writer's Tools is so varied that it undoubtedly has something for everyone, regardless of their writing habits.
Caitlyn Martin: Last month distro-review ran an article titled 10 ways that Linux is outgrowing the stereotype and becoming the best OS. While I agreed with all 10 points in the article something just didn’t sit right with me. I bookmarked the article and gave it a good long think. My conclusion: the facts are correct but there are problems with both the premise and the goal of the article.
blogs.zdnet.com: Gnash certainly hopes so. Gnash is an open source Flash player, being developed under the GPL. Currently available only for Linux versions such as embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, they’re working on a Windows port.
blog.wired.com: Version 2.4.1 made some improvements, but meanwhile the project has forked. A set of developers have created Funpidgin is a version of Pidgin with a manually resizable input box and four other additional features so far.
practical-tech.com: Who would have believed it in 2004? KDE and GNOME, the two major Linux desktop interfaces, buddying up and having their annual meetings together? It would have been easier to believe in cats and dogs signing a permanent peace treaty. Believe it.
aplawrence.com: There's plenty of stuff out there that tells you why you should embrace Linux and make it your own. That's not what this is: if you want to run Windows, go ahead. You may be perfectly happy. So why?
mercurynews.com: The fate of 44-year-old computer engineer Hans Reiser, who is accused of murdering his wife, now rests with the jury. The prosecution finished its rebuttal in the closing arguments to his trial Monday morning.

junauza.com: Have you ever wondered which Linux distribution was most popular during the previous years? If you have, then you may be interested in some of the data that I’m going to present to you. We shall find out which distro had the most number of followers in the past. Here it goes:
linuxdevices.com: Registration is open for the tenth annual edition of OSCON (Open Source Convention), as well as for a co-located Ubuntu Live conference. Scheduled for Jul. 21-25 in Portland, Ore., O'Reilly's OSCON 2008 is expected to draw some 2,500 open source experts, visionaries, and hackers.
downloadsquad.com: When we last left our favorite evil geniuses at Ulteo, they were diligently plugging away at making OpenOffice.org applications accessible through a browser. Now, they've taken their plans for global domination one step further with Ulteo Application System.
techiemoe.com: Damn Small Linux has traditionally been my favorite of the ultra-light distributions. Its contemporaries (Puppy, etc.) are very capable, but for some reason I've always had a special place for DSL.
foogazi.com: For what Wubi claims to be able to do, I’m somewhat surprised that I haven’t heard more about it. Basically, you can install Ubuntu from Windows and then boot to Linux or Windows without having to do any kind of Grub trickery or anything.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: It’s really the most wonderful time of the year. Out of the top 6 GNU/Linux distributions (according to DistroWatch.com), four are releasing or have released builds between April and June. What’s new in Mandriva, Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE?
As I looked introspectively into these stories I wondered how relevant they were. I came to a realization that while the one of the most commonly espoused virtues of open source is more eyeballs generating better code that perhaps one of the least mentioned strengths is their marketing ability.
