lucas-nussbaum.net: One thing that really is annoying with Launchpad is its lack of interfaces with the outside world. No SOAP interface, no easy way to export all bugs. The only way to get all the bug data in a machine-parseable is to first fetch this URL, and then, for each bug number listed there to make another request.
groklaw.net: There is an announcement just posted about OASIS opening a new discussion list for members and nonmembers to discuss a proposal to form a new technical committee to help out with "ODF Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance". Yes, interoperability is the key. Rob Weir will lead the discussion.
kdedevelopers.org: It has been several months since I blogged about exciting openSUSE stuff happening (all about at the same time). The next few weeks enough long in the work things are on the home stretch to make June an openSUSE month:
2008 marks the tenth anniversary of Mandriva - the company and the distribution. The Mandriva community celebrated in style over the last weekend in May, with a party in the Eiffel Tower in Paris attended by many staff, former staff, community members and partners. There was also an - indoor - picnic, and the now-traditional Dance Dance Revolution party.
gpl3.blogspot: The year has gone by quite quickly since the GPL v3 was first released. We have just entered into the month of the release, and it is only 23 days until a complete year has passed. It doesn't seem like we have been tracking the GPL v3 and its derivatives for a year, but it is more believable when you look at the count.
codingexperiments.com: Since before the dawn of time, Linux users have argued over which distribution to use. But by far, Ubuntu, a massively popular Debian-based distribution, is the one most recommended by everybody. But under that famous shiny orange surgery coating, I believe lie some annoying problems.

artipc10.vub.ac.be: During the past few days, I have been testing KDE 4.1 beta on Mandriva Cooker. Actually the version I tested is even a bit more recent than KDE 4.1 beta: Cooker currently includes the KDE 4.0.81 snapshot.
brajeshwar.com: In our earlier article — the Art of Linux — we saw some prominent features of the *NIX based operating system - Linux. The actual power of Linux can only be unleashed once we have an installation at our disposal. So before we move ahead in our quest of mastering Linux, we shall have to to make sure that each one of us have at least a copy of Linux installed on their machines.
blog.i-no.de: When I got more involved with Gentoo, the release team was aiming to release the then-pending release (2007.1) in early December. Eventually, that date slipped time and again. It was decided to drop the entire release and do a new one (2008.0). Again, the dates kept slipping. Now, the question is why a release is slipping time and again.
maketecheasier.com: When I first installed Screenlets half a year ago, I really didn’t like it. It took up a big chunk of memory and have only a limited quantity of widgets to choose from. With the release of the new 0.1.2 version, I decided to give it another shot.
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: I recently purchased a new Toshiba laptop. Model #A205, T2330, 1.6 GHz, 2GB system memory, 128 meg video memory, 200GB SATA HD, 15.4 screen, DVDRW, 802.11 bg PSAF3U-OW900V. I played with VISTA for 2 days and was so frustrated I decided to remove VISTA and install Linux.
kloeri.livejournal: The last couple of days I've seen a bunch of links to 'Never Heard of Exherbo? Never Will, Either.' pop up all over the internet and people have asked me about it on freenode as well.
opensuse.org: There have been several changes with the Compiz setup in openSUSE 11.0, including both exciting and new features in Compiz Fusion, and extra developments behind-the-scenes which make running and managing Compiz easier. Today we will be taking a look at these, and catching up with Dennis ‘onestone’ Kasprzyk.
junauza.com: I took some time to look at several Linux distribution logos, and then decided to collect 50 of them that caught my eyes. I not only picked those that are well-known and good-looking, but also those that looked weird and ugly.
linuxblogonline.org: When NASA needs an operating system for a Mars lander does it go knocking on Bill Gates’ door? The answer is no. The newly arrived on the planet Phoenix Lander is powered by a variation of Linux running on a specially hardened CPU and motherboard produced by IBM.
brajeshwar.com: The existence of Linux is inevitable in the realm of LAMP based web development. It is more than incomplete to talk about LAMP without the operating system - Linux. Although Apache, mySQL and PHP/Python/Perl are equally capable of running over non-*nix machines too, Linux predominantly holds a larger share in terms of developers’ choice. Hence the acronym - LAMP. So, where lies the difference?
linuxlock.blogspot: Hey, I wasn't doing anything a million other websurfers weren't doing...all I wanted was a link to a live webcam somewhere in Felton California. I just wanted to put a link up.
linux.com: Version numbering and labeling is next to meaningless. These days, versioning rarely gives an accurate idea of the state of development, except relative to other builds of the same project. It is simply a label that distinguishes one build from another.
Jim Zemlin: Open Source is still a disruptive idea. It has moved beyond that in server operating systems, of course, with Linux on 20% of servers shipped these days. That’s known as being “mainstream.” But the effects of open source development and business models continue to be heavily disruptive as they spread into new technology markets.
