technewsworld: When Digg.com tried to follow orders from the MPAA and take down an HD DVD crack code a user had posted on the site, users rebelled so much that Digg simply gave in and allowed the code to remain. Some called it a victory for open source. Lawyers don't see it as an open source issue; however, they question whether issuing high-profile demands to keep the code secret was an effective tactic.
linux.com: If you use a traditional desktop like GNOME or KDE, a keyboard-controlled desktop with a minimum of utilities may seem like stepping back 10 or 15 years in the history of interface design. Why bother, when traditional desktops are easy to use and RAM and disk space are so cheap nowadays?
Time4Tea: Mark Shuttleworth and a few Ubuntu developers stopped by the Sun Menlo Park campus on Friday May 4th. I'm not working with Ubuntu, but since I'm involved with the Solaris Companion and with general OpenSolaris issues, I wanted to see what they had to say about third-party packages and about how they do their releases.
mod_proxy_balancer is an Apache module that lets you create a loadbalancer. This loadbalancer retrieves requested pages from two or more backend webservers and delivers them to the user's computer. An important feature of mod_proxy_balancer is that it keeps track of sessions so that a single user always deals with the same backend webserver.
linux n00b: I recently stuck PCLinuxOS 2007 on a 3rd partition on my system, mainly as a test for my fubar’ed video card. First impression: I really like it.
talk bmc: From subtle to overt (I read a blog recently where the tag was (paraphrasing) “I'll teach my kid MS Windows and Excel, you teach yours Linux, we'll see who gets job first...), the stories are rife, but I do not understand why. But this recent case at IT/360 - LinuxWorld really cheesed me off.
Phoronix: Out with the Core and in with the Moonshine. Fedora 7 (named Moonshine) is shipping today and marks the merge of Fedora Core and Fedora Extras along with bringing KVM virtualization into the limelight, a new installable LiveCD, a new build system, new wireless firmware, and other desktop improvements.
Moving to Freedom: One of my problems in moving to free software has been a stubborn resistance to letting go of my old Windows ways and jumping in to the deeper end of the freedom pool. I’ve been getting over my self-directed FUD campaign and am enjoying the learning process these days.

eWeek: Enterprise IT users are looking for the major Linux vendors to update their enterprise products less frequently and to give them much more guidance about what is included in the patches and upgrades.
Reuters: Software maker Novell Inc. will not be punished by a software foundation that owns rights to much of the code behind the open-source Linux operating system, said a person familiar with the matter.

SysAdminMag.com: Most Linux distributions have upgrade paths with their installation. They are, however, usually only useful for a sub-release upgrade, such as from 7.1 to 7.2 or 7.3. However, I have yet to run into one that will successfully and cleanly upgrade from one release to the next full release. However, with some thought and a decent understanding of *Nix, it's possible to upgrade or migrate without too much pain.
Phoronix: Earlier today we had spoke with Mark Shuttleworth to discuss the latest happenings in the Ubuntu world including Dell shipping Ubuntu PCs, getting open-source drivers from hardware vendors, and what is coming down the road for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.
Linux Journal: Some people are rubbing their hands in glee at the thought of Novell crashing and burning completely, but such a development could actually turn out to be one of the worst things to happen to free software.
PC Pro: A University of Liverpool mathematician claims 30-year-old open-source software has cracked the equation that will allow scientists to make objects - such as humans, tanks or even entire islands - invisible.
linux devcenter: I’ve had software patents on my mind for several years. After listening to my colleage Allison Randal work on the Artistic License 2.0 for several years, I’ve finally noticed that other updated OSI-compatible licenses deal with software patents in two ways.

/home/liquidat: Fedora 7 is to be released in these hours. I already got a copy of the last RC and have been bug hunting since then. And I gathered quite some over the last days, unfortunately, but most are simply due to new, not yet tested application features.
Nosredna Ekim: I am a Kubuntu user since version 6.06. However, that hasn’t made me blindly consider (k)ubuntu to be the best linux distro; I am always open to newcomers. In recent days, PClinuxOS 2007.0 was released, and quickly hit the top of of the distrowatch charts. I decided to download it and give this relatively new distribution a text run on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop.
Linux.com: After several delays, Gentoo finally released version 2007.0, code-named Secret Sauce. Despite the extended period of development, the installable live CD and DVD versions didn't work as they should, thanks to obvious bugs with display drivers. That said, if you discount the live CD and DVD and install Gentoo the manual way it's popular for, the new version is smooth as ice.
Raiden's Realm: A lot of the greatest hype in the Linux world has been around Ubuntu and its derivatives, namely Kubuntu, Edubuntu and the like. However, there's yet another contender in the Linux world that has been making a lot of noise and is worth a good hard look. Enter PcLinuxOS.
