Robin 'Roblimo' Miller: I've been hearing the phrase "This is the year of the Linux desktop" for 10 years. For me, it's been a true statement for each of those years, because GNU/Linux has been my primary desktop operating system since 1997. But for most people around the world, this is the year of the the Windows desktop, same as it was last year and the year before. But if we each spent one day telling others about GNU/Linux, could we make a difference in the lives of at least a few people?
iTWire: For any parent, myself included, setting your kids loose on the net is a daunting prospect. We have to do it because the net is a fact of life - it's in our schools, the workplace, public libraries and in many if not most homes of the developed world. Therefore, do we really have any option but to give them Linux?

junauza.blogspot: Sidux is a desktop-oriented Linux distribution based on the “unstable” but most modern and up-to-date Debian branch called Sid (from the Toy Story character). The main aim of Sidux is to enhance and stabilize Sid, using its very own packages and scripts to allow a hassle-free use of Debian’s latest and cutting edge software.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: For those of you that follow my blog, you must have noticed that I’m a Mandriva user. Recently though, I took an interest in Ubuntu: I installed version 7.04 on a laptop, and it did look interesting, enough to make me doubt my commitment to Mandriva’s products.
liquidat: Fedora 8 has just been released, but of course plans for the next version are already under way: a Fedora 9 Feature List has been created in the Wiki, just like the one for Fedora 8, and people and groups now add their plans and aims.
computerworld: Observers said MAR also attempts to ameliorate another risk: that refurbishers, frustrated by the high cost and difficulty of following Microsoft's arcane Windows licenses to the letter, will simply install a free Linux operating system on renewed PCs instead.
blog.coffeedaze.com: The truth of the matter is Linux is quickly becoming a viable option for the every day user. With a plethora of distributions and software available, plus some great eye candy, the Linux desktop will be seen in more common homes as the years go on.

Red Hat ruled the Linux distribution world, before Ubuntu came and took over. With the current release for Fedora, it seems that Red Hat is fighting really hard to control the lost ground. The intense effort is clear from the current release. If we ignore minor hick-ups, werewolf is one of the best releases from Fedora. With this release Fedora is returning to my workstation as distribution of choice, after a long time.

fedora-announce-list: The development cycle of Fedora 9 will begin in earnest tomorrow. This will mark the first attempt at composing Rawhide with package builds that target Fedora 9. There is quite a number of them built up already, over 800. This will be a bumpy ride at first.
my-guides.net: Fedora 8 (Werewolf) has been released! Just like Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 I wrote this guide to help you with some common installation tasks that might be useful for you. Everything has been tested on my system and it works! Learn how to set up extra repositories, add video/dvd and audio codecs, install useful applications, configure Firefox's plugins, install compiz-fusion and much more!
informationweek: Red Hat is partnering with Amazon to offer Linux-based computing power as an on-call computer resource, letting companies scale up applications without building a bigger data center. That Linux-on-demand idea has sizzle, but there are other interesting pieces in Red Hat's latest batch of products, including more virtualization support and one audacious goal.
MaximumPC: Earlier this week, we told you about how a 17,000-seat deal for Mandriva Linux in Nigerian classrooms had been scuttled by Microsoft at the last moment. Well, the saga continues: according to the IDG News Service, the deal is still on.
tech.yahoo.com/blogs/raskin: There's been quite a fuss made over the XO, developed by Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child (OLPC). The OLPC vision was to design a low-cost, but powerful connected PC in order to provide kids all over the world with Internet-power. OLPC wants to sell the XO, in bulk, to third-world countries.
I guess there is some honesty in Nigeria after all...
It took about a week, but the government of Nigeria stepped in: "We are sticking with that platform," said the official.

LinuxToday: In a world where the big conglomerates and industries tend to roll over the little guy, it was really nice to see the government of Nigeria put the kibosh on Microsoft's planned takeover of the Mandriva/Classmate PC deal in that country.
kernelTRAP: "For the last release, I stated that I thought the 220.127.116.11 release would be the last one in the 2.6.22.y series. Since then, I've received a number of other patches that would be nice to have in the .22.y tree," explained Greg KH.
