blog.steveklabnik: Yesterday, I woke up and decided that I felt like wiping my hard drive. It’s a new year, so I felt that it was time for a change. After brushing my teeth, I got on Reddit, and someone mentioned Arch Linux. I’d heard of it, but couldn’t remember what the guiding philosopy behind it was.
lawandlifesiliconvalley.com: Last year was the one of the most active years for legal developments in the history of free and open source (“FOSS”). http://lawandlifesiliconvalley.com/blog/?p=27 This year, 2008, has seen a continuation of important legal developments for FOSS. My list of the top ten FOSS legal developments in 2008 follows:

internetnews.com: With the economy in the tank and other major firms planning massive cutbacks, rumors have been swirling for several weeks that Microsoft plans big layoffs of its own to be announced on or about Jan. 15.
planetoss.com: After Ubuntu gained popularity, some distributions switched to Ubuntu as their base distribution. Also many new Ubuntu based distributions started to appear.
ostatic.com/blog: There are a number of full featured open source content management systems out there. Content management systems (CMS) are used increasingly in lieu of more "traditionally" managed web pages, on various sites with diverse audiences and very different goals.
blogs.zdnet.com: Metered computing, as outlined by Microsoft in a patent application, isn’t the worst idea I’ve heard — but it ranks up there with other spectacular failures like the original DivX, AOL dial-up, and the 2008 Detroit Lions.
testfreaks.com: There’s a new little netbook or ultralite notebook floating around out there. This new little netbook is linux based, it’s small, portable, inexpensive and lightweight, sure it’s not going to run Crysis, but if you’re looking for something to play around with then this just might fit the bill.
cyounkins.blogspot: After seeing Lifehacker blog about a number of Ubuntu speedups, I decided to test some of them to see their actual effectiveness.
blogs.gentoo.org: On Christmas Eve, a special present arrived from UPS: the HIS Radeon X1950 Pro I purchased on eBay. For the week prior to Christmas I removed the discrete nVidia 7600GT and ran off the integrated nVidia Geforce 8200 chip in my motherboard. Utter pain!
linuxtoday.com: It's a cliche, but it's an apt one: "God save me from my friends - I can protect myself from my enemies." Theodore Ts'o wrote an anti-Free Software rant this week that could have come straight from the massive, never-sleeping Redmond FudMachine.
opencomputer.net: As the last post of the year I wanted to sum up a short list of the best open source projects I met in 2008. Several from the list were created way before, but only got used by yours truly this year.

aronzak.wordpress: Puppy Linux can be installed on your USB stick. So can PortableApps, a collection of cross platform open source software that can run on Windows.
aplawrence.com: I went looking for Linux clipboard manager utilities and found plenty to choose from. The trick is figuring out what to Google for: "Linux clipboard manager" and "Linux clipboard viewer" seem to do the trick.
blogs.zdnet.com: The problem has always been that the graphics drivers needed for really high-end gaming just were not available through open source. Yesterday AMD tore down that wall.
lowkster.blogspot: I use openSUSE and Linux because it allows me to use my computers the way I want. I have some almost new hardware and some really old stuff.
heise-online.co.uk: Over the past few years, scheduled releases of open source projects have become the norm. Projects tend to release new versions according to a regular schedule as opposed to releasing when the developers consider all the work proposed, has been completed.
