raiden.net: This is somewhat of a simple observation on my part, but one of the things I've noticed of late is how the cry for Ext4 is growing, and fast. Sure, recent benchmarks make it look like the ultimate solution. But I don't recommend moving to the Ext4 file system just yet.

itwire.com: No matter if you're exclusively a Windows shop, every good IT technician needs Linux in their toolkit. A bootable Linux CD has saved my bacon more than once.
arstechnica.com: Mozilla Labs has released an experimental Firefox extension that brings new functionality to blank tab pages.
phoronix.com: Last November we learned that Plymouth would replace USplash in Ubuntu. However, for those not interested in trying out Fedora to see Red Hat's Plymouth, there is a package repository of Plymouth packages for Ubuntu available.
