gentoo.org: Hello and welcome to the third issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter. Last month we ran graphical statistics on an experimental basis. While most of you think they're a good idea in general, there seemed to be general dislike for 3D pie-charts. We've replaced two pie-charts with bar-graphs, and made the remaining pie-chart two dimensional. We've also split the package addition and removal lists by week, in hopes of improving readability.

nuxified.org: I am honored to have had a chance to interview two of the most dedicated Freedomware and GNU/Linux advocates. Ken Starks and Larry Cafiero answered a number of questions about Lindependence 2008, an ambitious, multifaceted new advocacy project they have started recently. So, let's get right down to it!
downloadsquad.com: All right, the headline is a little bit of a lie. Some Linux installs are hairier, take longer, and just aren't as soothing as the one we're about to show you. They do all work approximately the same way, however, and that's just fine for us as a point of illustration.

Matt Asay: Linus Torvalds used to talk about "world domination" as his goal for Linux. These days, though, while we seem to be making progress toward this end, we also appear to be increasingly complacent. We downplay the ideology that underlies open source in favor of "safe" rhetoric about lower sales and marketing costs and such.
