howtogeek.com/tuxgeek: Combining the best parts of Mac OS X and Ubuntu, gOS is truly a worthy competitor in the OS wars. It has simplicity, a well designed interface, a rock solid linux core and web apps. But is it good enough? Is it ‘a Linux for the rest of us!’ ?
raiden.net: Are we living the fast and dangerous life in Linux just because it's so bullet proof and safe? Think about that. I ask that question because I have honestly found myself in recent months openly ignoring, not consciously mind you, but unconsciously, long held safety and security practices whenever I'm on a Linux or BSD machine.
oooninja.com: OpenOffice.org comes in several editions produced by different groups. Each edition has its own features, performance improvements, bug fixes, and new bugs. Go-oo in particular boasts performance as a feature with its the slogan, "Better, Faster, Freer," but is there truth in advertising?
linux.com: Last week marked the release of GNOME 2.24. Those who already use GNOME will appreciate the new additions, but there's nothing compelling enough in the new version to convince fans of other desktop environments to make a switch.
earthweb.com: A uniform computing experience: is it really all that much to ask for? When presenting this question to most experienced Linux users, "choice" often outweighs the idea of a uniform experience. Unfortunately this doesn’t sit with those who just wish to use their computers as they always have.

extremetech.com: One obvious way that Linux beats Microsoft Windows hands-down is in its flexibility. You can run Linux on just about any old crappy PC. It might not be the first device you think of when you download Ubuntu, but Sony makes it relatively easy to install Linux on the PlayStation 3.
pcmag.com: Unleash the power of Firefox 3 with the help of these little-known features. Here are eight handy things you can do with Firefox, ranging from tiny tweaks to hugely powerful capabilities, all with nary an extension to install.

workswithu.com: Ubuntu’s objective of becoming the distribution that finally brings Linux to “human beings,” i.e. non-geeks, is certainly ambitious. Its simultaneous (and thus far successful) pursuit of the server market, however, is perhaps yet more impressive.
techtarget.com: Open source software is cheaper than proprietary, right? Lower cost appears to be a primary incentive for Linux adoption? But some analysts including like Al Gillen, a research vice president of system software at Framingham, Mass.-based IDC, have questioned the validity of this argument.
ooomarketing.blogspot: Today, OpenOffice.org 3.0 RC3 is available. If all goes well, this will be the final RC before the planned product release, so stay tuned!

The Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue #110 for the week of September 21st - September 27th, 2008 is now available.
jldugger.livejournal: A recent cnet article suggests that Ubuntu is eating other distribution's lunch. In particular, one distribution is reported to be falling apart: Gentoo. Gentoo was very popular among my friends at the time I adopted Linux, but from what I've seen, the project fell apart as developers were unable to come to consensus or resolve conflicts.
