the-gay-bar.com: Ubuntu, Canonical's linux distribution "for human beings" has been dominating the linux news and reports for a few years now: At first out of the "look at the freaky African rich guy who tried to build a distro" interest, then because blogs and other media started picking it up. Today Ubuntu is pretty much a synonym for linux for many people. Opensuse? What's that? Fedora? Never heard of it. Debian, Arch, Slackware, Gentoo? Words without meaning.
infoworld.com: Microsoft is finally adding support for ODF (Open Document Format for XML) and Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format) to its Office productivity suite, the company is expected to announce late Wednesday.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: We in the open source community live in a bubble world. People live in an Ubuntu bubble or a Fedora bubble. Fedora 9 was just released and I, as an Ubuntu user, couldn’t care less. I don’t use Fedora, so the announcement of Fedora 9, does not resonate with me. Likewise, when Hardy Heron was released in April, Fedora users let out a collective yawn.
intranetjournal.com: For many computer users, the desire to find something more cost effective than Windows has been growing from a low growl to a loud roar. Obviously not everyone is a great candidate to make the switch to the open source operating system. Once you are able to better understand some of the strengths of using the Linux desktop, however, you too might find that migrating makes a lot sense.
linux.com: Ark Linux is a distribution developed primarily for new Linux users, although its developers say experienced users should find it powerful enough to use as well. I've tested it before and found the later claim a bit overstated. Would version 2008.1, released this month, be a change for the better?
junauza.com: Now that I have tried and tested F-9 on my 4th gen. Macbook Pro (Penryn), it's time for me to give you a concise summary of the Sulphur experience and how it compares to that of Hardy Heron.
theinquirer.net: MICROSOFT has suffered further set-backs in the UK education sector this week after Becta, the government procurement quango, reformed its purchasing regime to break the software giant's hold on education, and launched a programme to get schools to adopt open source software.

reghardware.co.uk: We saw leaked piccies of the white Atom-powered Eee PC 901 t'other week, but now it's the turn of the black version to find pictures of itself slip out of Asus and appear on the web.
arstechnica.com: This model works well for many projects, particularly the GNOME desktop environment. One consequence of this model, however, is that it forces developers to work incrementally, and it discourages large-scale modifications.
ostatic.com: Hindsight is always 20/20, and it's easy to try to lay blame here. But instead, let's think about some principles that could help prevent such disasters in the future. It seems to me that there are three things that would have helped immensely in this case.
codinghorror.com: I remember my first experience with PHP way back in 2001. Despite my questionable pedigree in ASP and Visual Basic, browsing an alphabetical PHP function list was enough to scare me away for years. Somehow, I don't think things have improved a whole lot since then.
computerworld.com.au: Open source players will need to swap baggy jeans for suits if they want to secure lucrative enterprise and government contracts, experts say.
computerworld.com: It was just over a year ago that Microsoft Corp. dropped a bombshell of a claim: users of Linux and open-source software were unwittingly violating as many as 235 Microsoft software patents.
redhat.com: The attacking left forward fakes his body to the left as he gracefully slides to the right around his opponent. Dribbling carefully into position, he sizes up the Australian goalie. “What?!?
stephenstrail.blogspot: About 2 weeks ago, my wife discovered that her computer, running Ubuntu 8.04, would no longer read her digital cameras. As she was running the 64 bit version, and I was running the 32 on mine, I tried the cameras on my computer. No luck. What a disappointment! We had both happily been using Ubuntu for almost 2 years!

linuxworld.com: A vestige of Linux's SMP past is still making trouble for users of heavily loaded systems. Developers say the solution isn't to fix the Big Kernel Lock, but to uproot it entirely. Will the mainstream kernel be able to agree on an approach to this surprisingly contentious issue?
