ronaldsteelman.com: Recently I decided that it was time I picked up some flavor of Linux and give it a try. I’ve installed Gentoo in the past, with some difficulty, but never stuck with it for long. The second time around with Gentoo wasn’t as bad as the first.
Also: Moving on from Gentoo…
And: Gentoo Software that never made it
itwire.com: When Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of the One Laptop Per Child project, said two months ago that the project needed to be managed "more like Microsoft" he was speaking nothing but the truth.
kerneltrap.org: Joseph Myers announced the availability of GCC 4.2.4 saying, "GCC 4.2.4 is a bug-fix release, containing fixes for regressions in GCC 4.2.3 relative to previous GCC releases." He adds, "as always, a vast number of people contributed to this GCC release -- far too many to thank individually!"
andrewbetts.com/blog: Using extremely complicated analysis I can confirm that Microsoft will be less popular than Ubuntu Linux in the year 2010.
hexus.net: An eagle-eyed user of the Linux Kernel Mailing List archive, going by the name of Jo Shields (who many of you may know), has accused Compro Technology of violating the General Public License (GPL).
blogs.zdnet.com: In their paper Money Ruins Everything, Australian law professor Dan Hunter and economist John Quiggin (right) argue that open source and Internet creativity mandate changes in copyright law, which now favor industries whose costs have disappeared.
jonobacon.org: Well, we are half way through the Ubuntu Developer Summit, and the week is going very, very well. We have been having some excellent, productive discussions, and are having a lot of fun in the evenings.
internetnews.com: Though the next major release of Red Hat's flagship Enterprise Linux is still likely more than a year away, Red Hat continues to offer incremental updates, with the latest delivering new features and support for both server and desktop users.
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.
