linuxdevices.com: Movie distributor Netflix is offering customers a $100 set-top box aimed at enabling them to stream movies on demand, using a broadband Internet connection. The player is supplied by Roku, a California-based company known for its Linux-based PVRs (personal video recorders) and media devices.
tuxvaio.blogspot: A worthy successor to the 701 series, the ASUS EEEPC 900 runs well under Ubuntu 8.04 or Hardy Heron. Though the following do not function as they did not also function in 7.04 and 7.10:

There was a time when I thought the Linux desktop was going to take a market share at least equal to Apple’s. Maybe even 5% or 10% of the total desktop market. I had high hopes that the One Laptop Per Child Initiative would put Linux laptops in the hands of impressionable young minds who would never have the chance to become dependent on Windows. Though that plan has fallen through the cracks. I don’t hate Microsoft Windows I just don’t have a desire to see any operating system dominate the market in such a way that the lack of competition stifles innovation and forces users into an endless upgrade cycle, offering progressively smaller incremental value.

downloadsquad.com: We are a little bit disturbed. Not in a "We just watched a David Lynch movie" sort of way, but still, it is a little unnerving to think that our last post on Ulteo hinted at a world domination plot... and now it seems that goal is within their reach.

advancedtrading.com: A new software upstart Marketcetera contends that its open source platform for building automated trading systems is an alternative to the likes of EMS providers Portware and Flextrade. I doubt that the emergence of an open-source trading platform is going to encroach upon the success of Portware and FlexTrade anytime soon, but it could offer firms more freedom to do things on their own at a lower price point.

reallylinux.com: There I was standing around the LUG booth at the annual Linux expo when I realised that unlike years past, there were considerable numbers of female attendants. No, I am not referring exclusively to those female models hired to promote an OS (I won't mention which one) wearing skimpy demon costumes.
desktoplinux.com: A Hong Kong-based manufacturer is shipping a Linux-based ultra-mini PC (UMPC) laptop for only $250 ($180 in volume), which appears to give it the lowest price yet for a Linux laptop. Bestlink's Alpha 400 offers a 400MHz CPU and a 7-inch, truecolor display.
community.zdnet: Is Ubuntu's Hardy Heron resting on its laurels? Ubuntu 8.04LTS - for Long Term Support - was widely expected to continue the platform's long, steady march towards impeccable reliability and usability. But instead of a shot on goal, it's looking more like a foul each day.
pcadvisor.co.uk: For many of us, our first painful introduction to old-school Linux installs came from installing early versions of Red Hat. Like most early Linux installs, it was a highly technical, highly finicky process that was best left to the experts. Well, times have changed.

linuxowns.wordpress: Today I’m having a look at most Instant Messengers that can handle the MSN protocol. I’ll take a better look at 7 IM’s and rate them according to my biased opinion.
junauza.com: If you are looking for a computer program that can help you get the results of standard statistical procedures and statistical significance tests without the need for low-level numerical programming, then a statistical package is what you need.
techiemoe.com: Fedora is one of the top five most popular distributions on DistroWatch.com. It has a very large user base and its developers are both Redhat employees and volunteers. It has a reputation as being the first to try new things. This is both a good and bad thing.
informationweek.com: Most of the time, Linux is run from either an installation on a hard drive or a live CD/DVD distribution. Over the last few years, though, we've seen the emergence of something that combines the speed of a hard drive install with the convenience of a live CD: running Linux from a USB flash drive.

oreillynet.com/linux/blog: In When Do You Trade in Your Gibbon for a Heron?, I mentioned that I’m considering upgrading my System76 laptop from Gutsy Gibbon to Hardy Heron. A commenter named Scummy suggested that a similarly configured Dell system is cheaper: Dude - you just paid a $350 ‘Linux Tax’ by NOT going mainstream in your hardware…
mattcutts.com: I’m a huge fan of Ubuntu Linux. I’ve used many flavors of Linux over the years, and Ubuntu is my favorite by far. For my needs, Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) is worse than 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon). I cannot recommend Hardy Heron at this time.
osweekly.com: Hardy Hero, a new version of Ubuntu, was announced a little while ago, and the features for this release of Ubuntu are actually rather compelling to me. Because Gutsy only wowed me on two levels - a better wireless stack and the inclusion of tracker by default, here’s some of what I would like to see with Heron.
