junauza.com: Being a fully satisfied Xubuntu 7.10 user, I've been eagerly waiting for the distribution release of Xubuntu 8.04 which will be coming out most probably at the end of the month.

silentcoder.co.za: I have been wanting to try out Fedora 9 ever since I read in an interview with the project leaders about 2 months ago that it was going with a KDE4 default desktop. Now Fedora is an interesting beast…
calummegan.wordpress: Back in January I wrote a review of Vector Linux 5.8 Standard. The fact that as I write this, over five months later, that review is still in the O’Reillynet Blogs Hot 25 says a lot about just how much interest there is in this up and coming Canadian distribution, a user friendly derivative of Slackware.
desktoplinux.com: What's cute, comes in a 6.4" high, 11" long, and 7.5" wide black box and runs Linux? That would be Shuttle Computers' KPC Shuttle.
itbusinessedge.com/blogs: silicon.com writer and IT analyst Martin Brampton says the open source movement isn’t as collaboration-friendly as its proponents would like you to think. How can that be, when open source development is all about sharing code and helping each other fix bugs or develop programs?
blogs.techtarget.com: Rumor has it that Linux and virtualization provider Levanta, whose recent release of Levanta 6.0 earned it a SearchEnterpriseLinux.com Product of the Year award, may have gone belly up.

blogs.the451group: I kept waiting to weigh in on the ISO approval of Microsoft’s Office Open XML (OOXML) format, searching for some kind of silver lining for open source. Then I saw Paul McDougall’s report on the nations that represent emerging markets and how they voted against OOXML approval as an ISO standard.
foogazi.com: Theres always the question of whether a popular, mildly mainstream Linux distribution like Ubuntu serves the overall GNU/Linux community well. It’s my belief that there are two sides to the debate regarding Ubuntu; the Good, and the Bad.
fengshaun.wordpress: after a while using Fedora, I thought I would give openSUSE a try. It is a popular distro! After using it for a week now, I’m satisfied with it. There are some features I like about it, and some that I don’t. First I will go for what I like about it.
