polishlinux.org: There are only two months left for the new Ubuntu release to appear. I’ve decided to check out what is it that the Ubuntu developers have been preparing for us. Yet again, there are no huge, revolutionary changes, but some of them are really interesting. I’ve decided to write a few words about them.
linsec.ca/blog: A recent post from Russ Coker entitled AppArmor is Dead was tolling the death bells for AppArmor because SUSE decided to include SELinux in their operating system… not as the default, and not as a replacement for AppArmor, but it was included nonetheless.

theregister.co.uk: Not many things make the founder of the Ubuntu distro Mark Shuttleworth nervous, but recommending people replace Windows with Linux on their desktop, it seems, is one of them.
raiden.net: One of the favorite, stand alone systems on Linux for producing your own Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is MythTV. But for some, MythTV is a little too geek to be bothered with due its sometimes complex and cumbersome installation process, or issues with the distribution it's being installed on.
dot.kde.org: After last week's update to the KDE 3.5 series, today's KDE release updates the stable KDE 4.1 branch to KDE 4.1.1. It bears the codename "Cebidae" referring to an in-joke often made during Akademy 2008.
phoronix.com: The 2008 X Developer Summit has started this morning. However, as there is no Internet connection here other than a single 3G cell connection for 30 people, the audio recordings and Phoronix content will not be uploaded until later today. In the mean time though, here are a few notes from the talks thus far:
computerworlduk.com: On the day (late in the week) God-Bill created Windows 2000/XP he saw that it was good and would no doubt have rested there with his finished work. Unfortunately, because of not really being God and therefore not omniscient, he forgot that he had already created the upgrade cycle.
telegraph.co.uk: Do I now have to reinstall Windows XP (and Ubuntu) or if there are ways of retrieving files from the Windows partition using Linux?
news.bbc.co.uk: The torrid time that Gary Parkinson lived through when converting to Linux compelled him to share his experiences with one of the alternatives to Microsoft's ubiquitous operating system.
phoronix.com: Phoronix Media has announced the release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.2 (codenamed "Malvik"), an update to its leading and award-winning benchmarking software, during the 2008 X Developers' Summit.
it.toolbox.com/blogs/locutus: It seems a funny name and just looking at it from a long list of over 20,000 choices does nothing to make it stand out. For all you know Yakuake could be some ancient Inca ritual. Well some ritual did inspire it but definitely not an Inca ritual.

The VAR Guy wonders: Could a bigger trend be coming? Will hundreds — or thousands — of small businesses make the move to Ubuntu Server Edition?
cookingwithlinux.com: Tonight, on the WFTL Linux Show Marcel and I were talking about the number of Linux users that were out there. A prediction of 20% for Linux in 2008 was a bit high in my estimation because I saw another website that placed us around 2%.
dvorak.org/blog: Googlers gah-gah over the Google Chrome browser. Will Microsoft be affected? I think not. Chrome is more of a competitor to Safari than anything else. I think it leads to the Google OS.

zonker.opensuse.org: If you weren’t in Salt Lake City last week for the Utah Open Source Conference (UTOSC), you missed out big time! UTOSC was one heck of a community show, and it seemed like all who attended had a really good time.
