itwire.com: Last year, curious over the hype that was flooding the internet in the wake of the release of Windows Vista, I decided to turn masochist and inflict a 14-day Vista trial on myself. I found the operating system much worse than even its worst critic.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: Linux is a UNIX like operating system and has been one of the most popular proponents of free open source software. Even though popularly GNU/Linux is called Linux operating system, but the name is somewhat misleading because Linux is the name of the kernel of the operating system.
ubuntukids.org/blog: I recently wrote about my frustrations with the 901 model of the Asus eee PC. My solution, at least for now, is to load Ubuntu, and I have done so. Here is a not-so-brief rundown of what I did, what issues still exist, and my general impressions of Ubuntu on a device like this.
Also: Installing Ubuntu 8.04 on the Eee PC 901
electronista.com: Classmate PC reseller CTL plans to set a new floor for desktops with a nettop that shares the same design philosophy as Intel's portable. The 2go pc nettop will cost as little as $149 thanks to its use of a 1.6GHz Atom processor but desktop-oriented parts.
Matthew Aslett: JasperSoft’s business development director Andrew Lampitt has kicked off his new blog with an interesting post related to business models used by open source-related vendors.
blogs.techrepublic.com: I follow a lot of mailing lists…all of them either Linux or open source in nature. Some of these lists I have been following for years. So I figured I had best offer some advice for those of you who might venture out into the world of Linux/open source mailing lists. Here’s my top advice.
- Background with xplanet and XFCE
- Browse your KDE Bookmarks with KIO_Bookmarks
- Remove debian udev persistent-net-rules
- Gimp Giving You a Headache?
daniel.holba.ch/blog: Only a very few hours left until we start a fantastic week of Ubuntu Developer action. So let’s take a look at the schedule for today:
linuxhaxor.net: Gone are the days when the only source of linux distribution was the web. Today, we will look at some of the popular distributors/resellers, who are selling pre-installed linux systems for home users (not servers).
oneopensource.it: What’s cooking in Mozilla’s labs? We decided to make some questions to Aza Raskin, user interface guru, son of the great Jef Raskin, founder of Humanized Inc., music search engine Songza and above all Head of User Experience for Mozilla Labs.

blog.ibeentoubuntu: I do 95% of everything in Debian Gnome, but my school standardized on Windows XP. As a result, there are times when I'm required to use it. There are a few things that I really miss, even when the work is shallow and quick.
happylinuxthoughts.blogspot: After my last review of Puppy Linux, I was very skeptical about the new release. But, I'll say right away that it has improved quite a bit.
celettu.wordpress: I love fast, simple, lightweight applications, so when I discovered Transmission it seemed like a godsend. Transmission is a bittorrent client that’s just that: small, simple, fast, easy. But lately they changed the layout of their file-selection dialogue, and in my opinion, screwed it completely.

blogbeebe.blogspot: The latest release, 2.1, was just announced on Distrowatch. Based on Ubuntu, it strips out all the proprietary bits, including codecs and drivers, and forces the end user to initially use the open and free equivalents if they exist. If they don't then you're stuck without features such as 3D acceleration, DVD playback, QuickTime movies, etc.
