theinquirer.net: Microsoft yesterday surprised many by saying it would open the books on its software, revealing and documenting critical APIs and other information. Five more technology U-turns Microsoft took are listed here:
- Why you should care about Microsoft's open-source move
- Microsoft openness initiative proves they still don't get it
- World not open to Microsoft promises
- Korean Professor Wins Patent Lawsuit Against Microsoft
- What Microsoft is really up to
beranger.org: Currently, Zebuntu is nothing else but a rebranded, BeOS-themed XFCE variant of Ubuntu 7.10, with a new control panel (MAGIC). Now what?
techthrob.com: Google's Picasa software is a powerful tool for managing your photo collection. It provides a simple interface for organizing your pictures, as well as some easy-to-use, yet powerful image manipulation tools. However, until recently the Windows version of Picasa has had some features that put it above the Linux version.
Jeremy Allison: "How many Microsoft engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
None. They just declare darkness the new standard".
polishlinux.org: KDE 4.1 will be what everyone expected 4.0 to be — a fully functional revolutionary Linux desktop. I took a look at the revision 777000 of this desktop environment and what you get is a visual changelog describing the current progress in terms of look and feel and features.
linux.com: The installation instructions in most free software reviews aren't enough. If you decide a package sucks, how do you get rid of it? If a package rocks, how do you upgrade it? GNU Stow, a package manager for packages you compile and install yourself, provides an easy answer to both questions.
reallylinux.com: What an odd thing it is to find so many people still questioning the merits of moving to a Linux Desktop. It’s almost as though those of us who have been extensively using Windows for years now have some sort of problematic memory issue. Perhaps the proper psychology term is something like ST-PiT-MR also known as Short term pain in the tush memory relapse syndrome.
maketecheasier.com: I have used Firefox browser for a long time and I always think that I know all the features inside out. When I was told of the following seemingly simple but useful tricks, I know I was wrong.
downloadsquad.com: Photo management software for Windows makes us weep. For most people, photo management consists of loading the software (and drivers) that came from the camera manufacturer. So you've got a Nikon camera, and the photo management software is really different from your significant other's Kodak software.

techcrunch.com: Open source giant Red Hat sent a Cease and Desist letter to the DataPortability.org group today demanding the removal of the DP logo from the group's website, saying their logo is "identical to the Fedora Infinity design logo owned by Red Hat."
zdnet.com.au: While he sees the GPLv3 as "extremely good", Andrew "Tridge" Tridgell believes that the free software licence still needs strengthening. In this video interview he said that the anti-DRM provisions didn't go far enough.
bryceharrington.org: As we near in on the Inkscape 0.46 release, I've been increasingly focusing on the few remaining "critical" bugs. A lot of these are specific to the Windows port, which is a bit frustrating for those of us whose big hope in life is to *replace* Windows, not to support it.

liquidat.wordpress: With Ktorrent one of the largest external KDE projects now released a first stable KDE 4 version of their product. This also shows that KDE 4 is also accepted by external developers.
theubuntuexperiment.wordpress: While it was great fun trying to convert my mother to Ubuntu, this experiment ended up in a complete failure. Linux is not ready for the desktop, and never will be, too.
felipec.wordpress: For quite some people it seems if you use Fedora you are committing an open source sin; at best it seems as if there is no good reason to use it, or so has been my experience.
open-zone.com: I'm Ubuntu user for years now. I have gained a lot of knowledge on how to customize my Ubuntu box and how to make it better. This guide targets any Ubuntu user or any one is thinking about trying Ubuntu but it will be very useful for newbies.
techthrob.com: While it may not let you go where no man has gone before, Celestia is an amazing desktop application that lets you travel anywhere in the known Universe.
blogs.the451group: Open source fans are buzzing about Microsoft’s latest move to open its APIs, which follows along the path it has been on recently. Another announcement they may have been somewhat overshadowed is chipmaker AMD’s new open source application library project, Framewave. I would say this is just another case of companies coming around to market realities.
