0xdeadbeef.com: I think that the GNOME project is in a really strange place right now. Others called it “decadence” but I’ve been thinking of it more as a state of transition. Things are changing in GNOME and I think that it’s largely just a reflection of time.
mandriva.com: Lately it's hard to avoid the buzz about netbooks - the small, cheap laptop systems that were popularized by the Asus Eee PC (which, of course, Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring supports very well). Many in the community have asked if Mandriva is going to get directly involved in this market. Well, the answer is yes!
blogs.the451group: Dana Blankenhorn states that “Open source should support Apple over Psystar”. I have to disagree. My perspective is not based on his views on contracts and licenses (although you can read plenty about that in the talkback section) but on a couple of other issues:
thevarguy.com: Microsoft’s stock dropped sharply today because the company’s latest quarterly profits didn’t quite meet Wall Street’s expectations. Meanwhile, The VAR Guy and other open source bloggers continue to hype Red Hat and Linux as growing threats to Microsoft. But before you suggest open source will destroy Microsoft’s profits, take a look at these stagging financial figures.
mozillalinks.org: Flock has released the second beta of its forthcoming Flock 2, the Firefox-based web browser that features tight integration with most of the most popular social web services. Flock 2 beta 2 is based on Firefox 3 (3.0.1 actually) code base.
crn.com: Word was that Torvalds had apologized to OpenBSD developers. ChannelWeb asked the Linux guru if that were true and whether he had any second thoughts on his initial e-mail "flame." Here is his response:
mylro.org: Linux and UNIX-like operating systems in general are regarded as being more secure for the common user, in contrast with operating systems that have "Windows" as part of their name. Why is that?
cybernetnews.com: Now that Mozilla has shipped Firefox 3.0 they have begun working on the next milestone that’s due out at the end of 2008. Firefox 3.1 Alpha (code named Shiretoko) is should be released on July 25th.
opensuse.org: Former webservers administrator and presales consultant at S.u.S.E. he is currently working as a technical writer contributing to the openSUSE documentation and openSUSE web skin an wiki. Today you have the opportunity to meet Frank Sundermeyer!
simple-talk.com: Linus Torvalds is remarkable, not only for being the technical genius who wrote Linux, but for then being able to inspire and lead an enormous team of people to devote their free time to work on the operating system and bring it to maturity. We sent Richard Morris off to interview Linus, and find out more.
thevarguy.com: It’s finally official. Dell’s Ubuntu Linux PCs now come with the latest build of the operating system, version 8.04. That may not seem like news, but it’s actually a significant move by Dell. Here’s why.
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: I loaded Ubuntu Linux on my test laptop a couple of weeks ago more or less on a lark. After two weeks of loading a variety of different Linux distributions (but nowhere near all or even most of them!), and configuring, and experimenting, and learning, and talking with my partner and my brother, I would say the answer to that question is a qualified "Yes".
informit.com: A lot has been said about OpenSolaris, the community-supported version of Sun's Solaris operating system. Is it for you? Not if you're a SOHO user interested in business productivity applications, says A.Lizard.
blogs.zdnet.com: Bill Gates has been in “retirement” for less than a month (heading his Foundation may be harder than being Microsoft CEO) and already open source advocates have settled on a replacement.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: This must have been the briefest test run a Linux distribution had on my box. I continued until the live desktop, only to confirm the massive suspicion I had. This is yet another remaster posing as something new. The culprit: PC/OS.
ubuntu.com: For the last couple of weeks, Jordan Mantha been working behind the scenes on creating a community Ubuntu QA (quality assurance) team. For quite a while Canonical has largely driven QA efforts in Ubuntu. The community can and should step up in this area.
laptopmag.com: Mini-notebooks are getting bigger and more elaborate by the day, but Acer enters the crowded market with a simple yet solid miniature laptop for only $379. The Aspire one’s easy to use, customized Linux operating system and low price make it a compelling mini-notebook.
ubuntulinuxtipstricks.blogspot: Two weekends ago was the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Due to NASA's 50th anniversary they got one of the country spots this year. Dan walks over, looks at the photo of a woman in front of a projector, and goes "that's gnome-terminal!"
