flors.wordpress: I have been trying to follow the intense debate tagged GTK+ 3.0 and actually covering a lot more, from the longest post to the shortest. If I was into film criticism I would say that the story is evolving from decadentism to apocalypticism, with elements of final time, esoterism, conspiracy, dualism and reincarnation. It’s confusing… but solvable.
groklaw.net: It's time for a song for SCO to sing, to cheer itself up. Scott Lazar has come up with one. Hopefully Yoko won't sue us, because you sing it to a tune that sounds a lot like Yesterday. Feel free to hum along in your minds.
riehle.org: Open source software has changed the rules of the game, impacting significantly the economic behavior of stakeholders in the software ecosystem. In this new environment, developers strive to be committers, vendors feel pressure to produce open source products, and system integrators anticipate boosting profits.
techtarget.com: Linux security may seem daunting, but there are a host of best practices to simplify the maze. Recently, Steve Grubb of Red Hat Inc. outlined some important security principles, including minimizing admin access, the increasing sophistication of SELinux and the importance of auditing systems.
openlogic.com/blogs: In my last post, I question the accuracy of the CIO.com survey. One of the numbers I was skeptical about was "Nearly half of the survey respondents, 45 percent, are using desktop applications such as OpenOffice.org"
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: Because I dared to try and access facebook with firefox 3, and all the cookies disabled, it won't let me back on there with firefox ever again, even though all the cookies have been enabled again!!
internetling.com: The first half of 2008 has seen some really cool releases, such as OpenSuSe 11.0, Fedora 9 and Ubuntu 8.04.1, and some really lame ones too, like Gentoo 2008.0 and Linux XP 2008. We’re not done yet, though. There are still some pretty major distro releases, which will blow your mind. Let’s dive in and see!
gpl3.blogspot: Over the past couple of weeks, Sourceforge has been doing some maintenance and updates. This backed up some of their data which we use to keep track of the GPL3 numbers. So now we are catching up on our data collection to bring them back up to date.
Matt Asay: I admire Linus Torvalds' candor (This is the guy who freely admits his own family doesn't use the Linux desktop, after all), as well as his foresight. In an excellent interview, Torvalds covers a range of topics, including the Linux operating system's place in history:
opensuse.org: Exactly one year ago the openSUSE News site went live to provide users with the latest news and an event calendar. 19 authors posting under their own names and some one-time contributors wrote 246 stories (of which 122 were submitted to Digg) and filled the calendar with 170 entries.
linux.com: Last weekend a friend was moaning about endless problems with Windows XP on his desktop PC. We installed Ubuntu 7.04 on it. The problems went away. That started me thinking about my own "daily driver" computer, a Dell Latitude that also runs Ubuntu 7.04, and it made me realize that I hadn't thought about my laptop or its operating system in many months.
justlookdifferent.com: In openSUSE there is a feature called Auto-Login. In short it means that the root can decide which user account should be started as default upon boot, without displaying a login prompt. Though for me it is a possible weakness in my security management.
saleem-khan.blogspot: Recently I faced two incidents when I had to format my flash drive as it would simply refuse to open at all just because it was infected with some nasty viruses from my office computers.
fabrizioballiano.net: A quick resume of what the most important (IMHO) things users will get with the next Ubuntu release: Intrepid Ibex

phoronix.com: While AMD's financial outlook has been bleak with it closing down 12% today, if you're a Linux user -- particularly one with a quad-core Phenom processor -- there is good news to report from the AMD camp.
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:
