arstechnica.com: Though sales of the Nintendo DS and the PlayStation Portable are strong, there are many who use the devices exclusively for homebrew applications. While some of these homebrew devices or homebrew-enabling schemes are looked upon less than favorably by the big manufacturers, there are some companies who see the value in releasing devices capable of homebrew software. Enter the Wiz.
compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: Here is an idea, build OLPC XO’s Sugar interface for openSUSE this hackweek. As sugar is designed specifically for children, getting that interface to openSUSE would enable administrators in developing countries to run Sugar on normal desktops.
feelwindows.blogspot: Linux has been there as an operating system for a long time and even though it's free, it has not been able to take a sizeable market share out of the Windows operating system. I tried to find out what are the main reasons behind this.
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: Want to know a dirty little secret? We, Linux and open-source users, love Apple's devices. Of course, that's not true of all of us. I'm sure Richard M. Stallman wouldn't be caught dead with an iPhone in his pocket.

techtarget.com: While most computer science students learn skills on x86 servers, their counterparts at the University of Arkansas will now get hands-on experience on a new IBMsystem z900 running Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise.
celettu.wordpress: A couple of days ago I came to a realisation: I run so many gnome applications I might as well try to use Gnome again, instead of Openbox.
blogs.zdnet: The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) has issued a warning for what it calls “active attacks” against Linux-based computing infrastructures using compromised SSH keys.
blog.linuxtoday: FOSS applications for Windows don't seem to get the same respect and support that their Linux counterparts do, even when they are genuine 100% GPL or BSD or whatever a person's favorite license is. Some say they are good introductions to FOSS; some think they're tainted and nasty and prop up the evil monopolist.
itwire.com: There was once a time when the now-defunct Open Source Development Labs, then the employer of Linus Torvalds, used to style itself as the centre of gravity of Linux. Not long after, the edifice toppled under its own weight - probably the force of gravity shifted. Or maybe the restructuring it had to undergo in 2005 and 2006 was the cause.
linux.com: If you follow technology trends, you have probably heard of the semantic desktop -- a data layer for annotating and sharing the information in your computer. But what you may not be aware of is that the semantic desktop is not a distant goal, but scheduled to arrive at the end of 2008. And, when it does, the idea will probably be implemented through the work done by the Nepomuk project, and, most likely, by KDE first.
mozilla.com: You’re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local San Francisco restaurant that neither of you has been to. You’d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed. Enter Ubiquity.
linuxfud.wordpress: It is interesting to see the tides turning though. The press used to be full of “Microsoft Does It Again!” and “Is Linux Really Ready?” stories. Now, it is Microsoft’s turn.
ostatic.com: Have you ever heard of the Fiduciary Licence Agreement - the FLA? No, it's not an alterative to other free and open source license agreements that you're probably already familiar with, like the GPL, Mozilla License, and BSD License. Rather, it's an adjunct to any copyleft license.
linuxdevices.com: Pure has announced an Internet radio that runs embedded Linux and provides FM and DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) playback. The Evoke Flow radio offers WiFi connectivity and media streaming from a connected PC, and is paired with a Internet search portal called the Pure Lounge.
linux.com: If like first-person shooters, you'll love Sauerbraten. Sauerbraten blends the best of FPSes like Quake and Max Payne to give you a unique gaming experience.
bogs.techrepublic.com: I have been around the Linux community for more than 10 years now. From the very beginning, I have known that there are basic differences between Linux and Windows that will always set them apart. This is not, in the least, to say one is better than the other. It’s just to say that they are fundamentally different.
junauza.com: "How to use Linux" --According to Google Trends, a lot of people have been using this phrase to get information on learning how to use Linux. Because of this, I decided to write my own simplified "how to" for those who are already in the right mood to finally try Linux.
ostatic.com: A major problem with the officially distributed version of Perl on Red Hat Enterprise Linux has led to a firestorm of complaints among developers. The problem, which also manifests itself on some versions of the Fedora and CentOS Linux distributions, means that some programs will take more than 100 (yes, one hundred) times longer to execute under Red Hat than other distributions.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: As a live CD antiX is quite superb: It loads very quickly, runs really smoothly and has enough software to keep me productive. The basics are covered with applications.
