limulus.wordpress: What if OEMs were required to sell the software separately from the hardware, BUT still be allowed to preinstall? Oh wait, what’s that other stack of disks next to the Windows envelopes? Ubuntu Linux disks? They’re FREE? And if I don’t like it I can come back next week and still buy the OEM Windows disks?
itbusiness.ca: Many small and mid-sized businesses are seriously considering Linux as an alternative operating system (OS). The Linux vs. Microsoft issue is once more on their radar screen, partly due to less than stellar reviews garnered by Vista, its undistinguished sales, and the growing popularity of open source software.
cnet.com: A few days ago, Walter Mossberg, writing in the Wall Street Journal, offered a verbal peek at the Mac user interface intended as heads-up for Windows XP users thinking of switching. I'm not a Mac user, but from reading the article, it seems that the initial learning curve for switching from Windows XP to Linux, is less than that for switching to Macs. I offer the Linux side of the various user interface aspects that Mossberg raised and contrast it with Mac OS X Leopard.
computerworld.com: A few weeks ago, the OpenSUSE Project announced the release of OpenSUSE 11.0, the "community" edition of SUSE Linux, Novell's commercial Linux distribution. Like most recent distributions, OpenSUSE is made up of the usual suspects. Once up, OpenSUSE looks pretty much like any other GNOME/KDE-based Linux distro.
salon.com: Five days before the computer genius who killed his wife led police to her body, he was remorseless and angry in defense of his innocence. I showed up at the Santa Rita Jail during visiting hours to meet Hans Reiser and I knew if I was ever going to talk with him, I had to do it before he was transferred to state prison.

The business world and the rest of the world is a marketplace. So the next time someone tries to tell you that the Linux approach of presenting a large number of distributions isn't good for the business sense of Linux, they apparently haven't been to a marketplace in a long time.
vizzzion.org: While surfing around on Teh Intarwebs, I've read complaints from people that we're doing something radically new to the user. Some of those users seem to have problems with all that "radically new" stuff.
linuxjournal.com: The announcement by the GNOME Foundation that it is appointing Stormy Peters as its Executive Director confirms a suspicion that I've harboured for a while: that we are witnessing the evolution of major open source projects into new kinds of players in the computing world.
gregdek.livejournal: Did you know that the OLPC project is the largest single "customer" of Fedora in the entire world? Despite some unfortunate statements by the project's erstwhile CEO, the OLPC project is still *extremely* focused on succeeding in its noble goal -- the education of the world's children -- with the use of free software as the central component of their software strategy.
informationweek.com/blog: It seems like once every few months there's another round of muttering about whether or not the open source world is just too diverse for its own good. So, is more really too much, especially now that Linux is edging into the mainstream?
gimpusers.com: For GIMP 2.6, the developers had a strong focus: the implementation of GEGL should replace the old GIMP core. These changes are mainly invisible to the common user, but besides that many other very useful things have been done to help users in the future. This preview gives you an overview of what has been done for GIMP 2.6.
hehe2.net: Around 3 month ago OpenOffice.org released its 2.4 boasting quite an impressive arsenal of advancements. However if you thought 2.4 was major release, then you have seen nothing! Come September, OpenOffice.org will release it’s 3.0 version! Here are some of the advancement I am most excited about:
jonrob.wordpress: What is it? A way for our community to easily share video and audio related to Fedora with each other - the mechanism we’ve chosen to do this is an RSS feed that also exists as a channel in Miro.
celettu.wordpress: Bashing KDE has become the new black. I’m pretty sure that it started out as legitimate concerns about KDE’s direction, and then some out-of-control internet flamers/trolls/foaming at the mouth crazy people jumped on the bandwagon. By now, KDE4 is actually the AntiChrist and we will all be murdered in our beds.

mozillalinks.org: While the awesome bar, download pause and resume, malware protection, the new themes, and serious performance improvements are perhaps the most representative features introduced with Firefox 3, here are some other useful ones you may not be aware:
theinquirer.net: THE THREAT OF REPRISALS from Microsoft lawyers has stopped Becta, the UK's technology quango for schools, from publishing the details of the three-year megadeal it agreed with Microsoft in April.
