blog.pavlov.net: As the web and web browsers have matured, people have started expecting different things out of them. Web usage patterns have changed, so too have our strategies on how to effectively make use of system resources such as memory.
Matthew Aslett: In his recent Forbes article Cash Me Out, Dan Lyons likens the assimilation of open source into the mainstream IT industry to the incorporation of gay culture into mainstream culture.
tectonic.co.za: Here’s something useful to pass the idle hours with while you wait for your next particulary large download to complete: UbuntuStats. The UbuntuStats site tracks Ubuntu development in real time.
opensuse.org: Issue 13 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. In this week’s issue:
Announcing the Official openSUSE Forums, Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 Packages, and Creating a DVD from YouTube videos.
computerworld.com: Taipei-based Asustek Computer Inc. proved that less can be more with its 2-lb., $400 Eee PC. Since then, other subnotebooks have followed in the Eee's wake. However, only the Everex CloudBook has dared to take the Eee head-on, matching its weight, screen and keyboard size, as well as its reliance on the Linux operating system, open-source applications and a $400 price tag.
kdubois.net: I just needed to express how impressed I just found myself with how well the linux kernel was working this morning. I was on my AMD X2 3800 processor and was simultaneously listening to some tunes on rhythmbox, watching an XVid movie, and browsing the web while emerging on both cores without any noticeable slowdowns in any the realtime activities I was doing!
blogs.the451group: The SFLC has settled yet another GPL lawsuit, this time agreeing to dismiss its case against High-Gain Antennas. Similar to prior agreements to comply, the latest GPL settlement comes with some key requirements for the defendant, which was sued for distributing GPL’d BusyBox code in its wireless connectivity devices without properly sharing source code.
blogs.ittoolbox: One of the most common uses I use scripting for is parsing log files. You know, those incredibly verbose files that we should read to find out if we have been h4x0r3d or not. Unfortunately there is a lot of information in those logs that we are not interested in at the time. So we write scripts to filter out the required information.
Paul Murphy: The most basic, and traditional, Wintel vs Lintel TCO comparison argued that since the hardware is the same, everything comes down to the cost of the OS and applications licenses -all of which are free for Lintel and expensive for Wintel.
itwire.com: It's taken a remarkably short time for the One Laptop Per Child project to change from positioning itself as the saviour of children in developing countries to becoming a toady for Microsoft.

jonreagan.wordpress: Here's another biased review, this time coming from PC Magazine. The article is a comparison of Mac OS 10.5, Vista, XP, and Ubuntu. Of the four systems, Ubuntu got the lowest score. See where I am going with this?
cnet.com: Doesn't that headline state the obvious? Doesn't the entire world know that Linux simply doesn't offer the kind of mass-market appeal Windows and Mac OS X do? I guess not.
linux.com: Given all the fuss in the news recently about compromised Linux/Apache servers being responsible for infecting Windows users with malware when they visit those compromised sites, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at three of the best rootkit/malware detection tools available for Linux desktop and SOHO users.
crunchbang.org: Over the last few days I've been testing different application launchers under Openbox. It's funny, but I was managing just fine without an application launcher until I started playing, now I'm hooked. I've experimented with a few different applications and I've finally found one that I'm really happy with, tablaunch.
linuxworld.com: Back in February, we published a discussion of the vmsplice() exploit which showed how the failure to check permissions for a read operation led to a buffer overflow within the kernel. Subsequently, a linux-kernel reader pointed out that the article stopped short of a complete explanation: this is not an ordinary buffer overflow exploit.
news10now.com: I just love my friends in the programming community. They're always showing me new and useful tools that I'd never have located otherwise. The latest one (thanks to Ed) is called Spicebird. It's similar to the better-known Thunderbird, but even more complete.
linuxtidbits.wordpress: I wrote about gaming in Linux before and left out my favorite all-time best game: Wesnoth. I said that I would write about it so that’s what I’m going to do today.
earthweb.com: In the rush for market share, many people seem to lose sight of the fact that the goal of GNU/Linux and free software is not popularity in itself, but the wide acceptance of a set of ideals.
