ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I am of the not-so-humble opinion that Fedora’s upgrade process is about as pleasant as being forced to walk through the desert without a canteen of water. They did mention in Red Hat Magazine that they were working on Fedora Pre-Upgrade to address some of the issues.
ubuntujourney.wordpress: Lately I’ve noticed an emerging trend of Ubuntu bashing. It seems that the Linux community has now included Ubuntu bashing as a extension of the Microsoft bashing fringe.
zdnet.com.au: Frustrated software programmers unable to sign up to the voluntarily run community of developers behind the Debian GNU/Linux operating system have criticised the management of the project.
pcmag.com: Spring is the season when beta versions of long-established Web browsers make their first tentative flights out of the developers' nests, before the full-fledged versions emerge sometime later in the year. We looked at test versions of three browsers that are on their way to becoming significant.
computerworld.com.au: Yet another six months has passed and another Ubuntu Linux release is out the door. April 2008 signals the release of Ubuntu 8.04. Ubuntu releases Hardy Heron, closer to desktop nirvana.

divyad.wordpress: Much talk has been happening about Wubi that is going to be a part of Ubuntu 8.10. However not many know that this feature is already available in Mandriva Linux. Finally lets talk a bit about UNetbootin.
phoronix.com: Last week we shared the sad reality about Unreal Tournament 3 that it's been 5 months and there's still no Linux client. It was mentioned in the news posting that forum moderators for Epic Games, the company behind the Unreal franchise, had been deleting posts of users who had inquired about the status of this game for Linux. There is now confirmation that they are taking such actions to suppress the UT3 Linux talk.
linuxjournal.com: As the name suggests, Writer's Tools is a collection of various utilities that might be useful for writers. It's a little rough in places, being only at version 0.9.27, and possibly a little idiosyncratic, but like Emacs, Writer's Tools is so varied that it undoubtedly has something for everyone, regardless of their writing habits.
Caitlyn Martin: Last month distro-review ran an article titled 10 ways that Linux is outgrowing the stereotype and becoming the best OS. While I agreed with all 10 points in the article something just didn’t sit right with me. I bookmarked the article and gave it a good long think.

aplawrence.com: There's plenty of stuff out there that tells you why you should embrace Linux and make it your own. That's not what this is: if you want to run Windows, go ahead. You may be perfectly happy. So why?
