cio.com: We know your company uses open-source applications. We also know many of you already have an open-source policy. Sort of. "Somewhat effective" policies are like "somewhat effective" security; clearly, there's more to be learned. CIO.com asked CIOs and other people in the trenches about what's working—and what's not.
Jim Zemlin: If you work around Linux regularly, in some ways the latest amazing news is… not that amazing. The New York Stock Exchange, where the world’s largest public companies trade their stocks, is now running on Linux. In addition the Chicago Mercantile Exchange also runs on Linux. While perhaps not as famous as the NYSE, the CME is one of the largest exchanges in the world. Even the Tokyo Stock Exchange is running on Linux. Why is this?
bioslevel.com: Palit is the second largest graphics manufacturer in the world. I'll be using the same system I've used in previous videocard reviews, and the system will be running both Windows Vista Business 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and Gentoo Linux 2008.0 64-bit. I'll look at some of the latest games in Windows, and look at a few similar benchmarks in Linux including results from the Phoronix Test Suite.
linuxhaxor.net: Today I cam across a nice article by cnet on Linux user interface. The article obviously was geared towards new users who might be interested in Linux. For new users switching to Linux or even test-driving it has never been easier. But do we really think if we want to encourage new users towards linux, we can achieve it by showing an image of a Solitaire game and (oh my gosh!) a calculator?
Matt Asay: For all the bile that I and others have spewed at Google over the years for its adoption of open source, with little in the way of contributions back, it's amazing to see the trickle of open source from Google turn into an absolute flood.
fosswire.com: It’s no coincidence that Ubuntu is now the most popular distribution of Linux for desktop PCs. It is one of the easiest distributions to set up and use for day-to-day tasks. Despite this, getting onto the ‘Linux ladder’, making your first steps into the world of Linux, can be daunting, especially without support.

linux.com: Terra Soft, the developer of Yellow Dog Linux on the PowerStation platform, is pushing the limits of design and performance with the planned mid-July release of a quad core PowerPC deskside tower that returns the Power Architecture to both the workstation and server markets at a competitive price.
cbs5.com: In an exclusive interview with CBS News at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, 44-year-old Hans Reiser said he was sorry he lied on the witness stand during his trial when he maintained he had nothing to do with 31-year old Nina Reiser's death.

opensuse.org: The 1.0 release provides all the features necessary to support building openSUSE in the public build systems and allowing direct contributions to openSUSE from all contributors. The openSUSE Build Service allows developers to create and maintain packages for openSUSE and many other Linux distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Red Hat, and Ubuntu.
giannaros.org/blog: There are a lot of nice things in the upcoming 4.1, so I’ll just briefly mention a few of those visual ones which particularly interest me:

- qGIS on Ubuntu Hardy
- Vim Editing Multiple Files and Windowing Support Under Linux / UNIX
- Fast, powerful Geany editor offers IDE features
- Using Traps Outside Of Shell Scripts On Unix Or Linux

softpedia.com: wattOS... the last frontier, the lightweight Ubuntu-based operating system is now here! Faster than anything else out there, wattOS is not just another Ubuntu clone, it is powered by the Openbox window manager, a standards compliant, fast, lightweight and extensible window manager.
groklaw.net: The processing of the ISO/IEC DIS 29500 project has been conducted in conformity with the ISO/IEC JTC 1 Directives, with decisions determined by the votes expressed by the relevant ISO and IEC national bodies under their own responsibility, and consequently, for the reasons mentioned above, the appeals should not be processed further.
phoronix.com: In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the mainline X server. While it's now in the mainline branch, Peter Hutterer, the chief developer of MPX, hasn't stopped there. One of his most recent accomplishments was modifying Compiz to support Multi-Point X.
smspillaz.wordpress: This edition we cover some of the more new plugins coming our way from both official and unofficial development trees. Highlights this week are: Cool stackswitch plugin by onestone, Eye-Candy wizard plugin, and Grid plugin for organising windows.
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.
