icculus.org: To celebrate the release of the Postal movie, Running With Scissors has released a free download version of Postal 2: Share the Pain. This is the complete multiplayer portion of the game, with the single player campaign removed.
wamukota.blogspot: Being involved in the PCLinuxOS.NL team, I was constantly focusing on KDE. I thought it was about time to get to know a distro running GNOME, so last month I tried HH. The number one distro of the planet simply couldn't get my Wifi (Broadcom 4312) up and running out of the box. Next I tried Fedora 9 and once again it was no-joy with the Wifi.
mindrobber.blogspot: A couple of weeks ago I decided that the release of Ubuntu 8.04 was as good a reason as any to finally take the plunge into the world of open source software properly.
groklaw: ComputerWorld Denmark is reporting that a strong letter of protest has been sent to ISO from Open Source Leverandørforeningen in Denmark (OSL).
polishlinux.org: Lately I have described ok_defrag — a simple tool for defragmenting Linux file systems. Today, I want to describe a specialized program designed to defrag the new Ext4 file system.

3. Releases are Rock stable
matt asay: Perhaps the biggest news in Gartner's latest "Top 10 Technologies" report is the absence of open source. Or perhaps its omnipresence. The report offers essentially the same technologies as last year's list, with some curious additions:
blogs.zdnet.com: The struggle to build open source communities is, I’m convinced, one of the biggest stories of 2008. The trend began two years ago when major projects broke away from Sourceforge and began launching their own forge sites. This began an arms race.
ec.europa.eu: The department at the French Ministry of Education that is handling purchasing of software and software licenses is increasing its Open Source offerings to some 1.5 million teachers and education workers in 250 institutes France.
junauza.com: If you ask me who's the proudest hacker in the world, I would say that it's Eric S. Raymond. ESR, as he is often called, is a computer programmer and open source software evangelist. He is also a well-known author and has been very influential in giving the term 'hacker' a positive image.

mr-oss.com: Todays rant will be based upon my history with linux, why I prefer linux, and some Windows desktop administration. Although I am 90% linux/unix in every aspect of computing, every once in a great while I get drawn into a situation that allows me to spend a few hours in the shoes of the Windows desktop administrator. Here are a few thoughts regarding the administration of end user Windows desktops and why I prefer to run linux.
Rob Enderle: This week marks several important events. I have not seen this level of competition before and Microsoft has never appeared more exposed. In my lifetime I have never seen a major vendor allow the kind of attack-marketing Apple is using without challenge. And, coupled with initial problems with Windows Vista, Microsoft suddenly looks like they are in a fight for the desktop the likes of which they – and we – have never seen.

kerneltrap.org: "In the early days, the project was conceived as a way of getting fresh blood into kernel development by giving them fairly simple but generally useful tasks and hoping they'd move more into the mainstream, "if we wind forwards to 2008, there's considerable and rising friction being generated by janitorial patches."

montanalinux.org: Proxmox is an example of the end product being greater than the sum of parts. All the technologies used to build Proxmox are not unique however putting them all together and adding a nice interface is.
LinuxToday: I read the Boycott Novell (BN) site fairly regularly, even if I don't always agree with what it has to say. I consider Roy Schestowitz, one of the site's creators, a good guy and (thus far) we have had a very cordial relationship. But the tone of the BN site is almost always in rant mode, which is not my preferred reading style; and Schestowitz and I have some other core differences too.
