linux.com: If you cannot face the thought of hunting down and re-installing all of your Firefox extensions one by one on a second computer, you need, appropriately, an extension to simplify the task. CLEO, the Compact Library Extension Organizer, can package all your extensions and themes into one installable .xpi file.

linux-foundation.org: Jim Zemlin’s conversation with Linus Torvalds continues with the posting of Part II of their interview. Linus comments on a variety of topics including patents, internal and external competition, the broader adoption of Linux, Microsoft and much more.
thomb.livejournal.com: BibleWorks 7 on Linux, using Wine 0.9.53, is mostly happy. Here are the problems I've had.
robertpeaslee.com: Ubuntu seems to be the latest, greatest thing in the world of operating systems. The creators of Ubuntu have done some good things in terms of making Linux easier to use and in providing guidance for Linux newbs. But with newbs you bring ignorance, and there are a couple things I’ve been seeing that are kind of ridiculous.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I just want to share some of linux ecstacy and agony with you. Linux is a great server. In my office we never had any problem running web servers on Mandriva, RHEL or Debian. But I wonder why Linux Desktop is still rough around the corners.
linmaya.blogspot: Choosing a Linux distribution is actually a matter of personal faith.

weblog.obso1337.org: First off, cheers to Jonathan for his great work with Kubuntu and KDE. Everyone should go read his reasons why Kubuntu is good for KDE. I’d also like to share some of my own comments about Kubuntu and KDE.
fuzzz.gaulin.ca: It’s officially been a week since I purchased an Asus EeePC. I’ve been reading a lot about them since they were released last year and now that I’ve got it setup and tweaked to my liking I’m very pleased with my purchase. Over the last week of usage, my EeePC has morphed and evolved quite a bit.
jpstacey.info/blog: Most commercial support for Linux distributions still consists of monolithic installations, wrapped up with checksums to prevent you tampering with them, and installing themselves on your computer in whatever location and potentially harmful fashion they fancy.
