carsonspost.wordpress: A year ago I had the frightening Windows realization that between Anti-Virus, Firewall and Defender (what does it do?) software, my PC was still not secure. I had a couple of days of stress as I tried to unload some ugly spyware. I found this really upsetting, unbelievably frustrating and that was the point where I no longer trusted Windows.
linux.com: Confucius say, "Lao-tzu has passed us the Tao. In his mouth, there are no teeth but only a tongue. The hard ones (teeth) died, but the soft one (the tongue) lives; the soft power is stronger than the hard power. That's the Tao!" Open source is such a soft power.
kernelTRAP: "It doesn't seem to pull any dependency nor affect any other external piece of code unless I'm missing something, so it's a perfect example of what we've been discussing back then: there is just no point not merging it at any time right ? :-)"

zdnet blogs: Last night at the Skype Developer Open House in San Jose, Skype presented the public roadmap for its API (Application Programming Interface) which outlines plans for a Web service API for Skype and the open sourcing of Skype4Com.
Red Hat Mag: When Fedora 7 was released, one of the big features that we talked about was the idea of customized spins of the distribution. Now that Fedora 8 is on the way, it’s useful to look and see how we have done, and what sort of custom spins have been created.
All About Linux: One month back I had written about a content aware image rescaling technology. And I hoped that this technology will be incorporated in Gimp in the future. Well we didn't have to wait that long.
SearchEnterpriseLinux blog: The script “survf” monitors a file so you can check whether this file is growing (e.g. during ftp transfer). If you link it to the name “survp,” it monitors a running process… when the process terminates it sounds a bell and terminates.
the crumb: Tonight I updated my Ubuntu install to the latest Gutsy beta (7.10). So far so good. This is the first upgrade I’ve done where it correctly set my widescreen monitor resolution.
inquirer.net: Security is the number one reason why end-users deploy open-source software, according to a recent survey by research analyst IDC. Results suggest end-users in India and China deploy more open-source more than in Australia and Korea.

And: Open source test successful
Jucato’s blog: I have a somewhat indifferent attitude towards Kopete. I use it just because it happens to be the only viable one among its peers, but it most probably wouldn’t be my messaging client of choice if I were to find a better KDE alternative. But a few days ago, someone gave me a reason to love Kopete a bit more. Introducing Onion 75!

Chris Pirillo: I think Microsoft has given up on Vista behind the scenes. I’m sending this via email because well, I know it sounds like tinfoil hat time, but I think there’s some validity to it.
geek00l.blogspot: People who come from Unix background always have the real guts, and I bet you know what is RTFM all about. In fact it is Read The Fun Manual when you don't know how to use the commands or understand the technical section, sounds polite isn't it ;P
bcs.org: He hates cellphones, but thinks that acceptance of the open source concept is now taken for granted - in a good way. BCS managing editor Brian Runciman interviewed Linus Torvalds after he received the BCS Lovelace Medal.
liquidat: The KDE 4.0 Beta 3 release was shifted to October 10. Additionally the release team specified the KDE parts which have to be ready at the beta release date or which might otherwise be a showstopper.
zarro boogs: Performance matters more than ever in the browser space, and even as the Web grows up and gets bigger we need to continue to push harder on getting smaller and faster. The Firefox team is going to put a really big stake in the ground on performance, with the bulk of the focus on cleaning up our own house.

arstechnica: We have previously discussed Empathy, an open source instant messaging client and toolkit that is part of the Telepathy project. Empathy has officially been proposed for inclusion in GNOME 2.22, making Telepathy and the Mission Control connection management framework potential external dependencies.
Also: GNOME 2.22 planning: GIO and GVFS proposed for inclusion
inforworld blogs: This morning I read through an interesting translation of a 10 question written interview between members of the Brazilian Linux Community and Novell. Of course there are some revealing tidbits about Mono and ODF (two areas of strange attraction between Novell and Microsoft), but I found the following quote of particular interest:
o'reilly blogs: My friend Dave just built a machine to run CentOS. Last night he lamented that he didn’t like the video player. I cringed, “Is it well-known free software video player? I’ve not had much luck dealing with the developers and I recommend another well-known free software video player.” Another friend, Jim, snickered. “This is what I hate about Linux. There’s just too much choice.”
linuxdevices: A research firm serving the mobile phone industry has published an 18-page whitepaper about open source licensing. Entitled "GPLv2 vs. GPLv3," the paper examines the meteoric rise of open source software, and the forces that shaped each license, before concluding with an extremely detailed point-by-point comparison.
cybernews: I started off my morning with some Ubuntu 7.10 action since the first Beta had just been released. I downloaded the 688MB ISO image, burned it to CD, and got started immediately with the Live CD.
