gentoo.org: The May issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter has been released. In this month's issue: Gentoo Foundation status, Summer of Code interview, network monitoring, and more!
ubuntu.com: Welcome to the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue #92 for the week May 18th - May 24th, 2008. In this issue we cover: Ubuntu Developer Summit Intrepid Ibex, Ubuntu Live canceled, new Ubuntu Membership Approval Boards to meet, new Ubuntu Universe Contributors, a new Launchpad podcast, and much, much more.
watchingthenet.com: One thing that frustrated me the most with Firefox 2 was trying to view security information for individual sites.
ostatic.com: Space agencies were some of the first places you could find open source software "in the wild". Being natural early adopters, cash-strapped and very inquisitive they naturally took to the concept.
phoronix.com: Earlier this month we announced that AMD would soon be releasing their Stream SDK for Linux, and just before the start of the weekend this inaugural release had occurred. The Linux release of the AMD Stream SDK v1.1 Beta brings both CAL and Brook+ for those using ATI/AMD graphics hardware. This v1.1 Beta release is also in tune with the new beta release for Microsoft Windows XP.
celettu.wordpress: I’ve recently upgraded my pc with new hardware, and I’ve been using it as a test machine ever since, something to try the new Ubuntu or Mandriva on. Both Mandriva and Ubuntu ran well on that old PC.
purinchu.net: Grandma goes to the store to see about replacing the computer with something inexpensive. Really inexpensive. After a bit more asking the clerk goes, “Well, we do have 1 machine in the back. Every store has only gotten one, but it’s only $200. Of course, it turned out that it runs Linux.

blogs.computerworld: Whatever drugs Steve Ballmer is on they must be very, very good. That's the only explanation I can come up with for Ballmer telling the Australian press that he's "amazing pleased" with Vista sales.
liquidat.wordpress: While today many kernel modules are shipped in the vanilla kernel and some missing ones (like uvc) are added later on by the distributors, some kernel modules are not shipped yet and might never be shipped with the mainline kernel. Now, several years after DKMS was first introduced to the world it finally starts to appear at different places.
itwire.com: Most all modern home computer users are switched on to the fact they have to protect their computer from nasties: anti-virus, anti-spam, firewalls have all entered the common vernacular. If you don’t use 'that' operating system from Redmond though does this still apply? And what packages should you use?
puppylinux.org/blogs: While wandering the Ubuntu site (www.ubuntu.com) to take a look at the new Hardy Heron / 8.04 LTS version, I went all philosophical and tried to think of any lessons that the Puppy Community could learn from that of Ubuntu.
Josh Saddler: I wiped Gentoo off my old Toshiba laptop a couple of nights ago, and have been trying out binary distros with a smaller-is-better philosophy. I need a distro that is lightweight, mostly self-contained, yet also has a decent package repository for the edge cases. So far I've been through Fluxbuntu, TinyMe, and SliTaz.
itreviews.co.uk: The maturity of OpenOffice is fast winning over many of those still deep-rooted in a Microsoft Office way of working, and while this latest release isn't likely to tip too many more over the edge, it's a further move forward in the quest to be accepted as the legitimate alternative that it already is.
In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Debian Etch server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project.
While we're all waiting for PCLOS 2008 to be released, we were treated to a kissing cousin yesterday with the release of TinyMe 2008.0. It's a small lightweight distro featuring the LXDE desktop with lots of handy apps. I thought I'd take it for a little test run this evening to see what it might be like.
