blogs.zdnet.com: Let’s face it, deciding to nuke your existing operating system installation and replace it with a completely different OS isn’t the sort of task that you should approach lightly. One of the barriers to Linux adoption is the fact that many people find the idea of wiping their Windows installation a daunting thing.

phoronix.com: Last year AMD introduced the flagship 790 Chipset series as part of their Spider Platform for use with the Phenom processors and Radeon HD 3800 graphics. Until earlier this month when AMD introduced the 780 Series, missing was any chipset with integrated graphics capabilities supporting these first AMD quad-core processors. Now we have AMD's 780G and 780V.
thevarguy.com: The VAR Guy is in the market for a small office printer that supports Ubuntu Linux, Mac OS X and Windows XP. Alas, most PC companies do a lousy job describing which of their printers work with Ubuntu. Which means they’re leaving easy money on the table. Here’s our resident blogger’s sad story so far.
dthomasdigital.wordpress: I am a Ubuntu believer, as one of those total converts for almost two years now Ubuntu has answered my every computing need. So what’s the side effect you say?

On the eve of our Open Source Business Conference, we spoke with 11 thought leaders about the current open source climate to uncover the most vibrant themes and conflicts shaping open source today.
polishlinux.org: Sometimes I get the feeling that Web 2.0 is just too fancy for Linux, loads of tools, websites, and apps are being developed without taking Linux users into consideration. Here I will take you through some of the best tools and apps out there and how to get them up and running on your Ubuntu (assume 7.10).
metimes.com (UPI): The U.S. National Security Agency has released its own version of the open-source computer operating system Linux, which offers enhanced security for users.
blog.linuxtoday: It seems that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program's XO laptop is just popping up all over lately. Twice in as many weeks, mention of the green and white laptop has appeared in the most unusual places.
kmandla.wordpress: I’m running through my first installation with the Hardy beta; until now, all of my Hardy systems were dist-upgrades until now? It looks like the alternate installation sequence — and the whole CD really, got a nice makeover.
lwn.net: There have been some questions on the Gentoo lists about the unexplained delay in the 2008.0 beta release. What's going on is that two of the key developers involved have suffered a severe personal loss and are not currently able to work on that release.
blogs.techrepublic.com: A few weeks ago a colleague of mine sent me a link to a story about a man who clustered together sixteen Playstation 3s using Linux to simulate black holes. I had forgotten about this until yesterday when I was thinking “What can’t Linux do?” People have made Linux take on tasks no one probably thought it capable of.
raiden.net: I began installing Linux quite a few years ago starting with Red Hat 9 "Shrike". Though this was not too long ago in the physical world it was an eon ago in digital time. Todays modern Linux distribution or operating system is a different animal all together than those of days gone by.

arstechnica.com: We often hear from readers who want to track the development process of their favorite Linux distribution but don't know where to start. The mainstream desktop Linux distributions have adopted short release cycles because the open source desktop software ecosystem tends to evolve incrementally and at a rapid pace.
linux.com: Two things annoy me a lot when I'm browsing the Internet. First, I hate unclickable links, where I have to select the text link, open a new tab, paste the link, then press enter. I'd much rather deal with links that I can just click to open. The other issue is being forced to manually edit a URL in the address bar if I want to browse up one level on a site. Linkification and Uppity are two Firefox extensions that make my annoyances go away.
itwire.com: A lot has been said of late concerning the way Apple slipped in a brand-new Safari installer into the Apple Software Update used by many hundreds of thousands of iPod-wielding Windows users. Let me offer a new perspective, from the open source point of view.
