As a longtime Ubuntu user, I've known and used some of its derivatives, such as Kubuntu. However, this time, I decided to give gOS a spin.
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: I like Linux. I like Red Hat and Fedora Linux. I use them every day. What I don't like, though, is not knowing what's what with the recent security break-in into the RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and Fedora file servers.
blogs.zdnet.com: It has become a common sight. A market develops. A leader emerges. Then the laggards say “we’re open source.” It’s beginning to look like the throwing of a bad poker hand.
phoronix.com: This time around we have our hands on the Super Micro C2SEA, which is a desktop motherboard that uses the Intel G45 Chipset and provides integrated GMA X4500 HD graphics.
raiden.net: FaunOS is a light weight Linux distribution based on Arch Linux that is designed specifically for use on USB pen drives. It offers the user a complete KDE desktop experience without being too heavy or too light. But can a distribution such as FaunOS truly be user friendly, light weight and still complete?
lazytechguy.com: Now this is beyond doubt that Ubuntu is the most searched Linux distribution. Most websites/forums claim that Ubuntu is the most popular one. Okey, agreed that Ubuntu is the most popular; what about the rest ?
Glyn Moody: As I noted the other day, ultraportables are not only hot, but they've changed the dynamics of the entire desktop sector. With the imminent arrival of the Dell effort in this sector, we've clearly reached a significant milestone, but that doesn't mean that things are going to get boring. Here's what marks the start of phase 2:
linux-wizard.net: Marcello Anni announced on Cooker ML the release of the MIB Live Games 2008.1. MIB ( Mandriva Italian Backports ) is a derived distribution of Mandriva Linux done by the Italian Mandriva community.
heise-online.co.uk: The kernel developers have been busy in the last few days with several new Linux versions being released. Kernel versions 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 in the stable series have numerous fixes and minor improvements and some drivers.

inux-foundation.org/weblogs/jzemlin: While everyone is talking about the fact that Jerry Sienfled has signed up to pitch Microsoft Vista it is worth noting another ad campaign that Microsoft launched last week entitled the “Mojave Experiment.”
superphysics.awardspace: I had said earlier that I was really going to put this one to the blade. Why? Because openSUSE 10.3 happens to be my favourite distro so far, and I was under the hope that this would be a good if not better. And I would test this with KDE 4, because that is the only real reason I would shift to 11.0 from 10.3.
linux.com: The bookmark tagging feature introduced in Firefox 3 is not particularly difficult in use: when bookmarking a Web page, enter the tags you like into the Tags field of the bookmarking dialog window and you are pretty much done. Tagging provides a more flexible way of keeping track of bookmarks than traditional folders.

networkworld.com: Although open source software has gained a place in enterprise networks alongside proprietary software, it can't seem to shake doubts about security and intellectual-property issues that have long dogged the movement.
