qense.nl: A while ago there was a meme at Planet GNOME about the wishes for GNOME 3. Although I don’t have any influence on this, I do also have things I’d like to see in the next major release of my favourite desktop environment. But there is one thing that bugs me the most:
groklaw.net: It's been a while since we last looked in on the IP Innovation LLC v. Red Hat et al patent litigation. In fact, it's been exactly a year. The parties are deep in discovery, with trial set for April 12, 2010[PDF]. That could change, of course. But that's the date set.
efytimes.com: PC users have never had so many choices ever before. All you are stuck with is Microsoft's Windows XP, which is almost a decade old. And latest Vista -- it's just not working. So what should you do?
product-reviews.net: With the financial world witnessing what many stockbrokers have never seen in their lifetime, things are changing faster now than they normally do in finance. This change will also bring about big changes in the software industry.
linux.com: Reader Christian Nielsen wrote from Sweden to tell us he and his girlfriend have named their baby Linux, after the operating system, and attached this darling photo.
tuxmaniac.com/blog: Its been slightly more than 24 hours since I upgraded to the upcoming “bleeding edge” Intrepid Ibex edition of Ubuntu!
computingtech.blogspot: Who uses Linux? The myth from the old days is that it’s only for techies and power users. When you needed to put everything together by hand, this was clearly true. But modern distributions make Linux accessible to all.
junauza.com: The latest and as they say one of the most ground-breaking versions of Mandriva Linux has been released as scheduled. Mandriva Linux 2009 is jam-packed with exciting new features and innovations that will try to cater everyone’s desktop needs.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Only yesterday I tried OpenOffice 3.0 final. It is a mega release of OpenOffice in many ways. Even it was the much hyped release of OO.o. Overall it seems a complete overhaul of the venerable open source office suite. There are dozens of new features and improvements.
nooss.org: As you may know, this Saturday, October 11th is the annual Ohio LinuxFest (http://www.ohiolinux.org/). The Northeast Ohio Open Source Society (nooss.org) will be there this year, as in past years, doing a live webcast from the show floor.
softpedia.com: Mark Shuttleworth promised a new and breathtaking theme for the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) operating system. I think a new and professional theme will get the Ubuntu OS closer to the land of mature operating systems, such as Mac OS X, and it will have more and more devoted users.
amarok.kde.org: There has been a lot of chatter lately regarding Amarok's switch to MySQL as its only SQL backend. A decent amount is FUD -- either by people simply pushing back against change, or by people that simply don't understand the decision.

fruitsalad.org: MySQL is a database. I don't like it. It hurts my brain. A lot of things in KDE need a database, in the sense of a persistent store of indexed tabular data. At this point, both Akonadi and Amarok have picked MySQL.
ostatic.com: Over at TechRepublic, Jack Wallen details ten points to consider prior to moving your organization to Linux. Some points are far more critical for operation than others, but all require attention. Depending on the workplace and industry, it might be worth an administrator's time to consider a few other points as well.
linuxtoday.com: Ten years and going strong is quite an achievement. In that time LT has survived the dot-bomb and many changes. The archives have been maintained and are still available, which I think is pretty amazing-- you can go all the way back to the very first Linux Today story: Apache 1.3.2 is released.
linuxhaxor.net: Anyone can go to gnome-look and go through thousands of available theme, but we have decided to make a list of ten themes that we thought are a cut above the others.
linux.com: Virtualization software can help you run programs that your native Linux distro wouldn't. While Linux users have many virtualization options, none comes close to the all-encompassing VMware Workstation 6.5. Introduced last month, VMware Workstation 6.5 continues the tradition of outshining and outpacing the competition.
linuxworld.com (IDG): The Linux Foundation is holding its first End User Summit beginning Monday in New York, in an effort to bring Linux kernel developers in closer contact with users at Wall Street institutions and other major companies.
