linuxevangelist.blogspot: Currently, the most talked about and criticized development project is the 4th major version released by the KDE team – KDE4.

it.toolbox.com/blogs: Linux is not a monolithic monstrosity where everything is combined and intertwined into a hazy blob of bits and bytes. It actually consists of many of small discrete components, each of which is designed to do a single job, and do that job well.
itwire.com: One security outfit which conducted a study into the use of open source software in the enterprise, the results of which are published today, seems to think so. It states that "Open Source Software (OSS) development communities have yet to adopt a secure development process and often leave dangerous vulnerabilities unaddressed."
blogs.zdnet.com: The big news from Ubuntu is they’re aiming at the server market with a bundle that includes an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application or Point of Sale (POS) software.

cnet.com: There's no OS to speak of, no optical drive, just 4GB of flash storage and 256MB of RAM, and you're limited to a 400MHz Freescale 5121E processor with integrated graphics under the hood.
