- ... and much more.
blogs.zdnet.com: The other day I was talking with a bunch of other tech heads about the ongoing Windows vs. Mac vs. Linux market share war and why. “It all revolves around killer apps,” pipes up one of the tech heads. “The problem with both Apple and Linux is that neither OS has a compelling killer app driving the user base.”
opencomputer.net: Listed on the roadmap to Gnome 2.24 is the integration with Empathy, a multi-protocol IM client. For this article I tested Empathy to see how it works and if it is better or worse then Pidgin (currently my favorite IM client).
blogs.computerworld.com: I have noticed that Linux is a hot topic on Digg right now. The OS - and, let's face it, Linux is easier to define when we just view it as an OS - has been gaining momentum ever since Windows Vista turned into a nightmare for Microsoft.

And: Desktop Linux as a Service: Will it Work?
emanuele-gentili.com: It is a Linux distribution distributed as a Live CD which resulted from the merger of WHAX and the Auditor Security Collection. I talked with Mati Aharoni about new release now in developement, and he said to me that has made the decision to abandon slackware for Ubuntu in next BackTrack version (4).
gizmodo.com: A few weeks ago we ran some rumored specs of Dell's answer to the Eee, the Dell Inspiron 910 (aka Mini Inspiron and Inspiron Mini). Now we've gotten our hands on the full (internal) 910 web documentation.
And: Linux netbook uses Chinese chip
linuxjournal.com: Four years ago I wrote an article for the Linux Journal about my use of Linux software for music instruction. A lot has changed since then, so I thought I should update that article to reflect my current use of Linux in my work as a music teacher. I'll follow the presentation of materials as I organized it in the original article, but first I'll share some observations about the changing nature of my trade.
0xdeadbeef.com: Since Stuart landed the Qt port into mozilla-central the other day and Ryan Paul wrote an article on Qt and Mozilla I thought it might be worth it to add some context to that work.
reghardware.co.uk: Thankfully, Acer has taken a slightly more restrained view of what constitutes an SCC. Its Aspire One is available in just three basic flavours. On the desk in front of us, we have the least expensive, most basic model, the 8GB and Linux in MacBook-envy white, the most pure iteration of the SCC concept to date, in our opinion.
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: Ubuntu is well known in user circles as the cool kids' Linux. It's available pre-installed on PCs and laptops from Dell and from numerous smaller computer vendors. What Ubuntu hasn't been known as is a Linux distribution that matters to CIOs and IT managers. Things are changing.
blog.lizardwrangler: I’m thrilled to announce that Mark Surman is joining the Mozilla Foundation as our new Executive Director. Mark joins us after a long period of getting to know — and being known by — Mozilla contributors.
hehe2.net: When it comes to Linux there are 3 kinds of people, those who never heard of it, those who are afraid of it, and those who hate it and spread falsities about it. I don’t really care about the first, they probably aren’t really technologically literate anyways, as long as they have E-mail they are content. While the second group is the result of the actions of the third. Let’s hit two birds with one stone shall we?

zen.org: I’m waiting a few hours at the Thompson Toyota, my Prius is getting some minor work done to it to pass state inspection, it still takes a few hours. I wiggle the mouse, and up pops the Ubuntu Heron! Wow!
meandubuntu.wordpress: Well, I gave KDE a whirl, but it’s not ready for me yet, so I thought I might try out XFCE. The first thing I wanted to do was get mono and mono apps off my system, just to see where that would put me. I lost three apps.
beranger.org: Using Mandriva has always been a love-hate relationship for me. Mandriva's distros were attractive, but quite buggy. In old times, whatever you could get for free was already outdated: I still remember the frustration. In recent times, it was mostly about the random bugs.
linux.com: NimbleX, a Slackware-based distribution, advertises itself as "the new wave of Linux." However, what is appealing in NimbleX -- its speed and small footprint and the resulting selection of alternative software choices -- will likely strike veteran GNU/Linux users as being very old school.
ostatic.com: Forget special sale prices on calculators and dorm room furniture, Fedora has the ultimate back-to-school offer -- a schloarship program for college-bound students who contribute to free software and the Fedora Project.

internetling.com: What a week! I’ve been working on my podcast so I’m a bit behind on posting. Here’s an interesting compilation of Linux distribution which resemble Apple’s Mac OS 10. They might not be identical, but you guys who like Apple’s design might appreciate the fact yu can get something like it, with the nice-on-the-inside GNU/Linux kernel, out-of-the-box. For free.
blogs.zdnet.com: In the name of defining jargon, Forbes this week tries a complete rewrite of open source history. This is accomplished by someone named Dan Woods, who calls his company Evolved Media.
