opensuse.org: The openSUSE team is proud to announce the first Beta release of openSUSE 11.0! There are many exciting enhancements and features in the new release. Among these is the incredibly fast package management (libzypp), KDE 3.5.9 and 4.0.3, GNOME 2.22.1, a beautiful new installer, installable live CDs and much more.
lexlocilinux.blogspot: I recently consulted with a company regarding various matters, one of which was IT. I advised them that they could substantially cut their IT costs by using Linux. I expected the usual resistance, but instead was greeted with a smile and an emphatic "Absolutely!".
groklaw.net: Le Monde Informatique and LeMagIT are reporting on a leaked email from Marc Meyer of the French government agency, DGME, which urges that OOXML be quickly added to the official list of formats that can be used by government entities, a document titled RGI, and then the finalized v1.0 of RGI be quickly published, in effect locking in OOXML, before the appeals process is completed.
osweekly.com: Undoubtedly, there have been marked improvements made in the security and stability of the application. But to be honest, I was right about one prediction - a total lack of offering anything compelling over the previous release.

osweekly.com: In the last article, we talked about the new Zonbu notebook, what it features and a few of its benefits and drawbacks. However, we were far from done with our analysis, and with that, here’s part II of our Zonbu review that presents our verdict on the low cost Linux notebook.
downloadsquad.com: Do you forget stuff? Do you wonder where the heck you put the keys when they're in your right hand? We're willing to bet you can still benefit from Tasque, even if you just need reminders about the things normal people put on their to-do lists.

raiden.net: PERSONAL computers with Linux pre-installed have been springing up all over the place in recent months. Now Shuttle, the Taiwanese company famous for making small but perfectly formed PCs, have gotten in on the act. I’ve been spending some time in the company of their LinuXPC SD3002Q, which is sold with openSUSE 10.3 Linux pre-installed.

And: Number 9, number 9. Fedora 9 Preview has been cleared for takeoff!
limulus.wordpress: Basically, Novell and Red Hat won’t be trying to get consumer desktop market share, focusing instead only on the ‘enterprise’ desktop market; Fedora and openSUSE thus appear to be relegated to ‘hobbyist OS’ level. Ubuntu is now THE distro of choice for home use, with no major competitors, but I think we’ve known that for some time.
liquidat.wordpress: The new Laptop is almost fully supported under Linux. While the install process wasn’t really easy, the hardware was afterwards detected without a problem. The new laptop works like a charm. After few days I am already sure that my money was well spent. The hardware is almost fully supported, and everything I tested works like expected.
osweekly.com: Most people these days think of Everex as the company that’s looking to bring Linux-powered desktop PCs with their own brand of Linux to the masses. But did you know that in many ways, they are in a position to do what Dell should have done from day one into the Ubuntu deal?
linuxworld.com: For an executive who had just had his company bought for a cool billion a few months ago and was on the eve of announcing a major update to his business' flagship database program, former MySQL CEO Marten Mickos, now Sun Microsystems' senior vice president for databases, didn't look comfortable.

lucas-nussbaum.net/blog: I am very happy that 19 contributors who were waiting for their accounts, sometimes for a very long time, became Debian Developers today. This is great news for them, and for the project as a whole.
computerworlduk.com/blogs: Some people get sniffy about OpenOffice.org, calling it mickey mouse in comparison to the “serious” and “grown-up” Microsoft Office. That may have been a vaguely plausible jibe for version 1, but I've found version 2 to be incredibly fast and powerful – it really does everything I need in an office suite, and it does it well. And yet OpenOffice.org rarely gets the respect it deserves.
