ubuntulinuxhelp.com: I had an inspiring thought this morning. It occurred to me how vibrant a number of Ubuntu Linux flavours there must be. Below is what some of the flavours have to say about themselves. Ubuntu Linux truly is 32 flavours and then some. Can I make it to 32? I’m not sure but let’s try…
ostatic.com: There's been discussion in the open source world about a decline in the popularity of the dominant Apache web server. These concerned are fueled largely by the Netcraft survey of the internet, which shows a 20% decline in Apache's market share over the last three years. But bearing in mind the old saw about lies and statistics, it's worth digging a bit more to see what these numbers mean.

John Lilly and Mike Schroepfer interviewed by Matt Asay, Effortless Good Firefox Add-on, and The Year of the Gecko.
Matt Asay: There is a tragic (but rich) irony in the news that Microsoft failed in its appeal to throw out Novell's decade-old antitrust lawsuit against it. On one hand, you have Novell arguing (rightly) in court that Microsoft unfairly bullies competitors. On the other hand, we see Novell supping at the feet of Microsoft to revive its Linux business.
Paul Murphy: "How is it possible for Linux ever to be substantially less expensive than Windows?” If you’re not dumb enough to pay someone like Red Hat to impose a license on you, Linux really is free - meaning that it’s always possible to get Linux for less than Windows.
jonreagan.wordpress: According to this blog post, Linux companies should do more to market their distribution. Here’s what is being done on the Ubuntu side, and some of the reasons why Linux companies do not run a full marketing campaign:
junauza.com: Pardus is a Turkish Linux distribution which can be installed and used more easily than the existing distros as well as other competitive operating systems. I've heard plenty of good things about Pardus that I gave it a try the other week. I tested Pardus 2007.3 in VMWare Server.
linux.com: The Gnome Desktop Environment comes with a set of default panel applets included. A little searching in your distribution´s repositories and on the Internet will uncover a few extra applets which are not included in the official Gnome offering, but which you may find very useful all the same. Let's take a brief look at some of them.
theunixgeek.blogspot: Ubuntu is sometimes thought of as the beginner's distro, something that more advanced users don't care about. Of all the distros I've tried, Ubuntu is the fastest, most reliable, and (most of the time) most compatible.
blog.davebsd: The Do team is proud to announce the release of GNOME Do 0.4, our shiniest, smartest, and friendliest version yet.
tuxtraining.com: Most people tend to think of the terminal as boring. But here I will list a number of choices you can pick to snaz it up a bit. The following applications can increase the usability and the speed in which you use a terminal, from drop down screens, syntax highlighting, or having multiple terminals in one window.
blog.diginux.net: It has been actually over a year since my “Goodbye Gentoo” post. I have been wanting to get away from Gentoo for a long time now because of how the Gentoo community has fallen apart. It was bad a year ago, and it has become only worse. The number of developers that left Gentoo is astounding.
theinquirer.net: YOU’VE HEARD OF UMPC, MID, OLPC, DTR, subnotebooks, slim line PCs, ITX, SFF and basically enough variants on the age-old beige box to drown a fish. Well, if you haven’t heard already, La Intella has come up with yet another name for another format (or package): a Nettop. Half desktop, half UMPC.

linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: When it comes to standardizations which is something the Linux development community is attempting to work on, how much of the standardization is really dependent on definition?
riplinton.blogspot: I am tired of hearing and reading that Gnu/Linux is not ready for the "regular" or "normal" user. Self proclaimed experts and pundits insist that these users can not, or will not, use Gnu/Linux. They give all kinds of reasons for this. I say that most of these reasons exist only in the minds of these experts and pundits.
