commandline.org.uk: In the last post I went through the most popular Firefox extensions and talked about whether they were good ideas or not. However, it seems that not a lot of people think about another side to this, i.e. what are your Firefox extensions licenced under?
Also: Firefox 3 RC1 forces you agree to EULA before usage
And: Welcome humans - We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill!
vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: Following audio players reviews like this or this, today I decided to review Rhythmbox 0.11.5, the GNOME audio player. At first glance, Rhythmbox made me a good impression: the layout is simple and clean, similar in many ways to many other players for GNOME, like Banshee, Listen or Exaile.
phoronix.com: Adobe has been using the GPU to accelerate the Flash Player when displaying full-screen content since their December '07 Flash Player update, but with the Flash Player 10 Beta, new GPU acceleration modes are supported -- even on Linux.
archisgore.blogspot: I've been using Ubuntu for the last couple of months, it still doesn't match the speed-of-use I get from my XP. Speed-of-use isn't always about raw speed of the software. Many times, there are simple UX pieces missing in the media players or GUI config tools which make you go to the command-line occasionally.
blogs.zdnet.com: It’s late, and in terms of the process it’s hopeless, but the appeals of the ISO vote making Office Open XML (OOXML) an official standard could still have an impact
itwire.com: Whether it was to your taste or not, there’s no denying the ASUS Eee Linux subnotebook was a massive sales success. Demand far exceeded initial production so it’s not surprising competitor models are on their way. And here’s why the hardware manufacturers are going to bring Linux to the masses far in advance of any amount of Ubuntu fanboyism.

linuxca.wordpres: It seems that PClinuxOS is getting slammed for the moderation by one or more mods. I feel that I need to put forth a view on this topic.
eweek.com: Look around your organization. What does your end-user desktop environment look like? Windows-based PCs? Docked laptops? Some combination thereof? Look around your organization five years from now, and the desktop landscape will appear very different.
commandline.org.uk: I recently looked at the forthcoming Epiphany browser based-on-Webkit. However, some people told me that Firefox has so many extensions that it would not be possible for a new browser to compete, even among the target audience of GNOME users. Is this true?
icculus.org: To celebrate the release of the Postal movie, Running With Scissors has released a free download version of Postal 2: Share the Pain. This is the complete multiplayer portion of the game, with the single player campaign removed.
wamukota.blogspot: Being involved in the PCLinuxOS.NL team, I was constantly focusing on KDE. I thought it was about time to get to know a distro running GNOME, so last month I tried HH. The number one distro of the planet simply couldn't get my Wifi (Broadcom 4312) up and running out of the box. Next I tried Fedora 9 and once again it was no-joy with the Wifi.
mindrobber.blogspot: A couple of weeks ago I decided that the release of Ubuntu 8.04 was as good a reason as any to finally take the plunge into the world of open source software properly.
groklaw: ComputerWorld Denmark is reporting that a strong letter of protest has been sent to ISO from Open Source Leverandørforeningen in Denmark (OSL).
polishlinux.org: Lately I have described ok_defrag — a simple tool for defragmenting Linux file systems. Today, I want to describe a specialized program designed to defrag the new Ext4 file system.

3. Releases are Rock stable
matt asay: Perhaps the biggest news in Gartner's latest "Top 10 Technologies" report is the absence of open source. Or perhaps its omnipresence. The report offers essentially the same technologies as last year's list, with some curious additions:
blogs.zdnet.com: The struggle to build open source communities is, I’m convinced, one of the biggest stories of 2008. The trend began two years ago when major projects broke away from Sourceforge and began launching their own forge sites. This began an arms race.
ec.europa.eu: The department at the French Ministry of Education that is handling purchasing of software and software licenses is increasing its Open Source offerings to some 1.5 million teachers and education workers in 250 institutes France.
junauza.com: If you ask me who's the proudest hacker in the world, I would say that it's Eric S. Raymond. ESR, as he is often called, is a computer programmer and open source software evangelist. He is also a well-known author and has been very influential in giving the term 'hacker' a positive image.
