Bruce Byfield: The average user probably hasn't even heard of Open Document Format (ODF) or Microsoft Office Open XML (OOXML). With both formats candidates for being the ISO standard that becomes the norm for interoperability between office suites, emotions were already running high. However, this issue has been sidetracked by a debate about whether the GNOME Foundation has betrayed or assisted the community by being involved with the development of OOXML at all.

The services that use networking have gotten ever more powerful and more complicated. That's why a book like Carla Schroder's Linux Networking Cookbook is so valuable.
laptopmag.com: If you’ve been curious about Linux but fearful of installing the open-source OS on a laptop, then Ubuntu 7.10 will eliminate all excuses. This graphical and very friendly version of the OS is free, looks and plays very much like Mac/Windows, and runs a surprisingly vast array of programs from the open-source community.
