mssaleh.wordpress: I’ve been using Linux on and off for about 7 years. I am not a programmer or a hacking enthusiast. I’ve never seen a product that can convert every user into an advocate except Linux, and I kept telling myself that it must be so good to deserve such a treatment.
linux.com: Jeremiah Gray wants to provide an interesting way to learn about Linux, so he's created a new comic strip, called Hackett and Bankwell, about the open source operating system. The strip will be published as a series of comic books that Gray hopes will appeal to new Linux users, but he says it is "more than just a comic book version of a Linux training guide."
sizlopedia.com: The countdown for Ubuntu 8.04 finally begins today as now there are only 9 days to go for the official launch of Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. But before Ubuntu lovers get their hands on Hardy, their biggest anticipation is about the new features and applications coming in Ubuntu 8.04.
computerworld.com: As Dell Inc. approaches its one-year anniversary of selling laptop and desktop computers preloaded with Ubuntu Linux, the company is continuing to expand the fledgling program to new computer models and markets. Dell representatives said sales of the Linux-loaded machines are encouraging.
blog.wired.com: A computer forensic specialist testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial here Monday that the defendant's two hard drives he hid from the authorities did not contain evidence linking the Linux programmer to the 2006 disappearance of his estranged wife, Nina Reiser.

reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: UNLIKE the Scottish weather, I’ve warmed a lot toward Mandriva in recent months. The thaw in relations began when I reviewed Mandriva’s excellent 2008 Flash distribution (read it here) and has continued with their just-released desktop offering, Mandriva 2008 Spring.
look2linux.com: Why do people convert to Linux and why do people contradict their choice, I will investigate this in this post and bring to your attention 15 points. 10 for and 5 against converting to Linux.
fosswire.com: KDE-Look.org is the premier site for styles, themes and other goodies for your KDE desktop. One of the goodies offered there is wallpapers. You can download them from the website, but for KDE users there is a better way…
linuxplanet.com: Xfce isn't for everyone, but for servers or minimal desktop systems, it's just what the doctor ordered. Rather lightweight in Window Manager terms, -Xfce arrives with a full complement of applications from Abiword, gnumeric, and pidgin to CD/DVD burning software (Brasero), Thunar File Manager, and a host of administrative applications. For this article, I am reviewing the Xfce Fedora Spin based on Fedora 8 and Xfce4.
Matt Asay: Argentina's congress is actively considering a bill that would require all government offices to use open-source software. It's partly a cost-saving move, and partly a way to bring the Argentine government into compliance with its software licensing:
blogs.techrepublic.com: Yesterday I downloaded and fired up the Flock 1.1 release. What is Flock? Flock is a Firefox-based browser aimed toward the social-networking butterfly in all of us. But it’s much more than that. How much more? Let’s find out.
informationweek.com: Mandriva last week released the latest version of its distribution of the open source Linux operating system -- and it's hoping some new features will catch the eye of mainstream computer users weaned on Microsoft Windows. The 2008 Spring distribution includes Elisa multimedia center with drag-and-drop tools for storing and managing digital content such as photos, music, and videos.
raiden.net: Alien Arena is an open source First Person Shooter (FPS) that takes the fun extraterrestrial theme of games like Area 51 and combines it with the hard hitting deathmatch action of great shooters such as Quake and Unreal Tournament. Let's have a look.
techiemoe.com: Linux XP is a strange beast. From what I gather it tries very hard to emulate the look and feel of Microsoft Windows in order to make the transition to Linux easier to the Microsoft-familiar. If someone wants to learn Linux, great, but they should learn proper Linux, not this bastardized Frankenstein monster.
earthweb.com: After three weeks of using KDE 4 on my laptop, I continue to find new features and changes. Increasingly, I'm looking at KDE 4 as a statement about what a desktop should be, and contrasting it with my own ideas on the subject.
ostatic.com: Jack Wallen wrote a great article over at Tech Republic outlining 10 things you need to consider when choosing a Linux distribution. He makes some great points, and there's a couple more I'd throw in as well.

theregister.co.uk: It is time to wake up and smell the elephant in the room. Vista is struggling. Of course there is an alternative, but the Wii does not yet quite hack it. So, for the time being, I'm afraid we are all back on re-evaluation-of-Linux duty. Never mind. I've already done the spadework. Let me lead you through a few simple steps to a full-on Open Source experience.
