itpro.co.uk: Documenting the development of open source software is key to keeping it easy to use, but some disagree on its necessity. More often than not, documentation is an afterthought, and is what happens when the interesting bits of a software project are over and done.
don-guitar.com: A couple of weeks ago I made a deal with Susan Linton of tuxmachines.org. Lisa and I will write a two part article on why we're using Linux and why we've chosen the distros we use in return for having Susan write the Linux section of our ezine for one (possibly two) issues.
junauza.com: After recommending those excellent real-time strategy (RTS) games for Linux, let's move on to this other type of strategic gaming referred to as turn-based.
insanelyabsurd.com/blog: We’re all pretty familiar with the how popular Ubuntu has become since it first started, but believe it or not there are actually still some people out there who choose to instead bash it because their distro flat out sucks. I’m not going to go into any of the names of the distro’s.
raiden.net: ELIVE is a live Linux CD showcasing the Enlightenment window manager/desktop shell. The Belgian project's slogan, "Where Debian Meets Enlightenment", provides us with an early hint that here is a Linux distribution built on very strong, very deep foundations.
gimp.org: The GIMP developers are proud to release GIMP 2.6.0 today. GIMP 2.6 is an important release from a development point of view. It features changes to the user interface addressing some often received complaints, and a tentative integration of GEGL, the graph based image processing library that will eventually bring high bit-depth and non-destructive editing to GIMP.

canllaith.org: I recently went looking for a good beginner’s resource for a budding Linux user, and came across Linux in Easy Steps by Mike McGrath. It’s an excellent primer for the new Linux user. Focused on the Ubuntu Linux distribution, Linux in Easy Steps covers installation, desktop configuration, and basic command line use in a slim volume with plenty of screenshots.
itworldcanada.com: The world's biggest software company is best known for its proprietary technologies, but a technology center opened this year may contribute to enterprise interoperability. And yet the skepticism remains
preacherpen.wordpress: Linux is what my computers run on, and Simply Mepis is the particular distribution. I have been using Simply Mepis for a number of years, and have been extremely pleased with it. I have version 7.9.8 beta installed on my laptop, and couldn’t be happier with what I see.
phoronix.com: Earlier this year Fedora 9 was the first distribution providing kernel-based mode-setting (or KMS for short). At the time there was only a kernel mode-setting driver for Intel hardware and it ended up being disabled. With months having passed since our first article and Red Hat engineers working aggressively on KMS improvements for Fedora 10, we are providing another look at this technology and some of the recent advancements.
redmonk.com: Count me among those less than intelligent by Stallman’s reckoning individuals that considers cloud computing inevitable. I’ll go further and argue that’s it’s not inevitable, it’s done. Already.
heise-online.co.uk: Linus Torvalds hinted that the eighth release candidate (RC) of Linux 2.6.27, would be the last RC prior to release of the next major kernel. Usually, once such a hint is dropped, it takes one to two weeks for the next version to be released.
headshotgamer.com: SimplyMEPIS was, believe it or not, my main distribution back in 2005 and used it with minimal complaints for a number of years. Then I moved away from Mepis and never returned - until now (/dramatic music).
olpcnews.com: There were 4 big questions when it was first revealed that Amazon would be running this year's edition of the Give 1 Get 1 program. 3 out of these 4 questions have been answered so what about the last one? Well, for the first time there are some indications that OLPC and Amazon are preparing to bring G1G1 v2 to Canada and Europe.
In the proprietary production world, what matters about a copyright is who owns it. In the free production world, however, who owns a copyright is relatively unimportant. What matters is what license it is offered under. There is a very simple rule of thumb about the best license to use: use a “free, copyleft license”.

- Open Source Census Tracks Enterprise Use of Open Source Globally
informationweek.com/blog: The Open Source Census, which I mentioned back in April, just dropped a press release this morning about the data it's been collecting. I chatted the day before with Kim Weins, senior VP of OpenLogic, a key co-sponsor of the census, and how they found a few ... surprises in the results.
blogs.computerworld: No matter what happens to the bailout, it's a safe bet that times are going to be hard. So what can you do? The choice is clear: switch to open-source software. Like what you ask?
googleblog.blogspot: Now that we're a decade old, we figured we're long overdue for some spring cleaning. We started digging around our basement and found all kinds of junk: old Swedish fish, pigeon poop, Klingon translation books. Amazingly enough, hidden in a corner beneath Larry's and Sergey's original lab coats, we found a vintage search index in mint condition. We dusted it off and took it for a spin, gobsmacked to see how different the web was in early 2001.
