news.zdnet.co.uk: In a speech to the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts on 3 April, the leader of the Conservative Party called for more open source and a less centralised approach to IT projects in government.
kimchikid.com/blog: A clean install of Ubuntu the desktop looks not very cool at all. But relax, if you follow this guide you will be able to get a ultra cool desktop like this one.
jaysonrowe.wordpress: Foresight is my first venture outside of the traditional “Major” distros - but I’m impressed. I’ve never done a “review” before but I’m so impressed, I’m gonna give it a shot - here goes!
engadget.com: Everex is popping off a new gOS powered box tonight, given the unfortunate monicker of MyMiniPC. MyMiniPC comes equipped with a 1.86GHz Pentium T2130 and 512MB RAM running gOS "Space", a 120GB drive, DVD±RW, firewire, four USB 2.0 ports, DVI and S-Video out gigabit Ethernet, media reader, and standard audio ins/outs.
ecmarchitect.com: I’ve been running Ubuntu for two years, and the gPC’s gOS is based on Ubuntu so I figured it ought to be easy enough for me to support. But I had to do a bit more work than I thought I should based on that fact that this was aimed at the masses.
osnews.com: The first obvious difference between Mint and Ubuntu is of course Mint's artwork, which , I must say, is a lot more appealing than Ubuntu's brown and orange. They also applied some other cool tricks like diagonal striping on menu bars, menu item highlights, and the GNOME panel, which looks pretty slick.
arstechnica.com: One of the most significant moments in the history of the modern software industry took place in 1998 when Netscape announced plans to release the source code of its browser under a license that would freely permit modification and redistribution. Ten years after the vision of software freedom gave birth to the broader open-source software movement, the software industry is a radically different place.

ben.liveforge.org: Recently Distrowatch editor Ladislav Bodnar complained, "I keep saying the same thing every time people come here to defend Gentoo: please write an article explaining why Gentoo is the greatest thing since sliced pickles and I’ll publish it." Do we Gentoo users write so little about why we love this distro?
itwire.com: Micro Linux laptop maker, ASUS, have released an open source software developer’s kit – or SDK – for their popular ultraportable, the Eee. Now the Eee is yours to command. Heck, you don’t even need an Eee; the SDK includes a VMWare image dump letting Windows users see just what all the fuss is about. Here’s how to do it.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Let’s face it: GNU/Linux software is not always easy to use. Especially command line software (at least the GUI programs have buttons and tooltips). Sometimes, the program will have a manual or some documentation at its homepage, but that is not always the case. The solution? The magical man.
earthweb.com: Can you give Linux away? By that, I mean will we see a point where a significant number of PCs are sold not with a costly version of Windows or Mac OS installed on them, but with Linux instead?
commandline.org.uk: So ISO rubberstamped Microsoft's OOXML, a lame excuse for an 'open' format. The promise of ODF was that we could free the information inside office documents, making it available to new innovative programs and web services. Sadly, the real aim of OOXML was to maintain Microsoft's Office Monopoly.
marcelgagne.com: Tomorrow morning, I'm giving a talk/tutorial at the IT360 Conference in Toronto. The subject is getting a Linux notebook (or laptop, if you prefer) to do it all. Here's a very short list of vendors who sell Linux notebooks.
sudharsh.wordpress: I was planning to install Gentoo in my Vaio CR 36 but couldnt, as it had problems with the ethernet card ( not to mention the wireless). My option was to install Ubuntu Gutsy as it has very good support for laptops out of the box. But
fsckin.com: I picked up a new Pharos iGPS-500 GPS Receiver from Newegg.com earlier this week for under 60 bones. Pretty rad, if I do say so myself. Getting it working in Ubuntu Hardy required a bit of research.
Dana Blankenhorn: A great mobile Linux device starts with a set of requirements. It’s not enough to say, oh we’ll use Prizm or we’ll build it with Qtopia, the LiMo stack, OpenMoko or Android. Those are how questions. They’re about the developer. Let’s look at it instead from the user’s point of view.
blogs.techrepublic.com: So today I read that Gartner has finally jumped on the Open Source bandwagon. I honestly thought this was a hold over April Fools joke. Seriously. I distinctly remember Gartners’ take on open source being a slight guffaw at best.
I am often dismayed by the misappropriation of the term open source. Companies apply the term to products that are free though not open source. It’s a classic marketing maneuver to leverage that already has broad recognition.
linux-watch.com: Some days, like it or not, you need a lawyer. For most business purposes, picking the right law firm isn't usually that big of a deal.
