blogs.zdnet.com: There is an assumption throughout the financial press that since we’re down, cash is king. The extent to which this applies to open source, however, is something which deserves to be questioned.
sutor.com: It occurred to be this morning when I was stuck in traffic that although a lot has been written about open source development for communities, much less is out there for the lone developer. This is the person who labors along by him- or herself, writing code and letting the world use it. Why might they do this?

royal.pingdom.com: Sometimes you just need to take a short break, relax and have fun. A great way to do so is to check out some funny web comics, and we here at Pingdom are big fans of comics that dive into the slightly more geeky aspects of life.
the-gay-bar.com: In Linux circles RPM has a really bad reputation, the whole idea of "RPM-hell" (like Windows' DLL-hell) has spread through the years. It's a reputation that was really deserved in the past when getting exactly the right RPM for your distro was a huge pain.
ajc.com: Many PC buyers assume there is one way to get onto the Internet — Internet Explorer. It’s already on the desktop, it seems to work, so why mess with a good thing? But these days there are many choices when it comes to browsers.
blog.eracc.com: Have you ever called or e-mailed Microsoft or some other software manufacturer’s technical support about a problem as a user? What was your result? Did the technical support personnel begin with the assumption that you were the problem, not their software?
linuxjournal.com: It’s no secret that I’m a Linux fan. I love it. I use it. I tell of its goodness far and wide. It’s also true, however, that I administer and use a variety of operating systems throughout any given day. This week, I tried out Windows 7 Beta.
raiden.net: One of the things that's been coming up over the past couple years is how CD's have effectively died as a music medium. Well, others, despite the rise of Blueray, have begun calling the death knell on the DVD and all disk media for movies.
news.zdnet.com: The original Doom didn't have much in the way of story. The bulk of the game consisted of running around shooting all the demons that came through that portal.
news.cnet.com: It used to be that choosing Windows or Linux to host your Web site made a big difference in the kind of functionality or services offered. On Friday, as this informative article on KnockOutHost.com suggests, the choice between Linux and Windows has become somewhat less stark.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: There are a number of different small/mini/tiny/whatever distributions available, and each has its own special strengths. I have been looking at three of them.
linuxinsider.com: Newcomers to open source software might be intimidated by the insider nature of the communities, but they shouldn't mistake that for elitism, writes LinuxInsider columnist Jeremiah T. Gray. Stick with it, and the benefits will become clear, he advises.
links.org: I started looking at the LLVM project today, which is a replacement for the widely used gcc compiler for C and C++. I thought perhaps the interest in LLVM and clang (the C/C++ front end) were prompted by a sudden surge of interest in open source static analysis, but asking around, it seems it is not so.
dedoimedo.com: I have already reviewed Linux Mint about a year ago - and already loved it back then. With version 6 out for grabs, I decided to see what new changes the latest version of Linux Mint brings.
opendotdotdot.blogspot: Here's an interesting idea: for Russia to fund the creation of a "national operating system" to replace Windows, based on GNU/Linux:
news.cnet.com: A panel discussion among browser executives shed a little light on the philosophical differences between four major browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera), but more than anything showed how these products are moving in the same direction.
phoronix.com: Today we are looking at two new products. There is the ATP 8GB EarthDrive, which is advertised as the world's first recyclable USB drive, and secondly there is the ATP 8GB ToughDrive. The EarthDrive is made of a biodegradable material that is derived from corn.
