polishlinux.org: Komparator is an application, that can compare and synchronize the content of two (local or remote) folders. Contrary to popular belief this activity is popular among users of all platforms, but in Linux you have to use unfriendly console apps (such as diff) to do the job.
blog.wired.com: Linux programmer Hans Reiser put the pedal to the metal on his geek defense at his murder trial here Monday, explaining to jurors that, as nonscientists, they may not understand his social ineptness.
Greg KH: This is a status report for the Linux Driver Project as of April 2008, describing what has happened in the past year of work. It was originally posted on the developer mailing list.
blog.funtoo.org: Many of you probably know that I am building up weekly Gentoo stages for x86, i686, athlon-xp, amd64, core64 and core32. Here's an update:
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: This is a hard question to answer for you in one post. To answer the question, perhaps it’s best to ask yourself this question, “Is it a good idea to switch to Linux?” or “Am I willing to take the time to explore new things and have fun?” If you’ve answered yes, read on…
informationweek.com/blog: Daring Fireball's John Gruber has a fling with Firefox, but comes home to Safari. My experience is the opposite of Gruber's: I've tried Safari several times, and keep coming back to Firefox.

nikopsk.wordpress: If you are very new to Ubuntu and have come from Windows where you got most updates by visiting the various vendors of each application and doing so separately; you are in for a shock! In this simple how-to you will learn how easy it is to install in various different ways and remove software as well.
linux.com: MegaLap, a notebook computer from ZaReason, a company that builds and sells computer systems that run Ubuntu, is bound to give its owner bragging rights at any LAN party, especially with how loud the system can get. It has the hallmarks of on-the-go computing, while performing comparably to a desktop gaming system.
raiden.net: In my regular search for Linux distributions that can be used easily by new users, I've found a number that stand up to the test, and a lot of others that don't. Well, shortly after hearing about Dream Linux, I was intrigued.
wingolog.org: In the last few months I have come into custody of a few new machines for work. I decided to install Fedora, first on my workstation (an 8-core monster) and then on the laptop (an all-Intel Thinkpad X61), for ideological and social reasons. It's like this: Fedora is the new Ubuntu.
Also: No, F9 won't be a great release
itwire.com: To some people, the increasing number of Linux distributions serves as a disadvante when it comes to attracting new users.

phorolinux.com: The first beta version of Gentoo Linux 2008.0 was released last week. The following are some screenshots of Gentoo Linux 2008.0 Beta 1.
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.
