phoronix.com: The final alpha release for Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron is now available. Among the features that are available to Ubuntu 8.04 users are Firefox 3 Beta 3, the Vinagre VNC client, PolicyKit, PulseAudio, improved Virtualization capabilities, and even improved memory protection.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: On 28 February 2008, Elonex launched the Elonex ONE—the first sub-£100 laptop in the UK. Clearly competing against the much in-demand Asus EeePC , Elonex say they are aiming at the school-student market. The thing is, I just can’t stop asking: isn’t £99 too cheap for a laptop?
junauza.blogspot: Yesterday, the Beta 1 version of Internet Explorer 8 was released for download. Meanwhile, Mozilla Firefox Beta 3 was released last February with great new features of its own. And the browser wars continue...
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: Imagine, I’m starting my day and reviewing messages and posts over a cup of tea, when I read this rather desperate plea for help because “… apparently Ubuntu, and all of Linux is worthless, there is no hardware support for these crappy #$@*!+? OS’s!
guardian.co.uk: It seems that the £200 ultraportable Asus Eee PC can do no wrong. Until now, there has been no obvious advantage for the average user in choosing GNU/Linux over Windows. The Asus Eee PC changes all that.

linux.com: Venture capitalists (VC) first discovered open source during the dot-com bubble at the turn of the millennium. When the bubble burst, open source was connected closely enough with its general failure that all but a handful of VCs lost interest. In the last few years, however, investor interest has started to return.
tmcnet.com: The Linux Foundation has elected new members to its board—including Linux and open-source expert Larry Augustin, Advanced Micro Device’s Chris Schlaeger and Texas Instrument’s Eric Thomas.
informationweek.com: Novell vice president Miguel de Icaza, one of the more public faces of a growing relationship between Microsoft and Novell, Thursday slammed the patent licensing agreement between the two companies during a wide-ranging panel discussion of Microsoft's commitment to openness.
linux.com: San Jose-based startup DeviceVM made waves last year when it unveiled Splashtop, a nearly instant-on Linux environment stored in the flash memory usually reserved for motherboard BIOS. The company previewed an upcoming revision to Splashtop at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in January, then gave us the chance to take a hands-on look at this intriguing system software.

The battle for the inexpensive UMPC (Ultra-Mobile PC) market has begun. ECS will be introducing its version of a UMPC and it looks like the smaller brother to the MacBook.
desktoplinux.wordpress: I may have found myself a new favorite distro. PCLinuxOS found all my hardware and booted up just fine. Aside from simply working, there’s other things I’m discovering that I like.
Matthew Aslett: I just noticed an article from last month’s Red Hat Magazine that states: “It is never correct to abbreviate ‘Red Hat Enterprise Linux’ as ‘RHEL’.” Red Hat’s branding police will have their work cut out editing the 47,400 uses of the term RHEL on Red Hat’s own web site.
kmandla.wordpress: Newcomers to Ubuntu have any number of problems, but some of them are fairly common. Here are three I see a lot, and easy ways to avoid them.
iTWire: April 24 will be a red letter day for the Ubuntu project. It will be three-and-a-half years since the experiment began and the release that day of Hardy Heron, as version 8.04 is known, will be a defining moment. This could well be the release that either makes or breaks the project.
flock.com: We’re very excited to tell you about our latest release, so let’s cut to the chase: Flock 1.1 is here. Flock 1.1 includes some very exciting improvements. Flock’s integration of Gmail and Yahoo! Mail lets you know when you have new messages waiting.
Aaron J. Seigo: A few days back Marco Martin committed a change to the trash plasmoid he's written so that you can drag drives and discs from the Places view in Dolphin, the file open/save dialog, the Computer tab in kickoff, etc to the trash/recyle bin. Once dropped, the volume will be unmounted and, if applicable, the media is ejected.
