news.com: Linux is not just for computer whizzes. In fact, buying Linux and learning how to use it are easier than ever, thanks to the open-source operating system's expanding presence in affordable computers and mainstream retail outlets.
downloadsquad.com: There are a lot of funny, preconceived notions about Linux (and Linux users). Some ideas fall in to the realm of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt). Some ideas have an inkling of truth to them, and have grown and mutated into full fledged myths. Sort of like how Vlad the Impaler became Dracula, but with a lot less violence and a lot more compiling.
rabble.ca: The Fedex guy handed me a small squarish cardboard box. Inside I found an uber-designed, light, little laptop. No, it was not the Air. It was an XO. This is a story about how alike, and how very different, the two laptops are.
junauza.blogspot: While looking for some Python codes using Google Code Search (beta), I got bored and remembered an article entitled “F*cking programming”. So, I began to wonder and think of the opposite side or character of programmers. I searched for “God”.
LinuxWorld: Putting off that New Year's resolution to get started on Linux? Here's a combination of book and distribution that will lay a strong foundation for Linux projects.
itwire.com: Over the past few years, as the opportunities to make money from FOSS have grown, as viable business models have been developed for FOSS and the value of being known as "someone" in the FOSS sphere has increased, there has been a proliferation of the Stowell type, all of them geared towards self-aggrandisement even if it be at the expense of the project or company to which they are attached.
linux.com: Litrix Linux is a distribution developed in Brazil and based on Gentoo Linux. As with Gentoo, users are left to do some of their own configuration, but with good hardware detection and the Litrix Central configuration tool, building your own personalized Linux system is a little easier than you might expect.
computerworld.co.nz: The little Asus EEE 701 PC has attracted quite a lot of attention from my colleagues here at the Toybox testing lab, smack in the middle of Fairfax Business Media HQ.
LinuxElectrons: The openSUSE Build Service has extended its support to now build packages for CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The openSUSE Build Service already supports several Linux distributions including openSUSE, Ubuntu, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Debian and others.
daveshuck.instantspot: Seeing as it has been a few months since I tried out a new distro, I got a wild hair today and decided to give PCLinuxOS (Gnome version) a shot.
Paula Rooney: In a speech before the World Economic Forum in Switzerland this week, mega-billionaire Bill Gates is calling for a “creative capitalism” in which businesses build and target products for poorer nations.
vnunet.com: Linux is available in many versions (known as distributions) and this computer is supplied with the Opensuse edition. This is just as capable as the better known Ubuntu distribution with some differences. The most visible change is that it looks more like Windows.
gentoo.org: A comprehensive testing checklist will be developed on the gentoo-releng mailing list, as will a list of which details of testers' machines and environments they should turn in to developers.

phoronix: For those not satisfied by RandR 1.2 or just wish to live on the cutting-edge of X.Org developments (like us), this week on the X.Org mailing list has been a discussion among driver developers surrounding RandR 1.3. RandR 1.3 is the next update to the Resize and Rotate (RandR) extension.
Charles Babcock: Oracle strips out Red Hat logos and offer its own Linux? Red Hat refused to be provoked. Novell wants to cozy up to Microsoft? That's a fellow Linux distributor's affair. Microsoft has patents that govern parts of Linux? No tough rejoinder from Red Hat. Now Jim Whitehurst has arrived on the scene as the new CEO. He's an engaging and experienced manager. And he's going to need all his skills to find an antidote to Red Hat's anti-leadership vaccine.

Tip o’ the Day: Windows users can use RDP or VNC for tech support, troubleshooting, or presentations. Linux folk have X11 or VNC. But what about command line screen sharing on a machine with no X server installed? What if the only immediate access you and your partner share is ssh?
kmandla.wordpress: Yes, invention is the mother of necessity, and my little XO is proof. Since I got it a week ago I’ve added all manner of doo-dads and thingamajigs, usually keeping to the green motif, and sinking at least another 7500 yen into it.
