workswithu.com: Previously, I introduced my theory of the Difficulty Divide. It’s a concept that I’ve used for several years when talking about why I use Linux, and why some people may give up on it. I also promised that I would present on how I’ve modified it in recent years to reflect the current state of things.
maketecheasier.com: There is currently this crazy challenge named: Move Your Tux. This challenge involves a small real, physical Tux (about 12 or 15cm in height) that will travel around the World from hand to hand and finally end on Linus Torvalds’ desk.
phoronix: The first alpha release for Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" was supposed to be out over two weeks ago, but now Ubuntu 8.10 Alpha 1 has finally made it out on this Friday night.

As a single admin you may have to do lots of work because other people in accouting, sales, or programmers may not have all the skills required to run servers.
ceki.blogspot: When I mention to colleagues in the IT industry that compiling packages before installing them on a computer is a good thing, they either give me a blank look or an ever slight smirk. What is the point wasting many hours waiting for some package to compile instead of fetching the binaries from a repository and have it installed in seconds?
linuxjournal.com: The depth of Microsoft loathing among our clan is perhaps only second to our penguin loving. This loathing makes sense, given that Linux and open-source people are so fiercely merit driven, and great products have failed to end Microsoft's hegemony. But times they are a changin', for a post-Gates, post-Microsoft age has already begun.
linux.com: With Ubuntu, Canonical has had notable success in convincing people to switch from other platforms, but potential Ubuntu users are still running into trouble in several areas. Having spent some time on Canonical's forums, I've identified 10 points that seem to be common sticking points for new users.
wolf911.us: As predicted, rc-2 came out for core-beta team and I have assembled the iso files. If there is no problems, the final will finally be released.

linux.com: Figures on adoption of the GPL family vary somewhat, depending on whom you talk to. According to Doug Levin, president and CEO of Black Duck Software, a company that tracks open source code, 2,476 projects are now using the third version of the GPL, 358 are using the LGPL, and 72 the AGPL.
