thetimes.co.za: MARK Shuttleworth isn’t just a space tourist. To geeks the world over, he’s the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator for Life or SABDFL for short. It’s a nickname he’s earned as the driving force behind Ubuntu — an open-source operating system based on the Linux platform that is rated one of the best.
linuxloop.com: Back in March, I tried to find as many Linux-based UMPCs as I could. At the time, I found 18, which was expanded to 20 with the help of commenters. After many more Linux-based UMPC releases, I decided to see how many more I could find.

In The Beginning There was a Desktop ...
KDE wasn't always the shiniest tool in the shed. While KDE 1 certainly looked more coherent and generally nicer than most things on UNIX or Linux at the time, it wasn't .. you know .. gorgeous.
phoronix.com: It's six months late and X.Org 7.4 still hasn't shipped as its being held up on the release of Mesa 7.1.

bluelinux.blogspot: I recently decided to give OpenSuse 11.0 a spin on some of the computer terminals at work, replacing PCLinuxOS. It is not that I have any hard feelings towards PCLinuxOS, it is just that I prefer to stay up on the different distros available to make sure I'm not missing out on something. And, honestly, PCLinuxOS has been dragging behind the 'latest/greatest' software curve for a while now.
linux.com: Last month at O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON), it seemed like Microsoft was everywhere you looked, avouching its interest in open source.

Surely Microsoft must want something, so what is it?

raiden.net: Desktop Linux Distribution is getting fame in every day use among home users and even office users. Given the choice to select from a huge list of Desktop Linux Distributions home users are ought to get confused and it's not unusual that they do distro-hopping in the quest of what is so called "the best" for them.
