fengshaun.wordpress: after a while using Fedora, I thought I would give openSUSE a try. It is a popular distro! After using it for a week now, I’m satisfied with it. There are some features I like about it, and some that I don’t. First I will go for what I like about it.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: Ubuntu is one of the most popular desktop Linux distribution and a few days back Beta version of it's new upcoming Ubuntu 8.04 was released . Being such a huge Ubuntu fan i decided to give it a try.
insidebayarea.com: A DNA expert for the defense team in the Hans Reiser murder trial said it is difficult to say how and when a small sample of blood was left on a post in the living room of Reiser's home.
linux.com: Recently I looked in on the project Web site for a small application I use, only to find the wiki completely filled with spam. The project itself was clearly in disrepair, and the code abandoned for six months or more. I wondered: how many other apps that I use have halted development without my realizing it?
jonreagan.wordpress: Ubuntu seems to be becoming ever more mainstream, with new users coming to the system every day. There are signs that Ubuntu is becoming “Linux” in and of itself. Now, technically speaking, Ubuntu is not Linux, it’s just based on Linux, and Debian, although the popularity of Ubuntu makes it almost seem like it’s “Linux,” and Linux is referring to Ubuntu.

arstechnica.com: Following yesterday's announcement that Microsoft's Office Open XML format (OOXML) has been approved as an ISO standard, critics of OOXML are voicing support for the competing OpenDocument Format (ODF) and have expressed concerns about the future of document standards and of the ISO.
itwire.com: Max McLaren sounds very satisified these days. Not to say that the man who's been managing Red Hat's affairs in Australia and New Zealand for nearly two years has sounded disconsolate at any time when I've spoken to him.
linux.com: While desktop search engines like Beagle and Recoll can quickly find any file on your hard disk, they can't help you organize documents and files into neat and easy-to-manage collections. That's why we have tools like digiKam for managing your photos, BasKet Note Pads for keeping tabs on your notes, and Referencer for filing and tagging your documents.
Matt Asay: It's possible that the Linux desktop will never be anything more than a fad among geeky enthusiasts. If so, a growing swell of people appear to be much more faddish of late, as numbers from W3Counter.com appear to indicate.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: Linux is small enough. Let’s face it, most computer users don’t even know about Linux, let alone know what Ubuntu is. However, among new Linux users, Ubuntu is quickly becoming synonymous with Linux. And that is a shame.
techticker.net: Adrian Kingsley-Hughes over at ZDNet seems to have insighted a small firestorm of debate on a recent post “Is Ubuntu becoming the generic Linux distro?” What Ubuntu has done, both in its tagline “Linux for Human Beings”, and the solid user-friendly distro that accompanies it, is to enable free software and open source programs to spread more freely and easily outside the boundaries of the initiated.
seekingalpha.com: In recent weeks, Sun has quietly increased its bets on the fastest growing version of Linux in the market. And it isn't from Red Hat or Novell. Rather, Sun is preparing to certify more of its servers for Canonical's Ubuntu Linux.
Also: Red Hat, Novell get more competition on servers
my.opera.com: We released 9.27 today, which addresses a few security and stability issues, plus a print fix on Mac. This release is a recommended upgrade for all those running the latest stable releases.
forbes.com: For months, computer chip maker Intel and Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child program have fought bitterly over which could sell more cheap, rugged laptops to schools in Asia, Africa and South America. Now Intel is instead turning its focus onto a long neglected market for affordable PCs: American children.
slackware.com: Finally, Slackware 12.1 RC 1 has been officially announced by Patrick Volkerding. He noted that some minor works still to be done, but we are getting closer to final version that leads to Slackware 12.1. Here's the latest batch update that makes the 12.1 RC 1:
junauza.com: A computer application that replaced paper worksheets is called a spreadsheet. If you think that the proprietary and expensive Microsoft Excel is the only available and capable spreadsheet software, then think again because you are wrong. There are quite a number of free/open-source spreadsheet programs that are almost as good or even at par with Excel.
youssefsblog.blogspot: The Beta's still hot out of the oven, and a lot of reviews have appeared throughout the internet describing the numerous improvements, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time talking about them too. I will talk about what the Hardy Heron release can do for Ubuntu.
