liquidat.wordpress: With Ktorrent one of the largest external KDE projects now released a first stable KDE 4 version of their product. This also shows that KDE 4 is also accepted by external developers.
theubuntuexperiment.wordpress: While it was great fun trying to convert my mother to Ubuntu, this experiment ended up in a complete failure. Linux is not ready for the desktop, and never will be, too.
felipec.wordpress: For quite some people it seems if you use Fedora you are committing an open source sin; at best it seems as if there is no good reason to use it, or so has been my experience.
open-zone.com: I'm Ubuntu user for years now. I have gained a lot of knowledge on how to customize my Ubuntu box and how to make it better. This guide targets any Ubuntu user or any one is thinking about trying Ubuntu but it will be very useful for newbies.
techthrob.com: While it may not let you go where no man has gone before, Celestia is an amazing desktop application that lets you travel anywhere in the known Universe.
blogs.the451group: Open source fans are buzzing about Microsoft’s latest move to open its APIs, which follows along the path it has been on recently. Another announcement they may have been somewhat overshadowed is chipmaker AMD’s new open source application library project, Framewave. I would say this is just another case of companies coming around to market realities.
direct2dell.com: Several new developments on the Linux front today. We're introducing Ubuntu 7.1-based Dell systems in Canada and Latin America. Beyond that, we're introducing the Inspiron 1525n to customers in the United States.
blog.wired.com: A day after the Hans Reiser murder trial drifted into the netherworld, the murder case against the Linux programmer careened Thursday into the world of psychiatry. Beverly Parr testified that those who use a computer regularly "possibly" might have Asperger's Disorder, impaired social skills.

downloadsquad: Theming one's OS to look like a Mac is all the rage these days, but for the most part such modifications are superficial. However, Global Menu actually changes the user experience quite a bit.

Ross Turk, Community Manager at http://SourceForge.net/, today announced the guidelines for the 2008 Community Choice Awards. Starting this year, the awards are open to any open source project, even those hosted outside of SourceForge.
Carla Schroder: Webcams are everywhere these days: they're standard on a lot of laptops, LCD monitors are starting to incorporate them, and decent standalone USB webcams can be had for less than $40. In this two-part series we'll set up a Webcam on Linux, and then use it to perform a number of amazing and fun tasks.
fanaticattack.com: You’ve been thinking about it for a while. You’ve seen the PDF converter and sighed longingly; you’ve blushed before the skeptical glances of your open-source and anti-Microsoft friends who say “You’re still using Microsoft Office?” I’m here to help.
jeremy.linuxquestions.org: The polls are closed and the results are in. This was the seventh annual LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards and we’ve set a record for participation each and every year. We had some extremely close races this year.

mozillalinks.org: Most likely you have your own definition: a software company, an open source project, the maker of Firefox, a cool thing made by lots of volunteers, a non-profit, etc. For Mitchell Baker explaining what Mozilla is and what’s not to lots of influential people around the world is an important part of her job.
weblog.infoworld: If you're active in the open source world, Ohloh probably knows you. The Bellevue, Wash., software company has a database of some 70,000 developers working on nearly 11,000 of the world's major open source projects.
beranger.org: You may never know with Mandriva, but I feel there is a good chance to have a Mandriva 2008.1 "One" XFCE flavor. There is a Beta that doesn't look that bad!
the451group.com: Here’s an interesting bit of news from the blurred line between open and closed source software. Ubuntu sponsor Canonical has announced that it is reselling IBM’s DB2 Express-C database as both a standalone software package and as a software appliance with VMware.
phoronix: This morning NVIDIA has introduced their first GeForce 9 graphics card, with the introduction of the GeForce 9600GT. While the embargo covering the NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT was just lifted at the top of the hour, no Linux driver supporting this first GeForce 9 part is yet available.
