junauza.com: Recently, I have tried a few free and open-source RTS games and was really impressed with some of them. The best thing is that I can play them instantly on my Linux box without the need for Wine and without having to spend a single dime.
itwire.com: Imagine a world without Linux. There'd be no cute Tux penguin or any notion of software freedom day. Netbooks would not have come about. But more strikingly, there wouldn't be the modern powerful tools that Windows systems administrators have come to love. That's right; Linux is keeping Microsoft honest.
redhat.com: In a few hours, updates for Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 will start hitting mirrors. These updates are designed to transition users from our old repo locations to new locations that have all our updates re-signed with a new set of keys.

electronicsweekly.com: It is almost a year since the Free Software Foundation (FSF) released the third version of its General Public License (GPL). Prior to the release there was a great deal of public consultation where several contentious issues were hammered out. The greatest of those was the Tivoisation clause.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Richard Stallman wants to popularise the term GNU/Linux instead of using the currently popular term Linux.

informationweek.com: Lumeta's arresting visual images represent the explosive growth of the online world. Between 1998 and 2003, the number of nodes on the Internet doubled. By 2008 nodes had increased five times.

phoronix.com: It has been one year and four days since X.Org 7.3 was released and a number of months since X.Org 7.4 was supposed to be released, but today X.Org 7.4 is scheduled to finally make it out the door!
earthweb.com: A few weeks ago, when I wrote that, "forced to choose, the average FOSS-based business is going to choose business interests over FOSS [free and open source software] every time," many people, including Mathew Aslett and Matt Assay, politely accused me of being too cynical. Unhappily, you only have to look at the relations between Red Hat and Fedora, the distribution Red Hat sponsors, during the recent security crisis for evidence that I might be all too accurate.
