computerworld.com: To see what all the excitement is about, I got my hands on four of the latest minis available: the Sylvania G Netbook, the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC, the Acer Aspire and the Asus Eee PC 1000. These four mini-notebooks offer portability, low prices and a Linux operating system. How do they compare?
stuff.co.nz: Open source software may sound like just another passing buzzphrase, but it is no fly-by-nighter. It has been around for decades and we have all relied on it for some time. As more and more people are coming into direct contact with open source, it's a good time to ask what makes it so special.
linuxdevices.com: Nuvation is shipping a "video front end" reference design that digitizes multiple analog video streams, tiling them for display on a 1080i monitor. The Multichannel Video Front-End (McVFE) uses Texas Instruments (TI) video decoders and a Xilinx Spartan 3A FPGA, and ships with Linux drivers.
linux.com: One brake on the GIMP's popularity is that, while it boasts dozens of filters, a rival like Photoshop boasts thousands. You may only occasionally need a special effect that imitates a pencil sketch or a famous style of painting such as Impressionism or Cubism, but, when you do, having a filter to create the effect instantly saves serious amount of time. To help bridge this divide, the GIMP is reviving the User Filter.

mercurynews.com: Cafiero is leading a revolution in the redwood-ringed town of Felton. He's been inspired by others around the country and with them he's dubbed the effort "Lindependence 2008,'' a scheme hatched to turn Felton into an all-Linux enclave.
iarematt.com: I have recently switched from Vista to Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 1525. I started off doing a dual boot with Vista but after playing around with Ubuntu for the past few days and customizing it to my liking, I am confident that I can format my Vista partition and switch to Ubuntu completely.
linux.com: Phoronix.com is the definitive Linux hardware review site, featuring articles on motherboards, processors, memory, power supplies, cases, and other components. While other sites throw a hardware review into the mix occasionally, hardware reviews are the primary focus of Phoronix.com. Phoronix founder and executive editor Michael Larabel has it down to a science -- so much so that he was able to package and released his primary tools as an open source hardware testing suite.
opensuse.org: In the “old days” SuSE had a closed list of beta testers that would help with SuSE Linux testing and try to help SuSE ensure the best possible Linux distribution. Many beta testers expressed an interest in joining the SUSE Linux Enterprise beta program as well. We’re happy to announce that we have found a way to make this possible.

Aaron Aseigo: Andreas Pakulat recently blogged about performance issues with KDE 4.1 on his new desktop system. While I agree with some of the comments on that blog entry that his blog would've been better off on the kde-devel or even the kde-core-devel mailing list, since he's uncorked the genie I figured I may as well offer some commentary.
Mitchell Baker: Ubuntu recently included a patch that causes an End User License Agreement for Firefox to appear. This has caused great concern on several topics. One is the content of the agreement. Another is the presentation. A third is whether there’s any reason for a license at all.
blog.canonical.com: For the first time we are making codecs for media playback and a DVD player, from our partners at Fluendo and Cyberlink, available through the Ubuntu store.
Here's a paper originally presented at the SELinux Symposium that explores the evolution, rationale, and development of features to meet the Labeled Security Protection Profile.
linuxhaxor.net: A few weeks ago I became the proud owner of an Acer Aspire One Linux edition (reviewed here). Out of the box, this little wonder comes with the relatively unknown Linux distribution Linpus Linux Lite, which has been customized somewhat by Acer to make the most of the hardware in the Aspire One.
