downloadsquad.com: All right, let's quit the touchy-feely psycho-babble talk. There is a lot written about choosing distributions, desktops, and other fun stuff that comes with Linux. But how do you really know if it's something you want to invest time in trying at all?
blogs.zdnet.com: ReactOS is an implementation of Windows Server 2003, still in alpha stage, and very interesting. But it is no threat to Windows. None at all. Especially compared with Linux. Here's why.
oooninja.com: Let's compare these laws against OpenOffice.org to see which law wins. We'll measure the installed disk usage of OpenOffice.org for Linux in English as built by Sun Microsystems. The size of OpenOffice.org installation over time fits a linear equation with R2 = 0.858 and an expoential curve with R2 = 0.876: that means it is predictable like Kryder's Law.
penguinpetes.com: Have you noticed that the differences in major computer platforms really do seem to make them like different countries? The different ways we do things like run system tasks, open files, shut down and restart, have different file formats and character schemes and default fonts.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: You’ve read how Microsoft drove its tank through the international standardization process last year and this year, finally winning ISO approval for its legacy OOXML format. The OOXML event proved that we’re in a real fight, and that money and power can break down the existing polite rules and agreements that constitute the international standardization process.
Matt Asay: If anyone out there persists in believing that Linux isn't ready for serious prime time, NYSE Euronext's dependence on Red Hat should finally lay that silly notion to rest.
Matthew Aslett: There is a small, but growing, list of VCs that clearly understand the open source development and distribution models and the long-term profit potential of open source software vendors. Can the same be said of individual and institutional investors buying and selling shares in publicly traded software companies?

ubuntu-unleashed.com: Here is a collection of gnome panel applets that I have found in the repositories, installed applets can be viewed and added to your gnome panel via right click on an empty panel space then click "Add to Panel"
blogs.ittoolbox.com: The Linux kernel is the beating heart of any Linux distribution. It is a strange and complex beast and to many people somewhat mystical in nature. I intend to shed light on some of that mystical shroud and show how simple and easy compiling a Linux kernel really is.
linux.com: Are you looking for a free and open source music player that you can use no matter which operating system you boot or switch to during the day? Meet aTunes, a small competitor to both Amarok and Apple's iTunes. Its name sounds like a hybrid of the two, and it tries to have a unique combination of the best of both user experiences.

Designed with an emphasis on usability and easy installation, OpenSolaris aims to provide a complete desktop platform for users and developers built on top of Sun's Solaris kernel. We have been testing OpenSolaris 2008.05 in order to see how it compares to modern Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora, and OpenSUSE.

aseigo: thomasz just posted a link to this email from a KDE-on-Kubuntu user. Honest and heartfelt, it's one of the most beautiful things I've read in a while. Who knows what the people of the world will do tomorrow because of what we are doing today.
osweekly.com: As long as there are choices in computing platforms, there will be those that claim that their OS is the best over all others.
