onlamp blogs: The spirit of the open source movement operates under the assumption that software’s most valued resource, its code, should be freely available to everyone. Despite the obvious advantages of making code readily available to anyone around the world, there are some cultural differences that complicate the open source movement.
vista.blorge.com: As you may recall, outgoing PC Magazine editor Jim Louderback had almost nothing good to say about Vista in his most recent column. Just about everyone I know that has used Vista is going to stick with it and Information Week poses the reasons why that not so strangely, I agree with.
Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of multi-display graphics solutions for professionals, introduces new 1.4.5 Linux drivers providing enhanced features and additional support to its Matrox EpicA TC2 and EpicA TC4 multi-display graphics cards for thin computing.
LWN: Stable kernel 22.214.171.124 has been released. This one contains a single patch - a security fix for the signal vulnerability which allows, under some circumstances, an arbitrary signal to be sent to a setuid process.
phoronix: Last week marked the release of the first GNOME 2.20.0 beta, which also defined the user interface freeze for GNOME 2.20.0. With the UI freeze we have taken some screenshots from GNOME 2.19.90 for your viewing pleasure of the subtle changes.

seopher: This may not be as absurd a claim as you may think, especially when you take into consideration the minor backlash that Ubuntu has experienced. So is PCLinuxOS the next poster-child of usable Linux?
techzone: We all believe that open source is associated with free, as in free speech, software. As a layman, I started thinking about the sanity of people who work so hard to produce such quality software products and then allow anyone to simply download and use them for free. What the heck!! Where the hell do they make money ?? How can so many people simply be doing charity ??
zdnet: While there has been some controversy over whether LTSP support would be added to SUSE’s so-called EduCD, to be distributed with their fourth quarter version 10.3 release, a wide variety of software slated for inclusion in their education-centered set of add-ons is now available for download and testing.
linux.com: Most Web publishing systems on the market can automatically generate RSS feeds, but there are situations where you might want to have fine-grained control over your RSS feeds. For example, you might want to provide alternative RSS item descriptions, or to manually select which RSS items to publish.
the Inquirer: GOOD NEWS is never late, so it's nice to note that The Linux Fund relaunched last month just before the Open Source Convention OSCON in Portland, Oregon.
beconfused.com/blog: Finally I got some time away from my work and I decided to explore something new. I decided to install Ubuntu. I am familiar with Windows and the Mac but I haven’t really touched Ubuntu. So I shrink my Windows Vista partition by 60 GB and throw in Ubuntu to dual-boot.
masuran.org: Yesterday I installed Debian Lenny on one of my workstations to give it a try. Ever since I tried Ubuntu I've been in love with it, but you all know how love can be blinding So trying a new distribution every now and then is a good idea. Ubuntu is based on Debian, so I wanted to see where the latest version of Debian differed from the latest Ubuntu release.
This article shows how you can build your own video community using lighttpd with its mod_flv_streaming module (for streaming .flv videos, the format used by most major video communities such as YouTube) and its mod_secdownload module (for preventing hotlinking of the videos).
manilastandardtoday: WHEN I switched from Windows to Linux last year, a decision I had to make as a technology writer was what to do with readers who were still on Microsoft’s proprietary operating system.
matt hartley: I hear the argument everyday. That somehow, any open source project must not be very good because it does not cost anything to use it.
drupal.org: Aug 20, 2007 marked the end of the 2007 Google Summer of Code. Below is a table of this year's students, their projects, along with links to download and (where available) try them out. Please help test and provide feedback!
opensuse news: Today we are taking a look at the new One-Click Install technology which aims to simplify package management for users. We will see how this is integrated into the openSUSE Build Service and we’ll have a talk with Benjamin Weber, the original author and maintainer of One-Click Install.
iTWire: The topic of Linux on the desktop is one that raises its head every couple of days somewhere on the web - and here it is again. Windows use is also a habit - it is developed in the kindergarten, continues in school, goes with you to college and then into the workplace.
