usalug-org.blogspot: I have been promoting sidux for a while now, and sidux 2008-04 is one of their best yet. Decked out in Yuletide green, with a white ground cover, sidux 2008-04 is one cool desktop system for the Yuletide season. Why do I like sidux so much?
blogs.computerworld.com: For me, it's been the 'year' of the Linux desktop since 1995. That's when I started using Linux on a regular basis. My first distribution was Slackware. Slackware is still around, and it's still a fine Linux for people like me who came to Linux from Unix.

blog.linuxtoday: I took the plunge and decided to upgrade my two Gutsy boxes to Hardy. These are real working PCs, not experimental test boxes, so I was hoping for a straightforward dist-upgrade that preserved all of my settings and applications.
That’s right, we’ve made it to the twentieth issue of Full Circle! It’s great to have been around this long and to have helped the Ubuntu community for so long. Here’s hoping that we get to Issue 40.
phoronix.com: David Airlie has just called upon Linus Torvalds to pull the kernel mode-setting framework and Intel KMS driver support into the Linux 2.6.29 kernel.
linux.com: The Interclue extension is supposed to give you a preview of links in Firefox before you visit them, saving you mouse-clicks and, with a little luck, allowing you to move quickly between multiple links on the same page. Unfortunately, the determination to monetize the add-on and keep its source code closed results in elaborations that make the basic idea less effective.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Since Linux is free, you’d think that the developers working with it are working for free too, right? Not so according to a piece on itcareerplanet.com.
raiden.net: GoblinX is a LiveCD distribution built around Slackware Linux, and designed for ease of use. The flexibility of GoblinX is worthy of mention, as even its boot options show this ability. But is GoblinX an angel in disguise, or a troll under the bridge? Let's find out.
thelinuxnewb.com: Linux Mint is one of those distributions you just can't help but love. Easy to use, stable, flexible, and so much more. Built from Ubuntu, it's been my mantra for a while that Linux Mint is “Ubuntu done right.”
techiemoe.com: SuSE and I have a long and generally pleasant history. At least, that was the story with SuSE up until version 10.3. At that point, things started to go decidedly downhill, and it hasn't been until relatively recently that I'm beginning to feel comfortable again.
pcmech.com: One of the big perks of using a Linux distribution is having a choice of what window manager you want to use. The one I’ll be concentrating on is fluxbox, a window manager.
blog.gwright.org: Today I got down and installed Ubuntu 8.10 on this new X300, and things went rather smoothly. In terms of things that work, the list is rather good. However, I have noticed a few problems.
computerworlduk.com: There's been a certain excitement in the blogosphere around the release of some figures about Firefox's market share in Europe. One thing that few seem to have picked up on is the unsatisfactory methodology behind these numbers.
blog.andrewmin.com: I just ordered my first computer yesterday. It’s a real he-man’s gaming computer. But while these were all expensive (especially the video card), none of them compared to one item on the list: Windows. That’s the hope that Linux companies must look forward to.
computerworld.com: When you're talking Linux, three big names always pop up: Canonical's Ubuntu, Novell's openSUSE and Red Hat's Fedora. Each of these "big three" has recently released a new version of its distribution, which means it's time to check them out and decide which is No 1.
