junauza.blogspot: Astronomy, considered as one of the oldest sciences, is the scientific study of celestial objects outside the Earth's atmosphere. I’ve collected here a list of well-recognized free/open-source Astronomy software. I hope this helps:
fosswire.com: Renaming a big set of files can be a right chore. For example, if you’ve just imported a set of digital photos, they’ll usually have really unhelpful and undescriptive filenames such as DSC_0000.jpg.
informationweek.com/blog: Last year Nokia confirmed that it is working on a WiMax-equipped version of its N800-series Internet tablet. Until this week, there hadn't been further news of the device.

mit.edu/~birge/blog: I’m a sucker for a good story and that Linux certainly is: millions of programmers working out of the sheer goodness of their hearts on a project to benefit humanity by providing a free operating system. So, it’s with heady optimism and hope for the children that once a year I anxiously download and install the latest incarnation of Linux.
blogbeebe.blogspot: Ubuntu 8.04, a.k.a. Hardy Heron, Alpha 5 hit the wires late Friday evening. I downloaded my copy around 8pm Orlando local time (EST). After super and kitchen duty I sat down and ran the release around the four systems I have at home to see how it worked.
infinity-sama.blogspot: When I say Linux here, it mostly refers to Ubuntu and its derivatives, considered as one of the friendliest distros, and a pioneer in bringing Linux to new users.

sys-con.com: Although organizations are not realizing the full potential benefits of open source due to the way open source projects are currently managed, this does not mean that there are no benefits from developing in open source. Once you get past the “free developer” presumption and carefully look at the larger picture, it becomes clear that open source brings real value.
worthplaying.com: COR Entertainment announced Alien Arena 2008, a complete overhaul and update of the core game. Every player model has been replaced, nearly every weapon model, and nearly one half of the arenas. Sixteen new maps in total. Alien Arena 2008 will be released for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
blog.seattlepi: Microsoft made headlines yesterday for its overtures to the open-source software community, including some that practically cast the move as a surrender by the company. But a reality check seems warranted: What is the company really promising here?

bobbocanfly.wordpress: Tonight i was faced with a dillema. Leave a 160gb USB external hard drive lying collecting dust, or risk my entire system by installing a copy of Ubuntu 8.10 Hardy Heron Alpha 4. Obviously my only choice was the latter.
linuxtoday.com: Once in a while, a confluence of random events (or not so random, depending on your belief system) can create the ideal aha! moment. The moment of clarity when all the pieces just fall into place and you realize "that's what's going on!" I believe I have had one of those moments.
opensource.org: On November 2nd, 2006, Microsoft and Novell announced a business agreement that was characterized as worse than useless by Bradly Kuhn, CTO of the Software Freedom Law Center. This week we see another announcement from Microsoft that seems to offer everything we didn't like about the Novell deal to a wider range of developers and nothing that meets the first test of our open source principles.
linux.com: There comes a time, right after you burn your 137th MP3 CD, when you start feeling the need to establish a system for finding all the songs you treasure so much. It's the same with movies, application kits, books, and music -- you need software that lets you index your media quickly and output detailed search results. Here's a selection of Linux applications you can use to ease your work.
Dana Blankenhorn: About a week ago I got an e-mail asking me to comment on rumors that Nvidia might buy AMD. Yesterday, however, came some news relevant to this beat which lets me comment on the whole ball of wax, and state clearly that Mr. Ruiz is not the problem.
lifehacker.com: Like a famed race horse or a classic book, you don't just throw away a laptop because it's banged up a little. Even if it seems outdated and underpowered, most any laptop is still small, quiet, and relatively low on power consumption, making it a seriously valuable spare to keep handy—even without a working screen.
arstechnica.com: A new version of the GStreamer plugin modules was released yesterday after eight months of intensive development. One of the most significant features in this release is support for using native Quicktime and DirectShow codecs on Mac OS X and Windows.
