Richard M. Stallman: The One Laptop Per Child project, launched by MIT professor Nicholas Negroponte in 2003, was supposed to lead millions of children around the world to information technology and freedom. The plans aimed for low cost, enabling many children to use the machines, and free software, so they would have freedom while using them. I thought it was a good idea. But...

informationweek.com/blog: It's inevitable. I don't have the Windows 7 bits on hand, myself, but I know that one of the first things I plan to do once I get them -- it's a "when", not an "if" -- is to throw it onto the same hardware as my various Linux installations and see how things behave.
bushweed.blogspot: t seems that Linux distribution releases are getting closer together, or maybe i'm just noticing it now. Remembering, my compatriot, Mr Shuttleworth's call for coordinated releases, it might be an obvious question to see the differences in packages and their versions.
blogs.zdnet.com: On the surface, it would appear that a slowing economy might pave the way for increased Linux and Open Source software adoption by the unwashed masses.
itwire.com: First, it was the Debian people who were jealous of the success of Ubuntu. They, at least, had some reason to be annoyed. Now it appears there are others, from other distributions, who are envious too, and try to guise their envy under a veil of concern for GNU/Linux as a whole.
theregister.co.uk: Canonical, the developers behind Ubuntu Linux have release Intrepid Ibex, the successor to last spring's Hardy Heron release. Ibex isn't a long-term support release - which might put off some large organizations - but for Ubuntu desktop fans, version 8.10 makes a worthwhile upgrade.
opensuse.org: The openSUSE Project is happy to announce the availability of openSUSE 11.1 beta 4. This release includes a number of important bugfixes since the last beta, as well as a few new bugs that need to be squashed before the final release.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: KDE was one of the first desktop environment I used , when I started using Linux Back In 1998 , KDE was just out of beta and KDE Team had just released 1.0 version of the Desktop Environment. There was nothing exceptionally different in KDE that gnome did not offer, TILL NOW !!!
phoronix.com: It's no secret that much of the code-base that makes up the modern-day X.Org Server is old and in some places bloated. The X.Org Server continues to evolve and has received a number of major additions in recent times, but wouldn't a clean and lighter server that is designed around today's needs be ideal?
hehe2.net: One of the most powerful attributes that are running for Linux as opposed to other OS’es is it flexibility and customizibility. Its one of the first things mentioned when a Linux geek is asked about Linux. And we love to show it. I trekked Gnome Look and KDE Look and chose for you these 30 great login screen themes.
readwriteweb.com: It's the perfect storm. Computer manufacturers have figured out how to produce lightweight, low-end machines that cost very little just as the economy takes a big tumble. Meanwhile, software applications that once needed robust hardware to run are now moving to the cloud. The result? An explosion of netbooks.
This month's Linux Gazette is out. Highlights include: Writing Network Device Drivers for Linux, The Red Hat Linux Boot Process, and An overview of the Geographic Information System GRASS.

raiden.net: One of the great holy grails of the compression world has been to get the smallest possible file using the best possible performance. To date, that's been a bit like grasping for a wisp of smoke and hoping to get something.
tgdaily.com: Mozilla had a big month as Firefox is closing in on the 20% market share mark. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer continues to lose share.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Over 3 years was 3.0 in the making. And just what comes with that three years in development?What you really don’t see from a simple list is just how impressive some of these new features are. But if you look beyond the cosmetic you will see some really impressive work that has gone on.
earthweb.com: The netbook revolution is upon us—possibly due to the gotta-have-it factor more than anything else. After all, netbooks practically scream "buy me" from store display tables as a result of their featherweight designs and low prices.
