freesoftwaremagazine.com: This book is written for the open source software package maintainer. I’m purposely not using the terms “free software” or “proprietary software that’s free”. The use of the term “open source” is critical in this context. You see, open source defines a type of software distribution channel.
redhatmagazine.com: AbiWord just had a great 2.6 release and the developers took several hours of their spare time over a few weeks period answering questions and providing information. Thanks to the team and especially MarcMaurer for his time and patience. We present you a detailed interview with the AbiWord team on a broad range of topics.
linux.com: I use Tomboy, an open source notetaking app, to cull and organize the hundreds of bits of information I track, and to prioritize it on to-do lists on the fly. When we first reviewed Tomboy 0.3.5, it had some obvious flaws. The project has had a number of updates since then, and the newest version, 0.10.0, really makes the grade.

Matt Asay: For those who had forgotten, Oracle provides Linux support. It's called "Unbreakable Linux." Most of you stopped thinking about it long ago, but for those who didn't, Oracle's chief corporate architect, Edward Screven decided to remind everyone.
arstechnica.com: It has been almost three years since the release of OpenOffice.org 2.0. During that time we've seen community fragmentation and frustration resulting from Sun's heavy involvement with the office suite's development, and even a third-party online version that provides editing and collaboration features. Now, the open source office suite is back with a new 3.0 beta release.
osweekly.com: Opera is light years faster than other browsers I have tried in the past. Most pages load in a fraction of a second on broadband, even during peak usage times. But even with its tremendous speed, some pages using WordPress, among other content management systems, are not always being rendered correctly.
blogs.the451group: We’ve recently seen the popular EeePc in Windows XP form. There are even concerns that Linux in the EeePC ultra-portable computers — or indeed Linux in the larger subnotebook, mini-notebook or whatever you want to call this emerging category — is now likely to evaporate in the face of Windows versions.

hartmansblog.blogspot: There are approximately 200 workstations around campus for student use of which approximately 35 are Pentium 4 powered. The rest are either P3 or P2 machines with around 256MB RAM. The simple fact of the matter is that with machines like these there are few options when it comes to Operating Systems. Xubuntu though seems to work pretty well.
And: Thoughts on Linux/Ubuntu
Issue #21 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. Highlights this week include openSUSE 11.0 Beta 2, People of openSUSE: Greg Kroah-Hartman, and Jigish Gohil: Sliced sphere in compiz-fusion-git packages.

And: Could Novell kill OpenSolaris?
linux.com: Slackware Linux has stood strong for more than a decade by refusing to compromise. There was a time when people used to say, "If you want to learn Linux and learn it well, give Slackware a try." Attila Craciun, a Romanian software developer and Linux enthusiast, has ported the Slackware tree to the AMD64 architecture to create the Bluewhite64 distro. We spoke with him to find out about Bluewhite64, where it came from, and where it's going.
maysville-linux-users-group.org: blueMarine is an open source application for the digital photo workflow, the blueMarine project will provide you an all-in-one tool for managing your photos, from the shoot up to the archiving and beyond.
linuxdevices: Ubuntu Linux 7.04 is now available for Sharp's Zaurus PDAs. The 0.1 release comes with a minimalist filesystem that can be launched in an emulator, enhanced with software from the vast Ubuntu archives, and then flashed onto a real Zaurus.
Jeremy Allison: The OOXML document format war is over, and the good guys lost. The world will be a worse place because of it, for a long time to come. I recently got to attend a couple of conferences. Jim Zemlin, the head of the Linux Foundation, has a vision of where Linux should go in the next ten years, and it is breathtaking in scope.
raiden.net: One of the most prized rights of any American is the right to privacy and security. It's something people in some countries would kill for. Yet now there appears to be a very frightening trend growing. Your privacy and security are being thrown out the window wholesale in favor of easier access by law enforcement.
terminally-incoherent.com: I love how anti-linux advocates and windows fanbois always pick on Linux for hardware compatibility or rather lack of thereof. Just about every rant about Linux I have seen so far includes a gripe about it not supporting new or exotic hardware out of the box. Funny thing is that, neither does Windows.
