desktoplinux.com: When Firefox 2.12 came out on Feb. 7, it brought with it fixes for three critical security holes and seven that were not quite so serious. According to the security advisories, many of these problems were also fixed in the Thunderbird 2.12 e-mail client. Unfortunately, there is no Thunderbird 2.12.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: It has long been the case that proprietary software companies, particularly Microsoft, regularly engage in FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) tactics against their opponents. Recently I’ve noticed a surge in the amount of FUD going the other way—from the FOSS community towards Microsoft and other proprietary software companies. Why do we feel it is necessary to fight FUD with FUD?
itjungle.com: The community behind the PHP scripting language that controls much of the Web application infrastructure out there on the Internet and on corporate networks has been evolving for a number of years. Andi Gutmans, one of the founders of Zend and its chief technology officer, explained that is going on in the PHP community in a recent interview.
larrythefreesoftwareguy: Talking about this particular review with a trusted friend who far out-geeks me (but I’m working on it), he made the following comparison. “Isn’t reviewing Debian kind of like reviewing your mother?”

linuxtnt.wordpress: One annoying misfeature of Gnome is the way that they have tried to foul up X Windows cut and paste. For some reason Gnome added another cut and paste feature which copies the clunky one on Microsoft Windows.
my.opera.com blog: This build implements a much requested option for all you users switching from other browsers. You can now get that Safari, Firefox, IE or <insert alternative browser of choice here> tab handling in Opera, too.
tech.blorge.com: Linux has a complicated hierarchy of files and folders that can be confusing right from the start when a user is trying to migrate to Linux. When asked for partition information by the installer, a user may feel uncomfortable continuing. We’ll try to sort through some of that mess here.
linuxhow2.com: What is QEMU? It's a free software "processor emulator", which means it's capable of running applications written for other systems natively on your current operating system. The QEMU virtual CPU core library is released underneath the GNU LGPL. QEMU is capable of running a guest operating system on top of your current operating system, in the same manner as applications such as VirtualBox OSE and Vmware Workstation.
pcmag.com: The Zonbu PC, a $99 miniature desktop that debuted earlier this year, generated some excitement among those with shallow pockets—at least until they saw the fine print.

fosswire.com: Nowadays, people have a lot of media. Music, videos and photos. One application for Linux for managing a library of photos is F-Spot. I thought I would take it for a spin, under Fedora 8 and GNOME.
Dana Blankenhorn: It’s the nature of the system, admits Andy Updegrove, legal advisor to the Linux Foundation. The format of Microsoft Office will likely become an official International Standards Organization standard at the end of this month.

mozillalinks.org: Later today, Mozilla will release Firefox 3 Beta 3, the eleventh milestone in the longest development time for a Firefox revision since the initial Firefox 1.0 on 2004. The eight alphas and trio of betas (so far), if anything, are a reflection of the long list of enhancements it (Firefox) and the underlying Gecko rendering engine, are bringing along.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I was looking for PCLinuxOS flavours with latest xorg and kernel. PCLinuxOS official version is yet to be released. So I thought why not try its gnome remaster. It's the same pclinuxos with gnome desktop. And here is the result of what I got.
blogs.ifcode.com: Well, I thought I’d create my own list of programs I FEEL I couldn’t live without, and don’t come installed as default. Here goes:
In the time between the previous community news and the last, there have been a number of new and interesting cool features added to Compiz-Fusion. The changes have taken place due to our community and our very own onestone who has added a slew of KDE 4 composite features to Compiz.
