screenage.de/blog: Let me introduce you today to a package that is quite unknown as you hopefully never need it. But when you need it and have not thought about it before, it is probably already too late. I am talking about “sash” - the “Stand Alone SHell”. Yet another shell? Yes and no.

engadget.com: We got a nice helping of slides dropped on our virtual doorstep this evening, fleshing out Dell's upcoming netbook -- which they seem to be calling the "Dell E." Um, Eeenteresting name choice, but that doesn't seem set in stone, and there's plenty else going on here to ponder over.
ericsbinaryworld: The Neuros OSD is a device created by Neuros Technology. This is a device I am REALLY excited about buying. I first heard about it in the latest issue of Linux Format Magazine, which gave it a rating of 9/10. What’s so awesome about this device? It runs Linux! “So what?”
opencomputer.net: Workrave is a Windows and Linux only program that can help prevent dreaded repetitive strain injuries. Unfortunately techies are quite familiar with RSI. Once installed, Workrave runs silently in the background monitoring how much time you’re using the computer.
digested.blogspot: I hate graphical file managers. Not only graphical. I hated the text mode filemanagers of yore. I feel deep comfort seeing the lonely and stark command prompt. Using Dolphin the other day to browse through my drives, I realized why.
pcmag.com: Opera is hoping to steal some of Firefox's thunder, with a launch timed to fall just before the open-source darling's version 3 unveiling. Although I found a few sites that didn't fully support it, and occasionally ran into a stability issue, Opera's problems are minor. Opera is a one-stop Internet shop, and it's faster, safer, and more compatible than ever.
Aaron J. Seigo: Havoc Pennington wrote recently in his blog about reinvigorating GNOME development and reflects upon the idea of delivering yet another "desktop system" to the market. There are two problems with his statement.

networkworld.com: Wall Street firms increasingly are buying into Linux, but some still need convincing that open source licensing and support models won't make using the technology more trouble than its worth.
alternativenayk.wordpress: I finally found time to download and install Linux Mint 5.0 today, and happily wiped my already-feeling-outdated Ubuntu 8.04. The moral of the story is, Linux Mint 5.0 (Elyssa) is not a “rock your world” kind of distro, but it certain is easy to use as promised.
celettu.wordpress: I hate Opera. I really do. And I hate it even more because, unlike Internet Explorer, or Konqueror, I want to like it. I want to make it work, and I just can’t. It’s maddening.

linux.com: Fifteen years in the making, everyone's favorite software to run Windows programs on Linux and Unix, Wine, is almost ready for its 1.0 release. If all goes well, Alexandre Julliard, Wine's lead developer, says that Wine 1.0 should appear on June 20, two weeks after the program's fifteenth birthday.
temporaryland.wordpress: The FOSS (Free/Open Source Software) Community knows, thanks to leaked Microsoft internal documents, that since about 1998 Microsoft has been in a sort of war against them. Because of this, it is not surprising that the FOSS community has looked at Microsoft with suspicion and has vilified it to no end. But, is Microsoft really evil?
informationweek.com/blog: The other day, while in a phone conversation, the old canard about open source being a "disruptive technology" came up. It's true, but I think it's one of those things (like "information wants to be free") that runs the risk of becoming a thought-cliché. You always want to talk about what's being disrupted, and why, and to what end.
itwire.com: Rarely does one find the proprietor of a company that is closely connected to any kind of software getting on mailing lists to try to correct public perceptions of his product. In that respect, Mark Shuttleworth stands apart from all his peers.
junauza.com: For most hardcore gamers, Linux is taboo since they probably think that they cannot play their favorite Windows-only games with it. They do have a point of staying away from Linux, but if they knew that they can play some of their most wanted games on Linux, will they take the switch?
techtarget.com: Launched with fanfare a month and a half ago, OpenLogic Inc.'s Open Source Census, a survey of open source software adoption has scanned more than a thousand computers to date, but the tally is far short of the volume required to draw meaningful conclusions.
liquidat.wordpress: Recently my distribution of choice, Fedora, published a new version, Fedora 9. This one featured KDE 4.0, and there were also KDE 4.0.80 packages available, and I decided to take a look at them. Unfortunately, I had to return to Fedora 8 and KDE 3.5.9 - but not for long, that’s for sure.
