newlinuxuser.com: In one way or another, Ubuntu has been getting popular over the past how many years. In the beginning I didn’t like Ubuntu much. For the last two years I’ve been wondering if Ubuntu will be the Linux distro to rule them all.
junauza.com: Blender Institute, part of the Blender Foundation, made another animated open content film entitled Big Buck Bunny. I watched Big Buck Bunny yesterday together with my 3-yr old son. While Elephant's Dream has a darker storyline, Big Buck Bunny is the complete opposite.
polishlinux.org: While looking at modern operating systems, like: Ubuntu, Windows or Mac OS X, it’s difficult to believe that the GUI is a pretty old idea. The fact that we can see icons on the desktop, or that we can move the mouse pointer around doesn’t mean we’re using a desktop environment. This term stands for a whole of programs enabling to work in a graphical mode.
my.opera.com: If one word should describe the new look, it would be Sharp. We wanted to create a skin with clean lines and clear icons, inspired by the intuitive symbols you can expect at an airport and in line with our Scandinavian heritage. This also better matches the look and feel we introduced on the Wii and refine in Opera 9.5 for Windows Mobile.
crn.com: In the open-source world, it's fairly commonplace for developers to modify an existing application and create a new application.

itwire.com: Nothing warms the cockles of a Linux lover's heart more than to hear that X or Y big company/city is migrating its desktops to the free operating system. And nothing can evoke more bitter insults than the reversal of any such decision.
techradar.com: The laptop market has been absolutely turned on its head in the last 12 months. In the year that Alienware has unleashed its frighteningly quick Area-51 m15x gaming laptop, all anyone wants to talk about is the latest low-end Eee PC rival to have broken the £300 barrier.

desktoplinux.wordpress: I’m trying out a new distro on my new laptop and so far, pretty good. This is a Dell Vostro 1500 (1 G RAM Intel 2 core duo) which came preloaded with Windows XP.
