sys-con.com: The computer desktop today is what the television was to people in the 1980s. It’s the single most important channel for consumer entertainment and information. The computer desktop – as was the case with newspapers before there was radio and radio before there was television – has become the high ground from which empires are built.
bytebot.net/blog: In an interesting twist (interesting for Microsoft and their OOXML apologists), about a month ago, MAMPU, decided that they were going to go OpenOffice.org and go ODF, and dump Microsoft Office by year-end 2008. Now, you can hold them to their word.
itwire.com: Microsoft PR threw down the gauntlet; “see how Windows Server 2008 stacks up versus Linux,” they say. There’s a “Get the Facts” URL being promoted with claims of direct comparisons between the two operating systems. Anyone reading the headlines alone could be fooled into thinking there’s substance to be found.
computerworld.com.au: Linux, which has been much maligned by Symbian and Microsoft as a non-starter in the handset operating system market, is set to see strong growth as issues with framework fragmentation and silicon requirements are alleviated.
arstechnica.com: European web metrics company Xiti has published browser marketshare statistics for March. The data collected by Xiti indicates that the open source Firefox web browser has climbed to almost 29 percent marketshare in Europe, where it is still steadily increasing in popularity. This is no small accomplishment.

linuxextremist.com: Both Firefox and Opera are on the cusp of releasing new versions of their browser software. Comparing the two at the moment may seem unfair, given that both are works in progress. However, the two have been going back and forth in being the best, fastest browser for Linux.
stuartl.longlandclan.yi.org/blog: Lately I’ve been busy with university stuff. In particular, my final year project, which is investigating Controller Area Networks, in the context of the Atmel AT91SAM7X256 MCU. These microcontrollers are a low-cost system-on-chip based around the ARM7TMDI core. This particular one includes 64KB RAM, 256KB flash, RS-232, device-side USB 2.0, 10/100Mbps ethernet, and of course, a CAN interface.

debaday.debian.net: Sonata is a GTK+ music player, written in Python. Actually, it is an MPD client, which is it’s most important advantage. MPD is a daemon that plays your music at background (maybe on a different computer). It can use different front ends, you can use it even from command-line and it continues playing even if your client or X is crashes.
lxer.com: Earlier this week an article concerning Vista and market share and one about how Open Source Software has cost the IT Industry $60 Billion dollars over the last five years or so. Needless to say this generated some conversations about its validity. I got to wondering if there have ever been accurate market share statistics for Linux or any operating system for that matter.

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: A search for "linux ready for desktop" brings millions of results on any search engine. The phrase "Linux Desktop Year" has been around 5 years now. Over the years, the question on its validity has been asked again and again. Fundamentally what does one mean by "Linux Desktop Year"?
blogs.techrepublic.com: Ah the GPL. The GNU Public License. It’s probably one of the most controversial topics in all of the IT world. What is it and how is it enforced? Who backs it and who defends it? And who watches the watchers? Now there’s the real rub.
