theeternaluniverse.blogspot: Most people in Linux circles have heard the slogan: "Release Early, Release Often." This often translates to a rule that you make small software changes frequently instead of doing major overhauls that take a long time to get out the door. Two projects, recently, have strayed from the above rule: Microsoft Vista and KDE4.

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: This is just a rant (hopefully it will be regarded as pertinent and non-'laming') on why Windows users try Linux and return frustrated to Windows after several hours or days. I won't praise Linux and the way it works, I won't even compare and say 'here Linux is easier because ...', instead I have a few questions for all of you who blame Linux for not being and behaving like Windows.
weblog.infoworld.com: I missed Red Hat's fiscal 1Q09 release a few weeks ago, so I went back and read the transcript and dug into the numbers a little. Total revenue growth has averaged 31 percent/quarter since fiscal 1Q08. Surprisingly though, Sales & Marketing and R&D have grown 32 percent/quarter and 37 percent/quarter over the same period.
robertogaloppini.net: Classifying Open Source production models is not an academic curiosity, as result from recent conversations on how the development model affects at large the software life-cycle and, more important, the business strategy.
Apricot is the newest project from the Blender Institute with the goal to build an open-source game instead of a Blender video this time. The characters used in the game are from the Big Buck Bunny movie, the last free movie developed using Blender under the name Project Peach.
internetling.com: I hadn’t expected such a response to my article about choosing the right desktop environment when I was writing it. It was a really quick write-up, a kind of a brainstorming session. Well this time, I tried improving it. More info, more research and more work are contained in this post.
phoronix.com: CodeWeavers, the company behind the WINE-based CrossOver Office, had introduced CrossOver Games as a gaming-oriented version of their pay-to-use edition of WINE.
community.zdnet.co.uk/blog: After nearly a full week of working with this quad-boot setup in various stages of completion, I can say that I am very pleased. It is working well and it is allowing me to easily compare the three different versions of Linux, which is just what I wanted. Here are some notes about each of the versions.
Andreas Jaeger: Since both Coolo and Michl are on vacation for two weeks, I’m a bit more involved with the openSUSE distribution. Besides announcing the openSUSE 11.1 roadmap, I was busy to stabilize the factory trees and get an installable distribution after quite some major changes have been checked into factory. The goal was to have a snapshot of factory as internal Alpha0.
fomentgroup.org/blog: Well, this is one of the Aaron-style “explain to the unbelievers why they are wrong”. This is in response to http://blog.kov.eti.br/?p=19. Well, as all trolls on the internet, you have a couple of things obviously not clear to you.
itwire.com: Hot on the heels of the Asus Eee PC comes more small subnotebooks, with Acer giving them the Intel inspired name of the netbook. Does the Intel Atom-powered Aspire One ‘netbook’ fill you with desire to acquire one?
freesoftwaremagazine.com: First Asus, then Dell, then MSI, Elonex, the Cloud and all their clones. Now Acer has entered the fray and it is all, at least initially, good news. It looks like they’ve all found a bit of Dutch courage and started to turn on the schoolyard bully from Redmond. Of what do I speak? Ultra lightweight portable laptops computers. Running varieties of GNU/Linux.
angryveteran.blogspot: So I have said that Linux is one of the keys to creating a truly free flow of information in the computer world. There is not just one kind of Linux. There are thousands of different versions availible. Most versions of Linux are completely free and all versions of Linux are OPEN SOURCE. Different versions are geared towards different uses. So with so many versions availible to you where should you begin?
pcadvisor.co.uk: Firefox 3.0 is great, but to make it even better check out these functions and features. Each can be altered or tweaked to make your web-browsing experience near perfect.

Richard Stallman: To pay so much attention to Bill Gates' retirement is missing the point. What really matters is not Gates, nor Microsoft, but the unethical system of restrictions that Microsoft, like many other software companies, imposes on its customers.
stormy-subbu.blogspot: Well It is not about which is a better OS overall, but which suited me better. PCLinuxOS(/Ripper Gang) did a really nice job in giving a very polished setup and collecting very good packages for PCLinuxOS 2007.
web4beta.com: As a mentioned in my previous post I spent a little time last night installing PCLINUXOS on my laptop. I installed the MiniMe version of the distro, the Live CD of which weighs in at just over 200MB. It’s meant to be just enough to get get everything up and running so you can then, through ATP or Synaptic, install just the software you want.
