thevarguy.com: The VAR Guy admits it: He left Novell for dead last year. But recent conversations with the company forced him to rethink all of those negative notions. In a few markets, Novell may actually thrive. And in one particular market, Novell could give Microsoft a run for its money.

openlogic.com/blogs: Abhijit Nadgouda says it's been a decade since the term open source was chosen to represent the concept. This is true, but the concept has been around far longer. Sure, it has forever changed the way software is created and consumed, but why now all of a sudden?

ostatic.com/blog: In a photo tour I posted a few days ago, I provided some handy Firefox tips that can save you time if you spend a lot of time in almost everyone's favorite open source browser.

kerneltrap.org: "We are working [on] a new I/O scheduler based on CFQ, aiming at improved predictability and fairness of the service, while maintaining the high throughput it already provides," began Fabio Checconi, announcing the BFQ I/O scheduler.
blogs.zdnet.com: My kid hates Linux too. He’s 16, loves games, and finally stopped whining for a GameCube when he learned his Windows DVDs could also be played online. But for a kid to say he “hates” Linux is simply mistaken, on the kid’s part. If he uses Google, or thousands of other sites, he loves Linux.

computerworlduk.com: The nominal approval of OOXML last month unleashed an unprecedented outpouring of anger, with much of that ire directed at the ISO for failing to uphold basic standards during the process. This has prompted it to respond with a rather interesting FAQ in which it desperately tries to defend itself.

informationweek.com/blog: How scared is Microsoft of Linux? There's a hint or two of its fear in the fact that MS is preparing a special slim-and-trim version of Windows XP, within the next month or two, to run specifically on Asus's Eee PC.

theinquirer.net: The Yankee Group has been busy again this year, but its latest report seems to offer a very different story to last year’s, with Windows now performing significantly worse than its Linux and Unix rivals.

blog.wired.com: "Nina is dead and the defendant killed her," prosecutor Paul Hora told jurors at the outset of his closing arguments here. Hora conceded to jurors that the case is based largely on circumstantial evidence. But he said the defendant should not be "rewarded" for successfully disposing of her body.

blog.olenepal.org: I got involved with OLPC back in June of 2006. It’s hard to believe that was almost two years ago! Over the last two years this enthusiasm waxed and waned. It was only in January of this year that I really got to use the little device. At OLPC offices I disassembled and reassembled two XO’s. What fun!
onlamp.com: Jeremy and I were talking one day about how the world was changing so quickly, and we meant literally beneath our feet. To make a long story short, we decided to start an impromptu video podcast called, "Spotlight on FOSS," or Spotlight on Free and Open Source Software. Once we had our concept together we contacted a few connections, and came up an interview with Mark Shuttleworth.
linuxfud.wordpress: I finished compiling my tax return about a week ago…on paper. I do not do it as some form of corporal mortification nor does it have anything to do with the lack of tax software for Linux…ah, and that last point is a great segway into the next item on my Top 10 List, Linux software is always behind the curve.
junauza.com: I decided to take a closer look at Slax, by getting the latest “Distribution Release” which is version 6.0.3. This time, I’m using our ancient Prestigio 109 laptop to fully check the features and capabilities of this tiny distro.
phoronix.com: When looking at the AMD Phenom 9500 under Linux, we had found this processor had posed a number of issues from kernel panics to other troubles. Released a month prior to the first Phenom desktop CPUs were the quad-core Opteron 2300 "Barcelona" processors. We have benchmarked the new Opteron 2356 in both single and dual CPU configurations and have compared the results -- under Linux -- to two of Intel's quad-core Xeon processors.
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: Some time ago, my father switched to Linux (Ubuntu). I think in some of the contributing factor to his switching was my excitement. I don’t know any other older people who use Linux, so I recently asked my father (he’s in his eighties and has been using Linux for about 6 years now) how he felt about Linux and what were some of his opinions.
fedoraproject.org: PreUpgrade is a new feature being developed for Fedora 9. It allows a user to do all the tedious work of a safe Anaconda upgrade in a running system that is still usable. This is the answer to every user who has ever wanted to do a live upgrade with yum, but been worried about the safety of doing this.
