pcworld blogs: After doing a bit more research, I came across DeLi Linux, a Linux distribution that claimed it could run on extremely old computers, even ones that had Windows 3.1! I had to check it out.
linuxworld: PC vendors haven't been eager to know how many users actually run Linux when it's preloaded on their low-end PCs. But Everex, the latest company to introduce a low-priced desktop Linux system, will have the information, thanks to the software update system behind its Linux distribution.
Speden tells PC World that the open source community and Autodesk can work together to make sense of the surge in location enabled and spatially aware information.

Linux Planet: Everyone knows they should make regular backups of their data. But hardly anyone is as diligent with backups as they should be. So in this two-part series we're going to learn some nice simple methods for making regular backups on single PCs or small networks.
dev.compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: Wodor has hacked together an anaglyph plugin for Compiz that turns ordinary monitor into a real 3D one. The blurry image you see below is an anaglyph rendered by the plugin, you need 3D glasses or use anything transparent red (left eye) and cyan(right eye) to view the magic.
zdnet blogs: If you’re going to put an open letter out there for commentary don’t be shy about the details. Bancilhon implies that Microsoft fought dirty. Is this dirty as in illegal?

wadejolson.wordpress.com: For me, Las Vegas walks the fine line between interesting and inane. And so it is with web services and the talk of a mysterious gnome online desktop. Just the right mix of buzz words and ambiguity to keep me confused. What’s an online desktop?
internetnews: When it comes to big enterprise IT deployments in the U.S., there is no enterprise bigger than the federal government itself.
