earthweb.com: A commenter on one of my articles recently asked: "Why is it that true believers feel the need to replace every last proprietary app?" He continued: "VMware, Skype, and Google Earth are best-of-breed and free-as-in-beer." Over the last year or two, such sentiments -- often rudely expressed -- have become increasingly common.
opensuse.org: The openSUSE Factory distribution is our permanent moving target, this is the place where all Alpha and Beta versions are mastered from. We are currently in the process of adjusting some things due to the move from SUSE internal AutoBuild to openSUSE Build Service:
blog.eracc.com: One of the prior articles here dealt with the ease of installation of Adobe Reader on Linux. The first comment to that article speculated on Linux development being a “pain” even for Adobe. So, I contacted Adobe. I received a nice reply from Kelly Murphy at that organization.
redhat.com: After a week(end) of hacking, we're just not there yet for Beta. The Release Engineering team is recommending a slip of the Beta release date to Tuesday Sept 30th, , which would put the Fedora 10 release date at November 25th.
compiz-fusion.org: This is the fourth development release of Compiz Fusion 0.7 series, which will be the basis for the stable 0.8.0 release. This release, based on Compiz 0.7.8, brings the usual translations updates and bug fixes plus some work on kde4 integration and a lot of improvement to animations plugin.
phoronix.com: Earlier this month the ATI Radeon HD 4600 series from AMD was unveiled as the new mid-range graphics cards derived from their flagship RV770 graphics core. The Radeon HD 4650 and Radeon HD 4670 are the two RV730-based products now available. The ATI Radeon HD 4670 may not be able to compete with the Radeon HD 4800 series in all of the tests, but at a price of under $100 USD is it worth pursuing?

arstechnica.com: From its very inception, the Amiga has been about defying conventional wisdom. Sadly, these days the Amiga is no longer breaking new ground technologically. However, the platform continues to defy conventional wisdom.
gentoo.org: In future releases, Gentoo will focus on a more back-to-basics approach that will give you up-to-date install media on a regular basis and make much better use of our human resources. Consequently, we're canceling the 2008.1 release.
itpro.co.uk/blogs: I have a sneaking feeling that after having done all that back in the days of the 0.8 kernel and with more than a handful of Gentoo installs, I really should I be feeling a little guilty as to just how easy it was to get a dual-boot Linux install working on my main desktop PC.
cyberciti.biz: GNU/Linux and open source software offers lots of choices to end users. This can create a problem for new users. Most Linux distributions provide a program for browsing a list of thousands of free software applications that have already been tested.
linux.com: Umit is a user-friendly graphical interface to Nmap that lets you perform network port scanning. The utility's most useful features are its stored scan profiles and the ability to search and compare saved network scans.
it.toolbox.com/blogs: Many times when looking around the internet for the rare program that is not in the repository. Or even if you want a newer version of a program that is in the repository. You will find that some sites have pre-prepared binary packages which can be downloaded and installed.
linuxplanet.com: Parts I and II of this series covered covered the "planetarium" programs KStars and XEphem. They can answer pretty much any question about what's where and when in the night sky. But they don't really give you the feeling of being there like a couple of newer entries on the Linux astronomy scene: Stellarium and Celestia.
finextra.com: Derivatives exchange operator CME Group has joined the Linux Foundation, with its associate director Vinod Kutty taking on the chair of the organisation's end user council.

kroah.com: One main question that I saw a lot, and was even asked about during my talk, was "what about Canonical's work on the desktop/Gnome/KDE"? I really don't know if they have contributed a lot of effort back upstream on these projects, that wasn't my point here.
