While visiting Stefano Zacchiroli the www 2008 conference in china Sir Tim Berners-Lee offered Debian kudos for its well thought-out encapsulation/packaging of libraries.

blog.sontek.net: On Thursday, May 9th, 2008 the Utah Python User Group decided to settle the debate that has plagued us developers since the beginning of time: If you were a programming language, what editor would you use?
bloggernews.net: Well, it’s time to update the Linux. The latest update is Hardy Heron. Computer people like cute names, and each Linux/ubuntu update has an animal name to identify it. Hardy Heron, gutsy Gibbon, etc.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: In this article i discuss PCMan File Manger which is a lightweight alternative to nautilus and how to set various menus in Ubuntu to using PCMan File manager instead of using nautilus.
itwire.com: With Ubuntu 8.04 now on the streets, it’s time to catch a breather and reflect on just why Ubuntu gets all the hype. Why is Ubuntu the hottest brand in Linuxdom at this time? Why is it the distro most frequently advocated? I posed these questions to readers and LUG members; here’s the feedback from real-life Linux users.
on-being-open.blogspot: I just read an interesting post over at Linux.com by someone named Susan Linton. Titled "Review: Hardy Heron converts an Ubuntu skeptic", the article has some interesting things to add to the discussion about Linux's readiness to be ones only desktop operating system. But in one case it left me feeling rather ... well... cold I guess.
meandubuntu.wordpress: In my continuing quest to both try new things in general, and try new things that will help me be more productive, I recently set up VirtualBox.
opendotdotdot.blogspot: To my shame, Peter Murray-Rust put up a reply to my post below in just a few hours. It shows that even such a key defender of openness as Peter finds he "needs an MS OS on my machine because it makes it easier to use tools such as LiveMeeting.
groklaw: Microsoft has just approached the Blender guys, and I would assume have or will approach other FOSS projects since we learn that Microsoft has assigned a guy to work with Open Source projects, with a request for information on how to make Blender run better on Windows.
fosswire.com: OpenOffice.org is generally considered the flagship of productivity programs in the open source world, but it’s not the only choice. I’ve looked at alternative word processor AbiWord previously, in a round-up of many different alternatives to OOo, but today I want to look at it in a lot more detail.
kdedevelopers.org: Just want to point out four improvements of the YaST Qt package selector in the upcoming openSUSE 11.0 that were missing too long, much requested (at least by me) and now added:
securitydistro.com: As the SecurityDistro team adds live security distributions to our list, we like to take things one step further and get to know the developers behind the distribution. This gives us insight into what they see coming in the months ahead and a little information on themselves.
dhruvasagar.com: I have now mostly moved to Ubuntu, today I will elaborate and discuss a bit on my experience of the transition from Windows to Ubuntu and I’ll be targeting Torrent Applications specifically.
n00.be: In today’s episode of spot the operating system we present to you the Belgian movie Vermist where police detectives apparently use Ubuntu as their operating system of choice.
This document describes how to enable and configure Compiz Fusion on a Mandriva One 2008.1 Spring GNOME desktop with an NVIDIA graphics card.
opendotdotdot.blogspot: A little while back I gave Peter Murray-Rust a hard time for daring to suggest that OOXML might be acceptable for archiving purposes. There are two issues here.
tectonic.co.za: With the release of Ubuntu Hardy Heron now behind us, most eyes are turned to October when Intrepid Ibex, or Ubuntu Linux 8.10, will make its debut. While Hardy Heron was designed to be stable enough to be a long-term support release, Intrepid Ibex promises to be packed with more exciting features, something that Ubuntu fans always enjoy.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Perl is an amazingly powerful and succinct language. Although not the most fashionable, Perl is consistent and supported on a vast range of platforms. Perl by Example written by Ellie Quigley and published by Prentice Hall is a comprehensive, example based, and thorough book.
blogs.pcworld: If you've installed Ubuntu (or Kubuntu or Xubuntu or Edubuntu or Gobuntu) and are wondering what those other desktops are like, there's an easy way to find out. No, I don't mean download, burn and boot the respective CDs. I mean just add 'em to your current configuration.
