zdnet.com: I spent the day at a conference sponsored by our SIS developer. What’s interesting, however, was the participants’ reactions to an Asus Eee PC that one of the other attendees brought with her.
earthweb.com: James Maguire, Datamation's managing editor, claims he has no interest in software whose source code is available for editing. "I'm not a software engineer," he says. "If I can't grab it off the shelf, I can't use it." He's half-joking, of course. But he echoes the opinion of many people outside the community.
opera.com: Today we released the first alpha of our new web developer tool. The objective for this first alpha release is to get feedback and of course allow you to start using it. You should expect it to be buggy and even missing some key features, but that is what alpha means.
Joe Brockmeier: Sun finally pushed out its Project Indiana yesterday, in the form of a packaged version of OpenSolaris that looks quite a lot like a Linux distro — minus, of course, the kernel that gives Linux its name. On the one hand, I’m pleased to see any FOSS project moving forward. On the other hand, I’m wondering what problems Sun can solve with OpenSolaris that it can’t solve by participating in the Linux community?
Jonathan Corbet (LWN): Shortly before heading off to the Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit, the laptop got moved to the Ubuntu "Hardy Heron" distribution. Needless to say, there have been some interesting ups and downs (literally) since then.
linuxsolutions.fr: Will Linux ever crossover to the average home user? It’s hard to say, but due to a lack of major advertising and marketing it could be a very longtime before anything as user friendly as Windows appears on PC Worlds shelves.
earthweb.com: Recently, Red Hat announced that it would not pursue the consumer desktop market for the time being. The latest announcement from Red Hat was neither very significant nor should it have much impact on desktop Linux as a whole.
softpedia.com: Mozilla is nearing the finish line for the latest version of its open source browser. Firefox 3.0 was initially planned for launch by the end of 2007, but Mozilla pushed the delivery deadline back all the way to mid 2008 in an effort to soften all the rough edges of the browser. It appears that the trade has paid off.

linuxdevcenter.com: Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (long-term support) launched on April 24th for desktops and servers. There is something for everyone in this version, but the LTS release will have particular appeal to enterprises. As one corporate user said to me, "I have been waiting for the release of Ubuntu 8.04, because we have to install exclusively long term support releases."
junauza.com: Another tip from Free and Open Source gamer extraordinaire SlippJigg encouraged me to try out another action-packed First-person shooter (FPS) game called Warsow last weekend. So what exactly is this game and what makes it interesting?
Serdar Yegulalp: Any talk of Linux brings with it talk of what it will take to get Linux on the desktop in big numbers. Much of the talk in this vein revolves around distribution X versus desktop Y, or something of that nature. The real issue, though, may not be a particular distribution or package model, but the mind-set of the creators.

For many years, there has been a growing concern about people who don’t meet a certain threshold income won’t be able to afford the investment in computers and internet connectivity that makes further learning and development possible. They’ll become trapped by their circumstances. But GNU/Linux, continuously improving hardware, and a community commitment to bringing technology down to cost instead of just up to spec, has led to a new wave of ultra-low-cost computers, starting with the One Laptop Per Child’s XO.

phoronix.com: Two months ago we had looked at the Tyan Tempest i5400XT motherboard, which was Tyan's latest product based upon Intel's newest workstation chipset and had support for dual Intel Xeon quad-core processors. We found the Tempest i5400XT to be a real winner and everything had worked terrific with Linux. Today we are looking at another Tyan workstation motherboard but the tides have turned as we look at their latest AMD dual quad-core solution, the Tyan Thunder n3600M.
earthweb.com: Windows XP, oh how we hate to see you go. Unfortunately for many of those who decide to take the open source plunge into desktop Linux, the shift will require someone who is not afraid to learn to do some things a little differently. And to be honest, it takes a rare breed of user to weather these winds of change.
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: I took a discarded laptop and installed Ubuntu to see if Linux really is “ready for prime time”. I had zero Linux experience and I just learned as I went along. The thing that has impressed me the most is how much faster things ran on the Linux box compared to an identical machine with Windows XP and I started to wonder why?
