blog.eracc.com: The Linux community spoke and foxnews.com listened. I received a polite message late today from Mr. Dave Denis the Director, Product Development at Fox News. Mr. Denis stated that Fox News is now aware of the problem with their Video page and is working with Maven Networks to get it fixed.
downloadsquad.com: In the beginning, we talked a bit about the holy war that wages onward between KDE and GNOME. Some of you aptly pointed out that there is a third desktop environment out there. Like a mouse dodging to avoid the crashing footsteps of the desktop environment giants, Xfce is often included in discussions as an afterthought.
dot.kde.org: Following our interview covering KDE in Japan last week, we now turn to South Korea. Cho Sung Jae tell us about the Korean KDE Users Group, including some of the problems of using KDE with Korean and just how fast their broadband is.
hinesit.com/blog: I think before undertaking the possibility of users, that is, the general public, willingly switching over to Linux the developers of Linux Desktop Applications should take to heart the experiences of the average computer user today.
Also: Will the “12:00 flashers” change Linux?
Steve McIntyre: The first thing I promised to do when I became Debian Project Leader was to initiate a thorough review of Debian's teams. Well, no time like the present! I want to get an accurate, honest assessment of how our central tasks are going and how well (or not!) people are working together in our various teams.
insidebayarea.com: Hans Reiser was found guilty today of first-degree murder. Reiser appeared shocked as the verdict was read, he looked at the crowd and then mumbled to the bailiffs as he was led out of the courtroom.
ubuntulinuxhelp.com: Recently a couple people asked me about trying Linux without actually installing it. Obviously the first thing that came to mind is to try versions via LiveCD. While I was fast to mention and provide the LiveCD for Ubuntu Linux, I was asked if there are other versions of Linux. Hopefully this will provide an initial list.

In this post Freesoftware Magazine interviews Paul Battley, the man who wrote the program that worked around the DRM loophole at the BBC. No GNU/Linux user needs to be told what DRM (aka Trusted Computing, aka Palladium) is and why it is a thoroughly pernicious and Hydra-headed monster that needs to be slain. I hope to make that the subject of a post in the very near future, but in the meantime here is a quick thumbnail sketch of what happened with the BBC’s iPlayer, to bring you up to speed.
ostatic.com/blogs: Many users of open source software point to the fact that their applications and platforms are more secure than proprietary alternatives simply because they aren't such obvious targets for malware distribution. Here, I'll round up 10 of my favorite choices from their list and discuss what these applications can do for you.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: I don’t consider myself anything more than a Linux user. As such, I am not much different from many others. I have been around personal computers since its early days, so in that sense I am a bit of warrior. This is a personal account of how I came to use Linux.
itwire.com: There is an air of disquiet again on Planet GNOME - and once again the reason behind it is the way the site is administered.
blogs.zdnet.com: As an Alameda County jury continues to deliberate the fate of Hans Reiser, the designer of the Reiser File System for Linux who is accused of murdering his wife in late 2006, a key developer on the Reiser4 project acknowledged he is uncertain about its future.
linuxjournal.com: I want to discuss something quite different: whether the open source community should be boycotting Microsoft, and if that is even possible. In part, the trigger for this is Microsoft's recent behaviour during the approval process for its OOXML document format. Now, it seems, Microsoft just can't snuggle up close enough to those cute little open sourcies.
internetling.com: If you’re in a dilemma, just use this post which quickly describes some of the most popular (though not all) desktop environments and window managers. The desktop environments and WMs listed here can easily be downloaded from your distribution’s respective package management system.
linuxworld.com: Operation System (OS) Linux is not well known in Armenia. Often it is used for internet providers and organizations as server. Linux as desktop for workstations is not far in use here in Armenia.
