johnlpreston.co.uk: Why more people don’t use Linux? It’s a pain to get set up correctly. For example, I was trying to show off Kubuntu to some friends last Tuesday, and because Kubuntu doesn’t contain any proprietary software, I couldn’t play MP3s or video.
talesoftech.blogspot: I find I'm recently getting inquiries from various friends and business associates who say they want to try Linux. So I thought I'll post about it here. So far I've used three Linux distributions (or distros): Xandros, Ubuntu and Gentoo.
sathyaphoenix.wordpress: There’s one big factor in why Linux isn’t popular on the desktop. Linux is free. I know this sounds like complete dog’s bollocks, but hear me out before judging my sanity.
phoronix.com: Back during CES 2008 we reported that NVIDIA may be plotting an open-source strategy. While NVIDIA has yet to publicize their intentions, something does definitely appear to be going on within their Santa Clara offices.
Matt Asay: I once took Jeremy Zawodny, technical director at Yahoo!, to task for not contributing enough back to open source. Today, Zawodny made it clear that openness and open source are in Yahoo!'s DNA.
linuxowns.wordpress: A live cd is an operating system and the programs on it you can boot from the cd/dvd drive.

alexandersarchive.wordpress: Here are some of the operating systems FireFox has been ported to. Xandros Linux has the most realistic version of the Windows taskbar, while Mandrake has that half transparent Start Menu like Vista. Funny how htese different Linux distros saw fit to borrow the Windows GUI pieces that never found their way into Mac OS X.
blog.anamazingmind.com: We tell people we use Linux because it's secure. Or because it's free, because it's customizable, because it's free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support... But all of that is just marketing bull. They wouldn't understand the real reason.
queynt.wordpress: It takes a lot of time to get things to work - Ever tried setting up WPA wireless on linux? It’s a pain in the neck. Linux is unfriendly to new technologies. You may expect a lot of your blings to plug and play, but expectation is generally different from reality.
wire.dattitu.de: Weekly round of quickies: Initial KDE4 port of the opensuse-updater started and available for testers and he new KDE 4.1 weekly snapshot was finally released yesterday.

penguinpetes.com: It is perhaps a sign of advancement of Linux as a platform that people are starting to seriously ask the question: "Where are the Linux gamers?" Just recently, I've seen Mad Penguin ask it, followed by this indie-game developer's blog. The question also got batted around on Slashdot.
thevarguy.com: When the next version of Ubuntu Linux ships in April, there’s a reasonable chance that server vendors could start jumping on the Ubuntu bandwagon by May or so. Here’s the scoop.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: M6-IT, a Community Interest Community in the UK, are part way through a project to equip socially excluded families with computers running Xubuntu. I was recently able to interview Richard Rothwell of M6-IT about this project and its progress.
linuxtoday.com: I am not sure what to make of the pull-out of the Everex GPC machines from Wal-Mart's brick-and-mortar shelves announced this week. Initially, I was bummed. But as the week progressed, I kept wondering if this was actually a good thing. Did Linux really belong on the shelves of Wal-Mart now? Or was it too soon?
Marcel Gagné: Nothing says high performance like a good race. Got Linux? Got a good accelerated video card as well? Then get yourself these great racing games, get behind the wheel, and drive!
desktoplinux.com: "Windows XP Will Fill Two-Thirds of Asustek Eee PCs." OK, I know almost none of you are journalists, but what's wrong with that headline? That's right. Linux will be running on a third of Asustek's Eee PCs.
phoronix.com: Over the past couple of quarters it's definitely been an unpleasant time for the Linux commercial gaming scene, but this week there is good news coming out of Finland and that is two games -- both relatively new to the marketplace -- being ported to Linux.
