stompbox.typepad: Over the past few years, like lots of Linux users, I have become increasingly frustrated with the performance of Firefox in Linux. Though I haven't been as vocal as others of the state of Firefox, it was clear that most of us were just sick and tired of Firefox being a "good Windows browser that happened to run in Linux."
LWN: The OpenDocument Foundation was formed in 2005, with the mission "to provide a conduit for funding and support for individual contributors to participate in ODF development" at the standards body OASIS. So, eyebrows were naturally raised when Sam Hiser, wrote on October 16 that it was no longer supporting ODF:
iTWire: Last night I downloaded the latest beta release from Mozilla, Firefox 3 Beta 1, meaning to just have a look-see so that I could pen a few impressions. Since then, I haven't bothered to load up Firefox 2 because, even though it's a pre-production test version, Firebox 3 Beta 1 is a mighty fine browser.
linux.com: Gogh is an extremely lightweight drawing program designed for pressure-sensitive devices. Despite its simplicity, it packs in a lot of features and a lot of fun.
phoronix: Minutes after the release of the RadeonHD v0.0.3 driver, the initial-randr branch for x86-video-radeonhd was merged into master. What this means is that you no longer need to checkout this separate branch.
LinuxToday: There have been a couple of thought-provoking columns that have been published recently that I wanted to add my own two cents. The first column is the most recently published: my colleague Bruce Byfield's piece "It's Time to Get Over Microsoft" that ran over on Datamation. The other article I wanted to mention was the Linux Magazine opinion piece "Is 2008 the Year of the Linux Desktop?", written by my friend and co-author Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier.
kmandla.wordpress: I don’t follow the PCLinuxOS crowd. So I’ve procrastinated in trying out the Fluxbox version of PCLinuxOS. I have to admit that it’s very attractive.
drupal.org: With another month of active beta testing, our code is growing more stable by the day. Since Drupal 6 beta 2 was released, we have committed over 180 fixes to the Drupal 6.x code, so we are proud to announce the release of the third beta version of Drupal 6.x for your testing.
Serdar Yegulalp: Yes, I know the headline sounds like the fodder for a joke: "Run IE on Linux? Why would you want to?" But there are circumstances where it's unavoidable -- compatibility testing, or accessing IE-only sites without dual-booting -- and in the last few weeks I've come across a couple of interesting approaches to this issue.
iTWire: A new version of Firefox containing a fix for a security vulnerability is expected next week. Firefox 184.108.40.206 addresses a pair of vulnerabilities in the browser's handling of Java Archive (jar) URIs.
it-director.com/blogs: Here's a bit more information about my chosen Linux configuration. ...or Why I've replaced Vista with Linux Part 2.
beranger: I am used with a very quick way to find things about packages on a few distros, on the spot, using a web browser. Unfortunately, unlike in the case of Debian and Ubuntu, if you don't know the exact name of the package, you're lost.
itwire.com: Today I've finished installations of two very different operating systems, Vista and Kubuntu. Both are essentially trying to accomplish the same thing, which is to provide desktop users a satisfying and relatively seemless desktop computing experience. Both succeed to a certain degree and both fail in some important areas. The question is why?
blogs.the451group: Say what you want about GPLv3, but the update to the most popular open source software license continues to close loopholes that have been used to avoid sharing source code, patent protection and other freedoms that the authors intended.
phoronix: For the past two months, the AMD release train has been running full speed ahead as they introduced their new driver code-base and last month had dropped in the AIGLX support. However, this month the AMD train has taken an intermediate stop as this closed-source driver embarks on its next journey. As always, we have all of the details for you on this month's ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux display driver release.

tuxvaio.blogspot: Released in the UK on 12 November 2007, I purchased an ASUS Pc 701 on the 14th . I bought it purely on the strength that it came with a Linux OS (Operating System) pre-installed and was so small it weighed a kilogram, WiFi ready and all for £219.
/home/liquidat: Two minor issues of the fedoraproject web pages and services have been fixed recently: the repoview is back again, and the build service search is now case-insensitive. In the meantime the package database shapes up to a central place for all package related tasks.
techrepublic: I have scoured the Internet for holiday gifts that are geeky with an open source, stick-it-to-the-man slant. Now these are just my random, probably unsuitable selections, but you feel free to add your own ideas.
raiden's realm: The primary reason for writing this is to help new users develop an understanding of the Linux file system commands. Not all of them, just some of the more common ones. Let's look at what they do and why I would need to use them, what not to do, what each thing means and what it's for.
