it-director.com/blogs: This decision was a long time coming but I think it is the right thing to do right now: I have reformatted the hard drive on my laptop and replaced Vista with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux as the main operating system. I did this for a number of reasons: it's probably worth going through them one by one.
Welcome to another edition of Compiz Fusion Community News. In this edition, I will be covering numerous bug fixes that have been made to Compiz and Fusion as well as covering some new features and plugins that just came in. Among those being atlantis2, fireflies, smackpad, Autumn, cubedbus and filedebug.
linux insider: The holidays are coming, and there's no better time of year to consider buying a computer for yourself or as a gift. It is also a good time to consider a PC loaded with Linux. What's that you say? Run Linux instead of Microsoft's Vista? Does anybody really do that?
extremetech: Microsoft's rivalry with Google heated up considerably this past year when rumors surfaced that Google might release its own operating system to compete with Windows. Has Google finally jumped into the fray with its own OS?
junauza.blogspot: Linux is losing popularity. That is according to Google Trends, a tool from Google Labs that shows the most popularly searched terms from the beginning of 2004 to now. The graph below shows a downward curve.

iTWire: As my colleague Sam Varghese has written, after nearly two weeks of flawless operation, my first Ubuntu Linux installation unexpectedly became unstable, crashed and was unable to be booted. Puzzled that an OS with the reputed stability of Ubuntu could behave like this, I searched forums and user groups for an explanation.
Serdar Yegulalp: After my first post about creating my own Linux distribution as a learning project, I received a lot of extremely positive letters from readers, many of whom had suggestions about particular distributions to use as the core for the project. Here's some of what they had to say.
blogbeebe: I've had a Sapphire ATI X1950 Pro video card for over 30 days now, and it's crossed my mind more than once to send it back to Newegg and get an nVidia replacement.

beranger: For a first grumble, I noticed that the battery stopped charging, and that it says "97%". Then, by reading the details, I got the following dilemma: if the battery is only charged at 97% (43.3 Wh instead of 44.4 Wh), then how can it say the capacity is 100%?!
linux.com: Rather than choose her current career, it almost seems as if Cathy Malmrose's career chose her. Malmrose is CEO of ZaReason, an OEM that manufactures and sells desktop and notebook systems with Ubuntu.
