linuxplanet.com: It's not every day you see the launch of a brand new Linux distribution, so when I heard that Pyrolinux 1.0 was released over Christmas, I thought I'd take a look. Pyrolinux is based on Linux Mint, which is itself a modified version of Ubuntu, so I suppose the term "new distribution" only loosely applies here.
garbledzombie.wordpress: PCLinuxOS is a Mandriva fork that seemingly shot up in distrowatch’s top distros list. I was more than a tad surprised at this, seeing a world where nobody ever mentioned PCLinuxOS as much as say, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or OpenSUSE. Intrigued, I read more about this distro and decided to give it a shot.
Matt Asay: I've spent the last two weeks on the road, meeting with customers and prospects. It has been enlightening, to say the least. One primary theme has emerged: the Web 2.0 revolution is over. The web has already won. Its chief weapon? Open source.
gigaom.com: As Christian Einfeldt of Digital Tipping Point recently noted, when Amazon published its Christmas wish lists, Linux devices figured prominently. And it seems like Linux is indeed all around us.
the inquirer: AN ONLINE COMPUTER shop is offering customers a five per cent discount if they order using the Firefox browser.
cmswire.com: Let’s get right to it: considering the popularity of open source applications and utilities, why hasn’t the open source flagship - the Linux operating system - caught on with mainstream PC users?
blogs.zdnet: Bill Gates’ announcement he will no longer do CES keynotes overshadowed anything else he said, and for good reason. So open source advocates should not be cheering as he exits stage right, to pursue his new career as a philanthropist and humanitarian. Because, all too often, that’s what we do.

thevarguy.com: Apple server fans and open source fanatics are about to engage in a group hug, The VAR Guy has learned. It will soon be easier to run Mac OS X and Linux side-by-side on Apple servers. How will this magic occur?
blog of helios: I am past the honeymoon stage as a Linux User. I've come to accept that I've seen the best it has to offer. I've settled for a future of known habits and predictable but reliable behavior. Until yesterday morning. That's when I first booted into Ultimate Ubuntu.
blogs.sun.com/simons: My father has agreed to try Ubuntu as his home desktop operating environment, replacing Windows XP. And because I promised to document the experience, here is what happened yesterday when I delivered the system.
wired blog: Spotted at Amiga's Pepcom booth, the GP2X handheld, from Korea's Gamepark holdings, made for a whiplash double-take: the best computer of the 1980s emulated on a portable?
ruminations: PCLinuxOS comes with a decent set of basic applications. OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird and Firefox are all there, GIMP for graphics, K3b for burning your cd/dvd’s, Amarok and MPlayer in the multimedia department. Synaptic is the tool to extend the range of applications and graphical environments.
linux.com: Apparently, the only thing that stopped developers from creating useful OpenOffice.org extensions was the lack of a place to publish them. With the launch of the OpenOffice.org Extension Repository, the number of extensions listed there has shot up, and there are no signs of a slowdown.
linuxhelp.blogspot: A couple of years back, Red Hat decided to demarcate its Linux offering into two separate entities namely the free as in beer and Free as in freedom Fedora and its paid version but still Free as in freedom offering namely Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The improvements that are made in Fedora, after they go through a period of severe whetting are eventually incorporated into Red Hat enterprise offering or so it seems.

arstechnica.com: In a recent article, renowned virtual reality guru Jaron Lanier criticizes the community-driven software development process of the open-source movement, asserting that the model isn't conducive to radical innovation.
