ubuntu.com: As we close in on the release of Ubuntu 7.10, codenamed Gutsy Gibbon during the development cycle, we thought we would tell you a little bit about some of the new features and improvements that make the release exciting. So over the next ten days, we will talk about one rocking feature each day until the 18th of October, when Ubuntu 7.10 goes live.

groklaw: "People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation to compensate us," Ballmer said at a company event discussing online services in the UK last week. A video report of Ballmer's speech was posted online over the weekend.
OSWeekly: Just when I was sure that I had seen just about every sort of means of distributing open source software, the concept of the Freedom Toaster rolled into my inbox. Based on the idea that open source software should be made readily available to those in need, the distribution center/kiosks from Mark Shuttleworth and the Freedom Toaster team are here with another innovative product in the market.
CBR: Given the importance of the Microsoft Windows platform in global IT, perhaps it is time for Windows to be opened up and made open source. Indeed, while some may consider such a move unthinkable, a number of benefits could be had from it, for both Microsoft and the global IT world.
the inquirer: THERE is no chance of a movie being made of Halo, despite it being the most successful game classic since Space Invaders.
This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 10.3 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.

raiden's realm: What if we lived in a world where all hardware was open source, including CPU’s, memory, motherboards, and all peripherals? Would it be a better world, or would it be a rolling nightmare, plagued with problems, and rampant with show stopping bugs that would bring the world to a grinding halt?
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Image support in Parley, and support for formulas in the note feature of the Step physics simulation package. blinKen changes capitalisation to Blinken for the KDE 4.0 release. Theme work across kdegames, with better collision detection in Kolf. More XMP integration work in Digikam.
techiemoe.com: Linux Mint is (if you'll pardon the pun) a fresh idea: take a decently popular and stable distribution, and add all the stuff that said distribution's maintainers refuse to add even though their users want it. The time for excuses is over for the Linux desktop.
go2linux.org: Sabayon is an Italian Linux that is user oriented, and it is based on Gentoo. Ok the first thing you will see when start installing Sabayon is Anaconda, as I am a fan of Fedora, this was great for me, as Anaconda is a great installer.

Carla Schroder: The glamorous new kids in the Linux security parade are SELinux, AppArmor, and all manner of virtualization technologies. But don't overlook the reliable, helpful old-timer Bastille Linux.
sunnytalkstech.blogspot: For the last 10+ yrs, I have spent quite a lot of my PC experience on SuSE beginning with v4.2. openSuse 10.3 was released 4th Oct, 2007. A lot has improved over the years and I've seen how SuSE has improved with every new version.
Alexander Wolfe: It's always been my impression that, appearances to the contrary, Linux aficionados are no different than the rest of us. So I wasn't surprised when I saw a post on the Ubuntu Women forum, from a guy, who's wondering if there are "any good places online to meet like-minded free software women."
iTWire: These days when you download a Linux distribution and burn it to CD, you would expect that it would not take too much of an effort to have a look at it. Unless, of course, it's one of three distributions which are aimed at so-called geeks - Gentoo, Debian and Slackware.

Rudd-O: Winds of change are sweeping through the software industry. Today, it’s no longer fashionable to decry free software types as it was just a few years ago — the cool kids are all “leveraging” and reaching out to free software communities. But not everyone’s doing it right, so let’s explore how to start a positive relationship with free software.
Fluxbox.net: A new stable release! Finally after almost four and a half years with 0.9.x release we got to 1.0.0! This release includes a lot of bugfixes, new styles, updated language support, better shaped corners and much more.
