dvorak.org/blog: Fedora 8 came out today and quite frankly, it sucks. I’m a Fedora user and I run Fedora on about 10 servers right now. But even though I’m a fan I think that it’s time to end the intellectual welfare that all the Linux reviewers give it and raise the bar to the same standards that commercial software is judged by. What is that standard you ask? It’s the standard of “does it work”. My conclusion - no - it doesn’t. Fedora 8 is broken.
the register: The roster of thespos lined up to grace the eleventh celluloid outing of Star Trek now boasts Winona Ryder as a young Spock's mum, the BBC reports.
sfgate: Hans Reiser's wife was a "master of deception" who may still be alive and trying to "screw Hans to the wall" by making him appear guilty of murder, his attorney told an Oakland jury Thursday.
phoronix: With all of our coverage at Phoronix of the different ATI and NVIDIA graphics drivers, if you're new to Linux or just get caught off guard by all of the different open and closed-source drivers, it can be confusing to know which driver is right for you and your needs.
vnunet: Many companies could successfully partake in open source projects without adversely affecting their business, according to open source activist Bruce Perens. Perens told delegates at the Open Source Summit in London that companies need to hold on to their business differentiators in order to remain competitive.
pocketpcmag.com/blogs: As technology proliferates, the entire industry is increasingly struggling to balance ease-of-use and usability on the one hand with power and functionality on the other. Critics of recent Linux distributions allege that attempts to lure users away from other operating systems have led to its watering down to absurd levels.
penguin pete: At about this time in my blogging "career", I'd have to assess that I'm at least one of the top five online pundits who have made a name for themselves by taking the Gimp's side in the Gimp vs. Photoshop debate on the side of Gimp. And not just Gimp, but Gimp Classic, as opposed to Gimp-in-Photoshop's skin. And not just taken sides, but dug a foxhole from which to lob mortars.
apachelog.blogspot: So finally I came round to create a proper screenshot set of Amarok 1.4. Well, the truth is I never intended to create it my own (read: I actually wanted to save my precious splendour for 2.0), but since none managed to create them in (guess) half a year... I kind of did it myself.
lunapark: Fedora 8 is the latest release from the Fedora project and it is just packed with a slew of exciting new features. Some of the more notable features are Pulse Audio (new Linux Sound System), Codec Buddy, Online-Desktop, Compiz and Gnome 2.20.

rumination: It’s hard to imagine a viable open source desktop with long term perspectives without some sort of community. Such a community would consist of persons that are active in developing and maintaining the desktop , of those that use it intensively and offer support, advise and hands on assistance when needed. Today I want to check out the DesktopBSD community and it’s online resources.
raiden's realm: Most people who do backups use expensive backup software and/or hardware to do their backups while others use somewhat clumsy, selective backups through manual methods. Those are alright, but I've got something better.
channelinsider: So, you just delivered that new PC to your customer and gave them a quick tour of what's new and then watched their eyes glaze over with confusion. This leaves just two choices: force your customers to learn and use Vista or offer something else, which doesn't add any costs.The answer lies with the open-source community and more specifically, Linux.
computerworlduk: Microsoft may not have beaten French Linux vendor Mandriva in a large deal to supply Nigerian elementary schools with laptop computers and software after all.
Dana Blankenhorn: Microsoft has extended its cheap software for education plan, aimed at strangling open source in its crib, to Russia. CNews, a Russian IT publication, reports Microsoft is working with Intel and a Russian charity on a plan to double the number of PCs in Russian schools.
iTWire: I've been a full-fledged Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon user for more than a week now, I'm completely off Microsoft Windows and I couldn't be happier. For some reason, however, I keep getting emails and posts urging me to try other supposedly superior Linux distributions for newbies - PCLinuxOS and SimplyMEPIS, among others. Intrigued, I have decided to check this out for myself. Is Ubuntu the best or merely the best backed distro?
Debian Administration: Users of Debian's unstable branch, sid, will have noticed that their systems haven't been updated over the previous few days. This is because one of the core Debian machines is unavailable.
gameinfowire.com: Electronic Arts Inc. announced the company will donate the original SimCity — the blockbuster 1989 game credited with giving rise to the city-building game genre — to each computer in the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative.
yalb: Imagine a world where you were told how to think, feel, and act. You were told what to buy...told what not to buy. We’re not as far off as you may imagine.

linux.com: Linux Mint is a derivative distribution of Ubuntu. Its purpose, according to its Web site, "is to produce an elegant, up-to-date, and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution." Unfortunately, it falls short in at least one of those areas, and suffers from several other disappointing shortcomings
