iTWire: Well, I’ve been hornswaggled. My lovely brand-new ASUS Eee from Myer may have been a shop-soiled demo model. It wasn’t a virgin system but one that had played the field with many. Never worry: here’s how to take the ASUS Eee back to the complete factory image at any time, along with how to update the apps and Xandros Linux distro that it uses.
raiden's realm: Pardus Linux is a distribution built from scratch rather than from any one particular existing distribution. Born in 2005 through funding and development provided by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey, it's grown quickly and become a distribution worth taking a good long look at.

beranger: More than one year ago, I reviewed UHU-Linux 2.0, and I very much liked it. Now, when UHU-Linux 2.1 is about to be released (I don't understand Hungarian, so I can't read their forums, but I suspect they want to release before Christmas), I tested UHU-Linux 2.1 RC2 (released on 12/16), downloaded from here: uhu-linux-2.1-rc2-dvd.iso.
monroe.nu: So I've decided to rename Codeine/Video Player to Dragon Player. Its named in honor of KDE's mascot Konqui of course. I've also gone ahead and made a release, Dragon Player 2.0 Alpha 1.

Gyn Moody: Choice is an important element of free software, so it's perhaps no surprise that even at the level of the desktop environment there is more than one offering. But the main alternatives – KDE and GNOME – represent more than just a way of placing icons on a screen. Nowhere is that more evident than in their respective views on Microsoft's OOXML document standard, which are very far apart – perhaps dangerously so.
matt hartley: I am writing this piece in hopes of sharing what each desktop offering has to provide and which of these options makes the most sense for your business.
developer.mozilla.org: Firefox 3 Beta 2 is now available for download. This is the tenth developer milestone focused on testing the core functionality provided by many new features and changes to the platform scheduled for Firefox 3.
direct2dell.com: Today, we're adding Ubuntu 7.10 (a.k.a Gutsy Gibbon) to the Dell Consumer Linux line-up for customers in the United States. It will also be available on the Inspiron 530 in England, France, and Germany later this week.
Bruce Byfield: The average user probably hasn't even heard of Open Document Format (ODF) or Microsoft Office Open XML (OOXML). With both formats candidates for being the ISO standard that becomes the norm for interoperability between office suites, emotions were already running high. However, this issue has been sidetracked by a debate about whether the GNOME Foundation has betrayed or assisted the community by being involved with the development of OOXML at all.
Marcel Gagné: What distribution are you loading up today, François? Are you having trouble finding something you like? You like them all but you just can't choose, eh? Well, mon ami.
apcmag.com: Ten parts ago we embarked on this journey to see just how well Linux, and specifically Ubuntu, would handle being the sole operating system on my system and if it would handle everything I needed to do from work to play, day to day.
wired: A police officer testified in the Hans Reiser murder trial Tuesday he pulled over the defendant for a traffic violation nine days after the Linux programmer's wife went missing and noticed no signs the vehicle was used to dispose of a body.
oreillynet.com: Perl 1 was released to the public by Larry Wall 20 years ago today. To celebrate, Perl5Porters have released Perl5.10, the latest stable version of Perl 5. Happy Birthday Perl!
fanaticattack.com: There will be a BRM (Ballot resolution meeting) in Geneva on 25-29 February 2008 to answer the comments by National Standard Boards on OOXML and to resolve issues.
linux-watch: Even before I picked up Unix, I worked on networks. While networking has gotten simpler, it's almost all TCP/IP now instead of Arcnet, Token-Ring and a half dozen dusty wiring and protocol schemes. The services that use networking have gotten ever more powerful and more complicated. That's why a book like Carla Schroder's Linux Networking Cookbook is so valuable.
laptopmag.com: If you’ve been curious about Linux but fearful of installing the open-source OS on a laptop, then Ubuntu 7.10 will eliminate all excuses. This graphical and very friendly version of the OS is free, looks and plays very much like Mac/Windows, and runs a surprisingly vast array of programs from the open-source community.

Matt Asay: I really liked this InformationWeek article with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu. I liked it in part because I think Mark is an exceptional person. But I also liked it for its insight into why Ubuntu has done so well.
Dana Blankenhorn: Desktop Linux became the most popular topic in open source during 2007, as evidenced by the our August post asking if Ubuntu had clinched the desktop Linux market.
Also: For 2008 expect more Linux applications
