linuxjournal.com: Let's imagine for a moment that the world was slightly different and Windows did not come pre-installed on most computers. You get your shiny new computer and since you don't know nuttin about this Linux stuff you go and buy a copy of Windows XP (to upgrade to an older more familiar experience).
abhay-techzone.blogspot: For the month of December 2007, the web statistics of Distrowatch show an interesting pattern.

OSWeekly: While this did not affect me personally, it seems that ipv6 issues are at it again.

So, how did this slip through?

itmanagement.earthweb: There is, to be sure, no lack of “top software” lists in the open source world (or in software in general). The Internet is drowning in such lists. But these compendiums, however helpful, are typically created by tech journalists. What about the top picks of actual community leaders?
LinuxPlanet: Pardus is a Linux distribution developed by the Turkish National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptography. I'd never seen it before this week and only heard the name briefly in passing, so I had no idea what to expect. I spent a few days with Pardus and here's how I got on.
