itbusiness.ca: This month I had a chance to install and test Fedora 7, the latest community-based release from the folks at Red Hat. Fedora and Novell's OpenSuse are Ubuntu Linux's two chief "competitors," if you care to frame things that way.

However, popular blogging platforms like WordPress and Movable Type can be tough to configure and maintain. If you're not afraid of the command line, take a peek at Bash Blogger.
Free Software Mag: After a year and a half, GPLv3 is finally due this Friday, June 29th. Starting with the January 2006 launch, our focus in FSFE has on raising awareness and informing the free software community.
