Songbird today can sing a pretty sweet tune, but to push its way into the big leagues, it needs to get over its own interface.

Paul Murphy: When you ask google for innovations in Linux what you get is rather disappointing - on the first page there’s somebody’s rather uninformed attack on Linux as lacking innovation, some PR bumbf, and five separate references to a joint IBM/Red Hat press release entitled “IBM, Red Hat Announce New Development Innovations in Linux Kernels”.
Linux Today: The first story wasn't even about Linux; it was about the release of Apache 1.3.2. Dave Whitinger posted that story at this time in the early morning of September 28, 1998 (Eastern time).

Motho ke motho ka botho: I have to admit my enthusiasm for the Gutsy release is lukewarm. Looking over the list of features, very few of them seem useful to me. Naturally, that’s going to differ from person to person and machine to machine, but from my perspective, not much is appealing.
xubuntu.wordpress: Today the xubuntu-devel mailinglist received this message from Mario Limonciello from Mythbuntu: "I’m leading the Mythbuntu effort, and for our next alpha we are switching over to Xfce for our base."

linuxworld: Dynamic kernel tracing remains high on the wishlists presented by many Linux users. While much work has been done to create a powerful tracing capability, very little of that work has found its way into the mainline. The recent posting of one small piece of infrastructure may help to change that situation, though.

iTWire: Recently I've been devoting some space to a discussion of Dell's efforts to sell Linux on certain PCs and laptops among its range of models. There's also been discussion of why this effort appears to be somewhat half-hearted.

Greg K-H: Way back in January, I announced a program to write Linux drivers for companies for free. When I did that, I never expected the response to be as large as it was.
jem report: A badly researched Yahoo News piece recently characterized open source developers' reluctance to adopt the new GNU General Public License version 3 as creating "a rift in the open source community between idealists who believe all software should be free of charge and free to use, and pragmatists who want to see open source software make further inroads into commercial use." There are so many things wrong in that statement that I hardly know where to begin.
