freesoftwaremagazine.com: Sadly, there’s nothing genuinely new about this story, but a recent discussion on the Fedora Games mailing list demonstrates the sort of chilling effect on innovation and impoverishment of the intellectual commons that occurs today because of a broken, outmoded US patent system and its misapplication to software. I’m at a loss for words to express how absurd these “patents” are.
reddevil62-techhead: We've all been there. The shiny new PC is loaded with the latest Linux distribution. The desktop has been tweaked, system updates sorted, data imported and packages downloaded.

webware.com: After making noise with the reintroduction of its Firefox add-ons directory last year, Mozilla is taking a step closer to integrating it with the upcoming beta of Firefox 3, which is set to go out to beta testers next week.
redmonk.com: There must be something going around, something in the water. That was how one commenter put it to me this week. How else to explain the rash of open source acquisitions? From MySQL to Covalent to Trolltech, the appetite for open source vendors appears to be insatiable.
iTWire: For Jonathan Oxer, the president of Linux Australia, today, the final day of the 2008 Australian national Linux conference is a day of fulfilment and also some sadness.

Linux Planet: How do you produce a major update of a popular desktop for GNU/Linux? Following the January 11 release of KDE 4.0, I talked with Wade Olson, the press contact for KDE in North America, and a member of KDE e.V., the German non-profit organization that is the financial and legal arm of the project. Olson talked about the goals of the release, its highlights, what was left out, and where development of KDE is going next.

My big question is: what next?

linuxdevices.com: Motorola has responded to the news earlier this week that rival Nokia plans to purchase Trolltech, long-time supplier of the graphical development framework used in Motorola's Linux phones. In a nutshell, the response boils down to, "We were over Qt, anyway."
linux.com: Is there anyone who doesn't collect something? I, for instance, have a sizable collection of books. Remembering who gave me which ones, and keeping track of ones I've currently lent to friends, is a nightmarish chore. Happily, the Tellico collection manager can catalog all sorts of collections, including books, movies, games, cards, coins, comic books, and even wine.
Matt Asay: Ubuntu is making inroads at IBM, with IBM making a significant commitment to lift Ubuntu out of its alleged "community" status to true enterprise status. (It's already enterprise-class, but perception lags technology.) IBM's reason for its Ubuntu move? Customer demand.
kernelTRAP: As you probably know there is a trend in enterprise computing towards networked storage. This is illustrated by the emergence during the past few years of standards like SRP (SCSI RDMA Protocol), iSCSI (Internet SCSI) and iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA)," began Bart Van Assche, proposing that SCST be merged into the mainline kernel.
