Linux-Watch: Once upon a time, the only thing Linux needed was great coders. That was a long time ago. Today, Linux needs excellent lawyers as well to navigate the 21st century's increasingly lawsuit-happy IT world. To address that concern, the LF (Linux Foundation) has added two top attorneys to its ranks.
LinuxInsider: Zonbu's overall goal is to vastly simplify the process of buying and using a computer. The idea is to make it not only more affordable but also much less of a hassle and much more energy efficient. However, there's a catch -- several catches, in fact. Some have to do with the machine's design and pricing, and others with its performance.

heise online: Willy Tarreau, maintainer of the 2.4 kernel series, wants to continue to oversee the Linux version 2.6.20 a bit longer than the maintainers of the stable kernel series would normally have done.
Linux.com: The Sabayon Linux live DVD distribution, based on the unstable branch of Gentoo Linux, has been in development for several years and caters to a wide variety of users. Having started out with a beautiful but mainstream appearance, it now boasts one of the most unique looks in Linux and more usability options than most other distros.
FreeSoftware Mag: We know all about how powerful the GNU/Linux terminal is. However, it’s a pain to have to fire up a terminal emulator like Konsole or gnome-terminal, wait for a few seconds for it load, and then have to keep Alt-Tabbing to it. Wouldn’t it be easier to just have a terminal that automatically hides and shows itself at click of a button? Today, I’m going to look at three different terminal emulators that do just that.
Linux Online: Everyone is focusing on the death sentence that was handed to SCO last Friday. But that was really a mere formality. SCO has been dead for quite some time. Such is the fate of those who live by litigation and not by making good products.
linux.com: The Ubuntu community is seeking to get approved Local Community (LoCo) teams in all 50 states in the US by the end of this year, and it's making impressive progress.
itmanagement: Every few months, a pundit asks, "Is Linux ready for the desktop?" The implication, of course, is that it hasn't been -- at least, not until very recently. Based on a wide array of criteria, an in-depth look reveals that (like a growing number of GNU/Linux distributions) Fedora 7 takes second place to nothing -- not even Windows Vista.
techpersona: I have been able to be quiet and keep my opinions to myself but after the announcement of Lenovo offering ThinkPads with Novell’s SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) installed on it, I thought that it was time for me to give my opinion on it.
the register: The Free Software Foundation (FSF) mounted its protests against "corruption" of the BBC by Microsoft in London and Manchester this morning. As expected, nobody from BBC management or the BBC Trust came out to speak to the protesters.
MaximumPC: Newcomers to Linux often complain about the relative difficulty of finding and installing programs through their distro’s packaging system. If you’re among the ranks of rankled newbs running a Debian-based distro like Ubuntu, check out Automatix2.
dana blankenhorn: A few days ago I wrote a piece about how Linus Torvalds wants only to be a programmer, and applauded him for that. It drew some angry response. The fact is, however, that Linus Torvalds is not the CEO of Linux.
linux.com: Deciding whether a particular computer is a good candidate for installing GNU/Linux can involve a nightmare of details about hardware compatibility. Nor is assembling a custom computer on which to run GNU/Linux any easier. In both cases, you need to evaluate video cards, sound cards, printers, scanners, digital camera, wireless cards, and mobile devices for compatibility with the operating system. Fortunately, help is available.
ZDNet: According to Ditesh Kumar, OSS developer evangelist for Malaysia's Free and Open Source (FOSS) Foundation, OSS is being widely adopted across all the major verticals including public, technical, educational, financial and services sectors, and even within small and midsize enterprises (SMEs).
beranger: "Closed Errata", but living bug. After all, package management is the worst managed department in Linux, no matter what distro you consider. CLOSED? Really?! Then how come the duplicate bug #251842: Dependency not installed was filed on 2007-08-12?
blogs.ittoolbox.com: For me personally it doesn't change a single thing. This Novell vs SCO vs IBM battle was just all a bunch of background noise for me. I suspect that for many other open source advocates it was just background noise for them too. Why?
Mark Shuttleworth: It’s too early to say for certain, but there are very encouraging signs that the world’s standards bodies will vote in favour of a single unified ISO (”International Standards Organisation”) document format standard.
CUPS 1.3.0 is the first stable feature release in the 1.3.x series and includes over 30 new features and changes since CUPS 1.2.12, including Kerberos authentication, DNS-SD/Bonjour/Zeroconf support, improved on-line help, and localized printer drivers. This is also the first release since being acquired by Apple.
