OSWeekly: It's been a wild ride, but I have definitely not regretted my choice to make Ubuntu a major part of my life. As a full-time user, I have been charged by Windows and Linux user alike for not following their own lemming-like mindsets. And this has bothered me for some time now.
linux.com: At the large school in Mexico where I'm employed as a system manager, I proposed (and got) a Linux server to replace an old Windows 2000 file server and domain controller for the alumni. I then was faced with the task of adding 3,000 users to this new CentOS 5 server. I wasn't about to add thousands of users and their passwords one by one.

phoronix: On the X.Org mailing list, Alan Coopersmith had raised concerns over the release criteria for X11 and how with recent releases (namely X.Org 7.3), the de facto standard for making a release was far from being met.
internetnews.com: A free Unix-like OS need not be feared as something that isn't accessible or usable on a desktop. At least that's the hope with the latest release of PC-BSD version 1.4.
tectonic: The Ubuntu Linux team is planning to release Gutsy Gibbon (7.10), the latest version of its OS tomorrow. Progress on the latest release looks promising.

kmandla.wordpress.com: When the final bell tolls and Microsoft is forced to confront the Linux tidal wave (instead of playing its current game of misinformation and attrition) there will be one Achilles heel that the Redmond contingent can take advantage of: Choice.
Linux Today: Printer, camera, scanner--all detected and configured in less than 2 minutes. PCLinuxOS has knocked my socks off!
computerworld: After the International Organization for Standardization voted to reject Microsoft's Office Open XML document format as a standard, the detailed results from ISO member countries give us a lot of material to analyze.
Matt Hartley: This not really public yet, but for those of you savvy enough to subscribed to Linux Fanatics, this affects you. In the past, I have talked about finding a vendor that will support a specific RaLink chipset with consistent performance and full WPA out of the box. Today, this has happened.
gartnerwebdev.com: Richard Stallman, the founder of the Free Software Foundation and The GNU Project, has had a consistent message about freedom for computer users for over 23 years. His first experiences with computers predate his work with the MIT AI Lab, which began in 1972.
Frederik's Blog: In less than two weeks time, six months after the great Mandriva 2007.1 Spring release, Mandriva 2008.0 will be ready and published. There were great ideas at the start of the development phase, and in in those six months that have passed, Mandriva has always been one of the most active projects on CIA.vc. This gives much hope for lots of improvements, so let's take a look at what can be expected from Mandriva 2008.0.
Serdar Yegulalp: One of the adages about Linux that gets passed around a lot goes something like, "It's a great system, but you really have to know what you're doing.” The other day, I got a firsthand example of that -- I got bitten by a bug in a package that's readily available in Ubuntu's software repository.
movingtofreedom.org: When I switched to using Mozilla Thunderbird on Ubuntu GNU/Linux, it was a very easy switch, but I missed my little tray notifier. So I was pleased recently to find the Mozilla New Mail Icon extension, or, “Biff”.
nosrednaekim.wordpress: After about 5 minutes of searching I found this card, a TRENDnet TEW-443. Reading the reviews, I realized I needn’t have bothered with the ubuntu compatibility page. Over half of the reviews were from people with Linux who had bought it because it was Linux compatible.
iTWire: At the 58th International Aeronautical Congress (IAC-2007), being held from September 24-28, 2007, NASA administrator Michael Griffin says “Our long-term game-plan is to put man on Mars by 2037”

zdnet blogs: It may well be true that desktop Linux is going nowhere fast in the U.S. Microsoft’s willingness to let users back-off upgrades and stick with XP may have stopped the potential rot in its market share. But it is taking enormous effort for Microsoft to hold its server market share against Linux’ inroads in the enterprise.
