polishlinux: Recently I’ve laid my hands on the new IBM’s child — Lotus Symphony (beta version). It is an office suite based on OpenOffice.org. Lotus Symphony includes text editor, spreadsheet and presentation tool. I’ve, decided to try this new IBM wonder.
LWN: While OpenOffice.org's Impress is a reasonable presentation program, it lacks one often-requested feature: the provision of a separate screen for the presenter. So it is encouraging that the OOo developers have just announced that this feature is now in development.
François Bancilhon: We recently closed a deal with the Nigerian Government. Maybe you heard about it, Steve. They were looking for an affordable hardware+software solution for their schools. The initial batch was 17,000 machines. Then your people entered the game and the deal got more competitive.
penguin pete: This being Halloween, it seems appropriate to talk about fear. Why don't more desktop users adapt to free computing? THE FEAR. The command line. Scary stuff, for some.
linuxtechdaily: When Mandriva 2008 came out, I decided to stick with it, day in and day out and see how I felt. This isn’t a review, just a look at my experience with it. For those wanting a review, I’ll imitate one in one paragraph!
linux.com: In public health, harm reduction is a practice that, rather than trying to eradicate potentially dangerous choices like prostitution, tries to minimize their effects. Often, the practice involves a limited condoning of the practice, such as safe injection sites for addicts. Harm reduction is the path that Fedora 8 has chosen on the issue of MP3 and other non-free codecs in the form of Codec Buddy.
Don't be a "Putzbuntu!"

zdnet blogs: In the last week of October 1998, a confidential Microsoft memo detailing their strategy against Linux and Open source was leaked to Eric S. Raymond, who annotated it and posted it on the web. This became known as the first Halloween Document. Between 1998 and 2004 Eric posted 10 other Halloween Documents. Now it’s 2007...
matt asay: I think Miguel de Icaza is an exceptional developer and effective community leader. I can't help but wonder why he's squandering his talents on writing largely irrelevant code (Mono, Moonlight) that appeals to himself, Novell, Microsoft, and no one else.
c|net blog: On Thursday, WalMart begins selling the Everex Green gPC TC2502, a $198, low-powered, Linux-based PC that's designed primarily for running Web 2.0 apps.
gaming.hexus.net: Sometimes, doing what you're told or permitted to do isn't enough. For decades, the geeks of the world have looked at common conventional items of consumer electronics, and wondered "could I do something else with this?"
raiden's realm: NimbleX is a Linux distribution built on the idea that "fast is best". It comes complete with a lot of great tools to help you do a wide variety of tasks. Even though it's setup as a desktop distribution, the uses for NimbleX are quite extensive.
linuxtoday blog: I thought I would give you ten reasons why you shouldn't use Ubuntu so when your Ubuntu-loving friends tell you about it you can be armed with some reasons why you would rather use Windows.
