computerworlduk blogs: A little while back, the creator of the Drupal open source web collaboration and publishing platform, Dries Buytaert, announced that he was setting up a company alongside the project. Now that company has just got a lot of dosh:
The Register: Microsoft is facing growing criticism of its bid to have Office Open XML (OOXML) accepted as an international standard ahead of a crucial vote by the ISO scheduled for February.

seopher: 2007 was touted as 'the year for Linux' and indeed the first quarter looked promising but things never really took off. Why is that?

These tests are focused upon OpenGL gaming, encoding, disk, and memory performance.

junauza.blogspot: I have tried and tested almost all major Linux distros but not yet Mandriva. Fortunately, I had a not-so-busy weekend so I finally had my hands on Mandriva 2008.
ITtoolbox blogs: One of the programs that, when I first saw it in Kubuntu, I thought that I would never have any use for. After using it for a bit I now miss it on systems that don't have it. That program is called Katapult and it does more than just Katapult you into a program launch.
softpedia: Light Crafts, the producing company of LightZone, announced yesterday the availability of a beta release for the photo-editing software. With the help of this version, Linux users now have all the LightZone tools for editing and improving digital photos that Windows and Mac users have already had.
linuxinsider: "Each Linux distro comes with its own powers and problems, and to say which one you should use would be tantamount to answering, 'What kind of car should I drive?'" said Scott Whitney of Journyx. Whitney has a strong view about not getting too fanatical over the differences in Linux distros. The particular flavor you select will matter less than the fact that you are not using the Mac or Windows platforms.
linux.com: Linux has so many tools, settings, parameters, and configuration files to learn that administering your box can be a challenge. Webmin, a Web-based comprehensive administration tool for Linux, can help you get on your way.
iTWire: Well, I’ve been hornswaggled. My lovely brand-new ASUS Eee from Myer may have been a shop-soiled demo model. It wasn’t a virgin system but one that had played the field with many.

raiden's realm: Pardus Linux is a distribution built from scratch rather than from any one particular existing distribution. Born in 2005 through funding and development provided by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey, it's grown quickly and become a distribution worth taking a good long look at.

beranger: More than one year ago, I reviewed UHU-Linux 2.0, and I very much liked it. Now, when UHU-Linux 2.1 is about to be released (I don't understand Hungarian, so I can't read their forums, but I suspect they want to release before Christmas), I tested UHU-Linux 2.1 RC2 (released on 12/16), downloaded from here: uhu-linux-2.1-rc2-dvd.iso.
monroe.nu: So I've decided to rename Codeine/Video Player to Dragon Player. Its named in honor of KDE's mascot Konqui of course. I've also gone ahead and made a release, Dragon Player 2.0 Alpha 1.

Gyn Moody: Choice is an important element of free software, so it's perhaps no surprise that even at the level of the desktop environment there is more than one offering. But the main alternatives – KDE and GNOME – represent more than just a way of placing icons on a screen. Nowhere is that more evident than in their respective views on Microsoft's OOXML document standard, which are very far apart – perhaps dangerously so.
matt hartley: I am writing this piece in hopes of sharing what each desktop offering has to provide and which of these options makes the most sense for your business.
