junauza.blogspot.com: Simply Mepis is a Linux newbie’s dream. It is known for its ease-of-use and its exceptional hardware detection.

htmlfixit: Having used Linux on servers for many years now, I’m always keen to see if it has progressed enough for me to use as my “daily driver” desktop/laptop OS. The test this time was on a NEC Centrino Laptop. I figured I’d stick with a desktop OS that has as much in common with CENTOS/RHEL as possible. To that end I’ve based this on Fedora Core 7.

This is the first in Nokia's Internet Tablet series of devices to include an integrated sliding keyboard and a GPS receiver. It was on display at a tradeshow I attended, so I was able to get some time with this model and put together my first thoughts on it.

Groklaw nevertheless became extremely popular very quickly. In this Q & A, she explains how Groklaw operates, what its purposes include, and where it is likely to head in the future.
Forbes: Even the best technology needs a sugar daddy. Seven years ago, Linux got just that when IBM said it would put $1 billion on the then-nascent open-source operating system, pushing the software into the corporate mainstream. Now the same could be about to happen for Linux with the mobile phone, with Google set to give Linux a major endorsement this November.
