internetnews.com: While the name "Netscape" is now mostly dead, its progeny continue to survive and develop. Many are familiar with Mozilla's efforts on the browser side, but Netscape also had another business -- a directory server business now run and expanded upon by Linux vendor Red Hat.
linux-watch.com: At a recent Australian Linux conference, Sam Varghese reported that two Debian developers pointed out that the Debian Project needs more corporate support for "men, money and machines" to advance the operating system. They're right. It does.
tombuntu.com: Lotus Symphony is IBM’s new productivity suite based on OpenOffice 1.1.4. It’s not open source (OpenOffice used to be dual licensed), but is free and available on Windows and Linux. I give the Beta 3 release a shot on Ubuntu to see if it had an advantage over my usual combination of Google Docs and OpenOffice 2.3.
blog.wired.com: If Hans Reiser's behavior seemed suspicious following his wife's disappearance, thank the Oakland Police Department. That's what the 44-year-old defendant's defense attorney, William DuBois, said Wednesday at his client's murder trial here.
phoronix: One of the features that was introduced a year ago into Ubuntu 7.04 "Feisty Fawn" was support for KVM. KVM -- even back to its infancy -- has been quite fast at virtualization when compared to Xen or kqemu. However, the KVM virtualization support found in Ubuntu hasn't been the most user-friendly. However, in Ubuntu 8.04 this has all changed.
Despite some commentators deploring the state of Linux video editing tools, I continue to believe that somewhere out there is a non-linear editing program that is feature rich, intuitive and stable for the Linux platform. Yesterday, I decided to give Open Movie Editor a chance.
blog.funtoo.org (Daniel Robbins): It looks like someone nominated me for the upcoming Gentoo trustee election. Before I know how to reply to this nomination, I need to know if it is even valid.
linux.com: Using VNC to remotely access your desktop, applications, and documents sounds like a great solution when you are out and about, but it has a few significant drawbacks: you have to leave your machine turned on, the VNC protocol is not secure, and often you need a dedicated VNC client to access your desktop. Ulteo, the company started by Gaël Duval of Mandriva fame, is set to offer an alternative solution.
GIMP 2.4.4 is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.4 series. Some include a fixed typo in stock icon name, removed duplicate entry from Tango palette, and fixed potential crash on missing CMYK color profile.
terminally-incoherent: Over the years I think I helped to influence few people here and there to actually start experimenting with linux. Here are the few tips I usually pass down to the newbies. I figured that I might as well record them here and just point people to this post from now on.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: Ubuntu is undoubtedly one of the most popular Linux distributions , it is popular with geeks as well as Linux newbies and even big computer cos like Dell are shipping their laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled .

junauza.blogspot.com: Fluxbuntu and MiniMe are ultra-lightweight versions of two equally popular Linux distributions namely Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS. Fluxbuntu kept it light by utilizing a Fluxbox window manager as well as other unhefty pre-installed applications. Meanwhile, MiniMe uses a KDE desktop but with minimum out-of-the-box software packages.
datamation: If you want to see the future of the portable PC, forget about the MacBook Air. Forget, too, about deluxe supertanker laptops like the HP Pavilion HDX, which fetches $1,999. No, to see where the portable computer industry is headed, take a look at the humble Asus Eee PC. All this enthusiasm raises the natural question: Why?

raiden.net: SimplyMepis, or just Mepis for short, is a distribution built around an idea of being as simple for a new user as possible. I've heard a lot of talk about Mepis lately, yet I've never really tried it before. But given that I've heard so many glowing comments and reviews about it, I thought to take it for a spin myself and see what all the hype and fuss was about.
apcmag.com: With 2,000 lines of code being added every single day, any lingering suggestion that Linux might suffer from a lack of support is clearly insane. But what lessons can the open-source OS teach its somewhat younger encyclopaedic cousin, Wikipedia?
afp.google.com: The French paramilitary police force said Wednesday it is ditching Microsoft for the free Linux operating system, becoming one of the biggest administrations in the world to make the break.
