ZDNet: IPv6, in addition to providing several security and efficiency enhancements, provides on the order of 340 “undecillion” addresses (that’s a lot, by the way). Sounds great, and it will be once we’re all connecting to networks and hardware that make use of IPv6. However this probably won’t apply to most of us for some time.

RedMonk: In the three years since Ubuntu was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace, debate as to its viability and marketability within “the enterprise,” whatever that means anymore, has been rampant. Cynics contend that the status quo - where there’s Red Hat and there’s everyone else - is also the shape of things to come.
linux.com: The nature of my work forces me to be something of a digital nomad -- my notebook computer and a wireless connection are essential parts of my working day. I've been known to move between several wireless access points in one day. One of the few wireless connection managers that I've actually found useful is wicd - pronounced "wicked."
