Pingdom - an uptime monitoring company conducted a survey recently where it researched the technologies that power 7 most popular websites. All these websites except Alexaholic, exclusively use Linux as their choice of OS. Alexaholic is hosted on Windows.
Those of you who are outside of the Linux circle of influences must have heard about Eric Raymond's rejection of Fedora. But if you ask me, the really interesting thing has been the public reaction to his comments in, well, the reader comments area of the article.

We're going to use the Gnome Partition Editor (Gparted) from the Ubuntu LiveCD to shrink the Ubuntu partition on the hard disk and create enough space for an installation of XP. We'll then install XP, and, because XP overwrites the master boot record, we'll restore the GRUB boot loader so that either XP or Linux can be selected at boot time.
John Pugh MP argues that a bias against open-source within Whitehall has lead to schools and universities becoming too focused on proprietary technology.
The deal between Linux makers Ubuntu and Linspire will help to address fragmentation of the open source operating system, according to an analyst.
It took some looking, but as it turns out, the issue that broke gnome-obex-send ability to send files to a mobile Bluetooth phone (such as my Cingular 8125) has a very simple fix. So, for those of you on Edgy looking to send files back and forth between your phone and PC, let’s get started.
The release of the third version of the GNU Project's General Public License will be delayed by a few months. "We were supposed to release the third draft in January, and we have not yet done so," Stallman said in reply to a query. "We are almost ready."
Cuba is the rough diamond of the western-southern hemisphere. Intentionally neutered by almost 50 years of U.S. foreign policy, Cuba has still been able to create one of the world's highest literacy rates, provide free health care to all its citizens, and exports more doctors than any other nation. Now Cuba stands on the precipice of a revolution in the use and development of free and open source software. This will not only likely have dramatic effects on the internal politics of the nation, but also lead to Cuba's next significant export -- free and open source software.
There's been a lot of talk in the last couple weeks about the significant negative impact that Windows Vista will have on the environment. Almost 100% of this negative impact is the waste that it will generate by making millions of machines obsolete.
Bill Gates once called the open source community a bunch of communists, thinking the open source ideal was against anyone owning the fruits of their programming labors. However, he has missed the real point. It's about not being held to ransom -- freedom to modify, extend and supplement your technology as you see fit.
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet, and Intellectual Property is making another attempt to reform patent law. I need your help to lobby them to add protection from software patent attacks for Open Source software and Open Standards.

Ubuntu developers are finalising preparations for the release of the next version -- dubbed Feisty Fawn -- of the popular Linux distribution in mid-April.
The blur filter, one of the most eagerly-awaited Inkscape features, was recently introduced in Inkscape version 0.45. The blur filter opens up a wide range of photo-realistic rendering possibilities. I’ll walk you through some example applications of the blur filter so you can get a feel for what some of those possibilities are.
Trolltech, the Norwegian company behind the Qt toolkit has become the second Patron of KDE. Being a Patron of KDE is an ideal way to both support the KDE project and become a more active member of the KDE community. Of course, aside from financial matters, sponsors of KDE are a vital part of the vibrant community outreach scheme.
I realized that the $3000 laptop was no longer necessary, and that all the things I wanted to do with a computer I could do with Linux on an older, cheaper machine. I wouldn’t ever buy another $3000 computer, because I know now that the hardware I kept pushing for is unnecessary.
It seems that barely a month can go bye without me finding some Linux based content that I object to and it's happened again. An article on CoolTechZone.com was trying to explain Why Microsoft Should Acquire Linux and I couldn't help but think "why not turn water to wine along the way".
Edubuntu is the Ubuntu distribution's educational variant. It provides a software platform that allows educators to spend more time teaching with computers and less time managing them.
