ZDNet: It is 15 years this July since the first product to bear the name "ThinkPad" graced the shelves, in the form of the 2521 ThinkPad, a tablet design sporting a 20MHz 386SX processor and a 20MB solid-state hard drive. Since that launch, this most enduring of tech brands has gone through a lot; some of it good, some of it not so good. Here's a potted history.
tectonic: Ubuntu will release its next long term support (LTS) edition of the popular Linux distribution in April 2008. This is according to Mark Shuttleworth who was speaking at the Ubuntu Live conference in Portland, Oregon yesterday.
techdo.com: Firefox 3 will include some significant changes. Here is a quick recap of design work that's been going on in the Mozilla community over the past few weeks for Firefox 3.
freesoftware mag: We have come to a cross-roads in the computer world today. There are two big factors that stop most people from loading GNU/Linux onto their computer. The first is that they think they need to be a geek to install it. Also, people think that you can’t run Windows if you have GNU/Linux. However, it is actually possible to run Windows and GNU/Linux on the same computer.
internetnews.com: What is the impact on Linux distribution usage of the Novell patent deal with Microsoft? According to open source enterprise content management (ECM) vendor Alfresco, it's driving users to Red Hat.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Plasma progress, with new Plasmoids: Browser, Notes, 3D Earth Model, Twitter, Desktop, and Tiger (scripting example), and the development of a mouse cursor data engine. Support for encrypted storage devices in Solid, with better integration of device support and Plasma in Amarok.
phoronix: Starting out the first-ever Ubuntu Live 2007 conference was Mark Shuttleworth's keynote followed by Stephen O'Grady and Jeff Waugh. Starting off the day was the announcements of Canonical Landscape for system monitoring and management and Ubuntu 8.04 being a Long Term Support (LTS) release.

BBC: Five years after the concept was first proposed, the so-called $100 laptop is poised to go into mass production. Hardware suppliers have been given the green light to ramp-up production.
blino: This week-end, it was splashy that was bothering me again. Since we are considering its inclusion in Mandriva Linux 2008.0, to replace the bootsplash kernel patch, I had to try it.
troy_at_kde: So folks, it has come to my attention through various conversations with people involved with open source, but not KDE, that we have an image problem. The problem is that KDE has outgrown its name. It used to be Kool, but now it's just K. It used to be Desktop, but it's outgrowing that metaphor. So all we have left is the Environment.
kernelTRAP: As expected, Linus Torvalds released the 2.6.23-rc1 kernel two weeks after the release of 2.6.22, ending the merge window, "and it has a *ton* of changes as usual for the merge window, way too much for me to be able to post even just the shortlog or diffstat on the mailing list".
mrzonbu: Ordering a Zonbu appears to be relatively straight-forward. Typical e-commerce stuff via their website. My total order came in below $350 (I think it was about $315 before shipping).
wired blogs: The first Ubuntu Live conference just kicked off here in Portland, Oregon with a keynote from Canonical founder and Mark Shuttleworth. His talk centered around how the free operating system his company funds and supports is capable of bringing the same values it brings to the desktop -- ease of use, performance and compatibility -- to the server.
FOSSwire: There are a fair few free software and open source content management system (CMS) projects out there, and finding the one that best suits your needs isn’t always an easy task. That is exactly the problem that OpenSourceCMS.com tries to solve.
shiftbackspace.com: Often I get questions regarding the software that I use on a daily basis. While I use Firefox, the GIMP, Amarok and VLC daily, I also use a fantastic FTP client, FileZilla, many times a day. Not only is FileZilla open-source (under the GPL), but it is also available on all major systems - Linux, Mac, and Windows.
In this tutorial I will teach you how to dual-boot between Windows XP/Vista and Ubuntu. This tutorial will be split up into two parts: Part one for people who have no operating system installed. Part two for people who have Windows XP/Vista installed and do not want to re-install Windows.
linux journal: This week we'll look at two excellent applications that are coming into greater use here at Studio Dave, the LiVES video editor for Linux, and Reaper (yes, again), a native Windows audio/MIDI sequencer running under Wine.
penguin pete: Fractals have a long history of fascinating computer and math geek alike, but this time we're going to take the way a fractal simulates natural ordered chaos and apply it to the practical purpose of drawing a natural object! However, this isn't going to be a very realistic tree, just a drawing good enough for an icon or a game sprite.
Groklaw: It's worse than Novell's, actually. It's worse than Tivo, in my book. With Linspire's agreement, you have to give up pretty much all your GPL freedoms, as far as I can make out, and more. And what do you get in return for giving up everything? True Type fonts, Windows Media 10, DVD playback, patent coverage...
InfoWorld: The Linux 2.6.21 kernel then improved on the support for paravirtualization with the full featured addition of Virtual Machine Interface (VMI). Now, if that weren't enough, the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel release will feature two new virtualization frameworks.
