FOSSwire: We’ve all heard it. “[Insert open-source OS] has no good games.” You know they are wrong. But what do you do? You use a top-ten list. Or in our case, top thirteen.

phoronix: X.Org 7.3 is being released today and for NVIDIA users, there will be a compatibility issue with the ABI for X.Org 7.3.

PreshBlog: I’m setting up a PC for my future father-in-law right now. I’m avoiding installing Windows as I hate dealing with it. So, I needed a Linux distro that’s clean and simple that he should be able to just get on with. My friend Tony recommended PCLinuxOS.
appscout.com: Linux, here I come. Making the leap to Linux was a bit scary for me. I've never experienced it before, let alone even seen its interface and what it can do. And it seems more now than ever that more people are trying out Linux.
newstatesman: This week, the Greens have joined together with Friends of the Earth, New Internationalist, People and Planet and the Free Software Foundation to call on other social and activist groups to reject Microsoft's Vista operating system and encourage the use of free software.
LinuxWorld: Virtualization is the hot topic in the Linux business, but it's off the developers' agenda. Here's what kernel developers are planning to discuss at their upcoming conference in Cambridge.
linux.com: It seems like just yesterday that the GNOME Project got its start, but actually it was a decade ago that Miguel de Icaza got the ball rolling. To get some perspective on GNOME's history, I spoke to de Icaza and longtime GNOME contributor and GNOME Foundation board member Jeff Waugh.
free geekery: Recently, our infatuation with Ubuntu begged the question: which Ubuntu blogs have the biggest reach? With nowhere to turn to answer this question definitively, we thought it would be an interesting exercise to rank all of the blogs in the Ubuntu niche.
techrepublic: Using an old Dell computer, a few wired and wireless network cards, and the ClarkConnect Linux distribution, I built a custom wireless router that offered strong security, great management tools, and plenty of range.

itmanagement: Few major pieces of free software are more eagerly awaited than KDE 4. With changes to everything from the core libraries and window manager to the look, feel and function of the desktop, by any standard, KDE 4 is an extreme makeover of the popular desktop environment.
Matt Asay: Microsoft may wish that it were above the law, but the Free Software Foundation has issued a press release calling Microsoft to repentance for its efforts to deny GPLv3's hold on it.
techpersona: Firefox is becoming increasingly popular. One reason may be simple spite against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. For me, the reason is Firefox’s extensibility. Its interface and functions can be customized. I have 13 extensions–the functional add-ons. I want to suggest for you.
