linux.com: Twice in recent weeks open source projects have surprised me with their lack of openness. In both cases, developers acted or spoke out in such a way as to intentionally push other developers away from their work.

John C. Dvorak: Microsoft has extended the life of Windows XP because Vista has simply not shown any life in the market. We have to begin to ask ourselves if we are really looking at Windows Me/2007, destined to be a disdained flop. By all estimates the number of Vista installations hovers around the number of Macs in use.
phoronix: For those that may have missed it, the ATI/AMD fglrx 8.42 display driver that was released last month had introduced AIGLX support. The open-source "Radeon" driver for ATI graphics cards going up to the R400 generation has supported AIGLX for quite some time. We have compared their Compiz performance in a few different scenarios.
Hans Reiser, the programmer behind the reiserfs used in many Linux systems, is being charged with the murder of his estranged wife, Nina Reiser. Reiser was interviewed on 20/20 last night and it was quite disturbing. His shifty eyes, monotone voice, and shallow cheeks gave all appearances of guilt. His answers didn't help his case either.
techluver.com: T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced it is partnering with One Laptop per Child for its Give One Get One initiative. T-Mobile is offering one year of complimentary T-Mobile HotSpot access to people who donate an XO laptop to a child in a developing country through the campaign.
fsckin.com: My first impression of gOS is “Gee, I thought I liked Google.” This week, WalMart has begun selling a new computer called the gPC for the price of $199. I was able to catch up with David Liu, founder of the gOS project, and ask him some questions about his brainchild.
smspillaz.wordpress: Welcome to another edition of Compiz Fusion Community News. During the period between the last entry and this one, we have seen a lot of things, such as a couple of new community plugins and some fixes for some long-standing bugs. We also saw the first ‘’stable” Compiz Fusion release (0.6) based on the 0.6 branch and Compiz 0.6.2.
cbs5.com: Apparent tensions between murder defendant Hans Reiser and his defense lawyers surfaced today but opening statement in his trial on charges that he killed his wife, Nina Reiser, last year remain set for Monday.
starryhope.com: There is no doubt that Ubuntu’s popularity has grown dramatically over the past few years, but just how popular is Ubuntu? How many people have ever heard of Ubuntu? How many people visit the Ubuntu site each month? How many people have tried Ubuntu, and more importantly, how many people are actually using it?
Architect Fantasy: Part 1 of this article came about as a result of my frustrations on sparse publicity on areas of the Ubuntu Desktop that still need further polish. I received great feedback and comments to the previous article which only reinforced my belief that some users do indeed notice much of the frustrations that I voiced.
Serdar Yegulalp: With all of the hollering about Linux, Ubuntu or otherwise, there's another open-source operating system that just celebrated getting a new 4.2 release out the door. It's one that hasn't been quite as widely-celebrated as Linux but is still deeply important in its own way: OpenBSD.

rudd-O: If you’re one of our regular readers, you’ll remember reading the article and script I wrote on automating BitTorrent downloads with TorrentFlux and rsync. The script has come to be quite handy to me, but the process of writing it is much more fun and appealing. Here’s how I did it.
dot.kde.org: KOffice, the office suite built on KDE technology and in the KDE Communtiy has recently gotten a lot of press, but is still often underrepresented. In this interview, some key KOffice developers tell us about the recent progress of KDE's Office suite.
tuxtoday: I am the master of switching distros. Also, I am the master of getting sick of switching distros, but I can’t help it. There’s just too much sweet stuff out there. I can’t just pick one.
opensuse news: From today on the live version of openSUSE 10.3 is available as GNOME or KDE Live CD. Both contain the same software as the 1 CD installation versions from launch time - just as live system.
linux.com: I felt bad for Linux vendors after reading Peter Galli's eWeek article, which claims that Linux server sales on X86 hardware have run into a stone wall, going from a 53 percent growth rate to four percent decline over the past six quarters -- until I did a little research that easily refuted that claim.
