mmcgrath.livejournal: I popped the question back in July on FAB about Fedora's Target market. Since then I've seen some interesting theories about it. Combined with a bit more thinking and off-line discussions I've come up with my own theory. Part prediction and part wishful thinking, I hope others will agree.
leenuxnews: I really think the delays and underwhelming betas are a strong indicator of why OSS projects should not try to replicate the long term release cycles of the closed source (Windows) world.
searchenterpriselinux: The next time a user comes knocking with an Access Denied error message and blames it on Samba, tell him to slow down. Most of the time, it's not Samba's fault, said Samba release manager Jerry Carter. "Our motto is 'Bug for bug, feature for feature, we are completely compatible with Microsoft Windows,''" he said.
zdnet: Asterisk is becoming an increasingly popular way for organizations to deploy Voice over IP (VoIP) without making a huge investment in proprietary systems. One of the major hurdles to get over when deploying Asterisk is to learn how the different configuration files work together and how to configure the system to answer phones.
broadcastnewsroom: Acacia Research Corporation announced today that its Disc Link Corporation subsidiary, which is part of its Acacia Technologies group, a leader in technology licensing, has entered into a license agreement with Novell, Inc. covering patents relating to portable storage devices with links.
We need to realize the importance of FSF brand ambassadors. We need to create awareness amongst various distribution maintainers about these ambassadors. The community should raise its voice and make sure that these brand ambassadors are always included in their distribution of choice. Only then we will be able to see FSF prosper.
LinuxElectrons: This Fedora 7 review is really late, especially with Fedora 8 just around the corner. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to write since its my latest switch from OpenSUSE 10.2.
arstechnica forums: It's obvious it's still Linux and has it's warts. I mean when I first booted it took a bit for the bios to initialize. I don't know what that was about, but took about 30 seconds. Never saw that on my Ibook.
linux.com: So, you want to be a kernel hacker. Before you go down that path, or get involved with any other free or open source development project, you should know that it's often a wild, raucous place where -- no matter what level of coding skill you possess -- your tolerance for criticism or rejection might constantly be tested. Even Linus Torvalds isn't immune to criticism.
kernelTRAP: OpenBSD project creator Theo de Raadt detailed his concerns regarding BSD-licensed code and Dual-BSD/GPL-licensed code being re-licensed under only the GPL as previously discussed here, "honestly, I was greatly troubled by the situation, because even people like Alan Cox were giving other Linux developers advice to ... break the law."
vertito.blogspot: Linux administration of RPM packages from linux boxes is basically required for keeping up and maintaining your package database tight, neat, and clean linux boxes. This has been possible from command line terminal ever since RedHat become well know.
pinderkent.blogsavy: I’m a staunch supporter of putting old, but working, computers to good use again. Personally, I have repurposed numerous systems back into production after they were deemed to be too old, and replaced with newer hardware. One of my favourite tools for enabling this is NetBSD.
bri-computer.blogspot: If you're like me, a total cheapskate, I believe that you would do well on Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS. Both are very user friendly, and I was blown away by the two Operating Systems.
matt asay: The Economist has an amazingly good article this week on Google, and its growing influence and power. Rather than ring alarm bells about Google's sometimes casual approach to privacy concerns, the article suggests that Google needs a deeper change of heart.
gentoo.org: The database will be shutdown and backed up, final consistency checks will be performed, and pending the unforseen, the conversion to full UTF-8 support is the last step. The forums will be shutdown during this time. This activity is scheduled to start on 2007-09-08.

CLICK: Since my Puppy 2.16 review took so long that 2.17 came out before I finished it, I decided to dive into Puppy 2.17 now so I don't get beat by 2.18 (though I offer no guarantees).
kernelTRAP: "I've long hated the non-killability of tasks accessing a dead NFS server," Matthew Wilcox said along with a prototype patch to fix the issue based on a 2002 posting by Linus Torvalds.
Motley Fool: Novell came up aces in its third-quarter report yesterday. The fact that revenues grew means a couple of good things for the software platform designer.
Linux Today: It was, for me, a fascinating study of short-term versus long-term as I watched the proceedings surrounding the standardization process of Microsoft's Open XML document format unfold this week. But then, I am easily fascinated.
