Jon maddog Hall: Algae is very important to our lives. It is estimated that 73% to 87% of the net global production of oxygen is produced by algae. It is at the bottom of the food chain. How does this fit in with computing?
linux.com: Forces are mashaling to oppose the open access movement, the open source-inspired movement to make academic research publicly available online. The American Association of Publishers (AAP) recently announced the creation of the Partnership for Research Integrity in Science and Medicine (PRISM), an apparent lobby group organized to resist efforts to compel academic publishers to make publicly funded research generally available.
ZDNet: It is one thing to recognise a problem, quite another to fix it. Although the Globalisation Institute is quite correct in saying that Microsoft's effective monopoly of the desktop is unfair to competitors and holds back the market, its proposed solution is no solution at all.
raiden's realm: One of the biggest things that bothers me about Linux today is how it continues to fail at gaining any decent ground against Microsoft. By now, Linux should be kicking in Microsoft's door, stormtrooper style. But instead, the only jack boots I see around here are those worn by Microsoft.

computerweekly: An online retailer has saved more than £56,000 in software licensing costs after moving its IT platform from Microsoft Windows to Linux. "Under a Linux environment our server software licensing costs are a tenth of what it was costing us under Microsoft," said Angus Gow, programme director at Iwantoneofthose.com.
digikam.org: This weekend, the team have voted to choose the splashscreens used with next release. You can seen the pictures with links below:
iTWire: An interesting point that has been highlighted as a result of one American reviewer, Walter Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal, having obtained an Ubuntu-loaded Dell laptop for a review, is the fact that Dell appears to be plastering a vanilla Ubuntu installation on these machines and then selling them.
matt asay: Jason Maynard at Credit Suisse is downgrading Red Hat's stock from "outperform" to "neutral." Interestingly, his downgrade isn't based on Red Hat's financial performance for this quarter, but rather stems from alleged turmoil in Red Hat's personnel.
freesoftware mag: GNU/Linux comes with many commands and you use them every time you open a console and interact with it through the shell. The built-in command I want to look at is alias. It is a perfect example of a command that is simple yet useful and its use is restricted only by your knowledge.
computerweekly: The European Court's ruling against Microsoft could give IT departments greater choice in the tools they use to manage Windows.
c|net: Consumer-electronics maker Monsoon Multimedia said on Monday that it intends to comply with the terms of the General Public License version 2--used in Linux and countless other open-source programs--in an effort to settle a lawsuit filed last week.

Raiden's Realm: At the time when GNU/Linux was in its infancy and slowly growing, Microsoft intelligently and silently crept into our home computers. They launched consecutive series of successful Windows Operating Systems, sidelining other operating systems available at that time, and took over all market share.
Paul Murphy: Last week information Week editor Alexander Wolfe asked readers to respond to his “7 Reasons Why Linux Won’t Succeed On The Desktop”. Well..if he’s trolling for readers, my thought is that getting a third regular reader wouldn’t hurt the discussions here either, so… %setenv FANBOY_MODE ON
typos: It is really important that your system have the least and absolutely necessary services running, especially if it’s a public server. Okay, one might be thinking that they've got their firewalls up and running, blocking all the unnecessary ports and why should you bother? What if someone exploits a flaw in your webserver and find an even worse flaw in your blocked process to gain root access? You do let all packets to and fro loopback interface don’t you?
thegreenisred.co.uk: Ulteo, a relative newcomer to the ever evolving Linux world, is currently sitting at a not too impressive 95 on Distrowatch. After recent announcements by Gaël Duval on the Ulteo blog, I suspect that position is about to change dramatically. Whether Ulteo will climb to the dizzy heights of distributions like PCLinuxOS or Ubuntu, or even surpass Gaël’s previous project, Mandriva, remains to be seen.
dvd-guides.com: Foresight Linux is a relatively new distribution based on rPath Linux and featuring the latest Gnome and freedesktop.org desktop. This review of Foresight's latest version, 1.4, will attempt to show the strengths of this distro and why not, give you a reason to try it next time you go distro hopping!
ruminations: Trying to install Vidalia via the ports collection didn’t work out. There were dependency issues with Qt-xx-4.3.1 packages while Qt-xx-4.3.0 were installed. That brought back some bad memories about the ‘old days’ under Linux. I still can’t figure out why a third digit update should brake other packages.
