arsgeek: A little over a week ago I received my Zonbu Notebook. Since reviewing their tiny, silent desktop replacement computer I’ve been interested in Zonbu and their business model. Could they really pull of the subscription model with inexpensive computers?
aaronbatteen.blogspot: I just switched operating systems. I was using primarily Windows XP Home Edition, and switched to Linux based Ubuntu. So far the transition has been smooth and everything seems to be running well.
fightpc.blogspot: After some weeks waiting to allow the news to settle, I've decided to install the new release of Ubuntu known as Gutsy Gibbon. I have started with my laptop that was most needed of an upgrade as it was still running the same version I installed 18 months ago.
kmandla.wordpress: More and more it becomes clear hat not all Ubuntu users or forum members fit the stereotype of a Linux geek. Another non-techie with a personal history in computers, bodhi.zazen might represent the face of Linux enthusiasts to come: someone who has interests and responsibilities (like four children!) beyond the computer screen, but has one foot planted firmly in the Ubuntu community.
commandline.org.uk: I have not finished everything I need to do so I am taking my new laptop with me over the Christmas holidays. This reminded me that it was about time that I encrypted my /home directory. In this article I will explain how I did it.
bloggernews.net: About 6 weeks ago I made the big change, out with Windows and in with Linux. Linspire is a commercial Linux distribution and was billed as the easiest to use and most user friendly. Guess what? It is the easiest.
mcuee.blogspot: I started to try out Linux again with Ubuntu 5.04 and I liked it quite a lot. Then I was trying to 5.10 and it was not as good so I started to look at Fedora as well (Core 4). Soon I fixed the problem with 5.10 and then I found 6.06 LTS a great distribution that I am still running it as the main distribution now.
softpedia: Today, you will learn how to install Ubuntu Gutsy (as a second operating system) on your PlayStation 3 gaming console. This will NOT erase your PlayStation 3 native operating system (called XMB) and it will run as an alternative OS on your PS3 console. Ready? Are you excited? Let's go!
Serdar Yegulalp: This Christmas I decided to give a few gifts to people in the open source community. I'm making donations to the maintainers of some of my favorite and most widely used software projects. They've earned some payback!
linux.com: Lisa Hoover talks about highlights from this past week -- and a little about next week's stories, too, including a "sneak peek" at one item featured in the (upcoming) Linux.com holiday gift guide.
Charles Babcock: Red Hat is betting that a fresh, open source messaging system can displace one of corporate America's most deeply entrenched pieces of software, IBM's WebSphere MQ, and similar messaging systems such as Tibco Software's Rendezvous and Microsoft's MSMQ.

hurricanelabs.blogspot: About a year ago now I made the best computing decision of my adult life. It was a cold and snowy evening at my apartment, and good-ole' XP was ready for its bi-yearly rebuild. I decided to grow a pair and just take the plunge: I backed up my data and proceeded to install the Ubuntu 6.06.
scienceblogs.com/gregladen: There has been a lot of interesting discussion on the benefits and negatives of a stable API on this thread, with good points being made on both sides. Greg Kroah-Hartman (an advocate of the changing API) sent me a document that may be worth reading. It is, in essence, the argument opposing the stable API:
linuxiseasy.blogspot: Linux is an operating system that was initially created as a hobby by a young student, Linus Torvalds. Apart from the fact that it's freely distributed, Linux's functionality, adaptability and robustness, has made it the main alternative for proprietary Unix and Microsoft operating systems.
Also: Linux Distros
forums.beyondunreal.com: On the official mailing list for the Linux client and server, Ryan Gordon reports that the Linux Dedicated Server package is nearly ready.
Linux Today: Somewhere in the open source application known as OpenSSL, a line of code was found that exposed a small, but exploitable, vulnerability within part of the application. Normally, with open source software, after a bug is found and a fix is created, the patch is packaged up and readied for downloading. But even though OpenSSL is open source, that is not what happened in this instance.
register: The usual crew - me, Matt Asay and Dave Rosenberg - went after Novell in Episode 7. Then we went after Novell some more. And finished off the Novell bashing with some Novell bashing. Next it was Red Hat's turn. No show ripping on Novell and Red Hat would be complete without a helping of cynicism directed at Sun Microsystems, Facebook and the masters of the felch spoon over at Gartner.
