tectonic: Last week the Ubuntu team released Ubuntu 7.10, codenamed Gutsy Gibbon, in one of the more hyped releases of the past couple of months. Tectonic joined every other Linux fan in the world in downloading a copy on the the day it was released. Then we spent the weekend working it over.
nzherald.co.nz: If the battle between computer operating systems was won or lost on the basis of which has the cutest name, Ubuntu would surely reign supreme. Ubuntu is a version of Linux, the open-source OS that is chipping away at Microsoft's domination of the software market.

cybernet: Ever since we wrote about Mint, the free finance management site, we have received a few requests from those looking for good software to manage personal finances. I found exactly what I was looking for: Money Manager Ex. Not only is it free, but it is open source and available for both Windows and Linux!
iTWire: Norway's Opera Software, intends to build on the market niche it has carved for its increasingly popular Web browser by setting up an office in the heart of Silicon Valley. Opera's new Mountain View office puts the company in close proximity to some the most important global Web players, including Google and Yahoo.
Matthew Aslett: Mitchell Baker has posted the details on Mozilla’s financial performance for 2006 and it is more good news. Revenue was up around 26% to $66.8m, while usage is also on the up.
iTWire: I've decided to see if Ubuntu can meet my needs, but recreating this backup regime under Gutsy Gibbon is proving quite a challenge. The people behind Handy Backup are working on a Linux version, but until it's available I'll have to come up with something else. I'm not prepared to start using Ubuntu for work until I get a satisfactory backup regime in place.
infoworld blogs: I'm sorry, but it needs to be said: The new Ubuntu sucks - at least when compared to Windows Vista. Yes, it's free. And yes, it's better than the previous release, Ubuntu 7.04 "Fiesty Fawn" (Yawn?). However, at heart it's still just another Gnome-based Linux distribution and, as such, remains well behind the curve when it comes to desktop sophistication.
groklaw: We very much appreciate that you can take a little bit of time out of your very busy day -- I know that you're travelling today -- to speak with us. Maybe we could start, you could tell us a little bit about the Open Source Consortium? How long has it existed? What is its mission? What's the membership?
linux.com: Not all major software versions carry the same weight. Consider the last two releases of the Fedora distribution. Fedora 7 offered little that was obvious to desktop users, despite some behind-the-scenes improvements and the opening of the release process to public scrutiny. By contrast, if Test 3 of Fedora 8 is any indication, the upcoming release, scheduled for next month, returns to the distribution's tradition of introducing a variety of innovations.
pcworld: Are you geek enough for Linux? If you're willing to take the plunge, getting started with Linux is a matter of a few easy steps. Once you're done, you should have a fully operational desktop system suitable for learning, experimentation, or even for replacing your current PC for day-to-day computing needs.

rudd-O: For the last six months, I’ve been reading article after article spewing the same bovine manure: Look at how many updates Distribution X issued! How can it be more secure than Windows? Let’s bury that stupidity under a ton of facts:
Greg Kroah-Hartman: It's been a few weeks since that announcement, and we now have over 300 different developers signed up to help create, and maintain Linux drivers! What we need now is more companies participating in the project, we have the developers, but not enough work to keep them busy.

cybernet: I managed to find a lot of time over the weekend to play with the new Ubuntu 7.10 that was released on Thursday. It took a little bit of extra work to get the restricted drivers installed, and then to enable Compiz Fusion, but it was well worth it.
polishlinux: Listening to the music played back from original audio CDs on a home computer creates clear discomfort — the CD drive is being blocked and the CDs have to be changed again and again (unless you have a home jukebox). Now it’s time we learn to rip (grab) our own audio collection and save it to a hard disk in the form of .mp3, .ogg, or .flack files.
arsgeek: Avant Window Navigator, or AWN is a neat little dock that sits at the base of your monitor and looks exceedingly nice. It’s a great addition to your compiz-fusion install (in fact, you need compiz or something like it running for AWN to work).
