itmanagement: GNU/Linux offers a bewildering variety of flavors -- or distributions, as they're called. To a newcomer's eye, many of these seem virtually identical to each other. Here, in alphabetical order, is a list of the seven distributions that have most affected GNU/Linux as a whole:
zdnet blogs: The most important reason you don’t see Linux desktops everywhere you look is that Linux desktop applications aren’t generally compelling.
infoworld blogs: Just 6 percent of developers working with open-source software have adopted the new GNU General Public License version 3, an Evans Data survey has found.
LoCo About Ubuntu!: There really has been some good reviews of Ubuntu, as well as editorials, but in the past week or so there seems to have been a mini-explosion of anti-Ubuntu articles. They seem to be coming from two groups of people.
pcworld.com: Early user reviews of IBM's new Lotus Symphony office software suite are unlikely to be music to IBM's ears. "Overall, I don't see this as an Office killer," blogged a tester.

blogs.techrepublic.com: Linux, although it’s highly touted as a more secure and reliable operating system, simply won’t work in my environment. I suppose I could consider Linux for my servers, but not for my desktops. In fact, I’ve seen it reported that Linux is running on eight of the ten most reliable Web Hosting Servers. But for desktop systems, Linux is almost nowhere to be seen.
lunapark: Over the weekend Ubuntu released the likely default wallpaper for their next release Gutsy 7.10 (coming in October). Although it’s only a wallpaper, it does help to mold the first impressions.
Aaron Seigo: A couple of blog entries back a reader left this comment: About kde hacking though, I'm in the first year of a computer science program that I don't think is going to touch on anything kde related, Where should I start if I wanted to get into kde hacking? Pick up the qt 4 manual, or something else?
Caitlyn Martin: Every time I write a review I get comments and e-mails asking me to review Puppy Linux. Puppy has lots of people who really seem to love and zealously support the distro. I invariably download a copy (most recently 2.17) and try and run it. I invariably give up on it very quickly.
kernelTRAP: "The attached patch adds a generic intermediary (FS-Cache) by which filesystems may call on local caching capabilities, and by which local caching backends may make caches available," explained David Howells describing his "generic filesystem caching facility" patch.
pcbsd.org: The PC-BSD team is pleased to announce the availability of PC-BSD 1.4 (da Vinci edition)! Some highlights include Xorg 7.2, KDE 3.5.7, and Compiz-Fusion 0.5.2.
jonobacon: Today the LugRadio team are proud to announce opening of Season 5 with the very first episode entitled All Things Happen In Fives. This is not just any old season though, we have two new presenters, Adam Sweet and Chris Procter, a brand new website, some new promotional photography and we are also going to be doing more live shows with Season 5.
nytimes: Marcel Marceau, the wiry French mime who mostly performed as the chalk-faced Bip and did much to revive the art of pantomime, died Saturday in France. He was 84.
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.
