linuxdevices: Jon "maddog" Hall has made a featured guest appearance on a podcast series devoted to embedded Linux development. The veteran Linux promoter discusses binary kernel drivers, mixing proprietary and GPL software, and his "secret" retirement plan in the latest episode of TimeSys's Linux Radio podcast.
LWN: No Starch Press is holding an auction to benefit the FreeBSD Foundation. "Open source software depends on community support and the efforts of countless non-profits, like The FreeBSD Foundation."
adamw: Yep, the backports for the new Compiz and Compiz Fusion releases have hit the 2008 repositories.
linux-watch: Should we be ready, as Kent Brockman might put it, to "welcome our new Microsoft overlords," or are the IDC Quarterly Server Tracker figures not really reflecting the reality of how servers are used in businesses? I, for one, think that what IDC is measuring and what server operating systems people are really using are two entirely different things.
zdnet: Microsoft is reportedly working on running a stripped down version of Windows XP to run on the One Laptop Per Child Foundation's "US$100 laptop".
softpedia: The latest version of openSUSE Linux (10.3), which was released a couple of weeks ago, brings new features for the end user. Here follows a complete tutorial with screenshots.
zdnet blogs: The Gibbonfest continues. We've just had an Asus Eee in to look at - the £220 laptop that everyone who's seen it is going to buy. However, we inherited the Eee from another reviewer, who had accidentally nuked the Xandros Linux OS with which it had been supplied. Since we couldn't find the binaries to reinstall the Asus custom version of Xandros, and had Ubuntu 7.10 CDs sitting around, we thought we'd give the Gibbon another spin.
Raiden's Realm: There is a vast number of tools available for Linux that provide the end user with access to a rich multimedia experience that is both satisfying, but also useful. There are tools that play audio files, cd's, dvd's, have fancy interfaces, or even work from the console. Let's look at each of them and what they offer for you.
Phoronix: The Battle for Wesnoth is not your typical run-of-the-mill TBS game. The genre turn-based strategy, or TBS, is very self-explanatory. It is, simply put, a game where-as the game flow is broken down into turns or rounds and the game plays from there on.

webwereld.nl: Open source is disruptive, it develops rapidly, is adopted quickly, and it efficiently meets market needs while enabling new market capabilities. These were some of the statements made at an open source symposium held in Western Australia (WA) earlier this month. We managed to catch up with Red Hat ANZ Alliances Manager Craig Nielsen after the event to find out where he thinks the Open Source industry stands and where the market is heading.
laptopmag.com: The Eee PC may be designed to appeal to children and older customers, but it should also tempt anyone looking for a lightweight budget PC that weighs next to nothing and connects to the Internet easily. It's ten times simpler to use than any Windows machine, starts up twice as fast (no crapware!), and is only about a fifth of the cost of other systems in its weight class.
Matt Asay: A few years ago market share data clearly demonstrated Linux server growth outpacing Windows server growth. Today, Linux server growth has apparently slowed while Windows is picking up, according to IDC. Why? The rate of migration from Unix to Linux has slowed.
And: Linux Losing Market Share to Windows Server
bnamericas.com: Venezuela's government has migrated a total of 23 public institutions to open source platforms, the government said on its website.
techzone: October is generally the month when major distributions like OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, Mandriva etc make a release. I wanted to check which of the major distributions keep themselves updated and the release of Gimp 2.4.0 on 24th October 2007. In this article I will list the version of Gimp present in various common distributions, the source of different versions is Distrowatch.
LinuxWorld: Open source software initially was a head-scratcher: “How can you make money selling something for free?” But once open source advocates clarified the meaning of free – “Free as in speech, not as in beer” – the open source economy took off.
Also: VMware vs. Xen vs. Microsoft
And: Novell NetWare vs. Microsoft networking
Enterprise Linux Log: For some it is gospel. To others, it is completely mind-bending and new. The fact of the matter is clear: Open source software, Linux included, is quickly becoming the disruptive force in IT. Some would say it has already.

This document describes how to set up the Avant Window Navigator (AWN) on Fedora 7. The result is an eye candy, dock-like bar at the bottom of the screen as a replacement for the standard gnome-panel.
