tech.co.uk: It's the perennial question: are we approaching the year of Linux on the desktop? Linux's marketshare hasn't boomed as many fans might have hoped over the last decade. So why should 2008 be any different?
chris.pirillo.com: Beta 1 of Firefox 3 was released today. I found a few bugs, but overall it’s looking like there are some excellent new features and improvements. Let’s take a look at some of what’s new, thanks to Asa Dotzler from Mozilla.
Fabrice Facorat: This is one of the smartest thought of the year : The right approach for the free software community is to offer a different product. Indeed, we should not try to copy Windows or Mac.
iTWire: Three days after I concluded that Automatix had been behind the collapse of an Ubuntu install on iTWire editor Stan Beer's PC, there was an additional nugget of information about a second factor which could have contributed to the problem.
helios: The recent announcement posted on a once-great Linux news site, among other publications gleefully announced that a computer from Everex is selling at Walmart for 200 bucks AND it is running linux. Well...kinda...and to me and many others, this is the rub.
451 CAOS Theory: The US might be busy giving thanks but work life goes on for the rest of us in the ROTW, and comments made today by Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for information and society, indicate that perhaps Europe should be taking advantage of the fact the Americans are having a day off to focus on its use of open source and how it could be used to bolster the European economy.
CyberOrg: We’re jumping on to the PulseAudio bandwagon, same as Fedora(Interview with Lennart Poettering). To prepare the groundwork for that move, Rodrigo and I worked on porting all the required packages and getting it working on openSUSE.
mozillalinks.org: This week Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 3. Originally scheduled for mid July, the delay responds to the very long list of features this new version brings. Eight alphas and an estimated 14 months under development are both firsts for a Firefox upgrade but again are necessary for the amount of improvements and new features Firefox 3 will bring.

cafe.elharo.com: The Internet is 30 today. Exactly 30 years ago today on November 22, 1977 the first three networks were connected to become the Internet.
electronista.com: The One Laptop Per Child project today extended its Give 1, Get 1 program until the end of the year, giving individual buyers in Canada and the US an extra month to participate in the program that would otherwise end on November 26th.
linux.com: If you have a fondness for old arcade games and want to play them again, try the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), a free emulator that lets you recreate the look and feel of old arcade game systems in software. While it's written for Windows, you can run this open source application under Linux.
For the past month we had been running the 2007 Linux Graphics Survey at Phoronix where we polled users to find out what display hardware they use, what their driver choice(s) are, and their other preferences as it pertains to Linux desktop users on the visual front. We received over 20,000 submissions and have the results to share with you.
liquidat: Currently OpenOffice’s presentation program Impress lacks a presentation view with notes and so on for a second monitor during presentations. But the feature is in active development, and first results are visible.
desktoplinux: What do Linux users want from their desktop? The Linux Foundation's survey has the answers.
interopnews.com: There has been a meme going around in the Linux world that Vista is really a dog and that Microsoft is only managing to make its numbers by jamming the new OS down the throats of unwilling customers. But I don't have to use Vista to know that it's a lot more than a dog of an OS.
wine-review.blogspot: Microsoft DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms.
stompbox.typepad: Over the past few years, like lots of Linux users, I have become increasingly frustrated with the performance of Firefox in Linux. Though I haven't been as vocal as others of the state of Firefox, it was clear that most of us were just sick and tired of Firefox being a "good Windows browser that happened to run in Linux."
LWN: The OpenDocument Foundation was formed in 2005, with the mission "to provide a conduit for funding and support for individual contributors to participate in ODF development" at the standards body OASIS. So, eyebrows were naturally raised when Sam Hiser, wrote on October 16 that it was no longer supporting ODF:
iTWire: Last night I downloaded the latest beta release from Mozilla, Firefox 3 Beta 1, meaning to just have a look-see so that I could pen a few impressions. Since then, I haven't bothered to load up Firefox 2 because, even though it's a pre-production test version, Firebox 3 Beta 1 is a mighty fine browser.
linux.com: Gogh is an extremely lightweight drawing program designed for pressure-sensitive devices. Despite its simplicity, it packs in a lot of features and a lot of fun.
