geekzone.co.nz: Even in this day and age you can sometimes still hear the echo of the old FUD: Installing software under Linux is difficult. Really? Maybe that was the case in the past, but it certainly doesn't hold for modern Linux distributions anymore.
magepower.org: Hello Jaka, thank you for taking the time to do this interview for Mage Power. Would you tell us about yourself and how you became interested in Linux?
cubicgarden: So its been a while but I'm finally getting my head around the gnu/linux system and environment. There are some great things about the switch which makes me cringe everytime I go back into windows (on my work pc and when I want to read my busted sd card - more on this soon). But there are some bad things too.
Also: Ubuntu Gutsy: Lookin’ better than ever!
linux.com: Translating a command line tool to a graphical interface usually means a loss of functionality. However, in the case of the newly released trowser text browser, while I wouldn't swear that the transition has retained all the functionality of the less command that it is intended to replace, I doubt that anyone short of an expert is likely to notice the difference.
antirez.com: Yesterday I bought a Microsoft webcam: it's not an exception, like most of the stuff from Microsoft I had (very little, fortunately) something to do with in my life it's a low quality product: all eye candy and little substance.
canada.com: Vietnam's Communist Party plans to switch its 20,000 desktop computers nationwide to open-source software next year, avoiding problems with copyright infringement, state media said Friday.
John C. Dvorak: Though the open-source movement isn't going to die anytime soon, it's looking a little ragged at the edges. And with the appearance of the onerous GPL v3 and the slow deterioration of the popular Firefox browser, I now wonder if open source may have been a fad, or perhaps just a more elaborate iteration of the shareware phenomenon in the 1980s.
desktoplinux: Canonical, Ubuntu Linux distribution’s commercial sponsor, has announced that the release version of Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Edition will launch Oct. 18.
iTWire: Last week I downloaded Mandriva 2008 just to have a look. The 2008 version of Mandriva is extremely easy to install - it took just 14 minutes for a working interface, including configuring every bit of hardware that I wanted to configure.
liquidat: While Fedora 8 will not ship with KDE 4 as the default KDE version there will be all necessary packages available to provide a development environment. Now these packages also entered the Fedora 7 repository.
novell cool blogs: The past few weeks I’ve read a number of pieces on the viability of Linux on the desktop. Pros (very few in most cases), cons (complete lists of them!) and more than a few passionate responses. It’s hard to read through these and not be taken by the fervor that nearly everyone writing and commenting has regarding this topic.
iTWire: Although Linux is frequently referred to by the names of various distributions, what can properly be called “Linux” is really the management part of the operating system known as the kernel which interacts with the computer’s hardware. Here’s how the kernel works in Ubuntu, and how to rebuild it.

jon-reagan.blogspot: Yesterday afternoon I decided to go ahead and get Ubuntu 7.10, via upgrade. I could not be happier.
Also: Ubuntu will be my primary OS
And: First experience with Ubuntu
All About Linux: There are hundreds of Linux distributions targeting a diverse sets of users. One such specialized Linux distribution which is targeted specifically at servers is the Engrade Secure Linux. As the name indicates, this Linux distribution lays stress on the security aspect.
computerworld: In his Oct. 1 column, Michael Gartenberg claimed that Linux is still far from making it on the desktop. As someone who has tracked Linux’s progress since 1991 and the progress of the IT industry since 1979, I would like to offer an alternative perspective.
lkmltimes: Stefan Heinrichsen asked on the LKML: "Can someone tell me where to find a list of companies (don’t matter in which country) that employ kernel developers?” Greg Kroah-Hartman replied.
