tech.blorge.com: With Mandriva and others rejecting Microsoft's Linux payoff deal, there is a lot of talk lately about Microsoft's new Patent Infringement Protection Plan and how it might not be the “you scratch our backs and we wont stab you in yours” plan that it was initially thought to be.
regdeveloper: Open source developers at Novell are spending this week on a 'working holiday' that the company calls Hackweek. Almost all of Novell's 300 SUSE Linux and open source developers around the world - plus a few guests - have been given the week to work on whatever open source projects they want to support.
keithcu.com: I was honored to present my ideas about Ubuntu & Debian at Debconf 7, with a number of Ubuntu and Debian developers present, including Mark (first time I saw him in person) and DPL Sam Hocevar.
seopher: Google trends is a cunning tool; one that can be used to show the query frequency of various keywords. Most people misuse it by comparing "Linux" and "Vista" in an attempt to show how one is better than the other - a comparison that's as foolish as it is inaccurate. So I'm putting my thoughts down and applying them to some Google trends searches and here is what I've found.
education.zdnet.com: At first blush, the new offering, with a proposed release this fall, appears to have the makings of a serious competitor. Designed as an add-on “EDU-CD” to accompany the upcoming 10.3 release of openSUSE, the so-called “SLEducator” is designed to “[ease] the installation and configuration of an educational network and student desktop.”

devside.net/blog: I’ve always said that for Linux to have a chance on the desktop it must be turned into Windows. I know how that might sound to most, but that statement is completely true.
Seeking Alpha: Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone. Dell's initial success with Ubuntu apparently has caught Hewlett-Packard's attention.
linux devcenter: With the release of Debian Etch as stable a couple months ago there have been several articles circulating comparing these two distributions. I’ve also found myself in conversations with several people of various backgrounds about this, including Don Crowder, a hobbist who recently wrote Slowly Closing Old Windows. The result of all this discussion has been pretty much as I expected.
ZNet: Many of us know that governments can threaten the human rights of software users through censorship and surveillance of the Internet. Many do not realize that the software they run on their home or work computers can be an even worse threat. Thinking of software as "just a tool", they suppose that it obeys them, when in fact it often obeys others instead.
linux.com: I've been a fan of SimplyMEPIS for years. Earlier this month the MEPIS site announced a community variation for older computers based on SimplyMEPIS.
