tgdaily: Ubuntu is quickly becoming one of the most popular Linux distributions. Its current release is version 7.04, entitled Feisty Fawn. The next version will be 7.10, dubbed Gutsy Gibbon.
fsm: Compiz Fusion has little or no documentation. The little that exists is meant for hardcore geeks who are expected to know what obscure and unintuitive commands like “git” are. Therefore, this guide was created as a sort of all-in-one guide for all users of the major Ubuntu distributions and the major video cards.
linux-watch: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has once more claimed that Linux and open source violates Microsoft's intellectual property and patents. Canonical's CEO Mark Shuttleworth thinks Ballmer has it all wrong.
itmanagement.earthweb: The competition for market share between the leading desktop OSes, Windows, Mac and Linux, has seen no major revolution this year. But based on data from Net Applications, there have been subtle changes that suggest major shifts in the years ahead.

zdnet blogs: Another update of the Linux kernel slipped out this week with a new process scheduler, virtualization options and a wee bit of controversy to boot. Linux 2.6.23, which was released October 9, incorporates a new process scheduler called the Completely Fair Scheduler.
Tom Albers's blog: Last week I installed Mandriva Spring edition. This week version 2008 was officially released. Yesterday I updated my system to 2008, but that left my computer in a bad shape. The new kernel paniced while trying to unpack the initrd. Very strange things. In the end I decided to simply download the One cd and see if that one would run.
PCPro: Linspire is seeking to overturn the image of Linux being a difficult proposition for new users by bundling its latest operating system with a whole range of proprietary drivers, codecs and software.
phoronix: If you have wanted to encrypt your Ubuntu installation on your hard drive quickly and easily, with Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" it's become even easier now that the alternate installer supports encrypting partitions. However, the Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" Ubiquity installer currently lacks LVM and dm-crypt support.
raiden's realm: Linux Mint is a distribution that rests in a rather interesting position within the Linux community. While it's a unique and separate distribution in and of itself, it's so much like Ubuntu that it's almost like a clone.

spokesmanreview.com/blogs: While I appreciate having the weather bar atop the SR web site, unlike most people reading the news online, I have little use for the link and even less use for Accuweather, but the story only begins there, for my tastes in what I allow on my computer desktop differs a lot from your typical Windows user. That is because, for over five years and change, I have been nearly-exclusively running Linux in the GUI workstation mode, and for over two years using Ubuntu Linux workstation as my operating system of choice.
dsd’s weblog: In addition to all the upstream changes, gentoo-sources-2.6.23 (which will be in portage very soon) has some Gentoo-specific feature changes worth noting:

ubuntu.com: Yesterday we kicked this whole thing off and took a look at Deskbar and Tracker. Today we turn our attention to X, the graphical subsystem of any Ubuntu (or Linux or Unix machine). As any existing Ubuntu user knows, not only do you need to configure X, but breakages can happen. Thankfully with Ubuntu 7.10, there comes a few new features to help out with these problems, including better auto detection and configuration, Bulletproof X and graphical X config, for those times when you really to play with something.
