Blag Linux and Gnu (BLAG) is a Fedora Core 3 based distribution of the Linux kernel and Gnu utilities which runs on the x86 processor. BLAG aims to provide a totally free (as in speech) operating system, and it is one of only 5 distributions which are free by the standard of GNU. With this information in hand I thought I'd give it a spin.
Linux-based phones are increasingly prevalent in the marketplace, and demand for them is growing. Supporting information is readily available, whether from industry-analyst reports, e-newsletters or the latest Linux-themed conference.
VMware is opening up its virtual machine disk format specification, but today's news is about sharing, not open sourcing technologies. VMware's decision to share at no cost its format specification with developers and vendors will spur big gains in virtualization innovation.

Embedded developers are increasingly turning to open-source tools for building reliable and flexible systems and software. Open-source code can provide both raw material for building system software and applications, and development tools for creating that software.
Phaeronix is a "gentoo love-sources RR4 CD with reiser4 enabled grub, auto hardware detection with nvidia 3D support , ready for multimedia, internet, and arabic. It is optimised for i686." Once upon a time it featured a harddrive installer, that option has been pulled for at least now, although one can still manually install it very much like a stage 3 gentoo install.
