b-eye-network.com: Building a commercial software product may be like putting together a major motion picture, but getting any software project done will have similarities to TV/film productions.

daveshields.wordpress: I presented some thoughts on “Linux” and “GNU/Linux” in a recent post trying to make the case to use “Linux” in preference to “GNU/Linux.” You face a similar choice when writing a post about Ubuntu.
Linux Planet: At a mere 50MB, Damn Small Linux (DSL) seems like it would be more at home in the realm of rescue disks instead of Desktop OSs. After booting up into full graphical mode, you may be hooked on this tiny distribution forever. I am impressed.
eejitsguides.com: Ubuntu Linux have been releasing server versions of their distro for a while now, aimed at providing a quick and easy way to set up a Linux server, so I decided to give it a try.

informationweek blogs: A few years ago, my biggest complaint about Linux applied to many things in the computer world: The documentation was uniformly lousy and scattershot. Since then, at least one distribution -- Ubuntu -- has set a fairly high standard of documentation. There’s still a few things I’d like to see done better, though.
laptopmag.com: When Dell first announced that it would offer Ubuntu--a free open-source, Linux-based operating system--on select notebooks, millions of tech-heads unleashed victory cries. Linux, the longtime OS of choice for the hardcore techie, was poised to go mainstream. We at LAPTOP had to ask: Is Ubuntu ready for the world?
opseast.wordpress: I was eating lunch with a partner the other day and he related to me that a colleague of his had reported that a friend of his sister’s fiance’s father’s lawyer’s second half-cousin (or something more confusing) had said that Microsoft would have a version of Microsoft Linux next year, no fooling.
