matt asay: Why sue two companies with nonexistent desktop businesses when Microsoft provides the biggest potential jackpot of all? (After all, this same company sued and settled with Apple earlier this year.) Unless, of course, it is Microsoft funding the whole thing?
aspir8or.com: Having read that PCLinuxOS had taken over the leaderboard from Ubuntu at Distrowatch as the most downloaded distro, I was keen to try it out. PCLinuxOS2007 is a solid and eyecatching option and it’s easy to see why it’s battling with Ubuntu for most downloaded status at Distrowatch.
itbusiness.ca: Freemind is a free mind mapping application written in Java that will help anyone who plans projects, for example: developers, writers, conference presenters, and students. Beyond planning, it can be used to assist decision making, organize information, and aid problem solving.
Linux Today: For the record, (and I realize that I might be opening myself to calls of "naive") I am not 100 percent convinced that this pioneering patent infringement lawsuit is a direct result of Microsoft's planning.
junauza.blogspot.com: A few days ago, Ubuntu announced the Release Candidate version 7.10 of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Gobuntu, and Xubuntu codenamed "Gutsy Gibbon". I downloaded Xubuntu Gutsy RC right away to see what’s up with the new version. I then tested it to find out if it’s compatible enough with the old laptop. So after playing with the Gibbon, here’s my quick assessment.
kdedevelopers: So I replaced Kubuntu with openSUSE 10.3. All I can say is wow. I couldn't follow its development as I did with previous releases and tested only after the final version appeared. First I upgraded my desktop from 10.2 and it wasn't a pleasure as it made the system unbootable and I had to fix using a rescue console. But after having it running I was quite satisfied with it.

linux.com: Mandriva 2008.0, released this week, is the best version of Mandriva since 7.2. Mandriva was once known as the best distro for new users, while accommodating those more experienced. In its current incarnation, this is still so. 2008.0 is an exceptionally impressive release.
ubuntu.com: Yesterday we took a look at all the handy new features of X in Ubuntu 7.10 and today we turn to Fast User Switching which allows you to easily share your computer with others
Dana Blankenhorn: Many readers here define open source narrowly. It’s a business model, a development model, a way in which enterprise customers gain more power over their own IT. It’s all that, but it’s much more.
Penguin Pete: An amazing experience occurred when I began to run BSD. It was a Jedi event. I was jolted by something that suddenly stopped when I started BSD, something I hadn't been aware of until it was gone. I experienced a great calming in The Force; as if a million screaming, bitching voices suddenly shut the hell up!
openSUSE is a popular German Linux distribution that Distrowatch.com lists as one of the "top ten." Version 10.3 was released on October 4th. Underneath its new green artwork, the new version's improvements include cutting down the time it takes to reach the graphical login screen; speeding up and streamlining its package management utility; and making it easier for users to install software using a new "one-click install" process. There's a lot to like here.
polishlinux: KDE 4 is coming. It’s starting to look and behave mature enough to use it on a normal desktop. This article is a little introduction to what you might be expecting from the brand new KDE due later this year. Not waiting any longer I made my mind and I have updated the SVN and have run the cmake.
linux.com: Today, COR Entertainment is scheduled to release version 6.10 of Alien Arena 2007, the popular free software, 3-D, first-person shooter built atop id Software's Quake II engine, which was released under the GPL in 2001. The new release of Alien Arena comes with seven new arenas, a better arsenal of weaponry, and a new game mode for one-on-one duels.
opensuse news: Martin Lasarsch, the well-known openSUSE evangelist, gave us the great opportunity to let us know a little bit more about himself. You can’t miss this ‘People of openSUSE’ interview!
LinuxWorld: "Not a whole lot of changes since -rc9, although there's a few updates to mips, sparc64 and blackfin in there." Reading this release announcement, if we can even call it that, you'd never imagine that Torvalds was leading the evolution of software. The big question on which Torvalds is conspicuously silent is how the Linux community should respond to the Microsoft threat.
