infoworld blogs: Since its release this June, GPLv3 certainly seems to have taken on the role of baby Damien within the open source licensing world. Sure, it's cute and cuddly at first glance, but behind its deep blue eyes lurk pure and unhinged evil ... at least if you believe the recent Evans Data survey.

And: Cheap laptops still MIA
ruminations: The next two days I will focus a bit more on the gaming experience under PC-BSD. My main focus is: (1) Will the PBIs run under this latest release of PC-BSD? and (2) Are the games running with a decent speed?
techwhack.com: If you are an Ubuntu fan you would have tried out their ShipIt service which delivers the Ubuntu CDs for free at your door step. The service is currently down as they are preparing to start the shipment of the upcoming release of Ubuntu which would be Ubuntu 7.10.

linux.com: How does the current version of OpenOffice.org (OOo) compare with Microsoft Office in its ability to produce slide presentations? To see how the two programs compare now, I installed Microsoft Office 2007 and OpenOffice.org 2.3, and went through the process of designing a slide show from start to finish. To my surprise, the results were more decisive than in my last comparison.
softpedia: A new Compiz release was created by Danny Baumann, Compiz's main developer. Its release was announced yesterday and the new version is 0.6.0.
the inquirer: UBER geek Linus Torvalds is on track to win this year's Dr Spinola cudmugeon of the year award after dubbing people who disagreed with him as "wanking around".

I still maintain my positive stance on the emerging Linux OS. I have never held a more absolute position toward any other Linux Desktop OS.
