linux.com: If Linux is hardly affected by viruses, why do system administrators use anti-virus software on their Linux email servers? Because an anti-virus scanner on a mail server can serve as another level of defense for Microsoft Windows desktop users. Linux provides several server-based anti-virus applications.
kernelTRAP: OpenBSD creator Theo de Raadt highlighted a recent commit to the NetBSD source tree saying, "if anyone had any doubt that our insistence on freedom was important, just read this."
dot.kde.org: With an avalanche of last-minute commits, the KOffice Google Summer of Code students finished yet another great Summer of Code. We had some very exciting projects this year, and most of them were as great a success as last year.

tuxtoday: So I had some issues getting USB-drives to work in both SUSE and Ubuntu.I actually had HUGE issues! So, in the search for another distro, someone on IRC recommended Vector Linux.
p2pnet: Are you a Linux user who’s feeling disadvantaged, ignored and unloved because you don’t have Microsoft’s Windows Genuine Advantage looking out for you? Be troubled no more.
iTWire: Recently I've been reading a lot about how well Ubuntu works on laptops, particularly when it comes to handling wireless connections - something that is generally a problem under Linux due to a number of factors, the primary one being the paucity of drivers for most cards.
The Open Source Advocate: I am confident that the future of Linux server administration will rely less on the command line, and that most server admins will use a GUI interface. To understand why this will happen, lets take a look at the success of Windows servers.
itmanagement.earthweb.com: Dell dropped their hat into the ring, perhaps prompting what could become a rush of other PC manufacturers and distributors wishing to enter into OEM deals with various Linux distributions. There have been a number of smaller companies that have worked within the Linux space for some time now.
the inquirer: FROM THE FLAMES, some of you seem to be a bit interested in the new open sauce flavours floating around. One more go at the sauces, and we will see if you like it. The three victims for this round of testing are Arklinux 2007.1, Damn Small Linux 4.0, and Sabayon Linux 3.4.
Dana Blankenhorn: I spent part of this morning seeking out open source rumors. None of the top 200 open source stories at Google News dealt with rumors, but the blogosphere had a few.
apaku: This is just my personal impressions from the 10/15 minutes I played with the current KDE4 desktop yesterday. I’m completely aware that there’s still 2 months of work happening and that KDE 4.0 is not primarily targeted at the broad user base that KDE is. Buut...
iTWire: For a computer, software content is king. Programmable computers began the home computer revolution over 20 years ago. The modern revolution is Open Source software, giving immeasurable utility with no cost or risk. Sadly a lot goes under the radar but here are five sleeper apps really worth checking out.
mitchelaneous.com: No, that’s not an offer to dance but one of the best desktop OS (operating systems) out there today that runs on Linux instead of Windows. Interested?
c|net blogs: Hearing OLPC representative Walter Bender repeat the claim of "10 or 12 hours" of battery life "with heavy use" reminded me of an open question from the last few times I blogged about the OLPC project. What is the battery life of this machine, really?

linux.com: Perhaps Creative Commons' LiveContent 1.0 CD would work better if more clearly defined. LiveContent is a sampler of free content and free software, but this purpose seems lost in a cloud of rhetoric, even to project members. The CD suffers from lackluster presentation, a mediocre assortment of samplers, and a lack of explanation.
François Bancilhon: The Mandriva weather has been a little rough over the past quarters, which might have added to the general mood. So it will soon be time to cheer you up with some good news. We have been kind of quiet recently, which does not mean we have not been active.
OSWeekly: I have been a fan of PC-BSD for sometime now; however, it was after discovering this page that had me disturbed. Using PC-BSD's awesome packaging methods, the webmaster of this site has apparently packaged some applications that might cause some licensing concerns.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: "Pencils down" marks the end of the Summer of Code for 2007. Python highlighting support, with work on a new, handwritten lexer in KDevelop. A data engine and associated Plasma applet for KGet. Start of the Plasma-based Wikipedia and Service Info applets for Amarok 2.
