covarr.blogspot: All over the place, I'm seeing websites and blogs claiming that everybody needs to switch to Linux. Some say Ubuntu, some say Debian, and some say Slackware, but they all seem to agree on Linux in general. I have created a list of five reasons why they are wrong.
credence: FVWM image pictureFVWM is one of the big mysteries of the open source world. It is an extremely versatile window manager, configurable up to every possible aspect. However, many beginners are somewhat scared because they do not know exactly how to go about learning to use FVWM. This is what we will talk about here.
Fabrice Facorat: Previously I talked about PackageKit, a DBUS system to handle packages, especially for the updates mecanism. So what's new on PackageKit front ?
Also: Expérimental X11 intel driver
kernelTRAP: "The elections for five of the ten members of the Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board[TAB] are held every year, currently the election will be at the 2007 Kernel Summit in a BOF session," James Bottomley, the TAB chair, announced on the Linux Kernel mailing list.
linux.com: In 2004 Daniel Robbins, the founder of Gentoo Linux, walked away from the project after creating the nonprofit Gentoo Foundation to handle its intellectual property (IP). In a blog post last month, Robbins wondered if he should take back the software, since it didn't appear the foundation was taking care of things. While Robbins didn't follow through on his thought, he raised an interesting question: Can someone convey intellectual property rights and then reclaim them?
freesoftware mag: On Sunday, August 5, 2007 Bush signed the revised Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) into law, in which the U.S. Congress spinelessly caved in and gave legal authority to the Bush administration to continue to intercept and spy on electronic communications. Then, on Thursday, August 16, 2007 the whole worldwide Skype network goes down. Coincidence?
Groklaw: Heise is reporting now that there is an uproar over how the OOXML vote was handled in Germany. That happened in Switzerland too, where two formal objections have been filed. Portugal was a bit of a mess too, from reports we've heard. Now the same kinds of complaints are being heard from Germany.

ITWeek: Vista is pricey, and its form and function are of course dictated by Microsoft. If you want full control over your Home Theater PC (HTPC), and don’t want to have to pay Microsoft for it, then Linux is a more than capable alternative base for building a system of your own.
Warren Woodford of MEPIS has announced Beta2 of SimplyMEPIS 7.0. The kernel in Beta2 is version 188.8.131.52 which is a security update from the Kernel Development Team. All of the MEPIS Assistants and the Installer were updated to fix minor problems reported by testers. Amarok was updated to version 1.4.7. There were minor updates to some KDE 3.5.7 packages.
Linux Journal: Okay, I'm not seriously suggesting Microsoft is paying off Netcraft to produce positive survey results (although this is certainly a standard operating procedure for Microsoft). But something is odd, if not rotten, in the state of Netcraft.
Jono Bacon: Guess what folks, its coming to that time again…you got it - Ubuntu Developer Summit time!!
raiden's realm: Sabayon Linux is a distribution that seeks to take the Linux desktop and put an artistic spin to it that other distributions don’t have. Their motto of “when art meets inspiration” speaks highly to this desire. But what makes Sabayon stand out from all the rest?
Motho ke motho ka botho: I never tried it because I couldn’t get past the chihuahua mascot, but I spun it up this afternoon, and Puppy Linux gets a huge gold star from me.
lkmltimes: Richard Ballantyne asked on LKML: “What file system that is already in the linux kernel do people recommend I use for my laptop that now contains a solid state disk?”
Dana Blankenhorn: This week a number of thinkers tried to pigeonhole open source inside political philosophy. Thankfully they all failed. Why do so many people try to play “capture the flag” with it?
engineering news: The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will start mass production of its first laptop model, the OLPC XO, in September, says chief technology officer Mary Lou Jepson.
theopensourceactivist: Sabayon is considered ‘close’ to Gentoo, but not necessarily ‘very close’ (atleast in my view). The reason for this is because Sabayon uses its own versions of some pretty major packages.
thecredence.com: Hardware compatibility was a major issue with Linux some years ago, but it's quite safe to say that we have gone past that point. Almost all major hardware components have Linux drivers available, and they can be used without much hassle. So lets build a Perfect Custom Linux PC.
linux.com: LightScribe technology, which allows users to etch labels directly onto CDs and DVDs, finally arrived on GNU/Linux in late 2006. LaCie LightScribe Labeler for Linux (4L) was released in October 2006, with Hewlett-Packard's LightScribe business unit releasing its own Simple Labeler a month later.
