CNet: The era of tax-free e-mail, Internet shopping and broadband connections could end this fall, if recent proposals in the U.S. Congress prove successful.
LinuxForum: If you are using public keys accessible to everyone, it is quite impossible to figure out whether someone of an organization is actually the person or specific organization sending a particular public key. For this purpose, the Public-Key Infrastructure or PKI was created.
Wired.com: Those Ubuntu-powered Dell machines are almost here. When Dell Computer announced it was making the Ubuntu operating system available as a preinstalled option, Linux geeks started hopping with joy. But what's in it for the non-geek computer user?
Also: Wal-Mart to begin selling Dell PCs
blogbeebe: I don't normally head over to Groklaw, but I did recently based on some other links and came across an article about a study conducted by Microsoft on how developers don't want the GLP, version 3, to "police patents." If you dig a little deeper into the study, the following facts about the study are exposed:
eWeek: Open-source software and the community around it does not need to be legitimized anymore as it is now legitimate, Red Hat CEO Matt Szulik said in the opening address at the Open Source Business Conference here on May 22.
Austin Acton: I've used Linux as my full-time desktop for seven years now. I have almost no reason to use Windows (other than stupid ExamSoft), and even when I do, I don't have much Windows software available. The one "hole" in my workflow has been OCR.
Red Herring: Officials from Microsoft and Novell took to the stage at the Open Source Business Conference on Wednesday to insist their recent cooperation agreement was good for the open source software community, but they were unable to convince everyone of their altruism.
Also: Microsft too busy to name Linux patents
Linux Journal: Through that summer, I happily submerged myself in learning GNU/Linux and putting the rudiments of a manual together as the company grew. Having just come off a two year stint documenting ever-changing human resources software, I couldn't believe that I was getting paid to enjoy myself so much.
saispo weblog: We are proud to announce the creation of a user community dealing with XFCE in Mandriva Linux. It's not a fork or stuff like that, the purpose is only improving the support and the integration of XFCE in Mandriva Linux.
Pimp your linux: Beryl is amazing. If you haven’t been hiding under a rock for the past year or so, you’ve heard of Compiz or Beryl. It’s Linux’s answer to Windows Vista’s Aero, Mac OS X’s Quartz Extreme, and Sun’s Looking Glass.
Seopher: I've lost count how many times I've been here; sitting infront of Kwrite as I review the latest and greatest release from the PCLinuxOS team: PCLOS2007. It's been a long time coming and I've been getting increasingly anxious to see how this highly anticipated release performs. Let's see shall we!
CNet: Facing criticism for its patent pact with Microsoft, Novell on Wednesday said it's supporting the Electronic Frontier Foundation's effort to challenge what it believes are bogus patents.
Jono Bacon: Jokosher 0.9 is out! Go and download it! If you are running Ubuntu it is as simple as installing two packages. Even easier on Gutsy, it is available in the repositories.
Linux.com: A lot of photos tagged with "HDR" turn up on Flickr and similar photo sharing sites these days. They're unnatural, surreal, sometimes crazy-looking images with the bright areas darkened, the dark areas brightened, and lots of saturation. You can get in on the craze under Linux using Qtpfsgui.
Thursday Night: While wasting time on teh Intarnets today, I came across this article on Linux Mint, an “improved” version of Ubuntu. However, the author of the article says, "Linux Mint comes preinstalled with is mintDisk that allows easy mounting of various partitions." This dialog is by no means “easy”.
opensourcelearning: We are working on a book about Ubuntu Linux that aims at Windows users who want to migrate to Linux or are considering it. The book is a step-by-step migration guide, but also want to provide a wide overview of what Linux has to offer.
linux devcenter blogs (Carla Schroder): Printing on any platform is part voodoo, part high blood pressure and hair loss, and part yay-it-works-it-works! Printing in Linux gets better all the time, especially when you find the right drivers.
DesktopLinux: Ever since I wrote "Why people really don't switch to Linux," I've been getting email and forum messages about why I'm right or why I'm wrong. One thing I didn't mention, though, was that really, in 2007, we're all already Linux users.
