Mark Shuttleworth: This is a call for developers who are interested in pushing the limits of content and code freedom. The goal is to provide a cleaner and easier to maintain base for projects like gNewSense.
The Jem Report: Ubuntu is open source, right? Most of it is, small parts of it are not. Even though it ships with some proprietary hardware drivers (a necessity in the desktop computing world, no matter what the hardliners say), one thing stands out as oddly hypocritical is the fact that Ubuntu's development tools -- collectively called Launchpad -- are proprietary. Even worse are the company's explanations for why Launchpad is proprietary.
Information Week: Novell plans to continue to distribute the latest versions of open source software to customers who purchased its Linux product through Microsoft, even though Microsoft itself has decided to make parts of the software unavailable, a Novell spokesman said.
Bonding is the same as port trunking. In the following I will use the word bonding because practically we will bond interfaces as one. Bonding allows you to aggregate multiple ports into a single group, effectively combining the bandwidth into a single connection.
linux.com: "Siag, it sucks less!" This is the slogan for Siag Office. This and the self-effacing name for the Siag Office Word Processor, Pathetic Writer, might leave you thinking that this office suite is a mere plaything, a university student's cobbled-together programming assignment. But don't be fooled by first impressions.
phoronix: CentOS, the popular community Linux distribution based upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux, has been at version 5.0 since April of this year, but joining the CentOS 5.0 fleet today is the LiveCD. The CentOS 5.0 LiveCD is based upon CentOS 5.0
InformationWeek blog: Linux creator Linus Torvalds said the authors of a new software license expected to be used by thousands of open source programmers are a bunch of hypocrites and likened them to religious fanatics.
Techy Stuff: A recent article on 10 Advantages of Ubuntu over Vista drew ridicule because “Linux doesn’t support games”. While I knew this was only a half truth, I decided to blog about it myself.
kernelTRAP: Following the release of the 2.6.22 kernel, Andrew Morton posted a list of a wide range of patches that are in his -mm kernel, summarizing for each his plans as to whether or not they will be pushed upstream for inclusion in the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel.
There are some minor glitches in the distribution, but overall DreamLinux is a really good distribution. I have burnt 10 CDs to distribute to friends and recommend to to grab your own iso from the site and enjoy linux.
ZDNet: The IT systems used to support next year's Olympic Games in Beijing, China, will incorporate open source software, but the dominant platform will be Microsoft Windows, according to IT services vendor Atos Origin.
vnunet: Linux vendor Mandriva now has a presence in Britain after the formation of Mandriva UK Limited. The company said it aims to provide local distribution of Mandriva Linux and other open-source applications throughout the UK.
bloggernews.net: So my windows disks are in Chicago, and will probably arrive later this month. So what do you do? No problem… here pirating is an everyday thing. So instead I loaded Ubuntu (Linux) and voila, go put that in your hat and eat it Bill Gates.
wiki.mandriva.com: Mandriva Linux 2008 is coming this September. Once again, Mandriva Linux 2008 will come with the latest release of GNOME, 2.19. The latest stable KDE 3 release will be included, 3.5.7. KDE 4 will be available as an experimental preview.
All About Linux: OpenMoko is a GNU/Linux based open software development platform. What this means for the lay person is that using OpenMoko software development kit, phone manufacturers will be able to bring out mobile phones which have more or less the same features of the now widely known iPhone from Apple and much more - all this under an Open license powered by GNU.
This tutorial shows how you can use Compiz, Beryl, and Metisse on a Mandriva 2007 Spring (Mandriva 2007.1) desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card). With Compiz, Beryl, and Metisse, you can make your desktop use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube (although the desktop cube is not available on Metisse).
linux.com: Slackware Linux is the oldest surviving Linux distribution, and still one of the most popular. Last week's release of version 12.0 is a milestone for the Slackware team, as it marks Slackware's first use of a default 2.6.x kernel. Other new components include KDE 3.5.7, Xfce 4.4.1, Xorg 7.2.0, and GCC 4.1.2. Slackware is now nearing the bleeding edge without sacrificing stability, making this truly an exciting release.
ITtoolbox blogs: In my previous posting "Linux VS Windows usability" I rambled on about the two operating systems and at how similar they really are. I also alluded that while the interface is similar it is what is underneath in the basic design that really makes the difference. I want to expand on that.

The awards recognize open source projects which not only have the most supportive community following, but also those which the SourceForge.net community's members believe are built with the highest quality, productivity and ingenuity.
Paul Murphy: Today, for example, the people you hired because they knew Debian Linux might be wrestling with Ubantu - and the SuSe 10 experts you brought in last year will probably be transitioning to some other distribution by this time next year.
