Reuters: Business software maker Novell Inc laid off 250 workers in the United States as part of an ongoing restructuring program to slash costs, company spokesman Bruce Lowry said on Friday.
Linux Today: Today I read an article that so completely blew my mind in its audacity. The article in question is actually the final part of a five-part series of blog entries on InfoWorld, entitled "Why Ubuntu (Still) Sucks." I read Kennedy's final piece in the series, and realized that some of us, myself included, were suckers in a game designed to make Linux advocates look foolish.
enterpriselinuxlog.blogs: The OpenDocument file format isn’t really something we cover a lot here, but from time to time I like to check in on it for no other reason than Simon Phipps from Sun Microsystems said a “Digital Dark Age” would descend upon us all if we didn’t get the world to adopt it. It’s also all about open standards, which for a guy who covers Linux and open source is a Siren’s Song.
penguin pete: Now that I've gotten all the fussing about the wrong-headed design changes last time, it's time to talk about the good news: the new features. There is no merely discussing this as "an upgrade". This is basically a reinvention of the Gimp as we knew it. Keep your hat on, as there is just too much to talk about to proceed through in any kind of orderly fashion.
odysseus.wordpress: As you all know, I am a HUGE PCLOS fan. It is my distro of choice. However, with Dell selling systems with Ubuntu pre-installed, I know I will be getting some calls about what to do. So, I figured I would install Ubuntu and see what I can figure out.
tech.blorge.com: Our little Penguin is getting dissed from a very unlikely source, InfoWorld. Randall Kennedy (InfoWorld) casts his pearls of misguided wisdom in his 5-part series "Why Ubuntu (Still) Sucks." Frankly, I am shocked that anyone can honestly and professionally write about something that they are so uninformed about. Whatever happened to "write what you know?"
desktoplinux: AMD and ATI weren't fibbing. The graphics company, now part of Advanced Micro Devices, has released high-end Catalyst 7.10 graphics drivers for the Linux desktop.
MaximumPC: The way the Linux world has been heating up this year, it was hard not to feel a pang of excitement over the release of the latest openSUSE. Well, it’s been a couple of weeks now, and I’ve given it the old college try, but I just can’t maintain any enthusiasm for this lackluster distro update.

linux devcenter: eWeek ran an article yesterday titled Linux Losing Market Share to Windows Server. The article quoted IDC sales figures. There is a real problem counting this way.
ubuntu tutorials: I have done a bit of testing for Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon” on some of our classroom machines this week. These machines are Dell Dimension 4600 with ATI Radeon video cards. Well, as has been my experience with ATI and nVidia with Linux they are a pain in the butt. …all ranting aside I wanted to share how I got them to work on Ubuntu 7.10.

polishlinux: Pacman is the default package manager for Arch Linux distribution. It is written for Arch Linux but its advantages were recognized also by other distribution developers (like Frugalware for example).
linuxdevices: Jon "maddog" Hall has made a featured guest appearance on a podcast series devoted to embedded Linux development. The veteran Linux promoter discusses binary kernel drivers, mixing proprietary and GPL software, and his "secret" retirement plan in the latest episode of TimeSys's Linux Radio podcast.
LWN: No Starch Press is holding an auction to benefit the FreeBSD Foundation. "Open source software depends on community support and the efforts of countless non-profits, like The FreeBSD Foundation."
adamw: Yep, the backports for the new Compiz and Compiz Fusion releases have hit the 2008 repositories.
linux-watch: Should we be ready, as Kent Brockman might put it, to "welcome our new Microsoft overlords," or are the IDC Quarterly Server Tracker figures not really reflecting the reality of how servers are used in businesses? I, for one, think that what IDC is measuring and what server operating systems people are really using are two entirely different things.
zdnet: Microsoft is reportedly working on running a stripped down version of Windows XP to run on the One Laptop Per Child Foundation's "US$100 laptop".
softpedia: The latest version of openSUSE Linux (10.3), which was released a couple of weeks ago, brings new features for the end user. Here follows a complete tutorial with screenshots.
zdnet blogs: The Gibbonfest continues. We've just had an Asus Eee in to look at - the £220 laptop that everyone who's seen it is going to buy. However, we inherited the Eee from another reviewer, who had accidentally nuked the Xandros Linux OS with which it had been supplied. Since we couldn't find the binaries to reinstall the Asus custom version of Xandros, and had Ubuntu 7.10 CDs sitting around, we thought we'd give the Gibbon another spin.
