networkworld: Reacting to what must be nothing short of unbridled envy at the recent uptick in the fortunes of other Linux distros such as SLED and Ubuntu, M. Spevack is asking why Red RHAT’s version wasn’t chosen instead in surveys taken by the hardware manufacturers Dell and Lenovo.
OSWeekly: Many of you may not realize this if you are new to the Linux world, but there are other browsers out there beside Firefox. It's a powerful browser, yet with it becoming more and more popular, exploits are sure to begin turning up. Today, we will be looking at alternative browsers that are for Linux only.
computerworld: If the One Laptop Project keeps its promises, the small green US$100 laptop could very well revolutionise teaching in developing nations. Computerworld Denmark asked Jan Soelberg, an expert from the school of education at the University of Aarhus, to try the computer.

OSWeekly: In the last hour, I have read two completely different articles on Windows users, why they use Windows and how Linux could prevent further piracy. Each piece had its merits, but I still believe that most Linux users simply do not get what Windows users are looking for in an OS.
DPofD: GPRename has been around since 2001, is quite stable and still very much alive today. At the start of 2007, it was ported from the deprecated GTK-Perl to the new GTK2-Perl and in mid 2007 the new 2.4 release is now GPL-3.
kernelTRAP: "Ahoy me laddies (and beauties)," Linux creator Linus Torvalds began, announcing the seventh release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel, "time for the traditional 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' kernel release!"

sfgate.com: Attorneys asked prospective Alameda County jurors in the murder trial of computer programmer Hans Reiser today whether they were comfortable hearing a circumstantial-evidence case in which the body of Reiser's alleged victim - his wife - has never been found.
The Guardian: Firefox, the browser that dared to challenge the supremacy of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, now claims a market share of nearly 20% in the UK and 30% in Germany. All of which makes it scandalous that the open source movement has not taken off in the UK as it has in other countries.
BBC: Speaking to BBC News, Dr Gordon Moore said that he expected the proposition that bears his name should continue "for at least another decade. Eventually, however, we're down approaching the dimensions of individual atoms and that's clearly as far as we can go down the path of shrinking dimensions."
IGN: The Korean GamePark GP2 handheld gaming platform has, over the years, developed a pretty sizable following of homebrew and emulation fanatics that appreciate the Linux-based handheld's openness and easy development environment. A new incarnation of the handheld was expected this fall, but today the news is out that the device will be launching a bit early.

Red Hat Mag: What’s a pirate’s favorite statistics language? Arrrrrrr! Since even Linus himself has been known to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, I thought you should have some tools to lead your pirate crew the open source way.
ruminations: Working with KDE for the last two weeks was enjoyable enough. I even decided to use KDE on my Debianized iMac. What I realize is that I have become pretty agnostic when it comes to the graphical desktop. I hardly care whether it is Windows, GNOME, KDE or Mac OS X. I do care about applications and what i can do with them. So, why bother with installing GNOME right now?
