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.
CNNMoney: SourceForge, Inc. today announced the finalists of its second annual SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards. 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.
ZDNet: Companies in the Asia-Pacific region are warming up to open source software for practical rather than religious reasons. According to a recent IDC study, businesses in Australia, China, India and Korea reported that 25 percent to 70 percent of their software assets are based on open source.
PCWorld: Firefox 3.0's first beta has been delayed at least six weeks, Mozilla Corp. engineers said Sunday, and it now won't appear until the middle of September.
Matt Asay: I honestly could count the number of employees on one hand that had any understanding and experience of open source. Brad Nicholes was one of them. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Brad. He was the voice of experience on Novell's Open Source Review Board. Some of the insight below is among the best we've had on The Open Road.
Red Hat Mag: Today, Sunday, is the first day of Red Hat High, and I’m expecting 47 kids. It’s 4:00 in the afternoon, and orientation starts at 4:30. Of those 47 kids, how many have arrived so far? Three.
kernelTRAP: In the ongoing effort to reduce the power consumption of the linux kernel and take better advantage of the tickless kernel patch, Stephen Hemminger posted a patch to make it possible to unload the keyboard blink driver.
The Linux kernel process scheduler, as you know it, has been completely ripped out and replaced with a completely new one called Completely Fair Scheduler (CFS). How fair it will be, remains to be seen, but in the meantime here's what its original creator Ingo Molnar has to say on the subject.
The Linux Movement: There is this fairly new program called Closure. As for features Closure really doesn't do a whole lot, but what it does it does well. Basically when Closure is just an updated look for the log out menu.
The Open Source Advocate: Developers are the backbone of every open source community. Without them, the project would not exist. Open source applications need to be converted into a package format before they can be included in a Linux distribution.
freesoftware mag: When we consider the situation Microsoft finds itself in with regard to the GNU General Public License (GPL), it is important to consider how one determines when someone has accepted the GNU GPL and, hence, when someone is actually bound by its terms.
CyberNetNews: Modern laptops continue to get more powerful and smaller in size, but we can’t forget about the predecessors that led to the notebooks that we have today. PCWorld put together an article outlining the top-10 most important laptops of all time where they outline the significance of each one. So what laptops made the list?

Now here in this article we look at a number of really good applications that are not shipped by default with Ubuntu as well as instructions on installing them.
polishlinux: Some time ago I saw a chocolate bar made with Adobe Photoshop somewhere on the Internet. I thought that Gimp can’t do worse than and I got myself to work. It seemed to be quite easy and here is the result in 28 steps.
Matt Asay: Savio has had some interesting posts lately crunching numbers related to open source investments and, most currently, the FSF's financial ability to litigate GPLv3. In both cases, though, I think he's getting a bit too attached to the calculator and detached from reality.
