information week: There is no Linux road map, per se. To give a glimpse of the process, here are seven areas of development worth watching, based on interviews with developers and kernel maintainers, and time on www.kernelnewbies.org.

liquidat: KDE 4 Beta 3, codename Cicker, was released some days ago. This release features a new panel and of course various bug fixes.

iTWire: For the past few years, I have found the Firefox browser update process to work pretty much flawlessly. But not with today's automatic update to version 188.8.131.52 (20 October 2007). Not a single one of the installed extensions that I have come to rely on are working, and I'm very annoyed. And it seems that I'm not the only one affected.
Gutsy is a definite step in the right direction with some welcome new features. It’s just a shame my upgrade didn’t go as smoothly as I wanted. Will I ever get desktop effects working?
Linux Today: There seems to be a disconnect between what users want for their computing needs, and what vendors think they want. A glaring example of this was made apparent to me at the Government Open Source Conference (GOSCON) earlier this week.
linux.com: How is the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) being received four months after its official release? Not well, if you believe the Evans Data survey released on September 25. However, those who concern themselves with licensing issues at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and at Palamida paint a different picture.
Raiden's Realm: For anybody who's ever used a computer, one of the things that many people find useful is keyboard shortcuts. In some cases they can allow you to do certain tasks much faster than you could with a mouse and thus they tend to be preferred by many for that exact reason.

Charles Babcock: What's Linux worth? The question has been a favorite of technology groups and cocktail party conversations ever since a character named Jeff V. Merkey offered $50,000 for a copy of Linux. The offer was a ploy. Merkey wanted it under the BSD license, which would have undermined the terms of the GPL. So he didn't get it. But we know, at least, that $50,000 proved to be a low bid.

LinuxJournal: When people talk about computer gaming these days, they invariably mean commercial games running on a Windows platform. Few people realize that Linux can be more than just a very good Web or file server. Even fewer people are aware of the many open-source or otherwise freely available games available for Linux.
eWeek: The fallout from the events leading up to the recent vote on whether or not to approve Microsoft's Office Open XML documents format as an ISO standard continues unabated, more than a month after the software maker conceded it had lost that vote.
GCN: While most security specialists would agree on the high quality of SELinux, proponents are arguing this framework is the only one that should be needed for the open-source operating system kernel. In fact, it would eliminate the need for the Linux Security Module, an open platform for outsider developers to build their own security frameworks for Linux. And this idea has raised the ire of Linux keeper Linus Torvalds.
techiemoe rants: Since around SuSE 10.0, I've not been as happy with SuSE for a number of reasons, most of them aesthetic. There is also that thing about a major corporate Linux still not including something as simple as MP3 support and buying into the Microsoft protection racket.
apaku.wordpress: As I’m pretty familiar with setting up debian nowadays I thought a change would be cool, so I decided to give Gentoo a shot.
blogs.the451group.com: Could Microsoft acquire an open source software vendor? Yes, is the answer, according to Steve Ballmer’s comments from the Web 2.0 Summit. However, I think there’s some reading between the lines to be done here. Microsoft could certainly buy an open source user, but at this stage an open source software vendor might be a step too far.
