groklaw: Hot off the presses: Judge Dale Kimball has issued a 102-page ruling [PDF] on the numerous summary judgment motions in SCO v. Novell. Here is what matters most: [T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.
linux.com: Linus Torvalds is often described as an open source champion, interested in licensing only insofar as it affects his ability to share code and improve software more quickly. However, his real position is more complicated -- and to some, perhaps surprising.
kernelTRAP: "BACK UP ANY IMPORTANT DATA," began the Linux 0.10 installation instructions. "Linux accesses your hardware directly, and if your hardware differs from mine, you could be in for a nasty surprise. Doublecheck that your hardware is compatible:
arstechnica: Last year, BitTorrent Inc. acquired the company that makes uTorrent, one of the most popular BitTorrent clients available on the Windows platform. The next major version of the official BitTorrent client—which is currently in beta—is based on the closed-source uTorrent client rather than the open-source BitTorrent reference implementation.
linux-watch: According to multiple sources close to Linux distributor Linspire, former CEO Kevin Carmony was not the only executive to leave Linspire at the end of July.

internetnews: There was a time when selling Linux (or even just writing about it) was an evangelical endeavor. Users needed to be sold on Linux's benefits and, more importantly, assured that it actually worked. Not so at LinuxWorld San Francisco 2007.
Caitlyn Martin: Articles about Linux and mainstream Linux news tends to be dominated by the big Linux distributions. In the past year a number of medium sized and small distros have lept past the big players among Linux distributions, offering single CDs with lots of apps, excellent hardware support, speedy performance, and relatively few bugs.
cyberorg: When guys like Richard Stallman are fighting to maintain the freedom of software developers and users, compiz-fusion project goes and picks a paid, closed source and proprietary software for it’s community forum.

LinuxJournal: Last year's winner in this category, the Nokia 770, has a younger sibling, and, as oft happens, the kid takes the cake. Nokia's N800, the follow-up to the 770, is smaller, lighter, better-looking, faster and has a larger brain.
linux.com: According to its Web site, LyX is "the first WYSIWYM document processor," coupling a familiar word processing front end to the powerful LaTeX typesetting engine. Last month's new version 1.5 release includes a revamped interface, big improvements in multilanguage support, and enhanced tools for incorporating math, tables, and outlines.
itmanagement: With Ubuntu installed and ready to rock, it's time to get started using your new desktop. This chapter is excerpted from the Second Edition of The Official Ubuntu Book.
OneAndOneIs2: There's an interesting interview with Sun's CEO, Jonathan Schwartz, at news.com. It basically sums up the counter-argument to the ever-popular FUD statement "FOSS is bad, because you can't make money by giving the software away" in one sentence.
Alexander Wolfe: It's been a good news, bad news kind of week for Linux. On the one hand, some supporters remain deluded that the open-source operating system has a legit chance of taking on Vista. At the same time, Novell CEO Ron Hovespian took a hard look at the Linux landscape and came to a conclusion not to different from my recent rant about their being way too many distros.

engadget: For those of you who've recently placed a Dell laptop order only to find yourself high and dry on shipment, rest assured you're not alone -- not by a long shot. Of course, there have been problems with shipment on the XPS M1330 for some time -- customers who've placed orders for the Inspiron are also feeling the burn.
Plumbing Life's Depths: I got a simple spike test done for PyCairo usage. Mostly this is just me figuring out how PyCairo works and how it and PyGTK interact. It basically feels like a cut-down version of OpenGL... which makes me want to reach for OpenGL when I'm working with it.
Raiden's Realm: One of the more useful, and lesser known sections of the KDE menu is the System section. In it is a collection of very useful applications to simplify your user and administrative experience. SO let's look at each of these and how they can be of benefit to you.
