Linux Today: Like most of you, I was more than a little surprised when Linspire decided to join the Microsoft patent protection ring. I wrote some scary predictions about how all of these deals were going to cast a perceptual shadow on the "non-protected" Linux distributions.
NewsForge.com: Earlier this week we launched a revamped version of Linux.com that combines the best of NewsForge and Linux.com, along with new features such as forums and introductory material for new Linux users. Please visit Linux.com for the latest news and features.

allaboutubuntu: I’ve finally had a chance to run my Ubuntu PC from Dell. I can see why the systems aren’t quite ready for all users. But it’s clear to me that Ubuntu will be able to serve a large segment of the consumer population. In fact, Ubuntu is better than Windows in at least five areas. Here they are.
pimpyourlinux: You’ve downloaded and installed Linux, but now you realize that you can’t play movies on it! This article will show you how to not only get your DVD player working in Ubuntu, but also how to get your favorite codecs.

Dana Blankenhorn: Everyone knows Moore’s Law, the idea that chip complexity can double every year or two. Fewer acknowledge Moore’s Second Law, which is that development costs rise alongside this complexity.
Irfan’s /root: KDE’s default sound subsystems, aRts (Analog realtime synthesizer) has been part of KDE since ages. I really appreciate the quality of lots of software it comes with, however aRts is a real disappointment.
phoe6 @ livejournal: I was almost about to give up on Ubuntu, because after I installed the Fiesty, I was not able to download the packages from Repositories due to some proxy authentication issue. Tried various things for a week and when could not go any step further, I had thought let me get back to Fedora.
toptechnews: I've not been able to find anything that meets all of the necessary desktop criteria, but things are beginning to change. The newest releases of open-source operating systems and apps are almost good enough. I believe that 2008 will be the year when the open-source desktop reaches the point where a nonengineer can install and use it effectively.
polishlinux: This April Mandriva presented its new distribution called Spring. Despite the fact that it is “only” 2007.1 it has changed a lot since 2007.0. Changes can be seen everywhere — starting from installation through chosen applications till the 3D desktops.
