matt asay: OK, so sometimes I'm wrong. Miguel de Icaza called out an error I made in criticizing Novell for its open-source strategy. I admit that I find it hard to see beyond Novell's patent pact with Microsoft but, as Miguel pointed out in a string of emails between us today, this leaves out a lot that Novell does well.
kmandla.wordpress.com: In a lot of the same ways I liked Wolvix, I like Vector Linux. On the other hand, there’s enough that’s different that I probably won’t keep it. Part of that might be a sophomore slump having just seen Wolvix in action: It’s a hard act to follow.
kernelTRAP: "In private discussions, Solar Designer proposed to restrict the ability to map the NULL address to CAP_RAW_IO capable processes only. The idea behind this was to prevent 'normal' users from trying to exploit NULL dereferences in the kernel which have not been discovered yet."
linux.com: As noted in the update to our review of Paterva Evolution, a personal data mining tool, Roelof Temmingh has removed the binaries for the application after having received legal threats over its use. In an email on the Paterva announcement's mailing list over the weekend, Temmingh revealed more about why the binaries had to be removed and unveiled his plans for future work on the project.
Motho ke motho ka botho: For the next week, most (if not all) of the UF.org staff have transmogrified into miniature renditions of everyone’s favorite superhuman being, Chuck Norris.
planet.sabayonlinux: Ok, miniEditions are on the way. I’m working on them since Friday (eventually!). They won’t support Equo yet, since I am actively working on something. I’m just trying the latest unstable release [of portage] and the first impression is: “eventually something good!”.
arabianbusiness: Regional Linux users received a boost today as open source leader Red Hat announced the opening of a regional support centre for the Middle East.
arstechnica: In a positive effort to ease the commute of its employees, Microsoft has announced a new bus route that will reach to various local regions. Set to begin later this month, a total of five routes will stretch to Seattle, Issaquah, Mill Creek, Sammammish, and Bothell.

phoronix: This past week AMD raised the Linux graphics bar by not only announcing their new fglrx graphics driver, which delivers Radeon HD 2000 support, immense performance improvements, and AIGLX, but it was accompanied by an announcement that they will be delivering specifications to the X.Org development community. One of the common questions that has since come up is what will NVIDIA do in response.
ruminations: The fresh install of PC-BSD was a very simple task. There was no need to make backups of important files and under Vmware the creation of new virtual computer is simply a matter of following the step in the wizard. I decided not to use disk 2 to install for instance Firefox or OpenOffice.org, but just to install the basic system that disk 1 provides. That didn’t take long.
desktoplinux: Lenovo finally started shipping SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop on its T-Series ThinkPads for its mainstream business users. Now, the company appears to be considering offering another Linux, very possibly Ubuntu, for the enthusiast market.

iTWire: An intrusion detection system – or IDS – is a high-tech burglar alarm, keeping a watchful eye on your computer and alerting when computer or network activity indicates unauthorised or malicious activity. An IDS is a must-have app, and Snort is rapidly becoming the tool of choice.
etbe.coker.com.au: A common question is how to compare Fedora  and Debian  in terms of recent updates and support. I think that Fedora Rawhide and Debian/Unstable are fairly equivalent in this regard, new upstream releases get packaged quickly, and support is minimal.
writelarge.com: The other barier to GoogleOS, at least for me, is the GOOGLE IS WATCHING YOU factor. I fear Google. I don’t feel like Google is as honest as I’d like them to be. Would Goobuntu be nothing more than a widgeted up install of Ubuntu that spies on you?
phoronix: The first release candidate for Copernic, or perhaps better known as the codename for Mandriva Linux 2008, has been released. Mandriva Linux 2008 includes GNOME 2.20, the Linux 2.6.22 kernel, Compiz Fusion, and XDG menu migration and XDG user directory system.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Part of my motivation in jumping around so much is to sniff out the general state of other XFCE distributions, in case I’m driven by a wild urge to ditch Xubuntu altogether, and move in a different direction.
drobe.co.uk: An ambitious initiative to eventually run RISC OS desktop software on Linux-powered PCs took a step closer to reality this month. Issues with the user interface code have been addressed, and a bootable CD is being prepared to demonstrate the system's abilities.
nashuatelegraph.com: So, we’ve installed Linux on an older Celeron laptop in an effort to breathe new life into the old boy. Here are our recommendations for Window users who, like us, are Linux newbies:
