betanews: Yesterday, Reuters scored an aggregation coup by pairing "Linux" and "Microsoft" with the verb "counterattack," resulting in a story that rocketed to the top of the hit list without a beat or a melody to it, and whose inaccurate derivatives were snatched up even by local television.
GCN: Should the Linux kernel be licensed under the new version of the Gnu General Public License, or should it stick with the old version? The question has sparked a heated debate on the mailing list for Linux kernel developers.
IDG via PC World: Red Hat Linux has received a new level of security certification that should make the software more appealing to some government agencies.

InforWorld Blogs: Several people have asked when I think Red Hat is going to do a IP protection deal with Microsoft and the answer is that I don't think they will. Certainly not while Microsoft continues to be light on facts and heavy on hyperbole. There is one simple reason why not to do a deal with Microsoft.
shift+backspace: The most recent release from the MEPIS crew is SimplyMEPIS 6.5, which was released on April 4th, 2007. In all of my Linux and various distribution readings, I rarely hear about MEPIS; however, it is clearly popular as the MEPIS distribution.
lxpages blog: The Linux filesystem is a complex and the first thing that most new users shifting from Windows will find confusing is navigating the Linux filesystem. The second thing is that not too many people are familiar with how the filesystem works or know how to troubleshoot if any problems arise.

rodtempleton: After talking about it for awhile, last night I disconnected my drive with Vista installed on it and reconnected a 30GB Maxtor drive which I then installed Ubuntu Linux on from the live CD.

LoCo About Ubuntu!: In my usual "Linux hopping" travels from distro to distro, I sometimes stretch outside the Ubuntu family of distros. Recently, I have gone between PCLinuxOS to Fedora, and then back to Ubuntu. These are my notes from using both, and my comparison to Ubuntu 7.04.
groklaw: I found a video on the Novell-Microsoft Interop Ability page that clears up for me at least part of what Microsoft wants from deals like the deal with Novell. Just what is that bridge Microsoft has had with academia, I wondered? What does Microsoft have in mind for Open Source businesses that sign up for that bridge?

And: What's behind Microsoft's open-source deals?
LinuxJournal: I'm a big fan of Richard Stallman and his work – even though, the first time I interviewed him, he proceeded to criticise my questions before answering them, not a journalistic experience I'd had before. Without his vision and sheer bloody-mindedness in the face of indifference and outright hostility, we would not have the vast array of free software we enjoy today.
/home/liquidat: Today I saw that a drugstore where I bought a CD was using a KDE based system for managing there CDs and DVDs. This lead to the question how many hidden KDE installations - and Linux installations in general - are out there.
CyberNetNews: Besides for those features there is one thing that I am super excited to see implemented, and that’s a user interface (UI) for managing dual monitors. Everyday I hook my laptop up to a 24" external monitor so that I can get a dual-screen setup.
Raiden's Realm: The great new operating system promised by Microsoft turns out to be a disaster. I've been going against the multi-billion dollar standard by pressing businesses to take a serious look at open source software. I use Linux almost exclusively for my own business operations.
kernelTRAP: A lengthy debate that began with a suggestion to dual license the Linux kernel under the GPLv2 and the GPLv3 [story] continues on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Throughout the ongoing thread Linux creator Linus Torvalds has spoken out on the GPLv2, the upcoming GPLv3, the BSD license, Tivo, the Free Software Foundation, and much more.
tech trouble?: There were some online services available now that can provide you Desktop like environment (some call it WebOS) through a web browser - with applications and storage spaces - that you can customize and access anytime from any computer and from any where in the world!
tipotheday.com: The GIMP. It sounds more like something you'd drag out of a dark box in your hidden underground lair than an image manipulation program -- and yet, someone, somewhere, thought it was a great name. It still secures first place on my list, but we'll move on to the more interesting ones now.
Register: Novell is gunning for a chunk of the office market share from Microsoft with the release of its open workgroup suite for small businesses.
computerworld: Trucking firm Ryder System Inc. is one of ThinkFree Inc.'s best customers. It is also a maddening example of the obstacles that ThinkFree and its pioneering founder and CEO, T.J. Kang, face trying to convince CIOs that its online office software is ready for big business.
the Inquirer: IF ANYONE CAN TAKE ON MICROSOFT it's Google. Both companies make squillions out of doing not much at all, which is the key to having your share price sit on top of the roof.
