information week blogs: There are many things that Linux does well. There are many things that still need work. But they’re not always the obvious things, either.
beranger: I am sick of the articles of the kind "Top 27 cool apps to install on Ubuntu"... ...so I only have my own Top 1:
c|net: Another low-cost Linux-based laptop that you'll soon be able to buy is the Eee PC from Asus. Pricing for this machine, originally expected to start at $199, is now rumored to begin at $260 when the machine goes on sale later this month, with high-end models coming in around $400.
Also: Will low-cost OLPC or Eee PCs bring changes to the notebook industry ecosystem?
And: Cheap laptops still MIA
ruminations: The next two days I will focus a bit more on the gaming experience under PC-BSD. My main focus is: (1) Will the PBIs run under this latest release of PC-BSD? and (2) Are the games running with a decent speed?
techwhack.com: If you are an Ubuntu fan you would have tried out their ShipIt service which delivers the Ubuntu CDs for free at your door step. The service is currently down as they are preparing to start the shipment of the upcoming release of Ubuntu which would be Ubuntu 7.10.

And: An interview with aysiu
linux.com: How does the current version of OpenOffice.org (OOo) compare with Microsoft Office in its ability to produce slide presentations? To see how the two programs compare now, I installed Microsoft Office 2007 and OpenOffice.org 2.3, and went through the process of designing a slide show from start to finish. To my surprise, the results were more decisive than in my last comparison.
softpedia: A new Compiz release was created by Danny Baumann, Compiz's main developer. Its release was announced yesterday and the new version is 0.6.0.
the inquirer: UBER geek Linus Torvalds is on track to win this year's Dr Spinola cudmugeon of the year award after dubbing people who disagreed with him as "wanking around".
Also: Other Kernel Headlines
opensuse news: With this last article the Sneak Peeks series comes to an end for this release. But don’t worry: it’s tightly packed with an extra share of information on the latest openSUSE 10.3 goodies! Today we’re going through all those things that either didn’t get the chance to have their own article, or are extra convenient small improvements that haven’t been properly covered.

ejabs.com/blog: Well ladies & gentlemen…it has been nearly 6 months since I installed & began working with PCLinuxOS, and I must say I am nothing but impressed. I still maintain my positive stance on the emerging Linux OS. I have never held a more absolute position toward any other Linux Desktop OS.

computerworld: TDT 3D has put together a comparison of six 3D modeling tools. Many readers got quite worked up about one of the tools, Blender 3D 2.45. What was the problem? Certainly not the price.
ITtoolbox blogs: I have been slowly, piece by piece, assimilating components to create a new Locutus that will be more than just a bitzer but a new version of itself. I put all the parts together and, I was presented exactly what I had before. The same soul in a different body.
blogbeebe: It didn't take much to get rhea running smoothly again after the upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10. The first thing I did was ignore the shiny shiny and turn of all visual effects. That seemed to help tremendously. I then began to change the desktop elements into something I liked that also was reasonably light on the system:
searchcio.com.au: In these interviews, TechTarget ANZ's Ian Yates speak with analyst Kevin McIsaac from IBRS, Sun Microsystems' Laurie Wong and IBM's Phil MacLouchlainn. The hypothetical is the death of Unix at the hands of Linux.
