computerworld: In January, two of the most established Linux and open-source advocacy groups, the Open Source Development Lab and the Free Standards Group, merged, forming the San Francisco-based Linux Foundation.

wired.com: After years of being relegated to server racks and the desktops of ultrageeks, Linux is finally making some headway as a viable alternative to Windows on the consumer desktop.
penguin pete: Bleah! More glossy crystal buttons and mirrored text! If you're anything like me, your reaction these days to the Web 2.0 aesthetic style is a cry of dismay and the gesture of your finger in your mouth in a gagging motion. Ten years from now, the world will look back on the currently popular art style as "the disco era of the web".
Matt Asay: I received a sad piece of news today in my email: Mark Webbink is retiring from Red Hat, effective at the end of August. He will be missed.

liquidat: The family around kde-look.org grew again and launched opendesktop.org as a central place for developers, artists and other contributors. To round up the entire collection of family members gtk-apps.org and cli-apps.org were launched as well.
Beranger: Based on the HUGE interest (hype?) that XO has acquired (possibly more than Xbox 360, Wii, the iPhone and Harry Potter altogether), deciding to offer retail sales at 2x or 3x the mass-production price (after they repeatedly said there won't be any retail sales at all!) would be a tremendously profitable business, with a 100% to 200% profit margin!
ZDNet: The efforts of Microsoft to pressure the Linux community over alleged and unspecified patents is akin to "patent terrorism", according to a local executive for Sun Microsystems.
Lex Loci Linux: I have learned that I don't have to be tied to Windows anymore. Most of what I do, does not require Windows, so it's much more secure than my Windows base applications.
Scott MacGregor: Mitchell’s blog talks about the need to find a new organizational home for Thunderbird. I wanted to share my thoughts about why we need to do something, provide more detail about what David and I feel would be best for Thunderbird and its users, and to solicit feedback from the community for their thoughts and ideas.
blog.notsosoft.net: Hey folks, so I don’t know how many of you lovely happy people have been running the latest development version of Ubuntu, codenamed Gutsy Gibbon. Gosh, I’ve been running it since its second week in existence, and I must say I’m well pleased.
mozillalinks: French National Assembly logoAs announced last year, open source software loaded laptops are now being delivered to members of the French National Assembly.
kernelTRAP: In a recent lkml thread, the idea of getting the entire Linux kernel history into a git repository was discussed. Linus Torvalds noted, "I actually tried to get something like this together back in the BK days and early in the SCO saga. It was pretty painful to try to find all the historic trees and patches - they're all in different format, and some of them are unreliable."
Washington Post: After months of knowing the One Laptop Per Child project's XO computer only through pictures and blog postings, I got to spend an hour or so playing with a couple of test units last Thursday -- courtesy of two D.C.-area residents involved with this effort.
arstechnica: The Ubuntu Live exhibit hall was small, but a very nice assortment of companies and organizations were present, including Intel, Sun, the Free Software Foundation, IEEE, OpenMoko, and System 76.
ZDNet Blogs: Would you try a $150 laptop powered by Fedora? Sure you would. And apparently so are a lot of other folks. A Swedish company called Medison has unveiled a laptop called the Celebrity. Medison’s laptop is the latest in a race to the bottom of the pricing barrel.
Raiden's Realm: CentOS, a derivative of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, was started back in 2002 with its first beta versions appearing in 2003. CentOS is designed to be a high end server OS that runs on a wide variety of different architectures, including x86, Intel IA-64 (Itanium 64-bit), x86-64, PowerPC/32, IBM Mainframe, Alpha, and SPARC. Given all this versatility, and its roots as a server OS, some may be lead to ask the question, “Does it make a good desktop distribution?” We’re about to find out.
We are getting ready for the GIMP 2.4 release. Most of the outstanding issues have been resolved or will be resolved soon. You can get a snapshot of current development by downloading the source code for GIMP 2.3.19 from the usual places.
The Linux Movement: So the Compiz Fusion blog hasn't been updated in a while, but now they have and with some new effects. The first effect is a bit funky, and I probably will not use it. But I guess it would be fun to play around with. The second new effect is the one I am excited for! But I will save the best for last.
