coding horror: Every practicing programmer should read the Wikipedia article on software patents, if you haven't already. Many software companies are of the opinion that copyrights and trade secrets provide adequate protection against unauthorized copying of their innovations. However, the cost of developing a suitable portfolio of patents may be out of reach of many small software companies. If this sounds like a classic Mutually Assured Destruction arms race, that's because it is.
linux.com: The Firefox browser stores not only a user's bookmarks, history, saved forms, and usernames and passwords, but frequently also several extensions and themes.

gruman: Mandriva, on the heels of trying to gain popularity in the office environment has released a desktop that can rival its opponents like the Micorsoft sponsored Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) and RedHat's Fedora desktop.
DesktopLinux: Some people seem to have a short circuit in their minds when they try to explain why Windows has such an enormous desktop market share. Some of them have the delusion that Windows is technically better than the competition. No, Microsoft wins because it does whatever it needs to do to win. If that means strong-arming the PC companies, so be it. If that means breaking the law, that's fine too.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Plasma continues to mature, with improvements to the Twitter applet (and the creation of a complementary data engine), and the adoption of a common visual style for Plasmoids, and the integration of support for SuperKaramba applets through the creation of the SuperKaramba Plasmoid.

teambio: So it’s been two weeks since I started using Ubuntu 7.04. I have to say that it has been a very interesting experience so far. To say that it has been easy and seamless would be a lie. However, I have to say that I’ve been able to do 99% of the things that I set out to do. Now that I’ve spent some time digging into the system I wanted to write a follow-up piece to my initial review.
linuxappfinder: I recently got a BlackBerry Curve for work, and being a Linux user I was immediately interested in getting them to work together. The bad news is that RIM doesn't make a driver for Linux. The good news is that you can still get them to work together anyway. Here's how.
