bmighty.com: Over a year ago, I wrote a column about the small and midsize market and Linux. I argued that there was never a better time for smaller companies to consider Linux and open source software. The market didn't seem to move as quickly as I thought it should.
beranger: The most recent interview with Linus (by the publishing date) couldn't pass unnoticed: Linus Torvalds talks future of Linux. Torvalds looking naïve, mediocre and uninformed! It's at the same time: nice, intriguing, and outrageous.
newstatesman: Since that fateful day in Buenos Aires, I have been borrowing a laptop that runs a version of the free and open-source operating system Linux. And my Summer of Ubuntu has proved to me that it can handle all these tasks fabulously.

francis.giannaros.org: I’ve been interested in the way different distributions handle boot time lately, and with openSUSE’s recent and very impressive boot time improvements I thought I’d make a few extra comparative statistics using bootchart.
freesoftware mag: Linspire is doomed. No, they haven’t signed an unholy alliance with ID Software involving pre-installing DOOM on all Linspire computers. In my opinion, they are doomed to die a painful death in the operating system world. Why? Read on to find out.
polishlinux: There are a lot of free file managers. There is Nautilus in GNOME environment (with GTK libraries), KDE users have Konqueror and Krusader. There is also more and more useful Dolphin. Of course, console zealots and users looking for “light” solutions are not left alone. They have MC!
Matt Asay: CNET Channel has announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to help consumers purchase Windows-supported products with ease and little hesitation. Just what I wanted from my unbiased, neutral news broker.
writelarge.com: I have a new girlfriend, and she has the initials KDE. My wife, Gnome, is probably going to have a problem with this, but, see, at the ripe old age of 10, Gnome is starting to look a little long in the tooth.

seopher: I recently postulated that PCLinuxOS was gaining more popularity than Ubuntu based on the feable metric of the Distrowatch "clicks per day" chart. I received lots of feedback insulting my use of this as metric so I felt it worth defending my decision.
iTToolbox blogs: I was clicking through random pages with StumbleUpon and I came across this list of 50 reasons to dump Windows. Some of them are quite good and some are not so good. Here are a couple of my favourites.
linux.com: Phil Shapiro seems to delight not only in remaining a staunch supporter of free software ideals, but also in his role as a encourager and defender of people. "I see myself as more of a follwer than a leader," he says. But Shapiro really is a leader, the best kind: one that nurtures the gifts in others instead of promoting himself.
DesktopLinux: According to DesktopLinux.com's just completed survey, the number of Desktop Linux users has more than doubled in the past year, and Ubuntu remains their Linux distribution of choice.
LinuxWorld (IDG): To make flying more enjoyable for its passengers, Singapore Airlines Ltd. is adding bigger screens, more in-flight movies and a PC, running Red Hat Inc.'s distribution of the Linux operating system, in every seat on its newest planes.
internetnews.com: Mozilla is aiming to put an end to XSS attacks in its upcoming Firefox 3 browser. The Alpha 7 development release includes support for a new W3C working draft specification that is intended is secure XML over HTTP requests which are often the culprit when it comes to XSS attacks.
itbusinessedge.com: Bloggers and tech journalists are still trading barbs over Chris DiBona’s reaction to Microsoft’s OSI submission, it seems. In his Open Source Guy blog, Guy Snir points to a comment piece in The Register in which Ashlee Vance argues that it’s “near impossible not to take Microsoft’s side here.” Google is a bigger threat to open source than Microsoft is, in his view.
the inquirer: IF YOU'RE a Linux user and, like yours truly, not really a professional full-time Unix/Linux sysadmin, you might also be puzzled like I was about how to set up Postfix to route local system-generated email to your email client. If you're not a Linux user, or not curious, you can stop reading here, because this article is about how to solve that problem.
Caitlyn Martin: Back in my January review of Vector Linux 5.8 Standard, the version with the Xfce desktop, I touted Vector Linux as the fastest distro with a reasonable feature set and selection of software that I had used at the time. It took a while but I finally found a distribution that’s at least Vector’s equal: Wolvix 1.1.0.
tectonic: Speaking in a keynote address at the Govtech conference in Cape Town this morning, Mark Shuttleworth discussed strategies that government should take on in developing IT locally.
