dot.kde.org: The annual KDE World Summit, Akademy, has found a home for 2008 in the heart of Europe, Belgium. The event is the most important conference for the contributors of the KDE project and will be held from Saturday August 9th to Saturday 16th at the De Nayer Institute.
lxer: Slackware enjoys the official position of “the eldest” of all of the currently developed distributions. Started in 1993 by Patrick Volkerding it began its life as a series of improvements to SLS' version of Linux. By and by, it grew into a separate distro of its own. In fact, several other distros (who shall remain nameless) used Slackware as their basis before they ventured off into their respective directions.
opensuse news: To strengthen the openSUSE project we’re looking for an enthusiastic Chief Evangelist to promote and spread the adoption of openSUSE, develop and nurture the openSUSE communities, and pro actively drive openSUSE marketing.

zdnet blogs: Ross Turk of Sourceforge (right) was troubled by my post about Mashable’s Open Source God, which to him read as though I were calling Sourceforge a site meant exclusively for developers. That is its perceived niche, and its greatest strength, something it should be proud of.
linux.com: The idea is floating around again: Let's make a special Linux distribution for women! We're smarter than that, aren't we? I say, let's spare ourselves and the world yet another pointless and less-than-useful version of Linux.
Also: GNU/Linux distro for women? Why not?
opensuse news: Here is another ‘People of openSUSE’ interview, this time with Carlos Gonçalves, a very active member of our Portuguese community and founder of ENOS. By the way Carlos joined the ‘People of openSUSE’ initiative and will do some interviews in the future!
kernelTRAP: "Based on the new guidelines posted by the SFLC on 'Maintaining Permissive-Licensed Files in a GPL-Licensed Project: Guidelines for Developers', specifically section 5, we are introducing a new tag for use with patches which deal with files licensed under permissive licenses (BSD, ISC) on Linux wireless in our larger GPL project, the Linux kernel," explained Luis Rodriguez.
Dana Blankenhorn: The issue in the Atheros case were changes to an OpenBSD driver aimed at enabling 802.11 under a GPL license, which de Raadt called a “stealing our code thing.” The SFLC decided that the new files were separately copyrighted works, but SFLC head Eben Moglen convinced most to release the code so it could be re-incorporated in OpenBSD. Most, but not all.
jono bacon: Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, Cats and Dogs, Sheep and Goats, Ace Of Bass, Boys 2 Men…erm…, anyway, I am pleased to point your already curious noses in the direction of the Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon Beta Release. It is out, and it needs testing. And, guess what? This is where you ‘orrible lot come in.
zdnet: Michael Meeks is a distinguished engineer at Novell. But his current project may be his toughest yet. He is in charge of tackling interoperability between Novell's OpenOffice.org productivity suite and Microsoft Office.
Aka: Killing Microsoft's Clippy with open source

ITPro: One of the reigning mass market champions of open source software appears to have hit choppy waters. With Firefox 3 on the horizon, IT PRO finds out what's happening with the world's favourite non-Microsoft browser.
linux.com: Songbird is a cross-platform, Mozilla-based music player with high ambitions. The app is still undergoing heavy development, but it has come a long way since we looked at the 0.1 release in 2006. Songbird today can sing a pretty sweet tune, but to push its way into the big leagues, it needs to get over its own interface.

Linux Electrons: The Software Freedom Law Center today announced that it has carefully reviewed the lineage of the open source Atheros wireless driver for Linux and determined which portions can be distributed under the ISC license.
foogazi.com: It’s no secret that tech-savvy computer users typically become the go-to guy for all technical help in their circles. More specifically, Mom and Dad tend to always ask us for help with their computers. If you’re tired of the phone calls from Mom and Dad, then this post should convince you with 5 reasons why your parents should use Linux.
Paul Murphy: When you ask google for innovations in Linux what you get is rather disappointing - on the first page there’s somebody’s rather uninformed attack on Linux as lacking innovation, some PR bumbf, and five separate references to a joint IBM/Red Hat press release entitled “IBM, Red Hat Announce New Development Innovations in Linux Kernels”.
Linux Today: The first story wasn't even about Linux; it was about the release of Apache 1.3.2. Dave Whitinger posted that story at this time in the early morning of September 28, 1998 (Eastern time).
