seopher: Everyone loves free software (open source or otherwise) and this list demonstrates quite how many excellent applications can be had for free. If you thought you needed to buy something - maybe check this list first.
click: After trying quite a few Linux distributions that offer Xfce desktops (Slackware, Vector, ZenWalk, Debian), it was time to revisit Xubuntu 7.04, install it from scratch and see how it fares.
Unless you're able to deal with such esoteric problems as diagnosing a buggy post-install script, or figuring out how to deal with a major change in the directory structure of X.org, you might occasionally find running a Debian Sid-based system to be more than you can handle. And that's where Sidux comes in. Sidux's goal is to allow mere mortals the ability to run Debian Sid on the desktop, in order to take advantage of the latest Debian software available. Its development team helps guide its users through the occasional bumps in Sid, via IRC and its user forum. Another goal is to offer a consistent release cycle. Sidux comes with a variety of "convenience scripts" and utilities you won't find in Debian proper, that make it easier to do such things as administer your system and install proprietary software.
kernelTRAP: Ingo Molnar announced version 20 of his Completely Fair Scheduler patchset, offering further cleanups for the new scheduler code that will be part of the upcoming 2.6.23 kernel, "there have been lots of small regression fixes, speedups, debug enhancements and tidy-ups - many of which can be user-visible."
arstechnica: There is value in experiments that aim to provide insight into the potential of alternate application deployment solutions or new technologies that could be used to augment existing package management systems. One such experiment is Glick.
eWeek: I recently took a look at Microsoft's most active open-source projects and—there's no polite way to say this—they are all junk.

linuxdevcenter: Ubuntu is known as Linux for Human Beings. PC-BSD, on the other hand, "has been designed with the casual computer user in mind.
linux.com: Most of the ISO images and other software you grab off the Internet come with a message digest -- a cryptographic hash value that you can use to verify their integrity. While almost all Linux distributions come with utilities to read and generate digests using MD5 and SHA1 hash functions, the md5deep utilities can do that and more.
gearlog.com: I spread out the CPU, LCD widescreen monitor, mouse, and keyboard on the living room floor. From there, I transferred all of the items to the office, and timed the set-up process: a quick 5 minutes and 49 seconds (Sorry Kyle's wife!) from plugging in to powering up to surfing PCMag.com. After I got the Internet working, I decided to be brave and install our F5D7000 Belkin Wireless G Card all by myself!

softpedia: Microsoft software versus open source software has been, and still is a never-ending debatable issue. Both camps have harsh supporters who claim their favorite is the best. Personally, I think that both sides have their own ups and downs and you cannot just say one of them is better. Just because one suits you better, doesn't imply the other is lame.
c•news: Russian Linux software developers have created an alliance to jointly participate in tenders to supply schools with open source software. The total number of specialist entering the alliance has exceeded the given number in Mandriva and Ubuntu Canonical producer, all in all.

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.
