opensourcelearning: PCLinuxOS released it’s most recent incarnation and has even succeeded to surpass Ubuntu in popularity with (if we use the Distrowatch ranking as an indication of that). With it’s roots solidly in Madriva and dedicated to be even more userfriendly it does deserve a closer look.
LinuxWorld: New York has become the latest U.S. state to ponder whether to use open standards for government document formats, though the move is not necessarily good news for proponents of the ISO standard Open Document Format (ODF).
Linux DevCenter: Performance optimization in Linux doesn't always mean what we might think. It's not just a matter of outright speed; sometimes it's about tuning the system so that it fits into a small memory footprint. You'd be hard-pressed to find a programmer that does not want to make programs run faster, regardless of the platform. Linux programmers are no exception.
Andrew Morton submitted some documentation explaining the use of the "Signed-off-by" and "Acked-by" tags added when patches are submitted for conclusion into the Linux kernel.

Debian Administration: SSH is a must use tool for system administrators. However, residing access security on a human entered password is not very wise. The good news is that there is a way to leave remote access open and have not to worry about passwords.
