talk bmc blogs: The FSF should realize by now their influence is waning. Look at the plethora of alternative licenses. Now they’re really hamstringing themselves with Version 3, taking the license further and further from where industry developers are heading. Developers are still the heart of the open source community, and their support is integral to success.
polishlinux.org: I started using Ubuntu Linux just when this distribution first appeared, 3.5 years ago with Warty Warthog. Since then I upgraded the system more or less regularly every six months, following the Ubuntu release cycle. I had to clean install only once since two years ago I changed my laptop. So, what was the biggest surprise in the recently released Ubuntu 7.04 to me?
Linux.com: The license changes keep coming. While work is wrapping up on the GNU General Public License version 3 (GPLv3), the Free Software Foundation has released the first discussion draft of the Affero GPLv3.
linux.com: Many Web sites feature RSS feeds and newsletter subscriptions that let you know when they've updated their contents, but unfortunately, a significant number of sites still don't. How can you keep up with them? Let's build a shell script to automate that task.
LinuxWorld: Andrew Morton, a kernel developer best known for filtering and testing new kernel submissions in a test kernel called the "-mm tree", listed three major problem areas in a May "State of the Kernel" talk at Google.
SourceForge, Inc. today said it has teamed-up with Wikispaces to integrate wikis directly into SourceForge.net, the world’s largest repository of open source software. The addition of wiki functionality into SourceForge.net gives the community a simpler and more efficient tool to mass-author the documentation and communication necessary to support its open source projects.
zdnet blogs: Jeff Jones has expanded his project to count security flaws (publicly reported and fixed) in the major workstation operating systems and his latest numbers show Windows Vista has by far the best security profile when compared to the major Linux distributions.
Groklaw: Do you remember when Novell filed the Microsoft deal agreements with the SEC, its annual report said, "No one license is critical to our business?" I took that as a possible hint of their future direction, post GPLv3. I take Novell's new press release, "Capgemini and Novell Enter Broad Mixed-Source Partnership", as confirmation.
nirak.net: I’ve started making a mental list of windows programs I am *really* going to miss now that I’m using Ubuntu as my main OS.
shift+backspace: Last night I was sitting around watching some baseball when I decided to bring out my aging and dying laptop in hopes of writing a new article for Shift+Backspace. I booted the old Inspiron 8500 to find out that I still had an old beta version of Linux Mint 3. This spawned a great idea!
eWeek: After devoting the bulk of its efforts over the past couple years to realizing the advanced server technology goals of Red Hat's Enterprise Linux product, the community-powered Fedora Project has turned its attention toward catching up with the distribution and packaging advances of its Linux rivals.
mozilla links: Continuing this week’s release spree, Netscape has released yet another version of the venerable Netscape Navigator. Netscape Navigator 9 Beta drops support for Internet Explorer’s rendering engine (Trident) and is now Gecko only.

fos-softwares.blogspot: Last week I accidentally destroyed my laptop's (Toshiba a105-s1013) hard drive partition table. Since I need to reeformat my hard drive, I decided to install PCLINUXOS2007.
linux.com: Fedora 7 was released last week, a little bit behind schedule, with a spate of new features, updates, and live CD installable "spins" of Fedora in KDE and GNOME flavors. I found a lot of good in this release, but a bug in the FireWire stack that attacked my external backup drive made this release just a little shy of perfect.

Raiden's Realm: "World of Padman - Stand Alone Complex" is an exciting, comic, and downright loony adventure through the fictitious world of "Padman", a comic book superhero drawn in the oddest of styles.
packt publishing: Kororaa's developer Chris Smart probably had the best tutors introduce him to Linux, including Andrew Tridgell, the author of Samba file server. In this discussion with Chris, he talks about why he developed Kororaa, why people interested in learning Linux should use Gentoo, and his new project to help users make the move to Free and Open Source software.
MEPIS has announced that the release candidate of a community built and maintained ultra-lite derivative of MEPIS has been released for public testing. AntiX is not a lite version of SimplyMEPIS and it is not an official product of MEPIS. It is built from the MEPIS Linux core.
freesoftwaremagazine: In part one, I looked at the Beagle search tool on the command line and the graphical user interface and in part two I want to look at alternative front-ends for it. First out of the stable is...
Moving to Freedom: I’m getting moved in at 1776 Freedom Lane. Just a few boxes unpacked so far. I have backups set up going to the slug, and am getting mail in Thunderbird. I knew the house came furnished with some nice accessories, but was pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to use one of the features.
linux.com: TreeLine is a hybrid application that combines the features of a traditional outliner with a free-form database. As such, it offers a unique way to organize heterogeneous data, be it contact information, bookmarks, text snippets, bibliography, task lists, or something else.
