internetnews.com: A new report from Beijing-based CCID Consulting pegs Linux operating sales revenues up by nearly 31 percent in the first quarter of 2007 to 31 million Yuan (just over US$4 million), as compared to the same period a year prior.
ZDNet: The first keynote of the Red Hat conference here in San Diego kicked off with a passionate speech from chief executive Matthew Szulik who asserted that some of the blame for the terrorist threat that many developed nations are facing, lies with the fact many developing countries have been left behind when it comes to the digital revolution – particularly when it comes to education.

webworkerdaily: Vancouver-based developer Doug Schmidt has come up with one of the silliest (yet most amusing) browser hacks to come down the pike in a while: DryerFox.
indystar: It's not just big companies, with their household names and logos and equally big advertising budgets, that sponsor cars in the Indianapolis 500. Ordinary geeks do it, too.
boston.com: Red Hat Inc.'s analyst day on Wednesday may be a chance for the budding Linux provider to swing the sentiment on Wall Street after recently posting disappointing fiscal fourth-quarter results.

Linux.com: One of the less well-known features of OpenOffice.org is its ability to run as a service. You can put that ability to some clever use. For example, you can turn OpenOffice.og into a conversion engine and use it to convert documents from one format to another via a Web-based interface or a command-line tool. JODConverter can help you to unleash OpenOffice.org's file conversion capabilities.
Open Source Toolbox: SML has Published an interesting review of Yoper 3 Beta (in Hebrew), in which he measured boot time and application start time across Yoper, Arch Linux, Slick (retired?) and openSUSE.
kernelTRAP: Some people complain that Linux doesn't support really large IO commands. The main reason why we do not support infinitely sized IO is that we need to allocate a scatterlist to fill these elements into for dma mapping.

Donna Bogatin (ZDNet blogs): If we take Google CEO Eric Schmidt at his public words, Microsoft Office is welcome at the Google Apps table. But what about OpenOffice.org?
Linux.com: Fluendo's Elisa is a free software media center application that can play your DVDs, video files, music, and pictures. Since it is designed for extensibility, Elisa has the potential to do much more. It does not handle television or video recording functions, but it is a slick and promising project.
Free Software Mag: Do you need to make a database, but fear it’s too much of a pain or you don’t have the right tools? Don’t worry: it’s easy, free, and useful, too. Use the free OpenOffice.org office suite to get your data in shape for mail merges, queries, or useful analysis of your business data.
Paul Murphy: I've said elsewhere, linux is not Windows and efforts to make it so are doomed to fail. Nobody gets to be a leader by following, and neither OpenOffice nor Linux are going to beat Microsoft at being Microsoft.
eChannelLine: More than half of companies taking advantage of open source in a survey are using it in mission critical applications, stated a new report from Forrester Consulting that was sponsored by Unisys.
LinuxWorld: The concept of supporting user-space drivers has appeared on LWN a few times before. It's back; this time there is a version of the patch (now called "UIO") which is being proposed for inclusion into 2.6.22. The interface has changed somewhat, so another look is called for.
ITtoolbox Blogs: In my previous "Exploring the /etc directory" I talked about the inittab file and what it does. Now I am going to explore the directories it uses and how they work.
This document describes how to install a vsftpd server that uses virtual users from a PostgreSQL database instead of real system users. I could not find any tutorial like that on the internet, so when that configuration finally worked for me, I decided to publish it. The documentation is based on FreeBSD 6.2 which I was recently forced to use (I usually use Debian). Nevertheless the document should be suitable for almost any Linux distribution as well (may require very small amendments)
DesktopLinux: Ubuntu 7.04, aka "Feisty Fawn," has been out for several weeks now and it's already very popular. Heck, Michael Dell was running it even before he chose it to become Dell's Linux of choice. But, how good is it?
GCN: Last weekend, Slashdot unearthed a debate over system architecture that was simmering between key Linux kernel developers and a creator of Sun Microsystems Inc.’s next-generation file system, ZFS.
maximumpc: I’ve written about Linux in Maximum PC quite a bit over the last three years. You see, I’m intrigued by the prospect of a free, open operating system, one that’s available for everyone to use and modify to suit their own purposes.
LinuxDevices: Contrary to widespread rumors, Ubuntu Mobile will not target mobile phones. Instead, the "mobile and embedded" version of the popular desktop Linux distribution will be developed in partnership with Intel, and will target "mobile Internet devices" (MIDs), along the lines of Nokia's N800 web tablet.
