DPotD: Revelation is a powerful tool which lets you manage and store sensitive information, such as passwords or credit cards numbers, in a password protected file, so you only have to remember one password to access all.
tectonic: Linux has come a long way in the past two years. Today much of what needs to be done on a Linux machine can be done using a mouse and a little pointing and clicking. Occasionally, however, there are things that still require a little under-the-hood tinkering, where a rudimentary understanding of the command line comes in handy.
wired blogs: The morning's executive briefing sessions are underway here at OSCON. Tim O'Reilly just led a discussion on stage about Firefox add-ons -- what they've achieved, how the open source model has shaped their development and what they contribute to the web.
Techzone: Sun finally set in the English empire; wind of change is blowing hard and the inevitable has happened. A non-corporate backed distribution, PCLinuxOS, has displaced the mighty Ubuntu as the top ranked distribution on 3 months page hit ranking at distrowatch.
MaximumPC: There's a ridiculous rumor running around the net that Linux is so inherently secure -- or so securely obscure -- that you shouldn't even bother running an antivirus on it. But frankly, that's just not true.
Paul Murphy: I believe that the key reason Unix hasn’t taken over the generic office desktop has nothing to do with the technology and everything to do with the people and processes involved.
O'Reilly ONLamp: I just read an article at Linux.com about the OS habits of Linux users. The author of the article asked Linux Torvalds about his habits and found he exclusively used Linux. Torvalds said, “I don’t use either [Windows or Mac OS X]. OS X is kind of pointless (pretty much anything it has, Linux can do better) and Windows offers stuff that I don’t much care about. However, to Torvalds, I say, “hogwash”.
polishlinux: In this article I’d like to describe a text-mode Bittorrent client - rTorrent. It will be helpful to people that share a computer with other household members because it allows them to download files regardless of the logged in user.
Linux Planet: Young successful South African entrepreneur starts a commercial company to help support and build an infrastructure around Ubuntu. Most of us have heard this story before. Young cosmonaut makes it big in the rough and tumble world of the penguin. But now, in the midst of Canonical's first big event, the question becomes: where do Canonical--and Ubuntu--go from here?
ZDNet: Microsoft should be able to extricate itself from the implications of the new GPLv3, according to a leading Australian Intellectual Property lawyer.
Carla Schroder: I have some shocking news: despite the astonishing growth of Linux, there is a whole new generation of Linux users who have never, ever compiled a kernel. How to account for this sad state of affairs?
Novell Open PR: Nice industry recognition coming today for Markus Rex, a long time SUSE Linux and Novell executive. He’s been appointed by the Linux Foundation to serve at Chief Technology Officer.

Poelcat: Mike Mcgrath started an important topic on fedora-adivsory-board-list here and one that I have been thinking about for a long time… “Who is our Target Audience?” I think the question of target audience is important to consider in light of comparisons to Ubuntu.
Ken Hardin's blog @ itbusinessedge: More on my non-techie experiments with running an Ubuntu desktop on our Windows network here at IT Business Edge. All in all, setting up a printer was a little more geeky than what I encountered during my initial OS setup.
seopher: When your screen is white, be it an empty word page, or the Google page, your computer consumes 74 watts, and when its black it consumes only 59 watts.
eWeek: One Laptop Per Child's XO (commonly referred to as the $100 laptop) is designed to change the world by bringing computing resources to children in the developing world. But the many innovations in the XO may also end up changing the world of technology.
