datamation: The third version of the GNU General Public License (GPL) won't be released until the end of June. Yet, already, it is proving one of the most controversial developments ever in the free and open source software (FOSS)communities.
FOSSwire: Feed technology such as RSS and Atom is something that a lot of websites and blogs use to deliver their content directly to users, rather than having the users have to come to the actual site. There are several command line feed reading applications that are available. One of these is called Snownews.
nixcraft: When invoked without arguments, the date command displays the current date and time. Depending on the options specified, date will set the date and time or print it in a user defined way.
xubuntublog: Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” contained some new packages, it also introduced a bug due to which your data would no longer be saved. When it was released, this bug still wasn’t fixed. It is expected to be fixed in the next release, 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”, to be released in October of this year. Up until then, we’re out of luck. You’d think.

opensourcelearning: On the Mandriva Cooker mailinglist there was the following request based on my earlier article that made the case that Mandriva and TurboLinux might be next to partner with Microsoft.
linux-watch: OK, so why have Novell, Xandros, and Linspire all gotten into bed with Microsoft? Is it... They were seduced by Steve Ballmer's charming smile? They've gone over to the dark side of the force? Terror of Microsoft's mighty patent portfolio had them groveling at Microsoft's feet?
ComputerWorld: Is 2008 the year of the open-source desktop? Red Hat Linux is now widely deployed on the servers in my datacentre. Users have no idea what operating system underlies our web applications and databases, nor do they care, as long as those tools are highly available.
lockergnome blogs: One thing I’ve been meaning to talk about on here is Ubuntu Linux, which I installed on my laptop about three weeks ago. I went with Ubuntu 7.04, and after the mere 10 minutes it took to install it, I never looked back since.
Getmail is a program for retrieving emails from remote servers; it is very similar to fetchmail, but more flexible.
About.com: I have been using my Inspiron E1505 running Ubuntu Linux for a full week now, and it's been a pleasure. This notebook computer has a lot of little nice features that make it pleasant to work with. Here is how I got the unit to play DVD movies.
linux-watch: In a recent column, I speculated that Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical Ltd., the company behind Ubuntu, might make Ubuntu the next Linux distribution to make a deal with Microsoft. The matter has also been hotly spoken about in some of the Ubuntu mailing lists. Unfortunately, no one seems to have actually read my column.
GoblinX is a live Linux distribution based on Slackware 11, written by a Brazillian developer who goes by the pseudonym Grobsch. It comes with five different window managers/GUIs, and uses custom artwork for each of them that's quite unlike anything you've seen before.
phoronix: In addition to Chris DiBona's words about NVIDIA and ATI binary display drivers, Google had also made an interesting splash at the first-ever Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit (which they had kindly hosted at their Mountain View campus) during a presentation by the Google Linux Client Team. What was it?
pocketpcmag blogs: I've been aware of the existence of the Linux operating system for a long time, but I'd always assumed that it would be too complicated for me to learn and was a bit too geeky. Recently, however, I began hearing about a version of Linux called Ubuntu that was supposed to be pretty easy to use. Flash forward a few weeks and not only have I found that it is relatively easy to use, but it's already replaced Windows Vista as my main operating system of choice for day to day use!
freesoftwaremagazine: So, you’ve now taken the successful plunge and finally let the Microsoft nightmares fade into expensive and unpleasant memories. GNU/Linux can supply a nice little GUI that will quickly take care of housekeeping, after you’ve been having fun adding and removing software applications.
eWeek: The agency turns to NetBeans, other open-source tools to project the water supply.
CyberNet: I’ve been wanting to get into reviewing computer hardware, but I wasn’t quite sure where to start. Finally I decided on laptops, and while there are some great sites out there that review them, none of the reviewers use them for an extended period of time. Their reviews are typically based off of performance and first impressions, but what about other things that are important such as how long the battery lasts while watching a movie or how scratch-resistant the case is?
Johan Dahlin: Today, after more than 2 years and 120 comments I could finally close #172535, adding support for loading interfaces created by UI designers in Gtk+.

Mark Shuttleworth: There’s a rumour circulating that Ubuntu is in discussions with Microsoft aimed at an agreement along the lines they have concluded recently with Linspire, Xandros, Novell etc. For the record, let me state my position.
Pie Palace: My desktop is an Ubuntu install. I want my instant messaging client to start automagically when I login. It doesn't make sense to use /etc/init.d to start it, because I want the app to be run as my user, and I want it to start with my windowing session. How does one do this with Ubuntu?
