clintonskakun.wordpress: Ubuntu has served me well for a few months, I think it was April when I started using it. I have to say Ubuntu is one of my favorite Linux distributions. It’s great for people who are new to Linux or have been using Windows for a long time and want to try out something different or more reliable.
blog.cryos.net: So there have been quite a few people asking what is happening with KDE 4.1 on Gentoo. I have been working with a few other developers and interested users on the new ebuilds in an overlay. I think these ebuilds are almost ready and I am very eager to get them into the tree.
The August issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter has been released. In this month's issue: PHP4 removal, GSOC interview, new Gentoo-based distributions, and more!

Sven Vermeulen: With the summer at hand and my daughter on the way, I thought it would be a good idea to put the current work for this (end-user) document online. On my developer page you can find the current draft of Linux Sea, a book on Gentoo Linux.
gentoo.org/news: Welcome to the July issue of the Gentoo monthly newsletter! Since our last issue, Gentoo Linux 2008.0 has been released and the Gentoo Security Team held a meeting on July 14, 2008. In howtos: this guide will show you a method for trying to recover just about any deleted file.
robbat2.livejournal: Ok, so this isn't a full one week period yet, but I'm going to be out tonight probably, so 8 hours ahead of time is close enough. This is just a quick scrape of the numbers.
For those unfortunate souls who couldn't boot, install, or burn the LiveCD, we've provided the 2008.0-r1 revision bump. It fixes these specific problems:
