theregister.co.uk: The venerable Debian Linux distribution has experienced a significant new release with its latest update, dubbed Lenny. While Debian is still not the easiest Linux distro to install and use, Lenny makes significant leaps forward and remains one of the most powerful Linux options.
linuxfoundation.org: If you noticed that LDN was a little quiet last week, it was because my wife and I were out of town last week--way out of town. Our destination was Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, where we were to bring home our new seven-year-old daughter.
workswithu.com: Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 Netbooks running Windows XP and Ubuntu are on sale. But US newspaper advertisements from Dell and Best Buy show Dell’s Windows XP netbooks to be a far better bargain than Dell netbooks with Ubuntu Linux.

theregister.co.uk: There's something different about Lenny, the latest release of Debian that finally went live this weekend.
jdeeth.blogspot: Our word for the day this fine Linux President's Day Monday is “repository.” I admit, it was one of those alien words that buffaloed me when I first started learning.
desktoplinux.wordpress: In this post, I describe how I compared 4 distros to run on the old family desktop. I’m presently auditioning for a new distro. PCLinuxOS 2007 has been the family favorite for the past year or so.
blog.isecore.net: Linux is Free Software. Generally the average person tends to think of “Linux” as simply one operating system, but it’s rather a family of systems. A few minutes ago I found this (swedish-language) thread about why Linux-distributions have such silly names.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I reviewed Linux Mint 5 Light back in July 2008. Since I wasn’t using VirtualBox at the time, I only tested it as a LiveDVD and that may have been the source of some of my problems testing the software installation. Plus this time I can review the installation process.
