ostatic.com: Linux Mint 11 GNOME was released nearly two months ago. Some of us have been waiting for the KDE version to test (and possibly use) and wonder where it is. Today a blog post by Clem gives a clue.
dedoimedo.com: SimplyMEPIS is quite easy to overlook. A distribution designed to complete with Mandriva and openSUSE back in early 2000s, it has seen little shift in its general strategy, even thought the Linux market has been eclipsed by Ubuntu's rise.

centos.org: We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-6.0 for i386 and x86_64 Architectures.
wsj.com: Jim Whitehurst sees user collaboration as the wave of the future, not only for technology companies but for the business world at large.
openbytes.wordpress: The one thing about a distro based on Ubuntu is that there is an accepted (high) level of functionality you can expect out of the box. ArtistX is no exception to this.
Linux Mint represented my return to Linux. It was the first distribution I tried that "just worked", and since that day I have not had Windows installed on any of my personal PCs. I have, however, jumped between a few different Linux distributions, and have recently settled on Fedora 15.
reddit.com: My 10v is a modest, capable little machine even if it does run too hot. Linux Mint LXDE convinced me that LXDE is the way I want my Linux on the 10v. But LM 9 LXDE had problems with sound and wireless on this netbook.
