phoronix: Last month at the X Developer Summit in Cambridge, Eric Anholt, Adam Jackson, and Daniel Stone had talked about the future of X.Org releases for the next year. Over the weekend, Daniel Stone had updated the XDS 2007 Notes at X.org with the latest plans for X.Org 7.5.
nixternal: No you geeks, that wasn’t the beginning of a math equation, that is when the next release of Kubuntu will be out. Anyways, if you are in the Chicago land area on October 21, 2007 between the hours of 10am and 4pm, we will be holding a 7.10 release party as well as an install fest.
libervis.com: With this article I want to point out how Free Software provides a secure environment and how important the community is.
arstechnica: The Gimmie panel enhancement project has been proposed for inclusion in GNOME 2.22. Gimmie provides a highly streamlined user interface that exposes GNOME functionality in a logically organized and consistent manner.

FOSSwire: There are plenty of different terminal programs out there for all different desktops. YaKuake is one such KDE-based terminal emulator with a difference.
terminally-incoherent: We all know that browsers are kinda like religion - everyone has one that they like, and thinks all the other ones are crap. And I have to say that Firefox, Flock, Opera, Safari and the others are all great pieces of software, but not on low end hardware. So here are some browsers perfect for your old decrepit little computer.
tombuntu: Gnash is an open source player for Adobe’s Flash format. It can be used as an alternative to Adobe’s proprietary player. The upcoming Ubuntu 7.10 release includes automatic installation of either Adobe Flash or Gnash. I decided to put this feature to the test in Ubuntu 7.10 Beta.

infoworld blogs: Since its release this June, GPLv3 certainly seems to have taken on the role of baby Damien within the open source licensing world. Sure, it's cute and cuddly at first glance, but behind its deep blue eyes lurk pure and unhinged evil ... at least if you believe the recent Evans Data survey. Then again, Palamida's posted conversion rates seem to indicate that the Evans Data results may be a bit too pessimistic. So who do we believe?
information week blogs: There are many things that Linux does well. There are many things that still need work. But they’re not always the obvious things, either.
beranger: I am sick of the articles of the kind "Top 27 cool apps to install on Ubuntu"... ...so I only have my own Top 1:

Also: Will low-cost OLPC or Eee PCs bring changes to the notebook industry ecosystem?
And: Cheap laptops still MIA
ruminations: The next two days I will focus a bit more on the gaming experience under PC-BSD. My main focus is: (1) Will the PBIs run under this latest release of PC-BSD? and (2) Are the games running with a decent speed?
techwhack.com: If you are an Ubuntu fan you would have tried out their ShipIt service which delivers the Ubuntu CDs for free at your door step. The service is currently down as they are preparing to start the shipment of the upcoming release of Ubuntu which would be Ubuntu 7.10.
Also: Ubuntu Unleashed (2nd Edition)
And: An interview with aysiu
linux.com: How does the current version of OpenOffice.org (OOo) compare with Microsoft Office in its ability to produce slide presentations? To see how the two programs compare now, I installed Microsoft Office 2007 and OpenOffice.org 2.3, and went through the process of designing a slide show from start to finish. To my surprise, the results were more decisive than in my last comparison.
softpedia: A new Compiz release was created by Danny Baumann, Compiz's main developer. Its release was announced yesterday and the new version is 0.6.0.
