Moving to Freedom: One of my problems in moving to free software has been a stubborn resistance to letting go of my old Windows ways and jumping in to the deeper end of the freedom pool. I’ve been getting over my self-directed FUD campaign and am enjoying the learning process these days.

eWeek: Enterprise IT users are looking for the major Linux vendors to update their enterprise products less frequently and to give them much more guidance about what is included in the patches and upgrades.
Reuters: Software maker Novell Inc. will not be punished by a software foundation that owns rights to much of the code behind the open-source Linux operating system, said a person familiar with the matter.

SysAdminMag.com: Most Linux distributions have upgrade paths with their installation. They are, however, usually only useful for a sub-release upgrade, such as from 7.1 to 7.2 or 7.3. However, I have yet to run into one that will successfully and cleanly upgrade from one release to the next full release. However, with some thought and a decent understanding of *Nix, it's possible to upgrade or migrate without too much pain.
Phoronix: Earlier today we had spoke with Mark Shuttleworth to discuss the latest happenings in the Ubuntu world including Dell shipping Ubuntu PCs, getting open-source drivers from hardware vendors, and what is coming down the road for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.
Linux Journal: Some people are rubbing their hands in glee at the thought of Novell crashing and burning completely, but such a development could actually turn out to be one of the worst things to happen to free software.
PC Pro: A University of Liverpool mathematician claims 30-year-old open-source software has cracked the equation that will allow scientists to make objects - such as humans, tanks or even entire islands - invisible.
linux devcenter: I’ve had software patents on my mind for several years. After listening to my colleage Allison Randal work on the Artistic License 2.0 for several years, I’ve finally noticed that other updated OSI-compatible licenses deal with software patents in two ways.

/home/liquidat: Fedora 7 is to be released in these hours. I already got a copy of the last RC and have been bug hunting since then. And I gathered quite some over the last days, unfortunately, but most are simply due to new, not yet tested application features.
Nosredna Ekim: I am a Kubuntu user since version 6.06. However, that hasn’t made me blindly consider (k)ubuntu to be the best linux distro; I am always open to newcomers. In recent days, PClinuxOS 2007.0 was released, and quickly hit the top of of the distrowatch charts. I decided to download it and give this relatively new distribution a text run on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop.
Linux.com: After several delays, Gentoo finally released version 2007.0, code-named Secret Sauce. Despite the extended period of development, the installable live CD and DVD versions didn't work as they should, thanks to obvious bugs with display drivers. That said, if you discount the live CD and DVD and install Gentoo the manual way it's popular for, the new version is smooth as ice.
Raiden's Realm: A lot of the greatest hype in the Linux world has been around Ubuntu and its derivatives, namely Kubuntu, Edubuntu and the like. However, there's yet another contender in the Linux world that has been making a lot of noise and is worth a good hard look. Enter PcLinuxOS.
dot.kde.org: KWin, KDE's window manager, has been around since KDE 2.0 (replacing KWM in KDE 1.x) and has grown to be a mature and stable window manager over the years. For KDE 4, however, there were a few people rumbling about visual effects, and perhaps KWin was feeling a little envious of its younger cousins Compiz and Beryl.
Dana Blankenhorn: I want to continue our discussion about penguins as predators by talking about Covalent. Covalent’s business is supporting open source projects. Today Covalent added support for nine new Apache technologies to its roster and it’s expanding. Is it being predatory?
ArsGeek: With Ubuntu hitting the main stream (don’t argue with me, being sold by Dell is about as mainstream as you can get) I’ve been thinking about their constant upgrade/release cycle among other potential obstacles that may stand in the way of more widespread adoption of my favorite operating system.
You can customize the UNIX shell to save time, to save typing, and to adapt to your style of work. Shell startup files capture your preferences and recreate your shell environment session after session, even machine to machine.
CyberNetNews: Today is a big day for Mozilla because it marks the last version of Firefox 1.5 that will ship. This last release was definitely necessary though since Mozilla had never prompted 1.5.x users to upgrade to Firefox 2, but that is about to change.
Batteries Not Included: I have been using Ubuntu for approximately 2 months now. This has been a fairly monogamous relationship, I think I booted Windows all of twice. So, what does it feel like?
OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: Who wants to pay for someone else to make your wedding invitations? (Or programs, or whatever.) Use OpenOffice for your wedding invitations. This of course prompts the objection, "But there aren't any templates in OpenOffice."
