cookingwithlinux.com: I was first introduced to Linux in 1998, when it was, perhaps, entering “puberty”. When I was introduced to Linux, I was interested in learning about it. In those days, Linux was harder to use and if you didn't have a love of computers you might have given up. Linux has come a long way since then. Since I wanted more control of my system, I was interested in Gentoo.
jonreagan.wordpress: In a recent article published on CodingExperiments.com, it was noticed that the search term “Ubuntu” was coming closer to passing the term “Linux” on Google’s search engine. Many wondered why and several complained that Ubuntu was becoming “Linux.” So, why is this? Here’s why:
serverwatch.com: Computer filesystems are a surprisingly passionate topic. You can't get anyone excited about Emacs vs. Vi anymore, but start comparing filesystems and you'll have a fast and furious debate in no time. The current dominant filesystems for Linux are Ext2/3, ReiserFS, JFS and XFS.
itwire.com: There are some idiots I've encountered in my time but none so crazy as the guy who wants to define what a Linux review should comprise. His qualifications to offer such a definition are perfect - he has never written a review himself but he has read plenty of them.
linux-mag.com: Linux Magazine spends some time with the man who made Ubuntu, arguably the most popular desktop Linux distribution, possible. Kristin Shoemaker finds out what makes Mark tick, and what’s going on with the Shuttleworth Foundation.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: I saw yet another article posted by someone who apparently has nothing better to do than beat dead horses. The view espoused by so many bloggers and other 'writers' who cannot come to terms with the number and volume of distros available, that somehow there are 'too many', is akin to that of a child who complains in a candy store that because he or she cannot make up their mind.

internetling.com: I hear the former CEO of Linspire said it’s going to ruin the company, because the shares will become worthless. But for us users, what we’re going to see, is a new direction for the not-so-popular Click ‘n’ Run and maybe even a new, merged distribution?
wsj.com: MYSQL chief Marten Mickos isn't afraid his rivals in the database-software industry will ever overtake him. "Let them try," he says. "Our secret is in the way we operate our culture, and I'm convinced others cannot imitate that."

thevarguy.com: Two small Linux companies are merging. What does it mean to Linux market leaders like Red Hat, Novell and Ubuntu — and Linux customers? Here are some clues from The VAR Guy.
itwire.com: The fact that organising Australia's national Linux conference is fully a year's work has been brought home with the announcement by the organisers of LCA 2009, or linux.conf.au as it is better known, that ideas for papers can be submitted.
linux.com: Alternative Find and Replace for Writer (AltSearch) has the ambitious goal of replacing and enhancing one of the most basic pieces of OpenOffice.org functionality. It's undermined by a chaotic interface, but if you have the patience to continue past first impressions, you will find AltSearch comes far closer to fulfilling its promise than you might initially imagine
blogs.zdnet: Retailers and contract manufacturers in Taiwan say that novice PC users there, like students and housewives, tend to buy the Linux version of the Eee PC701, while geeks go for Windows XP. Does that sound backwards?
chris.pirillo.com: I don’t use Linux as my operating system, but I do have several Linux live CDs. The problem that I always have with live CDs for Linux is that when they’re built, they include things I would never include. Or, they don’t put in things that I feel I should have. At Custom NimbleX, you can easily create your own customized version of Linux.
pcworld.com: Making the switch from Windows to Linux will incur some costs as employees and support staff adjust to the new system's configuration settings, utilities, and applications. Even so, the savings in future hardware and software upgrades could be huge.
montanalinux.org: My first Linux installation took place circa 1992, I pulled my hair out for a month or so while I was trying to figure out how to install this very interesting and FREE operating system. Wow, Linux has gone a long way since my first install.
raiden.net: One of the things that's bothered me to no end for quite a while is the ridiculously huge number of Linux distributions out there. 350+ active or semi-active and nearly 200 dead distros is rather pathetic in my opinion. It would not be hard at all to merge all of those distributions into one "jack of all trades" distribution.
blogs.techrepublic.com: As many of you know, a while back I was converted to Ubuntu. Currently running (happily I might add) Ubuntu 7.10, I have had no need to return to my Red Hat roots. Of course being a writer in this industry, it behoves me to make sure I am up to date on the latest, greatest software. So I decided it was necessary that I install Fedora 9.
