zdnet.com.au: The de facto registrar of superlative achievements has credited Mozilla for officially setting a record for downloads in a 24-hour period: 8,002,530 copies of Firefox.
The IBM AIX operating system has kept to what's important: stability, functionality, robustness. And it has done it by keeping a strong command-line interface (CLI). If you never learned to use the CLI or need a refresher on its basics, read on.
Glyn Moody: One of the most surprising recent developments in the field of openness has been the rise of Europe as a key player there. This is not the result of some grand plan, despite what the conspiracy theorists in proprietary software companies might think, but simply a natural evolution.

sharplinux.blogspot: I've talked so far about software freedom as in speech and as in beer. Today my topic is the kind of "free" that people view as a burden, the example being "free kittens." This is the meaning of "free" that keeps many regular, reasonable computer users from adopting.
raiden.net: Being an avid fan of aircraft and flight (ref: extreme high performance flying), one of the things that has always caught my interest was the ever improving design of aircraft, engines and avionics. Linux has become quite the integral part of the aviation industry these days, so much so that in some respects, Tux has grown wings.
blog.laptopmag: If Eee mania hasn’t set in yet, it’s about to. Earlier this week pictures of the Eee PC 903, 904, and 905 were leaked. Joining these “unofficial” pictures of new Eee PCs are some shots of the Eee Monitor. Based on the photos, we’re wondering whether this is actually a monitor or a new all-in-one PC or a rip off of the iMac.
blogs.linux.org.bd: One of the annoying features of reading several planets, is that you end up reading entries from people you otherwise respect, who seem to have various complexes about nonsensical issues. We all saw the month in which half of Debian decided it was cool to rip on Ubuntu, and now apparently it's the new cool thing to do if you work on Fedora.

softpedia.com: The first alpha version of the upcoming Ubuntu 8.10 (codename Intrepid Ibex), which is scheduled for release in late October this year, was announced a few days ago. Even if there aren't big changes Alpha 1 of Intrepid brings a brand new theme.

arstechnica.com: After the recent release KDE 4.1 beta 2 and openSUSE 11 with KDE 4.0.4, some critics have been especially vocal in expressing their displeasure with the KDE 4 user interface paradigms. The controversy has escalated to the point where some users are now advocating a fork. I'm convinced that the fork rhetoric is absurd.
news.opensuse.org: With openSUSE 11.0 out the door, it’s time to start thinking about openSUSE 11.1. The public release of openSUSE 11.1 is scheduled for December 18, 2008, six months after the release of openSUSE 11.0.
blogs.zdnet.com: Adrian, you dumbass! At least that was my initial reaction when I read his “Linux’s dirty little secret” column about his struggles with installing applications onto a Linux distro. It was either the Linux Geek rage originating from the knowing that he didn’t Read the Fine Manual (RTFM) or the sheer jealousy of not getting 300+ Talkbacks whenever I post.
geek00l.blogspot: DAVIX, a live CD for data analysis and visualization, brings the most important free tools for data processing and visualization to your desk. There's no hassle with installing an operating system or struggle to build the necessary tools to get started with visualization. You can completely dedicate your time to data analysis.
brajeshwar.com: There is a lot of information present in bits and nibbles over the web, what’s needed for now is an approach, a paradigm to get a neat interface and logical relationship to the vast and rich mine of free information.

itwire.com: Anti-Linux evangelists try to level many claims against the free open source operating system Linux. Arguments against the base cost (nothing!) or about the turnaround time to repair security exploits don’t work. But there is one item in the anti-Linux arsenal which often hits hard: lack of support.
linuxhaxor.net: Firefox is a great web browser, there is absolutely no argument about that. However those of us who are using linux long enough have went by quite well without it, and some still do. Here is an attempt to list some of the linux browsers actively developed and updated.
lincgeek.org: So it looks like Pat and I had the same idea this weekend. That is to play around with the new OpenSuse 11. Before I started, though, I needed a system I could install on. Live cd’s are great and all, but it’s just not the same.
