linux.com: Big Buck Bunny is the colorful product of the Peach open movie project: an animated short released online and on DVD. But in addition to the 'toon itself, Peach has produced an altogether different yield: improvements to the Blender 3-D modeling application.
linuxjournal.com: The Linux Journal recently published an article I wrote on Jean-Pierre Lemoine's AVSynthesis, a program designed for artists working with the computer as a medium for the synthesis of image and sound. I'm fascinated by that program, so I decided to research the existence of similar software. This article presents the current findings from that research.

cookingwithlinux.com: Over at Practical Tech Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols suggests that it may be time for a fork of KDE, mostly because he doesn't believe that KDE 4.1 is heading in the right direction. All this discussion, and yes, criticism, is also good. Evolution doesn't just move forwards. It moves sideways.
lockergnome.com: Ars Technica has an article expounding upon the changes to the next revision of Ubuntu. The tale begins with news that the upcoming release will include support for the sub-notebooks based upon the Intel Atom processor. Very nice, but what portion of the market will be using these things?
foogazi.com: I’ve been wondering if using Linux actually makes me more productive. I can think of a few reasons why a Linux user may be more productive but I can also counter those reasons with ways running Linux can make you unproductive.
seanrtilley.blogspot: So, I've decided to do something REALLY out of the ordinary for me. My friend Steven said that I don't understand enough about Linux. Fair enough. To completely immerse myself in tech know-how, I am going to use my computer every day...with nothing but a command line.

blogs.zdnet.com: As the Open Source Census grinds on (over 250,000 installations so far) it occurs to me just how useful it can be for an enterprise to participate. You might learn something you can profit from.
blogs.ittoolbox.com: Linux is ready for the desktop. It can handle one hundred percent of all business tasks. If you are willing to break the proprietary nipple sucking that is. Yet enterprise still pulls out the same old excuses for not adopting Linux.
blogs.zdnet.com: OK, so over the past few months I’ve grown from being a Linux skeptic into being quite a Linux fan. I’ve still got lots to learn but it’s great having the ability to roll out a no-cost OS onto systems that don’t need to have Windows on them. That said, there are a few aspects of Linux that do annoy/frustrate/anger me/make me hulk out.
jonobacon.org: Today we announced that we have decided to call it a day with LugRadio. Our last show will be LugRadio Live UK 2008 on the 19th and 20th July 2008 at The Lighthouse in Wolverhampton.
cybernetnews.com: Video tutorials are one of the easiest ways to figure out how to do something and for many people making the switch to Linux is one of the hardest things to do. So, why not make a bunch of video tutorials for Linux to make things a little easier?
