linux-mag.com: Social media addict or social media newbie? Either way, we’ve got four must-have Firefox extensions that will make using popular social media sites much easier and more seamless within the world’s most popular open source browser.
toolbox.com/blogs: There are so many articles out on the internet tubes that I don't know which one to shake a stick at. So to prevent my brain from going totally rusty I decided to pull out some points of what Linux can not do.
itnewstoday.com: KDE 4.3 is a great desktop, but there are improvements I think should be made to make it perfect. I’m hoping some of these ideas will be considered for the next release.
blog.thesilentnumber.me: We already love System76 for being truly dedicated to open source and offering Ubuntu exclusively on their entire lineup, so naturally we simply must ask for more! I have five simple, but big requests:
dedoimedo.com: CentOS is not your everyday Linux. It's a server distribution, meant to be used in production environment where users do not care about what applications they have installed. It's a distro that you will most likely run without any GUI, reboot once every other year or so, if that, and upgrade only when you really must. What I'm going to do today is a sort of a capital sin.
linuxloop.com: In the age of digital photography, almost everyone performs at least a few edits on their photos. For simple thing, programs like F-Spot or Google’s Picasa may be enough, but you may also need something more. That’s where Gimp does an excellent job.

mybroadband.co.za: Ubuntu stands out as the most popular Linux distribution but which other versions make up the top ten?
workswithu.com: WorksWithU reported a couple weeks ago on new features in Ubuntu 9.10, like kernel mode setting and GRUB 2, that are likely to please geeks. But Ubunti 9.10 (codenamed Karmic Koala) will also sport changes aimed at traditional users. Here’s a look at a few of them.
bbc.co.uk: The computer world is notorious for its obsession with what is new. Anything that survives for more than one generation of processors deserves a nod. Think then what the Unix operating system deserves because in August 2009, it celebrates its 40th anniversary.
techtarget.com: More than 90% of all commercial Linux server subscriptions are from Novell and Red Hat, with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), respectively. A Gartner report gives Red Hat more than 60% of the paid Linux market, and Novell more than 30%. Why is Red Hat the Linux market share leader?
danlynch.org/blog: This week I revisited a distribution I first wrote about back in 2007, Pardus Linux. It’s developed by the Turkish National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptography, it has its own package management system called PISI (Packages Installed Successfully, as Intended), and it’s not based on any other Linux distribution, which makes quite a change these days. I was eager to see how it had developed since our last encounter.
desktoplinuxreviews.com: I thought I’d take a look at Austrumi Linux in this review. Austrumi Linux is based on Slackware and is pretty tiny in terms of size, weighing in at about 108MB.
linuxtoday.com: All in all, I think Free Software users know from practical experience how to question and why to question; we also have learned about freedom in a way that most people don't get to--as a practical reality, an experience, not just a slogan.
linux-mag.com: The state of web multimedia on Linux is pitiful. Proprietary codecs, plug-ins and closed standards are helping to keep Linux a second rate citizen. What Linux needs is not another proprietary framework like Moonlight, but more open standards. Can Google help by making YouTube a Theora-fest?
bushweed.blogspot: I'm a big advocate of Open Source software. However Open Source has it's flaws. The contribution model may be one of it's greatest strengths, but is also a big weakness.
tuxradar.com: It's something of a tradition that we pit the latest version of Windows against our trusty old operating system. This isn't because we want to raise the profile of Windows, or ignite further flamewars on which is better or worse. It's about understanding the market and understanding the competition.
readwriteweb.com: Late last year, we boldly proclaimed that your next computer might be a Linux PC. Thanks to the ever-growing market for the low-end machines dubbed "netbooks," this seemed like a real possibility at the time. But then...
