Limulus: As was pointed out earlier here, PCLinuxOS has dramatically risen in the Distrowatch HPD stats, but in terms of OS share on distrowatch.com itself only has about a quarter of Ubuntu’s and what I wonder about is that if you look at the Google search volume:
the register: It's only a matter of time before Google unveils a full-fledged online operating system. This week, Microsoft's biggest rival rolled out a new version of Docs & Spreadsheets - its online answer to Word and Excel - adding Windows-like folders, an improved search engine, and an all-around prettier interface.
LinuxToday: The language is complex, which some are already complaining about. Novell seems to have "gotten off," which others will complain about. Still others are looking at this license and the pressure Microsoft is trying to put on the community with its patent protection racket and are predicting doom and gloom in the form of a civil war.
linux.com: Greg Kroah-Hartman kicked off the second day of the 9th annual Ottawa Linux Symposium with a talk entitled "Linux Kernel Development - How, What, How fast, and Who?" to a solidly packed main room with an audience of more than 400 people.
internetnews: Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client has made relatively small inroads in the market versus Microsoft's Outlook e-mail program. Lightning and Sunbird are part of the Mozilla Calendar effort.
InfoWorld: The Register reports that the Red Hat Exchange (RHX) "roars like a muted lamb". The Register's point is that RHX has met with a lukewarm reception to date. I wonder if The Register story is missing the point.
shift+backspace: The latest installment of Sidux, 2007-02 codenamed Tartaros, was released on May 28th of this year. Sidux is based on Debian, inparticularly Sid, which is the more modern, or development branch of Debian.
IndiaTimes.com: Powerful, easy to use, bug-free - and best of all - FREE! Linux is becoming the Operating System of choice for many internet aficionados.
linux-watch: I've been following the evolution of this latest version of the seminal open-source license since it was a twinkle in Richard M. Stallman's eye. I have no no doubt that a lot of hard work by some incredibly bright people has gone into making this the best possible software license.
LWN: Voting is open for the Fedora Board elections in which 3 of the 9 seats will be chosen. The candidates are Christopher Aillon, Dennis Gilmore, Bob Jensen, Brian Pepple, Jef Spaleta and Rahul Sundaram.
sheehantu: After reading Mohammad’s blog post about Google Desktop, I thought I’d take it for a spin since I’m a GDS fan when I’m on XP. Though I’ve only been using it for two days, I soon realized that I am going back to Tracker. Here’s why:
element14: Suppose you need to do a batch operation on a large set of pictures? Although Gimp is an extremely powerful tool for image editing and processing, it is still very time consuming to do a series of tasks on a large list of images in GIMP without wasting a lot of time.
The Jem Report: The GNU General Public License version 3 is unleashed to the world today, ready and willing to conquer perceived problems with the legal system in the U.S. and other countries. The FSF tells us that the new restrictions in the GPLv3, on patents, patent licensing, and hardware capabilities, are there to make us more free.
Raiden's Realm: Xandros is a distribution of Linux descended from Debian and built on the Debian framework. Unlike Debian though, Xandros is built more with a profiteering mindset, a philosophy that has slowly alienated it from the Linux community, more so lately after their announced affiliation with Microsoft.
kaki5: If network manager does not solve the problem, the first step should be to see which driver your wireless card needs. Do a search for your card on Google and in the Ubuntu Forums to find out which driver you need. Many of the drivers are already included in Ubuntu, but some newer drivers may not be present.
After 18 months of revision, the Free Software Foundation has released version 3 of the General Public License (GPL).

Penguin Pete: Let's make one thing perfectly clear: Microsoft wants Linux dead. Four words that tell you all you need to know about how Microsoft and Linux relate. Microsoft wants Linux dead. Write it down.
InformIT: To keep your system in optimum shape, you need to be able to monitor it closely. Ubuntu provides a wealth of utilities designed to give you as little or as much feedback as you want. In this sample chapter, Paul and Andrew Hudson look at some of the basic monitoring tools and cover some tactics designed to keep your system up longer.
