moral-flexibility.net/blog: My old version of XP was long overdue to be reinstalled. At almost 4 years old it was cludging like mad, and desperately needed cleanup. I’d been considering switching to Ubuntu ever since I’d installed it on the surveillance system DVR, but was concerned.
it.toolbox.com/blogs: No doubt about it. Linux is the fastest operating system in use today. And you can have it all for free. Ever since its humble beginnings, written by a guy crazed with the bite of a charging penguin, Linux has improved by leaps and bounds. So why is Linux the fastest operating system?
heise-online.co.uk: Since the big leap forward to MySQL 5.0, it's taken the MySQL development team three years, during which there have been a whole string of pre-release versions, to release the new version 5.1 of the popular database. MySQL 5.1.30 (General Availability) is available to download from various mirrors.

internetling.com: Even though I am a strong advocate of learning as much as you can about using the command line, I admit I like my GUI a lot (and Compiz of course ). The CLI can be really useful for repairing your system or just doing some task that takes far more clicks in the graphical interface.
mmartinsoftware.blogspot: I've been running Fedora for some time at home and on several work computers--most recently the latest Fedora 10 development branches. I ventured out to try OpenSuse, and brought in Beta 5. I must admit, I was blown away.
phoronix.com: We last talked about Tux3 file-system in September and just this past week the project's Daniel Phillips has shared a progress report. Up until recently, work on the Tux3 file-system was done as a Linux FUSE module, but work is well underway in a kernel port for Tux3.
blogs.techrepublic.com: If you’re new to Linux, a few common mistakes are likely to get you into trouble. Learn about them up front so you can avoid major problems as you become increasingly Linux-savvy.
workswithu.com: For years, free-software advocates have asserted that Linux is ready for the mainstream desktop. Critics have responded that, sure, Linux has come a long way since 1991, but it’s still not for ‘average users’. Until grandmothers can get an Ubuntu system up and running without having to hack a wireless driver or an xorg.conf file, we’re told, the Linux user base will remain limited.
heise-online.co.uk: The Linux on the iPhone project has released the first results of its work. The current port of Linux includes a bootloader, OpeniBoot, which allows the user to select booting either the iPhone OS or the Linux port.
codingexperiments.com: Mac users are very proud of their oh-so-shiny operating system and hardware. They have to be. Mac users paid good money for their system, and it would be quite a big waste of they weren’t proud of it.
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: It's actually kind of unfortunate that many of the folks who work on providing OpenSource software don't get the recognition, or at least the respect they deserve.

blogbeebe.blogspot: The release Thursday of OpenSUSE 11.1 RC 'incited' me to download the KDE-based Open CD version and give it a spin. I've been tracking KDE 4.1 across three distributions (Mandriva 2009, Fedora 10, and OpenSUSE). Kubuntu in any version is one of the worst ways to experience KDE.
ryanorser.com: Mandriva has been great for users who just like to have something that looks peaceful and easy to use. For new users with laptops I would recommend Mandriva One 2009 as it has a better background and supports wireless….
beranger.org: Only a site like Softpedia can post an article such as Newly Discovered Kernel Vulnerabilities Affect All Ubuntu Users, which starts this way: «Yesterday, November 27th, the Ubuntu developers discovered yet another security issue (actually, more than one) in the Linux kernel packages.» On the contrary, they were late to fix those kernel vulnerabilities...
blogs.computerworld: I have a confession to make. There's no software on earth I can't make dance and sing... except for photography programs. Whether it's Adobe Photoshop CS4 on a Mac or GIMP 2.6.3 on Linux, I'm a klutz.

mwendariungu.wordpress: Most of us are still holding on to ancient Linux distros whose operation may involve extensive use of command line tools made necessary by the need to install software from external sources.
