kevincarmony.blogspot: After failing to get any response from Linspire as to why they are not holding annual shareholder meetings, I asked them publicly to do so in my last blog. Not only has Linspire not held a shareholders meeting, but to this day, they have not even responded to my inquiries with so much as a "we'll get back to you on that."
ostatic.com: Many people love Linux but aren't able to commit to using it full time. Some folks use certain peripherals that Linux can't yet accommodate, while others need applications for which suitable open source options don't yet exist. Fortunately, virtualization makes it possible to put your favorite Linux distribution right on your Mac or Windows PC.
linux.com: I came away from the second annual Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit with mixed feelings. I mean, it's hard not to support the group that pays Linus Torvalds to spend his time continuing to lead the poster-boy project for free and open source software. But at the same time, those golden chains are my biggest concern about the Linux Foundation.
linuxtoday.com: It might not be entirely evident from the headlines, but if you read the articles, it will become immediately clear: these positive statements about Linux and negative statements about Windows are courtesy of analysts.
crn.com: Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. There is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching.
reviewlinux.com: USB Key Linux distributions seem to be the craze at the moment. The Mandriva Flash 2008 4 gig USB Key is bundled on a Dane-Elec USB Key. It's sturdy construction and proven reliability makes Dane-Elec a good chioce for Mandriva to place their OS on.
Dana Blankenhorn: Gartner analysts are running about in Las Vegas, hair on fire, shouting that Windows is collapsing. Or about to collapse. This is easy to get snarky about, but for Linux’ sake I hope it never happens.

newscientist.com: One of the founding fathers of "free software" and an esteemed elder of the hacking community, Richard Stallman has made defending people's freedoms his life's work. His advocacy of personal freedoms extends to the protection of true democracy and of the human rights increasingly being trampled on in the US and elsewhere.
linuxjournal.com: As the release of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS rapidly approaches, the all important question is beginning to form in everyone's mind. Upgrade, or freshly install.

raiden.net: When it comes to desktop publishing, a lot of people might think of big organizations producing newsletters, or your local boy scouts producing a fund raising flier. But the average person out there might not see where any kind of desktop publishing is really needed. Honestly, if you really look deeply, you might be surprised.
phoronix.com: Last week it was exclusively reported by Phoronix that a new NVIDIA binary Linux display driver should be out in the next week, and sure enough we were right, again. The NVIDIA 173.08 Linux driver was released last night and features support for several new NVIDIA GPUs, including the GeForce 9800 series, experimental support for X Server 1.5, and a number of fixes with Linux 2.6.25 kernel compatibility.
universal-interop-council.org: Circumstantial evidence is mounting of one or more private deals having been struck to approve DIS-29500 Office Open XML ("OOXML") as an international standard, a deal that may have played a role in several key national standardization bodies changing their voting position to approve OOXML.

Many times, shell scripts evolve into menu-based scripts, and the scripter wants to display more to users than simply scrolling text. Regardless of the complexity, scripters have always needed a way to change their output to bold, underline it, reverse the highlights, and so on. That's where tput comes into play.
blogs.the451group: “The question is not why use open source, but how to best use open source,” wrote Matt Asay earlier this week. It was a throwaway point but one that I think deserves more attention.
ostatic.com: If you want to search for a piece of text on the Web, you probably turn to Google or a similar search engine. But how can you integrate search into your Web site? You can build your own search engine, or hope to find an open-source alternative.
ckunte.com: It’s a strange feeling, but I really enjoy booting up and using Ubuntu—as my primary OS at home, like I have felt for no other before. I am neither a linux kernel diver, nor a developer. I’m just this regular guy.
A friend is soliticing advice for a project he's working on. It involves a small library that needs one of its computers limited to only a browser accessing one website where the card catalogue is stored.
computerworlduk.com: One of the most vexed questions within the open source world is when, if ever, GNU/Linux will take off on the desktop. Strangely, this isn't really about capabilities: as someone who has Ubuntu running on both of his main systems, I can attest to the fact that GNU/Linux is not just usable, it's a downright pleasure to use.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Recently, in this column, I spoke about how we can lose our free software choices if we don’t use them. Sticking with that choice is not always easy so how do we get others to make it, particularly in a world where the choice is often made for them. How can we advocate free software in a world where others don’t seem to care?
linux.com: When we looked at Flock 0.9 last year, the social Web browser showed a lot of potential. Now that it's over the 1.0 hump, the Flock team has made good on the application's promise. Maybe too good -- while Flock serves up a lot of content on a single page, you practically need super-powers to take it all in.
