osweekly.com: One has to admit, regardless of their feelings of just how idiotic the idea behind Digital Rights Management (DRM) may be, it is frustrating to watch the other two platforms have content we cannot enjoy ourselves. Well, it took long enough, but it appears that finally, there is real light at the end of the rainbow.
brajeshwar.com: Installing software on Linux is not only easier than most of us think, but it also has some special features which help software’s to be updated automatically!
linuxhaxor.net: With each iteration of windows OS Microsoft has made it less friendlier for linux to be installed along with windows. Linux is all about choices, and I believe the users should have the choice to switch back and forth into whatever OS they want to.
pcworld.com: Microsoft has become a sponsor of The Open Source Census, a project started earlier this year that aims to track and catalog the use of open-source software in enterprises worldwide, the group announced Monday.

blog.freeside.fr: Almost 5 years have passed since I erased my Microsoft Windows partitions to switch to Mandriva Linux. However, I try to keep myself informed of what happens in the Windows world, just to be able to help relatives when they're in trouble. Yesterday, I had a Windows box to cure. Here's what I was painfully reminded:
phoronix.com: Following our article looking at the state of X.Org (along with announcing the release of X Server 1.4.1), we proceeded to share the contributors behind the X Server. What we hadn't looked at in that analysis was the people and companies behind the work on Mesa 3D, or the OpenGL component used by X. In this article, however, we have these statistics to share.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Quite a long time ago (maybe in 2000), people started talking about the Slashdot effect. Being Slashdotted meant (and still means) that a truckload of computers online suddenly decide to access your site. The results on your servers used to be disastrous. I think I ought to attempt something brave: I would like to coin a new word: the Groklaw effect.
arstechnica.com: The relationship of mutual benefit that exists between mobile device makers and the open source development community on which they increasingly depend presents a unique paradox. Specifically, advancing the development of free software sometimes necessitates compromises that limit software freedom, particularly when it comes to providing open-source support for technologies like DRM.
blogs.gnome.org/lucasr: Ok, now that I’ve already made my point about our great achievements, it’s time to talk about the big questions. People have different expectations and perspectives about GNOME and hence they define the “decadence” and, consequently, the possible solutions, in different ways.

celettu.wordpress: I’ve seen a lot of articles lately about the release of Banshee 1.0, the Gnome music player “written in C# on the Mono platform using GNOME technologies.” I do get curious however when people claim that Banshee will replace Rhythmbox as the default Gnome media player on their system. I’ve used Rhythmbox. It’s pretty good. I was curious what Banshee had to offer.
daniweb.com/blog: Yes, it's Sunday again and you know what that means--Crystal Ball Sunday and new predictions for Linux and Open Source for the coming months. This week I probe application and operating system interoperability.
cooltechzone.com: We all know what each offers, but which one best fits different type of users? In this article, I hope to better answer that particular question. And of course, all platforms will be considered, not just Linux.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Every field has its own key individuals who donated much of their time to the ideas they believed in. Their work affects large chunks of the world’s population, and bring amazing changes to the way we see and experience the world. The free software world has its own heroes.
hydrapinion.com: To me, web browsers are like operating systems – the sooner we don’t have to care about them the better. The day they just sit in the background and let us do what we need to do, quickly and efficiently, will be a happy day indeed.
