john.jubjubs.net: It’s been a very busy 24 hours for Mozilla folks around the world — as our 24 hour initial period draws to a close, I wanted to put a few things into perspective. This is the first post of what will no doubt be many analysis posts, so here are a few things that have happened during the first official day of Firefox 3 life:
theinquirer.net: The challenge almost ran out of steam when the High Court threw the challenge out and the UKUUG realised it didn't have enough money to file an appeal. But Alain Williams, UKUUG chairman, said: "We are trying to raise a bit more but we've got sufficient backing to appeal and go forward."
phoronix.com: In AMD's usual fashion, this afternoon they have announced the release of new display drivers for both Linux and Windows. The Catalyst 8.6 release for Linux introduces a few bug fixes, version 2.0 of their driver installation API, and a few unannounced features are present.
computerworld.com: kay, I have to admit I was a bit concerned when I downloaded Version 9.5 of Opera, which shipped June 13. At first glance, this lean, mean browsing machine seemed to be showing signs of middle-age spread.
theregister.co.uk: 2008 is proving to be a banner year for Linux distributions; so far we've seen Ubuntu 8.04 and Fedora 9, both of which go a long way toward making Linux painless for newbies.

robertogaloppini.net: Profoss last week organised an event on OpenOffice.org deployments in professional environments. The event was opened by Roberto Galoppini, who talked about the approach and methodology available for a successful OpenOffice.org migration.
webhop.org: I support Linux and the free software movement. I appreciate all the hard work that the community has put into free software. However, we need a solid base of what Linux is. Every distribution their own package management, file system structure, and set of tools that is different.
penguinway.net: DSL 4.4 was just released on June 9th, so this past weekend I installed it on my Compaq Deskpro Pentium III 800 Mhz machine. It only has 256 megs of RAM, so a lightweight distribution like DSL is a good choice for it.
raiden.net: One of the hallmark Linux distributions for new users that we've been very pleased with has been Linux Mint. As I've said before, it's built on Ubuntu and is essentially "Ubuntu done right". With the introduction of version 5, Linux Mint has upped [the] level.
csmonitor.com: In South Africa a “free” download here can end up costing almost $100. This is where the Freedom Toaster comes in. “What if open-source can really be open-source, even here?” he says, scrolling through a menu of possible downloads on the happy orange screen.
osweekly.com: Everyone is familiar with PCLinuxOS by now. And most of us have preconceived thoughts and opinions on this Linux distribution. And yet, I could not get my head around the attraction of this distro over Ubuntu, Simply Mepis, Linux Mint, Freespire or any other beginner-friendly Linux release.
