blog.lizardwrangler.com: Today is a special day. March 31, 1998 is the date that Mozilla was officially launched. Today I want to look at our first ten years, and a bit at the next ten years.

ibeentoubuntu.com: At the Pwn to Own competition, participants were awarded money and prizes for hacking into various operating systems, and Ubuntu came out as the winner over Mac OSX and MS Vista. Ubuntu was left standing, the apparent winner. And the crowd rejoiced. The blogosphere resounded with choruses of how great Ubuntu is. I say it's all BS.
linux-mag.com: NTFS support has been slow in coming to Linux. But new drivers are now available that enable you to read from, and even to write to, NTFS partitions, including removable media formatted with NTFS. We show you how.
bethesignal.org/blog: During a thread about daylight savings confusion here in Sydney, Martin Barry asked the SLUG list why updates to Ubuntu packages go into a separate “updates” repository. John Ferlito suggested that I blog my answer…

ubuntufs.wordpress: I’ve been following the progress of this game for over four years, but up until now I’ve been a bit reluctant to recommend it to anyone. It was originally too much like the Mario Bros games, support for joysticks/pads and other controllers wasn’t very good and the game itself just didn’t feel playable enough. That’s all about to change though as version 1.5 is on the horizon and shaping up very nicely indeed.

opensource.org: An Information Week article published last week appears to position Microsoft as trying to do something right when it comes to open source. And it positions the open source community as being not quite ready to make nice after past insults, threats, and abuse.
news.com: Early reports Sunday indicate that Office Open XML (OOXML) appears to have enough votes to be certified an ISO standard. An official tally is not expected until Monday.
securityblog.org: During my tenure at Gentoo, running the Hardened Gentoo project, the most common question by far was “How do I secure my system?” There are different kinds of security that you might want to implement, and lots of different solutions to attain them.
