This week’s Open Source Business Conference was a strange meeting. What is apparent is that in the open source software Red Hat’s no longer exciting. Here are some of the companies that may well be the new open source superstars.

dailytech.com: With the release of Firefox 3 imminent, the rest of the Firefox team is cooking up some crazy ideas for Firefox 4. Mozilla is pushing strongly for two very different new lines of research: Prism and Weave.
phoronix.com: Earlier this month we took a look at the NVIDIA Quadro FX1700, which is one of NVIDIA's mid-range workstation graphics cards that boasts 512MB of video memory. Today we are looking at the NVIDIA Linux workstation performance once again but this time it's on the mobile front with the Quadro NVS 140M.
tippingpoint.com/blog: Yesterday, on day two of the contest, the MacBook Air was successfully compromised first. So at the end of the last day of the contest, only the Sony VAIO laptop running Ubuntu was left standing.
itwire.com: Red Hat has just released some remarkable results for the first US quarter. In a couple of years, it might find such achievements a mite harder to come by if the views of those who participated in a survey about open source recently are valid.
LinuxToday: What's at the forefront of my crabbiness is the almost-complete capture of the Open Source Business Conference's news cycle by Brad Smith's presence at that conference left me wondering who else was even there this week, other than Smith, Matt Asay, and a few pundits and luminaries.
popularmechanics.com: When Arthur C. Clarke died last week at the age of 90, science fiction—hell, science in general—lost one of its greatest, most forward-looking masters. In his honor, PM’s resident geek and sci-fi buff analyzes the most eerily predictive, prescient films of the future. They’re not necessarily the best movies—just the ones that got the science right, or will sometime soon.
downloadsquad.com: Do you remember our youth? The good times we had, the games we played, and that great discussion we had about what makes a window manager different from a desktop environment? Then our relationship sort of got stuck on desktop environments.
FOSSwire: Ulteo is an interesting concept. Rather than being just another Linux distribution, founder Gaël Duval (previously of Mandriva fame), wants to simplify the way you use your computer and your digital life. Apparently.

news.com (blog): Intel's low-cost Atom processors will be at the core of inexpensive PCs. And inexpensive computers these days often come with Linux. How do PC companies shave off the last hundred dollars or so to get to $299 or in some cases $199? Easy.
Dana Blankenhorn: I’m not trying to be political here. But what seems to upset most people about Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton for that matter, is this habit of parsing. Microsoft also likes to have it both ways. They want to be seen as cooperating with open source, but
hardware.no: Draco Linux and similar distributions, are often referred to as KISS-distributions (Keep It Simple, Stupid!). One of the most popular KISS distributions to date is called Arch Linux which, compared to Draco, has a much larger community and number of developers. To help us understand what make Arch Linux so great, we've asked the lead-developer - Aaron Griffin - some questions.
computerworlduk.com: Aaron Seigo joined the KDE project, which produces a free software desktop system for Linux and Unix platforms, in 2000 and is sponsored by Trolltech. Here he describes how porting KDE4 to Windows and MacOS will enable Kontact, the Open Source groupware application, to challenge the dominance of Microsoft Outlook in the enterprise.
slashgear.com: Desktops starting with Dell have begun being sold with Linux pre-installed, almost all of the new UMPC Eee-like notebooks that are selling with Linux, and lots of new computers are getting SLED certified. It has me wondering why there hasn’t been a spike in Linux’s market share?
linuxfud.wordpress: IDM’s UltraEdit is arguably the world’s best text editor…for Windows. I first used it in 2002 as part of a basic programming tool set provided by my client at the time. I was hooked. Alas, my conversion to Linux several years ago forced me to abandon UltraEdit. I check the UltraEdit user forums from time to time, and what did I see?
labs.opera.com: Two days ago Opera reached a 100/100 pass rate on the Acid3 test for the first time. I am pleased to announce the first public build with a 100/100 pass rate and pixel-perfect rendering!
junauza.com: “At 25 MB, it has to be the smallest desktop distro ever created”. These were the words of Ladislav Bodnar in the most recent issue of Distrowatch Weekly when he announced this fresh and minuscule distribution as a new addition to the waiting list.
