Matt Asay: I admire Linus Torvalds' candor (This is the guy who freely admits his own family doesn't use the Linux desktop, after all), as well as his foresight. In an excellent interview, Torvalds covers a range of topics, including the Linux operating system's place in history:
opensuse.org: Exactly one year ago the openSUSE News site went live to provide users with the latest news and an event calendar. 19 authors posting under their own names and some one-time contributors wrote 246 stories (of which 122 were submitted to Digg) and filled the calendar with 170 entries.
linux.com: Last weekend a friend was moaning about endless problems with Windows XP on his desktop PC. We installed Ubuntu 7.04 on it. The problems went away. That started me thinking about my own "daily driver" computer, a Dell Latitude that also runs Ubuntu 7.04, and it made me realize that I hadn't thought about my laptop or its operating system in many months.
justlookdifferent.com: In openSUSE there is a feature called Auto-Login. In short it means that the root can decide which user account should be started as default upon boot, without displaying a login prompt. Though for me it is a possible weakness in my security management.
saleem-khan.blogspot: Recently I faced two incidents when I had to format my flash drive as it would simply refuse to open at all just because it was infected with some nasty viruses from my office computers.
fabrizioballiano.net: A quick resume of what the most important (IMHO) things users will get with the next Ubuntu release: Intrepid Ibex

phoronix.com: While AMD's financial outlook has been bleak with it closing down 12% today, if you're a Linux user -- particularly one with a quad-core Phenom processor -- there is good news to report from the AMD camp.
0xdeadbeef.com: I think that the GNOME project is in a really strange place right now. Others called it “decadence” but I’ve been thinking of it more as a state of transition. Things are changing in GNOME and I think that it’s largely just a reflection of time.
mandriva.com: Lately it's hard to avoid the buzz about netbooks - the small, cheap laptop systems that were popularized by the Asus Eee PC (which, of course, Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring supports very well). Many in the community have asked if Mandriva is going to get directly involved in this market. Well, the answer is yes!
blogs.the451group: Dana Blankenhorn states that “Open source should support Apple over Psystar”. I have to disagree. My perspective is not based on his views on contracts and licenses (although you can read plenty about that in the talkback section) but on a couple of other issues:
thevarguy.com: Microsoft’s stock dropped sharply today because the company’s latest quarterly profits didn’t quite meet Wall Street’s expectations. Meanwhile, The VAR Guy and other open source bloggers continue to hype Red Hat and Linux as growing threats to Microsoft. But before you suggest open source will destroy Microsoft’s profits, take a look at these stagging financial figures.
mozillalinks.org: Flock has released the second beta of its forthcoming Flock 2, the Firefox-based web browser that features tight integration with most of the most popular social web services. Flock 2 beta 2 is based on Firefox 3 (3.0.1 actually) code base.
crn.com: Word was that Torvalds had apologized to OpenBSD developers. ChannelWeb asked the Linux guru if that were true and whether he had any second thoughts on his initial e-mail "flame." Here is his response:
mylro.org: Linux and UNIX-like operating systems in general are regarded as being more secure for the common user, in contrast with operating systems that have "Windows" as part of their name. Why is that?
cybernetnews.com: Now that Mozilla has shipped Firefox 3.0 they have begun working on the next milestone that’s due out at the end of 2008. Firefox 3.1 Alpha (code named Shiretoko) is should be released on July 25th.
opensuse.org: Former webservers administrator and presales consultant at S.u.S.E. he is currently working as a technical writer contributing to the openSUSE documentation and openSUSE web skin an wiki. Today you have the opportunity to meet Frank Sundermeyer!
simple-talk.com: Linus Torvalds is remarkable, not only for being the technical genius who wrote Linux, but for then being able to inspire and lead an enormous team of people to devote their free time to work on the operating system and bring it to maturity. We sent Richard Morris off to interview Linus, and find out more.
thevarguy.com: It’s finally official. Dell’s Ubuntu Linux PCs now come with the latest build of the operating system, version 8.04. That may not seem like news, but it’s actually a significant move by Dell. Here’s why.
