eyemeansit.blogspot: As I mentioned in an earlier post, I used Mepis for quite a while, back in the Mepis 6 days. I have to say that I am very glad to see that they have gone back to using a Debian base and repositories instead of Ubuntu (which is Debian based). Why put one more layer of complexity between you and Debian?

linux.com: Few free and open source software projects have attracted such a range of reactions as Mono.

blogs.eweek: For the past six years or so, I've watched the suite progress slowly but steadily toward the goal of being "just as good" as Microsoft Office. For my needs, OpenOffice.org has been better than good enough. Given the rise of these Web-based alternatives it's worth asking whether OpenOffice.org will continue to matter as we move forward.

tectonic.co.za: Debian, the granddaddy of Linux distributions, is in trouble. Its planned September release date for Lenny - its latest release - has come and gone and there is still no sign of the new product. It seems the Debian team is battling “too many release critical bugs” to make Lenny viable. And now the team is calling for help from the community to squash the remainder of these bugs.
Andreas Jaeger: I have served as chairperson of the openSUSE board the last year and would like to announce that I decided to pass the honours on for the next election period.
