As we all know, there are a vast amount of applications available for Linux. People outside the Linux scene will probably have heard and used the most famous open source apps, but there are a select few programs that are either insanely cool and innovative, or just extremely polished.
makeuseof.com: I have way too much stuff. I managed to find four open source programs that all call themselves “collection managers.” That is, they all claim to make it easy to catalog and keep track of your collections of things like books, movies, and CDs.
brajeshwar.com: If you plan to get your Linux knowledge a formal nurturing, an online course may be something you would be interested in! These courses would be beneficial for people interested to master the art of Linux.
zdnetasia.com/blogs: Last month, I had a good opportunity to visit Xi'an Software Park with SUN, Intel and Red flag for 'Open source In Day'. This is second time I went to Xian, the event also let me more understand the development of software in this ancient city.
itwire.com: Microsoft are poised to launch a new $USD 300 million advertising campaign this week, starring comedian Jerry Seinfeld among others. The marketing types responsible are intending to counter Apple’s successful "I’m a Mac" line, but the slogan picked out is simply on the wrong foot from the start and is thwarted by Linux immediately.
internetling.com: In the recent years, podcasting has been gaining momentum and today we have a multitude of podcasts for almost every topic, including my favorite (and yours, I hope), GNU/Linux. Instead of listening to the same song over and over, why not educate yourself about the latest in open source technology?
Boxee is an open, connected and social media center for Linux and OSX (Windows not supported yet). At the moment it is still in an Alpha stadium, but I haven’t had much problems with it. You will need an invite to be able to use Boxee, not to worry, I’m giving them away.
briancarper.net: After countless, endless hours of nagging on my part, my girlfriend finally put Linux on her laptop. I thought it would be interesting to hear what a long-time Windows-using non-programmer thinks of Linux (Kubuntu in this case) after a few weeks of use. So I interviewed her.
blog.ibeentoubuntu.com: Ever since I watched the fledgling Free Software movement take hold a few years ago in Thailand, I've thought that the current trend of what I'll call "appliancising" was the natural end game for Free Software (and really all OSes in general).

SimplePie is a PHP library that can fetch, cache, parse, and normalize RSS and Atom feeds. It allows you to display the newest articles from websites with RSS or Atom feeds on your own site. This is a great way to add new, fresh, and relevant information to your site.
debaday.debian.net: DevTodo is a simple command-line-based package to keep todo lists. Lists are prioritized and hierarchical. Each task in the list has a priority (very high, low, medium etc.) and a given task can be linked to another todo database, making the list hierarchical.
blogbeebe.blogspot: Long ago, in the halcyon days of 2006 while I was basking in the goodness of Suse 10.2, I happened to come across Bug Buddy. I'll let you read the details, but the real story is what happened next.
kdedevelopers.org: This is the 3rd tutorial in this series, trying to show how effective KDE photography applications can be for fixing and/or improving your photographs overall. In this third part we will continue addressing the light issues, but we will target color issues rather than brightness issues.
practical-tech.com: On a superficial level, Novell’s third quarter, which ended July 31, 2008, didn’t look that good. A closer look reveals though that Novell did quite well in general and extremely well with its Linux business.
phoronix.com: Along with VIA releasing a new open-source X.Org video driver, there is work underway on improving the status of another open-source graphics driver. Silicon Motion is perhaps more obscure than VIA Technologies when it comes to integrated graphics, but they primarily specialize in low-power graphics chips for tablet PCs.

junauza.com: The upcoming release of Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) is highly anticipated not only for the system enhancements it will likely get, but also for its new default theme. I decided to collect 10 beautiful existing GTK 2.x themes that I think can be further improved or altered and be used as the default desktop theme for Intrepid Ibex.

Here are 10 features that would be great additions to a future KDE release that I hope the developers will consider.
