blogs.zdnet.com: As an Alameda County jury continues to deliberate the fate of Hans Reiser, the designer of the Reiser File System for Linux who is accused of murdering his wife in late 2006, a key developer on the Reiser4 project acknowledged he is uncertain about its future.
linuxjournal.com: I want to discuss something quite different: whether the open source community should be boycotting Microsoft, and if that is even possible. In part, the trigger for this is Microsoft's recent behaviour during the approval process for its OOXML document format. Now, it seems, Microsoft just can't snuggle up close enough to those cute little open sourcies.
internetling.com: If you’re in a dilemma, just use this post which quickly describes some of the most popular (though not all) desktop environments and window managers. The desktop environments and WMs listed here can easily be downloaded from your distribution’s respective package management system.
linuxworld.com: Operation System (OS) Linux is not well known in Armenia. Often it is used for internet providers and organizations as server. Linux as desktop for workstations is not far in use here in Armenia.

maketecheasier.com: When a seasoned Windows user first migrates to Linux, the first question is always “where is the anti-virus?” I have been asked this question countless time and were always given the “you are lying to me” kind of look when I told them that they don’t need anti-virus software in Linux.
zdnet.co.uk: The Debian GNU/Linux operating system continues to generate interest from developers around the world, keen to sign up and contribute code to the open-source project now in its 15th year.
laserjock.wordpress: Lately I’ve been messing around with Fedora. I’ve been using and developing Ubuntu for over 2 years and I decided to take a little break and try something different. Fedora 8 was really pretty nice. I was very pleasantly surprised to find in Fedora 8 a quick and responsive OS.
blogs.ittoolbox.com: So in part one we disabled unwanted or unneeded programs from starting up when we turn on our computer. However those programs are still installed and taking up space. This space could be better used for other things. Important things like music, movies, recipes or maybe even some work related stuff.
itwire.com: Browser company Opera is preparing its star of the browser stage for its latest performance: Opera 9.5 Beta 2. Is Opera’s latest beta... better?
Matt Asay: I posted a (substantiated) rumor last week about Red Hat getting first dibs on buying SUSE and ultimately passing on it. As it turns out, all sorts of people have come out of the woodwork to give me more information on Red Hat's near-miss on acquiring SUSE.
regdeveloper.co.uk: Sun Microsystems is in talks with two more Linux projects to ensure its open source software and tools are delivered straight into the hands of developers.

- Ubuntu - Even my 8 year old can use it (And he does)
lankan.wordpress: Since the last article I have completely migrated to linux as being my everyday os. I run a standard PCLOS package on a Toshiba A100. When I had learned how to use Linux comfortably I realized that I was playing around in the terminal window more and more. Below are a list of terminal based programs.
sys-con.com: The computer desktop today is what the television was to people in the 1980s. It’s the single most important channel for consumer entertainment and information. The computer desktop – as was the case with newspapers before there was radio and radio before there was television – has become the high ground from which empires are built.
bytebot.net/blog: In an interesting twist (interesting for Microsoft and their OOXML apologists), about a month ago, MAMPU, decided that they were going to go OpenOffice.org and go ODF, and dump Microsoft Office by year-end 2008. Now, you can hold them to their word.
itwire.com: Microsoft PR threw down the gauntlet; “see how Windows Server 2008 stacks up versus Linux,” they say. There’s a “Get the Facts” URL being promoted with claims of direct comparisons between the two operating systems. Anyone reading the headlines alone could be fooled into thinking there’s substance to be found.
computerworld.com.au: Linux, which has been much maligned by Symbian and Microsoft as a non-starter in the handset operating system market, is set to see strong growth as issues with framework fragmentation and silicon requirements are alleviated.
arstechnica.com: European web metrics company Xiti has published browser marketshare statistics for March. The data collected by Xiti indicates that the open source Firefox web browser has climbed to almost 29 percent marketshare in Europe, where it is still steadily increasing in popularity. This is no small accomplishment.
