phoronix.com: Last year ASUS had christened the Eee PC as a cost-effective but well built sub-notebook (or now known as a "netbook") that ended up being extremely popular with more people than just computer enthusiasts. In this article we are providing our first look at the Eee PC 901 along with a few bits of information and sharing some of our plans for the Eee Linux testing in the near future.
ostatic.com: This post from Matt Asay on whether open source needs consolidation asks an interesting question, and some of the comments that came in on it were interesting. This comment caught my eye: "No. Open source does not need consolidation. Open source needs product managers."
linuxfud.wordpress: As Microsoft is chided by the media and in the blogosphere about its decision to hire comedian Jerry Seinfeld as the new Vista spokesperson, I ponder just who the Linux community would hire as their representative.
linuxinsider.com: After nearly five years, I needed to update my personal computer. My old Dell Inspiron has long since been rendered quaint by advances in processor speed and hard drive capacity. Rather than buy a new machine running Windows Vista or take the Mac plunge, I decided to walk the open source walk.
dthomasdigital.wordpress: I love my XM radio, yes you have to pay for it but I’m a big fan of the content. Another nice feature is that XM streams most channels on the Internet. When I first started XM if you where a Linux user you where just plane out of luck.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I’ve never used Suse or openSuse. I’ve been a “loyal” Fedora user since Fedora Core 1 and I have Ubuntu on my laptop since it had awesome laptop support. It’s been a few years and nothing horrible has happened because of the Microsoft pact and it came as a liveDVD in the latest Linux Format Magazine.
Also: On openSUSE, sorta
Jim Zemlin: Declaring victory for the Linux desktop at the end of the day will based upon looking at market penetration of Linux based clients vs. Windows and other operating systems. I believe this is still the best measure but we may finally be able to declare this year the breakout of the Linux desktop.
somethinggoodenough.com: It seems as if Netbooks are the newest craze. I may even sell more of these Linux-loaded bad boys, then I do regular laptops. These netbooks are the introduction to Linux that these users get, and in my opinion its a horrible first look, at what Linux truly is.
Matthew Aslett: A couple of article have been published recently that point to a growing realisation/admission about the role that open source will play in the future of enterprise software. It is worth remembering that open source is a business tactic, not a business model.
linuxloop.com: I think everyone would agree that there is no definitive way to be able to say for sure what each OS’s marketshare is. It just is not technically possible at this point, as far I know. It [is] perfectly possible that Linux’s marketshare is, in fact, closer to 15% or 30%,
theinquirer.net: ELONEX WEBBOOKS that are preloaded with Ubuntu Linux and currently featured at Carphone Warehouse in Bracknell, UK are apparently is such high demand that thieving opportunists stole a display model.
direct2dell.com: Today we're rolling out two new laptops and desktops that are designed to meet the specific needs of small businesses, government and educational facilities operating on a limited budget in the worlds top emerging markets. Take a look.

deviceguru.com: I’ve long been a sucker for small-footprint Linux distributions. So naturally, I thought it would be interesting to explore the latest version of “Ubuntulite.”
arstechnica.com: Though sales of the Nintendo DS and the PlayStation Portable are strong, there are many who use the devices exclusively for homebrew applications. While some of these homebrew devices or homebrew-enabling schemes are looked upon less than favorably by the big manufacturers, there are some companies who see the value in releasing devices capable of homebrew software. Enter the Wiz.
compiz-fusion.org/~cyberorg: Here is an idea, build OLPC XO’s Sugar interface for openSUSE this hackweek. As sugar is designed specifically for children, getting that interface to openSUSE would enable administrators in developing countries to run Sugar on normal desktops.
feelwindows.blogspot: Linux has been there as an operating system for a long time and even though it's free, it has not been able to take a sizeable market share out of the Windows operating system. I tried to find out what are the main reasons behind this.
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: Want to know a dirty little secret? We, Linux and open-source users, love Apple's devices. Of course, that's not true of all of us. I'm sure Richard M. Stallman wouldn't be caught dead with an iPhone in his pocket.
