jaysonrowe.wordpress: One thing that does irritate me is bickering between different camps in the Linux community. Each thinks that their distribution is the best, and should be used by every living, breathing and eating human being – ’nuff said. I really feel that this is a dangerous attitude, and I feel that this is an attitude that is going to continue to hurt Linux over all rather than help.
toolbox.com/blogs: Whenever I have conversations with people about windows and Linux they always ask me what is so good about Linux. They see something that looks pretty and gives them a wow factor but it is not enough. I can talk about Linux's superior multitasking and hardware support or security against virus's and spyware and I get the gazed donut look in pretty short order.

liquidat.wordpress: At the GNOME conference GUADEC plans were presented how the transition to the new Gtk and GNOME is supposed to happen. The basic idea is to make the transition as smooth as possible by first cleaning up everything and introducing new concepts later on.
cnet.com: For the most part, on this blog, I try to convince readers to do something defensive on their computers - like a parent nagging a child to eat their vegetables. Only once have I put my foot down, so to speak, saying unequivocally last year that all Windows XP users should employ DropMyRights. Now, another emphatic endorsement - all Windows users should have a Linux Live CD, and, know how to use it.
blogs.pcmag.com: Every year or so, there's a new Linux distro darling. Last year's was Ubuntu, and I've lost track of what this year's favorite penguin might be. But a lot of newcomers to Linux seem to get the impression that a new distro is better than an older package because there'll be more attention paid to new technologies and easier user interfaces. In fact, pretty much the opposite is true.
phoronix.com: It's been 234 days (or just shy of eight months) since Unreal Tournament 3 had shipped for the PC. Most would have thought the Linux client for this title from Epic Games would have arrived by now, but sadly it hasn't and there is no sign of when it will arrive.

The kernel has also been updated to 2.6.26rc7. Mandriva warns that this is a true alpha, likely to contain many bugs related to the new version of KDE.
linuxplanet.com: Last week we introduced ourselves to Sidux, the excellent Debian Sid implementation that makes Debian Sid a bit friendlier. Even though I thought I gave a number of reasons why a user might prefer Sidux to Debian Sid, or Ubuntu, or some other Debian derivative, they apparently were not clear to a number of readers.
zdnet.com.au: The Sydney Diocese of the Anglican Church has decided to cut the Microsoft umbilical cord by moving to open source, starting with Office which will be replaced in the next three years.
ubuntuproductivity.com: I am keenly interested in software that can help when studying the Bible. Coming from the Mac OS where there are no good Bible software offerings anything would be a blessing. So, for all you fellow Ubuntu-using Christians here is what I found.
blog.wired.com: In passing the FISA Amendments Act, US Congress gave the executive branch the power to order Google, AT&T and Yahoo to forward to the government all e-mails, phone calls and text messages where one party to the conversation is thought to be overseas.
sjvn: Recently, my colleague James Turner reviewed openSUSE 11 and he liked it. It's hard to tell from some of the notes he got back-shame on you people!--but he really did. I, on the other hand, love openSUSE 11.
opensuse.org: Issue #30 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. In this week’s issue: openSUSE Build Service 1.0 Released, Announcing openSUSE Day at LinuxWorld Expo, and People of openSUSE: Joe Brockmeier.
linux.com: Who knew that the biggest desktop Linux show of 2008 would turn out to be the June Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan, where the next generation of Linux desktop hardware was put on display? In fact, Linux was at the heart of no fewer than four different ultra mobile PCs (UMPC).
