opensuse.org: The 1.0 release provides all the features necessary to support building openSUSE in the public build systems and allowing direct contributions to openSUSE from all contributors. The openSUSE Build Service allows developers to create and maintain packages for openSUSE and many other Linux distributions, including CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Red Hat, and Ubuntu.
giannaros.org/blog: There are a lot of nice things in the upcoming 4.1, so I’ll just briefly mention a few of those visual ones which particularly interest me:
- A Simple Guide to Making the Perfect Recording in Audacity
- qGIS on Ubuntu Hardy
- Vim Editing Multiple Files and Windowing Support Under Linux / UNIX
- Fast, powerful Geany editor offers IDE features
- Using Traps Outside Of Shell Scripts On Unix Or Linux
- From noise to grain
softpedia.com: wattOS... the last frontier, the lightweight Ubuntu-based operating system is now here! Faster than anything else out there, wattOS is not just another Ubuntu clone, it is powered by the Openbox window manager, a standards compliant, fast, lightweight and extensible window manager.
groklaw.net: The processing of the ISO/IEC DIS 29500 project has been conducted in conformity with the ISO/IEC JTC 1 Directives, with decisions determined by the votes expressed by the relevant ISO and IEC national bodies under their own responsibility, and consequently, for the reasons mentioned above, the appeals should not be processed further.
phoronix.com: In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the mainline X server. While it's now in the mainline branch, Peter Hutterer, the chief developer of MPX, hasn't stopped there. One of his most recent accomplishments was modifying Compiz to support Multi-Point X.
smspillaz.wordpress: This edition we cover some of the more new plugins coming our way from both official and unofficial development trees. Highlights this week are: Cool stackswitch plugin by onestone, Eye-Candy wizard plugin, and Grid plugin for organising windows.
limulus.wordpress: What if OEMs were required to sell the software separately from the hardware, BUT still be allowed to preinstall? Oh wait, what’s that other stack of disks next to the Windows envelopes? Ubuntu Linux disks? They’re FREE? And if I don’t like it I can come back next week and still buy the OEM Windows disks?
itbusiness.ca: Many small and mid-sized businesses are seriously considering Linux as an alternative operating system (OS). The Linux vs. Microsoft issue is once more on their radar screen, partly due to less than stellar reviews garnered by Vista, its undistinguished sales, and the growing popularity of open source software.
cnet.com: A few days ago, Walter Mossberg, writing in the Wall Street Journal, offered a verbal peek at the Mac user interface intended as heads-up for Windows XP users thinking of switching. I'm not a Mac user, but from reading the article, it seems that the initial learning curve for switching from Windows XP to Linux, is less than that for switching to Macs. I offer the Linux side of the various user interface aspects that Mossberg raised and contrast it with Mac OS X Leopard.
computerworld.com: A few weeks ago, the OpenSUSE Project announced the release of OpenSUSE 11.0, the "community" edition of SUSE Linux, Novell's commercial Linux distribution. Like most recent distributions, OpenSUSE is made up of the usual suspects. Once up, OpenSUSE looks pretty much like any other GNOME/KDE-based Linux distro.
salon.com: Five days before the computer genius who killed his wife led police to her body, he was remorseless and angry in defense of his innocence. I showed up at the Santa Rita Jail during visiting hours to meet Hans Reiser and I knew if I was ever going to talk with him, I had to do it before he was transferred to state prison.

The business world and the rest of the world is a marketplace. So the next time someone tries to tell you that the Linux approach of presenting a large number of distributions isn't good for the business sense of Linux, they apparently haven't been to a marketplace in a long time.
vizzzion.org: While surfing around on Teh Intarwebs, I've read complaints from people that we're doing something radically new to the user. Some of those users seem to have problems with all that "radically new" stuff.
linuxjournal.com: The announcement by the GNOME Foundation that it is appointing Stormy Peters as its Executive Director confirms a suspicion that I've harboured for a while: that we are witnessing the evolution of major open source projects into new kinds of players in the computing world.
gregdek.livejournal: Did you know that the OLPC project is the largest single "customer" of Fedora in the entire world? Despite some unfortunate statements by the project's erstwhile CEO, the OLPC project is still *extremely* focused on succeeding in its noble goal -- the education of the world's children -- with the use of free software as the central component of their software strategy.
informationweek.com/blog: It seems like once every few months there's another round of muttering about whether or not the open source world is just too diverse for its own good. So, is more really too much, especially now that Linux is edging into the mainstream?
