linuxjournal.com: As a computer journalist for the last 25 years, I've received a lot of review copies of software. As something of an obsessive magpie, I've tended to keep most of it. Until yesterday, that is, when I finally threw out all those copies. What's makes this little spring-cleaning exercise particularly apt as well as cathartic is that all of us - and not just me - may finally be witnessing the end of the Windows era.

geeknewscentral.com: I read an article earlier this week saying that Linux sees a Windows Free world. Well if that's true, I would have to wonder what people would go to, because Linux is not it. At least, not now.
beranger.org: Since everybody seems be be anxious to comment an article from Information Week: What Linux Will Look Like In 2012, here's my take on how a typical, über-productive Linux desktop will look like in 2012:
- Aria2 - high speed command line download utility in Debian

jonreagan.wordpress: It had been decided to create a new theme after each Long Term Support release, meaning that starting with Ubuntu 8.10, a new theme will be released, and there will be no new theme until after the next LTS release in 2010. During that period of time, the theme is fixed to be more appealing and complete.
itwire.com: Linus Torvalds is a Finnish born software engineer best known for two things: kick starting the development of the Linux kernel, and owning the Linux trademark. Actually, make that three things. Torvalds has recently become very well known for speaking his mind...
itwire.com: Ten years from now, if Linux has managed to gain something like 10 per cent or more of the desktop market and continues to maintain its lead in the server market, one person would have to take a goodly share of the credit - Mark Shuttleworth.
kerneltrap.org: "It is about time to take a step back and describe what I have been implementing," began Daniel Phillips, referring to his new Tux3 filesystem. He provided a simple ASCII diagram that detailed the filesystem's hierarchical structure, describing each of the elements.
zerias.blogspot: One of the big announcements at this years SIGGRAPH was the release of the OpenGL 3.0 specification.

linuxworld.com: Should Linux include a virus scanning layer? Kernel developers debate the best way to protect virus-vulnerable OSs from malware stored on a Linux server.
amarok.kde.org/blog: Yesterday we released Amarok 1.4.10, an unanticipated security release. From the Release Anouncement you may notice that we gave thanks to Google Alerts for notifying us of this vulnerability. This was perfectly accurate.
Matt Asay: I've been very fortunate to get to spend some time with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu, during my trip to Argentina. One question we discussed at length: what is Mark's ambition for Ubuntu?
hardware.no: Previously, we've interviewed the lead-developers of Arch and Gobo Linux. Two distributions for the more advanced users out there. This time, we're going in the complete opposite direction to understand more about a user friendly Linux-distribution: Ubuntu.
teamteabag.com: I’m always willing to try something new and exciting in the world of Linux, and I couldn’t let gOS Gadgets pass me by.

deviceguru.com: Lenny (aka “testing”) appears poised to displace Etch as the popular Linux distribution’s “stable” branch next month. To see how Lenny was coming along, I loaded the latest preview (beta 2) of its KDE system image onto an available Thinkpad, and took it for a spin.
