openlogic.com/blogs: Glyn Moody wrote an interesting article for the Guardian earlier this month titled “Why falling Flash prices threaten Microsoft.” It got me thinking about commoditization; specifically pondering the question: Is Linux driving the O/S towards commoditization as many would have us believe?
foogazi.com: I’ve always wondered why there has yet to be a Linux distribution that has ventured into a big time marketing campaign for its Linux product. With Mac OSX stealing a lot of Microsoft’s market share due to a great marketing campaign with the “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” television commercials, why have we yet to see any Linux commercials? Are Linux Users Too Cheap?
eweek.com: Novell used its BrainShare 2008 conference here to start talking publicly about its development plans for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, the next version of its server operating system.
linuxondesktop.blogspog: Continuing my previous article about cool applications that you can install on your Ubuntu Desktop , in this article we cover some really cool games and emulators that you can install on your Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon Desktop.
arstechnica.com: When I wrote about file managers in my review of KDE 4.0, I noted that several important features had been removed from Konqueror, including the tree-based detailed view. Developer Peter Penz reports that the tree view has been restored and that it will be fully functional in time for the KDE 4.1 release.
desktoplinux.com: Ubuntu has announced that Ubuntu 8.04 is now in beta freeze. What this means is that no new package changes are going to be allowed in the well-regarded Linux distribution. The only exceptions will be for bug fixes for already known problems.
blog.wired.com: Linux guru Hans Reiser, on the witness stand here for the fourth day Monday, denied again that he killed his missing wife. The defendant claimed his 31-year-old wife, whom he married in 1999, abandoned her children because she embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from his Oakland-based Namesys company.
And: Hans Reiser Explaining Coincidences; Jury Seems Unmoved
linuxjournal.com: Looking at the software listed at Kokkini Zita it's easy to see where developer Fons Adriaensen's interests lie. He has written one of the best organ synthesizers for Linux, he has contributed to the LADSPA collection of processing plugins, and he has provided Linux sound researchers with some excellent tools for measuring and representing audio signals. He is also involved in improving Linux support for the Ambisonics technology of encoding and decoding multichannel audio.
linux.com: Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth spent about $20 million to go into space, and he never got farther away from Earth than a few hundred miles. Using three free software programs, you can look at and virtually travel to places millions of miles away without leaving your GNU/Linux desktop or paying a dime.
Gaël Duval: Automatic synchronization of documents with the Ulteo Online Desktop, automatic upgrading, new “My Digital life” panel, installation in about 3 minutes, hundreds applications available… That’s what you’ll find in this just-released installable version of Ulteo Application System.
linux.com: As you might expect, GNOME 2.22, the latest version of the popular desktop, which was released last week, has some functional tweaks and new default applications. Few of these changes are dramatic, but the overall impression is of dozens of small enhancements that nudge GNOME toward greater usability.
informationweek: Two software developers have reached a settlement in a lawsuit against Verizon Communications in which they claimed the telecom giant's broadband service violated the terms of the widely used open source agreement under which their product was licensed.
Also: Verizon GPL settlement is a biggie

linux.com: Today is St. Patrick's Day, a national holiday in Ireland that's celebrated by people of Irish lineage worldwide. Like Ireland itself, the holiday is associated with the color green -- as are many things in the Linux universe.
Glyn Moody: One of the problems with open source is that much of it happens invisibly. Whereas proprietary software, which is sold, has to publicised at some point, open source can simply be written: whether or not it gets used is a question of the author's personal inclinations.
tectonic.co.za: Most users know about proprietary software packages such as Norton Ghost that can be used for cloning hard disks for backup or distribution purposes. And a few may know about Partition Image, an open source alternative for saving partition images. But how many users know about Clonezilla, an all-in-one cloning tool that promises both speed and power?
