channelinsider.com: Late last month, Ubuntu 8.04 arrived on the scene, right on time, right on its six-month refresh cycle and readily available via a simple ISO image file download. While that may have been big news for the Linux community, the question remains, what if any impact will this latest release have on mainstream computer users?
saleem-khan.blogspot: I am PCLinuxOS KDE fan, I like slim and customized installation and desktop. Openbox is a small and configurable windows manager. TinyMe has adopted this small and fast windows manager.
hertenberger.co.za: My usual euphoria at running Linux on any machine I can lay my hands on has been radically diminished. As geeks and fanboys, we are constantly thriving to run the latest and greatest. If a new distribution is made available, we can’t wait to download the ISO, burn it to a disc and install. Primarily, my disappointment is directed at the release of new kernels.
gamasutra.com: With the release of Windows Vista, which has had some much-publicized issues (whether press-exaggerated or not) of late, we wondered whether it might be ushering in more of of a Linux renaissance. That’s why we thought now might be a good time to have a chat with Bob Zimbinksi, who has run the Linux Gaming Tome for around nine years now.
linuxjournal.com: apt-get, up2date, yum, pkgtool, dpkg, rpm -- we have lots of ways to avoid compiling programs. For the most part, I don't think that it's because we don't like to compile programs, but rather because most of the modern package management tools take care of dependancies, versioning, etc.
Matt Asay: A friend called me on Friday to ask what I thought about Novell. "Does it have a chance?" he asked? The answer is increasingly, "Yes."
itwire.com: Why would anyone try to introduce an operating system into the existing glut unless it pays off in spades? What can a new entrant give us that the multitude of Linux distributions, the Mac OSX and old, hoary Windows hasn't?
linux.com: Recently, I wrote a review of the note-taking application Tomboy. Though I find Tomboy exceptionally useful, I had a minor issue with the inability to create new notebooks from within a note. Within hours of the review appearing on Linux.com, Boyd Timothy, one of the app's developers mentioned in the article's comments that my idea had merit and said he would add the feature to an upcoming build. True to his word, he did.
web4everyone.blogspot: I got the idea the other day that it would be great to sit in my recliner and check my email via my laptop. The only problem was, well, I didn't really have a laptop. Hmmm; or did I? I did have an old IBM Thinkpad 600 with a Pentium II processor.
blogs.techrepublic.com: So a few friends of mine have all suffered from the Windows XP SP3 update plague that has rendered some machine in need of a complete re-install and some machines just acting as if they have been infected by some form of PC-west-nile. So instead of making fun of them for once again getting pimp-slapped by Microsoft, I thought I would try to suffer their same pain by updating my primary machine (currently running Ubuntu 7.10) to Hardy Herron 8.04.
dot.kde.org: With the release of 4.1 on the horizon, and initiatives such as Krush days, recent call for help with documentation, and the perennial need for localisation it is very useful for end users to be able to easily get their hands on up-to-date builds of KDE4, preferably without having to wait for their chosen distro to provide packages. As was the case with the run up to KDE4.0, KDE4Daily VM aims to provide such a service.

watchingthenet.com: One thing that frustrated me the most with Firefox 2 was trying to view security information for individual sites.
ostatic.com: Space agencies were some of the first places you could find open source software "in the wild". Being natural early adopters, cash-strapped and very inquisitive they naturally took to the concept.
phoronix.com: Earlier this month we announced that AMD would soon be releasing their Stream SDK for Linux, and just before the start of the weekend this inaugural release had occurred. The Linux release of the AMD Stream SDK v1.1 Beta brings both CAL and Brook+ for those using ATI/AMD graphics hardware. This v1.1 Beta release is also in tune with the new beta release for Microsoft Windows XP.
