desktoplinux.com: For my money, the best desktop operating system is Linux -- MEPIS and OpenSUSE at the top with Ubuntu closing in fast, to be exact. But everyone has their own opinion, and over at PC Magazine some old friends and coworkers of mine decided to compare all the most popular desktop operating systems: Windows XP and Vista, Mac OS X 10.5.1 (Leopard), and Ubuntu 7.10.
makeuseof.com: Lately, Linux has been receiving quite a bit of notice. Between the ASUS EeePC, the One Laptop Per Child project, Dell’s new Ubuntu line, Intel’s Classmate PC, and Everex’s Green PC, Linux has been getting a lot of attention from computer manufacturers. It seems every new computer in the last year has had Linux, but to most people that doesn’t mean anything. It probably leaves you wondering, “what’s this Linux thing everyone’s talking about?”
eweek.com: CEO Jonathan Schwartz shows patience and eloquence in explaining how a company can make lots of money by giving away IP.
junauza.blogspot.com: Priests and Nuns are into Linux and Open Source; that is what Fr. Stephen Cuyos said to me. “I’m sure you would be more surprised to know that I am not the only priest who is into Linux. There are many."
Adrian Kingsley-Hughes: My blogging colleague Dana Blankenhorn reports that ThinkgOS founder David Lui isn’t worried by the Wal-Mart snub. He should be.
linux.com: Services like Flickr and Picasa seems like an obvious way to share your photos with the world. But if you are the do-it-yourself type and prefer to share your photos from the convenience of your own server, give Pixelpost a try.
blog.pavlov.net: As the web and web browsers have matured, people have started expecting different things out of them. Web usage patterns have changed, so too have our strategies on how to effectively make use of system resources such as memory.
Matthew Aslett: In his recent Forbes article Cash Me Out, Dan Lyons likens the assimilation of open source into the mainstream IT industry to the incorporation of gay culture into mainstream culture.
tectonic.co.za: Here’s something useful to pass the idle hours with while you wait for your next particulary large download to complete: UbuntuStats. The UbuntuStats site tracks Ubuntu development in real time.
opensuse.org: Issue 13 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. In this week’s issue:
Announcing the Official openSUSE Forums, Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 Packages, and Creating a DVD from YouTube videos.
computerworld.com: Taipei-based Asustek Computer Inc. proved that less can be more with its 2-lb., $400 Eee PC. Since then, other subnotebooks have followed in the Eee's wake. However, only the Everex CloudBook has dared to take the Eee head-on, matching its weight, screen and keyboard size, as well as its reliance on the Linux operating system, open-source applications and a $400 price tag.
kdubois.net: I just needed to express how impressed I just found myself with how well the linux kernel was working this morning. I was on my AMD X2 3800 processor and was simultaneously listening to some tunes on rhythmbox, watching an XVid movie, and browsing the web while emerging on both cores without any noticeable slowdowns in any the realtime activities I was doing!
blogs.the451group: The SFLC has settled yet another GPL lawsuit, this time agreeing to dismiss its case against High-Gain Antennas. Similar to prior agreements to comply, the latest GPL settlement comes with some key requirements for the defendant, which was sued for distributing GPL’d BusyBox code in its wireless connectivity devices without properly sharing source code.
blogs.ittoolbox: One of the most common uses I use scripting for is parsing log files. You know, those incredibly verbose files that we should read to find out if we have been h4x0r3d or not. Unfortunately there is a lot of information in those logs that we are not interested in at the time. So we write scripts to filter out the required information.
Paul Murphy: The most basic, and traditional, Wintel vs Lintel TCO comparison argued that since the hardware is the same, everything comes down to the cost of the OS and applications licenses -all of which are free for Lintel and expensive for Wintel.
itwire.com: It's taken a remarkably short time for the One Laptop Per Child project to change from positioning itself as the saviour of children in developing countries to becoming a toady for Microsoft.

jonreagan.wordpress: Here's another biased review, this time coming from PC Magazine. The article is a comparison of Mac OS 10.5, Vista, XP, and Ubuntu. Of the four systems, Ubuntu got the lowest score. See where I am going with this?
cnet.com: Doesn't that headline state the obvious? Doesn't the entire world know that Linux simply doesn't offer the kind of mass-market appeal Windows and Mac OS X do? I guess not.
