linuxhaxor.net: Over the years I came across many many linux Desktop screenshots, it’s amazing how someone can spend huge amount of time tweaking and customizing their desktop look. Here are some I really liked.

dag.wieers.com/blog: Let me play devil's advocate here. Mark Shuttleworth's recent pledge to join a synchronised release plan for Enterprise Linux distributions is no more than a wish to benefit from a lot of work that Novell and Red Hat are already doing in the Enterprise space.
beranger.org: It might sound very bizarre, knowing that I was using Rawhide quite some time before F9 was released. However... I am not impressed by the way Fedora 9 is becoming "yet another Ubuntu."
mindstab.net: So my folks Windows XP box started having difficulty booting. Most of the time it would go to boot and suddenly you'd be back at the BIOS. So I burned a copy of Hardy Heron, the newest Version of Ubuntu, released just last month. It loaded up and recognized all the hardware and installed, no trouble.
dthomasdigital.wordpress: What is that I say, a win for Linux? I think was handled much better than any Microsoft vulnerability ever has. Notifications were sent from multiple sources. If it was a Debian based distribution it was made perfectly clear you needed to install the security updates.
ostatic.com: I've been using all the previous beta versions, and while I'm still frustrated that I can't use my extensions with RC1, the rendering speed is so much faster than previous versions that I'm ready to use it as my main browser most of the time. It is still pre-release software, but the speed and several of the new features are truly welcome.
softvision.wordpress: Arch has taught me so much and I will go back to it one day. For now, I plan to decide between three popular KDE distros - openSUSE, Kubuntu and Fedora. The desktop environment of choice? KDE 4.0.
sjvn: I've loved Firefox since version 0.93. It was so much better than Internet Explorer and the other alternatives that I couldn't imagine using anything else. But, then Firefox's memory leaks went from annoying me to ticking me off. Now, Firefox 3 release candidate 1 was released early. Based on my quick look at it, I may end up sticking with Firefox after all.
business-standard.com: The price of software increases every year, the total value of software piracy as calculated by it is bound to increase even if there's a dip in piracy rates. There's now an open-source alternative for almost every major software need, ranging from databases and office suites to business applications.

firstscience.com: United Nations University-MERIT experts yesterday in Geneva urged parliamentarians to support open source software and information technologies as a way to let citizens participate meaningfully in the information society.
linux.com: Quite a few reviews of new Linux releases these days try to determine if a distribution is "ready for the desktop." I myself have probably been guilty of using that phrase, but I think it's time we officially retire this criterion.
junauza.com: People just can't get enough of Tux, the world-renowned penguin mascot of Linux. I decided to give Tux lovers another treat by handing out my list of twenty coolest, funniest, and maybe cutest Tux wallpapers. So without any more delay, here they are:
freesoftwaremagazine.com: In Chapter 1, I gave a brief overview of the Autotools and some of the resources that are currently available to help reduce the learning curve. In this chapter, we’re going to step back a little and examine project organization techniques that are applicable to all projects, not just those whose build system is managed by the Autotools.
osweekly.com: As you might remember from my previous piece on gOS, some people have felt like the current gOS offering provided on Everex machines were simply not good enough for casual use. In this piece, I take it even further, with a full review on gOS' overall usability.
mozillalinks.org: A year and a half after the last major Firefox release, Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 is here with a very long list of new features and improvements.

50webs.org: The comparison includes the major five Linux browsers: Konqueror, Firefox, Opera, Epiphany and Galeon. I'm aware of others like Dillo or the older Mozilla, but decided to include only the big players at the moment.
