aplawrence.com: "... they were afraid to run fsck for several months". That little sentence fragment was part of a support email I received this week. I've heard similar things in the past. The fear is that fsck will "make things worse".
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Recently, Gene over at ERACC WEblog Makes an effort to define the 'free' in "Free & Open Source Software". This don't go quite far enough.
informationweek.com/blog: Yesterday I sat down on the phone with Larry Wake -- official title: Group Manager, Solaris Strategic Marketing -- to chat about OpenSolaris. I ended up with an answer to an unexpected question:
geek.com: Open source is headed our way in force. That’s the message coming out of every major manufacturing company today. No longer are companies willing to pay the price by catering to Microsoft and its proprietary architectures and related policies and procedures.
v00d00.net: Many fully fledged distros have drawn praise for bringing something new to the linux arena, while relying on the solid foundation of a mother distro. There has been much comment in the community about these new distros taking the mother distros work, adding to it and pushing out releases without passing those additions back to the mother distro.
h-online.com: Almost two years after its initial announcement, the Linux Solution Group (LiSoG) has now presented specificationsPDF for its OSDtBench (Open Source based Desktop Benchmark) desktop benchmark suite and demonstrated a prototype at LinuxTag 2009 in Berlin.
berkeleylug.com: Even Mark Shuttleworth is willing to admit that OSX has a pretty nice usable interface that is a good goal for desktop Linux to beat in the coming year or so. Even if you don’t want to replicate the mac, you might still be interested in replacing one of the two Gnome taskbars with a dock.
maximumpc.com: The days of ugly Linux desktops are a thing of the past. Modern distros include many tools and options that enable them to look good and be more useful.
eweek.com: Ubuntu is the leader in the Linux environment and it's slowly making its way into the mainstream. But is it ready to tackle the enterprise?
toolbox.com/blogs: There were a few areas where desktop Linux needs some improvement. I may have been lucky as a lot of these problems I have not personally experienced, some of them I have and some of them I remember from years back but are no longer relevant.
bmc.com: The reason I was personally looking at Fedora 11 is that I wanted to see what the very latest MAPI setup in Linux looked like. Fedora is not only the most recent release of the major distros: Fedora also prides itself on being the most bleeding edge of the Distros.
tuxradar.com: Free software is often developed with the mantra 'release early, release often'. This is a great idea, because new tools can be tested, trialled and critiqued as they're developed, rather than waiting for some arbitrary point of readiness. Which brings us to KOffice 2.0.

If you’re using Linux you may have already read TuxArena’s excellent rundown of three highly regarded screencasting apps. But what if you’re using a netbook like an Eee PC?
happyvenus.net: I’ve been fighting with the want to use Ubuntu for like three years now. Not just use Ubuntu, but make it my primary OS of choice.
computerworlduk.com: IT security firm Kaspersky Lab has released the beta version of its antivirus software for Linux file systems.
blog.eracc.com: I have been pondering the meaning of “free” in association with Free Open Source Software (FOSS) in general and GNU/Linux in particular. If one asks a FOSS advocate what free means in regard to these one might hear the reply, “Free as in beer!” and/or “Free as in freedom!”.
ghacks.net: If you are learning about the stars in school, an amateur sky watcher, or a meteorologist in the making you need to know your stars. To really see the stars you can visit a real planetarium, you can break out your serious telescope, or you can install and fire up a desktop application like Stellarium.
linuxfoundation.org: Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier is a stable fixture in the Linux community, spreading the word about Linux and open source to all who will listen. I recently talked to Zonker to find out what topics he plans to cover in his address at our first LinuxCon event on September 21-23.
