linuxplanet.com: Plasma, ZUI, Oxygen, Dolphin, Okular, and Phonon are terms that seem more at home in a science experiment than in a Window Manager. But this is one science experiment that didn't go bad. You're going to love KDE 4.
fedoraproject.org: GNU/Linux systems have often come under attack for the difficulty involved with setting-up and configuring various wireless devices. Thanks to NetworkManager we now have a system that allows us to quickly and easily connect to different networks.

reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: FIRST I went “Wow!”, followed soon after by an “Eugh!” The “Wow!” came about as a result of watching SAM Linux 2008 'Claws rc1' launching as a live CD on my test machine.

news.com: Linus Torvalds, leader of the Linux kernel project that's among the best-known open-source threats to Windows, has words of praise for Microsoft's announcement last week that it would share some previously hard-to-get technology with open-source programmers.
raiden.net: If there's one thing to be said for Microsoft, it's a shrewd player. They've done in just a few years what takes some companies decades to do. They've cornered the desktop OS market. All of this success has caused some of their detractors to call them dishonest, unethical, and in some cases just downright evil.
techiemoe.com: It's rare these days for me to start up a Linux distribution and be surprised. Most major distributions all look fairly similar, use either KDE or Gnome (or XFce with a theme that resembles one of those), and offer essentially the same set of applications. Linpus, a Chinese distribution that I'd never heard of until a random post about it on a tech blog, is definitely different.
