computerworlduk.com: Netbooks fill an important niche in the consumer PC market, but the way they are being marketed is causing confusion with consumers, says a Forrester analyst.
daniweb.com: In a recent report by ComputerWorld, Unix is losing major ground in the SAP data center space. And in the time period (roughly 2.5 years) between October 2005 through March 2008, Unix to Linux conversions almost doubled over the previous evaluation period (2001 - September 2005).
Issue #55 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out! In this week’s issue: openSUSE Project Opens Feature Tracking with openFATE, openSUSE forums has reached 20K members, and Wanted-Build Service Contributors.
unfq.com: I have been using Ubuntu Linux as my main operating system for the past three years. That began to change a few months ago and a couple of weeks ago, I finally made the switch over to Windows Vista. So why did I drop Ubuntu Linux?
techworld.com.au: The Ubuntu Mobile operating system is undergoing its most radical change with a port to the ARM processor for Internet devices and netbooks, and may use Nokia's LGPL Qt development environment as an alternative to GNOME.
A list of the best 8 Ubuntu video editors (install instructions for Ubuntu, they work on any linux distro). Best Ubuntu video editors full article
blogs.computerworld: From where I sit, a new Linux user needs a Linux that's close enough to the desktop they already know-almost always Windows-so they can quickly start using it. The easiest way to start is to buy a PC that already has Linux installed on it.
jehurst.wordpress: I use Linux. It’s the best there is, particularly for the way I work. What I know is the folks behind Linux are quite elitist in at least one sense of the word: They are only interested in dealing with their own kind, and have no interest in what most computer users want.
news.cnet.com: Back in 2002, Jim Allchin was co-president of Microsoft's Platforms and Services Division and was, in his own words, "scared" of the momentum behind Linux, as noted in an email [PDF] sent to several of his direct reports.
linuxhaxor.net: What’s with all the talks about windows 7 being a Linux Killer? A long time Linux user has very little to no reason to “switch” to Windows from Linux.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: I have a number of concerns about a recent article about games [as] the key top Linux adoption. It nearly screams for scrutiny, as a it presents opinions and broad stereotypes as fact, contradicts itself and makes conclusions that have the capacity to hurt, not help the community.
headshotgamer.com: I've previously reviewed Fedora 10 Beta and I liked what I saw, though was a bit jaded by the difficulties in setting up proprietary drivers.
