ppenz.blogspot: The deadline for adding features to KDE 4.1 is April the 20th. This means that the feature set for Dolphin is fixed now:
blog.internetnews.com: First the good news. Fedora 9 Preview is now out -- woohoo! The bad news? Well since Fedora 9 Preview is out a little late, Red Hat has now pushed back the official release date of Fedora 9 by two weeks.
Also: Switching to Linux which distro to use, Fedora?
And: Number 9, number 9. Fedora 9 Preview has been cleared for takeoff!
limulus.wordpress: Basically, Novell and Red Hat won’t be trying to get consumer desktop market share, focusing instead only on the ‘enterprise’ desktop market; Fedora and openSUSE thus appear to be relegated to ‘hobbyist OS’ level. Ubuntu is now THE distro of choice for home use, with no major competitors, but I think we’ve known that for some time.
liquidat.wordpress: The new Laptop is almost fully supported under Linux. While the install process wasn’t really easy, the hardware was afterwards detected without a problem. The new laptop works like a charm. After few days I am already sure that my money was well spent. The hardware is almost fully supported, and everything I tested works like expected.
osweekly.com: Most people these days think of Everex as the company that’s looking to bring Linux-powered desktop PCs with their own brand of Linux to the masses. But did you know that in many ways, they are in a position to do what Dell should have done from day one into the Ubuntu deal?
linuxworld.com: For an executive who had just had his company bought for a cool billion a few months ago and was on the eve of announcing a major update to his business' flagship database program, former MySQL CEO Marten Mickos, now Sun Microsystems' senior vice president for databases, didn't look comfortable.
Also: The State of MySQL
lucas-nussbaum.net/blog: I am very happy that 19 contributors who were waiting for their accounts, sometimes for a very long time, became Debian Developers today. This is great news for them, and for the project as a whole.
computerworlduk.com/blogs: Some people get sniffy about OpenOffice.org, calling it mickey mouse in comparison to the “serious” and “grown-up” Microsoft Office. That may have been a vaguely plausible jibe for version 1, but I've found version 2 to be incredibly fast and powerful – it really does everything I need in an office suite, and it does it well. And yet OpenOffice.org rarely gets the respect it deserves.

zdnet.com.au: Early results in a study that aims to track open source installations in business has seen Ubuntu and Firefox race to the top of the charts.
Paula Rooney: The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has not received a formal appeal of its approval of Office Open XML as a standard, but it looks more unlikely with each day that passes.
dot.kde.org: Despite their prominent position in the world as leaders of technology, we hear from oriental countries quite rarely in the free software world. To find out what happens to KDE in the East, we asked some questions to Daisuke Kameda (亀田 大輔) of the KDE Japan Users Group.
A British Columbia-based startup called InkMedia announced an under-$300 notebook that runs embedded Linux. Based on a Freescale i.MX31 processor, the Ink Mobile Computer (Ink MC) depends entirely on flash-based storage and offers an 8.6-inch SVGA display, four USB slots, Ethernet, and WiFi.
linuxjournal.com: In my next three articles I'll profile three native Linux software synthesizers (a.k.a. softsynths). I'll introduce their basic synthesis architectures and program operations, then I'll guide my readers briefly through the process of creating a new sound for each synth profiled. Our voyage begins with Nick Dowell's Analogue Modeling SYNTHesizer, better known as amSynth.

Tristan Rhodes: Red Hat has recently announced that they have "No plans for a traditional consumer desktop". Let me explain why I think Red Hat needs to change their business strategy.
