linuxworld.com: Dropping profits and stock prices have analysts speculating that Sun could be a target for either acquisition or a restructuring in which the company would sell off parts of the business and focus on a smaller set of technologies.
kmandla.wordpress: I’ve been thinking myself quite clever these past few months, creating Crux systems that boot in 14 seconds, or extremely lightweight arrangements with very sparse, but very fast, custom-tuned software. And then, along comes Slitaz, and makes me feel silly.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: Many people know the mantra - if you are a gamer or office worker, you use the OS from Redmond. If you are a creative person such as a musician, video editor, etc you use a Mac. Geeks use Linux. This month, in Linux Format Magazine, 64 Studio was bundled on the disc.
phoronix.com: Tuesday the NVIDIA 177.67 Display Driver was released. Due to fallout from the 177.67 driver, NVIDIA has replaced it just two days later with the 177.68 Beta.
alltux.blogspot: Tin Hat is a Linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo which aims to provide a very secure, stable and fast Desktop environment that lives purely in RAM. Tin Hat boots from CD, or optionally a pen drive, but it is not a LiveCD.
thevarguy.com: Microsoft is sending another $100 million toward Novell as part of an ongoing Windows-SUSE Linux relationship. Here are five things Novell should do with that dough.
codewords.wordpress: I am curious by nature, and I’m always looking to see whether there’s something better over the horizon. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron the day after it was released, and I was impressed. But I knew there were other fine Linux distros out there, but I invariably return to Ubuntu Hardy Heron. Why?
gimp.org: GIMP 2.4.7 is a bug-fix release in the stable 2.4 series. Some fixes include: fixed issue in GIF load plug-in, fixed crash with Python 2.5 on 64 bit systems, and plugged a memory leak.

computerworld.com: Mozilla Corp. today announced the winners of its third "Extend Firefox" contest, an annual competition that recognizes the year's best Firefox add-ons.
techiemoe.com: I discovered GoboLinux through an article that talked about its unique file system. Rarely do I run across a distribution that does something completely original, so naturally I was intrigued.
junauza.com: I'm planning to acquire a small, ultra-lightweight, low-cost, and Linux-powered subnotebook before the end of the year. So, I began doing some research (used Google), and started my quest to find the perfect netbook.
linuxplanet.com: openSUSE 11.0 is based on the Linux kernel version 2.6.25 and provides a cornucopia of features. If you choose to download the full DVD, you can expect a whopping 4.5 GBs for the iso-format file. Other options include a Live CD and over the network.
internetnews.com: Standing at the headwaters of the ecosystem that is Linux is the Linux Foundation and its executive director Jim Zemlin. The Linux Foundation was forged out of the merger of the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) and the Free Standards Group in 2007 as a new group with a new mandate for Linux.
computingtech.blogspot: The real measure of a Linux user expertise comes from your abilities at the shell. In our modern age, the GUI is mistakenly considered “progress.” Most modern Linux distributions prefer you to use the GUI to do nearly everything. However, it’s well worth developing at least some command-line shell skills, for a number of reasons:
phoronix.com: Generating buzz this morning with the release of the Linux 2.6.27-rc4 kernel is word that Ubuntu may switch to the Linux 2.6.27 kernel for their forthcoming 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" release.
opensource.org: Microsoft's silence on the topic of what they can do for Open Source has now been shattered by the news that they will follow none of the suggestions by any of the leaders in the open source community. Rather, they will spend another $100M on software they have no intention of ever actually using.
blog.linuxtoday: More hardware manufacturers than ever support Linux in some way- they supply binary drivers, or support and sponsor FOSS drivers. Even better, some actually admit it publicly. Though some still act like you want to peek up their skirts when you ask about Linux.
linuxshellaccount.blogspot: The script (which is available for free) is called cfg2html and, from my experience so far, I must say it does a fantastic job of reporting what's reportable and making for a very easy-to-read html server analysis (even if I do have to page-down 50 times to look at absolutely everything it reports on).
linux.com: If you've ever worked with and manipulated MySQL databases, chances are you've used phpMyAdmin to manage your databases from a Web interface. But phpMyAdmin can be a little complex; if you want a lightweight alternative, try phpMinAdmin.
