ibeentoubuntu.com: Although I don't use Ubuntu anymore, I still try to keep up with the news on it, and I'v tested the upcoming Intrepid a couple of times recently. There have been some interesting developmetns which I'd like to let you know about.
Also: Test driving the new Ubuntu 8.10
celettu.wordpress: I am looking forward to the upcoming releases of some distributions, some of them old favourites, some of them I’ve never installed before.
tmxxine.com: Mini-sys is a Puppy Linux fork, designed for stable, commercial use. It includes many enhancements for the home and professional user. 'Muppy' is the code name for Minisys-Linux.∞
phoronix.com: Mesa 7.2 has just under a dozen official fixes and it also adds 3D acceleration support for the new lower-end Intel G41 Chipset. The Mesa 7.1 release had support for the original DRI2.
junauza.com: In celebration of Software Freedom Day 2008, I would like to share to you all some of my favorite quotes about Free and Open Source Software from no less than the two pillars of FOSS, Linus Torvalds and Richard M. Stallman.

headshotgamer.com: For those that haven't using an Ubuntu (and family) Alternate CD, it's a simplistic way to install the distribution to your PC and allows you to setup some extra niceities like Linux Software RAID as well as speeding up the whole process of installing (off the top of my head, by about a quarter).
techradar.com: There's no doubt that Linux is a secure operating system. However, nothing is perfect. Millions of lines of code are churned through the kernel every second and it only takes a single programming mistake to open a door into the operating system. If that line of code happens to face the Internet, that's a backdoor to your server.
members.whattheythink: Today is Software Freedom Day worldwide, and I thought I'd support the effort by noting my favorite products. I use computers in Linux and Windows. Many of the programs are also available for Macintosh.
blogs.zdnet.com: Matt Asay thinks it funny that Canada’s Green Party has made open source a part of its election manifesto. Given that it is one of the country’s smaller parties, attracting less than 10 percent of the vote, he questions its utility.
linux.com: Thin clients reduce hardware costs, offer added security by stripping away storage options, and ease management tasks by storing all configurations on a centralized server. openThinClient is an open source thin client server that is absolutely free.
phoronix.com: With the most recent Catalyst 8.9 Linux driver release there is support for MultiView on FireGL and FirePRO graphics cards. This allows the user to use multiple graphics cards together in order to build a single X server that spans all of these displays.
techradar.com: Haiku is a free operating system and an alternative to Linux. It celebrated its seventh birthday on 18 August, and it's still being actively developed. Haiku is nowhere near being considered a finished product, but it's now stable enough for everyday use. Most importantly, it's very interesting.
opensource.org: Transparency is key in enabling people to participate in the creation of wealth and well-being in society. In the past decade, free and open source software (FOSS) has become one of the major catalysts in increasing transparency by lowering the barrier to access the best software technologies. Software Freedom Day (SFD) celebrates this important role of FOSS in making this change happen globally.

dot.kde.org: The KDE community is pleased to announce UserBase. UserBase is the new end-user wiki for KDE and complements TechBase, the wiki aimed at developers. It will contain tips and tricks, links to where to get more help, as well as an application catalogue giving an overview of the different kinds of programs that KDE offers.
lilserenity.wordpress: Prior to OpenSUSE 11, I was still using Ubuntu 7.10 (and I would have preferred to stay on 7.04 to some respect) with the Gnome desktop environment. I had upgraded OpenOffice.org to 2.3, and Firefox 3.0 by the end.
blogs.the451group.com: This week’s Linux Plumbers Conference in Portland was a great opportunity for many of the Linux kernel community people to get together, challenge one another, hash out some differences and hone their similarities and synergies. What strikes me as perhaps most interesting is that while there was some discord felt throughout the event among the different Linux camps, this conglomerate of developers representing a range of different vendors in a variety of different ways all do one thing common to all of them: push the kernel forward.
linux-foundation.org/weblogs/amanda: On Wednesday kernel developer and Novell fellow Greg KH opened the first annual Linux Plumbers Conference with a keynote aimed squarely at the team behind Ubuntu, Canonical. I think Greg could have used the opportunity to inspire more than attack, but Greg obviously feels strongly about the necessity for upstream development. It’s also Greg being Greg: I believe he carries around a spoon just in case he encounters a hornets’ nest.
