linuxworld.com: The last couple of years have seen a renewed push within the kernel community to avoid regressions. When a patch is found to have broken something that used to work, a fix must be merged or the offending patch will be removed from the kernel. It's a straightforward and logical idea, but there's one little problem.

sfgate.com (AP): The defense attorney for a software programmer accused of killing his estranged wife told jurors Monday the prosecution hasn't proved the woman is dead, let alone murdered.
polishlinux.org: Around three years ago, when I began my adventure with ‘the penguin’, I had been looking for an application to catalog CDs. They were either ugly, or limited in functionality. This time, I didn’t think of giving up. In the repo I found mainly the old and abandoned (for nearly four years) GTKtalog, CdCat, Kat and Katalog and a program which made me stop for a moment - GWhere.

amateurscientist18.blogspot: Its almost an year that I had my first date with PCLinuxOS. I was pretty comfortable with it from day 1. It came well bundled with a host of applications, both Geeky and non-Geeky.
debian.org: Welcome to the first issue of the Debian Project News, the newsletter for the Debian community! From now on we'll keep you informed about recent events and interesting developments in and around the Debian Community on a biweekly basis. But we could still use some help, so feel free.
earthweb.com: I’m an Apple user. Long time, pure bred, never owned anything else. The Macintosh is, without a doubt, one of my favorite things. I reveal my Apple snobbery because I want you to know where I was coming from when I sat down to try Ubuntu, the Linux distro.
linux.com: Personal data safety is big business lately. There are a variety of ways to protect your identity or keep your personal information from the prying eyes of dishonest people, but Eric Wolbrom has what he believes is a unique service. Keep You Safe makes it possible for subscribers to store all their personal data securely in a virtual online "safe deposit box," and share the key with someone they trust.
ostatic.com: Engineers like to solve new problems. So it should come as no surprise that hardware and software engineers have wrestled for years with the issue of "backward compatibility" -- the idea that new hardware and software should be just like the old hardware and software, only faster, more reliable, and better.
crn.com: Custom system builders are among the specialists able to embrace open source as a new prospect for success. Linux's emergence as a completely viable open source operating system has attracted many start-ups on a budget, in addition to a growing recognition by proprietary vendors (and their enterprise and SMB clients) of the benefits of open solutions.
linux.com: The GNU/Linux command line and desktop are both sophisticated interfaces, but they are mostly separate realities. You can drag text into a virtual terminal from the desktop, or use Edit -> Copy to move text in either direction, but by default moving files and directories between them is impossible. Dragbox is designed to solve this problem.
itwire.com: We live in the age of the spinmeister, the age when language is used more as a means to confuse than to educate, an age when obfuscation is preferred to clarification. I've been wondering what is important - the Foundation itself or the kernel.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: There has always been a section of the free software community which has an anti-Microsoft agenda. It’s almost like their mission statement is “It’s not over until Microsoft is dead”. Certainly there is a lot of feeling that if Microsoft went away, a lot of our problem would be over. But do Microsoft even need to “lose”; is there even a battle to be fought and if so what would constitute winning it?
ostatic.com: Spring is in the air and that can only mean one thing: several popular Linux distributions are getting ready for their next release. Let's take a look at the upcoming versions of Fedora, Ubuntu, and openSUSE to see what's new, what's improved, and what will be worth the wait.
blog.linuxtoday: My first opinion during all of this hooplah was that why should I care about Red Hat and SUSE Linux not having a consumer desktop line? It doesn't detract from the Linux desktop as a whole (since their business desktop products are doing just fine, thank you), plus let's face it: Ubuntu is kicking butt and taking names. Except I think I may have been wrong.
Also: Red Hat, Novell, Canonical and the free software desktop
groklaw.net: This takes the cake. Alex Brown has just admitted on his Griffin Brown blog and further to ZDNET UK's Peter Judge that Microsoft Office 2007 has failed two OOXML conformance tests he ran. Color me surprised.
raiden.net: Over the years I've been slowly working towards getting myself a laptop, but ultimately one thing or another stopped me. But these days you almost can't live without one. So I finally made the plunge. But obviously before I did that I also spent a decent amount of time researching whether or not Linux or Freebsd would work on said laptop before I bought it.
bbc.co.uk/blogs: I had a very interesting conversation with Mr Ubuntu, aka Mark Shuttleworth, at the end of last week. His main point was that Linux, and use of Ubuntu, was on the rise. He also had lots of interesting things to say about open source more broadly, the Microsoft-Yahoo deal etc, which I thought I'd detail here as a Q&A.
ericsbinaryworld.com/blog: I initially loved KDE over Gnome. It looked more like Windows, it had more neat options, and great programs. But I left KDE for Gnome for a few reasons. But now I want to look at KDE again because a few things have come together to change some of the reasons why I left KDE.
