linuxextremist.com: My fiancee likes small laptops. One of her first recovery missions for me was to take an old Dell and see if Linux would revive it. Sadly, even Ubuntu can’t make a laptop that has a battery running as hot as short order chef’s griddle run better.
linuxhaxor.net: Ever since I read Jeremy Allison’s blog post about why we need to hear criticisms from people who dislikes Linux, I have been thinking a lot about what he said and how it hits very close to my own philosophy about life: In order to improve, you need to be open to criticisms; even from your enemies. Here are some of the popular sites who are active critics of linux:
junauza.com: Most Linux Distribution websites have been redesigned to sport a Web 2.0 look. To give credit to their talented web designers/developers, I’ll pick 10 Linux Distribution websites that I think stand out from the rest.
dawningvalley.com: Recently, there’s been a lot of talk about cloud computing. The CherryPal Linux-based machine got on both Slashdot and Digg when it announced it was shipping a machine with “Firefox as the OS”. And the Red Hat CEO thinks that cloud computing is the way of the future. Unfortunately, they’re all wrong.
izanbardprince.wordpress: I downloaded a Mandriva One 2008.1 disc to try out the other day, and tried it on three systems. What I found is that while Mandriva is definitely a good distribution from many points, it still has some pretty damning problems that rule it out for new users.
linuxmint.com/blog: Our server was hacked and code was injected into it to make connections on our behalf to pinoc.org and download a trojan called JS/Tenia.d
groklaw.net: Here are some more screenshots for you, showing the real Santa Cruz Operation relationship with Linux before the modern day SCO Group began suing the world and its dog. Back in the late 1990s, Santa Cruz had what it called its "Linux strategy". It included both money and support to help Linux succeed.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: Rupesh Shah, the project leader of Intux, had posted a thread in the intux forum that read "The release of intux OS v1.0 will be uploaded very soon. The developers of intuxOS are trying their best to meet the expectations of community and won't deliver anything less than the best." But this outrageous proclamation has been proven a lie outright.
efytimes.com: Despite being only 15 years old, Debian is more mature than any of the other operating systems. And it is available for free to download and use.

Open source is a term that we have all heard. Open source simply means that the complete code of a program is available to anyone and can be modified in any way pleased. Why is this correct? Very simple. Have you you ever played the game of "Secret"; A game were a secret is whispered from person to person and the secret has to come back the same way it was originally to the person who started it.
jonobacon.org: Historically, the relationship between Debian and Ubuntu has been strained at times. There are various technical and social reasons behind this discomfort in our relationship, and while there is still work to be done to ensure we are working effectively together, the relationship has most certainly improved in recent years.
fosswire.com: In KDE 3, extracting archives, such as zip and tar files, is pretty simple. You just find the relevant file in Konqueror or Dolphin, right-click it and choose Extract for a list of extraction options. For some reason, that functionality hasn’t been copied over to KDE 4.
linux-foundation.org/weblogs: So the bloggers over at ZDNet have once again proclaimed the end of the operating system. Is the OS going away if people primarily use applications via a browser? I use hosted applications via a browser. I use Word Press, Flickr, Google Apps, Gmail, online money management, online banking and so on.

ostatic.com: The BBC's iPlayer site has been a target of open source community ire since it started. Originally delivering content via Microsoft DRM-protected technologies, a recent announcement from the BBC's Erik Huggers appears to offer some promise of relief:
168hours.wordpress: There are many cases when after looking at some of the FAQ on the web you ask yourself: “Are they for real? Who asks those questions anyway?” On the other hand there are many really helpful FAQ.
linux.com: Since the Chinese government began supporting domestic open source communities in 2005, hundreds of thousands of young people in the world's most populous country have become a part of the open source world.
Mandriva released the 2009 Beta 1 iso's on July 29th. I downloaded the i586 version then. Since then, hundreds of software updates, patches, and fixes have been placed into Mandriva's "Cooker" repositories, Cooker being Mandriva's name for it's development branch.
How are things shaping up for the Mandriva 2009 release? And how's KDE 4.1 working on this new release?
downloadsquad.com: Firefox is one of those applications that's so hard to write about, because there may be little tricks and shortcuts I've been using for some time, and someone will discover one and say, "Hey, that rocks! Why didn't anyone tell me?"
