A report by the Standish Group indicates that adoption of ‘open source’ has caused a drop in revenue to the proprietary software industry by about $60 billion per year. That’s not a huge amount of money compared to what has been lost though the misselling of mortgages, but it is still a lot. The report identifies the value of these ‘open source’ products to be about 6% of the world market for software. Unfortunately, the Standish Group doesn’t believe in openly sharing its research, instead selling it for $1,000…

lucidfox.org: When mass-renaming video files for Mai-HiME (which I recommend to anime fans out there, unless anything involving magical girls in any way is not your thing; but not the point), I made a mistake in the mv command, which caused all files to be moved to a single destination. I immediately Googled up an instruction on undeleting files on reiserfs...
puppylinux.org/community/blogs: I've installed Puppy Linux 4.0 (Dingo). I like it. A lot. It has really impressed me, and I'm difficult to impress. Now, I appreciate the "blind squirrel" phenomenon - a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut. But this is different.
crashedpips.co.uk: Ubuntu 8.10, the Intrepid Ibex, is starting to take shape. It’s going to be similar in spirit to Edgy Eft (6.10), in that it’s focussed on introducing radical new features, as opposed to polish and stability. Now, I’m all in favour of new features. And, in my opinion, Ubuntu needs a new theme. Perhaps it should be something with a little more colour this time. It also needs a new font.
sizzledcore.com: I started using Ubuntu 4 months back, and since then I’ve been looking for ways to customize and tweak it to make Ubuntu more productive and look good. During my search, I came across many cool themes from various sources that I’d like to share with you all.

channelregister.co.uk: Ubuntu-based things do pretty well in techie circles. The consumer space is a different beast, as gOS discovered when mega retailer Wal-Mart blamed poor demand from those sporting baseball caps and mullets for its decision to stop selling PCs loaded with its version on Linux earlier this year.
groklaw.net: I put this article from Law.com's Legal Technology page, "Commentary: The Penguin Doesn't Fly, Avoid Linux" in News Picks because I found it hilarious, in the Rob Enderle kind of way. But then I thought I'd look up the author on Google, and lo and behold, I find he said something that appears to be not exactly true.
catswhocode.com: I absolutely love Linux, but in terms of design I have saw better than the default theme of most of the available distributions. Here’s a complete how-to for giving your Linux desktop the look you want and customize everything, from themes to fonts.
linuxplanet.com: The mobile Internet device (MID) space is one of the fastest growing platforms with new concept designs appearing every month.
