Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols: The three biggest community Linuxes are Fedora, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. They're all popular. They're all good. But which is the best?
Charles Babcock: It must be maddening to believe you command developer loyalties and lead legions worldwide, then watch developers flock to the Linux kernel. Maddening, that is, if you're Microsoft. Why does Microsoft say its patents cover Linux, while at the same time reaching out to other open source code projects?

eWeek: The latest versions of fast-moving OpenSUSE, Ubuntu and Fedora make a strong case for Linux on the desktop, but there's lots of integration work to be done.
blogcritics.org: Working in a university environment, one gets used to doing more with less. Security, particularly, seems to never get the budget it deserves though it has increased in recent years. For all their limitations, open-source tools are the vital lifeblood that makes IT work, and work securely, in academia.
laptopmag.com: While it's not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison (the XO and the Eee PC are intended for two different markets, after all), there's enough similarities between the two to merit a head-to-head comparison. Here's how these two cheap but innovative portables stack up in seven categories.
wired blog: Witness No. 3 continued on the stand Tuesday in the Hans Reiser murder trial, and she quickly became the subject of several insults under cross examination by the defendant's attorney.
blogs.techtarget.com: In the past 24 hours, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) beta became available to the public through Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud service. While RHEL has been available in limited beta for a few weeks, this public beta announcement comes right before Novell’s launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, its latest enterprise OS offering.

linux-watch: For the fifth year, CIO Insight polled IT executives on how well their major vendors deliver business value, reliability and quality. This year's winner? The No. 1 vendor? None other than Linux distributor Red Hat.
onlamp.com: If you're not familiar with the area of Linux audio editors, you might be totally amazed at just how many there are. Clearly, writing these has scratched more than a few itches and more than one has earned grades as a class project.
linux.com: Linux is an excellent platform for network administration. If you want to monitor your network traffic, you can find many tools -- some accessible from a Web interface, others using a graphical interface -- but nothing beats the speed of the command line. Command-line tools are also useful in shell scripts, where they can help you perform complex tasks. Here's a handful of my favorites for monitoring network traffic.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: While Linux might be able to gain share at the expense of the still-unpopular Vista, it's possible that tired old PCs aren't that important anyway.
regdeveloper.co.uk: There are lots of reasons why Linux has not ousted Windows - many of them nothing to do with technology or logic and more to do with politics. Nevertheless there are still outstanding technical issues - not least is the problem of fragmentation that confuses users and developers alike. A quick scan of a Distrowatch more than illustrates the simple point - yes I know I like Linux - but which version?
junauza.blogspot: On this year's 48th issue of DistroWatch Weekly, Ladislav Bodnar wrote a message to MEPIS fans that sent heated emails to DistroWatch. Righteously, he gave them lessons on the proper things that they should have done. But what caused some MEPIS fans to act this way?
linux.com: One of the biggest complaints a Firefox evangelist encounters is "it doesn't act or feel like browser X." Internet Explorer users complain that Firefox doesn't look like what they're used to. Opera, Safari, and Netscape users complain that it's missing many of their favorite features.
Also: Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 Released
osweekly.com: Although I do use Windows for some work related tasks, other than that, I’m basically on either one of my Macs 100 percent of the time. The switch has been very good to me, and although I never thought that I would get to the Machead stage, I’m definitely there, albeit in a reasonable way.
Charles Babcock: The Linux kernel is surrounded by hundreds of interested parties. How is it that none of them gains a commanding influence over the kernel's development priorities? HP, IBM, Oracle. Google, eBay and Intel each has a primary stake in Linux and employs kernel developers. Does this mean money talks when it comes to Linux? If not, why not?
post-gazette.com: At the beginning of November, Wal-Mart gave shoppers a chance to get an early start on their holiday shopping by offering a $199 desktop computer, both in its stores and online at WalMart.com. The retailing giant's promotion is the second initiative from a major player to offer Linux-based PCs in 2007.
