itbusinessedge.com/blogs: silicon.com writer and IT analyst Martin Brampton says the open source movement isn’t as collaboration-friendly as its proponents would like you to think. How can that be, when open source development is all about sharing code and helping each other fix bugs or develop programs?

Since Compiz 0.7.2, there is now configurable handling of overlapping output devices, enhanced focus stealing prevention, configurable/optional delay for edge actions, and unredirection of fullscreen windows.
blogs.the451group: I kept waiting to weigh in on the ISO approval of Microsoft’s Office Open XML (OOXML) format, searching for some kind of silver lining for open source. Then I saw Paul McDougall’s report on the nations that represent emerging markets and how they voted against OOXML approval as an ISO standard.
foogazi.com: Theres always the question of whether a popular, mildly mainstream Linux distribution like Ubuntu serves the overall GNU/Linux community well. It’s my belief that there are two sides to the debate regarding Ubuntu; the Good, and the Bad.
fengshaun.wordpress: after a while using Fedora, I thought I would give openSUSE a try. It is a popular distro! After using it for a week now, I’m satisfied with it. There are some features I like about it, and some that I don’t. First I will go for what I like about it.
linuxondesktop.blogspot: Ubuntu is one of the most popular desktop Linux distribution and a few days back Beta version of it's new upcoming Ubuntu 8.04 was released . Being such a huge Ubuntu fan i decided to give it a try.
insidebayarea.com: A DNA expert for the defense team in the Hans Reiser murder trial said it is difficult to say how and when a small sample of blood was left on a post in the living room of Reiser's home.
linux.com: Recently I looked in on the project Web site for a small application I use, only to find the wiki completely filled with spam. The project itself was clearly in disrepair, and the code abandoned for six months or more. I wondered: how many other apps that I use have halted development without my realizing it?
jonreagan.wordpress: Ubuntu seems to be becoming ever more mainstream, with new users coming to the system every day. There are signs that Ubuntu is becoming “Linux” in and of itself. Now, technically speaking, Ubuntu is not Linux, it’s just based on Linux, and Debian, although the popularity of Ubuntu makes it almost seem like it’s “Linux,” and Linux is referring to Ubuntu.

itwire.com: Max McLaren sounds very satisified these days. Not to say that the man who's been managing Red Hat's affairs in Australia and New Zealand for nearly two years has sounded disconsolate at any time when I've spoken to him.
linux.com: While desktop search engines like Beagle and Recoll can quickly find any file on your hard disk, they can't help you organize documents and files into neat and easy-to-manage collections. That's why we have tools like digiKam for managing your photos, BasKet Note Pads for keeping tabs on your notes, and Referencer for filing and tagging your documents.
Matt Asay: It's possible that the Linux desktop will never be anything more than a fad among geeky enthusiasts. If so, a growing swell of people appear to be much more faddish of late, as numbers from W3Counter.com appear to indicate.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: Linux is small enough. Let’s face it, most computer users don’t even know about Linux, let alone know what Ubuntu is. However, among new Linux users, Ubuntu is quickly becoming synonymous with Linux. And that is a shame.
techticker.net: Adrian Kingsley-Hughes over at ZDNet seems to have insighted a small firestorm of debate on a recent post “Is Ubuntu becoming the generic Linux distro?” What Ubuntu has done, both in its tagline “Linux for Human Beings”, and the solid user-friendly distro that accompanies it, is to enable free software and open source programs to spread more freely and easily outside the boundaries of the initiated.
seekingalpha.com: In recent weeks, Sun has quietly increased its bets on the fastest growing version of Linux in the market. And it isn't from Red Hat or Novell. Rather, Sun is preparing to certify more of its servers for Canonical's Ubuntu Linux.
Also: Red Hat, Novell get more competition on servers
