reghardware.co.uk: Not content with mounting a serious challenge to Asus' elfin Eee PC, US manufacturer Everex this week said it will follow up its 7in CloudBook sub-notebook with larger models later in the year.
techworld.com: Secunia has found that the number of security bugs in the open source Red Hat Linux operating system and Firefox browsers far outstripped comparable products from Microsoft last year.
zdnet: OpenOffice.org has dismissed an analyst report from Burton Group which claims that Microsoft's Office Open XML document format is preferable to the OpenDocument Format.
Groklaw: The Open Document Format Alliance has released a paper [PDF] refuting the recent Burton Group's Report on ODF and MSOOXML. I asked for and received permission to publish it here on Groklaw.
mpagano.com: Yes, Gentoo has some issues concerning the Gentoo foundation. Yes, we are actively working on straightening out these issues. No, Gentoo is not dying.
jon-reagan.blogspot: Many distributions have what is called a "fixed" release. While they may have several names for it, it is simply a fixed release where several things happen... The next release type is called a "rolling" release. Possibly the best example of this type of release is PCLinuxOS. I have learned there are pros and cons to each:
Tristan Rhodes: Have you ever wanted to attend a webinar but quickly discovered that the web-conference service doesn't even support your operating system? Fortunately for us, there are companies that offer cross-platform support for web-conferencing. Even better, there are a small handful of open source projects that provide the features of a web-conference service.
tectonic: The delay in the announcement is particularly interesting, especially for the fact that last October was also the month that Microsoft and TurboLinux entered into a collaboration agreement, complete with the ever-dubious patent agreements.
Press Release: Linspire, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of a $199 Linux PC, after $100 mail-in rebate, through Sears.com. Linux PC features an Intel Celeron 1.6GHz Intel Celeron processor, 1GB memory, 80GB hard drive, Freespire 2.0, free CNR software delivery service and more.
The Guardian: With just weeks to go before South Korea's presidential election at the end of last year, Seoul's newspapers were full of stories about historic North-South cooperation. Under the banner of "Hana Linux" - literally "One" Linux - the two countries have agreed to work on a groundbreaking IT development project that might shatter the final Cold War boundary.
computerworld: For Sun Microsystems, the acquisition of open-source database vendor MySQL is a positive step, giving Sun its own database and a growing, loyal community of open-source users and developers to add to its portfolio. So what's the upside or downside for the MySQL community itself?
blino.org/blog: This joint lab does not mean that we share the agreement with Microsoft, Mandriva still tries to stay as free and open as possible, as Anne explained on the cooker ML.
blog.wired.com: A police officer on Wednesday testified here in the Hans Reiser murder trial that the Linux programmer was under heavy surveillance following the 2006 disappearance of his wife, Nina Reiser.

beranger: I used to blame the Compiz guys for mental shallowness. Now I have to add the KDE4 developers to that... sigh.
c|net: Namesys, the company run by murder suspect Hans Reiser, has fallen off the face of the Internet, but the file-system software it was commercializing is still under development by volunteers.
distrogue.blogspot: I waxed poetic about PCLinuxOS 2007 a few months ago when I compared it to Mint (and even earlier about version 0.93a). The new version, PCLinuxOS 2008, will ship with KDE 4, but at the time of writing, the final isn't out yet. They recently released a so-called "MiniMe" version of the final product with KDE 3.5, and it's better than ever- to the point that I would actually use it.
