ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I have been using Thunderbird for quite a while now. It’s a great e-mail client and the fact that you can use it on multiple platforms made it a winner for me. I carry a USB-drive around with Portable Thunderbird on it. But… Thunderbird was starting to give me a few headaches.

itnews.com.au: Results of Australia’s first large-scale Open Source community census have been released to the public. The Australian Open Source Industry & Community Report gives voice to the business potentials, patterns and concerns of a previously mute sector of the IT industry.
crn.com: Like the Hatfields and McCoys, some debates are as old as the hills, and no one ever seems to win. In the IT industry, security pundits have long been arguing the question of whether Linux is more secure than Windows with similarly inconclusive results.

gimp.org: A new release of the user manual is available: new translations: Lithuanian, Polish, new content, spelling and grammar fixes.
reviewlinux.com: Here is a short screenshot tour of the latest from Mandriva Linux. Just released Mandriva One 2008.1 Spring GNOME and KDE Editions. Today we will show only the GNOME release.
drupal.org: Drupal 6.2, a maintenance release that fixes problems reported using the bug tracking system, as well as security vulnerabilities is now available for download. Upgrading your existing Drupal 6 sites is strongly recommended.
mail.gnome.org: This is the first update to GNOME 2.22. Come and see all the bug fixing, all the new translations and all the updated documentation brought to you by the wonderful team of GNOME contributors!
thedelphicfuture.org: Coming back from the Open Source Goat Rodeo (OSGR) and spending excellent time with old and new friends got me thinking again about this theoretical possibility.
routecafe.com/david: Ubuntu is one of the most popular distros right now. Yet, it has lost its touch in matter of speed and performance for me and my machine. Now, why would I chose Zenwalk over Ubuntu? Lightweight, XFCE adaptation and friendly community.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Look through a list available packages for any free OS and you’ll find a sometimes bewildering choice of browsers, mail readers, editors, desktops and tetris-clones available. Despite this many will just blindly install the first one they’ve heard of. Is this a good policy? What good is all this choice if we don’t use it and what are those choices?
cnet.com: It's just a matter of time before Ubuntu is crowned "enterprise ready" by one of the major ISVs. Will it be able to maintain its popularity once it is popular with enterprise buyers?
tuxtoday.wordpress: To be honest, there isn’t a discussion to be had over which os is better between the major Linux distros or Vista. It’s so obvious that you have a lot more functionality in, say Ubuntu or Suse. Linux is good enough, and that’s the key.
linuxcanuck.wordpress: I had an epiphany the other day. It happened this way. I was using Ubuntu, my Linux operating system of choice, when I found myself looking at my screen, mindlessly twirling the Compiz Fusion cube and painting fire on the screen. I was restless. And then it struck me.
blogs.techrepublic.com: I can’t begin to tell you how many people over the years I have consulted with about choosing a Linux distribution. And even with my own personal loyalties to one distribution or another, it always amazes me how certain distributions are better suited to various users and needs. So when I set out to write a 10 Things article, it only made sense that my first one be related to choosing a Linux distribution.
noooxml.org: People were demonstrating today in Oslo in front of the ISO SC34 meeting against the adoption of Microsoft OOXML as an ISO standard, and especially against the behaviour of Standards Norway, who voted Yes to the specification, despite a lack of support by a majority of the technical committee.
Also: Unix beardies get legal over OOXML
linux.com: The Asus Eee PC ultraportable comes bundled with a version of Xandros as its operating system. If you would like to try a different Linux distro on your Eee, there are plenty of options to choose from, including eeeXubuntu, EeeDora, ZenEee, EeePCLinuxOS, and Puppeee. The latter is based on Puppy Linux.
kdedevelopers.org (coolo): We implemented some very interesting features for openSUSE 11.0 to make the installation easier and faster:
