ostatic.com: I've been using all the previous beta versions, and while I'm still frustrated that I can't use my extensions with RC1, the rendering speed is so much faster than previous versions that I'm ready to use it as my main browser most of the time. It is still pre-release software, but the speed and several of the new features are truly welcome.
softvision.wordpress: Arch has taught me so much and I will go back to it one day. For now, I plan to decide between three popular KDE distros - openSUSE, Kubuntu and Fedora. The desktop environment of choice? KDE 4.0.
sjvn: I've loved Firefox since version 0.93. It was so much better than Internet Explorer and the other alternatives that I couldn't imagine using anything else. But, then Firefox's memory leaks went from annoying me to ticking me off. Now, Firefox 3 release candidate 1 was released early. Based on my quick look at it, I may end up sticking with Firefox after all.
business-standard.com: The price of software increases every year, the total value of software piracy as calculated by it is bound to increase even if there's a dip in piracy rates. There's now an open-source alternative for almost every major software need, ranging from databases and office suites to business applications.

firstscience.com: United Nations University-MERIT experts yesterday in Geneva urged parliamentarians to support open source software and information technologies as a way to let citizens participate meaningfully in the information society.
linux.com: Quite a few reviews of new Linux releases these days try to determine if a distribution is "ready for the desktop." I myself have probably been guilty of using that phrase, but I think it's time we officially retire this criterion.
junauza.com: People just can't get enough of Tux, the world-renowned penguin mascot of Linux. I decided to give Tux lovers another treat by handing out my list of twenty coolest, funniest, and maybe cutest Tux wallpapers. So without any more delay, here they are:
freesoftwaremagazine.com: In Chapter 1, I gave a brief overview of the Autotools and some of the resources that are currently available to help reduce the learning curve. In this chapter, we’re going to step back a little and examine project organization techniques that are applicable to all projects, not just those whose build system is managed by the Autotools.
osweekly.com: As you might remember from my previous piece on gOS, some people have felt like the current gOS offering provided on Everex machines were simply not good enough for casual use. In this piece, I take it even further, with a full review on gOS' overall usability.
mozillalinks.org: A year and a half after the last major Firefox release, Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 is here with a very long list of new features and improvements.

50webs.org: The comparison includes the major five Linux browsers: Konqueror, Firefox, Opera, Epiphany and Galeon. I'm aware of others like Dillo or the older Mozilla, but decided to include only the big players at the moment.
techtarget.com: I believe the majority of objections to the value of Snort stem from the fact that it's called an intrusion detection system (IDS). Looking closely at that label, we should assume that an IDS is a "system" that "detects" "intrusions." Upon hearing this, IDS salespeople rushed back to their engineers with requirements for an "IDS" that "prevented intrusions."
mozilla.org: The first Firefox 3 Release Candidate is now available for download. This milestone is focused on testing the core functionality provided by many new features and changes to the platform scheduled for Firefox 3.
Linux Today: Normally I find the missives from the 451 crew pretty insightful. But in Matthew Aslett's recent post, "Trouble in Paradise?" I find I have to take some exception. Matt. Dude. It was never paradise. Aslett raises the alarm that lately there has been a significant rise in animosity between the open source community the open source business vendors.
mybroadband.co.za: Six months after the release of Fedora 8, version 9 of the Linux operating system has been released. Fedora, the Red Hat-backed Linux version, is an easy to use system that makes even first-time Linux users feel at home.
mobilecrunch.com: LiMo is Linux-based. Android is Linux-based. But they’re far from the same. Below, I’ll try to explain some of the key differences without going too heavy on the tech jargon.
money.cnn.com: SourceForge, the leader in community-driven media and e-commerce, today announced the opening of nominations for the third annual SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards. For the first time, all open source projects -- not just those on SourceForge.net -- are eligible.
blogs.techrepublic.com: I’ve played around with Linux a little on other’s machines, but I’ve never installed it myself or really tried to use it on a day-to-day basis. So, ready to take the plunge, I decided to install it in a virtual environment so that I could easily switch between it and all of my Windows-based tools and applications that I use for my editing duties. Keep in mind that I’m an editor (translation: English major), not a tech person, and will claim only a reasonable amount of tech savviness as a user.
