blogs.the451group: There are certain phrases that we tend to hear a lot from vendors — ‘enterprise-class, best of breed, customer choice,’ etc. However, I was repeatedly hearing somewhat surprising phrases as I made the rounds at LinuxWorld this year: ‘We don’t care, customers don’t care, no one cares …”
penguinpetes.com: LinuxWorld is planning a good old-fashioned install-fest for their San Francisco conference.

liquidat.wordpress: The entire process actually works with Konqueror (3.5.9 on Fedora 8), so there is no need for Microsoft software at all. If I saw it right there wasn’t even flash or anything else used. Just a plain page which, in the end, offered me the files inside a zip container.
linux.com: Beagle and Tracker are projects that allow you to index your files so you can quickly search filesystems.

blogs.the451group: IBM, Canonical, Red Hat and Novell have put out an interesting joint release about how they are to deliver Microsoft-free personal computing. In celebration of Linux’s imminent domination of the desktop market I thought it would be worth remembering how we got here:
arstechnica.com: One of the things that makes Firefox so gosh-darn lovable is the ability to create and add third-party extensions to the browser.
