Bruce Perens: It's a threat Microsoft can't let stand: the entire third world learning Linux as children, and growing up to use it. And Microsoft is going to get its way.
Matthew Aslett: Becta on Wednesday published its full report in to Vista and Office 2007 and has stuck to its interim view that migration to the new versions is not recommended.
linux journal: Konqueror, KDE's default file manager and browser, is a good all-around tool, but that doesn't necessarily mean it fits all your file management needs. Sometimes a dedicated file manager can be a better choice for daily computing. Krusader is a powerful and versatile file manager that can make your work more efficient and productive.
linux.com: Wine allows users to run Windows programs natively under Linux without paying a dime. However, there's a tiny problem: programs running in Wine don't look so great. Luckily, with a little configuration editing, it's easy to make Wine applications look at lot more like the rest of the apps on your desktop.
iTWire: A GNU/Linux system does not normally load modules that are not released under an approved licence. So why should Australia’s national Linux conference take on board a sponsor who engages in practices that are at odds with the community?
tabletpcreview.com: Just when you thought the Asus Eee PC was the only low-priced ultraportable subnotebook on the market, Everex today launched their much anticipated Ultra-Mobile CloudBook (model CE1200V) featuring the latest Linux-based open source operating system from gOS.
iTWire: There’s no denying that the widespread growth of Linux was due in part to the raw enthusiasm of advocates meeting together under the broad banner of a “LUG” – a Linux User Group. LUG members were pioneers and cowboys, early adopters and passionate hobbyists. Today, the LUG is different.
c|net blogs: At Lenovo's press dinner the other night there was this unidentifiable handheld placed on display. No one--not even the PR people for Lenovo--could give me specific details. All they could say was that it runs Linux.
The VectorLinux team is pleased to announce the first public beta release of VL64-5.9-beta1. This is our latest 5.9 release optimized for 64 bit processors.
At the the beginning of the year, I want to take you on a journey back. A journey that goes all the way back to the beginning of the year. We know and love this project, after suffering much hardship and conflict as ‘Compiz Fusion.‘
blogs.zdnet: A day after published reports quoting Negroponte as saying OLPC XO laptops would dual boot Linux and Windows, Microsoft is denying that the company is pursuing such a plan.
linux.com: For years, discerning Windows users have relied on Tweak UI, a semi-official Microsoft program for system settings not available on the default desktop. Now, in the same tradition and with something of the same name, Ubuntu Tweak (UT) offers the same advantage to Ubuntu users.
movingtofreedom.org: At last. I’m free of Microsoft Money, and therefore very close to being free of all my old proprietary applications. I’ve settled on KMyMoney as a capable free-as-in-freedom bookkeeping replacement.
c|net blog: Shuttle introduced its $199 KPC Linux PC here on Tuesday. It'll have an Intel Celeron processor, a 945GC chipset, 512MB of memory and either a 60GB or 80GB hard drive.

redhatmagazine.com: Many people claim that “Linux is about choice!”. That’s a neat phrase, but what does it mean? Does it mean that you should have the ability to twist and turn 400 different knobs on your Linux install? That’s what some think.

There is a very distinct difference here too. Let’s look at it from a food point of view (one of my favorite points-of-view).
kmandla.wordpress: In my seemingly eternal quest for a reasonable precompiled distro for my hideous old laptop, I turned to Linux Mint’s Fluxbox edition, thinking it might be an unusual enough variation from the original to solve some problems for me.
knolinux.com: I was happy as all get out to down the original version and try out on my laptop. Sad to say that I was never able to get encryption working on my wireless, but I was thrilled with the user interface.
