osweekly.com: One has to admit, regardless of their feelings of just how idiotic the idea behind Digital Rights Management (DRM) may be, it is frustrating to watch the other two platforms have content we cannot enjoy ourselves. Well, it took long enough, but it appears that finally, there is real light at the end of the rainbow.
brajeshwar.com: Installing software on Linux is not only easier than most of us think, but it also has some special features which help software’s to be updated automatically!
linuxhaxor.net: With each iteration of windows OS Microsoft has made it less friendlier for linux to be installed along with windows. Linux is all about choices, and I believe the users should have the choice to switch back and forth into whatever OS they want to.

blog.freeside.fr: Almost 5 years have passed since I erased my Microsoft Windows partitions to switch to Mandriva Linux. However, I try to keep myself informed of what happens in the Windows world, just to be able to help relatives when they're in trouble. Yesterday, I had a Windows box to cure. Here's what I was painfully reminded:
phoronix.com: Following our article looking at the state of X.Org (along with announcing the release of X Server 1.4.1), we proceeded to share the contributors behind the X Server. What we hadn't looked at in that analysis was the people and companies behind the work on Mesa 3D, or the OpenGL component used by X. In this article, however, we have these statistics to share.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Quite a long time ago (maybe in 2000), people started talking about the Slashdot effect. Being Slashdotted meant (and still means) that a truckload of computers online suddenly decide to access your site. The results on your servers used to be disastrous. I think I ought to attempt something brave: I would like to coin a new word: the Groklaw effect.
