mozillalinks.org: As Firefox 3 approaches its grand debut this next Tuesday, for Mozilla developers it means the end of a development cycle and the start of another. A very early draft of planned features reveals that as expected, this release will be mainly about landing stuff that didn’t make it on time for the Firefox 3.
ssue #26 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. In this issue: People of openSUSE: Cornelius Schumacher, Sneak Peeks at openSUSE 11.0, and Tips and Tricks: Jigish Gohil: Useful openSUSE One-Click installs from command line.
blogs.ittoolbox: When I see those three letters, UCK, it immediately comes to mind that something nasty happened. However in this instance this UCK'y thing is actually quite sweet.
screenage.de/blog: Let me introduce you today to a package that is quite unknown as you hopefully never need it. But when you need it and have not thought about it before, it is probably already too late. I am talking about “sash” - the “Stand Alone SHell”. Yet another shell? Yes and no.

engadget.com: We got a nice helping of slides dropped on our virtual doorstep this evening, fleshing out Dell's upcoming netbook -- which they seem to be calling the "Dell E." Um, Eeenteresting name choice, but that doesn't seem set in stone, and there's plenty else going on here to ponder over.
ericsbinaryworld: The Neuros OSD is a device created by Neuros Technology. This is a device I am REALLY excited about buying. I first heard about it in the latest issue of Linux Format Magazine, which gave it a rating of 9/10. What’s so awesome about this device? It runs Linux! “So what?”
opencomputer.net: Workrave is a Windows and Linux only program that can help prevent dreaded repetitive strain injuries. Unfortunately techies are quite familiar with RSI. Once installed, Workrave runs silently in the background monitoring how much time you’re using the computer.
digested.blogspot: I hate graphical file managers. Not only graphical. I hated the text mode filemanagers of yore. I feel deep comfort seeing the lonely and stark command prompt. Using Dolphin the other day to browse through my drives, I realized why.
pcmag.com: Opera is hoping to steal some of Firefox's thunder, with a launch timed to fall just before the open-source darling's version 3 unveiling. Although I found a few sites that didn't fully support it, and occasionally ran into a stability issue, Opera's problems are minor. Opera is a one-stop Internet shop, and it's faster, safer, and more compatible than ever.
Aaron J. Seigo: Havoc Pennington wrote recently in his blog about reinvigorating GNOME development and reflects upon the idea of delivering yet another "desktop system" to the market. There are two problems with his statement.

networkworld.com: Wall Street firms increasingly are buying into Linux, but some still need convincing that open source licensing and support models won't make using the technology more trouble than its worth.
alternativenayk.wordpress: I finally found time to download and install Linux Mint 5.0 today, and happily wiped my already-feeling-outdated Ubuntu 8.04. The moral of the story is, Linux Mint 5.0 (Elyssa) is not a “rock your world” kind of distro, but it certain is easy to use as promised.
celettu.wordpress: I hate Opera. I really do. And I hate it even more because, unlike Internet Explorer, or Konqueror, I want to like it. I want to make it work, and I just can’t. It’s maddening.

linux.com: Fifteen years in the making, everyone's favorite software to run Windows programs on Linux and Unix, Wine, is almost ready for its 1.0 release. If all goes well, Alexandre Julliard, Wine's lead developer, says that Wine 1.0 should appear on June 20, two weeks after the program's fifteenth birthday.
temporaryland.wordpress: The FOSS (Free/Open Source Software) Community knows, thanks to leaked Microsoft internal documents, that since about 1998 Microsoft has been in a sort of war against them. Because of this, it is not surprising that the FOSS community has looked at Microsoft with suspicion and has vilified it to no end. But, is Microsoft really evil?
informationweek.com/blog: The other day, while in a phone conversation, the old canard about open source being a "disruptive technology" came up. It's true, but I think it's one of those things (like "information wants to be free") that runs the risk of becoming a thought-cliché. You always want to talk about what's being disrupted, and why, and to what end.
itwire.com: Rarely does one find the proprietor of a company that is closely connected to any kind of software getting on mailing lists to try to correct public perceptions of his product. In that respect, Mark Shuttleworth stands apart from all his peers.
