blogs.nytimes: I have to confess, I haven’t paid much attention to Opera Software until recently. The Norwegian company has been an also-ran in the browser market for 13 years. On Friday, I had a chance to sit down with its co-founder and chief executive, Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner. I can’t say that I’m convinced that Opera is now poised to take the Web by storm.
yabblog.com: Debian? Ubuntu? Sidux? Pardus? Mepis? Gentoo? Whoa! Why are these Linux distros so strangely named? Why not name a OS simply - door, room or window? Although, Linux distros have very strange names but it is interesting to know, why they are called so?
raiden.net: 64 Studio is a Linux distribution built upon Debian with both 64 bit processors, and the designer in mind. It takes the best of Debian, strips out the unnecessary extras, then rebuilds it as a one stop shop for those doing everything from print to web design.

opensource.org: All through last week, I spent my time in Ghana at the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Center for Excellence in ICT ( AITI-KACE ) in Accra.

phoronix.com: With the release of Ubuntu 8.10 coming out later this week we decided to use this opportunity to explore how the performance of this desktop Linux operating system has evolved over the past few releases. We performed clean installations of Ubuntu 7.04, Ubuntu 7.10, Ubuntu 8.04, and Ubuntu 8.10 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 notebook and used the Phoronix Test Suite to run 35 tests on each release that covered nine different areas of the system.
lifehacker.com: These days, it only takes an increasingly-cheap USB thumb drive and a program like UNetbootin to create a portable Linux desktop you can run on any computer that can boot from a USB port. But check out the list of distributions UNetbootin can download and install—it's huge.
linux.com: OpenOffice.org Writer is as much a desktop publishing program as a word processor. That fact, however, has yet to have much influence on the extensions created for Writer -- perhaps because most users prefer manual formatting to organizing themselves with page styles, templates, and other elements of document design. Still, extensions for layout are starting to appear.
pcmech.com: The internet as we know it today predominantly runs on Linux. There’s an extremely high probability that the internet connection you’re using right now is connected thru a Linux server - and routed thru many other Linux servers along the way.
ostatic.com: Last week, I had the pleasure of getting some unique insight into the Ubuntu 8.10 release ("Intrepid Ibex") from Canonical's marketing manager, Gerry Carr. The finalized server and desktop editions of the 8.10 release will be available for download October 30th, and host a variety of new tools and features.

blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently a client of mine came to me with a request: Find an open source replacement for Microsoft OneNote. I had actually never heard of OneNote, so when he told me what OneNote did I was pretty confident I could find something for the Linux operating system that could do the same things.

tuxarena.blogspot: Battle for Wesnoth is one of the most popular and played turn-based strategy (TBS) games on Linux, if not the most popular. It's a free, open-source community-driven project which has done some amazing improvements since its initial release.
ubuntukids.org/blog: I couldn’t wait any longer so I did a 100% new install of Intrepid yesterday. I decided that is was time for an entirely new install. It takes a lot of faith to wipe out 200GB of data. However, I’m happy to report that my new Intrepid desktop is running beautifully and all my data survived, I hope.
myviewmytake.wordpress: A few months ago, I wrote an article entitled Opera 9.5–My browser of choice. Since Firefox 3 has been released, I have used it more often than I have used Opera 9.5, mainly due to the way it works with WordPress.
blogs.zdnet.com: While Microsoft executives like to talk about Apple as an insignificant company with less than 5% of the worldwide market share of all PCs and servers sold, the Mac maker now has more cash than Microsoft and earns more than half of its profits and over three fourths its revenues.
