distro-review.com: Linux has a negative image associated with it; a most unfortunate affliction when that image is contrary to the truth. I'm occasionally asked "why do you bother with Linux?" by people who haven't used it recently under the assumption that it's difficult to use. However it is my intention to raise awareness that Linux is remarkably usable these days.
raiden.net: In my ever ongoing efforts to completely shed all connections to Microsoft Windows and all Windows applications, including 3rd party ones, I've been doing a lot of research over time into various methods by which I could make that one final push to completely shed all of those lingering connections.
Caitlyn Martin: Over the past 14 months I’ve reviewed two previous releases of Vector Linux: Vector Linux 5.8 Standard and Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO. Anyone who has run those versions of Vector Linux would find the new version quite familiar. In reality the changes between 5.8 and 5.9, which was released in December, are like day and night.
carlanderson.blogspot: Well, I am excited. I have been reading/researching open source software for a long time and I have the go ahead to do a trial. My goal is to install Linux on a handful of school computers in the computer lab and load them with open source software that equates with the proprietary software our students and faculty are used to.
documentfreedom.org: Today is Document Freedom Day: Roughly 200 teams from more than 60 countries worldwide are organising local activities to raise awareness for Document Freedom and Open Standards. The question of Document Freedom has severe repercussions for freedom of choice.

commandline.org.uk: Should the Linux Standard Base Desktop Specification provide a specified standard for office documents? I.e. should the Linux Standard Base specify OpenDocument for office documents as it specifies .PNG for bitmaps? As you may have guessed, I personally think it should.
linuxworld.com: The containers developers have what would seem to be a relatively straightforward problem: they would like to control access to devices on a per-container basis. Implementing this feature has been a longer journey than these developers had imagined. A final resting place may have been found.

It runs at 433 Mhz with 256 MB of RAM, 1 GB of flash storage and, not surprisingly, a free Linux-based operating system. It has three USB ports, microphone and headphone jacks, built-in microphone and 0.3-megapixel camera, and SD memory card slot.
gpl3.blogspot: Our database now contains over 2000 projects that are using the GPL v3. This is a large milestone for the license, and seems to still be the beginning of wider adoption. Nine months have passed since the release of the controversial license. If the trend continues, the license will be used by 5000 projects by the end of the year.
larrythefreesoftwareguy.wordpress: Without fanfare (as expected), Microsoft filed its 10-K form to the Security and Exchange Commission. In it, however, we find that Microsoft bemoans the fact that their “business model,” well, might tend to suck in comparison to the open source business model.
Jono Bacon: An Ubuntu beta is a great opportunity to really test Ubuntu and ensure it is as bug free as possible, so go and check it out. Think of it like building a huge wall, if we each put in one brick, together we can make something pretty darn solid. I just wanted to highlight a couple of my fave features in the new release that I am digging:

phoronix.com: It's been almost two months since Fedora 9 Alpha was released, which we subsequently previewed. Now with the release of Fedora 9 just being 35 days out, Red Hat has pushed out the beta release of Fedora 9 (codenamed Sulphur) with many more features implemented and ready to be tested. We have taken the time to explore the features of Fedora 9 and the progress that has been made.
crunchgear.com: In Helsinki in 1991, a college student named Linus Torvalds was working on what was “initially a terminal emulator, which Torvalds used to access the large UNIX servers of the university” developed on Minix using the GNU C compiler. Linus “wrote the program specifically for the hardware he was using and independent of an operating system because he wanted to use the functions of his new PC with an 80386 processor.”
