linux.com: If you've dabbled even a little bit with security matters, you know that giving root rights or the root password to a common user is a bad idea. But what do you do if a user has a valid need to do something that absolutely requires root rights? The answer is simple: use sudo to grant the user the needed permissions without letting him have the root password, and limit access to a minimum.
itwire.com: One look at Matthew Garrett and you start wondering: is this the guy who caused such a big furore in the FOSS community in September 2006 when he made plain his reasons for leaving the Debian GNU/Linux project after four years as a developer?
simplyjat.blogspot: VectorLinux is a Linux distribution for the x86 platform based on Slackware which aims to be user-friendly. According to the project website: Speed, performance, stability -- these are attributes that set Vector Linux apart in the crowded field of Linux distributions.
royal.pingdom.com: To say that there were some noise on the Web when Sun recently bought MySQL for $1 billion would be an understatement, to say the least. It’s the largest open source deal ever, and the latest in a series of large open source acquisitions. Here are the seven largest deals that we could find the numbers for:
softpedia.com: You know what Ubuntu is. There are enough (or not) Linux distributions derived from Ubuntu, so we thought it will be a very good idea to make a list with all of them, or at least the popular ones.
zdnet.co.uk: Valentine's Day is just around the corner and, if it's that time of year again, it's time again for 3GSM. What will certainly be the subject of much interest and debate is the evolution and potential of mobile Linux.
bioslevel.com: Through the Give One Get One program (G1G1), residents of North America are able donate $400 to the OLPC foundation, $200 of which finances a laptop for a child, and $200 of which pays for the cost of delivering one to the donor. Colin Dean was one of the first to participate in G1G1, and this is his review of it.
goingon.com: At MySQL there were few things we loved as much as the thought of being our own masters. At times it was difficult –even chaotic, but we loved it even more for that reason. It created a passion and strength inside the company. So why did we change our minds in a few short weeks?
itmanagement.earthweb.com: Every now and then, someone suggests that Debian GNU/Linux should be more commercial. To further this goal, some create derivative distros like Linspire, Ubuntu, or Xandros, or organizations like the stillborn DCC Alliance. Others act as pundits, whispering advice from off-stage, like Debian founder Ian Murdock, or, more recently, columnist Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols.
linuxinsider.com: The real battle between Microsoft and Google -- now in conflict over Microsoft's US$44.6 billion bid for Yahoo -- ultimately isn't over search. Search is the source of Google's revenue and its growth. However, it's pouring that money into things that scare Microsoft even more.
A short while ago I wrote a review about Open Movie Editor. Essentially this review was written after a couple of hours testing various video clips and assessing the functionality within OME. Now, I can write about what OME is like on a real editing assignment.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: It’s one of the more popular culture wars in the free software community: GUI versus CLI. Programmers, by selection, inclination, and long experience, understandably are attracted to textual interactions with the computer, but the text interface was imposed originally by technological limitations. The GUI was introduced as a reply to those problems.
linux.com: Storing backups on optical media such as DVD-R discs suffers from two major drawbacks: DVD discs are easy to scratch, and the media itself degrades after a while. You can deal with the scratching issue by careful handing of the media, but even expensive media becomes unreadable over time. Dvdisaster aims to help you recover the information off scratched and aged media.
maketecheasier.com: For sure, not everyone love gaming in Linux, and there are even fewer people who love city simulation games in Linux. But if you are like me, a lover of city simulation game (and also using Linux), here are some great choices for you:
