boredandblogging.com: Writing for the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, I try to keep my ear to the ground and track the major happenings in the community. It is truly amazing to see how large the Ubuntu community is and how fast it continues to grow. Here are some of my highlights of the year.
blogs.zdnet: My–actually my daughter’s–XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child Project has arrived and a few things were striking: Its size (built for kids), the software interface, which is very intuitive, and the realization that this tool is designed for children–not adults. In other words, dad needs to step aside and see how the XO does with the kids.
oreilly onlamp/blog: Today the Perl Foundation announces the release of Perl 5.10, the first major upgrade to the wildly popular dynamic programming language in over five years. This latest version builds on the successful 5.8.x series by adding powerful new language features and improving the Perl interpreter itself.
Raiden's Realm: The Sandisk "Sansa Connect" MP3 player is more than just your typical mobile music player. It's a complete multimedia experience the likes of which I haven't seen in a while. While some would say that it won't beat Apple's iPod, I really beg to differ.
beranger: I considered Pardus to be a very promising distro, but then I noticed how they screwed up the whole security concept. Even the most recent three reviews (on Linux.com, by Susan Linton; on LinuxPlanet, by Dan Lynch; on Raiden.net, by Steve Lake) fail to discuss anything security-related. OK, so I thought I should check myself what's the deal with Pardus 2007.3.

Matt Asay: Wow. If there was ever an industry that has little to nothing to teach the software industry, it's the airline industry. And yet that is precisely what Red Hat has done: Matthew Szulik, its long-time CEO, has resigned to be replaced by Jim Whitehurst, former COO of Delta Airlines, the paragon of disruptive and agile thinking.

phoronix: It's that time of the month again where we get to share with you all of the details on the latest ATI/AMD Linux driver release. This month, the ATI Catalyst 7.12 Linux driver (formally, what is known as fglrx 8.44) brings a host of new changes, mostly in the form of bug fixes.

phoronix: Just in time for the holidays, NVIDIA has released a new Linux display driver, which is a stable version of their previous 169.04 beta last month. In addition, the new NVIDIA 169.07 Linux driver has a few changes, while most of the release highlights were already found in the 169.04 release.
wired: Hopefully, you've downloaded the latest beta of Firefox 3 and you're putting it through its paces. And while Beta 2 is a big improvement over previous milestone releases and the current version of the browser, we're definitely hot with anticipation for the final product.

nixternal: Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron, will provide you the option of using either KDE 3.5 or KDE 4. Jonathan Riddell just posted the news in an email to the Kubuntu Developer’s mailing list.
LinuxWorld: Developers of open-source Samba software will find their work a little easier thanks to an agreement with Microsoft, signed Thursday, that will give them access to previously secret data on how the Windows operating system works.
phoronix: Back in July, Mark Shuttleworth asked the community whether they wanted a high-end free software laptop. This theoretical laptop would "just work" with Linux through open-source drivers and everything down to the BIOS (and eventually, the firmware) would have a free software license.
