LinuxWorld: The controversial U.S. visa program puts paperwork and quotas between U.S.-based open source companies and international job seekers. "There’s a great concern over undocumented immigrants and we tend to get bundled together with that issue."
CLICK: Everybody loves a new Puppy. And those behind the Puppy Linux distro are happy to oblige, releasing a new version every couple of months. For the user or reviewer, it's a lot to keep up with. Luckily, upgrading is as easy as popping in a new CD.
Motho ke motho ka botho: I could swear that a couple of years ago (has it been that long already?), when I started using Ubuntu, dissatisfied rants against the general state of Linux were shuttled off to jail, never to be seen or heard from again.
foxreno.com: A massive search involving nearly 100 volunteers from both the Contra Costa and Alameda County sheriff's departments has failed to locate the remains of Nina Reiser -- the East Bay mother allegedly killed by her estranged husband.
Fabrizio Balliano: Enabling compiz by default is one of the goals of Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) release, but following a thread on the ubuntu-devel mailing list it seems that the final decision was not taken yet.
techworld.com: The Firefox browser might be the darling of anti-Microsoft Internet users, but that hasn’t stopped it making an enemy of a previously unknown campaigner who wants websites to block it.
polishlinux: Polish Technical Committee no 171 has just voted 80% against the adoption OOXML as an ISO standard [PL]. It’s not the end of the game though, since committee 171 which was first planned to make the decision does not make the final decision anymore. Another committee 182 — will be voting on the same issue soon!

linux.com: Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings.
crn: The effects of the groundbreaking moves are more symbolic than tangible: Solution providers say the path to a broader customer embrace of desktop Linux remains strewn with obstacles. But by committing to bundle, sell and support systems without Microsoft's ubiquitous Windows, Dell and Lenovo have cracked the door open a bit.
redemption in a blog: Firefox 3, or Gran Paradiso, is really shaping up with some pretty cool new features being implemented in the recent months. Want to get in on checking out the new features but still want good old Firefox 2? Here’s how:
vnunet: Data collected by a Microsoft security researcher suggests that the company had to patch far fewer software vulnerabilities than competing vendors in 2007.
osweekly: At least we are making some progress in the field of Windows using tech writers speaking with any level of clarity about Linux as a viable alternative. Yet as good as the article linked above is, its writer is wrong with one seriously flawed statement.
arstechnica: What defines upstream? KDE, GNOME, Apache, even the Linux kernel are upstream for a Linux distribution, and even a totally different distribution altogether may be considered upstream (for example, Debian is considered upstream for Ubuntu).
freesoftware mag: Last year, while running Ubuntu, I decided I wanted to watch a video, so I opened it up in the built-in Totem player. What happened next took me back to the dark era of codecs and computing.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: The Summer of Code for 2007 nears its end. Implementation of more features in the Step physics simulation package. More graphical game themes in KMahjongg, KWin4 KShisen, KGoldRunner and KJumpingCube. The start of a new game, KDiplomacy.
www.lo-fi-librarian.co.uk: My project this weekend was to install Ubuntu on my laptop. Ubuntu is a Linux based OS, it comes bundled with a lot of cool stuff (more on this later) and it is of course free.
I've posted an excerpt from the book, a three-page PDF of the instructions for using the grid, plus darkening the grid and increasing the number of increments.
tomdryer.com: My Grandparents’ Linux desktop had to be super-simple for them to use. While default GNOME or Xfce are pretty straight-forward, I wanted something better. I decided to go with Xfce.
