thegreenisred.co.uk: Ulteo, a relative newcomer to the ever evolving Linux world, is currently sitting at a not too impressive 95 on Distrowatch. After recent announcements by Gaël Duval on the Ulteo blog, I suspect that position is about to change dramatically. Whether Ulteo will climb to the dizzy heights of distributions like PCLinuxOS or Ubuntu, or even surpass Gaël’s previous project, Mandriva, remains to be seen.

gimp.org: GIMP 2.4.0-rc3 fixes most of the bugs that were reported for the earlier release candidates. Some highlights include using the new format for storing recently used files, added conversion options to the color profile conversion plug-in, and improved handling of the JPEG settings.
OSWeekly: Certainly another reason to consider when buying your Ubuntu PCs from System76 over Dell, it seems to me. Having dealt with Dell 'support' in the past, it's clear. It is the over-sized anchor on an already sinking ship.

kernelTRAP: "It took me quite a while to realize the real root cause of the VAIO - and probably many other machines - suspend/resume regressions, which were unearthed by the dyntick / clockevents patches," Thomas Gleixner explained regarding two patches for fixing suspend issues that Andrew Morton experienced with his VAIO laptop.

While I was filling my plate with food, a young man next to me asked, "So do you work here?". I replied with "No, I'm here attending the open source conference." A few seconds later I was hit with a question that I was not prepared to answer.
