Linux Today: A friend of mine is deep in negotiations with a major computer publisher to see if they would be interested in a book about open source solutions for small to medium-sized businesses. Thus far, the negotiations are not going as well as my friend would like. Part of this is the inherent conservatism found in every publisher on the planet.
kernelTRAP: "Some people seem to be using 'Acked-by' to mean, 'seems good to me', without necessarily doing a full review of the patch, and instead of trying to change the meaning of 'Acked-by', [the plan is] to have a new sign off which is a bit more explicitly about what it means," Theodore Tso explained in a recent thread on the Linux Kernel mailing list.

kmandla.wordpress: Slowly, slowly, things start to get better. This time I built up a stripped Ubuntu command-line installation, then added xorg, IceWM and a few GTK2 applications, to keep me in business.
Linux Electrons (PR): AMD has said that the company plans to support the Open Source development community for ATI Radeon™ graphics processors. To accelerate this initiative, AMD partnered with Novell’s SuSE Linux engineering team.
linux.com: Mindbridge didn't start out as an open source company -- far from it. "We had a predominantly Microsoft-oriented shop. Having deployed [Linux servers] to our customers, we turned around and said, we can do the same thing internally and save bunches of money."
noooxml.org: Although the ISO process gives Malta the same voice as China, the reality is that national support for Microsoft formats is critical to the future of the MS-Office lock-in. We look at the figures behind the NO votes... More Here
c|net: Firefox just passed the 400 million download mark, according to the Spread Firefox site for promoting the open-source, extendable Web browser.
Dana Blankenhorn: To hear UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown tell it, open source advocates have won their fight to force open the BBC iPlayer to other platforms. Yeah. Open source wins. Right? Not necessarily.

icanhaslinux.com: Yesterday, I was trying to figure out what to do with a spare Athlon XP 1600+ box that I have. I wrote down some of my ideas and threw in some others I’ve used in the past. If you’re looking for ways to reuse that old PC, just peruse this list.
techspot: Many people, myself included, have praised Dell for going back on years of marketing tactics and choosing to offer a desktop Linux distro as a standard option for people buying their machines. But are they making it easy to choose?

raiden's realm: I started using Linux (Red Hat 9) on my home computer in 2003 and my first question like all Linux Newbies was: "What is a Best Desktop Linux Distribution for home users?”
openoffice.org tips: One of the nice things about Microsoft products is that they have a lot of prefab goodies. OpenOffice.org is a little more of a from-scratch situation. But you have much more flexibility, and you can still do a lot of great stuff. It's not easy, at least not using this approach, to add borders all around, but you can do it in the top and bottom.
phoronix: What do we have for you today? With the 8.41 display driver we have completed some additional benchmarks using the Radeon HD 2400PRO 256MB and Radeon HD 2600PRO 256MB graphics cards. In this article, we see if these two mid-range ATI Radeon HD 2000 graphics cards are able to compete against NVIDIA's GeForce 8 series.
linux.com: The most referenced and most often used command on any Linux distribution is man, which lets users read the manual pages of other commands. Here are a couple of less well-known but useful commands that let you bookmark a position within a man page, and test a command you read from the man page without closing the page.
The Open Source Advocate: I want to discuss one of the ideas that Bruce Perens mentioned. He believes that open source vendors are not necessary, and that they do not add any value to the open source movement. I disagree with him on this point, and I will share my reasons below.
linux.com: If you have video footage that you want to capture, edit, and share with friends or family (or even use professionally), you'll be happy to know that you can do it all with open source tools. I'll show you how to author a DVD that can play on most home players.
my.opera.com: My Opera synchronization is a feature of Kestrel which is designed to let you keep the same bookmarks and speed dials on different computers with Opera installed.
kernelTRAP: The attached patch will make kswapd stop paging out data from zones when there is more than enough memory free. We do go above zone->pages_high in order to keep pressure between zones equal in normal circumstances, but the patch should prevent the kind of excesses that made Sami's computer totally unusable.
