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.

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.

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.

iTWire: Last week, following a radio discussion, linux.com writer Bruce Byfield characterised two opposing FOSS camps in the OOXML debate who participated in that discussion as being "closer than they have appeared in the past."
dot.kde.org: In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: A Sonnet-based spellcheck runner, and icons on the desktop in Plasma. Continued work revamping KBugBuster, more work towards KDevelop 4. GetHotNewStuff support for downloading maps in Marble. Image and audio dockers in Parley. The start of Glimpse, a new scanning application based on libksane.
softpedia: I am not a fan of RPM based Linux distributions anymore. However, my Linux experience started 7-8 years ago with Red Hat 6.2, then Red Hat 7, 8, 9, Mandriva 9.2, SUSE 9 and Fedora 3. I've settled on Fedora for two years, until Ubuntu.
Mark Shuttleworth: Is it possible to have training materials that are developed in partnership with the community, available under a CC license, AND make those same materials available through formal training providers? We’re trying to find out at Canonical with our Ubuntu Desktop Course.
junauza.blogspot: Christmas is just around the corner so let’s keep the jokes coming. I hope our previous jokes (corny or not) made you laugh or at least smile. To those who are hard to please, maybe this next set of jokes will do.
This document describes how to set up, configure and use TimeVault on Ubuntu 7.10. The resulting system provides a powerful backup system for desktop usage. TimeVault is a simple front-end for making snapshots of a set of directories.
debianadmin.com: There is an interesting class of programs: audioplayers. What we expected from them? Playing music. What is required for this? Codecs, simple interface, playlist, equalizer. May be themes and control from keyboard. Many things can be applied to it, but audioplayer must stay a-music-player. For this, spartanians and ancient-lovers remembers and likes simple yet powerful XMMS.
iTWire: The news that Dell has now released Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) on its boxes (and about time too!) has been tempered somewhat by a potential storm of controversy caused by a couple of software packages that come bundled with the Dell Linux PCs. The two bundled packages happen to be proprietary software. Is this going to be a problem?
OSWeekly: I have not taken a close look at Flock for some time, mainly because it felt like their focus was too much on picture clipping and the like. But after taking a look at the 0.9.1.3 release, anyone who does blogging or writing for a living is doing themselves a huge disservice by not using this browser - seriously.
