itwriting.com: I am currently writing about Ubuntu Linux, and for convenience and interest decided to install it on my Toshiba M400 Tablet. I could have used Virtual PC, but although virtual PC and the like undoubtedly have their place, there is no substitute for a real install if you want to get the full flavour of an operating system.
linux.com: When I first started learning to read, my primary motivation was to gain the ability to read the comics in my local paper. I had no idea at that time that there were so many comics in the world. Now I know that there are comics all over the Web, but who has time to go to each site each day and read the latest strip?
vertito.blogspot: Stellarium is a real-time 3D photo-realistic nightsky renderer. It can generate images of the sky as seen through the Earth's atmosphere with more than one hundred thousand stars from the Hipparcos Catalogue, constellations, planets, major satellites and nebulas.
Linux Journal: For most of us, file formats are right up there with printer drivers in terms of fun. Certainly, they're important, but not something you'd look to for excitement. And yet that is precisely what the battle between the OpenDocument Format and Microsoft's OOXML is providing.
zeapartners.org: What would be the potential impact on the development of the Information Society if public organisations were to release software fully owned by them under a Open Source licence?
apcmag: Hewlett-Packard, the world’s largest PC manufacturer, has announced it will start selling Linux-based PCs from $AU600 in Australia. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop will come pre-loaded on the HP dx2250 desktop computer -- an AMD-based model.
Tryst with Linux: This is a brief report on my usage-experience with PCLinux2007 (or PCLOS for short). Considering I am still a linux beginner, a post like this documents the kind of positive experiences and challenges a user can once he/she is actually USING linux.
cbs5.com: Nearly a year after Nina Reiser disappeared, her husband Hans Reiser appeared in Alameda County Superior Court today for the start of jury selection. However, jury selection was postponed.

DesktopLinux: Thanks to a note from its creator, DesktopLinux.com learned about a new "release candidate" of Custom NimbleX 2 this week. This lesser known Slackware-derived project offers a Web-based tool that lets users concoct, and then download, their own customized live CD Linux images -- in minutes!
kernelTRAP: In a recent series of patches posted to the Linux Kernel mailing list, it was proposed that some imported Atheros wireless device drivers be re-licensed, some from a dual-BSD/GPL license, others from a modified BSD license, all to a pure GPLv2 license.
kmandla.wordpress.com: I’ve had just about enough of Graveman. It sometimes works for me, sometimes not, shows weird errors after the burn is finished, needs a reboot to recognize my DVD writer … really it’s just an all-around annoyance. I found Pyburn, a teeny weeny Python-GTK application.
/home/liquidat: Recently the Desktop Linux Survey was published. It showed how the different Free Desktop components and distributions are rated among different users. While of course these numbers are by no means reliable it makes fun to use them for some simple calculations.
computerworld: Red Hat said this week it had spruced up its Red Hat Command Center server- and application-monitoring service, eliminating the need for users to maintain a Red Hat-prescribed hardware appliance to collect monitoring data.
builderau.com.au: You know all about multitasking on the desktop, but some Linux users aren't aware that you can do exactly the same kind of things in the console, albeit with a little more hands on control. In this article we'll run through the basics of job control in Linux.
Linux-Watch: By drawing so much attention to Linux, and failing so spectacularly to find any legal flaw in it, SCO has actually helped Linux's business acceptance.
limulus.wordpress: In order to determine when ‘the year of the Linux desktop’ arrives, we should look back in history and determine when ‘the year of the Windows desktop’ arrived and under what circumstances.

Motho ke motho ka botho: I was in a local electronics department store and strolled through the new laptop section. Of course, every machine was running Vista, but only a few had the full Aero effects in place, which is what drew me to take a closer look.
linux.com: Be on guard against alleged representatives of Linux Corporation offering to buy your photos -- it's a scam. That's the message that Indian models and photographers should take to heart, if the experiences of Rohan Patwari and Praveen Toshniwal are any indication.
