internetnews.com: The term release isn't all that accurate in reference to Gentoo, since Gentoo considers itself to be a metadistribution that is constantly updated.
Bits of News: The top five Linux distributions, or distros, are Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Fedora, PCLinuxOS and MEPIS. These rankings are courtesy of Distrowatch. You can go there and see which distros round out the top ten, hundred, and so on. There are literally hundreds of distros to choose from.
boing boing: Internet folk-hero and librarian Jessamyn got some donated PCs without any operating system on them at her library, so she installed Ubuntu Linux.
lockergnome blogs: Change! That is the name of the game. Picked up a “new” computer cheap the other day. I thought I’d give Ubuntu another try. Well I loaded it up and quite honestly I still don’t see what all the fuss is about it. So I installed PCLinuxOS.
ZDNet: As I grow increasingly fond of my Kubuntu install, I'm looking for any avenues that might make it even easier for the average ed tech guy (or girl) to deploy on the average PC in our environment. While the setup is largely straightforward, there are a few niggles that make it a bit less plug and play than Windows or Mac.
eWeek: That's the question Ian Murdock, chief open source platform strategist at Sun Microsystems Inc., posed in a session he chaired at Sun's CommunityOne Day on May 7 prior to the opening of the JavaOne conference.
Linux.com: Mandriva recently released its first distro of the year, dubbed Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring. Like previous releases, Spring is available in five editions, two of which can be freely downloaded. I installed and worked with the $76 Powerpack edition, which includes support and several gigabytes of packages. Not only does Powerpack score over other multiple CD/DVD free-of-cost distros, it also makes competing non-free distros eat dust.
Linuxgames: Version 0.90 of Blob Wars : Blob and Conquer, a 3rd person action shooter, is now available to download.
Jono Bacon: Kick arse. Kick arse. Those are the only ways to describe the Ubuntu Developer Summit. Here we are in Seville having a blast and getting some really productive work done. I have actually been here since Wednesday for the Ubuntu Education Summit and the Ubucon, and everything has been running smoothly.
ZDNet Education: Well, sooner or later, it was bound to happen. We are in the process of retiring our last two instructional UNIX/Linux labs. And guess what? Nobody seems to care!
kernelTRAP: Jörn Engel announced LogFS, "a scalable flash filesystem." The project's home page notes that LogFS aims to be the successor of JFFS2, "the two main problems of JFFS2 are memory consumption and mount time. Unlike most filesystems, there is no tree structure of any sorts on the medium."
FOSSwire: Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS systems (and possibly more distributions too) ship with a tool called Logwatch. Logwatch is absolutely invaluable if you’re running a server of any kind as it allows you to stay up-to-date with what’s going on inside your system.
Dana Blankenhorn: The straw man in this case is the Microsoft-led argument that using Linux carries patent risks. It doesn't. But signing on to the idea that it might is like my running bet that I'll die next year. It's insurance.
Seeking Alpha: When Red Hat kicks off its annual customer conference today in San Diego, I will be watching closely. The company faces at least seven key challenges--and opportunities--as it tries to remain the open source industry's most successful company. Here's the rundown.
Phoronix: SLAX is one of our favorite Linux distributions so when SLAX 6.0 RC3 was released you can be sure that had caught our attention. New in SLAX 6.0.0 RC3 is the Linux 188.8.131.52 kernel, full NTFS write support, and upgrades to Slackware current.
Linux.com: Although OpenOffice.org doesn't allow you to create self-running Impress presentations, there is a tool that can help you with that. Using IndeView, you can convert your Impress presentations into a self-contained package that can run off a CD or DVD on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
internetnews.com: Red Hat Exchange (RHX) was a part of the hoopla surrounding Red Hat's release of its next-generation Linux platform. The Exchange, which is expected to formally be launched on May 10 at the Red Hat Summit, is an effort to make it easier for end users to get a myriad of third-party vendors' applications directly from Red Hat.
techbookreport: For a beginner contemplating switching to Linux there are a bewildering number of flavours to choose from. For those coming from the world of Windows, this wide range of Linux distributions presents a real dilemma. In that kind of situation, Ubuntu Linux should be high on the list of candidates.
Linux-gamers: Some recent news just reached us from the doom3 LMS project: As always there are a lot of exciting things going on at Last Man Standing Co-op! We are moving forward to the 4.0 release and we have a lot of neat goodies for you.
BBC: A version of the increasingly popular Linux operating system Ubuntu will be developed for use on net-enabled phones and devices. The Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded project aims to create the open source platform for initial release in October 2007.
