The Open Source Advocate: This weekend I was reminded of another reason that I love open source software: A transparent development process. Only in open source software will you be able to talk directly to the developers of a software project and give them your input.
Also: the phrase “open source” goes mainstream
FOSSwire: So you’ve got your LAMP server up and running, you have some basic pages set up and have maybe even tried WordPress - but what do you do now? Say you have a big site that could potentially have a large userbase. What do you do? Well, you install Drupal!
polishlinux: Last week I’d been given a chance to make minor language correction to the article Understanding the Common User: All should be simple as it can. This article deals with how to treat people that know nothing about Linux, how to teach them what Linux is about and how not to do it to wrong people.
the how-to-geek: Having switched from Ubuntu to Kubuntu recently, the first thing that irritated me beyond all reason was that single-clicking on a file or folder immediately opens the file instead of selecting it. Since I use Windows and Ubuntu on a daily basis, it's just frustrating that it works differently in KDE.

desktoplinux: We knew that last year Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik held talks with Microsoft concerning a patent deal. Once Microsoft and Novell signed an agreement with Novell, those talks were history. In fact, Red Hat made a point of spitting on the Microsoft/Novell deal. That was then. This is now.
drupal.org: ting pages along with a read more link which leads to the full view. Leave empty to auto-generate one from the body. Improved logging functionality, support for reverse proxies, many language system improvements, and improved handling of teasers are among them.
linux.com: Patrick Stakem wants everyone to know that the newest iteration of FlightLinux is not just for NASA rocket scientists. The special hardened distribution that earlier this century orbited the Earth on an unmanned satellite is set to move into active duty again, this time as a civilian project.
Linux App Finder: I've blogged about K9Copy's DVD rip and copy abilities in the past, but I only just noticed that it has added one step rip to MPEG4 support. After taking it for a test drive I'm very pleased with the ease of use and plan to use it for most of my ripping needs in the future.

Mandriva.com: The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries chose to migrate its local servers (about 400 machines) from Windows NT Server to Mandriva Corporate Server 4.0, within two years.
kernelTRAP: The 'Suspend2' project has been renamed to 'TuxOnIce' Nigel Cunningham announced on the lkml, "this is for a couple of reasons: In recent discussions on LKML, the point was made that the word 'Suspend' is confusing"
the register: ACCORDING TO MEXICAN MAG sentidocomun, Bill Gates is no longer the richest bloke in the world.
CyberOrg: I am happy to announce that i18n infrastructure is ready and we can now translate compiz-fusion plugins and ccsm. We would be creating a team of translators, with one member per lingua in charge of keeping translations up-to-date.
International Herald Tribune: As the open-source movement completes its first decade, the fast-growing industry is at a crossroads, experts say, having advanced from nerdy novelty to recognized market niche while attracting the double-edged attention of its biggest rivals.
LoCo About Ubuntu!: I have switched my computer back over to Windows XP for a spin with the Ubuntu .exe installer, Wubi (Windows Ubuntu Based Installer). Wubi installs a fully functioning Ubuntu installation in your computer inside your Windows installation. Think of it as a virtual hard drive in your existing C:/ drive.
SiBlog: So last week I bought a Western Digital 160 GB external hard drive specifically to run a version of Linux on it. I have used Red Hat in the past but decided to go with Ubuntu and the Feisty Fawn release this time.
zdnet blogs: Flock has released a preview of a major update to its social web browser. As I noted in a recent post when Flock first launched, timed perfectly to coincide with a wave of web 2.0 hype, it seemed like a fresh and bold attempt to make a web browser that truly embraced the ’social web’.
techworld: Open-source developer Parallels finally released the source code for the Wine software used by Parallels Desktop 3.0 on Monday - but only after weeks of prodding by Wine developers and negative publicity on the IT forum Slashdot.
c|net blogs: The debate over free software is full of phrases like "free as in beer" and "free as in speech." To these, Stallman added the self-contradictory "free as in freedom"-- the kind of freedom one has when one's work must be carefully excluded from other people's projects.
linux.com: Last month, Nero released version 3.0 of Nero Linux. Since we tested version 2.1 last year, the software has come a long way. Nero Linux 3 supports not just CD and DVD burning but claims to be the first Linux application to support Blue-Ray and HD DVD recorders as well.
the how-to-geek: If you are a Firefox power user like I am, then you probably have dozens of tabs open all the time. After trying a number of different options, I've finally settled on using multiple rows of tabs as the best option.
