the distrogue: If you're a hardcore Linux geek, you'll want to take Tux with you wherever you go. Even if you're a normal user, you probably wouldn't mind having a penguin in your pocket.
phoronix: Last month marked the introduction of Fedora 7 support with the fglrx 8.39.4 ATI/AMD driver but not much more than that was to be found. Today the fglrx 8.40.4 driver has been released and what changes does the 8.40.4 driver hold in store for Linux users?
information week: Shares of business software distributor the SCO Group tumbled in early trading Monday following a judge's ruling that the company has no ownership claim on the Unix operating system. As of 11:00 a.m. Monday, SCO shares (NasdaqCM:SCOX) were off about 70% to 47 cents.
This is it. The news you have all been waiting for…
Compiz Fusion Release 0.5.2 is out!
OSWeekly: Whether your computer is primarily running Windows, OS X, or Linux, are you or have you ever thought about dual booting two operating systems? It can be done, and why only have one when two are twice as nice, or so they say.

Tuxcity: In Ubuntu it is assumed a kernel for generic x86 support should be about as fast as a kernel suited for your arch. So lets see how true this is.
Dana Blankenhorn: SCO lost. Novell owns the UnixWare copyrights SCO claimed. So does this mean any legal threat from Microsoft against Linux is over? I don’t think so.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Significant progress in Colour Mixing in Krita. A new, more usable sidebar for okular. International Date Line support, and the merge of Summer of Code work in Marble. Solid is used for hardware detection in Digikam.
Freesoftware mag: A first draft of this article has been sitting for months in my hard disk. I decided to finish it after reading that Microsoft will offer its operating system and office suite for $3 per machine to developing countries.

- Reader comments
linuxbraindump.org: I wrote this document for new Ubuntu Linux users who are trying it for the first time solo, that is, without a friend or colleague who is experienced with setting up and supporting Ubuntu Linux.
Canllaith.org: I had some pretty stringent requirements for this machine. It needed to be able to be docked and undocked many times a day from a docking station with very little fuss, preferably being able to switch between dual monitor and single without needing to restart Xorg.
eriksherman.com: The book Ubuntu for Non-Geeks (2nd. edition) claims to be "a hands-on, project-based, take-it-slow guidebook for those interested in - but nervous about - switching to the Linux operating system."
simplehelp.net: Recently I upgraded my mum from Windows XP to Ubuntu. This page will serve as a central location for all of the beginner-to-intermediate Ubuntu “how-to” tutorials that I create.
According to Absolute website "Assembled to make installation and maintenance of Slackware easier. Built for speed, stability, security, ease of use and development (if you are so inclined.) I am as confident in it's stability as a stock Slackware box -- and that is saying something"
linux.com: Zim looks, feels, and almost works like a common text editor, but it mixes editing features like spell checking with the page cataloging features of wikis.
groklaw: With the loopy bravado of Monty Python's Black Knight, they list all the things they didn't lose. And they are exploring their options. Here they are, at last, with a statement.
paul murphy: Two weeks ago frequent contributors p_msac and bportlock challenged me to see Linux as not Unix and to discuss the consequences of that difference. The reality here is simple.
tuxenclave.wordpress.com: Exaile is a music player aiming to be similar to KDE’s Amarok, but for GTK+ and written in Python. It incorporates many of the cool things from Amarok (and other media players).
