Linux Journal: In contrast to HP's printer division, the laptop division has almost no awareness whatsoever of non-Windows operating systems. Coming to the store armed with an Ubuntu Live CD, I eventually settled on an HP Pavilion dv2410ca. A quick investigation showed that the laptop could boot Live CDs for the latest versions of Debian and Ubuntu.

/home/liquidat: Richard Hughes recently proposed to use D-Bus to abstract the package management solutions for Linux. He implemented the abstraction in the “PackageKit” layer and showed a working GUI.
The 18.104.22.168 stable kernel update has been released. There's a number of fixes in here, one of which is security-related. "This release has a few bugfixes so all users of the 2.6.22 series are encouraged to update to it. Especially people with laptops, they will appreciate the power savings in this release."
eWeek: Many Linux distributions can run large Web sites, but are you prepared to bet your online business on a free Linux distribution? eWEEK IT expert Stephane Saux, IT director at the San Francisco Chronicle, has some answers.
Penguin Pete: There are many ways to answer the questions of a technology newbie. Sometimes it is appropriate to respond in detail, sometimes it is appropriate to tell them that they would be better served by Reading That Fabled Manual or making friends with Google... and sometimes there are people who are beyond any help, at all, at all.
linux.com: System administrators need to secure their systems while avoiding locking them down so strictly that they become useless. Bastille is a software tool that eases the process of hardening a Linux system, giving you the choice of what to lock down and what not to, depending on your security requirements.

beranger: Everything *NIX, from GNU/Linux to *BSD, has some overengineered or underengineered concepts that don't fit that well with a desktop or laptop usage. A short list.
matt hartley: Behold the vast and sprawling feast of open source downloads. Incredible, ain’t it? Armed with little more than an Internet connection and some extra space on your hard drive, a rich cornucopia awaits you.
still don’t have a title: Firefox is constantly gaining marked share (especially here in Europe) and it’s little not-yet-so-popular brother Thunderbird is evolving too. I’m concerned that the quality of their software (especially Firefox under Linux) has decreased in the last months. Here are my top 5 annoyances.
matt asay: Tim believes that open source, at least as defined by open-source licensing, has a short shelf-life that will be consumed by Web 2.0 by proprietary software vendors. In other words, why don't I just give up, sell out, and go home?
the inquirer: MAKER OF the Open Sauce Ubuntu software, Cannonical had to shut down five of the eight of its servers after receiving reports that they were attacking other servers.
broeksema.dev: Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?

We have today released 9.23, which mainly addresses the issues found with Mozilla's fuzzer, but also fixed a stability issue with Speed Dial.
Freesoftware mag: Knoppix made live CDs popular—and with good reason too.
