eWeek: Ubuntu 7.04—also known as Feisty Fawn—shines for its excellent software management tools and large catalog of ready-to-install free software applications.
nbc11.com: The trial of computer programmer Hans Reiser on charges that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser was delayed for three weeks today because his lawyer is busy with another case.
Forbes: Dell became a hero to Linux fans worldwide when it announced last week that it would begin selling PCs loaded with the Linux operating system instead of Microsoft's Windows. But a week later Dell may have blown that good will away.
Seopher: I wrote on New Years day that 2006 was not a lost year for Linux and most people happily agreed. It's May now so we've had a third of the year so how has the situation progressed? Well, it's all good news.
LinuxPlanet: The 2.6 Linux kernel has been one amazing roller-coaster ride of excellent new features and changes coming faster than you can say "git along now, little patchies." Hardware detection and management, and removable media management are probably the most obvious changes to users.
LinuxJournal: If you have a nifty macro or a nice Writer template you want to share with other OpenOffice.org users, publishing them on the Web along with detailed installation instructions is probably not the best way to go. Fortunately, OpenOffice.org supports extensions-small installable packages that provide added functionality.
After several delays, the Gentoo Release Engineering team is proud to announce the release of Gentoo Linux 2007.0, code named "Secret Sauce". This release includes a completely rewritten version of the Gentoo Linux Installer on the AMD64 and x86 LiveCD and LiveDVD images. It also includes GNOME 2.16.2, KDE 3.5.5, Xfce 4.4, Mozilla Firefox 22.214.171.124, OpenOffice.org 2.1.0, and the 2.6.19 Linux kernel.

nixcraft: If you’re serious about music or DVDs, at some point you cross the threshold of having more than you can keep track of easily. The box full of index cards has served its purpose; it’s time to move on to storing information about your CDs and DVDs in a database.
Raiden's Realm: Welcome to part 6 of our series on the KDE 3.5 Control Center. Today we'll be covering the Power Control section of the Control Center. This area is most important to laptop users.
Dana Blankenhorn: The use of lawyers to go after open source frontally, with copyright and patents, has not worked, so many in the open source community are under the mistaken impression that the war is over and they won.
Linux.com: One of the great features of the current version of OpenOffice.org is the support for extensions, which allow you to add to the office suite's functionality. Every day this week we'll look some of the most useful OOo extensions available. Today, we'll look at ways you can improve the way the office suite handles templates and AutoText.
TuxDelux: On the Novell website, there is a page dedicated to the company's Distinguished Engineers. One of these is Michael Meeks. Daniel James met him just prior to the announcement of the Novell/Microsoft agreement, and opened the interview with his favourite opening question to any free software hacker...
How-to-Geek: Ubuntu has an option for adding a Trash Can icon to the desktop, which might be a comfort for those of you migrating from Windows.
Pegnuin Pete: It's all well and good that Adobe did get the Flash plug-in for Firefox/Linux going, but what we don't (and perhaps will never) have is an Adobe-supported way to create Flash animations on a Linux box.
I’ve been on the road solidly for the past 10 days but itching to write about Dell’s announcement of pre-installed Linux for consumers. This is a significant milestone, not just for Ubuntu but for every flavour of Linux and the free software community as a whole.

OSWeekly: It is going to take Flash by the ears and shake the daylights out of it. Fantastic, and from the looks of the promo video, am I to also assume that we will be using translucent touchscreen computers that look like something from iRobot?
