linux.com: WordNet is one of the best English language references available, but its command-line and rather primitive graphical interfaces don't really do it justice. WordNet would greatly benefit from a graphical front-end similar to Visual Thesaurus that allows you to view and explore the connections between different words. Fortunately, there is a tool that does exactly that.
Debian Administration: I was chatting with a colleague over IRC on Tuesday and he was complaining about the new update for Bind9 that broke his automatic blocking of ad servers. Naturally I was curious and asked him what he was talking about..

arstechnica: PC-BSD is not a Linux distribution, but rather what could be considered among the first major FreeBSD-based distributions to live outside of the official FreeBSD. Like most distributions, it has implemented certain features in a way that attempts to distinguish it from the competition, and I will focus mostly on these differences.
kahvipapu: Linux might not have as much games as Windows (or game consoles) but people enjoying this wonderful open source operating system can have fun with games too, as there are a lot of free games for Linux available, even some huge commercial ones. So what’s the state of Linux gaming?

dvalin Karlsen: Adam has already unofficially dismissed rumours on François' part, but still I feel like pointing out the obviousness everybody with some real knowledge of Mandriva should've spotted..
techgage: Amarok is one of the best audio players for Linux, but there is a lot more it can do than just play your tunes. We are taking a look at our top five tips of things you can do with this amazing player.
/home/liquidat: Recently Sebastian Trüg held a presentation about Nepokumk-KDE and kindly provided me the slides. In this regard this post is an extension to the post State and Plans of Nepomuk-KDE.
polishlinux: I’d like to share with you my views on latest Ubuntu 7.04 version commonly known under the name of Feisty Fawn. Once I tested unstable version for several weeks but this time I’ve run a stable release.
Drupal has received one of the “Webware 100” awards for the Publishing category by CNET Webware. The finalists for the “Webware 100” awards were selected by the editors of Webware.com, a CNET site, but the ultimate winners were picked by the users.

And: Could Microsoft Be Going Open Source: Through Linux?
Matt Asay: Ubuntu is not in the same league with the other s that have capitulated to the Microsoft FUD machine. Ubuntu is on a serious upswing, not downward spiral. Why negotiate for phantom benefits unless that's all you can hope to achieve?

arstechnica: Maine has become the first state in the US to pass network neutrality legislation, although the resolution that was finally passed is significantly weaker than the initial bill that was considered.
Linux Online: I have been using Fedora (formerly known as Fedora Core) since the first version came out. Following a bad experience with Fedora Core 2, I stuck to the odd numbered versions - invoking the Star Trek movie rule in reverse. I had been running Fedora Core 5 on my main workstation since March of 2006 and I was eager to get the upcoming Fedora 7.
