linux.com: Roelof Temmingh has written a cool new application which provides individuals with the ability to do data mining of publicly available information. It's a cross-platform Java application called Evolution, currently in its second beta, and available as a free download.
techrepublic: I recently discovered a few servers still running on Ubuntu 5.10 ‘Breezy Badger,’ which officially had its support withdrawn in April of this year. Now, it’s certainly not a good idea to have any server running without security updates available on tap. While it would be easier to take the approach of “if it’s not broken don’t fix it,” the risk of being compromised by a known and patched security flaw is unacceptable — time to upgrade!
arstechnica: Ubuntu Xorg maintainer Bryce Harrington recently demonstrated the BulletProof-X feature that is planned for inclusion in Ubuntu 7.10. BulletProof-X provides a failsafe mode which will ensure that users never have to manually configure their graphics hardware settings from the command line.
On September 2, the comment and voting period will close on ISO/IEC DIS 29500, the draft specification based upon Microsoft's Office Open XML formats (OOXML). The Linux Foundation (LF) has received questions from outside its membership regarding its position on adoption of OOXML in its current form as a global standard, and on the adoption process itself.
In our exploration of the Linux file system we come across an interestingly named file called "depmod". Normally it resides in your sbin folder. Thinking about this file you wonder if it is a link to Depeche Mode.
Raiden's Realm: The Bible is a book that has transcended time, languages, persecution, fire, prohibition, disbelief and denial. It is a book that has changed lives and challenged evil. And it's open sourced - with BibleTime.
The Independent: It's faster than Windows, it fights viruses – and it's free. Should you take Windows off your creaking old machine and give it a new lease of life, courtesy of Linux? Our table of comparisons will help you decide.
jonobacon: I am delighted to have the pleasure of announcing the Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04), the next version of Ubuntu that will succeed Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10, due for release in October 2007).
FOSSwire: We’ve all heard it. “[Insert open-source OS] has no good games.” You know they are wrong. But what do you do? You use a top-ten list. Or in our case, top thirteen.

phoronix: X.Org 7.3 is being released today and for NVIDIA users, there will be a compatibility issue with the ABI for X.Org 7.3.
opensuse news: The openSUSE 10.3 Beta 2 release brought down another major obstacle in developing YaST: the famous YCP language is not strictly needed for the YaST development anymore. A developer can use Perl, and to lesser extent, Python or Ruby.

computerworld: The next-generation of the KDE open source project, version 4.0, has been touted as the beginning of a new era in desktop computing, but only two months from the first release some users are wondering if it's just all hype.
PreshBlog: I’m setting up a PC for my future father-in-law right now. I’m avoiding installing Windows as I hate dealing with it. So, I needed a Linux distro that’s clean and simple that he should be able to just get on with. My friend Tony recommended PCLinuxOS.
appscout.com: Linux, here I come. Making the leap to Linux was a bit scary for me. I've never experienced it before, let alone even seen its interface and what it can do. And it seems more now than ever that more people are trying out Linux.
newstatesman: This week, the Greens have joined together with Friends of the Earth, New Internationalist, People and Planet and the Free Software Foundation to call on other social and activist groups to reject Microsoft's Vista operating system and encourage the use of free software.
LinuxWorld: Virtualization is the hot topic in the Linux business, but it's off the developers' agenda. Here's what kernel developers are planning to discuss at their upcoming conference in Cambridge.
linux.com: It seems like just yesterday that the GNOME Project got its start, but actually it was a decade ago that Miguel de Icaza got the ball rolling. To get some perspective on GNOME's history, I spoke to de Icaza and longtime GNOME contributor and GNOME Foundation board member Jeff Waugh.
free geekery: Recently, our infatuation with Ubuntu begged the question: which Ubuntu blogs have the biggest reach? With nowhere to turn to answer this question definitively, we thought it would be an interesting exercise to rank all of the blogs in the Ubuntu niche.
techrepublic: Using an old Dell computer, a few wired and wireless network cards, and the ClarkConnect Linux distribution, I built a custom wireless router that offered strong security, great management tools, and plenty of range.
