ruminations: Today I spend most of day on a Windows box. Alas, but my boss won’t allow anything but Windows on the workfloor. When the time to play is in short supply I automatically focus on the tools that are created to make life easy. That focus was on graphical front-ends for the ports collection.

linux.com: Linden Lab, the creator of online virtual community Second Life, released its viewer earlier this year with a GPL 2.0 license, adding a clause called the "FLOSS exception," which releases developers using certain open source licenses from the requirement that any derivative works be licensed under the GPL.
Caitlyn Martin: The first public Pseudo (alpha) release of Vector Linux 5.9 is now available. Normally a release like this wouldn’t be worth blogging about. It’s early development code. The point? There’s a 64-bit version.
newyork-ubuntu: I am looking for people who are involved in businesses in New York, preferably non IT related businesses who have switched to using Free and Open Source Software. If you know of anyone who fits this description who would be willing to share their experience with the United Nations on Oct 16, please contact Nathan Eckenrode.
desktoplinux: This engaging and insightful eight-part series by Kim Brebach, a consultant with an Australian technology marketing group, explores the suitability of desktop Linux for ordinary computer users. Follow Brebach's often-amusing foils and fumbles as he investigates a veritable alphabet soup of Linux distributions -- from Damn Small Linux to Zenwalk.
arstechncia: An intrepid Internet Tablet Talk forum member with the handle "Penguinbait" has provided instructions explaining how to install KDE 3.5.6 on the Nokia 770 and N800 web tablet devices. Not for the faint of heart, the instructions require a bit of command-line work.

groklaw: I think I see a way we could be really helpful to the ISO folks having to sort through all the 10,000 comments the various countries filed with their votes on MS OOXML.

CBR: Over a year ago CBR published a look at the UK's adoption of open source software in the UK and promised a later update. That update is long overdue, and is also timely given that tomorrow some of the leading open source advocates in the country will gather in Westminster to debate the future of open source in this country.
informationweek: Add Siemens and BMW to the list of major corporations that have agreed to buy Novell(NOVL)'s Linux software and services through Microsoft(MSFT).
The Free Desktop: I boot my Ubuntu laptop and log in. Shortly after logging in, the IO onslaught begins. I open up a terminal and 'top' exposes the offender 'trackerd'. I begin the motion to kill it. This is a familiar sequence for me, something I have done every day since, well, so long ago I can't remember the exact day I started doing it. A few weeks, at least.
lunapark: For the next round of Linux Releases (Ubuntu Gutsy, Fedora 8, OpenSuse 10.3, Mandriva 2008 etc) Compiz Fusion should be installed by default in those releases and with the release date looming not far ahead the time is ripe to give you a preview of what to expect from the latest Compiz Fusion.
kernelTRAP: "The objective of this patchset is to keep the system in a state where actions such as page reclaim or memory compaction will reduce external fragmentation in the system," Mel Gorman described his set of thirteen patches labeled "reduce external fragmentation by grouping pages by mobility v30".
infoworld blogs: After reading through some of your comments in response to last
week's post on Microsoft's apparently unholy alliance with Novell, I felt a bit as though I'd been dropped into an episode of "The Odd Couple."
PCWorld: While Microsoft's Internet Explorer remains the most popular browser, there's a reason many techies (and about half the visitors to PCWorld.com) use Mozilla's Firefox browser: Control.
daniweb: One who has already joined the gang is Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu with which OpenOffice.org is distributed. Scott Crenshaw, Red Hat's Vice President of Enterprise Linux, agreed.
arstechnica: Last week, Lenovo competitive analyst Matt Kohut wrote a blog entry about Linux on laptops. The blog entry, which included extensive criticism of Linux's laptop support, explains why Linux "just isn't ready" for the laptop, and provides insight into some of the challenges faced by OEMs that support Linux.
linux.com: Every few years, I check in on how OpenOffice.org Writer compares to Microsoft Word. With Microsoft Office 2007 now out for six months and OpenOffice.org 2.3 about to be released, what's the situation today? To find out, I compared the two programs on the tools that most intermediate to advanced users are likely to use.
tectonic: The Shuttleworth Foundation has announced its support for the decision by the The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to reject the Microsoft-driven bid to fasttrack the OOXML document format as a second official standard.
