Free Software Mag: After a year and a half, GPLv3 is finally due this Friday, June 29th. Starting with the January 2006 launch, our focus in FSFE has on raising awareness and informing the free software community.
Josh Saddler: In the first part of this series, I began asking questions that are useful in determining the answer to the old question "Which distribution is right for me?" This second part will look at maintaining the distribution and its available tools for the job, as well as its installation procedures.
technologynewsdaily.com: Wind River Systems, Inc. has been selected by Honeywell Aerospace to support the development of NASA's New Millennium Program Space Technology 8 (ST8) Dependable Multiprocessor. The contract marks the first time a Linux platform has been selected by Honeywell for a space mission.
desktoplinux: Dell isn't resting on its recent consumer Linux PC laurels. The computing giant has added a new laptop -- the Inspiron 1420 Notebook -- to its Ubuntu Linux 7.04 offering. It is also replacing the Dimension E520 desktop with the new, low-priced Inspiron 530.
blogistan.co.uk: Last month the British Linux magazine, Linux Format, did a big comparison of the current crop of Linux packages or distributions (distros for short), concentrating on the ten most popular as measured by DistroWatch. I've installed most of these at some point in the past year. My experiences haven't been happy, in a lot of cases.
tech.blorge.com: With Mandriva and others rejecting Microsoft's Linux payoff deal, there is a lot of talk lately about Microsoft's new Patent Infringement Protection Plan and how it might not be the “you scratch our backs and we wont stab you in yours” plan that it was initially thought to be.
regdeveloper: Open source developers at Novell are spending this week on a 'working holiday' that the company calls Hackweek. Almost all of Novell's 300 SUSE Linux and open source developers around the world - plus a few guests - have been given the week to work on whatever open source projects they want to support.
keithcu.com: I was honored to present my ideas about Ubuntu & Debian at Debconf 7, with a number of Ubuntu and Debian developers present, including Mark (first time I saw him in person) and DPL Sam Hocevar.
seopher: Google trends is a cunning tool; one that can be used to show the query frequency of various keywords. Most people misuse it by comparing "Linux" and "Vista" in an attempt to show how one is better than the other - a comparison that's as foolish as it is inaccurate. So I'm putting my thoughts down and applying them to some Google trends searches and here is what I've found.
education.zdnet.com: At first blush, the new offering, with a proposed release this fall, appears to have the makings of a serious competitor. Designed as an add-on “EDU-CD” to accompany the upcoming 10.3 release of openSUSE, the so-called “SLEducator” is designed to “[ease] the installation and configuration of an educational network and student desktop.”

freegamer: There are many significant indie game projects that are committed to creating a quality free game where the developers are afraid of the consequences of making the development public by publishing the project under an open source license.
Dana Blankenhorn: Centric CRM is ready to fight for its right to stay at the open source party. Who is to say they cannot? And make it stick?
funtechtalk: Many of the recent torrent site downloads of the new version of Ubuntu 7.04 have been loaded with well hidden trojan horses. Many are reporting to have found keyloggers and auto ad loaders buried within the new operating system.
devside.net/blog: I’ve always said that for Linux to have a chance on the desktop it must be turned into Windows. I know how that might sound to most, but that statement is completely true.
Seeking Alpha: Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone. Dell's initial success with Ubuntu apparently has caught Hewlett-Packard's attention.
linux devcenter: With the release of Debian Etch as stable a couple months ago there have been several articles circulating comparing these two distributions. I’ve also found myself in conversations with several people of various backgrounds about this, including Don Crowder, a hobbist who recently wrote Slowly Closing Old Windows. The result of all this discussion has been pretty much as I expected.
ZNet: Many of us know that governments can threaten the human rights of software users through censorship and surveillance of the Internet. Many do not realize that the software they run on their home or work computers can be an even worse threat. Thinking of software as "just a tool", they suppose that it obeys them, when in fact it often obeys others instead.
linux.com: I've been a fan of SimplyMEPIS for years. Earlier this month the MEPIS site announced a community variation for older computers based on SimplyMEPIS. AntiX is an installable live CD that features a modern kernel, recent X server, and lighter applications for use on computers with as little as 64MB RAM.
ITtoolbox Blogs: Everybody loves to hype on their own operating system. We have the Microsoft shills, Linux fanboyz, and Mac fanatics. I am also guilty of getting out the BFG when someone tries to detract from my favourite Linux operating system . I decided to go past all that emotionalism and look at some real numbers.
