internetnews.com: How does an enterprise ensure that its staff has the skills necessary for Linux? One answer is skills certification. That's where the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) comes in.

vnunet: Linux firm SuSE has fixed a flaw in the OpenOffice.org suite of programs more than two weeks after it was discovered.
Forbes: We now know what happens when big hairy software coders work with big hairy lawyers. The result, understandably, is anything but slick. Meet GPLv3, the free software movement's latest legal tool to keep their code from being fenced in. At least its author, Richard Stallman, has pluck.
When reading a hint on the website of LinuxFromScratch I discovered the special capabilities of unionfs, specially in combination with chroot. Later I read a HowTo on a wikiwebsite of Gentoo, about entering a chrooted home directory when using a special script as shell. Combining these two brings me to using a chrooted environment, which you enter when logging in as a special user. This environment is an exact copy (mirror) of the system you are working on.
apaku: I do like the working aspects of it, that is the tabbars, the hover-effect on the menubar. The Scrollbars look good, so it is on the right track IMHO. Still I’m a bit worried about its quality on older or not 100% supported hardware, so here’s what I’ve got when trying the oxygen style.
linux.com: Linux users finally have their own edition of Google Desktop. The beta release was announced Wednesday, and I've been putting the application through the wringer since then to see how well it stacks up on Linux. I found that it's a nice offering, but it slows a system down noticeably.
blog.nixternal.com: I click on preferences and instead of popping up a local preference dialog, I am taken to a
google.com web page webpage that looks like google.com for my preferences. And look at that, there is my directory structure listed smack dab at the top.
linuxplanet: For businesses that use Linux servers for their back-end operations--a category now growing by double-digits quarterly according to IDC--availability of applications is often the most significant bottleneck. As a result, some organizations find themselves in the uncomfortable position of needing to support two back-end platforms.
arstechnia: The first public beta of Google Desktop for Linux is now available for download. Released yesterday, this early beta only supports a limited subset of Google Desktop functionality. The current Google Desktop for Linux beta only offers search and versioning functionality and doesn't support other features like the Google sidebar or widgets, but the work done so far is very good.

tech.blorge: The US and Cuba don’t get along so well, in so far as it is illegal for US citizens to travel to Cuba. The OLPC (One laptop per child) was developed to provide cheap computers to children in developing nations. Cuba among other countries will not be getting them, ever.
adamw’s blog: Cool news: we’re sponsoring aKademy 2007 (the KDE developers’ / users’ conference) at the Silver level, and as if that wasn’t enough, we’re also handing out free Mandriva Flashes to the developers attending the conference.
