c|net: The Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association and the Linux community now have more in common than you might have thought. Via The Boston Herald, Linux fans may want to throw their support to Gang Green because of the team's new rallying cry, "ubuntu."
blogs.techrepublic.com: Recently consumer auction giant eBay announced that nearly 1,200 registered eBay users information was stolen via phishing attacks. That’s not shocking. What’s shocking is that it’s very likely the phishers were using rootkitted Linux boxes.
Linux Today: I was taking a walk with my wife the other day, talking about all the kooky-nuttiness that is the Linux and Open Source world sometimes. I think I was harping on a certain company in Washington State and their recent "attempts" to "open source" some of their code.
ITtoolbox blogs: Here I was happily fiddling around with my Kubuntu installation and at a critical time when the initrd image was being regenerated our fabled standard of stable electricity supply decided to cut out. Not surprising as it does that every time a mosquito sneezes.

jem report: Almost two weeks ago, Blizzard Entertainment pushed through a required World of Warcraft patch that made the game unplayable for many Linux users, reducing frame rates to unacceptable levels, causing distorted sound, and making the OpenGL graphics engine more difficult to switch to.

What's going on at TransGaming?
desktoplinux: If there's a better system repair kit than the Gentoo-based SystemRescueCD Linux distribution, we haven't seen it yet. The new 0.4 version of SystemRescueCd was released on Oct. 4. This new edition focuses on disk partitioning, Vista support, and data rescue tasks. In the past, we've found SystemRescueCD to be the best of the best when it comes to repairing troubled systems.
technocrat.net: The refrain has been that Linux will be ready for primetime when the mythical "grandmother" can use it without issue. Well, I'm about to put that to the test. My 84 year old grandmother has had enough of hearing she needs a computer and finally asked me to set her up with one.

PCAdvisor: In the end we decided that, perhaps, the typical PC user wasn't yet ready to step into the rather fearsome world of Linux. Dell, it would seem, disagrees, and it's now possible to get a Dell Inspiron 530n Ubuntu loaded not with flashy mainstream Windows Vista or XP, but with a Linux operating system.
the distrogue: I might as well just stop blogging right now, because it might be over. I've found the perfect distro for me, and it was right under my nose the whole time. I'm writing this from Mandriva 2008, and so far, I don't see any reason to look beyond it for a main distro.
