Daniweb: A member of Skype staff posting in the Linux support forum there seems to have taken a course in customer relations from
ComputerWorld: Mark Shuttleworth made news in 2002 when he fulfilled a lifelong ambition and became the first South African into space, paying US$20 million to be a civilian cosmonaut on an eight-day flight aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. In 2004, he founded Ubuntu Linux to bring the operating system to people around the world. He is also the founder of HBD Venture Capital and the non-profit Shuttleworth Foundation.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Work on engine configurability, data management, a packaging system for Plasmoids and themes, and new refinements in desktop icon interaction in Plasma. The Oxygen window decoration and widget are both moved into kdebase.
Phoronix: The Light edition of the Mint 3.0 Linux distribution is now available. Compared to the regular version of Mint, the Light edition ships without proprietary software, patented technologies, and support for restricted formats. We took a peek this afternoon at this GNOME-based LiveCD distribution.
Linux App Finder: I often find myself working with data that's stored on multiple computers, and with KDE's network transparency this is an easy thing to do. But of course there are times when network access isn't available, and in this situation being able to easily sync data between two drives is a huge convenience. My solution is Smb4K.
Frederik's Blog: Today kernel developer Con Kolivas announced that he will stop developing his Linux patch which improves desktop performance. The CK patch set was popular especially amongst desktop users who want to get maximum performance out of their machine.
datamation: The third version of the GNU General Public License (GPL) won't be released until the end of June. Yet, already, it is proving one of the most controversial developments ever in the free and open source software (FOSS)communities.
FOSSwire: Feed technology such as RSS and Atom is something that a lot of websites and blogs use to deliver their content directly to users, rather than having the users have to come to the actual site. There are several command line feed reading applications that are available. One of these is called Snownews.
nixcraft: When invoked without arguments, the date command displays the current date and time. Depending on the options specified, date will set the date and time or print it in a user defined way.
xubuntublog: Ubuntu 7.04 “Feisty Fawn” contained some new packages, it also introduced a bug due to which your data would no longer be saved. When it was released, this bug still wasn’t fixed. It is expected to be fixed in the next release, 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon”, to be released in October of this year. Up until then, we’re out of luck. You’d think.

opensourcelearning: On the Mandriva Cooker mailinglist there was the following request based on my earlier article that made the case that Mandriva and TurboLinux might be next to partner with Microsoft.
linux-watch: OK, so why have Novell, Xandros, and Linspire all gotten into bed with Microsoft? Is it... They were seduced by Steve Ballmer's charming smile? They've gone over to the dark side of the force? Terror of Microsoft's mighty patent portfolio had them groveling at Microsoft's feet?
ComputerWorld: Is 2008 the year of the open-source desktop? Red Hat Linux is now widely deployed on the servers in my datacentre. Users have no idea what operating system underlies our web applications and databases, nor do they care, as long as those tools are highly available.
lockergnome blogs: One thing I’ve been meaning to talk about on here is Ubuntu Linux, which I installed on my laptop about three weeks ago. I went with Ubuntu 7.04, and after the mere 10 minutes it took to install it, I never looked back since.
Getmail is a program for retrieving emails from remote servers; it is very similar to fetchmail, but more flexible.
About.com: I have been using my Inspiron E1505 running Ubuntu Linux for a full week now, and it's been a pleasure. This notebook computer has a lot of little nice features that make it pleasant to work with. Here is how I got the unit to play DVD movies.
linux-watch: In a recent column, I speculated that Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical Ltd., the company behind Ubuntu, might make Ubuntu the next Linux distribution to make a deal with Microsoft. The matter has also been hotly spoken about in some of the Ubuntu mailing lists. Unfortunately, no one seems to have actually read my column.
GoblinX is a live Linux distribution based on Slackware 11, written by a Brazillian developer who goes by the pseudonym Grobsch. It comes with five different window managers/GUIs, and uses custom artwork for each of them that's quite unlike anything you've seen before.
phoronix: In addition to Chris DiBona's words about NVIDIA and ATI binary display drivers, Google had also made an interesting splash at the first-ever Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit (which they had kindly hosted at their Mountain View campus) during a presentation by the Google Linux Client Team. What was it?
pocketpcmag blogs: I've been aware of the existence of the Linux operating system for a long time, but I'd always assumed that it would be too complicated for me to learn and was a bit too geeky. Recently, however, I began hearing about a version of Linux called Ubuntu that was supposed to be pretty easy to use. Flash forward a few weeks and not only have I found that it is relatively easy to use, but it's already replaced Windows Vista as my main operating system of choice for day to day use!
