Matt Asay: On the one hand, you have the free software purists (of which I'm increasingly part) who demand strict adherence to The Law (of open source). On the other, you have a growing "gentile" body of open-source converts, some of which don't want to have to live by old-school "ordinances" of open source.
oneandoneis2: There's an interesting article linked from places like Linux Devices and Linux Watch on the whole GPL v2 / GPL v3 thing. But it reminded my of something I wondered about a while ago: Namely, if software companies had had more faith in copyright in the early days, would GNU or Linux ever have happened?
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: One of the most common conversations when people discuss Linux is the freedom it brings. One thing that doesn't get discussed a lot though, when talking about Linux is community.
mintlinux.blogspot: A Linux distribution, often simply distribution or distro, is a member of the Linux family of Unix-like operating systems comprising the Linux kernel, the non-kernel parts of the GNU operating system, and assorted other software. Because most (if not all) of the kernel and software packages are free and open source, Linux distributions have taken a wide variety of forms.
itp.net: The regional Linux market has received a major boost after open source leader Red Hat committed itself to opening a regional support centre for the Middle East before the end of the year.

webologist.co.uk: I have installed several new applications on my Ubuntu system this weekend, but only now it struck me that it now actually seems easier to install application on Linux than on Windows.
Linux Journal: In this second and final part I'll demonstrate some of the loop-specific tools I've found in Ardour, Reaper, and Audacity. Tutorials and links to project demos are included, so warm up your headphones and let's get loopy.
fareast.linuxdiary.com: If you are interested in getting that really old machine up and running again, with as little as ~32MB of ram, then there is a shiny new competitor to PuppyLinux and Damn Small Linux: TinyMe.
tectonic: Kick-start your week with four easy (but still cool) tricks on your Linux desktop. Install the media server you've always wanted but never got around to doing, or fine-tune your hardware to squeeze out a few more hours of battery power ... All this an more in this week's How To Roundup.
Linux Online: Studies done by a prestigious think tank in Silicon Valley have identified the most common behavioral changes in people who have switched to Linux. They were nice enough to share their information with us.
BBC: The XO laptop may have been created to help children in developing nations, but its influence is likely to be felt far beyond the classroom. The PC industry is going to be among the first to feel its impact in November 2007 when, for a week, the gadget goes on sale to almost anyone that wants one.
alatinworld.blogspot: I, for one, am a fan of Windows and Microsoft through and through. The other day, however, I was having computer problems when a technician told me that I should back up everything on my computer because it sounded like my copy of Windows had been damaged.
Linux Insider: The Cuban government proclaimed its intention to exchange its computer operating systems for free software in 2005, but the state agencies that are in charge of the switch have done little to make it happen.

carsonspost.wordpress: This is the third post in a series where I examine experience with the Linux Operating System. This post will have a look at the software that I have found available to the Linux user, comparing it to what is available on Windows, and what to do when you need that Windows program but are running Linux.
linux journal: Some evidence suggests that GPLv3 uptake is coming along nicely, while other reports indicate a reluctance to adopt it (but note also Matt Asay's neat reconciliation of these contradictory messages). To see what's likely to happen in the long term, it's useful to look back at the past history of licence adoption.
groklaw: Novell is getting money, they claim, market share, although you will note Andy Updegrove challenges that story, pointing out that sales leveled off after the initial spike. But the main takeaway, as they might put it, for me is that this is an anti-Red Hat deal, and Novell is thrilled about that.
polishlinux: After a boring and dry customary introduction in the previous part of the article, Windows vs Linux: Architecture, part I, I went on to describe problems with Windows system accounts, kernel architectures, system security, and both kernel and user modes. Welcome to the second part of the article.
In this article I will show how to install and configure BlockHosts on a Debian Etch system. BlockHosts is a Python tool that observes login attempts to various services, e.g. SSH, FTP, etc., and if it finds failed login attempts again and again from the same IP address or host, it stops further login attempts from that IP address/host.
Linux By Example: You extract info from mysql databases easily by execute the command line mysql -e. The results of sql statements can be save into various format of files, such as plain text without ascii table borders (batch mode), html (with table tags, such as td,tr,th) and XML.
