Controversy has erupted over an initiative by the Open Source Development Labs, known as Open Source as Prior Art, which is designed to improve the quality of software patents and thereby reduce the number of patents that can be used to threaten open-source software developers and users.
Enter the new book title Ubuntu Linux For Non-Geeks by Rickford Grant. It's geared towards even novice computer users who are interested in seeing what this Ubuntu Linux thing is all about (which they can even do without installing it on their computer at all, thanks to the included Live CD), but wouldn't mind a little guidance while doing so.
Dexter + Chaney, a 25-year-old Seattle company that makes construction-management software, is suing Microsoft for trademark infringement.
So much for peace, love, and community. The Linux vendors are as catty as those in any other space. Especially when they are trying to hold on to or build market share. It does, however, demonstrate how important virtualization is to these vendors' strategies.
Xgl is the new hype, let’s see if it works well under Mandriva! Just a little snapshot before release. Xgl works nicely and is great, here are some screenshots. Not much text, and not a lot of screenshots, but what's there is interesting.
Simon Fraser University CIO Jim Cranston says software licensing fees are one impediment to using emerging technologies in areas such as e-learning. Perhaps Cranston hasn't heard of Moodle.
Yesterday was the third (and final) test release candidate for Fedora Core 6. Initial support for Fedora Core 6 was brought in the packaging scripts with the 8.28.8 drivers.

apt-setup is an interactive program that simplifies adding sources to apt’s sources.list. It knows about all the major debian mirrors and can help you select one. It can even use apt-cdrom to scan CDs.
It's nice to see a yellow and black "For Dummies" book with "Linux" in the title -- namely Wiley's Linux Smart Homes for Dummies . Author and home automation expert Neil Cherry has put together 364 pages and a CD-ROM that cover not only the typical X10 hardware and software characteristic of home automation, but also networking, video, audio, and even heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) control that can make your house the envy of your neighborhood.
I was just browsing our forum and come across following question: How do I find out detailed information about a Linux Kernel module or device drivers?
The Mozilla Corporation today issued small updates for its popular Firefox Web browser and Thunderbird e-mail applications, primarily targeting security problems.
I needed a method for sharing a secret that required multiple agents to coordinate before the secret could be recovered. This is useful for encrypting keys used in critical backups. I decided to use an implementation of Shamir's Secret Splitting Scheme (The S in RSA). Currently I'm using a program called 'ssss' to do secret sharing.
Microsoft's decision to not enforce patents on Web services standards underscores the growing acceptance of core open-source tenets.

When it comes to media center software, can the Linux solutions hold up against Windows XP Media Center and the looming Vista Home Premium with MCE built-in?
Move over, G.I. Joe. The Army has found some recruits in its latest effort to enlist soldiers. "We're trying to put a face on soldiers so that kids can relate to them."
With growing support from policy-makers and adoption by the Department of Defense (DoD), Linux has rapidly moved beyond the curious alternative to become the platform of choice for many government agencies.
