Enterprise Linux Log: Linux adoption in the enterprise is slowing down? Not so fast says one analyst firm, which took a closer look at a report that showed Linux adoption slowing from the significant growth rates of the past few years.
itmanagersjournal.com: UK-based Packt Publishing has announced the finalists for its Open Source CMS Award: CMS Made Simple, Drupal, e107, Joomla!, and PHP-Fusion. The overall winning project, scheduled to be announced in November, will receive $5,000, with an additional $15,000 distributed among runners-up and subcategory winners.
daveshields.wordpress: I presented some thoughts on “Linux” and “GNU/Linux” in a recent post trying to make the case to use “Linux” in preference to “GNU/Linux.” You face a similar choice when writing a post about Ubuntu.
Linux Planet: At a mere 50MB, Damn Small Linux (DSL) seems like it would be more at home in the realm of rescue disks instead of Desktop OSs. After booting up into full graphical mode, you may be hooked on this tiny distribution forever. I am impressed.
eejitsguides.com: Ubuntu Linux have been releasing server versions of their distro for a while now, aimed at providing a quick and easy way to set up a Linux server, so I decided to give it a try.
linuxhaxor: SimplyMEPIS as a Live CD or DVD allows you to run the Linux operating system and all the programs from your CD or DVD drive before you install. There is no need to backup all your data, delete the whole hard disk and install the system, just to find it doesn’t meet your needs and expectations.

phoronix: Fedora 8 Test 2 hit the web this morning and accompanying this release are now four LiveCD images. There is the traditional Fedora Live CD version followed by a KDE version and now there is a developer Live edition and FEL.
informationweek blogs: A few years ago, my biggest complaint about Linux applied to many things in the computer world: The documentation was uniformly lousy and scattershot. Since then, at least one distribution -- Ubuntu -- has set a fairly high standard of documentation. There’s still a few things I’d like to see done better, though.
laptopmag.com: When Dell first announced that it would offer Ubuntu--a free open-source, Linux-based operating system--on select notebooks, millions of tech-heads unleashed victory cries. Linux, the longtime OS of choice for the hardcore techie, was poised to go mainstream. We at LAPTOP had to ask: Is Ubuntu ready for the world?
opseast.wordpress: I was eating lunch with a partner the other day and he related to me that a colleague of his had reported that a friend of his sister’s fiance’s father’s lawyer’s second half-cousin (or something more confusing) had said that Microsoft would have a version of Microsoft Linux next year, no fooling.
iTWire: The argument over dual-licensed code, which was festering between the GPL and BSD communities, has drifted off the radar for most - but certainly not for Theo de Raadt, head of the OpenBSD project.
ITPro: Founder of Mozilla explains how a sense of purpose and an eye for easy use has made the Firefox browser such a success. The Firefox browser succeeds because it's designed for everyone to use and is a labour of love, the founder and president of Mozilla told attendees of a Westminster eForum on open source software in London yesterday.

theglobeandmail.com: The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) had no problem going against the grain when it decided to forgo the widely used Microsoft Office suite of business applications. Instead, it chose to replace its aging WordPerfect installations with OpenOffice.org - for free.
LinuxGames: A reader pointed out this job listing at Valve Software's website. Traditionally, Valve has only released dedicated server ports for their games, and this description is vague enough to where that may still be the case.
iTWire: Whether your Linux box has hundreds of users or just one account for you and one for your dog it is important to understand how Linux user accounts work. There are GUI tools for this within GNOME and KDE but here we lift the lid on the bonnet to show what really makes a user exist, and what these commands are doing to your filesystem.
cioinsight.com: Don't be fooled. The August ruling in Novell's favor doesn't mean SCO's claims to Linux are history quite yet. First of all, it's not a win. Interim rulings by district courts are almost never the last word in lawsuits, especially complex, well-funded intellectual property disputes.
cybercapital.org: This is the Part 2 of 3 Open Source Internet Freeware list. Hope you’ll find them Useful.
dedoimedo.com: One of the most frightening things about Linux is the horrible word bootloader. The primary reason for this is the fact that most new Linux users have only ever used Windows operating systems. In the Windows world, they have never bothered with bootloaders. This article is supposed to provide you with basic understanding of the GRUB bootloader.
kernelTRAP: "This version has a lot of corrections, and is stable at least on my machine," noted Linus Torvalds in the 0.11 Linux kernel release announcment, "I /hope/ every known bug is fixed, but no promises (and all unknown bugs are still there, probably with reinforcements ;-)".
