At LinuxWorld San Francisco, the OSDL held a panel discussion talking about the current state of Linux on the desktop. John Cherry, initiative manager for Desktop Linux at the non-profit, Linux user and developer support group, Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), spoke with SearchOpenSource.com to discuss OSDL developments and the progress of the Portland Project's beta release of its programming interfaces for the GNOME and KDE environments.
The World's first and fastest Gentoo Linux powered distribution now changes its name. A change of style and unification for the RR4/RR64 Linux projects. Our mission is simple: making things that just work, using one of the most scalable Operating System.
Does the sudden appearance of a Firefox crop circle imply which browser extraterrestrials prefer? We don't know, but it was still fun to make!
The Gentoo Overlays project, together with other groups including Gentoo Infrastructure and User Relations, is pleased to announce the availability of a new service as a way to create social workspaces where developers can collaborate with each other and with users to improve the Gentoo experience for everyone.
Freedom and Open Source Software (FOSS) enthusiasts will once again take to the streets for Australia's second annual Software Freedom Day (SFD) on September 16th.
Curious about the man responsible for the application behind CTRL-Esc? This postgrad student will make sure his application in KDE4 will 'flash up in a ball of fire and lightning, flames of fire torching random apps on the screen.

The new "Linux-enabled" Lenovo laptop launched this week at LinuxWorld will not actually come "pre-loaded" with Novell SUSE Linux, a high-ranking Lenovo official said today, contradicting some industry reports stating otherwise.
Oracle Database Express Edition (XE) is an entry-level, small-footprint database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base that's free to develop, deploy, and simple to administer. This document describes installing Oracle 10g Express Edition (formerly known as HTML DB) on a Debian based system.

Researchers at the French Ministry of Defense say that OpenOffice is subject to security weaknesses that make it at least as susceptible to computer viruses as the commercial, more widely used, Microsoft Office.
It's open season on the Windows/Office desktop again, with Novell the latest trying to lure away customers unhappy with the price Microsoft charges for "bloatware".
The Debian Installer team has released the third beta of its installer for Etch, the next version of Debian. According to the announcement, there is now an optional graphical installer for the i386 and amd64 platforms, and you can now set up encrypted partitions during installation.
Linspire Inc. claims that the recently released Freespire is the development version of Linspire, much like Fedora Core is the freely available development version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
