itworld.com: One of the tidbits author Jerri Ledford told me during my interview to get information for the Daily Tip entry Chrome Tips and Tricks for Better Browsing was that she felt Google's Chrome operating system would be on netbooks by Christmas.
blogs.techrepublic.com: Much like “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” if you see the same claim made in every argument, time and time again, that claim starts to lose credibility. I don’t think there’s anywhere in modern life where this is more visible than in the Linux/Mac/Windows flame wars.
kmandla.wordpress: I got riled up about five months ago because ReactOS, the wannabe Windows mimic, was making strides toward actual usability. So you can imagine my excitement after trying the Haiku OS alpha, and getting this on my Inspiron.
serverwatch.com: Despite its new one-sided approach, news out of VMworld and analysis of things from the show continues to spill forth -- perhaps the slow news cycle of the summer hasn't yet ended.
CrunchEee comes with the custom Array.org kernel built-in, so WPA-encypted WiFi and the unique ad-hoc connection of Joikuspot are supported on start-up. There’s also an Eee-specific panel that lets you manage Bluetooth connections, your webcam and also gives you some performance presets for your Asus machine.
h-online.com: The eyeOS developers have announced that eyeOS 2.0 will be available on January 1st, 2010. EyeOS, dubbed the "cloud computing operating system" by its creators, is a webtop environment where a server presents the users desktop within a web browser.
informationweek.com: After years of quiet but steady development, Haiku OS finally has its first beta. Here comes a new competitor for the desktop -- not just with Windows or OS X, but Linux,too.
tuxradar.com: So you've been playing around with alternative OSes for a while and you reckon you've got this Linux thing mastered. Maybe you're tried Mac OS X and found it a bit too restrictive (or expensive); perhaps you've kicked the Hurd's tyres and thought you'll come back to it when it's something more than just a clever name. If you're looking for something else to play with, we humbly suggest OpenSolaris.
phoronix.com: OpenSolaris 2009.06 was released earlier this year, but unlike in years past and contrary to their original six month release cycle, there will not be another OpenSolaris distribution release in 2009. Instead, the next slated release is OpenSolaris 2010.02. We have screenshots.
irishtimes.com: Linux is becoming more unruly, but Apple and Microsoft’s systems appear to be prioritising stability and speed, writes DANNY O'BRIEN.
downloadsquad.com: After a second (or is it third?) round of possible Chrome OS images captured by the ever-popular A. Nonymous Tipster on his trusty-but-low-res digital camera, speculation around Google's ethereal OS is bound to keep heating up.
earthweb.com: “The year of Linux” – For how many years now have we come across this headline, usually prefaced by a bygone year? It must be for at least ten years. Is there any hope that Linux can actually make significant gains and become a credible alternative to Windows and Mac OS X?
bbc.co.uk: The computer world is notorious for its obsession with what is new. Anything that survives for more than one generation of processors deserves a nod. Think then what the Unix operating system deserves because in August 2009, it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

carroarmato0.wordpress: I like to try out different Operating Systems from time to time, experimenting, finding out how people find mays to solve the same common problem: “How can I make this computer do what I want the way I want it?”.
zdnet.co.uk/blog: It has been about six months since I tried out openSolaris 2008.11, and since then they have released their 2009.06 version. Time for another look!
daniweb.com/blogs: It's hard to convince Joe and Mary User to convert to Linux when the first things you hear from them are: "Where's my <insert stupid application here>?" "Why can't I just have <insert ridiculous thing here>?" or the ever-popular "This doesn't work like <insert overpriced application here>?"
downloadsquad.com: Google wasn't especially generous with the specifics when it came to Chrome OS in their original announcement. Looking for something a bit more tangible? We just might have it for you.
