education.zdnet: This question has been asked many times before in many different settings. It’s the mantra of Windows desktop devotees: “Linux is fine in the server room, but…”
ghacks.net: I’ve been using Linux for longer than I can remember. Over those years I have written a number of “top 5″ lists for various publications. So I thought it would be fun to share with the Ghacks readers my “top 5 top 5s”.
linuxtoday.com: I was happy to read From Windows to Linux: a sound decision, by Sam Varghese, which ran earlier this week on IT Wire. Because it confirmed what I've felt all along, that Linux is a superior audio production platform.
itworld.com: Like most long-time computer users, I remember the good old days when it took five minutes to boot my PS/2 machine into Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, and running Word and Excel at the same time was about as adventuresome as one could get on a machine. I remember being amazed at how I could play Tetris while installing my first Linux distribution (Caldera OpenLinux, made by--shhh!--SCO), which convinced me forever that Linux was better at handling system resources.
h-online.com: Several changes to the X86 and KVM code are to speed up the kernel's own hypervisor. The kernel developers once again revised and considerably extended the still emerging tracing infrastructure.

linuxbsdos.com: Parsix is a Linux distribution based on Kanotix and Debian. It is purely a desktop-focused distribution. The last major release was Parsix 3.0r0 (aka Kev). This review is of Parsix 3.0r2, the second update release of Kev.

stealmycode.com/bolix: Designed for both Linux newcomers and power users, and inspired by Ubuntu, Bolix is the next step forward for Linux distributions.
techiemoe.com: Today's menu consists of Salix OS, which like many of the rants I do these days came from an email suggestion. It's based on Slackware and attempts to extend it while remaining fully backwards-compatible. This is a formula that's worked well for distributions like Mepis and Linux Mint, so I see no reason why it can't work for Salix OS.
