Top 10 stories:

  1. Linux kernel developers: Say no to closed-source modules --"We have just been receiving a constant stream of questions from companies asking how the Linux kernel developers feel about closed-source modules over the past year or so," Read more...

  2. 10 Reasons why Free Software and GNU/Linux should be used in schools --I've got a pet peeve. I love reading "Why GNU/Linux should be used in schools" articles. My pet peeve is the fact that the main focus of most of these articles is cost. The way it is portrayed by the media turns it into a cheap “alternative” that you use if you can't afford Windows or hate Microsoft. Read more...

  3. List of best Linux blogs --A good compiled List of best Linux blogs, you are free to add to this list. Read more...

  4. A look at Ubuntu Netbook Remix --I can't help noticing the number of Asus EEE PCs around now, it is strange to think that twelve months ago these weren't really about and there was still discussion of when will be the "year of the Linux desktop".

  7. How NVidia Impedes Free and Open Source Desktop Adoption --Linux developers demand open drivers, docs and development processes, NVIDIA refuses to open their drivers, arguing that the technical quality is not a problem, and that the driver contains intellectual property they wish to protect. ATI/AMD has shown the intellectual property argument is at least not universally applicable to graphics hardware. Let's also clear up a misconception about the technical quality of closed NVIDIA drivers. Read more...

  8. Goodbye, GUI: Thirty Days of Command Line --A modern teenager tries something radically different by doing all the normal internet functions: social networking, music, programming, AIM/MSN/Yahoo, IRC, all through nothing but a Linux command line. And he's doing it for 30 days. No GUIS. At all. Read more...

  9. New ISO: Denial and Damage Control, as Standard --ISO goes on record suggesting that there was no problem with the OOXML process. Read more...

  10. Free as in Speech --With Independence Day coming up, I want to do a series of posts about freedom and what "free software" actually means.
