There are 100s of Linux distributions. And then there are some more of them. Ever wondered which is the best linux distribution out there ? Here is an interesting article which pursues this thought to arrive at a conclusive answer.

Hours after striking a licensing deal with RIM's tormentor NTP, mobile email provider Visto is suing Microsoft for patent infringement. "Microsoft has a long and well-documented history of acquiring the technology of others, branding it as their own, and entering new markets," said CEO Brian Bogosian in a statement.
But rivals skeptical of software vows.
A Microsoft Corp. executive said yesterday that his company's new office software will comply with a disputed Massachusetts government mandate requiring the use of ''open" data formats. Executives from rival software makers greeted the pledge with skepticism. But Massachusetts' chief information officer, Peter Quinn, who's leading the drive for the new data standard, said the Microsoft proposal will probably meet the state's demands.

So I'm in the odd position of being unable to run my own scoop: thatSun Microsystems is not only opening itsSPARC microprocessor source code, but leaning toward theGPL as its license.
That's because Sun's President and COO,Jonathan Schwartz, said that to me on stage at theSyndicate conference in San Francisco, where his keynote took the form of a conversation with yours truly and the audience.Dan Farber and David Berlind got the scoop, writing the story from their table in front of the stage. Check it outhere andhere, respectively.
"We live in a three OS, two hardware platform world, but that's going to start changing in 2006. Apple will begin migrating Macs to Intel CPUs, and the new 'Macintel' computers will be able to run Windows, Linux x86, and Mac OS X," Dan Knight writes for Low End Mac. "Windows does a lot of things right, but the underlying operating system is so full of holes it makes Swiss cheese look solid. Linux does a lot of things right, but there are still those geeky things that require you to use the terminal."
First Look: Version 1.5 of the Mozilla Foundation's e-mail client brings with it a useful set of new features, without the annoying bugs of the earlier version.
It seems like a week can't go by without announcements of open source companies cozying up to proprietary vendors, or vice versa. Does this sound a death knell for the independent open source movement? Does it mean that proprietary vendors are using open source products as weapons against competitors? More importantly, can these deals give IT organizations the both of best worlds?
Complaint from the Silicon Valley types: they hate the OSes on mobile phones. They are either sandboxed with Java, extorted by Qualcomm using Brew, dealing with the devil using Windows Mobile, backing a dead-horse with Palm or struggling with Symbian. Even mobile Linux is usually locked down or in modified in weird ways. This is where the 770 really shines: It uses a version of basic desktop Debian Linux.
Corporations spend billions building effective security protocols, but complacency and a desire for efficiency can soon lead to deviations from security protocols that workers gradually become accustomed to. The result is that small but potentially crippling holes develop in even the most effective systems, creating openings for attackers, including, potentially, insiders. Countering the insider threat requires a comprehensive, multi-tiered approach that includes physical controls, software access controls, and software protection/obfuscation.
Panel Discussion to Focus on the 'Silent Revolution' in Enterprise Software
To "get" the beauty of evolution, you have go on a long voyage to the Galapagos Islands, or at least slog through The Origin of Species
(Darwin), and to really get the beauty of Debian
, you have to dig into the really complex code structure and social structure that Debian represents. Where are you going to get the overview that you need to be able to swallow the huge Debian pill
Debian is one of the earliest Linux distribution around. It caught the public's fancy because of the ease of installing and uninstalling applications on it. When many other linux distributions were bogged down in dependency hell, Debian users were shielded from these problems owing to Debian's superior package handling capablities using apt-get.

We recently saw a minor security bug discovered in the latest stable release of the popular Mozilla Firefox 1.5 browser. However, there are more issues if you are still using one of the older versions of the browser. A working code has been released on the internet, which makes use of a flaw in the older version of the open source browser. And if you have not upgraded to the latest version (Firefox 1.5), it is a good time to do so.
Sun's chief open-source officer says customers shouldn't have to continually buy document software in order to keep their information and documents alive.
Nokia's 770 Internet Tablet has been reviewed at Arstechnica and they write. "So what exactly is an Internet Tablet?
The Nokia 770 measures 5.5in. x 3.1in x 0.7in and weighs in at a hair over 8 ounces. It also has a 4.13in. LCD display, and what a display it is: 16-bit color at 800x480. It runs something called "Internet Tablet 2005 Software Edition" which is actually a tweaked version of Debian. It comes with a fair amount of bundled applications including a web browser (Opera), e-mail client, audio and video players, image viewer, RSS reader, Internet radio player, and more."
Since the announcement that Internet Explorer 7 would add built-in support for RSS news feeds there has been much discussion over two key points: what to call them and what icon to use. Microsoft developers shared conceptual designs in October, but have now settled on a preexisting icon -- Firefox's.
