Hey there everyone,
Heres what I am doing: I am putting together 10 systems for the place where I work, its an arts center so they are learning systems, now even though they need low budget stable systems I want to documentation, from creditable places, showing that linux and open source software is a safe smart way to go.
The systems are going to used by students for learning things such as : flash, web design, and 3D work. Open Source Software will save them 1,840$ a system I just want to show them that it is safe to do so with out having to worry about things not working.
Heres what I am asking for: links to articles talking about Open source software and linux backing up the point I am trying to get across, any help would be great.
Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for a good Linux website that has the latest Linux news and software releases. Also, looking for reviews on linux software and ratings. Kinda like a Cnet for Linux. Any suggestions?
Turning a Laptop Into a Calendar/News/Weather Station
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2011
Lets See If You Guys are Better Than Chris Pirllio's Forum, they sucked.
I have a laptop with a broken lid, it is beyond repair so I want to make something out of it. I have unscrewed some screws and I have managed to swivel the screen around, so it looks like a tablet (screen over keyboard - not glued - yet!)
I want to change this laptop thing into a News/Calendar/Weather station, that turns on automatically (I can set this in the BIOS) and start running. As I just mentioned, I want it to show News, My Calendar from Google Calendar, Weather and maybe my email. Heres a mock up of what I am thinking of -
Do you guys know any programs that would allow me to create this? The computer is running Windows XP and can be changed to Ubuntu if needed. Windows 7 is a no no (wireless driver is not compatible). The program must be pretty and do everything I want ! I know, im greedy!
I really want to do this, so your
Breaking news 11/08: WPA TKIP cracked
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 6, 2008
Security researchers say they've developed a way to partially crack the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption standard used to protect data on many wireless networks.
...researcher Erik Tews will show how he was able to crack WPA encryption, in order to read data being sent from a router to a laptop computer. The attack could also be used to send bogus information to a client connected to the router.
To do this, Tews and his co-researcher Martin Beck found a way to break the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) key, used by WPA, in a relatively short amount of time: 12 to 15 minutes, according to Dragos Ruiu, the PacSec conference's organizer.
...Some of the code used in the attack was quietly added to Beck's Aircrack-ng Wi-Fi encryption hacking tool two weeks ago, he added.
...A new wireless standard known as WPA2 is considered safe from the attack developed by Tews and Beck, but many WPA2 routers also support WPA.

Bad news. id software really is abandoning Linux.

I went ahead and emailed John Carmack directly about Linux ports, considering
nothing was mentioned of the sort at Quakecon 2009.
I recieved this reply:

The PC and Mac versions are still OpenGL 2.x.
We are not currently scheduling native linux ports. It isn't out of the
question, but I don't think we will be able to justify the work. If
there are hundreds of thousands of linux users playing Quake Live when
we are done with Rage, that would certainly influence our decision...
And a follow up:

Yes, it is. The codebase is much, much larger, and the graphics
technology pushes a lot of paths that
GNU/Linux gaming essential websites (news etc.)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 15, 2005
Don't se a thread about this here so I'll list the ones I know:
The longest running Linux gaming news website I know of, part of the TeleFragged network. A great place to keep up on gaming news.
A relatively recent addition that has survived unlike the ill-fated Linuxgaming.net. They offer forums, Linux clans and news. If you're in Germany you might be interested in the Linux gamer LAN's they organize as well.
The Linux Game Tome
A catalogue of GNU/Linux games, both proprietary and free complete with ratings. This one's been running even longer than Linuxgames, I think. They have relatively active forums as well.
The home of several open source gaming projects and .plans of some significant people such as the man responsible for many GNU/Linux ports of major commercial titles, Ryan "Icculus" Gordon.
For those fortunate enough to speak german, this is yet another good gaming news site complete with HOWTOs, reviews
