Zen Yourself Free: a Windows Defector Discovers ZenWalk

http://osnews.com

I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista.

Interview with Havoc Pennington

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

Proprietary vendors Microsoft and Apple are also talking about “internet centrism” as the main roadmap for the next versions of their OSes. (Though we were going here before we learned of their plans, and I bet we’ll still do it better—for example, working with all the best-in-class services and sites you want to use, not just Microsoft’s Live services.)

http://community.linux.com

Wengo -- the commercial PSTN-routing SIP provider that is the open source project's parent company -- focused on its Windows builds and essentially skipped over Linux during the 2.0 release cycle. OpenWengo's Linux developers were never satisfied with the stability of the 2.0-series release candidates, so they never incremented the Linux version number to 2.0.
