Here we go... first of all, an article on the SUSE derivatives that are popping up since openSUSE first appeared. Hopefully, this will generate in interest in SUSE and Linux as a whole, and the openSUSE project should get more developers in return.

Another interesting is on Linux.com about QEMU. It is something that I have yet to try, but I've been wanting to for quite some time. With the apperance of that article, I might just start the download for it! Lastly from Linux.com, there is a review of Mandriva 2006.

There's an interesting new combination about: Debian and Solaris. We also have the combination of MySQL and BitKeeper - MySQL are still using it despite the lack of a free version, while others have moved to alternatives such as git. Last on the open source theme is an article on LAMP.

Sun has got a couple of mentions recently. First of all, it has managed to reduce its losses in the last quarter, perhaps owing to the acquisition of Storage Technology. Its new file system is nearly here - ZFS. As said in the article, the aforementioned acquisition of Storage Technology should help Sun to make ZFS a popular solution.

At long last, we get to the last paragraph. Google might decide to help OpenOffice.org, even though they may have already done so. There is also the new Live technology from Microsoft. I would talk about it, but I'm still not entirely sure what it is...
