Recently, a number of sites that feature news about Linux
have been created. If you need to get your daily dose of
Linuxish reading, try one (or more) of the
Has articles and feature stories about
different Linux-related topics.
Now a subsidiary of the print magazine Linux
Journal, Linux Gazette does not contain
news so much as articles about setting things up and
finding your way through your Linux system. Mainly
targetted at beginners to intermediary users.
Calls itself "the first and (for the moment) only

Contains longer reviews and articles about
Linux-related things; often very well written.
A very useful list of new software available for

short descriptions and a rating. It's more difficult to

Linux in commercial settings. Very worth looking through
even if you don't plan to use Linux commercially.
On this page, Scientific Applications on
Linux, you can find lists and descriptions of
applications for using Linux in science and research, an
area Linux is traditionally strong in.

your distribution here.
