New Web site features a weekly commentary column by Linux guru Evan Leibovitch and Linux business forum.

The launch was apparently last week but we missed it in the hubbub of LinuxWorld Expo.

Here's a little from Evan's current column, Software Vendors Can't Get Glib over Library Issues:

"While it's lost amid all the hoopla about the recent kernel upgrade, the library transition is turning out to be painful for both Linux packagers and end users alike."

"With more than one version of libc circulating, users must make sure that their software uses the same libc as their Linux version. And software developers have to make sure their products can run with the various libc versions."

"... while most free software can be recompiled for your system, commercial software and other programs that are supplied only in binary form have a problem."
