I’m sure there has to be more out there. What are they?

Also, in case you weren’t aware, computer books and print publications aren’t doing very well. Next time your at the bookstore or browsing around on Amazon, consider picking up that O’Reilly Python book you’ve been meaning to buy for a year now, or maybe one of the new books on Rails.

    I’m a big fan of O’Reilly, there are stacks of books published by them lying around here. But come on, no other advocates of Open Source, Linux, Apache and friends?

    1. Apple
    2. Slashdot
    3. Ars
    4. Linux Journal
    5. Artima Developer
    6. Sourceforge
    7. Mozilla
    8. W3C
