Intel "Back in January Intel had pushed out its first alpha release for Moblin V2. This Intel-optimized Linux distribution targeting systems with Intel Atom hardware was quite unique and offered a number of advantages for being a netbook-oriented operating system. Particularly special about Intel Moblin V2 was its boot-time, which was extremely fast when using a Solid-State Drive. Intel has now put out a second alpha release for Moblin V2, which we are briefly exploring today."

Quotation marks. As you can see, the item is in quotation marks indicating it wasn't written by us. We have been doing it like this since the dawn of time.

Quoting and linking are not the same thing as attribution especially when the link does not appear in RSS feeds. What you're doing is obviously fair use, but its also lazy.

Here is how slashdot does it:
http://slashdot.org/search.pl?query=phoronix
"Phoronix did...", "Phoronix writes...", etc.

digg explicitly writes the source site's name immediately preceding the quoted text.

We are not going to write "Blah blah wrote" in every item. We have specifically chosen not to to keep OSNews a little more fun to read and to stay away from monotony. We are not Digg, and we are not Slashdot.

This is the internet. Attribution is in the link.

Here's more of that cocky attitude; it seems that in that aspect, slashdot is not that far. Well, we might have loads of fun skipping the explicit attribution, but the quotes are not clear enough as a substitute.

My eee pc 1000 with the rt2860 worked with WPA2. However, my broadband card doesn't show up, but I think that is a problem with wicd? Anyway, it is still alpha and boots fast. Back to jaunty for now, it runs nice on the eee pc 1000.
