In today's news Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat CEO, shares words of wisdom with graduates of the Campbell University Law School. Enlightenment is examined in all its incarnations. And Linus Torvalds posts a new video to encourage folks to sign up for Introduction to Linux.

Jim Whitehurst gave the commencement address to this year's graduates at top ranked Campbell University Law School in Buies Creek, NC last week. Whitehurst spoke to what it takes to be "an exceptional leader." He says leaders have to inspire, engage, and just be themselves. See a full transcript at WRAL TechWire.

Enlightenment gets the Germain treatment today as readers are instructed on what Enlightenment is, what it does, and how to get it. Germain says it's different than any other desktop out there and that its functionality could change your very approach to using Linux. He says you can get it in most distributions alongside other popular desktops or you can get packages to compile on any distro. But easiest of all is the distribution featuring Enlightenment as their main or only desktop. See the rest of that story to "become enlightened."

Linux founder Linus Torvalds posted a new video at the Linux Foundation to encourage users to get their Introduction to Linux. He shares what Linux has meant and has become to him and others and says, "Everybody has something they can give to the project." See that full video at Linux.com.
