Here are a few good websites: Slashdot is a great resourse for science / technology news, and also a great time waster! Gentoo is an awesome distribution of Linux and my personal favorite. It's most likely not a good distro for beginners, but for experienced Linux users it gives great control over your system. Mandrake is also a nice distribution of Linux. If you are interested in Linux (and you should be) this is a great starting point. The GNU homepage. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) homepage. Become a member today!
