When i google for linux.com theora, and click on an article in
the linux.com domain, I find links to ogg theora streams that
play correctly in Firefox.  So they haven't removed the videos.

Browsing to http://linux.com shows a page announcing that
linuxfoundation.org has taken over the linux.com domain.
Clicking on "Video" on this page, and the video page hasn't
opened yet; it's probably being slashdotted or something.
So I can't verify whether the ogg streams are present. .
