The City of Munich's LiMux project center is rejecting charges by the Senate administration of Berlin that the migration to free software has gotten stuck before it ever got going. As Project director Peter Hofmann told heise online, "Open Source software at the workplace is a reality in Munich."
Maybe not yet, but it's a good start. Bonfire 0.3.90 is "just another CD/DVD burn application for the GNOME desktop." To me however, it doesn't look like "just another one", since it was designed with the ease of use in mind.
It was once very fashionable in Linux distros to alias rm to "rm -i". I don't see that as often as I used to, which surprises me: it can only mean that everyone else hates that as much as I do.
Microsoft was out in force at an open source conference in London this week, but many delegates were unwilling to talk about its motives
There are plenty of reference applications available for Linux, but the ultimate Linux lexicon has to be WordNet, a powerful desktop dictionary. Words are ordered hyponymically; that is, they're grouped and sorted in a hierarchy based on their meanings.
I've been a happy MythTV user for a long time, but lately I've been feeling that something is missing. MythTV offers no easy way to listen to music from various sources. After fiddling with custom solutions based on MPD and MPlayer, I decided to look for an alternative -- which led me to Freevo.
The logical volume manager allows you to create and manage the storage of your servers in a very useful manner; adding, removing, and resizing partitions on demand. Getting started with LVM can be a little confusing to newcomer so this guide intends to show the basics in a simple manner.
A lot of people want to know if it is possible to build an enterprise grade open source VoIP solution and if there are any benefits to it. George Ou sheds some light on the question.
Karen Copenhaver, a partner at law firm Choate, Hall & Stewart, tells a story about running a seminar for a large company. The goal of the seminar was to make it clear that software developers had a responsibility to abide by their company’s guidelines surrounding the use of open-source, free and other third-party code.
Software company FireStar has filed suit against open source seller Red Hat, alleging patent infringement. Red Hat recently purched JBoss maker of the specific accused product Hibernate 3.0.
Do you like Ubuntu? Do you like KDE? Would you like to have them both in one distribution, but with more than Kubuntu can give you? If that's you, then SimplyMEPIS 6.2 is your operating system.
Sun was quick to deny published reports today that it plans to open source Java in the next few months. The company is working on the project, but any transition to open source is closer to a year away.
Linspire, Inc. along with AOpen and Mirus Innovations, today announced the availability of the Linspire Mini Koobox, the first small form-factor Linux machine on the market.
Still pursuing its objective of offering an accessible, affordable and ever faster Linux distribution to everyone, Mandriva is putting the final touches on its brand new distro: Mandriva Linux 2007, available fall 2006.
As I'm sure you read, Novell offered a test drive of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 release candidate 3 (announcement). As my interest in all things SUSE never wanes, I downloaded the 5 cds right away. They came in rather quickly, although I overlooked the md5sum file. Upon returning today for said file, it appears they've begun to require registration to download the preview. I'm not sure why they now want this information, but I suspect they see these testers as possible future customers. They didn't lose out on me as I have no intention of buying. Not that it's not worth it to the right people, I'd just go for the opensuse version myself. However, to the new office setup or businesses wanting to change, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 may be just what the IT doctor ordered.

I was just told a good-news story about a Toronto area high school computer science teacher who has been using the Linux operating system exclusively in his classroom for the past 5 years. The bad-news part of the story is that the school recently dismantled the already running Linux lab and told the teacher that he *must* only teach Microsoft software.
Yes, I know you're sick of hearing about Ubuntu. Ubuntu this, Ubuntu that, everyone must love Ubuntu or else. Don't run away screaming just yet, because there are good reasons for all the Ubuntu buzz.
Question: Just how many PCs do you use during any given day? More importantly, do you struggle with keeping a handle on which files are up to date and where? If you work on your PC outside of the hobbyist world, then chances are you are in the "resounding yes" category with the rest of us - welcome to the club.
I had heard about the latest Gartner report claiming that Microsoft Windows will become the dominant platform for "Open Source" (and free) software in the future. While there are certainly a number of reasons why some FOSS has and will continue to be written that also runs under Microsoft Windows, I think the fundamental premise is wrong.
