Jono Bacon: Kick arse. Kick arse. Those are the only ways to describe the Ubuntu Developer Summit. Here we are in Seville having a blast and getting some really productive work done. I have actually been here since Wednesday for the Ubuntu Education Summit and the Ubucon, and everything has been running smoothly.
ZDNet Education: Well, sooner or later, it was bound to happen. We are in the process of retiring our last two instructional UNIX/Linux labs. And guess what? Nobody seems to care!
kernelTRAP: Jörn Engel announced LogFS, "a scalable flash filesystem." The project's home page notes that LogFS aims to be the successor of JFFS2, "the two main problems of JFFS2 are memory consumption and mount time. Unlike most filesystems, there is no tree structure of any sorts on the medium."
FOSSwire: Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS systems (and possibly more distributions too) ship with a tool called Logwatch. Logwatch is absolutely invaluable if you’re running a server of any kind as it allows you to stay up-to-date with what’s going on inside your system.
Dana Blankenhorn: The straw man in this case is the Microsoft-led argument that using Linux carries patent risks. It doesn't. But signing on to the idea that it might is like my running bet that I'll die next year. It's insurance.
Seeking Alpha: When Red Hat kicks off its annual customer conference today in San Diego, I will be watching closely. The company faces at least seven key challenges--and opportunities--as it tries to remain the open source industry's most successful company. Here's the rundown.
Phoronix: SLAX is one of our favorite Linux distributions so when SLAX 6.0 RC3 was released you can be sure that had caught our attention. New in SLAX 6.0.0 RC3 is the Linux 220.127.116.11 kernel, full NTFS write support, and upgrades to Slackware current.
Linux.com: Although OpenOffice.org doesn't allow you to create self-running Impress presentations, there is a tool that can help you with that. Using IndeView, you can convert your Impress presentations into a self-contained package that can run off a CD or DVD on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
internetnews.com: Red Hat Exchange (RHX) was a part of the hoopla surrounding Red Hat's release of its next-generation Linux platform. The Exchange, which is expected to formally be launched on May 10 at the Red Hat Summit, is an effort to make it easier for end users to get a myriad of third-party vendors' applications directly from Red Hat.
techbookreport: For a beginner contemplating switching to Linux there are a bewildering number of flavours to choose from. For those coming from the world of Windows, this wide range of Linux distributions presents a real dilemma. In that kind of situation, Ubuntu Linux should be high on the list of candidates.
Linux-gamers: Some recent news just reached us from the doom3 LMS project: As always there are a lot of exciting things going on at Last Man Standing Co-op! We are moving forward to the 4.0 release and we have a lot of neat goodies for you.
BBC: A version of the increasingly popular Linux operating system Ubuntu will be developed for use on net-enabled phones and devices. The Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded project aims to create the open source platform for initial release in October 2007.
With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. This tutorial shows people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop.
bmc blogs: An old friend here at the office was working late, and I was there working on IT360/Linuxworld. He dropped by my designated work area, and we got to talking about Linux. He was asking (in essence) why I like Linux. The reason he was asking was that he had tried to install SUSE as his first Linux.
ITtoolbox blogs: In this series I am going to be travelling around the /etc directory on a linux installation and explaining what some of those cryptically named files do. In these cases I will be using Kubuntu/Ubuntu as an example but the files I will explain will generally be present in all distributions. The first file I will cover is the "inittab" file.
the jerusalem post: While Linux is an alternative to Windows, it is not cheap Windows. Linux has its own strengths, and users should want it because of those strengths and not because it's a cheap copy of Windows."
Free Software Mag: When considering moving a Small to Mid-size Business (SMB) client over to GNU/Linux or talking to someone who is considering the same, there frequently is a “but” somewhere during the process. The hesitation is one that is rarely talked about, or one that I have rarely heard; the lack of specialized applications from Independent Software Vendors.
internetnews.com: Sun Microsystems today will announce it's released a fully buildable Java Development Kit (JDK) for Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE) under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2. Sun is planning a formal announcement today at its JavaOne conference in San Francisco.
eWeek: Ubuntu 7.04—also known as Feisty Fawn—shines for its excellent software management tools and large catalog of ready-to-install free software applications.
