Novell is developing an open source implementation of Microsoft’s identity card technology that is functionally equivalent to the Windows software but will run on both Linux and Macintosh.
Oh, my. On the one hand, Mary Jo is reporting that, just as Novell's Bruce Lowry had said, Novell's pact with Microsoft seems to be earning it back market share against Red Hat.http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/14679/edit
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Red Hat should be flattered. Less than two weeks after the company introduced RHEL 5 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5), StartCom Ltd. released the first RHEL 5 clone, StartCom Enterprise Linux AS-5.0.0.
Earlier this month, Slashdot posted a piece asking whether the Gentoo project is in "crisis." The project has responded to the issues discussed in the posting, in part, by adopting a Code of Conduct (CoC), with "proctors" who will address breaches of the CoC. So far, that move seems of limited worth.
The open source Emacs editor (one of the powerhouses of UNIX computing) is a large, complex application that does everything from editing text to functioning as a complete development environment.
n my previous post I explained how I set up my new server as a Xen server in order to maximize my flexibility. It's been little over a week now and I am saddened to say that Xen has gone out the Window. While I love the flexibility, it's just not ready for me yet.
Snag 1: Running NFS
Chris Guirl sent me a note this weekend alerting me to the release of VDrift 2007-03-23 and letting me know that this drift racing game now supports benchmarking.
Even though interest in server-side Linux has been steadily growing in enterprises and organizations around the world, desktop and laptop-based Linux solutions have faced a steady series of uphill climbs.
Lately, I have watched various companies make marketing blunders on a near everyday basis. Some in the general media, others in niche arenas, where most people will never see just how huge of a mistake was actually made. But all of them aside, Novell has had the pleasure of topping them all and solidifying fears that many Linux users share, with one single statement.
There’s a discussion going on on my LUG mailing list today which seems to have diverged from its original topic to the question of the inclusion of officially supported non-free repositories in distributions: is this merely facilitating freedom or does it have more sinister implications for free software?
NERO WAS SHOWING two things at CeBIT, one was a great thing, the other potentially interesting. One requires hardware, the other doesn't require Windows.
One of the nicer things of Linux is that you have tons of thinkerers around. One of my online buddies who goes by the nick of Tripl showed this solution to change the default look of Wine (simply horrible) into the human theme of Ubuntu.
All the text bellow needs to be pasted bellow the line above in ~/.wine/user.reg that is your home directory .wine folder
Socat, netcat's "twin brother," is a utility that "establishes two bidirectional byte streams and transfers data between them." It handles sockets in various ways, allowing a wide range of actions, including file transfers, port forwarding, and serial line emulation.
I wanted to access the internet over bluetooth instead of GPRS/3G network from my mobile phone (SE K800i). After a lot of searching I couldn't find a clear explanation as how to accomplish this. I did manage to set it up with Windows XP, using the "Personal Area Network" in the bluetooth utility and doing internet connection sharing.
After all these years, I still remember the sounds and primary colours associated with the climatic lightcycle scene in the 1982 Walt Disney film TRON. As the noise-ridden cycles raced to certain destruction, synthetic electronic reverberations could be felt throughout the whole audience and my bones at the cinema.
Canonical Ltd, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, today announced it has scooped another award for Ubuntu, its leading-edge Linux distribution. At the PC Welt awards dinner held during the CeBIT Exhibition in Hanover, on Friday 16th March, Ubuntu was awarded the "Editor's Choice Award for Open Source."
The year 2007 might be remembered as the year when Linux corporate desktops stood up to Windows Vista. Hewlett-Packard recently announced it is making large deals with Linux desktops and that these orders might be a signal of an important shift in the market.
The Debian GNU/Linux project has come to some kind of crossroads - due to many factors, some of them artificial - and the man who takes over leadership next month will have to make some crucial decisions on the future direction of the project.
Voting is in progress for the next leader who will take over on April 17. Eight candidates are in the running, including the incumbent, Anthony Towns.
Q: I just tried Windows Vista and was soooo impressed that now I'd like to try out Linux. What is the best way to dip my toes into the Linux pond?
A: Wow. I'm sure that wasn't the effect that Microsoft was going for; however I can't say that I'm surprised.
