Once or twice a year I look at FOSS video editing tools to see if they're ready for everyday use by advanced amateur and low-end professional video makers, which is where I classify myself in the video production hierarchy.
Last week I had the opportunity to try two new operating systems: Microsoft Vista (Home Premium) and the Ubuntu Linux distribution (6.10, Edgy Eft).
Amazon.com is the most popular online retailer. While you can, of course, access the site with any browser, developer Fabio Serra has created Mozilla Amazon Browser (MAB), a browser-based application that relies on Mozilla's XML User Interface Language (XUL) technology to implement its graphical user interface.
I’m more secure on Linux than I am on Windows. My primary desktop is on a Macbook Pro – the best computer I’ve ever owned, without any doubt. I consider myself very open-minded and will always give credit where it’s due. Heck, some of my best friends use Windows.
In 2002 the Mozilla Foundation released Mozilla 1.0, finally delivering on the promise of an open-source browser descended from the original Netscape Navigator browser code.
But while Mozilla 1.0 received many kudos from reviewers (including eWEEK Labs), it failed to make much of a dent in the 96 percent market share that Microsoft's Internet Explorer enjoyed at the time.
Penguin Pete celebrates his site's first birthday today. We congratulate him on a most excellent site. His articles are funny, intelligent, informative, gramatically correct, and sometimes controversial. I enjoy Penguin Pete's site, frequently link to it, and hope it will be around for a long time to come.
In an article on his site today he discusses the first year and his top stories:
Could Linux be the nearly perfect solution to the computing ills in China? Well, a little yes, and lots of no.
Lord knows I appreciate all the 'news submissions' I can get. In fact, I've often thought of asking around for a 'Number One' to help me run the site in that area. But I have a few notes for those submitting, especially if you've noticed your submission not published.
Written in Java and released under the GPL, iDART (intelligent Dispensing of Antiretroviral Treatment) is a pharmacy system designed for use at antiretroviral (ARV) pharmacies in the public health sector. Initially distributed only as software, it was generally implemented on machines using Windows.
Recently, we described how to copy LPs, 45s and 78s to CD using the new Crosley Songwriter CD Recorder. It's an easy-to-use, $400 nostalgia-theme piece that does the job without a computer, but the hefty price is hard to ignore. But what about the computer-savvy person who doesn't have a turntable? Or the turntable owner who doesn't want to buy the Songwriter just to turn vinyl into CD?
The Science And Engineering Of The Common Good - The Importance Of Free Open Standards For A Healthy Evolution Of The Web: Tim Berners-Lee reports to the United States House of Representatives.
My baby is turning 1. It's time to get her a laptop.
This is pretty self-evident to me, but not to the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recommends "no screen time" for children under 2 and at most 1 or 2 hours daily for kids.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Fedora Core 6 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
If you run KDE, you aren't just stuck with the standard "kicker" panel to operate as your app launcher and taskbar. There are a bunch of nice panel replacements that will spice up your desktop nicely. The ones that I've used and tested are kooldock, kxdocker and the nkotb kiba-dock (NB. the only place with anything useful on that site is the forum).
phpSysInfo is a customizable PHP script that parses various files in /proc and displays them. It will display information about system facts like Uptime, CPU, Memory, SCSI, IDE, PCI, Ethernet, Floppy, and Video. It now has full internationalization support along with customizable templates.
Web server (apache2) with php4 or later support
sbackup is a backup program emerging from a Summer of Code project. It was dedicated to tightly integrate with Ubuntu but can also run on other platforms. In contrast to often used backup services like Amanda sbackup focuses on the user of the machine.
A test install of Opera 9.10 to see if all is well on the Opera/Ubuntu Feisty compatibility front. In this story flashplugin-nonfree, sun-java6-plugin and sun-java6-jre are installed, all available in the repositories of Ubuntu Feisty (universe multiverse).
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree, sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-jre
This distribution is about more than creating another version of Linux. It has a strong political and philosophical impetus behind it. I will let their website explain it:
dyne:bolic is RASTA software released free under the GNU General Public License.
Ubuntu announced the release of 5.10 almost 18 months ago, on October 13th. As with the earlier releases, Ubuntu committed to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months. The support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 5.10 will reach end of life on Friday April 13th 2007.
While Red Hat, like many other operating system and more complete software stack providers, wants to pitch the latest release of its software as a major change in packaging that will broaden the appeal of its products, the fact remains that for many customers, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is a new and substantially improved operating system that will be sold on its own merits of features, performanc
