Dell says, ". . . we have seen a consistent request to provide platforms that allow people to install their operating system of choice." (Emphasis added.)
Also: Can Dell change the Linux market?
And: Dell takes small steps toward Linux
Everybody has their "favourite" operating system. That's fine, in fact that's good. Everybody should have an operating system to champion. What is not good is when we allow our beliefs to blind us to the real facts of our chosen package of ones and zeros.
Open Source is my programming; I shall not hide.
He maketh me to lie down in fast hard drives: he leadeth me beside the CPU bus.
He restoreth my source code...
Recently, I upgraded my cell phone to a Motorola RAZR v3 from T-Mobile, a Bluetooth-enabled device. I wanted to copy files to this device using my Laptop running Debian testing (Etch) using command line tools. I found what I needed in a package of Bluetooth tools and daemons called BlueZ.
Alright, I’m going to say this. I think Microsoft should acquire Linux. If Microsoft acquires the distributions and in essence, controls much of the Linux market, Microsoft wouldn’t need to sabotage such a rapidly growing market.
The notional value of Europe’s investment in free/libre or open source software today is €22bn, representing 20.5pc of the region’s total software investment, a senior UN researcher will tell an intelligence briefing on open source in Dublin later this week.
OTRS is a trouble ticket system with many features to manage customer telephone calls and e-mails. The system is built to allow your support, sales, pre-sales, billing, internal IT, helpdesk, etc. department to react quickly to inbound inquiries. This guide is specifically intended to help install and run OTRS.
I don't think 2006 produced as many great motion pictures as in some years passed, however there were a few. None of my favorites were nominated and in fact, I hadn't even seen too many of the movies that were. So, it was with less enthusiasm than usual that I watched this year's Academy Awards ceremony.
This time around we are looking at the Abit AB9 motherboard, which is a P965 + ICH8 solution that offers Abit's uGuru, OC Guru, BlackBox, SoftMenu, and their well-known Silent OTES technology. The ATX motherboard is Intel Quad Core Ready, but can the Abit AB9 perform as well as the NF-M2 nView when running Linux?
Most often small moving things show that a big change is happening. Such small things can be seen in the weekly Commit Digest. Commit Digest issue 47 was released today and as usual features very interesting news.
I teach high school computer science and programming, and I'm trying to transition my computer lab from MS-Windows only to MS-Windows/Linux dual boot. We have been using the Crimson Text Editor under Microsoft Windows to enter/edit the Ruby source code. I started wondering if I could configure the KDE Advanced Text Editor (KATE) under Linux to do the same thing with Ruby scripts? Could I do this?
The Ubuntu GNU/Linux project is not a charity. Rather, founder Mark Shuttleworth says his aim is to build a distribution "which is freely available, showcases the best of free software and is sustainable in its own right." While Shuttleworth will keep funding Ubuntu until it reaches sustainability, he wants the project to reach a point where it does not depend on either him or any other person to pour in money.
The following explorations in illumination effects have been based on Faber Birren's ground-breaking research in color theory. Birren summarized some of his findings in a book called Color Perception in Art that was an instant success among artists and designers all over the world.
As I showed there is a strong need for solving the current problem of installing software on Linux. The first, maybe for a Linux newbie most obvious solution is the one which is most unlikely to happen: that all major distributions suddenly turn to one package manager. Also, I doubt that most of all users suddenly turn to a specific distribution, which would also effectively solve the problem.
The thought of having your parents go onto the computer by themselves could be a daunting task since they might not know what they are doing. They are a great target of viruses, spyware and other harmful annoyances that they can fall for because they are not gurus. This article will go into why giving a parent, or relative or any novice user a Windows PC is going to give you a lot of headaches or ulcers.
The Free Software Foundation Europe has created a resource designed to assist FOSS projects with copyright and licensing. Shane Coughlan heads this project and agreed to answer our questions. The interview was conducted by e-mail on February 23rd. Mr. Coughlan was speaking at FOSDEM in Brussels today [February 24th]. We would like to thank him for responding to our questions.
One side project I’ve been having fun with is creating an activity to allow the olpc to play music. At first I was just going to port a MusicPD (mpd) client over to olpc to allow me to use the laptop as a remote control at parties. Mpd runs as a system-level service that plays music, and then users can connect to it with many dozens of available clients to tell it to play music.
No question - if you compare yum performance to for example apt performance (both is possible on Fedora, btw.) you quickly realize that yum is much slower. On the other hand, yum has some very nifty advantages like plugins so you might not care.
