I love technology, but I'm fanatical about only a few things high-tech. Firefox is one of them. The Web browser has always been an underdog to Microsoft's market-dominant Internet Explorer, but Firefox is vastly superior in features and usability. That's why it's my fave browser.

Messing up your hard disk's partition table doesn't take much effort, especially when you're preparing a dual-boot machine. Even a mistimed fdisk /mbr can spell disaster, erasing the master boot record (MBR) and making the disk unusable. But victims of damaged MBRs rejoice -- gpart can save your day. This utility scans a hard disk and prepares a partition table of areas that resemble a partition, which you can use to make the disk bootable again.

PCLinuxOS is a bit of an unknown quantity to me.

About 3 months ago I had installed SuSe 10.1 on my computer and was thrilled about it but I always had a passion for trying something new and exciting. I always heard about Gentoo Linux that it was “the bomb.” More than half the time using the computer was spent installing this and that. I was fed up whit it so i installed SuSe 10.1 again.
First of all, I’m not Guru. I used to be a Windows user, but now I’m a Linux fan. I’ve been using Linux for quite some time now. I don’t play with the kernel or do any serious system administration stuff; I chiefly use Linux for web development and other “normal stuff” (internet, music, video, graphics etc). I’ve been using Linux for around four years, and I’ve never stuck to either KDE or GNOME.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how you can convert .rpm packages to .deb packages with a tool called alien so that you can easily install them on Debian and Ubuntu systems. Sometimes this is quite convenient as not all software projects release their software as Debian/Ubuntu packages.

For many computer users, it sounds like a nightmare - being forced to enter cryptic commands into the computer using the keyboard. Yet, it need not be such a horror show.
On the eve of the OracleWorld user conference, market watchers are divided on whether Oracle intends to make an announcement concerning its Linux plans. However, I believe it's a fair bet that Oracle is working on incorporating Ubuntu Linux into its own product.

Seeing that the development of the ext3 file system successor has started, and that Andrew Morton has released mm patch containing ext4 file system, I decided to run some simple benchmarks, even in this early stage of development. Because the mm patch also contains Hans Reiser's reiser4 file system, I decided to run benchmarks against it, too, for a good measure.

Yesterday I attended a meeting hosted by TACD at Harvard's Berkman Center about a very important issue -- one that is both highly technical and political at the same time -- the battle over the Open Document Format (ODF).
