A careful examination of Microsoft’s Patent Pledge for Non-Compensated Developers reveals that it has little value. The patent covenant only applies to software that you develop at home and keep for yourself; the promises don’t extend to others when you distribute. You cannot pass the rights to your downstream recipients, even to the maintainers of larger projects on which your contribution is built.
Mono is an open-source project providing the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix. Monodevelop is probably the best IDE for developing .NET applications on Linux. In order to install and use it for development, you will also need the Mono .NET runtime environment installed.
After my success upgrading from Ubuntu 6.06 to Edgy 6.10 I decided to reformat my hard drive and try doing a clean install. The whole install process went very smoothly and was an improvement over the Ubuntu 6.06 install.
Most bloggers use a browser to log in and post new entries. The Drivel Journal Editor is designed for those who consider using a browser too tedious when making new blog entries. Designed for GNOME, Drivel can work with Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType, WordPress, and other popular journaling tools. Despite an elegant yet simple interface, Drivel packs in some very useful features, such as an integrated spellcheker, HTML syntax highlighting, and the ability to edit and update past entries.
Well, the UDS finishes up tomorrow, and lots has been going on. The spec about unifying resources with Launchpad was very productive, and there was some discussion of it being rolled out for planets and user maps.
Nothing happened this week. Sorry.
But that never stopped me before, so...
Look at it this way for a moment: If I, as an end-user, bought a car from Ford, that does indeed contain technology infringing some patent owned by DaimlerChrysler -- would there by any likelyhood that Ford would sue me, the end-user? However, if I, as an end-user, buy a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, that *may* contain (well, it doesn't, and never will, as Novell strongly reassures me) software patented technology owned by Microsoft -- would there be any likelyhood that Microsoft would sue me, the end-user?
Sometime you need to track down offenders who are trying to attack against your services such as routers, mail, web server etc. In some cases you just wanted to find out who is sending traffic or hot linking your images etc.
Abit's AW8 and AW8-MAX were exceptionally well-designed i955X motherboards, and Abit's latest attempt at a high-performance Intel LGA-775 solution is the AW9D series. We have the Abit AW9D on our test bench, which is backed by Intel's flagship 975X processor and boasts an arsenal of innovative features. But how does this product perform under GNU/Linux? We have all of the performance metrics to share today.
Open-source software vendors are prodding Congress to define some legal standards to support the development and deployment of such software.
The verdict is in: The GPL, by driving license costs to zero, is not a violation of US antitrust (e.g., price fixing) law. Whew! I was worried for a minute there.
Since SCO filed its lawsuit against IBM several years ago, a number of vendors have stepped forward to indemnify their customers from suit if the customer becomes embroiled in any litigation involving open source software that the vendor distributed.
As a fiction or novel writer, are you searching for a writing tool to help you harness your creativity and get down to efficiently developing your plot? You might have a cast of characters and need to incorporate several different sub-plots. Maybe you think in a non-linear fashion and need to get your million dollar manuscript done sometime this next... oh, I don't know... decade.
Perhaps you are a Linux user, too.
Set up a Kerberized environment to work with Solaris(TM) 10 and learn how to configure a Key Distribution Center (KDC) on AIX(R) Version 5.3. You'll also run through a series of steps for configuring a Kerberos client on Solaris 10 to authenticate users for Telnet, remote shell (rsh), and Secure Shell (SSH) using AIX Version 5.3 as your KDC.
If you want to Configure grub and usplash using Simple GUI Interface here is the tool called Startup Manager. This is a simple pyton script.
Professional video gamer Tom Taylor, aka Tsquared, is the envy of every young video game player but he wants to debunk the myth that wielding a joystick for a living is all fun and games.
Red Hat has a friend after all. The Linux maker this week announced a bundling exercise with server virtualization specialist VMware. The companies' deal will see them pair Red Hat's version of the Linux operating system with VMware's flagship server slicing product.

Entrepreneurs attending a forum in Germany this week showed how they plan to use clever open-source products—commercially—to compete with proprietary software companies.
Fedora Core 6, codenamed Zod, was released on October 24 for x86, PowerPC, and AMD64 systems. With a number of improvements over its predecessors, this is an impressive release, if you're willing to overlook a couple of installer bugs.
Last week Novell and Microsoft announced a cooperation. I'd like to write a bit about what the announcement means especially for openSUSE. The business cooperation does not directly affect us at openSUSE at all.
