The recently formed OpenDocument Format Alliance is expressing its confidence that the file format will be approved by the International Organisation for Standardisation next month.
AMD apparently wants to set up a research group in Dresden not only to optimize Linux for its own processors, but also to integrate the requirements of the open operating system in the development process for future processor generations.
You might know how to write code or build applications, but do you know what is required of a good Linux sysadmin? Linux system administration has a place of its own in the hierarchy of information technology specializations. Some people excel in special areas of free software technology but haven't needed to learn system administration.
Once upon a time, some believed Corel could compete with Microsoft to bring life to a new generation of personal computers. That was about 25 years ago, and it's hard to imagine that whatever Corel cooks up now makes Bill Gates nervous.
We can see from last week's story on Sun Microsystems DReaM DRM that it is rapidly honing in on a future open source DRM market, with a completely new vision of how DRM should work, and it's running at least six months ahead of schedule by our reckoning.

Tuxmachines took their alpha release for a livecd test drive and is here to report the findings.
If the slow booting time of your Linux box is driving you crazy, consider parallel booting technique. What kind of improvements might you see, compared to your current sequential boot process?
In Unix-like systems, a daemon is a process that runs in the background, usually providing some kind of service. To create a daemon quickly, you can throw one together using the Bourne Again Shell (Bash) scripting language.
Over the last few years, we've seen and heard some pretty visceral reactions from the Linux community to Microsoft-funded reports about Linux. Rightfully so - some of the "facts" in Microsoft's "Get the Facts" campaign have been outright false and most have been misleading at the very least.
This is one really, really cool and solid distribution. OK, before I go any further I should point out that SUSE 10.1 (code name: Agama Lizard) isn't actually released yet. I've been kicking the tires of the first SUSE 10.1 "Release Candidate."
