Using Munin you can easily monitor the performance of your computers, networks, SANs, and quite possibly applications as well.
Have you ever had to determine the virtual terminal that an X session is running on? Perhaps you may want this information for a program you have created.
For home users, free open-source software is the way to go.
This week we'll talk about Nvu (http://www.nvu.com), a free Web page editor that runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. It is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor - you don't have to write lines and lines of obscure code to create a Web page, even if it does help to understand raw HTML to get through some rough spots.
A bootable disk with Knoppix can be a lifesaver when your computer goes awry. In this feature, we guide you through the process of fixing Linux with Knoppix, which includes repairing boot issues, working with key system files, and working with Linux partitions.
Elive 0.4: "Serenity", featuring both Enlightenment 16 and 17, was released yesterday. "This version is a stabilization of 0.3, a better release with all bad things fixed, but also with many of new features; new installer, with more file systems supported and a cleaner installation." We tested last week's pre-4 and were disappointed in an inoperative harddrive installer. Did we have any better luck with the distribution release?
Mozilla Corp.'s lead engineer isn't worried about Microsoft's upcoming Internet Explorer 7, but instead is focusing on getting the next version of Firefox out the door.
Built on the shoulders of giants, GNOME 2.14 hits the shelves on the 15th of March. As well as new features and more polish, developers have been working around the clock to squeeze more performance out of the most commonly used applications and libraries.

A survey of Silicon Valley's chief executives found 14 percent more said their companies added employees in 2005 compared with the previous year, and they're even more optimistic about hiring in the coming year.

The Bourne Again Shell and TC Shell are command interpreters and high-level programming languages. As command interpreters, they process commands you enter on the command line in response to a prompt. This chapter focuses primarily on the Bourne Again Shell, while noting where it differs from the TC Shell.
You can't plan on going to a community show and then an enterprise show and expect a lot of similarities. That said, despite all of the differences, I found quite a few more things in common than I expected.
The founder of the Debian Linux project and of a company called Progeny to commercialize it has taken a new job trying to standardize elements of the open-source operating system.
I have a Microprocessor in my system that can easily handle over 120 million instructions per second. If you like to get real geeky with me, consider this. The Intel processor I'm using is able to calculate the SuperPI number crunching benchmark to one million digits in about 100 seconds. It takes my Pentium 4 system less than two minutes to figure out this benchmark, and the Pentium 4 is notoriously bad at FPU calculations. On a bad day, this beautiful system can do some very serious powered thinking, and at speeds that even ten years ago NASA didn't have in their control rooms.
