The highly successful Ubuntu development team released a release candidate of their upcoming version 6.06 desktop operating system. We haven't tested Ubuntu quite a while and thought it'd be interesting to see how things have changed. We also thought it'd might be of interest to others to see how this release was shaping up.

Practically Networked invites to join our new series on how to build your own Linux-based network appliance. If you're a small business owner with a shared Internet connection and some networked PCs, this is just what you need to secure your LAN with a powerful, flexible device that outperforms comparable commercial devices for a fraction of the cost, or even no cost at all.
IBM will tripling the middleware offerings (including WebSphere, Rational, Tivoli, and Lotus) available for HP-UX so that they span the systems vendor's entire portfolio. In other news Linux servers grew 17 percent and now account for 12.2 percent of all server revenue. Linux is found to be much faster than Apple's OS X for statistical computing.
It's always fun when the future sneaks up on you, and in the last few months that's exactly what's happened in the land of X. Hackers at Novell crawled into a deep, dark basement and spent months hacking away in secret before emerging in January, eyes blinking from the light, with a still experimental but surprisingly usable OpenGL-based X server called Xgl.
At some point we all need to get into our Linux system, and ensure that key processes are started correctly at boot-up. This very brief guide will show you how to find and start your system processes also called services by using the cron process as an example.
My name is Henry the Adequate, and I am a superhero. Felinn asks â€œIn python, how do you call functions? Also, is there an ni function?
As promised, I took my own advice and started playing around with some of the improved kernel modules that I wrote about in a previous article. My kernel module of choice for this exercise was grsecurity. After searching around for a Linux distribution that was built on the most recent kernel, I settled on the latest Rubix distribution.
The cpio command is one of the most commonly used Linux back up tools. Unlike tar , in which the files to back up are typed in as part of the command, cpio reads the files to work with from the standard input (in other words, the screen).

Oracle continues to dominate the database software market but challenges lie ahead from open source, analysts say. The biggest threat to Oracle's dominance of the market could be open source competitors such as MySQL, analysts said.
What the hell, scoops are over-rated anyway. News is news. In this case, news that Google has released Picasa, its photo editing and organizing software, on Linux. That's before they release it on Apple (if they ever do). I believe this is a first.
As the world of software consolidates and open-source programs become more popular, some observers think MySQL is the company most likely to be acquired by a software giant.
Open Source is changing the way that Gartner Group measures the application development market. The big loser as a result may well be proprietary Java application development tools.
First off, what is NDISwrapper? Shockingly enough, it's a wrapper for the NDIS layer of Windows. In plain English, it means you can use Windows XP drivers inside Linux to power your WIFI card. Very cool.
Yes, Adobe is actively working on the Linux version of Flash Player 9. We expect to make a pre-release version available on Adobe Labs for early feedback and testing before the end of the year, with the full release expected in early 2007*.

One of my blog readers reports that, when he migrated his organization to OpenOffice.org, he didn't even tell the users that they were switching to a different office suite. He just said that there was going to be a big upgrade. Then, he and his migration cohorts modified the OpenOffice.org menus and toolbars to resemble the Microsoft Office layout and phrasing as much as possible (without violating copyright, of course) and gave that configured version to the users. He reports very few problems with the migration.
