If you’re like me, then you’ve got a dual boot machine running both Windows and Ubuntu. heck, even if you’re not like me it’s entirely possible that you’ll have a dual boot machine. I’ll even allow for a triple boot machine if you like.

Novell recently launched version 10 of SUSE Linux Desktop. eWorld caught up with Revathi Kasturi, managing director, West Asia SUSE Linux, to check out the level of activity amongst users of open source software. Excerpts from the conversation:
After I wrote a bit about AIGLX and new NVIDIAS drivers I realized that it is not entirely clear what will happen with KDE in this case. But there are some news in this field at least: in this weeks commit digest there were some changes listed which make KDE able to use compiz as a window manager officially

Gaël Duval, the founder of the popular MandrakeLinux (later MandrivaLinux) project, was fired (http://www.indidea.org/gael/en/fired-message.php) from Mandriva last spring in an effort to cut costs. Almost immediately afterward, Duval began work on a new GNU/Linux distribution, Ulteo (http://www.ulteo.com/main/). As of this writing, Ulteo has not yet released its first beta edition, but it should be available soon. While we're all waiting, I figured I'd ask Mr. Duval some questions about Ulteo, Mandriva, and starting GNU/Linux projects in general.
Zenwalk is a relatively uncommon distribution, with Ubuntu and Fedora appearing far more often in the news. However, its popularity seems to have steadily risen, accompanied by an extremely short distance between releases. While this means that new releases tend to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary, it helps them to constantly move forward. So, just how far has Zenwalk moved in the time between Zenwalk 2.6 and Zenwalk 3.0?

In a landmark victory for the GPL license, a civil court in Germany has ruled against D-Link Germany GmbH for violating the terms of the most popular free software license. The lawsuit was filed by Harald Welte, a respected Linux hacker who tracks and eliminates illegal use of software protected by the GPL through his gpl-violations.org project. In a brief email exchange, Welte explains the nature of the violation and how he went about collecting evidence.
When I had first installed the Gentoo GNU/Linux operating system, my initial plan was to use it just for a couple of weeks before overwriting it by installing some other new distribution. But I started to like it so much. What I did regret a few days ago, though, was the amount of disk space that I had allotted for Gentoo.
I do not really like OpenOffice.org. Despite the fact that it technically introduced the Open Document Format to the masses there are not too many good things I could leave on it. Ok, that’s probably a bit too hard: Sure, OpenOffice.org is the only competitor for MSOffice at the moment, and it delivers what most people expect. It also seem to be good enough so that quite a lot of people are backing it.
Ethernet bonding refers to aggregating multiple ethernet channels together to form a single channel. This is primarily used for redundancy in ethernet paths or for load balancing. This page refers in particular to performing ethernet bonding under linux, and so does not limit itself to discussion of 802.3ad Trunk Aggregation.
This tutorial describes how to set up a DHCP server (ISC-DHCP) for your local network. DHCP is short for "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol", it's a protocol that handles the assignment of IP addresses, subnet masks, default routers, and other IP parameters to client PCs that don't have a static IP address. Such computers try to find a DHCP server in their local network which in turn assigns them an IP address, gateway, etc. so that they can connect to the internet or other computers from the local network.
