I enjoy x-windows as much as the next person, but I’ve found that text-based applications are the best way to work with information that is essentially text-based. Most direct communication, including E-Mail, Instant Messaging(IM) and Internet Relay Chat(IRC), fall into this category. I will touch upon these three communication methods in this article, and provide the text-based solution that I use.
In this two-part series, A.Lizard explains how he made his Linux workstation cooperate with a Palm. Part 1 discusses how to get your PDA in sync with your Linux Palm desktop.
As ProLinux recently stated, Tales of Tamar is looking for beta testers for a new version of their linux client. ToT is a turn based (PbeM) massively multiplayer strategy and role playing game. You can apply for the beta test filling out a registration form.
Over the last several years, the Linux operating system has gained acceptance as the operating system of choice in many scientific and commercial environments, respectively. Today, the performance aspects of the Linux operating system has improved significantly. This article highlights some of the performance and scalability improvements of the Linux 2.6 kernel.
I started experimenting with Linux for fun, first with Slackware, but in the last few years more with Debian and its derivative distributions. Lately I've been using Linux increasingly in my job. As I've gotten more experienced with Linux, I've started teaching Linux courses to colleagues. Connectivity and fast package and file management are important components in my administration toolbox.
Convergence is the buzzword of the multimedia world. On one hand, the technology now exists to let you store your multimedia files on a home server and then play them from many different devices inside and outside the home.
Janet Valade compresses 19 chapters into 360 pages of text and screenshots including information on both the KDE and Gnome desktops, how to install Fedora, Mandrake, and SUSE (What...no Debian-based distro?), and how to write a shell script.
Whether an agency is replacing legacy systems or deploying new servers, a combined open source solution from Intel, HP and Red Hat is the most scalable, manageable and reliable alternative.
The beta cycle is history! I'm still sweeping up confetti here. OpenSUSE announced the availability of 10.1 release candidate 1 early this morning. I've actually been downloading the deltas lately and even though they come in fairly slow, it is much nicer downloading 300 mbs rather than 3 gigs. I highly recommend that method. I am in the process of downloading the full x86_64 version as well. It's coming in at a snails pace too, but hopefully I will be able to report on it before rc2 comes out. But back to the topic at hand. How did the release candidate do? Will this phase go as planned or will final have to be delayed? Here is my report.
Try KDE is a new resource listing ways that you can try out KDE without commiting to a full GNU/Linux or BSD install. It includes links to live cds, VMware player images and Klik bundles as well as links to KDE desktops available over NX, with explanations of these technologies.

Installing, supporting and particularly diagnosing networks can involve much detective work, in addition to decent levels of frustration and caffeine. As with all investigations, the more data that is available to form and test hypotheses, the more likely a problem will be solved. Therefore, the more options or tools available for data gathering, the more useful the data obtained.
FreeHand Systems used embedded Linux to build an electronic music reader designed to replace paper-based sheet music in practice, lesson, and performance settings.

There are umpteen GNU/Linux distributions and then some more. Many claim their roots in Debian and others in Red Hat. Still others swear that they are unique and were created from grounds up. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a picture which gave a broad idea of the roots of each GNU/Linux distributions? Well look no further. Here is a mind map of almost all GNU/Linux distributions.
Mutt is a fine command-line email client, but it lags Evolution and Thunderbird in its ability to do email filtering. The procmail mail processing utility can help. It is highly configurable, allows for far better email filtering than Thunderbird, and as is customary with command-line applications, it is fast. While procmail is most commonly employed on the server side, its ability to handle POP and IMAP protocols makes it useful for desktop users as well.
The company 1and1 recently started offering virtual servers based on the Virtuozzo virtualization technology. While these machines are quite cheap and provide a full linux work environment they run SUSE by default. Not my favorite linux distribution... I was pretty certain that I could also switch the server to Gentoo. So I tried and it is definitely possible.
This is not a review. It is not fair to review a work in progress. It is not a preview either. Such has already been done. Besides, all too often both views degenerate into a list of everything that does not yet work. And! And! Even reviews of released Linux distributions often do little more than enumerate features that haven't been added yet, but are already present in the author's current favourite. So I won't cover in any great depth what is and is not in Dapper. If you want to mark for yourself each stride forward, please visit the testing pages linked to above. It will tell you what you need to know, and has pretty screen-shots besides.
