Geotagging is the association of geographic location information with an object. A geotag comprises three pieces of information: a name and longitude and latitude values. Once files are geotagged, they can be indexed and searched based on the geographic information they contain. Here's how you can tag your photos, documents and other files so you can search for place-related information on your PC using Google Earth.
Mozilla has hired a former Microsoft security strategist to help lock down its open-source products against online attacks.
With GNOME 2.16.0 shipping today, the nightly LiveCD images of Ubuntu have been updated to this new stable version of GNOME. Curious to see what Ubuntu Edgy Eft looks like with GNOME 2.16.0? We have plenty of images to share today.
Enterprise Linux customers typically pick from just two options. Although HP’s decision to support Debian could widen the playing field, the choice really comes down to Novell and Red Hat. It’s worth comparing the two in terms of product offerings and overall style.
A Chinese company hopes to manufacture a low-cost PC that it will sell to schools and local governments starting in October. The PC will include a locally-designed Godson CPU running at 800MHz to 1GHz, with 256Mbytes of DDR DRAM, a 40-60Gbyte hard drive and will run on Linux.
It's 2007, and you want to upgrade all your PCs' operating systems after the infamous March 2007 XP Meltdown. You know, the virus attack that actually melted computers running XP, but couldn't touch machines running any other OS? Never heard of it? Well, play along with me, OK?
At first sight (and practice will confirm it), you can choose either of the books without being wrong. They're both targeted to the beginner to intermediate user who wants no know more about Fedora, RHEL or CentOS, in an accessible language, a practical presentation -- and having a book is rather handy at times, as you don't need an Internet connection to read anything.
Many KDE users tend to take the Konqueror Web browser for granted, but that's a mistake. Konqueror may not be able to replace Firefox as a Web browser for every site, but it does a lot more than just simple browsing.
If you look up in your taskbar, the one on the top of your monitor, you’ll see Applications, Places and System. We’re going to look at System today and see a few bits of what’s in there that can be useful to us.
Israeli open source software developer Alexander Maryanovsky has filed a lawsuit against international master chess player Alexander Rabinovich alleging that the chess player and his organization have violated the GPL.
In July, Canonical appointed Richard Weideman as its education programme manager. In short, he's the "first line contact on behalf of Canonical for all education issues", managing the company's growing list of education-related products and services as well as identifying new areas of growth.
In an open source world that's increasingly straying from idealistic roots in a bid to lure venture capital money, the Mozilla Corporation is something of a standout. Its mission: to make the Internet a better place.
Mark Shuttleworth is rich enough to cause some havoc in the feel-good Linux community. In January 2000, at the peak of the dot-com bubble, Shuttleworth sold his South African security software firm, Thawte, to VeriSign for $700 million in stock. Shuttleworth cashed out almost immediately, walking away with the entire purchase price, just as VeriSign's stock began its rapid descent. “Life has been kind to me,” he says.
LINUX OUTFIT Xandros has found itself a UK distributor and aims to hawk its products over the counters of major retailers.
With all of the redundancy in today's servers, its easy to think that you will never need serial port access to your shiny new server. But what do you do when you're at home and your server is at the data center, and your trusty friend SSH fails you? Go back to where remote access started -- a console server.
In July 2005 news first emerged of Sun Microsystems' first foray into open source identity management with the Open Web Single Sign-On (OpenSSO) project. Now, more than a year later, the project has been formally launched. My thoughts on this announcement are the same as those of a year ago and I have seen nothing on the project site which causes me to change that.
The Canadian federal government has embarked on an ambitious project that will use open source software to manage assets created for use in the public sector, including custom-developed applications.
ASUS has been known for their motherboards and graphics cards for some years now, but few have been exposed to their recent efforts to create viable wireless networking equipment. One of their most recent efforts is focused on the WL-500g Premium. With support for attaching external hard drives and cameras, as well as a unique download platform, ASUS has certainly placed itself in an interesting position. Did we mention that the router's firmware is also open-source and runs Linux?
To fan those flames, so to speak, I have some additional criticisms about Linux. Right off the bat, if Linux wants to be taken seriously by the business desktop market, it has to first take itself more seriously. What do I mean by that? Basically, kill the penguin and all of the marketing cuteness!
