devside.net/blog: I’ve always said that for Linux to have a chance on the desktop it must be turned into Windows. I know how that might sound to most, but that statement is completely true.
Seeking Alpha: Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone. Dell's initial success with Ubuntu apparently has caught Hewlett-Packard's attention.
linux devcenter: With the release of Debian Etch as stable a couple months ago there have been several articles circulating comparing these two distributions. I’ve also found myself in conversations with several people of various backgrounds about this, including Don Crowder, a hobbist who recently wrote Slowly Closing Old Windows. The result of all this discussion has been pretty much as I expected.
ZNet: Many of us know that governments can threaten the human rights of software users through censorship and surveillance of the Internet. Many do not realize that the software they run on their home or work computers can be an even worse threat. Thinking of software as "just a tool", they suppose that it obeys them, when in fact it often obeys others instead.
linux.com: I've been a fan of SimplyMEPIS for years. Earlier this month the MEPIS site announced a community variation for older computers based on SimplyMEPIS. AntiX is an installable live CD that features a modern kernel, recent X server, and lighter applications for use on computers with as little as 64MB RAM.
ITtoolbox Blogs: Everybody loves to hype on their own operating system. We have the Microsoft shills, Linux fanboyz, and Mac fanatics. I am also guilty of getting out the BFG when someone tries to detract from my favourite Linux operating system . I decided to go past all that emotionalism and look at some real numbers.
iTWire: There's no denying that Linux is a popular operating system and is genuinely seen by many as a viable alternative to Microsoft's market domination. However, once having decided to go with Linux, the next question is which Linux distribution to use?
freesoftwaremagazine: In Part One and Part Two of this blog, I looked at Beagle and its alternative interfaces (Peagle, Yabi and Peagle). In this last part, I want to take a look at three other search engines as viable replacements.
Vsftpd is one of the most secure and fastest FTP servers for Linux. Usually vsftpd is configured to work with system users. This document describes how to install a vsftpd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users.
the inquirer: PROGRAMMERS at Splash Damage, developing Quake Wars: Enemy Territory, have revealed that Linux support for the game will be imminently forthcoming after the Windows release.
sheehantu: You never know who may be watching your connection. With constitution violators like AT&T and other service providers your data can be in the hands of big brother. Here are a few tips for securing your online experience, so you can enjoy the web in peace.
lxpages.com blog: If you work on command-line often, then this reference guide is for you. This is a quick reference of Emacs and Vi while in command-line bash.
allaboutubuntu: I’ve spent recent days praising Ubuntu’s simplicity. My $1,400 investment in a screaming Dell machine running Ubuntu was money well spent. But I also realize Ubuntu won’t appeal to all users. In fact, I can think of at least four key reasons.
phoronix: There's a problem with Solaris and Sun knows it. The installation experience of Solaris (along with other areas) could be greatly improved. The installer doesn't "suck" as it's easy and known to Solaris administrators, but for a Linux or Windows user it could prove to be a bit challenging.
Wired.com: Hans Reiser is waiting for me, standing on the other side of an imitation-wood table. The room is small, the concrete walls bare. A guard locks the steel door from the outside. There is no sound. Reiser is wearing the red jumpsuit of a prisoner in solitary confinement.
nerdica: For those of us who enjoy using the Gnome desktop environment, we know we want our GUI applications to be easy to use and seamless. But, there’s always that one program that uses the KDE QT library to provide a front-end.
Phoronix: Hitting the web this afternoon was the AMD 8.38.6 display driver. Introduced in this driver was official Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 packaging scripts.
seopher: Pardus is a relatively unknown release funded and developed by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey and I was rather impressed with it last time, so let's give it another go and see what improvements have been made. NOTE: I appreciate this is a Release Candidate so it's not a final release, but I'm going to give it a preliminary review anyway.
Caitlyn Martin: The new SOHO even sports a newer kernel under the hood: 184.108.40.206. Vector Linux SOHO resembles a next release rather than a different build of the same release. It probably should have been numbered 5.9 rather than 5.8 and it does deserve a separate review.
softpedia: We talked a few days ago about the Compiz and Beryl mergence and the name of the newly born project resulted from this fusion, Compiz Fusion. The following guide will teach you (step by step) how to install Compiz Fusion on your Ubuntu (Kubuntu) 7.04 operating system.
