A hands-on look at the new MacBook Pro

Filed under
Mac

I had a chance at a special Apple event last week to get a closer look at Apple Computer's new MacBook Pro, the renamed Intel-based successor to the PowerBook unveiled by Apple CEO Steve Jobs two weeks ago. In fact, I had some real "pick it up and use it" hands-on time.

Don't get too excited about Windows source code

Filed under
Microsoft
OSS

"Normally speaking, the source code is not the ultimate documentation of anything." What open source has that is really unique, however, can be summed up in one word, a word that's bandied about so often that it's almost lost its meaning: community. Proper documentation for open source software is notoriously lacking, but the shared body of knowledge of the developers and users of that software is available to anyone for the asking.

First look at KStars under KDE4

Filed under
KDE

I've spent the last few months on the behind-the-scenes architecture of KStars. Since the port to KDE4 was going to be a major overhaul for us anyway, we decided to simultaneously do a major refactoring of how the data catalogs are represented in KStars. We're now using a hierarchical Composite/Component model, and it's working well.

Reviews

The engineers at Logitech certainly have managed to get repeat customers with their exceptionally well-designed mice. In addition, Logitech always pushes new mouse technologies to the market along with jumping on existing bandwagons and they always manage to improve these designs from optical to laser technologies. But will it work in Linux?

Ultima Linux: Third Time's a Charm?

Filed under
Linux
Reviews
-s

New release Ultima Linux 8 was announced this morning and we thought we'd try again. Given our past track record with Ultima, we were a bit leary. To quote the Ultima site, "Ultima Linux is a free distribution of the Linux operating system designed for stability, ease of use, and lots of penguin eye-candy. With Ultima Linux, you get a complete desktop system with everything you?ve come to expect from a computer ? Web browsing, e-mail, word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, image manipulation, and multimedia, for starters ? absolutely free." Well, we're hoping the "third time's a charm," or is it going to be "three strikes - you're out?"

Cherokee vs. Apache: the Older Indian Serves Better?

Filed under
Reviews

Cherokee is a free, alternative web server, started in 2001. Its only limitation is that it doesn't yet run on Windows, but only on Linux, BSD, Solaris and MacOS. I wanted to test Álvaro's statement on Cherokee: « Es el más rápido de todos los servidores web » But I'm not an expert in Indian populations, so YMMV. And this is not a professional review, just a quick assessment.
