Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distro whose goal in life, per its website, "is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution." The developers have released both GNOME-based and KDE-based versions in the past, and their latest version, v2.2 "Bianca," is already final in its GNOME incarnation.
The techno-literati have long-heralded the day when the Linux operating system will dominate the desktops of the world. But so far, it's been wishful thinking. That's not to say Linux has not been a success. It most definitely has, but in a different realm.
I purchased a computer just a few weeks ago - a travel laptop with a whole lot of power in a two-pound package. There was an option to get the computer with the new Windows Vista installed, so i figured I should get with the times and step up to the new operating system.
Slax is a live CD that I've been very anxious to try. Any distro that claims to be light on hardware -- yet features the KDE desktop -- is something I've got to try. I'm beginning to think KDE gets a bad rap. It runs pretty darn well in this distro, as well as in MepisLite. And I think KOffice is a terrific package, with KWrite being one of the best programs out there for writers.
In many ways, there's never been a better time than now to make a big enterprise move to Linux. Code is mature, competition is fierce, and there are only a few serious contenders. However, each one of these Linux distributions has a distinct feature set, migration path and face for accountability. Picking the right one for your enterprise is crucial.
Debian is one of my favorite distros; but in terms of look, I hate it. At each release, I am hoping for visual improvements but each time I get disappointed. Etch is no different, the artworks are unpolished, the icon set (Rodent on the Xfce desktop) is prehistoric and in general, the desktop has a poor aesthetic appearance.
If you own a website, chances are that you need to use a database to run many site operations. For the most part, people use MySQL.
Most hosts offer a solution to manage your database. A common choice for this is phpMyAdmin. But, for many, phpMyAdmin can be slow or feel bloated on slower connections.
gcc (GNU C Compiler) is actually a collection of frontend tools that does compilation, assembly, and linking. The goal is to produce a ready-to-run executable in a format acceptable to the OS. For Linux, this is ELF (Executable and Linking Format) on x86 (32-bit and 64-bit). But do you know what some of the gcc parameters can do for you?
Tagging has taken off in the Web 2.0 world as a way to organize and find items of interest. And for the most part they've existed only in the browser view of the Web.
After an interesting development cycle, SimplyMepis 6.5 was delivered to the anxiously awaiting community yesterday. Having started out as an update to the 6.0 release, it soon grew to encompass several highly desired features.
In my debut article on PolishLinux.org I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite window managers — IceWM. This unusually lightweight window manager has been created in C++ by Marko Maček. The first version was released on 26 Dec. 1999. The latest stable one (IceWM v.1.2.30) appeared on 24 Dec. 2006
Fullerscreen is an extension that gives Web pages in Firefox the full run of your monitor. If you spend much time using Web-based applications like Gmail, Google Notebook, or Backpack, Fullerscreen is a must-have addition to Firefox.
If you’re a long-time NetWare user, you might think you know everything Novell-ish. However, the company looks a lot different these days than it used to, now that it is focused on Linux and is claiming customers who never used NetWare. So for those who remember NetWare fondly -- as well as those who wouldn’t know NetWare from OS/2 -- here are nine things we bet you don't know about Novell.
You can use Kerberos to verify the identities of users and principals over networks.
Linux for Clinics has released a Alpha testing release. Known issues... 1. Ubiquity icon is from Ubuntu 2. Initial boot screen on Livecd is still Ubuntu 3. Forgot to remove Gnome-Games 4. Forgot to install the medical dictionary for openoffice.org 5. No LFC upgrade path...Have not implemented our repository yet.
The Aims of the Linux For Clinics Project
A GPL provision to prevent Novell/Microsoft-type agreements may not pacify the open-source community
The latest draft of the GNU General Public Licence (GPL) has caused more ructions in the Linux community.
As I promised in my previous post I’ll report here on my experiences with the freshly installed Xubuntu Feisty Fawn. Though I’ll note the changes mentioned on other reviews, but I’ll also try to add changes that aren’t that apparent and that you haven’t read about elsewhere.
It's been quite a while since I've published a review of the workstation platforms from AMD and Intel, but, with all the changes in both platforms recently, it's high time. This brings us to this review of the Intel Xeon 5300 series processors and the AMD Opteron 2200 series processors.
For a few months I have been spending a lot of time using a Mac running OS/X for 40 hours a week. Recently a discussion started at a client site as to whether Macs or PCs should be used for future desktop machines.
