Last week I wrote about using GNU/Linux, and justified why I use it. America might be the land of the brave, down here we're the land of the apathetic... Does in really matter how and under what circumstances I became involved as long as I'm here now? Does it matter if I'm using it because it's cheap, or because it's better, or because I like the politics? What if I don't give two hoots about the politics? Is there a good way and a bad way to use FLOSS?
Orem itself has three notable features: a steakhouse that serves the largest portions of food known to man; a university that churns out graduates to work at Novell; and Novell itself. Since the purchase, Suse has failed to impress on Novell's bottom line. And then came Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop and Server 10.
"The whole concept is really a development methodology," said Paul Smith, vice president of government sales operations at Red Hat. "What the Dept. of Defense is trying to accomplish is a change in their governance model. [It's] a move from their old way of stovepipe development to a more open source model."
Students in upstate New York have moved one step closer to having a computer at every desk thanks to a pilot program using Linux desktops from Novell on Intel-based computers.
The Linux operating system -- a free, open-source alternative to Windows and Mac OS X -- has long served to define the gap between people who merely use computers and those who tinker with them.
Standing at the counter of a local electrical retailer I noticed some mp3 players hanging on a rack. The fine print said "Compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux".
Short review of CentOS and Red Hat and how Ubuntu is not gonna push anyone out of the server and enterprise market especially these two.
With Stallman, a passionate evangelist of the Open Source software movement, in India on a proselytising mission, the Election Commission has decided to uninstall Microsoft Office applications from its entire workspace and replace them with the free OpenOffice.
Willy Tarreau, the new maintainer of the Linux 2.4 kernel, released the 18.104.22.168 kernel. This is a security fix release for the 2.4.33 kernel and the first time a 2.4-series kernel is being released with 4 version fields.
Internet News reported on a panel discussion of the reasons why Linux was successful. The impression that Linux was more receptive to new ideas and less demanding about their implementation is alluded to: It has also given the illusion of a kernel and OS more open to the individual developer.
The Mambo CMS has a built-in module for content syndication through RSS, OPML, ATOM, and other feed types. Unfortunately, it is configured to push new content URLs without the search engine-optimized (SEO) modification.
During a meeting today with state officials and advocates for people with disabilities, Louis Gutierrez, CIO of Massachusetts' IT Division (ITD), said the state will postpone a Jan. 1 deadline to roll out open-source office applications that can save files in the Open Document Format (ODF).
PC silicon vendor Via Technologies is holding a contest that encourages "girls" of any age (over 18) to hone their gaming skills at a world-class gaming facility in Sweden, where they'll be treated to some high-powered gaming training with Via's "girlz 0f destruction" gaming ambassadors.
The important warning first: this is only for developers and not openSUSE 10.2 stuff! KDE has released a first development snapshot of KDE4 and the KDE:KDE4 project in the openSUSE Build Service has RPMs of qt, kdelibs, kdepimlibs and kdebase for SUSE Linux 10.0 and up.
You can now get the latest version of Firefox for your Mandriva Linux 2006 system directly from the Security Updates. We had shipped 1.0.6 versions of both applications with Mandriva Linux 2006.0 and we decided to break our no-backports rule for Firefox and Thunderbird for that reason.
This so often repeated myth is getting so old and so boring. And untrue. Linux doesn't need defragmenting, because its filesystem handling is not so stupid like when using several decades old FAT. Yadda yadda, blah blah. Now, the real question is: If Linux really doesn't need defragmenting, why does Windows boot faster and why does second startup of KDE need only roughly one quarter of time the first startup needs?
