More and more people use Gtalk as an interesting alternative to MSN Messenger because Gtalk uses an open-source protocol: Jabber. Gtalk and Jabber clients are also better because they don't have ads. In this tutorial we will set up a Gtalk account on GAIM, Gnome's universal instant messager.
As suspected, the criticizing position statement by Linux kernel developers on GPLv3 which calls for the termination of the GPLv3 process is stirring the pot.

Corporations are allocating a growing amount of resources to open-source software, once a radical idea in industries that closely guarded proprietary technology.

Songbird, the Mozilla Firefox blended audio player, has flew out of the nest today with version 0.2 release candidate 1. Songbird v0.2 RC1 supports Linux, Macintosh, and Windows platforms. We at Phoronix have a visual preview of this latest release.
Two hot issues are making the rounds. First, Debian and Firefox are having a spat, and the end result may be that Debian will distribute Firefox under a different name. Second, the war betwen Linus Torvalds and other Kernel developers and the Free Software Foundation over GPLv3 is continuing, with Torvalds saying he's fed up with the FSF. Here is my take on both, and related issues.
Red Hat Inc's total revenue for its fiscal 2007 second quarter may have grown, but when the second-quarter profit slipped 34 percent because of stock compensation expenses, the stock-market had a fit and Red Hat's stock dropped 23.21 percent to $20.21 a share. Was the news really that bad?
The KDE contributors conference part of Akademy 2006 in Dublin kicked off Saturday morning bright and early, much to the dismay of those who had been out late the evening before at the registration desk, conveniently located in a pub.
When most people think about the Mozilla Firefox browser, they think of it as being open source and free. The truth is, while Mozilla Firefox is open source, it is not entirely free.
Adobe's Mike Melanson has posted some more information about the lengthy delays in releasing a new version of Flash Player for Linux.
No clicks needed. No boring setup processes. No Wine complications. Just one easy script and you’ll get three IE versions to test your Sites. And it’s free and open source.This may be very helpful for software developers and web developers to test their applications.
Myah OS 2.3rc1 is now availble for download. I know it's only been a week or 2 since 2.2 came out but I have been working day and night making impovements. So now Myah OS has the latest KDE 3.5.4 with all the propper support.
Opposition to a new version of the licence for open source OS Linux is growing, with a number of prominent developers joining originator Linus Torvalds in criticising changes in wording.
I have always looked at the DOS operating system with some nostalgia. FreeDOS is a project which aims to recreate the magic of DOS. Since I have been using Linux as my operating system, I decided to install and use FreeDOS inside Linux by means of an emulator.
Claiming that, from an open source standpoint, things haven't changed with its recently acquired Berkeley open source embedded database, Oracle Corp is now releasing its next version under the same licenses.
In the commercial Linux distribution racket, the only way to make money is to charge for installation and technical support and other services, such as systems integration or custom modifications. This week, at the Virtualization Executive Forum in New York, Novell said that it would offer technical support on RHEL 4 when it ran within Xen.
Freespire is the new, cost-free alternative from Linspire. How well does it compete with the likes of Ubuntu's Dapper Drake?
One of the most important tasks for a webmaster is to keep a current backup of your database or databases. If you are a small website or the database is low priority, you might just perform the backup manually. One easy way to manually backup your database is to use the backup feature of a database management application such as the open source, freeware program called phpMyAdmin.
The goal of this howto is building an NFS server that works on an SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure. Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish an SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password. We will, however, limit that login session to executing just one command.
