"So-called 'modern desktop environments' are totally unusable, and present-day mainstream graphical user interfaces in general are far less usable than they are praised to be." So begins the declaration of intent behind Ion, a tiny window manager with no icons, backgrounds, or themes. It does have tabs -- its author, Tuomo Valkonen, invented the concept -- and once you spend time with it you're struck by the efficiency of its design.
In our first installment, we described why you need our Linux-based network appliances. Today we're going to start construction.
There are so many attractive aspects to QEMU, it's hard to know where to start. For example, on Linux, running it in "user-mode emulation" allows you to execute a Linux app written for a CPU other than the one running in your host system. QEMU intercepts calls to the Linux kernel -- from the guest app -- and manages the marshalling of data in both directions.
Blake Ross turned 21 a week ago, and he marked the event by appearing before a crowded City Club of Cleveland luncheon. Why would this young man — presently a college dropout — draw the interest of the venerated speakers’ forum? The answer can be found in two words: Mozilla Firefox.
The European Union’s top antitrust regulator is poised to issue a formal ruling that finds Microsoft guilty of breaking EU competition rules. The ruling is likely to be accompanied by fines for the US software group of up to €2m ($2.5m) a day.

Ubuntu, a user-friendly version of Linux, has been running so nicely on my home personal computer that I decided to do an experiment. I wrote down a list of tasks I normally do with Windows XP and decided to see how many of them I could do on Linux.
Elephants Dream, an open movie made entirely out of open source technology, has released more content under the Creative Commons Licensing scheme.
The volunteer effort raising $10,000 to place at least two backpage ads in New York City's free daily paper Metro is now entering its second full week. We've collected over 10% of our goal already and continue to find new pledge donors at a healthy pace.
Network engineer uses free programs for software distribution, databases and spam filtering to help support Apple Mac environment.
Linux cops a lot of arguably unjustified flack from the mainstream media for being an operating system for supernerds who like nothing better than to spend the weekend recompiling their kernel.
The Victorian Department of Justice (DoJ) is understood to have deployed a secure, "locked-down" Linux environment across more than 100 desktops in state prisons.
We sat down virtually this weekend with Jon Watson, the head of the Linux World Net blog network - focused on Linux. Here’s Jon’s dish:
There is nothing like starting the week off with a bang as ATI delivers the Windows CATALYST 6.6 and fglrx 8.26.18 Linux display drivers. Yes, the ATI drivers are shipping on a Monday compared against their usual Wednesday routine.
VoIP call quality isn't always what it should be. Sometimes it is plagued by jitter, echo, lag--even dropped calls. In the next two articles you're going to learn how to prioritize your VoIP traffic to get the best quality. Linux has all the tools you need to do this. All that's required from you is an understanding of TCP/IP networking fundamentals--which we'll talk about today--and a traffic-shaping utility. Next week we'll get into the hands-on implementation, using the excellent utility Wondershaper.
I've been programming in Perl for years - over ten now in fact - and I've written numerous books and articles on Perl and Perl programming. I've also worked with Python and written books and articles on Python programming, including a guide to migrating Perl applications to the Python language. For a while I really saw Python as an alternative to Perl, but after so many years and experience with Perl and what was possible with the language it is difficult to move on from the 'Perl comfort zone'.
As predicted, the open source community has come up with a way to convert VxWorks-based LinkSys wireless WRT54G routers to Linux. The process does not require hardware hacking, and installs a recent version of "DD-WRT micro."
There's a good deal of spelunking going on these days at the Oregon State University Open Source Labs, but there's nary a rocky underground cave in sight.
