On Monday I posted Geekbench results for my Sun Ultra 20 M2 running Solaris and Windows. Afterwards, I received a number of requests asking how Linux performed on the same hardware.
Beyond displaying an extensive slate of existing Linux products, vendors at this week's InfoSecurity show pointed to possible future offerings ranging from a Linux client for a CD-ROM encryption system to a Linux-enabled all-in-one device for securing both physical access and video surveillance.
It's hard to believe Python is more than 15 years old already. While that may seem old for a programming language, in the case of Python it means the language is mature. In spite of its age, the newest versions of Python are powerful, providing everything you would expect from a modern programming language. This article provides a rundown of the new and important features of Python 2.5.
I’m sure many folks are aware of the tension between Mozilla and Debian over the use of the name “Firefox” for the web browser package. First, let me say that both groups are being entirely reasonable about their positions. My goal in our own discussions with Mozilla has been to establish that it really is possible for a distribution that cares about free software and Mozilla to agree on a framework which gives us both what we need. Nobody sold out.
I was once offered to write a small book about Nietzsche. I declined, opting instead to accept another writing assignment about Plato. My reasons were purely personal; Nietzsche depresses me. I don't refute his works, per se. I just tend to avoid them. But there is one quotation that is attributed to him that I think is perfect for this week's news: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." I'm sure that phrase is running around Red Hat headquarters today.
First of all, let me say: Ubuntu sucks! While, Ubuntu (a Linux OS I'm very slowly sinking into, without letting go of Windows XP's hand even for a second) is very good - both in terms of marketing, community and actual product- there is still a long road ahead if it wants to realise it's quest of being the usurper of Windows/OS X.
Ah, back to the delightsome days of accusations of mudblood open source. The newest whipping boy? Attribution clauses. Who uses attribution? Several of the most promising open source companies
With the release of Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft), installing MythTV is now easier than ever. Ubuntu is a great basis for a general purpose MythTV box and now comes with the latest version of MythTV (0.20) in its standard packages. This guide focuses on DVB in the UK (Freeview), but much of it should be applicable to anybody installing Myth.
Firefox ver 2.0 was released a few days back and naturally it is loaded with a host of new features some of them prominent and many more rather subtle. I found this new version to be a huge improvement from the older 1.5.x version which is bundled with most Linux distributions. These are some of the new features in ver 2.0 of Firefox which I found really interesting.
Most of the people want to know about the backups because one of the other day you will definitely need backup of your data.There are many different types of backups and here i try to cover some of them.
I know that some Microsoft fanboys are probably hitting the Send button on their flames as they read the title, but you can't ignore the truth. Linux and BSD are vastly superior to Windows in every way. Don't believe me? Read on, my friend. Read on and realize the folly of your MS ways.
With MRTG you can graph your network traffic, but you can also use it to gather other network information, such as monitoring your system's swap and memory usage. Vincent Danen shows you how to get more out of MRTG in this tip.
Battered by a 24 percent drop in its stock price on Thursday, Red Hat launched a counterattack Friday, announcing plans to repurchase $325 million in stock and debt.

DarkWorld is a space-based massively multiplayer real-time strategy game. Each player starts off with their own home planet. From there they can build ships, start exploring the universe, colonize other planets, and attack other players.
After hours of research and tweaking, all your computers are connected to each other and the Internet, and you can print your documents on a printer connected to another system -- but you still must take a break when someone else wants to use the scanner connected to your system. Save the money additional scanners would cost by sharing your scanner on your LAN.
When I wrote about the wrangling over the GNU GPLv3 licence a month back, it provoked a lively conversation in the comments. Given this evident passion among readers, I thought it would be interesting to ask the top hackers - the ones actually involved in the discussions - for their thoughts on the matter. So I contacted Richard Stallman for the FSF angle, and a bunch of the top kernel hackers - Linus, Alan Cox, Greg Kroah-Hartman, Andrew Morton and Dave Miller - for their view.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison fired a broadside at Red Hat on Wednesday. But now that some of the smoke has cleared, it appears some cannonballs went wide of the mark. Red Hat's business is under new pressure, but it won't be simple for Oracle to walk off with all its customers.
I took the plunge yesterday and upgraded my machine from Ubuntu 6.06 to 6.10. The upgrade instructions were very simple. I was extremely impressed with the upgrade. Absolutely no problems whatsoever.
