Marcel's Linux Game of the Month : SolarWolf

Filed under
Gaming

Harken back with me, faithful reader, to the days of yore. Yea and verily, I speak of the days of video arcades, when a quarter of a dollar would buy you frantic minutes whereupon you, as humanity's only hope, were called upon to protect the earth from invading, marauding, aliens. In the spirit of those great arcade games comes SolarWolf, a superb arcarde game inspired by the old Atari game, SolarFox.

The Gentoo Store has updated its selection of clothing and schwag. The main addition is the new line-up of women's clothing sporting the Gentoo logo.

Run Windows On Linux: Win4Lin Revisited

Filed under
Software

If you are a Windows user who interacts with Linux on a regular or occasional basis, you will eventually feel disenfranchised. For those brave souls who migrate away from Windows and into the Linux realm there will always be a void left where Windows functionality is unmatched on the Linux platform, or where Linux lacks a suitable replacement. Win4Lin provides a happy middle ground.

Last week we provided a brief overview of Nagios, and explained how it can make your infrastructure monitoring fun and easy. As promised, we'd like to talk a bit more about the configuration files.

How the net was lost

Filed under
Web

Those who currently struggle to maintain what is called “Net Neutrality” on the internet I think have taken too limited an approach to their struggle. What they ask is to maintain an existing status quo that had already been eroded from the original promise and potential of the internet against those who wish to change it even further. It would be far better to challenge it by fighting to actively restore the rights of all internet users.

HowTos

Apple is, after all, a hardware company, and if Linux and Windows users can now buy Macs safe in the knowledge that they can use both their favourite OS and Mac OS X, or perhaps even all three, on their new machine, they may well see greater adoption in the marketplace.

Linux Peanut Gallery Razzes Microsoft Transition

Linux

Last week's Microsoft succession news sparked an array of definitely NOT-for-attribution-comments from those who've watched the company forever. One IM buddy with Linux proclivities rejoiced when it became clear that Gates was stepping back.
