If you've been at all interested in Ubuntu, you'll have read what it's like to use when you first install it. You've got the world's best browser, some damn fine office software, a few games, a nice clean windowing interface and almost everything you need right there on the desktop. All that's true.
If you’re like me, which is a debian/ubuntu user who likes to instal new and use(ful)(less) software all the time, then apt will be an important part of your life. It’s time too look into a powerful program used in the Debian world. Apt.
Looks like most reasons Linux is not being adopted in the workplace are based on false assumptions and incorrect perceptions. How can we promote Linux adoption in the workplace? Seems to me the answer lies in educating and informing the "powers that be" in IT departments.
Munich has begun its migration to Linux on the desktop, a year later than planned and nearly three years since the city announced its move to open source software.
My school is full of old computers that are being groomed for certain death and possible sale at our state’s surplus lot. I have decided to take more than a passing interest in putting them to use. So began my search for a good Linux distro to use. I first tried Edubuntu.
Good security is the basis of any viable website. With the internet being the most public of places, broken systems cost—money, reputations and possibly customer identities are the currency. Pro PHP Security, published by Apress and written by Chris Snyder and Michael Southwell, is a detailed and authoritive account of the security details that effect a successful deployment of a PHP website.
DEFCON is one of the oldest and largest hacking conventions. Itýs essentially 3 days of great information about the latest and greatest in security, sans the vendor stuff (a big plus for me!). There are all kinds of competitions to test your hacking skills, including lock picking, building robots, capture the flag, and coffee wars. There's something for everyone.
7-Zip is lot more efficient at achieving high compression rates than most of the other popular compression tools(including gzip and bzip2). The difference in the sizes of compressed files was not trivial
In my opinion the current software-packaging/software-install system for Linux systems is a crappy thing: Every distribution packages the most interesting and important packages for itself: KDE stuff, GNOME, compiler, apache, and add on packages like firefox. Therefore, each work is repeated not only twice but dozens of times. This is dumb.
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on. Webmin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd. The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use no non-standard Perl modules.
Vancouver Community College made the switch to Linux from a mixed environment of NetWare and Windows operating systems one year ago when it purchased IBM blade servers, which came with Linux pre-installed, to replace its aging infrastructure. Novell’s Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 now accounts for over 50 per cent of VCC’s server environment, which has 40 physical servers and double that number of virtual machines.
The U.S. Commerce Department said Wednesday it would renew its authority over the company that manages Internet domain names beyond Sept. 30, when the U.S. government had been expected to permanently cede control.
Sometimes it's the simple ideas that produce powerful applications -- like a terminal emulator that provides several shells side by side in a single window. A few days ago, I was looking for a way to split windows in Konsole when I ran across QuadKonsole, a program that embeds several Konsole instances in a single window, making it easy to switch between shell sessions and keep an eye on all of them at once.
Three political groups in the European Parliament (EP) have warned that software patents are re-emerging into EU politics with an EP vote scheduled for next month.
By publishing its Opteron socket specification, AMD is making it easier for chip makers to design processors that just snap into an AMD motherboard.
Open source software maker Novell Inc. said Wednesday it received a delisting notice from Nasdaq and a default notice from Wells Fargo, related to the company's delay in filing third-quarter results.
More than 200 members of the KDE community, industry partners, and interested users will be gathering next week for aKademy 2006 at the Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland to work on the next-generation desktop, KDE 4, and desktop standards.
It was a year ago today that we were here to share with you what to expect from NVIDIA's 1.0-8XXX Linux display drivers. Most notably in that preview was word of SLI (Scalable Link Interface) finally coming to the proprietary Linux drivers. When that support did finally come, we at Phoronix were quickly disappointed with its indigent support. Today for your reading pleasure are a few details as to what NVIDIA Linux users can expect to see from the upcoming 1.0-9XXX driver series.
Seriously, how many times must users and businesses be kicked in the face before they buy a clue? Before they realize that they don't have to stay in the abusive Microsoft relationship. The answer seems to be: an unlimited number of times.
After having read the last DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 169, 18 September 2006, I was tempted to express my anger against the futile loss of energy in the "licensing fight" that led into cdrtools forking in Debian — but also in other distros.
