Examining options for Windows 98 users - Part 1

Filed under
Linux

As I have said before in my column, one of the biggest misconceptions in the Information Technology (IT) industry is that technology is replaceable. If you do buy a new machine, do you pay the Microsoft Windows tax or do you find a machine on the secondary market and avoid paying the tax to get Linux installed directly.

Filed under
Reviews

There are almost too many Linux distros to count, and many live Linux CDs. So what is KANOTIX, and what's so great about it?

FUD Never Changes

Filed under
OSS

Hey, it's our old friend FUD making an appearance yet again! Does it work? Apparently Microsoft thinks so, because it's employing it again in the form of comments from chief platform strategist Bill Hilf: "most open-source code is terribly inferior to commercial software code." I mean, c'mon. That's flatly ridiculous.

Filed under
Moz/FF

Keeping up with the World Cup can be a pain, especially if you're at work and have to keep one eye peeled for your boss. If you could use a better way to catch the latest scores -- and if you only want soccer results -- drop by Mozilla.org and try out Boris Ruf's Footiefox extension.

KWord 2.0 progress

Filed under
KDE

After working on Flake for the last couple of weeks I refocussed on KWord earlier this week. KWord needs an amazing amount of refactors to get the best out of the new features both Qt4 and Flake provide, so this left me with a dilemma on where to start and how to approach this best.

Xandros Server...WOW!

Filed under
Reviews

When I first read about XANDROS SERVER, I thought this might be a marriage made in heaven. The Press Release said that this was a Linux based server for System Admins with little or no Linux experience. Mine was a little different. I had Linux experience, however no server or server set-up experience.

Also: Xandros 4 Home Ed. is a breeze to install!
