daniweb.com: Open source software is being taken seriously as a viable alternative to expensive proprietary applications but it's important to realize that, like its commercial brethren, it comes with a license for use. It's also important to remember that all open source licensing is not created equal.
kdedevelopers.org: As you might have noticed, KDE 4.1.3 has been released. The changelog part for KWin has just one change worth mentioning. But that is not the case for users of the openSUSE KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop packages.
itwire.com: Companies which sell GNU/Linux distributions could increase the profile and sales of their products in one way: install them on top-tier laptops, tune them up so that everything runs like a dream and then hand them out to those who write about GNU/Linux.
terminally-incoherent.com: A little while ago we had an interesting discussion on what programming language should be taught to CS majors. I think that overwhelming number of people agreed that C++ is a solid choice because provides students with a very solid, low level background.
debian-administration.org: Many readers will have heard about Arjan van de Ven and Auke Kok's work to boot an ASUS Eee 901 in 5 seconds. Inspired by this work, and because I have the same laptop, I decided to try to reproduce their results. So far I have not come very close to their 5 seconds, but I have made some significant improvements.
ostatic.com: One of the main complaints about the open source OpenOffice.org suite of productivity applications is that the applications are slow compared to the comparable Microsoft Office apps. If you've run into this problem, try Go-oo.
theunixgeek.blogspot: Bjarne Stroustrup began C with Classes in 1979, as a better C that supports object-oriented programming, generic programming, and data abstraction. In 1983, it became C++. Nearing the end of the century, 1998, a C++ ANSI-ISO standard was created. Sometime in the near future, C++0x is coming along.
bushweed.blogspot: When it comes to business, it's all about cost. Software is certainly no exception. From a business point of view, what does free software mean? If it's just free, and i'll maintain the simile of free beer, why isn't every art department using Blender or Gimp?
itnews.com.au: Often unsung and underappreciated, their own personalities or lifestyles usually keep them from gaining greater public recognition. With so many great minds to choose from, it was all but impossible to narrow this list down to ten but after considerable argument we’re managed it.
regebro.wordpress: As you may have seen from my recent posts I’m trying out OS X. There is no doubt that for the casual computer users viewpoint OS X kicks Linux’s ass. But I’m a open source computer programmer, and for us things are definitely not as clear cut. Five years ago, they probably would have been, but then Ubuntu arrived.
opsamericas.com: For anyone who was paying attention to this weeks 60 Minutes episode on CBS, you may have seen a clip of the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC with a SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop sticker on it!
blogs.computerworld: In a recent story about Microsoft running scared of Linux, I got a lot of mail saying things like, "when installing programs becomes as easy as Windows then Microsoft will be in trouble....most people couldn't be bothered stuffing around trying to find programs that will work and then figuring out how to install [them]." Ah, hello, it's actually easier to install software in Linux than it is in Windows.
dthomasdigital.wordpress: In my last post one of the the feedback responses I received quipped that Linux was not ready for everyone. Among the many reason was that people wanted to play the latest games and that the latest games don’t come on the Linux platform.
linux-watch.com: I've been nonplussed the last few weeks as ordinarily sane compu-journalists opine that Windows 7 will somehow kill Linux on netbooks. This weekend, I had a chance to actually see XP running on an EEE 900, and I can tell you, Linux has nothing to fear from Redmond.
earthweb.com: Today SimplyMepis is back and in full swing with a beta available of SimplyMepis 8, most people would never know this due to the incredible lack of media coverage. After all, Linux is never spoken of these days without the name Ubuntu accompanying it. With any luck, this article will work to change this.
downloadsquad.com: I've noticed five issues so far that, though minor, leave me wondering if Microsoft is going to be able to pull off a really great OS by its projected mid-2009 release.
thevarguy.com: Red Hat has found a way to link open source with Star Wars. Sci-Fi Geeks across the galaxy must be celebrating. And Red Hat is set to more effectively navigate the digital entertainment universe. Here’s the scoop.
linuxfud.wordpress: Will the use of Linux void the manufacturer’s warranty of your computer hardware? This is one fear that prevents some people from making the leap to Linux, which is why it is on my Top 10 List of Linux FUD Patterns. The short answer is, it depends; however, there are steps that you can take to increase your probability of receiving service under a warranty.
phoronix.com: Late last month we published system benchmarks of Ubuntu 7.04 through 8.10 and had found -- at least with the Intel notebook we were using -- that the performance had degraded with time. In our original article we hadn't focused much upon the graphics tests and we were just using ATI's binary driver, but per a request from Canonical's Bryce Harrington, we have carried out some open-source graphics tests on Ubuntu 7.04 through 8.10 and we started with the ATI performance.
opensource.org: There's an argument commonly heard these days that open-source software is all very well for infrastructure or commodity software where the requirements are well-established, but that it can't really innovate. I laugh when I hear this.
