Raiden's Realm: "World of Padman - Stand Alone Complex" is an exciting, comic, and downright loony adventure through the fictitious world of "Padman", a comic book superhero drawn in the oddest of styles.
packt publishing: Kororaa's developer Chris Smart probably had the best tutors introduce him to Linux, including Andrew Tridgell, the author of Samba file server. In this discussion with Chris, he talks about why he developed Kororaa, why people interested in learning Linux should use Gentoo, and his new project to help users make the move to Free and Open Source software.
MEPIS has announced that the release candidate of a community built and maintained ultra-lite derivative of MEPIS has been released for public testing. AntiX is not a lite version of SimplyMEPIS and it is not an official product of MEPIS. It is built from the MEPIS Linux core.
freesoftwaremagazine: In part one, I looked at the Beagle search tool on the command line and the graphical user interface and in part two I want to look at alternative front-ends for it. First out of the stable is...
Moving to Freedom: I’m getting moved in at 1776 Freedom Lane. Just a few boxes unpacked so far. I have backups set up going to the slug, and am getting mail in Thunderbird. I knew the house came furnished with some nice accessories, but was pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to use one of the features.
linux.com: TreeLine is a hybrid application that combines the features of a traditional outliner with a free-form database. As such, it offers a unique way to organize heterogeneous data, be it contact information, bookmarks, text snippets, bibliography, task lists, or something else.
The last few weeks have seen a dramatic increase in spam (once again). Estimates say that spam makes now up for 80 - 90% of all emails, and many mail servers have difficulties in managing the additional load caused by the latest spam, and spam filters such as SpamAssassin do not recognize large parts of that spam as they did before. Fortunately, we can block a big amount of that spam at the MTA level.
There is no doubt about it. Microsoft knows what they are doing. However it seems to me that no-one else, particularly businesses, can see what they are doing. To use a cliche or two Microsoft is using the carrot and stick method to divide and conqueror.
The sad part about it is the open source community is letting them.
A Blog Of Gentoo: In my previous post I started to explain the process of "spicing up" the Windows installation by moving to Linux. This time I will explain the 2nd step: Spicing up Multimedia applications.
WindowsITPro: If you've been following the tech news lately, you might be aware of an interesting development in the virtual cold war that's existed between Microsoft and the open-source movement since, well, the inception of the open-source movement. Microsoft's reaction to those who make "free" software has evolved over the years, and oddly enough, it seems to have followed the cycle of the Kübler-Ross "5 stages of grief":
Debian Package of the Day: Open Text Summarizer is both a library and a command line tool (developed by Nadav Rotem) that, well, summarises text. It is similar to the functionality incorporated into Microsoft Word and available in all native Mac OS X applications.
click: I purchased all four major releases of Xandros, starting with 1.0, and all the Premium versions when available. Now, after four and a half years, I learn it was a lie. I'm currently installing PCLinuxOS 2007.
Also: PCLinuxOS 2007 is amazingly well done !
linux.com: John Weathersby, executive director of the Open Source Software Institute, told Linux.com today that, effective immediately, the Department of the Navy has adopted a new policy which requires that open source software must be considered in every software acquisition the Navy makes.
/home/liquidat: The KDE-PIM developers decided to release their KDE module together with the main release. That means that KDE 4.0 will ship with a KDE 4 version of the KDE-PIM tools.
Tux -o- Blog: I wanted a new distribution that sported a nice Gnome desktop, but without the many additional programs that come installed by default in a standard Ubuntu installation. What did I do in the end?
Mozilla Links: In Firefox, one thing you can’t customize is the main menu. And you may find it’s a waste of space to have a whole bar for just a couple of frequent tasks like bookmarking, history or tweaking a preference here and there. Pesonal Menu is a Firefox extension developed by Merci Chao that comes to solve this.
Fabrice Facorat: What a bad luck I've just noticed that OpenOffice.org doesn't support OpenType fonts ( .otf ) under Linux. This is really disappointing. Freet(ype and others Linux applications ( koffice, abiword ) are able to handle OTF fonts whereas OpenOffice.org can't. There's 2 ways to workaround this issue :
MPlayer 1.0rc1try3 was released because of a security fix. A stack overflow was found and reported by Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Researchin in the code used to handle cddb queries. Two other similar issues were found by Reimar Döffinger while fixing the issue.
CyberNetNews: Have you been itching to get your hands on a Media Center computer that lets you record all of your shows? Both Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate include these capabilities, but you can download Mythbuntu if you’re looking for an open source alternative to put an extra PC to work.
FOSSwire: It’s not often that you take a lot of notice of the calculator application in your operating system. However, if you do want a bit more flexibility, control and features than the average calculator application, you may want to take a look at SpeedCrunch.
