When I talk with with other people about Free-Libre / Open Source Software (FLOSS), I still hear a lot of people mistakenly use the term “commercial software” as if it had the opposite meaning of FLOSS (aka open source software, Free-Libre Software, or OSS/FS).
Novell's controversial pact with Microsoft reflects the desire of the number two Linux seller to position itself as a mixed-source company. Speaking to ZDNet Asia last week, Maarten Koster, the newly-appointed president of Novell Asia-Pacific, noted that the company positions itself in the market differently from its rivals.
In a couple of fascinating threads on the lkml, Linus Torvalds has been working with several other kernel developers to try and track down a difficult data corruption bug. Linus posted a test-program that's capable of consistently triggering the data corruption, so it's a matter of time before the bug is found and fixed.
If you are doing digital photography, and these days, who isn’t, then chances are you will be in need of an image editing program. If you have the money, you can spend around $600 for a copy of Photoshop or, for less functionality, you can get Photoshop Elements for about $100. But what if you are just starting out, or on a tight budget, or you work in a Linux environment?
Brazil-based Hoplon Infotainment is a startup game developer and an open source shop. Its upcoming first product, Taikodom, is a "massively multiplayer online game (MMOG)" that includes elements of science fiction and magic. Hundreds of thousands of online users can play an MMOG at the same time, but that requires a lot of server power. Hoplon called on open source tools for its software development needs, and IBM to help it provide the bandwidth and CPU strength it requires.
I feel it is my happy duty to make all of you code less, by mentioning that the SuperTux people created a new release: 0.3.0. They apparently changed most of their rendering engine and physics code, and lots of other stuff changed with it. It looks much better than the already incredible 0.1.3 version that I played a lot.
Many small businesses have avoided Linux for a variety of reasons: not enough applications, complexity of installation or that it requires too much technical know-how to run. The technology has matured over many years, which raises the question: How valid are these considerations today?
For many in the world, it's the time of year for wrapping up the old and moving ahead with the new. That's not necessarily the case for Linux, though. For the Linux kernel, what's old is new again with the new releases of the 126.96.36.199 and 2.4.34 kernels.
An open source advocacy group has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a Microsoft Corp. case asking the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate all software patents.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been exploring two available 3D environments: Croquet and Project Looking Glass. The two projects take distinctly different approaches to their 3D environments.
Red Hat plans to ship the next version of its premium Linux product on February 28, debuting major virtualization technology but missing an earlier deadline by about two months.
Programmers have released a new version of Xen with a graphics feature that makes the virtualization software more useful on desktop computers.
To open-source or not to open-source was never in question as far as Steve Shreeve, founding CEO and largest shareholder of Medsphere Systems Corp., was concerned. So, this summer, Steve, self-proclaimed open-source software leader, and his twin-brother Scott, released the company's matured code on SourceForge under the GPL. Their reward? They were then sued for $50 million by their company.
This article, fifth in a five part “Building a CDT-based editor” series, shows how the C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT” performs code completion. Learn to understand how the CDT performs code completion. This is one of the CDT's most useful capabilities because it reduces the amount of code the user needs to type and remember.
This tutorial is about wardriving using GPS. It explains how to install Garmin Etrex on Ubuntu and how to configure it. It also shows how to use Garmin with GPSDrive and how to convert the data to an xml file which can be imported by Google Earth.
Penetration of technology has resulted in haves and have-nots of a different kind. One, those who are moving ahead in technology assimilation while others, for whom technology is still a mystical demon. Open source software could indeed act as a tool for faster and ubiquitous adoption of IT, specially for digital have-nots.

I’ve been reading through this book for a few days now. It has some good tips and it is very well written. But that is not what attracts me to O’Reilly’s “hacks” series. No, the truth is that I consider these books to be valuable treasure!
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will seek $95 million to boost technology research at California universities in the state budget. University officials said much of the research produced with the funds would be "open source."
I find the OS Agnostics are a good starting point for getting someone to TRY Free Software. Realistically, I’m unlikely to get my extended family members or friends to light-switch to a GNU/Linux or Unix based operating system. However, there is a good chance I can get them to try Firefox, Thunderbird or OpenOffice.
