Last week's big story was also this week's big story. The proposed version 3 of the GNU General Public Licence, the GPL, grabbed headlines this week as every pundit worth his pencil weighed in on the subject. The verdict? Well, it's either great, seriously flawed or irrelevant.
Nigerian software vendor Leapsoft Ltd has launched a new Linux distribution, Wazobia Linux, aimed at meeting the needs of consumers, businesses, education, and government in West Africa.
I've been working as a Linux admin for more than six years, and using Linux for a little longer. Like a lot of Linux administrators, I started with Red Hat, but now I use Debian stable at work and Gentoo at home. Recently, NewsForge asked readers to "let us know about your most valuable utilities." Here are mine.
The Free Standards Group (FSG), the non-profit group behind the Linux Standard Base (LSB), has announced that Debian Linux founder Ian Murdock will be its new CTO (chief technology officer) and will chair the LSB workgroup.
Malicious hackers are increasingly targeting security vulnerabilities in open-source software that runs bulletin boards and online forums, according to Internet monitoring firm Netcraft.
If you're fed up with Microsoft's domination of the browser market and want to experience new features like tabbed browsing before Internet Explorer 7 hits the streets, then here's a round-up of some of the more popular alternatives available and the ones that I have on my system...
As anticipated, VMware has created a free version of its server partitioning software in the hopes of drawing new customers to its technology. In addition, the move counters open source rival XenSource, which gives away core server virtualization technology known as a hypervisor.
Ah, sweet, sweet caffeine. Whether your chosen delivery device is a Triple Red Eye from Starbucks or a liter of Mountain Dew, nothing beats the gentle jolt into full wakefulness provided by the humble C8H10N4O2 molecule. In a cruel twist of fate, some people are unable to brew a pot of coffee, a latte, or figure out how to open a can of Mountain Dew right after waking up, due to that very same lack of caffeine. What's a caffeine-loving geek to do?
I'll be honest with you. After, Peter Quinn, Massachusetts's CIO, resigned from pressure that he believed could largely be traced back to Microsoft, I didn't think the ODF (OpenDocument Format) had a chance in heck of making it into the state's offices.
It turns out I may be wrong.
Securing enterprise Linux desktops against hostile code has gotten easier, thanks to Ingo Molnar's work on the NX enabler patch in Linux kernel 2.6.8 and processor-based, page protection mechanisms. The trick is in the execution, and, as usual, the Microsoft way probably is not the right choice.
Most Linux-based distributions for the masses have either GNOME, KDE, or both desktops, yet the startup times and resources required by both GNOME and KDE make them unsuitable for old or lower-end hardware. My quest for a standards-compliant, fast, lightweight, and extensible window manager led me to Openbox.
Bill Gates was recently named one of Time's "Persons of the Year" for his foundation's work in bringing vaccines to the poor. But bringing laptops running Linux to the poor - he's opposed to it. This week's op-ed piece looks at the two faces of Bill Gates.
Gather round the hearth, young nerdlings and I will tell you a tale...just let me settle my creaking bones into my rocking chair, let me wipe my rheumy eyes and nose - there, that's better. Now pass me my ear trumpet. Do give me a little prod if I nod off or my voice wavers too much. Are we all settled in now? Yes? Marvellous! Now let me tell you about ftp upload.
Migration from Windows to Linux has always been one of those tasks that we've all been able to perform from one extent to another, but it hasn't been simple has it? Sure, it can be done, but can it be done easily? That is the ultimate question.
