Some developers in the Linux community have taken the discussion about the new General Public License terms to a contentious point: using it for the next Linux kernel, while a greater challenge over DRM looms.

Having spent the last six years overseeing the acquisition of, integration of, and partnership creation with open source software companies-and managing open source litigation, I am still surprised by how little CIOs truly understand about open source software's potential benefit and impact on their companies' fiscal and legal health.
Rubix is a Linux distribution forked from Slackware Linux. It differs from its parent in that Rubix uses Arch Linux's 'pacman' for simplified package management with dependency resolution. They released rc2 for their upcoming version 1.0 and we took it for a little spin.
Various reports are circulating stating Microsoft said today that it would disclose some of the innermost workings of Windows, its flagship operating system, to other companies. There seems to be some controversy as to how much source they intend to release. Some reports state all while other states some.
Today, with the availability of GUI-based CD creation programs such as K3B, the old command-line method write a CD-ROM is pretty much forgotten. Those GUIs are fine for building a CD from ordinary files stored on your hard disk--text, data, music and such--but sometimes you need to do the equivalent of copying a CD image onto a new CD.
Of the approximately four trillion Linux distributions out there, here's something a little different. FoX Linux Desktop 1 is an Italian-made distribution that by default runs a combination of KDE apps that make it look and feel more like OSX.
A web server should be as secure as it can be. However, you may sometimes need to quickly share the contents of a directory for web access, so you make a folder under your httpd's document root, add a simple .htaccess... and you may see the access is forbidden!
After several years' work, a team of young Linux experts from Serbia has released Atomix Linux 3.2 to the public. Considering the long development period -- more than three years -- my expectations were fairly high, but Atomix met my expectations.
Please grab beta 2 and let us know what you think. With any luck we won't need to make any major changes, and Gaim 2.0.0 final will be out before you can prove the theory of special relativity.

Generally, file systems are not considered "sexy." When a young programmer wants to do something really cool, his or her first thought is generally not "Dude, two words...File System." However, I am what is politely termed "different." I find file systems very interesting and they have seldom been more so than they are right now.
Gamers on the Linuxplatform will soon be able to join Bjarni and his friends in their mission to save their homeland from mysterious serpent creatures, as Northland Linux has gone gold and should be available by February 2nd.
Three organizations--Stanford University, Coverity, and Symantec--recently received a Department of Homeland Security grant to assist open source projects in tightening their code with automated code-checking. The question is, will this help be welcome? LinuxPlanet speaks with Coverity's CTO and founder as well as Linus Torvalds to see just how useful Coverity's defect reports have been.
I first demoed Versora Progression Desktop at LinuxWorld Boston in February of 2005, and was impressed by what it could do. Basically it takes all of your essential data and program settings (and even some decidedly nonessential settings) and transfers them to GNU/Linux. I hadn't heard much from the company since then -- until Linspire announced a partnership with them recently. The deal is, Progression Desktop will move you from Windows to Linspire without any hassle.
"We are facing fierce competition from Novell [Inc.] and Red Hat [Inc.], so we want to differentiate ourselves," said Claude Zhou, Turbolinux China's general manager, in Beijing. "We want to do something in the second-tier cities."
In this issue of Industry Insider, Seth Gottlieb, content management practice lead at Optaros, explains how one should go about selecting an open-source content management system.
"What's the best Linux desktop distribution?" Now, while some people will swear up and down that Slackware or Fedora or even Puppy, for that matter, is the best Linux desktop, I think the answer is more complicated. In fact, I don't think there is a single answer.

You might have missed it, if you want to buy products from Novell's serious SUSE Linux line -- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), Novell Linux Small Business Suite 9, and Open Enterprise Server -- you'll be paying less after March 1st.
