One important trend highlighted by this year's research is the ongoing transition away from C and C++ -- the two languages that have been programmers' mainstays for many years -- in favor of Java, and, more recently, C#.
Massachusetts legislators assembled some of the IT industry's most powerful companies Wednesday to discuss the state's electronic document standards, a closely watched decision with significance that has stretched far beyond state boundaries.
As the joke goes, on the Internet nobody knows you’re a dog. But although anonymity has been part of Internet culture since the first browser, it’s also a major obstacle to making the Web a safe place to conduct business:
There has been a lot of confusion lately as to what's going on with the end of Linux support on the WRT54G and WRT54GS line of routers. Hopefully I'll be able to describe what's going on, what's changing, what's coming, and what you can do about it.
This is a more in-depth look at the fascinating interchange between Linus Torvalds and Chris Blizzard on the Desktop Linux (public) mailing list concerning user-interfaces.
In many ways, OS X is what Linux would be with a great GUI. Likewise, Linux is in some ways what OS X could be. For all its strengths, OS X does allow tasks to so dominate the OS that everything else stops while the beach ball spins.
Searching for a massively powerful digital system to help researchers grapple with complex tasks like forecasting weather and simulating particle interactions? Look to an enormous, well-funded organization. Or on a desktop.
It's been a long, bad year for politicians, petrol prices and proprietary software. But 2005 was an exceptional year for open source software. It really found its feet this year, and I think it also started to cement a new façade that will serve it well for years to come.
If you thought the security holes in Internet Explorer were large enough to push a G-class star through, then you haven't seen anything yet.
The vice president of the dominant Linux supplier in China says government support is creating opportunities for desktop Linux to grow. Zheng shared some of his views on Linux, open source and China's IT future in a rare, candid interview with eWEEK senior editor Darryl K. Taft last week in Beijing.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has stepped into a desktop war, expressing a preference for the K Desktop Environment over GNOME, and accusing the developers of the latter project of being "interface nazis".
The One Laptop per Child (OLPC) board of directors today announced that Quanta Computer Inc. of Taiwan was chosen as the original design manufacturer (ODM) for the $100 laptop project.
The decision was made after the board reviewed bids from several possible manufacturing companies.
Some observers contend that all the kinks are triggered by Korea’s heavy reliance on the proprietary Windows software. Instead, they argue the country should promote the use of open-source programs like Linux.
The use of Linux and other open source software in Australia and New Zealand is miles behind North America, according to tech research company Forrester.
So we have to admit that we didn't have high hopes for Linux Quick Fix Notebook; the title is uninspiring and makes it sound like another book promising expertise without effort. But this is far from the truth and, contrary to what we expected, this is a book that can easily be recommended.
When many other linux distributions were bogged down in dependency hell, Debian users were shielded from these problems owing to Debian's superior package handling capablities using apt-get.
Here I will explain how to go about using this package handling utility to get the results that you desire.
It all started, like most family fights, with a little incident that was blown out of proportion.
How much RAM does your PC have? If you run Windows XP, it is probably in the range of 512 MB to 1 GB. Older Windows versions will do the job with less than that, but as soon as you execute demanding applications or more than one application at a time, anything below 512 MB will likely translate into performance bottlenecks.
