Learning UNIX is a seemingly daunting task, there are thousands of commands out there, each with hundreds of options. But in reality you only need to know a few of them.
Linspire announced the first of many free services offered to desktop Linux users. FreeLinuxEmail, an IMAP email and Net file storage service developed by Messaging Engine of Melbourne, Australia, provides desktop Linux users a free server-based email and file storage service that works with both web-based and client-based email. IMAP is a superior email protocol over POP systems offered by most free email services.

X.org received a lot of attention and discussion at UDS, which is appropriate for such a desktop-focused distro. Binary drivers were a hot topic at the summit. Ubuntu developers also discussed how to provide a more robust configuration system for X.org, and what to do when problems arise with X.

TEN WELL AIMED silver bullets would take care of 80 per cent of the world's spam, according to the anti-spam organisation Spamhause. According to Security Pro News, Spamhause thinks that there are only ten people that are responsible for most of the spam in the world.
Intrusions can take place from both authorized (insiders) and unauthorized (outsiders) users. My personal experience shows that unhappy user can damage the system, especially when they have a shell access. Some users are little smart and removes history file (such as ~/.bash_history) but you can monitor all user executed commands.
Wez Furlong is Chief Architect at OmniTI, Inc. and a PHP core developer responsible for the streams abstraction layer, the PDO extension, and the SQLite extension among others. I caught up with him at the php|works conference where he presented a seminar on PHP Data Objects (PDO).
Much of the debate about open source has been in technical terms, or increasingly in political terms. I'm not criticising either approach, but I suspect many potential open source converts are left cold by discussions that border on the religious in their fervour. What many companies really need is a direct and clear discussion about the tangible benefits of open source, without the political baggage.
Since the announcement of the Novell-Microsoft agreement on November 2, we have been flooded with questions from the open source community about what this deal means to the Linux, the open source community, and even what this deal means for Novell. We will use this page to answer as many of those questions as possible. Check back frequently, as we will continue to add more answers as quickly as possible.
So here it is, just two months left in 2006, and you’re still running Windows on your computer. There must be something wrong with you, right? If you don’t have the money for a new computer (i.e. a Mac), but you still want to depart from Windows for a while, then your best bet is Linux.
Microsoft's motivation to partner with Novell was driven by a desire to create fear uncertainty and doubt (FUD) in the minds of those considering a move to Linux -- and to sell more copies of Windows, according to analysts.
The open source software movement has received a lot of press coverage in recent years. A result of this is many people associating the term "open" with open source software. This popular definition of "openness" is incomplete. We should understand the different forms of openness and how they apply to the many facets of computers, software, systems, and even warranties and service agreements.
On November 2, 2006 the embargo for Intel's Core 2 Extreme Quad QX6700 was lifted which resulted in a slurry of reviews covering this flagship desktop processor. However, this morning happens to be an important date for Supercomputing 2006 and it serves as yet another milestone for Intel Corporation. This morning Intel will be introducing the Xeon 5300 series, or perhaps better known by its codename of Clovertown. At Phoronix we have had these processors in-house for over a week now and today are able to share our thoughts on these quad-core server/workstation processors as we test them under GNU/Linux.
D-Bus 1.0 ("Blue Bird"), the Freedesktop.org inter-process messaging system has just been released. A collaborative effort between industry and open source developers, D-Bus was created to allow arbitrary applications to easily communicate with each other and exchange data.
Sun Microsystems has opened the door to adopting the general public licence (GPL) for its Solaris operating system. Sun chief executive Jonathan Schwartz raised the option at a company event marking the release of Java SE and Java ME components under the GPL licence.
The One Laptop Per Child project's onsite supervisor, Mark Foster, reported from Shanghai on Sunday that the first 10 prototypes of the Linux-powered OLPC XO-1 are up and running. This marks a key milestone toward an upcoming build of 900 units.
Since Ubuntu 6.10 was release less than a month ago, Windows Vista went RTM and dates for new Ubuntu 7.4 were announced today, I thought I’ll post a tutorial on how to create a single boot screen triple boot system with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Ubuntu Edgy Eft.
Fighting over the same piece of the proverbial pie, Firefox introduces its version 2.0 just as Internet Explorer debuts its own version 7.0, whose previous release had been a long time coming. So just what are these improvements? And which company with come out on top for global internet browser dominance? Lets do some side by side comparison.
