There is a syndrome that has lately been plaguing the "Big 4" proprietary vendors.
I will call it the "Acquisition/Confusion Syndrome." It can be severely damaging, and anyone exposed to it is susceptible to infection.
The point of exposure occurs when a "Big 4" vendor acquires a smaller, focused start-up in the hopes of expanding their offerings to their customers.
The latest version of Opera's Web browser lets visitors see mini versions of their nine favorite sites at a glance. Click on any thumbnail to load the full site.
The Speed Dial feature also lets people access the site by typing its corresponding numeral -- 1 to 9 -- in the address bar.
"Speed Dial is a fresh way to call up the top sites you enjoy throughout the day."
IBM's DB2 has long been a Linux-friendly, cross-platform database. But as of this week, there will be improved coexistence between DB2 and the latest Ubuntu 6.06 Linux release.
The latest IBM database will now download and deploy easily from the Ubuntu desktop. If users want DB2, they can go to the download site, and Ubuntu automates the download and installs it.
Open-source security tools abound, so take advantage of them and avoid paying for commercial products if open source fits your needs. That was the message from Matthew Luallen, president of consulting firm Sph3r3, who spoke at the recent InfoSec Conference.
After a short delay due to a heavy dosage of Real Life(tm), I return to bring you more on the technologies behind KDE 4. This week I am featuring Strigi, an information extraction subsystem that is being fully deployed for KDE 4.0.
As the launch of Ubuntu "Feisty Fawn" 7.04 draws near, proponents of the Linux operating system (OS) are predicting much wider adoption of it in server environments.
Bolstering that belief is Canonical Ltd.'s -- Ubuntu's corporate sponsor -- promise that the OS's existing server functionality would be better marketed in 2007.
IDG World Expo, the leading producer of world-class tradeshows and events has announced that attendee registration for LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2007 is now open.
If you’re already involved in the KDE promotional community, would like to get involved, or you’re just plain nosey: we welcome you to join us at 1700 GMT April 15th on IRC #kde-promo on irc.freenode.net. Of course, you’ll also want to pay attention to details on our mailing list.
This meeting will be the first in a series; we’ll be meeting every second Sunday on IRC going forward.
Here’s the scenario. You’ve got a 6.10 box with Automatix2 installed, which you’ve used to install a number of third party additions to your nice, shiney Ubuntu box. Now you want to upgrade from 6.10 to 7.04 but you’re a bit gun shy as you recall what it was like to update to 6.10.
So what’s it going to be like this time? Let’s find out!
There's a TON of (mis)information out there that is touting the demise of PCLinuxOS and other such erroneous statements. To combat this, I'm making a nice little FAQ for everyone so that they are up to date on information having to do with PCLinuxOS.
Though the final release of the open source GPL version 3 license is still likely several months away, software vendors are already ramping up their efforts to help track violations.
While the new license is intended to help extend and protect software freedom, there are at least two software vendors that are likely to profit from GPL version 3.
This would not be the open source decade without Google.
Everyone who cares knows that Google's giant server farms run Linux. The company freely offers APIs for its most interesting features, it contributes to a wide variety of open source projects, and it will host a Developer Day on May 31 at 10 company offices around the world.
We all know about the rampant spam email problem. Nearly all of the potential solutions offered for it are based on the idea of the mail server receiving messages, classifying them as either spam or legitimate, and then processing further (deleting or forwarding messages) as appropriate. The problem with this strategy is that you end up using extra resources on the mail server.
Debian is one of the most common distributions in the world. With a possible total of twenty one CDs, it is also one of the biggest. As you may have gathered from the fact that this guide exists, Debian is not the easiest distribution. However, anybody that is relatively competent with computers should be able to use Debian (after all, I am!).
Gaming emulation under Linux has certainly come a long way, even in just the past few years. Compatibility is getting better, new APIs are being implemented and we are now at the point where select games run just as well under Linux as they do on Windows.
Finally! 9.2 is launched today. Thank you all for valuable help in making this happen!
9.2 is not only an important update with bug fixes and the new Speed Dial functionality, it's also a milestone in spreading Opera to new users around the world: Opera 9.2 for Windows ships with 31 languages :yes:
TransGaming has released Cedega™ 6.0. Rich with new features and functionality, ranging from improved graphics and performance to support for many new games, Cedega 6.0 remains the only commercial solution in the world that allows hundreds of triple A games to be played on the rapidly growing Linux operating system.
IT SEEMS THAT in the midst of writing our bit about installing Linux, the OS we suggested, PCLinuxOS, was choking, and may have been breathing its last gasps.
The main site is down, updates are no longer working, and my flame-box is full. It took quite a bit of searching, but I finally found several sites that are the dying throes of this, one of the best little distros going.
In November, Techalign released its Pioneer Linux distribution, based on Kubuntu, and available in several paid versions and one free version. I tested the recent Pioneer Linux Basic Release 2 (R2), which is based on Kubuntu Edgy 6.10. Apart from a few minor cosmetic changes and some additional applications, Pioneer isn't very different from a stock Kubuntu.
Dell's recent decision to ship desktops pre-loaded with Linux will have major repercussions for the operating system and its progress onto the business desktop, according to an industry analyst.
