Hitting the web a few days ago was the first release candidate for the multimedia GL edition of Dreamlinux 2.2. This new release is built against the Debian testing repository, the multimedia plugins and codecs have been updated, and this release also includes Beryl 0.2 final. This release does also include the latest proprietary drivers from NVIDIA and ATI.
Well it’s been a year since I gave up Windows for a life of Linux and was I wise to embark on such a voyage?
The Debian Project is pleased to announce the official release of Debian GNU/Linux version 4.0, codenamed etch, after 21 months of constant development. Debian GNU/Linux is a free operating system which supports a total of eleven processor architectures and includes the KDE, GNOME and Xfce desktop environments.
If you run Linux and install free software, you won’t have to worry about this ever again!
One of the most exciting of many projects under way at R Cubed Technologies is the Multiplied Linux Desktop Strategy.
Working with one of its partners, Omni Technologies of Canada, R Cubed has developed a system that allows up to 10 students to work at the same time with a single Linux PC. Novell Equipment runs the multiplied software.
Funny thing, I noticed this because someone complained about encountering the side-effects of Microsoft patents on ClearType in... openSUSE 10.2!
James Ots noticed that Sub-pixel Antialiasing in openSUSE 10.2 seems to be broken, so he recompiled the package from sources, with sub-pixel antialiasing turned on.
Head of TCI Research Center said here Friday, “pursuing the Persian Linux Project, or the open text software project, is no longer a priority for this center.”
In Web 2.0 terms a "mashup" is a website that combines content from a variety of sources in order to give users an integrated experience. You can achieve something similar using the vast variety of hidden utilities in Linux - and you don't even need to be a programmer!
The open source real-time strategy game project Globulation 2 has been updated to release 0.8.22. Changes in this release includes:

audit2allow is a nice tool for understanding AVC denials. On RHEL4, all AVC denials are logged to the kernel ring buffer. The command dmesg will show these, and audit2allow -d will interprit them, and output the SELinux rules needed to allow these denials.
Many years ago when this project was first started, it was called "GTK+ AOL Instant Messenger." AOL naturally complained, and Mark Spencer changed the name to "Gaim." Around the time of Gaim's first 2.0.0 beta, AOL came back into our lives in a very strong way, this time threatening to sue Sean.
Kubuntu is one of the biggest KDE-based distributions out there right now. And it has a reason to be. Beautiful, powerful, easy-to-use, and easy to install are just a few things that come to mind. I tested out the latest beta, 7.04 Feisty Fawn, scheduled to ship on April 19th. Here’s what I found:
There are still a few bugs to work out, but Texstar has posted, "We are going to do a quick TR4 with an updated kernel/hal and then a final right after provided the kernel works out a little better. Whatever is still outstanding, we'll work on providing fixes via rpm updates as time allows."
Some of the issues the team is still working on include (updated to denote progress):
While we all wait for Windows Vista to bring the "Wow" and Apple Inc. to drop its Leopard, it's a good time to examine what might make a next-generation computer desktops really cool.
One thing is certain; your next desktop will be more 3D and have task-juggling capabilities to satisfy even the most ADD among us.
Beryl gives you four desktops to mess up.
It's been a busy winter for Microsoft's four-lawyer patent litigation team. On Feb. 10, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in AT&T v. Microsoft to determine whether the software giant is responsible in the United States for its patent infringement overseas. It was Microsoft's first appearance before the justices.

So you just installed linux and is wondering for a good rule set for a secure firewall which does not interfere with your basic internet usage? Well no difficult at all…The following configuration is good to be implemented for a Workstation.
First lets flush all the previous iptables rules:
[root@linux ~]# iptables -F
[root@linux ~]# iptables -X
[root@linux ~]# iptables -t nat -F
I’ve started using Foresight Linux in my newly-resurrected Toshiba laptop with very good results. The very clean and unadulterated GNOME desktop, along with the new Conary software management tool were enough reasons to try it out and I could say its something I would use for a long time.
