Many people who attended last week's LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston are able to provide a comparison of it to previous years' shows. But I'm not one of them, as it was my first LinuxWorld--although I'm sure I wasn't the only first-timer there.
Microsoft eventually dusted the competition by offering good enough technology, superior pricing and attractive bundling. At its recent Brainshare conference, Novell demonstrated a beta version of its latest Linux release. This new Linux rips a page out of Microsoft's good-enough playbook.
I always thought that SCO would have something to show the court with its claims that IBM, or its subsidiary Sequent, violated its Unix licensing contracts in 217 separate areas.
I was wrong.
The KOffice team is proud to announce KOffice version 1.5. With this release, KOffice starts its ascent into the office suite hall of fame. This version sports OpenDocument as the default file format, accessibility, a new project planning tool KPlato, professional color support and adjustment layers in Krita and the long awaited Kexi 1.0.
Red Hat's Fedora Core 5, which hit the Internet late last month, shines in the server and developer roles with which Linux has come to be identified. In addition, for many scenarios, Fedora has matured enough to perform well as a mainstream corporate desktop.
Linux is growing along with the wheat, barley, chickpeas, and lupins in Perenjori, a small shire in Western Australia, thanks to a man named Barry Kauler (the man behind Puppy).
A bill "requiring state agencies to use open data formats" has been introduced in the Minnesota state legislature.
Sometimes, keeping up with kernel releases can be a challenge. 18.104.22.168 has just been released with yet another security fix (for a local denial of service vulnerability).
Analysts weigh in on whether Oracle and IBM will now turn their backs on Red Hat, and what that might mean for HP, Novell and the open-source community.
The numbers of SMB manufacturers turning from UNIX to open source operating systems seems to be increasing. One thing driving this is the increasing availability of ERP application suites ported to Linux.
Yesterday Mepis announced the alpha1 release of SimplyMEPIS 6.0. This is the first release publically available for Mepis after integrating some Ubuntu components into their system. As with many alphas, there wasn't enough changed from the last stable release to cause massive instability. There were just a few changes and new goodies in store for the user in this release. Tuxmachines downloaded and installed it last night. What did we find?
I'm a student who does freelance PHP coding and pixel art. I've always wanted a dedicated computer for my work, but that would take a considerable investment on a student's income. I found the perfect solution in the pairing of an older Compaq Deskpro and Damn Small Linux (DSL).
I recently acquired a 256MB USB pendrive that I use for storing personal documents and work-related stuff. As a Linux fan who wanted to make the most of his new toy, I went looking for the simplest, smallest distro I could find that could boot from a pendrive. I found Debian-based Damn Small Linux, whose long list of bundled applications fits into a meager 50MB. The more I use it, the more I like it.
Novell may be passionately evangelising Linux and Open Office on the desktop but more than half of its own employees can still boot Microsoft Windows and Office if they wish.
For those of you who don't know Gentoo/BSD is a relatively unheard-of project with aims of merging both Gentoo Linux and the BSD systems respectively into one operating system. The project, which is sponsored by Gentoo Linux, has goals of creating a hybrid operating system using BSD underlyings, such as the kernel and system libraries, with Gentoo's portage system, administration facilities and design principles integrated on top.
A RealNetworks vice president voiced a few inflammatory opinions during LinuxWorld Boston last Tuesday. The RealNetworks rep in question, Jeff Ayars, said that Linux as a consumer platform would be dead unless DRM capabilities are built into the OS itself.
ELF (Executable and Linkable Format) is a standard file format for most executables, shared libraries and object codes. This format was developed with a clear objective to provide the developers a set of binary interface definitions that works on multiple operating systems. This would reduce the need of recoding and recompiling the code.
The third stable update to the 2.6.16 kernel is out. There does not appear to have been an announcement as of this writing, but the changelog shows that 22.214.171.124 consists of a single patch for what appears to be a local denial of service vulnerability in the key management code.
