A while ago I wrote about an animation studio, Orange, that was in the process of making an animated short film using open source tools and once completed the movie would be available for download - free of charge, as in free beer. This has come true on 18th of May and the movie is now available for download.
The title of the animation movie goes by the name "Elephants Dream".
If you are trying to work at a command line in pretty much any Operating System, no matter if it is a GNU/Linux brand such as Ubuntu or Fedora Core, another UNIX-like system like Mac OS X or FreeBSD or even Microsoft Windows, you will most definately need a text editor sooner or later. If you are using a UNIX-like system, like GNU/Linux variants, there are many text editors that may or may not be installed. Luckily there is one de-facto standard:
Pete Macomber, a Venice-based aspiring director of commercial spots and music videos, has won the grand prize in the Firefox Flicks video contest sponsored by Mozilla Corp., the developer and distributor of the Firefox Internet browser.
Fresh after the version 10.1 release of its OpenSuSE Linux operating system, Novell users hosted an installfest in Sydney this week where a number of enterprises fired up the penguin for the first time.
I decided to try out Linux again. A couple years ago I gave SUSE Linux a shot for the desktop, and it was not quite ready for primetime. Today I thought it would be fun to try Ubuntu and Kubuntu Linux (GNOME and KDE respectively). I could not remember which I liked better, so I gave them both a shot. My setup is a Fujitsu TabNote 4020d.
Available two months ago to Club Members, Mandriva One 2006 (Final) is now free for everyone. Since I'm usually told I am too negative about recent Mandriva releases (especially with the December's 2006.1 (0.3) beta), this time I wanted to be positively impressed by Mandriva.
It was not the case.

It's not an easy task to find a vulnerable service and find an exploit for it. It's also not easy to defend against users who might want to exploit your system, if you are a system administrator. However, writing an exploit by yourself, to convert a news line from bug tracker into a working lockpick, is much more difficult.
The success of Mozilla's Firefox and Openoffice.org's productivity suite has breathed life into people's aspirations about Desktop Linux. As a result, the vast majority of articles published today focus there and ignore the strides made on the Linux server. Unlike the Linux server of the past, today's version supports rocket science and its gains far exceed those of the Desktop.
Portland, Oregon is the unlikely capital of a global software revolution. The revolution is called Open Source. And its leader? Linus Torvalds, the reclusive founder of Linux.
The Ubuntu team is proud to present the Flight 8 release of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Long Term Support). With Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Flight 8 comes many bug fixes, improved artwork and general fixes all around.
Sun Microsystems' new GNU/Linux-friendly Java license does not go far enough for Red Hat. It says Sun should have open-sourced Java instead.
Six South Africans were this afternoon the first candidates worldwide to write the brand new Ubuntu Professional certification. They wrote the exams, backed by the Linux Professional Association (LPI), during the LinuxWorld show in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I’ve recently had the pleasure (ha ha) of configuring some machines to comply with government requirements, one of which is locking users out after a specified number of authentication failures. This is really easy on windows, but on Linux it’s not as flexible out of the box. Once again, PAM saves the day.
Cuba will gradually switch to the open-source Linux operating system for its state computers, eliminating its exclusive use of Microsoft Windows, the government daily Juventud Rebelde reported Tuesday.
SOUTH African companies are being urged to adopt open source software so they can not only cut their running costs but also contribute to job creation and boost the national economy.
The amaroK team have announced the official release of amaroK 1.4, and the launch of the Fast Forward series, the cheeky successor to the well-received Airborne series.
For many people these days, Microsoft is to computing as Kleenex is to facial tissues -- practically the same thing. Microsoft probably has no problem with this, but sticking with just one supplier is not always a great idea.
