This time they have some great new features to introduce as well as some underlying code changes to announce. All this comes together to provide the greatest Symphony OS yet.
My love/hate relationship with Thunderbird, the Mozilla Foundation's email client, continues. On the one hand, Thunderbird's a very good open-source email/Usenet/RSS client.

Creating ASCII art was never an easy job. For one, you need to have imagination and a knack for portraying things in an intelligent visually appealing manner. Now though, the perseverance part of the job of creating ASCII art has been elevated by a software called JavE.
since Kubuntu is KDE based; it comes with its own web browser called “Konqueror”. The problem that I ran into was that all our KDE applications were still using Konqueror as their browser. Here is my trial/error approach to try to figure out what setting to change.

MIT's "$100-dollar laptop" has created a huge buzz, but does it make sense for the developing world? Linux International executive director, Jon "Maddog" Hall, offered an alternative for South Africans at LinuxWorld Johannesburg on Tuesday.

“LAMP is open, and the open-source community is continually working to make it highly compatible internally. That’s why we adopted the LAMP suite,” he said. “Linux works with everything, Apache works with everything, MySQL works very well with Linux. PHP, Perl and Python will work with everything.”

Editing in Vim can be a breeze, if you know how to make use of its more advanced features. Moving around files can feel like a slog if you're stuck with the basic movement keys, but editing is effortless when you have command of marks and jumps.
In this article, I will try to explain what DDoS is, and how it can be prevented or mitigated. Many of the servers in datacenters these days are Linux-based; hence, I'm going to discuss DDoS attack prevention and mitigation for Linux servers.

As spring matures, the song birds greet the mornings of May with their music and I find that it is once again time to hand in my report on events regarding free software.
