The Linux operating system - a free, open-source alternative to Windows and Mac OS X, has long served to define the gap between people who merely use computers and those who tinker with them. But that dividing line might be fading especially with increasing security problems for Windows.
This may be below your radar, but Raleigh-based Red Hat - known for its Linux software - has quietly launched a social networking portal that may challenge MySpace and other popular destinations.
This past Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of one of the keystones of the modern Internet-the Linux operating system.
Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth has apologised for a faulty patch last week that left thousands of users without a graphical user interface - a particularly acute problem for a distribution that specialises in ease of use.
Like cold fusion or a painless weight-loss plan, a user-friendly version of Linux remains elusive. But developers are getting closer with Ubuntu -- a free, Linux-based operating system that appeared in October 2004 and is winning over waves of converts, including high-profile geeks like Cory Doctorow.
Debian makes heavy use of it's bug-tracking system, (BTS) to coordinate work, and for developers to know that a problem needs fixing. This article is aimed at those who haven't seen the BTS before, or know who have used it a little, but would like to know about how to manipulate bugs.
We all know that the so called "war" between KDE and GNOME has been raging now for a long time. Unfortunately, this competition seems to have fractured the Linux community into two (and more) warring camps, neither able to give an inch between them.
The GNU General Public License (GPL) is one of the most widely used software licenses -- and, undoubtedly, the most misunderstood. Some of this misunderstanding comes from hostile propaganda, but some also comes from a lack of experience. In all cases, the confusion is frequently based on misreadings, rumors, secondhand accounts, and what is convenient to believe.
The author of Hardening Linux explains why distro security can be subjective, what basic steps users can take to protect themselves from browser security flaws and why the Linux desktop is more secure than Windows.
Okay, I don't really know how many chances I've given GNOME, but I've tried to switch to GNOME as my default desktop many times. I always ended up switching back to KDE (to be fair, I use other window managers, too, such as Fluxbox, which is one of my favorites). But I've really been enjoying my GNOME experience despite the fact that there are still things about GNOME that I dislike.
LDAP--Lightweight Directory Access Protocol--is a protocol that stores and retrieves information from a directory, which for both OpenLDAP and Fedora Directory Services is stored in a Berkeley DB.

LixSystems has introduced a low-cost Linux powered home theater PC (HTPC) packaged in a compact, consumer electronics-style enclosure. The Lx8100-MN, available "barebones" (sans CPU, memory, and hard drive) for around $300, offers quiet operation and is supplied with an easily-installed Fedora 5-based system image on DVD.
When Linux was in its infancy, hardware support was one of the biggest issues for the open source operating system. Broader support these days by major PC hardware and peripheral manufactures has made the Linux hardware compatibility more widespread, but no one's claming "mission accomplished" on this yet.
The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project reported Aug. 27 that Brazil is finalizing plans for "all aspects" of its $100 laptop roll-out. Along with Argentina, Nigeria, and Thailand, Brazil had previously indicated interest in purchasing 1 million of the machines for needy children.
