February 4th was Tuxmachines official one year anniversary. Although I put a site up and added content 6 months prior, it was static and unknown. A year ago I began putting a little content in this little cms called Drupal and we've been growing every since. Tuxmachines continued to showed some growth early part of the quarter, but perhaps has now leveled off some.
Another post about the Lone Gunmen. Watching carefully the computer screen depicted in the last episode, it seemed to be a bit more ellaborated than your average HollywoodOS (which usually has a green 1200/75 terminal that beeps at each received character along with a spinning wireframe 3D model and a progress bar). The Gunmen OS (which I suspect is in fact MacOS 9 with Kaleidoscope) is a bit different:
I'm a two browser man. Or rather: I used to be. For a long time I have been using Konqueror and Opera 7 more or less concurrently, depending on the task at hand. I've always liked Opera for its polished, intuitive GUI, and the good rendering engine. However, something always made me go back to Konq, it just felt better for some tasks.
Pentoo, a Network Security Consortium distribution based off of Gentoo, has released their Mini-Pentoo v2006.0 build. Not only is this a great LiveCD security distribution, but it comes without many of the hassles beginning Linux users have faced when attempting to run Gentoo, and of course Emerge is included. We have the Screenshots!
Degunking Linux could easily have been called "Intermediate Linux Administration 101", but then no one would have bought it. Degunking Linux is inherently eye-catching. The title makes everyone curious. The Microsofties are thinking, "Ha! I knew that there was gunk in Linux!" and the Penguinistas are thinking, "No way. Linux doesn't have gunk." Both of those groups of book buyers will get more and less than what they hoped to find in the 320 pages of Roderick's book.
Shell themes are shell presets that, when invoked, customize the shell with various useful commands for working on a specific project. Before you can write shell themes, you need to implement an infrastructure for creating them.
While the book is aimed at the Linux beginner, it's certainly not aimed at those who don't know one end of an operating system from another. It's not the sort of book to recommend to friends and relatives who aren't computer literate.
Concurrent, provider of Linux OS has announced that Boeing has selected RedHawk Linux for use in Symtx avionics test equipment used in support of the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems' Air Force C-17 modernization program.
From an experienced gamer's point of view, I think it's even safe to say that Peter Jackson's King Kong (just King Kong from now on) fails in almost every aspect that it possibly can fail, starting from bad QC (quality control).
With all the interest in the OS and office productivity suite package, someone had to come up with a book to take IT enthusiasts along for the ride. O'Reilly Media's Exploring the JDS Linux Desktop, by Tom Adelstein and Sam Hiser, is an ideal introduction for the novice to more advanced user, especially since it is packaged with a live CD-ROM that lets you run the OS from RAM without installing it on your computer.
This last week was the Ubuntu distro sprint, where a bunch of core Ubuntu developers get locked in a bland hotel in a bland part of London (which was overcast for the whole week with no variation in weather) and told to work on things in return for Amarulla. So here's the first exciting screenshot of the new Kubuntu live CD installer.
Linux Game Publishing's port of Egosoft's X2 - The Threat has reached a new milestone with the fourth BETA release. Although there are still bugs to be fixed in the game before it ships to gaming distributors, this latest release available exclusively to the closed LGP testing community finally features ATI commercial driver support. Will this be another disappointment for the fans in red, or will this be a crucial win? We have thoroughly tested X2 - The Threat BETA 4 with various ATI Radeon cards as well as a NVIDIA GeForce 6 for comparative numbers.
Danny and Linda Lee, who are both in their mid-50s, know as much about computers as they do about gangsta rap. Yet Mr and Mrs Lee's computer at their home in Bedhampton, Hampshire, doesn't run Microsoft Windows. Nor is it a newbie-friendly Mac.
While there are many Linux users who prefer other tools for doing their patch management, yum is designed for RPM-based distributions. Its popularity has grown as Fedora Linux has adapted yum as its primary patch management tool. This chapter will help you set up and configure a yum repository for your Linux distribution.
Recently interest has been generated in making at least some of the Unix variants more user friendly and many projects have come up which aim to create a better experience for the end user both in installing and using them. One such project is PC-BSD.
The Judge hearing Google's defence against the US attorney general's subpoena for search information has delayed the hearing for two weeks.
