I was fascinated to read about Software Freedom Day last month, where open source enthusiasts took to the streets around the world to celebrate open software. We've had freedom marches in favour of land rights, troop withdrawal and industrial relations laws, but I never realized proprietary software was in the same category as country invasions and reductions in workers rights.
I've been using Fedora Core 6 pre-release for a couple of days now, and I'm ready to write about my experience so far. Overall, there are both good and bad things about Fedora. Here are some things that I like about it:
Opera is a full-featured Internet tool, most notably a fully standard conforming Web browser. Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like a password manager, mouse gestures, native Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) support, an email program, RSS newsfeeds, and IRC chat.

You have seen many TUX stickers on the web, but I am sure you've never seen anything like this before. The best part is yet to come: you can have these stickers for free! All you have to do is run to the post office and send us a postage-paid return envelope.
How old? It's a Panasonic CF-35 with a 3G hard drive, a 266Mhz processor and little else. I insisted that what he needed to get the old girl back in the ball game was a simple Linux install. I still believe it to be true, however selecting the distro was more than I had imagined.
Ever feel like you're not getting the most out of your multiprocessor machine? The xjobs utility allows you to schedule several processes to run simultaneously to make the most of your system's resources.

It is available in English, German, French, and Italian. The readers of Linux Journal voted SuSE Linux the Reader’s Choice for Best Distribution (1/99).
openSUSE 10.2 alpha 5 was released a couple of days ago, and I've been testing various aspects since its install. Coincidently, I decided to download the dvd version this time only to find out later that it was the only format available. Quite honestly, my decision was really made by distrowatch, when it was the first link in their announcement. Forgetting that I usually do deltas, I right clicked, copied, and pasted their link into a terminal for wget. For whatever reason I chose it, DVD format is the next best way to go. It makes for a much more pleasant install than a 5 cd change-out. But more importantly, what did we find after the install?
You might think Kevin Carmony, the leader of a company trying to challenge Microsoft Windows, would be dreading the new version, with all its advanced features. But the chief executive of software vendor Linspire says he's eager for Windows Vista's debut.
KDE will ship the 5th maintenance update to KDE 3.5 next week. This release includes a bunch of bug fixes, improved language support, a new version of kopete and tons more.

This tutorial describes how to set up MySQL master-master replication. We need to replicate MySQL servers to achieve high-availability (HA). In my case I need two masters that are synchronized with each other so that if one of them drops down, other could take over and no data is lost. Similarly when the first one goes up again, it will still be used as slave for the live one.
