I keep getting asked about Google’s “distribution of Ubuntu”, so perhaps this is a good place for me to say that as far as I’m aware there is absolutely no truth to the rumour that Google plans to distribute a derivative of Ubuntu as a Google OS.

I like life simple, and I despise discovering hidden complexities behind mundane tasks. I want minimal effort to yield huge impact -- and that's what I get from the Mandriva PowerPack 2006. I can perform installation, setup, update management, and routine tasks without having to fiddle, tweak, or even think.

In the past 30 years, Linux legend Jon "maddog" Hall has worked at more technical jobs and taught more students about the technical aspects of IT than he probably cares to remember. One thing he does remember, however, is his nickname, given to him by his students at Hartford State Technical College, in Connecticut. It's a name the ageing, bearded guru has come to enjoy.
Think of all the ways you interact with a computer each day. Any action you take, or even don't take, conveys some meaning. For example, when listening to your music collection, you might sometimes skip songs. What does that mean? There are a number of possibilities. Maybe you do not like the song that was playing, or it does not suit your current mood, or, possibly, you've listened to this song too much and would rather it be played less often. Is it possible to build a system that uses this information to learn which music you prefer and play it more often?

This is just a short note by way of encouragement for anyone who has considered making their notebook dual-bootable but either been daunted by the prospect or just hasn't got around to it. At the risk of making myself look like the village technological idiot, I spell out some details and try to make the writeup entertaining.
Google and CodeWeavers Inc. are working together to bring Google's popular Windows Picasa photo editing and sharing program to Linux. The program is now in a limited beta test. If this program is successful, other Google applications will be following it to the Linux desktop, sources say.
A U.S. Army supercomputing center with a legacy that dates to the first large computer, the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) launched in 1946, is moving to Linux-based clusters in a major hardware purchase that will more than double its computing capability.
