Hardware

purinchu.net: Grandma goes to the store to see about replacing the computer with something inexpensive. Really inexpensive. After a bit more asking the clerk goes, “Well, we do have 1 machine in the back. Every store has only gotten one, but it’s only $200. Of course, it turned out that it runs Linux.

DKMS support arrives at the common desktop

Filed under
Linux

liquidat.wordpress: While today many kernel modules are shipped in the vanilla kernel and some missing ones (like uvc) are added later on by the distributors, some kernel modules are not shipped yet and might never be shipped with the mainline kernel. Now, several years after DKMS was first introduced to the world it finally starts to appear at different places.

Practical Linux home security

Filed under
Linux

itwire.com: Most all modern home computer users are switched on to the fact they have to protect their computer from nasties: anti-virus, anti-spam, firewalls have all entered the common vernacular. If you don’t use 'that' operating system from Redmond though does this still apply? And what packages should you use?

Filed under
Linux

Josh Saddler: I wiped Gentoo off my old Toshiba laptop a couple of nights ago, and have been trying out binary distros with a smaller-is-better philosophy. I need a distro that is lightweight, mostly self-contained, yet also has a decent package repository for the edge cases. So far I've been through Fluxbuntu, TinyMe, and SliTaz.

Filed under
OOo

itreviews.co.uk: The maturity of OpenOffice is fast winning over many of those still deep-rooted in a Microsoft Office way of working, and while this latest release isn't likely to tip too many more over the edge, it's a further move forward in the quest to be accepted as the legitimate alternative that it already is.

While we're all waiting for PCLOS 2008 to be released, we were treated to a kissing cousin yesterday with the release of TinyMe 2008.0. It's a small lightweight distro featuring the LXDE desktop with lots of handy apps. I thought I'd take it for a little test run this evening to see what it might be like.

Why I Still Prefer KDE3

Filed under
KDE

vivapinkfloyd.blogspot: I tested KDE 4.0 in Kubuntu 8.04 Remix edition. I know it's probably not the best distribution to test the relatively new KDE 4.0, but that was what I had available at the moment. It didn't made a good impression to me though. I'm currently using KDE 3.5.9 with Debian Lenny and I'm so happy with it, and some of the reasons which still make me stick to it are:

Dale Raby: How do you Fedora?

Dale started using Linux around 1999 when he became disconcerted with his Windows 95 computer and a young clerk in an office supply store told him about Linux. “I started reading some of the magazines, most notably Maximum Linux and eventually got to know their senior editor, Woody Hughes and Show Me the Code columnist Mae Ling Mak,” said Raby. His first distribution was Mandrake 6.5 which came in a box with a boot floppy. Raby manages a small gun shop in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is also an author with four published books: The Post-Apocalyptic Blacksmith, 777 Bon Mots for Gunslighers and Other Real Men, The Wives of Jacob I, and In the Beginning. Read more
