The purpose of this article is to introduce the reader to the idea of simultaneous contrast and to the amazing effects of color interactions. Color is the single most important tool that artists and designers used throughout the ages to beautify their environment. But to use color effectively one has to understand its basic functions, its psychological and visual impacts on the environment.
Development Release: openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 2 - Andreas Jaeger has announced the second alpha release of openSUSE 10.3: "I'm glad to announce the second public alpha release of openSUSE 10.3. Call for testing: We're using the libata stack now also for IDE controllers.
A "sizeable number" of developers have jumped ship from Novell to Red Hat, according to Scott Crenshaw, the senior director for product management and marketing at Red Hat.
As Novell kicks off its annual user conference, customers are enthusiastic about their transitions from the legacy NetWare operating system to Linux. There’s discord, however, among Novell users regarding the company’s controversial technology pact with Microsoft.
Big news about Linux has come out of France in the past month or so.
In February, French automaker Peugeot Citroen announced it would be migrating 20,000 Windows desktops to Linux. Then, just last week, the French Parliament, which had already decided to shift its administrative systems to Linux, announced the finalization of those plans.
This tutorial will show how-to install Ubuntu on a usb stick. Even though this tutorial uses Ubuntu as its base distribution, you could virtually use any type of Linux liveCD distribution.
If open source by definition means that code is open, then why is Mozilla having some of its code discussions behind closed doors? The reason is simple: to protect users.
Regular readers here know I don't say "wow" lightly. I may like a book, I may even think it's useful or even something you really should have, but very few really make my jaw drop. This is one that gets a "wow".
As you might have guessed from the title of this article, FLAC is an abbreviation of Free Lossless Audio Codec. The first word ("free") should be pretty clear (it's an open-source project), but what is a "lossless audio codec"?
Once or twice a year I look at FOSS video editing tools to see if they're ready for everyday use by advanced amateur and low-end professional video makers, which is where I classify myself in the video production hierarchy.
Last week I had the opportunity to try two new operating systems: Microsoft Vista (Home Premium) and the Ubuntu Linux distribution (6.10, Edgy Eft).
Amazon.com is the most popular online retailer. While you can, of course, access the site with any browser, developer Fabio Serra has created Mozilla Amazon Browser (MAB), a browser-based application that relies on Mozilla's XML User Interface Language (XUL) technology to implement its graphical user interface.
I’m more secure on Linux than I am on Windows. My primary desktop is on a Macbook Pro – the best computer I’ve ever owned, without any doubt. I consider myself very open-minded and will always give credit where it’s due. Heck, some of my best friends use Windows.
In 2002 the Mozilla Foundation released Mozilla 1.0, finally delivering on the promise of an open-source browser descended from the original Netscape Navigator browser code.
But while Mozilla 1.0 received many kudos from reviewers (including eWEEK Labs), it failed to make much of a dent in the 96 percent market share that Microsoft's Internet Explorer enjoyed at the time.
Penguin Pete celebrates his site's first birthday today. We congratulate him on a most excellent site. His articles are funny, intelligent, informative, gramatically correct, and sometimes controversial. I enjoy Penguin Pete's site, frequently link to it, and hope it will be around for a long time to come.
In an article on his site today he discusses the first year and his top stories:
Could Linux be the nearly perfect solution to the computing ills in China? Well, a little yes, and lots of no.
Lord knows I appreciate all the 'news submissions' I can get. In fact, I've often thought of asking around for a 'Number One' to help me run the site in that area. But I have a few notes for those submitting, especially if you've noticed your submission not published.
Written in Java and released under the GPL, iDART (intelligent Dispensing of Antiretroviral Treatment) is a pharmacy system designed for use at antiretroviral (ARV) pharmacies in the public health sector. Initially distributed only as software, it was generally implemented on machines using Windows.
Recently, we described how to copy LPs, 45s and 78s to CD using the new Crosley Songwriter CD Recorder. It's an easy-to-use, $400 nostalgia-theme piece that does the job without a computer, but the hefty price is hard to ignore. But what about the computer-savvy person who doesn't have a turntable? Or the turntable owner who doesn't want to buy the Songwriter just to turn vinyl into CD?
