Linux may be the catalyst that boosts sales of blade servers in India. As vendors such as IBM, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and Dell grapple with new strategies to sell the sleek and expensive blade servers, the Linux operating system (OS) is the trump card they play to win over cost-conscious Indian IT buyers.
Aaron Seigo reports, "If you haven't seen the red hat summit videos yet, it's worth the download and your time. both cory doctorow and eben moglen deliver truly thought provoking and inspiring bits on freedom. red hat is a company that truly does grok the concepts of free software."
Two short blogs report the ease and success of Sunday Ubuntu upgrades. One states, "smoothest major upgrade ever - Linux or Windows!" Another says, "worked like a charm."
An operating system kernel is the piece or pieces of software that is responsible for servicing resource requests from applications and the management of resources. To generalize, kernels use a system call (or syscall) interface to handshake with applications.
If you would like to compare FreeBSD and Linux, then keep in mind following points: SMP support, Reliability/robust, Performance, Security, Filesystem, and Support (community and vendor).
Adoption and growth in Asia-Pacific is far more expansive than many news stories convey. In this article, I hope to present the depth and substantial planning that goes into a national OSS I.T. strategy -- with Malaysia being an excellent example.
Today is a red letter day for me. I have used Linux for several years always wired, never wireless (except for my Zaurus). Today dawns a new beginning.
The idea behind this conference centers around the need to explore how existing technology can be adapted or rebuilt to meet the needs of developing nations. What I want to know is, will Berkley and Microsoft be exploring the FOSS options when the research is being bankrolled by the fudslingers?
Jeff Dike is the creator and maintainer of User Mode Linux (UML) - a virtual machine which runs on Linux. Jeff very kindly agreed to take time off from his important work schedule to give answers to my queries.
At the GNOME Foundation we are conducting a little, informal study of how we can make your lives easier. If you are in charge of the technical part of a GNOME deployment, we would greatly appreciate it if you could take the survey.
The frenzy to deliver server virtualization solutions has produced remarkable successes, but significant gaps remain in management tools needed to optimize those solutions, industry analysts and enterprise users say.
You might have read that ext2/ext3 has support for so called "directory indexes", which supposedly speed up operations on directories with many files. However, this feature is not enabled on most machines.
Last week's column was basically a rant about things that bothered me about Ubuntu's GNOME/Linux combination. Besides the usual 'I do not experience the problems you have, so you must be an anti-GNOME troll!' and of the course the ever-present 'How on earth can you complain about Free software!', it did what is was supposed to do: bring problems under developer's direct attention (for instance, Evolution's UI maintainer emailed me, asking for more clarification). Now it's Apple's turn. Here is a list of problems I find the most annoying about Apple's Mac/MacOS.
Who wouldn't trust a company that hid built-in spyware on every Windows-based PC in the land?
It turns out that Microsoft's Genuine Advantage anti-piracy program is also keeping daily tabs on Windows users. Who knew?
Europeans have a deep appreciation of them. Even in relatively chilly Denmark, there are plenty of outdoor cafés. Narrow streets in the older quarters join in public plazas as big as football fields. We also talked about how Americans seem to have a correspondingly elevated sense of private matters. Private enterprise, for example. Perhaps, Claus suggested, that's why the Net was commercialized first in the U.S.
SimplyMEPIS v6.0 Beta 5 has been released, after the availability of Ubuntu v6.06 Dapper Drake LTS, for which MEPIS is now based upon rather than the Debian pool. A few other changes can be found in SimplyMEPIS 6 Beta 5, which we have visually covered today.
In Gnome, it is possible to tag files and folders with small icons called emblems. Tagging files with visual cues like these will help a person to find the particular file much easily.
