The first non-C++ application in KDE's SVN has been moved from the playground module to Extragear. Guidance is a number of system configuration modules and a laptop power manager.
So far, I have been focusing this series of articles on the Linux angle of things, instead of the sports angle. So today, let's take a look at our racing team. Before I do, I want to make perfectly clear that I have nothing against the driver, the driver's team and company, or the Indy 500 in general.
The upcoming X.Org release will largely improve the monitor handling regarding to hot plugging. This is especially important for Laptop users. You can already test these abilities with the current Fedora Live test CDs.
Much like most of the distributions that I come to me via recommendation, Lunar was out of left field. I'd never heard of it and didn't understand why it existed.
After reading the introduction article (which is offered as part of the install process, not unlike Gentoo's documentation) I found that Lunar was an ancestor of Sorceror Linux, a source-based distro.
Two patches have been added to Firefox code recently that will improve content blocking as soon as mid May, the estimated release date for Firefox 188.8.131.52.
Now that Mandriva 2007 Spring has been released and the corrupted Mandriva Cooker subversion repository has been fixed, development for Mandriva 2008 has started now. Some things which I have on my wishlist for Mandriva 2008:
While preparing for my presentation to the staff of the Sun.Star website last week, I was a bit worried whether Ubuntu Feisty Fawn would detect and work with the office’s LCD projector.
Three years after it burst onto the operating system scene, the Debian-based Ubuntu Linux has entered its sixth generation with the release of 7.04 dubbed "Feisty Fawn" globally today.
Feisty Fawn is distributed as both a desktop and server edition.
Currently there is a discussion about a new theme for debian.org going on on -www. Some people presented their ideas and build some mockups while others commented them.
I strongly suggest to let some professional designers and other (not necessarily Debian related) talented people create some mockups, to avoid moving from one outdated and rusty design to the next.
Java is an object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in the early 1990s. Java applications are compiled to bytecode, which at runtime is either interpreted or compiled to native machine code for execution.
Lately I have been blogging that I am an Ubuntu Fan and use both Ubuntu and Mac. The story was that after 20 years of struggling with Microsoft, after a major crash of my Lenovo that left me without access to my data for five days I was ready for something new. I experimented both with Mac and Ubuntu and liked both for different reasons and now I used both at my office.
If you think whiz-bang graphical effects are limited to Windows Vista or Mac OS X, think again. The Linux distro Sabayon features some impressive desktop animations complete with whirling, rotating 3D cubes and rippling, bendable window elements that put both Windows Vista and OS X to shame.
Microsoft recently unveiled Silverlight, their answer to Adobe's Flash. While the most obvious thing about Silverlight has already been addressed (missing Linux support), another will be the upcomming battle between MS and Adobe. By positioning Silverlight directly as a competitor to Flash, Microsoft has already started the first round of what could become a battle between Silverlight and Flash.
One of the great strengths of the Mozilla project is the dedication of its participants. Many people participate over a period of years - sometimes as volunteers, sometimes as employees - figuring out new ways to contribute.
Ingo Molnar [interview] released a new patchset titled the "Modular Scheduler Core and Completely Fair Scheduler". He explained, "this project is a complete rewrite of the Linux task scheduler.
A short list of things you might back up before moving to Feisty. This isn’t to suggest you’ll have problems, but if you’re planning a clean install (which I highly recommend), or if things don’t go as you intend, it would be good to have these on an external drive or a networked machine.

Well, hasn't this been an interesting week. To say that the Linux Community lacks passion is akin to saying Van Gogh didn't like stars. In any event, and regardless of your personal feelings about the Tux500 project or mainstream advertising for Linux, most of the people we talk to agree.
Last month the AMD Catalyst Control Center Linux Edition had entered the world with mixed opinions by the ATI/AMD Linux user community. In our 8.35.5 Linux driver review we had looked at the Linux version of the Catalyst Control Center quite extensively. This new control center replaced the old fireglcontrolpanel and in our opinion was a huge move for AMD.
It was interesting to see the comments which Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols made about the Debian project recently. Interesting, because they resulted in a rejoinder from a Debian developer, Thaddeus Black - not a particularly prominent person in the project, not the leader.
Last week, two years since its last major release, the CentOS project released version 5 of its enterprise-focused Linux distribution. I downloaded it and put it to the test, and found that CentOS 5 has maintained its tradition of robustness and reliability while adding new features like virtualization.
