OOo Off the Wall: The Elephant in the Living Room -- OOo and MS Office

Filed under
OOo

For OpenOffice.org (OOo), MS Office (MSO) is the elephant in the living room. As much as the project might want to ignore MSO, it cannot. Many potential users never have used anything except MSO, and most have to share files with MSO users at some point.

Book Review: Linux Patch management - Keeping Linux systems up to date

Filed under
Linux

It is a waste of time and bandwidth to individually download all the patches and security fixes for each machine. This is where this book named "Linux Patch Management - Keeping Linux systems up to date" authored by Michael Jang gains significance.

The nation's peak Linux body will informally separate some of its governance and executive functions in a move to relieve some of the pressure on its voluntary leadership.

The Rise of Real-time Linux

Filed under
Linux

New real-time Linux enhancements open a whole new world of possibilities for Linux, ranging across the latest 3G technologies and as near as the mobile handset in your pocket. The purpose of modifying the Linux kernel with real-time functionality: to dramatically reduce interrupt and task preemption latency, thus enabling the 2.6 kernel for use in high-performance multimedia applications and those requiring extremely fast, task level reliable control functions. Real-time Linux has come a long way - where is it now and where is it heading?

Tuxmachines: 4th quarter Report

Filed under
Site News

February 4th was Tuxmachines official one year anniversary. Although I put a site up and added content 6 months prior, it was static and unknown. A year ago I began putting a little content in this little cms called Drupal and we've been growing every since. Tuxmachines continued to showed some growth early part of the quarter, but perhaps has now leveled off some.

Claudio Matsuoka: Frankensystem

OS

Another post about the Lone Gunmen. Watching carefully the computer screen depicted in the last episode, it seemed to be a bit more ellaborated than your average HollywoodOS (which usually has a green 1200/75 terminal that beeps at each received character along with a spinning wireframe 3D model and a progress bar). The Gunmen OS (which I suspect is in fact MacOS 9 with Kaleidoscope) is a bit different:

Mini Review: Opera 8.5

Filed under
Software

I'm a two browser man. Or rather: I used to be. For a long time I have been using Konqueror and Opera 7 more or less concurrently, depending on the task at hand. I've always liked Opera for its polished, intuitive GUI, and the good rendering engine. However, something always made me go back to Konq, it just felt better for some tasks.

Filed under
Linux

Pentoo, a Network Security Consortium distribution based off of Gentoo, has released their Mini-Pentoo v2006.0 build. Not only is this a great LiveCD security distribution, but it comes without many of the hassles beginning Linux users have faced when attempting to run Gentoo, and of course Emerge is included. We have the Screenshots!

Degunk Linux and debunk FUD

Filed under
Reviews

Degunking Linux could easily have been called "Intermediate Linux Administration 101", but then no one would have bought it. Degunking Linux is inherently eye-catching. The title makes everyone curious. The Microsofties are thinking, "Ha! I knew that there was gunk in Linux!" and the Penguinistas are thinking, "No way. Linux doesn't have gunk." Both of those groups of book buyers will get more and less than what they hoped to find in the 320 pages of Roderick's book.

Theming Bash

HowTos

Shell themes are shell presets that, when invoked, customize the shell with various useful commands for working on a specific project. Before you can write shell themes, you need to implement an infrastructure for creating them.

SUSE Linux 10 Unleashed

Filed under
Reviews

While the book is aimed at the Linux beginner, it's certainly not aimed at those who don't know one end of an operating system from another. It's not the sort of book to recommend to friends and relatives who aren't computer literate.

Not even Peter Jackson can rescue King Kong the game

Filed under

Gaming

From an experienced gamer's point of view, I think it's even safe to say that Peter Jackson's King Kong (just King Kong from now on) fails in almost every aspect that it possibly can fail, starting from bad QC (quality control).
