First Look at VectorLinux SOHO 5.1.1 Deluxe

Filed under
Reviews

When you think of Linux, what distribution comes immediately to mind? The answer will most likely be different depending on whom you ask, and for different reasons. For me, it's Slackware Linux. The reason is that it's not only the oldest surviving Linux distribution on the planet, but it's also one of the best desktop distributions going... in my book at least. With that being said, I introduce to you VectorLinux.

Filed under

Even as the hype and hoopla surrounding the release of Internet Explorer 7.0 continues to circulate online, it is Firefox, which is quietly doing a great job and is in fact generating more interest that anything that is on the anvil from Redmond at the moment.

I'll tell you one thing about the Southern California Linux Expo: there is certainly no shortage of enthusiasm amongst the attendees. During Aaron Seigo's talk this morning on the progress of the KDE 4 desktop, specifically the Plasma prject he is working with, I nearly fainted from lack of food.

This Week's Open Source Round Up

Filed under
OSS

Looks like a theme for 2006 is beginning to emerge: Intellectual property issues. Not only was GPL3 still a hot topic this week, but we found a very ambitious open source project completely laid out on the tiles due to fear of infringement. One thing seems certain: Open source isn't going to be putting the lawyers out of business any time soon.

Filed under
Microsoft
Reviews

A few days ago, Microsoft released a preview version of Internet Explorer 7. The program is Firefox warmed over. An Opera browser that doesn't quite hit the same high notes. At most, IE 7 puts Microsoft on par with its rivals.

Filed under
HowTos

The problem is people even do not know how Linux or UNIX understands (knows) which program to run. I think many new UNIX Sys admin also does not understand the process. The method used by SHELL is straightforward but often creates confusion for new Linux or UNIX users. Therefore, I thought it is time to document it online.

Open source review crucial

Filed under
OSS

The GPL -- perhaps the best known open source software licence -- is being rewritten. The concept of "open source" software was first put forward about 20 years ago by computer programmer Richard Stallman. It began as a philosophical notion that software should be distributed in a form that allows it to be modified by its users.
