FlightGear is a multiplatform, GPLed flight simulator. It is sophisticated, realistic, and extensible. You can choose to fly more than 100 different aircraft, ranging from a Sopwith Camel to a UFO, you can take off and land from thousands of airports, and you can fly over virtually any terrain in the world. After 10 years of development, it has suddenly become a very hot item. How hot? You may have seen it used recently on prime time TV and not realized it. It was used in an episode of Fox TV's legal drama Justice to prove pilot error in the fatal crash of a private plane.

It looks like the education space could be the first, real place where Linux could grab beachhead in the desktop PC market. Take a look at Indiana, for example. In about a year State of Indiana education officials have moved at least 22,000 students from Windows-based desktops to Linux-based desktops. I wanted to find out for myself so I put Linux to the test with the two most demanding public school students I know -- my own kids.

Of all computer problems, the unresponsive hang is the most annoying and most difficult to trace. There's no crash, no panic: everything just stops dead. The keyboard is useless, telnets just time out - you have no choice but to power cycle the machine.
About a month ago I first installed Kubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) on one of my home office machines. I really liked it. Last week, I decided to ditch the old version of Mandriva I've been running for about 18 months on my primary machine, a Toshiba laptop, and give Kubuntu a try there too. This time using the latest version, 6.10, otherwise known as Edgy Eft.
Having been raised on DOS and the early generations of Windows, I rediscovered that sense of excitement in a pure computing experience when I first tried other Linux versions over the years. However, they required a steep learning curve and caused too much frustration with setup and obscure command-line options. Not so with Ubuntu Linux.
The growing fallout over the Novell-Microsoft deal has prompted Novell to roll out its big guns for the first face-to-face debate on the merits of the deal and the implications for the free software community.
Since XFCE 4.4 will not no longer be able to advertise its low system requirements, I suppose we're entitled to expect more of it, right? There is an "official" Xfce Wish List, but here are my own annoyances with Xfce.
My friend and yours, AusImage, has tidied up the Ubuntu Open Week logs into this nice collection of formatted logs. There is some incredible content, help and tips in there about all aspects of contributing to Ubuntu.
As Ron Hovsepian approaches the six-month mark as Novell’s CEO, it’s difficult not to be impressed with his leadership of what had been a floundering, faltering fiasco under the stagnant watch of former CEO Jack Messman. And nowhere has that leadership been demonstrated more impressively than in the technology collaboration agreement Novell reached with Microsoft last month.

A few years back I stumbled across Flightgear. It is a free flight simulator, and seems to offer a pretty compelling experience. Although it intrigued me, I had no interest in learning to fly, so it washed right over me. Well, recently, I have been considering learning to fly, so I started looking into Flightgear. You know, its a stunning project.
Next April, the Ubuntu Foundation will complete three years and six releases of its GNU/Linux distribution. It will also be the point at which the project begins to acquire a distinctly commercial hue.
