Not that long ago, a significant portion of desktop GNU/Linux enthusiasts were actively advocating GNU/Linux among Windows users. I even remember doing it myself at one point, though now I really don't care what you use on your computer as long as I don't have to use it too. I thought that sentiment was isolated to me, but lately I've seen an abrupt decline in GNU/Linux evangelism on online forums. Below are some possible reasons for this change in community thinking and behavior.
Google has released a version of Google Earth for Linux, at last. The Beta Version 4 has been tested on numerous versions of Linux, including Ubuntu, Suse, Linspire and Red Hat, and is a significant improvement to running Google Earth under Wine.
An announcement about the Venezuelan government offering free software classes was posted a mailing list I am on. To me, this is just another example of how many governments understand the advantages of free software (I mean that in both the sense of price and in the sense of freedom).
What's next? Dogs and cats marrying each other?
It almost sounds like a joke headline, but there it is: a top Microsoft executive saying complimentary things about open source.
In June 2005, Sun Microsystems released core elements of its flagship Solaris operating system as open source software, making public more than five million lines of code. The announcement sparked intense interest among developers. But, one year on, are the structures governing the OpenSolaris project fully in place and has the community embraced the offering?
Here's a quick little tour from my 5 minutes of playing with Google Earth for Linux. It's kinda neato, but not as feature complete as the windows version I played with at the U.
Want to know more about a specific location? Dive right in -- Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips. Linux version available.
In this Recipe, I'll show you how to build a mail server for your SMB clients using simple, commodity PC hardware, the FreeBSD operating system, and several pieces of freely available open-source software. At first blush, this may appear to be a daunting task. But by following the steps in this Recipe, you'll find it's not difficult at all. In fact, you should be able to build the entire setup in just a couple of hours.
If you want to dual boot Ubuntu with Windows, you'll have to partition your hard drive. It's not as hard as it sounds, and the installation program guides you through it. Otherwise, if you're happy to only run Ubuntu -- and you really should be -- let it automatically take over the whole drive.
With the recent release of Ubuntu 6.06, the second quarter release season has now come to an end. Although all big distributions are already busy finalising the feature sets for their upcoming versions -- in fact, the first development releases of SUSE, Mandriva and Fedora are expected before the end of June. If you are still undecided about which distribution to try on your system, take a good look at Fedora Core 5.
Nagios provides an advanced server and device monitoring solution. It has become the de facto standard among other service monitoring applications, and is highly competitive with the non-free ones. This article will explain why Nagios is useful, and then cover some installation concepts to help get you started.
Virtual private networks (VPN) let remote users connect back to corporate networks over encrypted links. Many VPNs are built with proprietary technology and can be tricky and expensive to set up. Let's look at two simple approaches that bring you transparency without the cost. All you need is Secure Shell (SSH) access to a server on the network you're trying to access.
How do you make a local version of Ubuntu? Get yourself a large amount of disk. Now you can start the real work.
The new remake of The Omen that hit theaters last weekend was a great disappointment. It lacked the suspense and biting "horror" found in the original.
The review we didn't want to write. It's buggy, it's unreliable, and it's definitely not polished. Dapper Drake doesn't deliver as promised. Now where did I put that copy of Suse 10.1?
It's been great fun exploring Linux distros with Parallels Workstation. Download an ISO, fire it up with Parallels and off we go. Damn Small Linux was the first distro to give me a hard time.
SUSE 10.1 came out on May 11 and we've been putting through it's paces. Novell has released a solid update to their flagship operating system.
eBox management tool will effectively and easily help you managing the advanced services for your corporate network. eBox is a framework for the development and deployment of network services in small and medium-sized networks, offering a simplified graphical interface to non expert users. It can be set up as a gateway, having some extra features over a usual router.
ext2hide is a proof-of-concept program that seeks to magically hide confidential data and files where nobody will look for them. It accomplishes its magic by making use of otherwise abandoned space in the superblocks in ext2/ext3 filesystems.
