France has two national police forces, each reporting to a different ministry. One ministry is trying to avoid the kind of IT monoculture that allows viruses to spread and disable all key systems; the other wants to bring uniformity to a sprawling IT infrastructure. Both are turning to open source software to achieve their aims.
In the February 2006 survey we received responses from 76,184,000 sites, an increase of 933K from January's total. Apache continues its strong growth with an increase of 1.3 million hostnames for the month, but the active sites data shows a very different result.
A new beta of SUSE was released yesterday and since I missed beta2, I just had to look at beta 3. In a few words, no big changes are afoot, but plenty under-the-hood updates and few surprizes were found. Some of these new and improved items may have shown up in beta 2, so this is our report on SUSE development since beta 1.
For the last few years, the biggest show in town has been CES, the Consumer Electronics Show. It fills the whole Convention Center--the biggest one on Earth--plus the Sands and the Hilton and the Alexis Park. Several million square feet host more than 2,500 exhibits and 150,000 visitors. Doc's first report on CES. Several thumbs-down and one big thumbs-up on the keynotes.
Last week's big story was also this week's big story. The proposed version 3 of the GNU General Public Licence, the GPL, grabbed headlines this week as every pundit worth his pencil weighed in on the subject. The verdict? Well, it's either great, seriously flawed or irrelevant.
Nigerian software vendor Leapsoft Ltd has launched a new Linux distribution, Wazobia Linux, aimed at meeting the needs of consumers, businesses, education, and government in West Africa.
I've been working as a Linux admin for more than six years, and using Linux for a little longer. Like a lot of Linux administrators, I started with Red Hat, but now I use Debian stable at work and Gentoo at home. Recently, NewsForge asked readers to "let us know about your most valuable utilities." Here are mine.
The Free Standards Group (FSG), the non-profit group behind the Linux Standard Base (LSB), has announced that Debian Linux founder Ian Murdock will be its new CTO (chief technology officer) and will chair the LSB workgroup.
Malicious hackers are increasingly targeting security vulnerabilities in open-source software that runs bulletin boards and online forums, according to Internet monitoring firm Netcraft.
If you're fed up with Microsoft's domination of the browser market and want to experience new features like tabbed browsing before Internet Explorer 7 hits the streets, then here's a round-up of some of the more popular alternatives available and the ones that I have on my system...
As anticipated, VMware has created a free version of its server partitioning software in the hopes of drawing new customers to its technology. In addition, the move counters open source rival XenSource, which gives away core server virtualization technology known as a hypervisor.
Ah, sweet, sweet caffeine. Whether your chosen delivery device is a Triple Red Eye from Starbucks or a liter of Mountain Dew, nothing beats the gentle jolt into full wakefulness provided by the humble C8H10N4O2 molecule. In a cruel twist of fate, some people are unable to brew a pot of coffee, a latte, or figure out how to open a can of Mountain Dew right after waking up, due to that very same lack of caffeine. What's a caffeine-loving geek to do?
I'll be honest with you. After, Peter Quinn, Massachusetts's CIO, resigned from pressure that he believed could largely be traced back to Microsoft, I didn't think the ODF (OpenDocument Format) had a chance in heck of making it into the state's offices.
It turns out I may be wrong.
Securing enterprise Linux desktops against hostile code has gotten easier, thanks to Ingo Molnar's work on the NX enabler patch in Linux kernel 2.6.8 and processor-based, page protection mechanisms. The trick is in the execution, and, as usual, the Microsoft way probably is not the right choice.
