Please grab beta 2 and let us know what you think. With any luck we won't need to make any major changes, and Gaim 2.0.0 final will be out before you can prove the theory of special relativity.

Generally, file systems are not considered "sexy." When a young programmer wants to do something really cool, his or her first thought is generally not "Dude, two words...File System."

Gamers on the Linuxplatform will soon be able to join Bjarni and his friends in their mission to save their homeland from mysterious serpent creatures, as Northland Linux has gone gold and should be available by February 2nd.
Three organizations--Stanford University, Coverity, and Symantec--recently received a Department of Homeland Security grant to assist open source projects in tightening their code with automated code-checking. The question is, will this help be welcome? LinuxPlanet speaks with Coverity's CTO and founder as well as Linus Torvalds to see just how useful Coverity's defect reports have been.
I first demoed Versora Progression Desktop at LinuxWorld Boston in February of 2005, and was impressed by what it could do. Basically it takes all of your essential data and program settings (and even some decidedly nonessential settings) and transfers them to GNU/Linux. I hadn't heard much from the company since then -- until Linspire announced a partnership with them recently. The deal is, Progression Desktop will move you from Windows to Linspire without any hassle.
"We are facing fierce competition from Novell [Inc.] and Red Hat [Inc.], so we want to differentiate ourselves," said Claude Zhou, Turbolinux China's general manager, in Beijing. "We want to do something in the second-tier cities."
In this issue of Industry Insider, Seth Gottlieb, content management practice lead at Optaros, explains how one should go about selecting an open-source content management system.
"What's the best Linux desktop distribution?" Now, while some people will swear up and down that Slackware or Fedora or even Puppy, for that matter, is the best Linux desktop, I think the answer is more complicated. In fact, I don't think there is a single answer.
Also: Ubuntu hitches a ride on USB drives
You might have missed it, if you want to buy products from Novell's serious SUSE Linux line -- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), Novell Linux Small Business Suite 9, and Open Enterprise Server -- you'll be paying less after March 1st.
It often seems the big publishers have lost touch with gamers, focusing more on wily marketing campaigns rather than interesting new titles.
"Darwinia" offers proof that there's something good about being small. For Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.
I have read a TechNews article last week and figured that most of the tips listed are aimed towards Windows users. Let us examine how it fares for those who use other operating systems.
John "Maddog" Hall, David Miller, Mark Shuttleworth, Chris Cormack, and Dave Airlie are amongst the names on the schedule.

Firefox 1.5 has been downloaded more than 20 million times since its late November release, Mozilla Corp. announced Tuesday.
Ubuntu has become increasing popular amongst many Linux users, especially users trying Linux for the first time. Just why is Ubuntu so popular? I’ll explore some of its features and distributions this month, including Kubuntu and Edubuntu, and try to find out.
Niels Provos' Systrace is a utility that monitors and controls what an application can access on a system by creating and enforcing access policies for system calls. For the Linux crowd, it's something like the US National Security Agency's SE Linux, but it's more flexible and, if used properly, it can improve a system's overall security by "sandboxing" untrusted applications and users.
Film maker David Madie wants to bring the story of the FLOSS movement in Africa to your local cineplex. Documentary film maker David Madie is on an unusual mission in Africa. He's following a young computer entrepreneur whose story, Madie believes, shows a different face of what condescendingly has been called the Dark Continent.
Coming home after a hard day at work after staring at the monitor continuously for hours on end, the last thing I want to do many days is sit in front of the computer again. At times though, I have this urge to grab a book and do some light reading but often the strain on my eyes dissuades me in pursuing this thought any further.
