Much like Microsoft's influence over software developers in the 1990s, Red Hat has seemingly rallied all of the major open source application providers to support the company's forthcoming online store--known as the Red Hat Exchange.
Over the past few years I've used the venerable XMMS application for playing back all my audio content. After reading recently that this project has been mothballed, seeing no future updates, I decided to try the successor project XMMS2. Here's how I got on.
A new wave of emerging Linux application providers are doubling and even tripling their channel investments this year as they move to take Linux from a cult status relegated to business niches to a mainstream end-to-end solution stack.
At this time, Java Swing apps won't run properly under Beryl or Compiz. The app comes up, but it comes up completely blank. It's a known issue, and Java engineers are working on it. But until it hits my box, I still need to run Java, and I'm definitely not giving up Beryl.
A few weeks back Dell invited ideas from the world at large about what it should put on sale - in other words, what did the so-called "community" want?
The reason I wanted to attend BrainShare this year, specifically, was to find out for myself if Novell was really a Linux company, or if they were just talking the talk.
Imagine my complete and utter surprise when I discovered I didn't need to actually attend the show to learn the answer.
How can I become a Mandriva Packager? : A new contributor, Shlomi Fish, appeared on the cooker ML and asked how he could become a Mandriva packager. Stéphane Teletchéa directed him to the Submitter HOWTO and some others docs. Since then, Shlomi Fish submits severals perl related packages. Welcome on board Shlomi !

It’s been a little over two full months that I’ve been using Ubuntu Linux as my sole operating system (cold turkey switch from Windows) and I think it’s about time to share some thoughts, some links, and hopefully a little knowledge that I’ve picked up along the way.
Desktop computing technology has evolved considerably since the first graphical user interface was developed by researchers at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center in 1973.
It has already been reported by several blogs and news pages, therefore I’m safe blogging about it now. The previously discussed schedule is out in the wild. The KDE 4.0 schedule has officially been released to the KDE development wiki. Also, a roadmap and a module status page ahs been added.
Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to use many different open source software packages for various projects with which I’ve been involved. I’ve tried many different content management systems, shopping carts, operating systems, development editors, multimedia players, and many more. I have a few favorites that I have come to rely on and will continue to use long into the future.
One of the areas of Konsole which I really want to give a little love for KDE 4 is the terminal setup ( terminal features, colour schemes, display options, character encoding etc. ) and creation of profiles for different types of terminal.
The FLOSS Movement is not yet recognized enough to develop peacefully. There are many obstacles in the way of its expansion: either internal (e.g. lack of standards) or external (e.g. stubborn hardware manufacturers). Those problems could be gradually overcome in a relatively short period of time but a question arises: What will happen if the paranoia wins?
I was just thinking about how difficult it was for me to setup dual monitors on my Ubuntu system. I read numerous articles and tutorials about how to get it up and running. The configuration settings were different for each person so it was hard to get it right. After hours searching and hours of tweaking the settings, I finally got it how I like:
After a number of recommendations from readers on my SimplyMEPIS 6.5 RC1 review, I decided to make my next Linux distribution review about PCLinuxOS 2007 Test 3. Like SimplyMEPIS, it is an up-and-coming distribution that aims to make all the advanced capabilities of Linux easily available to everyone.
Today (and the last few days, and I generally does that quite all the time) I have been using KDE applications extensively in real life projects, today a tight day in the fundraising group in the sailing club.
Discussing via email what should go in our ‘sales’ material, and producing that material using KWord, Krita, Digikam, Konqueror and KPDF.
Almost two years ago, the FSF (Free Software Foundation) started work on the first update of the GNU GPL (General Public License) in over a decade. A last-minute hitch, though, is keeping the license from appearing.
Spicy food should cause chemical burns, or spontaneous human combustion. Your mouth should feel as if it’s tangled with an angry badger. Capillaries in your nose should burst. Your gut should sue for punitive damages. If not, your food just isn’t spicy enough.
Avery Bowron, a computer-savvy 19-year-old, readily acknowledges that he learned something valuable about technology from senior citizens: Good software can be obtained at no cost.
He learned that lesson two years ago in Olympia, Wash., when he volunteered to refurbish old computers for low-income elderly people.
Sabayon Linux, a LiveDVD distribution known for being based upon Gentoo and its inclusion of desktop eye-candy such as Beryl and XGL, has reached version 3.3. New in this Sabayon release is the Linux 2.6.20 kernel, X.Org 7.2 with AIGLX and Composite support, Beryl 0.2.0-rc2, updated NVIDIA and ATI drivers, and much more.
