Amino has said that it will integrate the Firefox browser into its award-winning range of IPTV set-top boxes. Firefox, recently reported to be approaching a 13% share of the Internet browser market on PCs, will be adapted to provide consumers with a clear television interface, wholly different from the web-user experience of the current software.
With VMplayer or "VMware Player" you can install pretty much an operating system to run right inside a window or full screen, on top of your existing Linux install, just as if you were running a basic application. In this howto I will try to show you how to use open source software to make a .vmdk and .vmx file (essentially it is the information that lets VMplayer understand the virtual guest OS and interacts with the .vmdk files that make up the operating system itself).
The stories I read about businesses that have migrated to open source software (OSS) successfully always tell the beginning and end and leave out the middle. Generally, they describe why the company chose OSS and how well OSS performs in production. If you're like me, you wonder what kind of pain and anguish they went through to get from point A to point C.
The companies and organizations opposing Microsoft's Office software format have banded together to form the OpenDocument Format Alliance, announced Friday.
For those who missed the announcement on phpBB.com last week and are wondering why it’s currently down; they are relocating to the Open Source Lab at Oregon State.
The release of Mandriva Linux One 2006 Beta 2 was announced yesterday. As we didn't have too much luck with the first one and early reports state the boot problems still exist, Tuxmachines almost took a pass on this release. That would have been a mistake. This beta 2 shows the kind of release we've come to expect from Mandriva, even in the beta stage, and we are proud to report we had wonderful results this time.

More than a dozen authors will be among the all-expert lineup of speakers at LinuxWorld and NetworkWorld Conference and Expo 2006, April 24 – 26, Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Academic institutions are being encouraged to consider open source as the default for developing and deploying software. Getting them to consider open source is the useful way to help organisations to focus on what is important: the technical and user requirements, rather than a vendor sales pitch.
Moving from Windows to GNU/Linux and need to take your saved email with you? Here's how you can do it.
Yet in recent weeks the open-source community has been thrown into tumult. Software giant Oracle Corp. has acquired two small open-source companies and is in negotiations to buy at least one more. Many experts believe this is the beginning of a broader trend in which established tech companies scoop up promising open-source startups. The fear is that a round of buyouts could undermine the ethos of open source.
This documents my adventure of setting up a spam/virus fighting mail server on Sarge. It is not the most fancy way of doing it, but should be suitable for an environment with not too many users, nor a bunch of road warriors.
Novell reported yesterday that net income for the fiscal quarter ending 31 January 2006 reached $1.8m, down from $396m in the same period last year when the company reported high gains related to a settlement with Microsoft.
The fight for Net Neutrality is for the place we call the Net. The fight against Net Neutrality is for a neutered Net biased toward carrying the next form of Cable TV. But what about the fact that most of us never have experienced Neutrality in the first place?
I preside more than 10 Slackware and Debian servers at a small engineering firm, serving 50 in-house and several external employees. Normal IT services are rendered through the use of Apache, MySQL, PHP, BIND, Squid, Netfilter, Courier IMAP, Postfix, VsFTPd, and Samba. Here's a list of my essential tools.
Linspire Inc. and one of its biggest desktop Linux rivals, Ubuntu, are talking about collaborating to offer Linspire's CNR (Click-N-Run) application download service to Ubuntu users.
In this article, I will discuss the benefits of using a MySQL cluster to corporations that require highly available data, the implementation of basic MySQL cluster using the minimum recommended requirements, and how to enhance the initial cluster to allow for more availability. I will also describe some cluster configuration options and some typical MySQL cluster management client commands for managing a cluster.
Some people might be surprised that the government is only just waking up to the idea that open source is secure, stable and attractive to end users. Better late than never, though.
