- Interview: Miguel de Icaza
- Interview With Joseph Hill - Mono
linux.com: Few free and open source software projects have attracted such a range of reactions as Mono. On one hand, as an implementation of Microsoft's .Net that's sponsored by Novell, it has been vilified both for the company it keeps and as a possible source of patent claims, should Microsoft choose to get nasty.
blogs.the451group: We’ve talked recently about how the down economy can be both good and bad for Linux and open source software in general. The more I consider the continued gloomy outlook, the more I am convinced the economic struggle will translate to increased interest, use and adoption for open source software.
guardian.co.uk: Shen -- who is keen on Linux -- said Asus had hoped sales of Eee PCs would be 50:50 between XP and Linux, but actually they were 60:40 in XP's favour.
blogs.eweek: For the past six years or so, I've watched the suite progress slowly but steadily toward the goal of being "just as good" as Microsoft Office. For my needs, OpenOffice.org has been better than good enough. Given the rise of these Web-based alternatives it's worth asking whether OpenOffice.org will continue to matter as we move forward.
kde.org: Today on IRC a user asked the following question: "Is there a list of 1.4 features that are still missing in Amarok 2?" As this question comes up rather frequently, I will try to shed some light on this topic here.
linux.com: If I had had SpeedCrunch or Qalculate! during high school, finishing homework really would've been child's play. From breaking down complex algebraic equations, to solving your calculus problems, to performing geometric computations and providing statistical answers, SpeedCrunch and Qalculate! are tools that offer quick solutions to difficult questions.
tectonic.co.za: Debian, the granddaddy of Linux distributions, is in trouble. Its planned September release date for Lenny - its latest release - has come and gone and there is still no sign of the new product. It seems the Debian team is battling “too many release critical bugs” to make Lenny viable. And now the team is calling for help from the community to squash the remainder of these bugs.
Andreas Jaeger: I have served as chairperson of the openSUSE board the last year and would like to announce that I decided to pass the honours on for the next election period.
gcn.com: Military IT folks wondering if their use of Apache, Perl, Linux and other open source software is copacetic with the brass will soon get some answers from the Defense Department's Office of the Chief Information Officer.
practical-tech.com: Even before our recent economic crash, flying has become increasingly more costly. So have hotels, the price of gas, on and on it goes. Can you afford to go to a show? Can your company afford to send you to a show? The answer for most of us and our businesses is increasingly ‘no.’
theinquirer.net: TRIVIA QUIZ: Which browser was the first to implement tabs, integrated search, zoom, saved sessions, and runs on mobile phones and TVs? Hint: it wasn't Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome.
theregister.co.uk: Commercial Linux distributor Red Hat hosted its annual analyst day in New York today, and as Wall Street continues to hemorrhage, the company couldn't have picked a gloomier time for the occasion.
pcw.co.uk: Following the recent releases of two popular Linux distributions, Fedora 9 and Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, we are looking at a couple of additional pieces of software you might want to install onto a fresh installation of either.
computerworlduk.com/blogs: To understand the principal difference between Samba and Mono, we need to explore what they do, and how they do it.
blogs.zdnet: No one questions the fact of recession any more, although we have yet to confirm a single quarter without growth, let alone two. Tech hates recessions, even though tech booms start at the bottom of them. Just as open source itself emerged from the wreckage of the dot bomb during, what — the early aughts?
linux.com: Sidux, a relatively new desktop Linux distribution, is based on Sid, the unstable developmental branch of Debian. The developers strive for an easy-to-install and easy-to-use modern Debian derivative, and pride themselves on remaining true to the principles and values of the Debian project. Despite a few inconveniences, I like Sidux a bit more each time I use it.
linuxshellaccount.blogspot: More than a few people wrote in to let me know about other interesting "live" distro's of Linux after our post on using LinuxDefender Live CD to Fix NTFS problems ran.
Welcome to this year's 12th issue of DPN, the newsletter for the Debian community. Some of the topics covered in this issue include: Bits from the DPL, What you can do for Lenny, and 500,000th bug reported.
blogs.techrepublic.com: With the unsure economy and Microsoft Vista failing to gain overwhelming acceptance, many people are considering a migration to Linux. Although I find Linux to be far superior to Windows, certain criteria MUST be considered before making the switch.
