The discussion about why the Reiser4 filesystem has not been merged into the Linux kernel continues on the lkml. The latest chapter in this ongoing debate tends to be more about clashing personalities than the code in question.
Before we take a look at a complete primary zone file, we need to cover background. Consider this background the context where the file itself is content.
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) is acquiring ATI Technologies, one of the top two graphics processor makers, for around $5.4 billion. AMD's aim is to grow its market share in the mobility and commercial markets, according to AMD CEO Hector Ruiz. What does this mean for Linux users?

Long known for its desktop distribution, Xandros is now getting into the server act with the release of Xandros Server 1.0. One might wonder, what's the point of yet another server-oriented distro when the server market is already well-served? Xandros Server offers a GUI-oriented approach to system administration that should do well with admins familiar with Windows server products.
Operating systems are useless unless applications will run on them. Luckily, both Linux and Windows support a broad variety of applications -- many of which are compatible with both platforms. That said, if you're planning to switch from Windows to Linux -- or Linux to Windows – you need to consider a number of factors when you plan the migration. This article will discuss those factors.
Linux is not Windows. Most users new to Linux forget this and expect Linux to operate exactly as Windows does with the result that they become frustrated. In four hundred and eighty-odd pages Linux Annoyances for Geeks tries to document and answer as many of these possible problems as possible.
When IBM introduced a version of Lotus Notes that runs on the desktop computers using the Linux operating system this month, it was a sign of confidence that open-source software is gaining market traction.
Not long ago, choosing Linux in the data center meant a tradeoff. You had to give up some capabilities in exchange for freedom from Microsoft lock-in. But that has changed. These days the features of Windows and Linux stack up against each other very competitively. For the most part, administrators can choose Linux or Windows today without losing out. Some differences, however, must be considered. In this article, I look at several of those differences.
THE departure of the IT contractor from radio station 3RRR allowed staffer Phil Wales to change career directions from Windows to Linux. His rationale was simple: the web is powered more by Unix-style systems than anything else and for a person with multimedia skills, that's where the future is.
In today's Oregonian, Mike Rogoway provides an overview of the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, which will be held at Oregon Convention Center July 24-28th.
I recently posted an article on my website from Roger who has absolutely been sold on the advantages of the Debian package installer Aptitude. Which raises the question, what is Aptitude, and how does it compare to Synaptic, Kpackage and plain old APT-Get?
Governments are now more willing to disclose and discuss their open technology plans and products because they are less fearful of agency infighting or pressure from vendors of proprietary software, said Open Source and Industry Alliance Director of Public Policy Will Rodger.
While preparations for aKademy 2006 are in full swing, next year's annual meeting of the KDE community, aKademy 2007, is sending out a Call for Location and Organisation.
To celebrate Linux's fifteenth birthday, and its 150th issue, Linux Journal is updating its Linux Timeline to mark recent milestones in the history of the free and open source operating system.
IF all goes well, the country will get its first open source bill, courtesy of Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casiño. It’s about time.
The command line can tell you a lot, if you bother to ask it. Most of us learned the five Ws as a research rubric: who? what? where? when? why? (and usually, how?). By sheer coincidence, the five Ws can also illuminate important characteristics on your Linux system, its users, processes, and commands.
On September the 9th and 10th (Saturday and Sunday) the Essener Linuxtage will take place in the University of Essen in Germany. If you are interested in helping us man a stall or giving a talk, then please contact us.
With digital music formats becoming ever more popular, the demand for different ways to play music files has also escalated. A lesser known choice is the Squeezebox from Slim Devices.
