Ubuntu's need to catch a wave

Filed under
Ubuntu

dag.wieers.com/blog: Let me play devil's advocate here. Mark Shuttleworth's recent pledge to join a synchronised release plan for Enterprise Linux distributions is no more than a wish to benefit from a lot of work that Novell and Red Hat are already doing in the Enterprise space.

Why I won't even try Fedora 9

Filed under
Linux

beranger.org: It might sound very bizarre, knowing that I was using Rawhide quite some time before F9 was released. However... I am not impressed by the way Fedora 9 is becoming "yet another Ubuntu."

Adventures with Ubuntu and XP and the family computer

Filed under
Ubuntu

mindstab.net: So my folks Windows XP box started having difficulty booting. Most of the time it would go to boot and suddenly you'd be back at the BIOS. So I burned a copy of Hardy Heron, the newest Version of Ubuntu, released just last month. It loaded up and recognized all the hardware and installed, no trouble.

Filed under

Filed under
Moz/FF

ostatic.com: I've been using all the previous beta versions, and while I'm still frustrated that I can't use my extensions with RC1, the rendering speed is so much faster than previous versions that I'm ready to use it as my main browser most of the time. It is still pre-release software, but the speed and several of the new features are truly welcome.

Firefox 3 First Look

Filed under
Moz/FF

sjvn: I've loved Firefox since version 0.93. It was so much better than Internet Explorer and the other alternatives that I couldn't imagine using anything else. But, then Firefox's memory leaks went from annoying me to ticking me off. Now, Firefox 3 release candidate 1 was released early. Based on my quick look at it, I may end up sticking with Firefox after all.

business-standard.com: The price of software increases every year, the total value of software piracy as calculated by it is bound to increase even if there's a dip in piracy rates. There's now an open-source alternative for almost every major software need, ranging from databases and office suites to business applications.

It's time to retire "ready for the desktop"

Filed under
Linux

linux.com: Quite a few reviews of new Linux releases these days try to determine if a distribution is "ready for the desktop." I myself have probably been guilty of using that phrase, but I think it's time we officially retire this criterion.

Cost Effective Linux Server Software for Enterprises

The advantages of a Linux server over expensive Windows systems are numerous with hardly any drawbacks. Since Linux is not dominant as Windows, there are some slight difficulties to find applications based on this platform to support the needs. While security stands as an important aspect for servers, the advantage over dominant operating systems is that security flaws are caught in Linux, even before they become an issue for the public. Linux was one of the first open-source technologies in which you can download the source code and change it any way you like. Several Linux coders have developed software that’s completely open-source for any user, improving the security and usability at each core.
