Last week's column was basically a rant about things that bothered me about Ubuntu's GNOME/Linux combination. Besides the usual 'I do not experience the problems you have, so you must be an anti-GNOME troll!' and of the course the ever-present 'How on earth can you complain about Free software!', it did what is was supposed to do: bring problems under developer's direct attention (for instance, Evolution's UI maintainer emailed me, asking for more clarification). Now it's Apple's turn. Here is a list of problems I find the most annoying about Apple's Mac/MacOS.
Who wouldn't trust a company that hid built-in spyware on every Windows-based PC in the land?
It turns out that Microsoft's Genuine Advantage anti-piracy program is also keeping daily tabs on Windows users. Who knew?
Europeans have a deep appreciation of them. Even in relatively chilly Denmark, there are plenty of outdoor cafés. Narrow streets in the older quarters join in public plazas as big as football fields. We also talked about how Americans seem to have a correspondingly elevated sense of private matters. Private enterprise, for example. Perhaps, Claus suggested, that's why the Net was commercialized first in the U.S.
SimplyMEPIS v6.0 Beta 5 has been released, after the availability of Ubuntu v6.06 Dapper Drake LTS, for which MEPIS is now based upon rather than the Debian pool. A few other changes can be found in SimplyMEPIS 6 Beta 5, which we have visually covered today.
In Gnome, it is possible to tag files and folders with small icons called emblems. Tagging files with visual cues like these will help a person to find the particular file much easily.
MySQL in a Nutshell is for those new to mysql and also useful for those that are experienced with this database. As with most of the Nutshell books, this book is more of a complete reference for commands. Not really designed to be read cover to cover, it does provide an excellent reference for anyone that deals with the popular mysql database.
Implementing a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that will impact every division of a company is an intriguing proposition. A lot is expected of such a system, and when we were tasked with this undertaking at our company, we did not want to neglect the foundation of it -- the database. In this article, I will describe how we built a "bulletproof penguin" one piece at a time.
In this final installment, we delve into the geographics of Ubuntu’s appeal; the investment by Shuttleworth’s venture Capital fund, HBD in ImpiLinux, and ever so gingerly broach the religious topic of KDE versus Gnome — not just as the Linux desktop, but as Mark Shuttleworth’s Ubuntu desktop.
The first working model of the $100 One Laptop Per Child made its debut this week at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston where lunch can cost $100.
This story, Why technical writers aren’t using FOSS, appeared in on Newsforge in April, and I have to take issue with some of the assumptions.
First of all, I am technical writer, and I do use FOSS.
As you may have heard, Microsoft has begun allowing public downloading and testing of their Vista Beta 2 system. Much like you I suppose, I usually hate windows and swear never to purchase another disk from Microsoft. But since they offered a download for free, I couldn't resist the urge to take a look. I'd seen a few screenshots here and there, but it's not the same as clicking around on your own machine. Today I installed the beta 2 and thought I might as well share my experiences with it as I do with linux systems. I thought perhaps others might be curious as well.
The Puppy Linux project team, which debuted its v2.0 on June 1, has released a followup version that replaces Mozilla's SeaMonkey suite of web applications with Opera 9.0 Beta 2, founder and chief evangelist Barry Kauler said June 8 in his weblog.
Few months ago, someone asked how he could do a Debian netinstall over wifi with only first CD [fr] and there I learnt that Ubuntu CD could as it contains the proprietary firmware.
The Gentoo Portage Team is proud to announce that version 2.1 of portage has been completed and added to the tree for testing.
My rough-and-tumble hijinks aside, it is clear to me that we are in yet another round of "Booga Booga" from Those Who Dislike Open Source. Wow. This week hasn't just been "Booga Booga." It's been the guy with the hockey mask coming at us through the woods.
MPlayer is my media player of choice. It is available for Windows and Linux, and plays most about every file format in a completely borderless window (a feature I miss in vlc, totem, kmplayer etc.). Here you can find useful configurations to maximise your viewing pleasure.
Written by Jeff Dike, founder and lead developer of UML, this is an authoritative and useful resource for anyone interested in using the software in anger. It describes both the genesis of the software - and it's instructive for those who are interested in how such projects grow and develop over time - and also a technical reference that describes what it's used for and how to get it up and running properly.
The long-awaited Ubuntu 6.06 Long Term Support (LTS) release, also known as Dapper Drake, made its debut last week. After extensive testing, I can say that it was worth the delay from its originally scheduled April release date.
Microsoft's delay with the release of Windows Vista has left enough wiggle room for other players to pursue the desktop operating system market. An old Microsoft rival, Novell, is angling to seize the day with the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, a desktop OS geared to beat Vista in cost, manageability and features.
