Ever wish you could experience the "holodeck," the 3-D virtual environment aboard the Starship Enterprise? There's a company that believes it's come close, letting video game players play with huge, high-definition screens that envelop the user.
aLinux (formerly Peanut Linux) is an interesting distribution that has been getting increased coverage in recent weeks. Jay Klepacs, the founder and lead developer of aLinux, was kind enough to answer a few questions about aLinux - in his typical eccentric and verbose fashion.
It's hard to stay on track when so much great new Linux audio software and resources are being released. So here we go with Dave's Distractions for August 2005.
Distribution release PocketLinux 1.2 was announced on Distrowatch last night and Tuxmachines was excited to try it out. However, that excitement didn't last long. Not only were the simplifications pointless as was the light version of KDE, ... well, read the rest to find out...
There it is.
We've hopefully fixed up all the problems that the longish -rc series showed, and it shouldn't be that painful. The changes since -rc7 are pretty small, full shortlog and diffstat of that appended.
Dell is so fed up with all those stickers from Microsoft and Intel that it has to put on PCs it makes that it's stomping its mighty foot.
Bugged by changes imposed after the portal's purchase of the hip photo site, some irate Flickr members plan a mass ID suicide to show their disapproval.
This week's agreement with Freescale could be taken as a sign that the transition to Intel chips may take longer than expected.
For as long as most technologists can remember, there has been "Wintel." But "Lintel," or the Linux operating system and Intel, is now encroaching on this empire, and behind it is the entire open-source software movement, which threatens to overthrow the Windows industry.
Server sales for all operating systems increased. Linux systems lead the pack with 45.1 per cent revenue growth, although its 11.5 per cent share of the overall market remains small relative to Windows and Unix systems.
U.S. oil prices surged to a record above $70 a barrel as one of the country's biggest storms tore through the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, forcing oil producers and refiners to shut down operations.
The report of a meeting between OSDL and Microsoft has raised a few eyebrows this week. The eWeek report notes that OSDL had only confirmed discussing the idea with Taylor, but not a final response from OSDL. On Friday, I had a chance to have a short talk with Cohen, and got a definitive answer.
