Ubuntu has been a phenomenon in the desktop Linux niche. But Canonical Chief Executive Mark Shuttleworth, who founded the project, has his eyes on the more lucrative server market. Shuttleworth discussed his agenda with CNET News.com's Stephen Shankland.
A network of developers who work on much of the most commonly used software on Linux is passing up multi-core monsters with gigabytes of RAM to target their code to a design of which only 500 prototype boards now exist: the "Children's Machine 1" from the One Laptop Per Child project.
Okay, time to finish off the “How to Update Banshee” posts. The Mighty Aaron Bockover has put up a repository for SLED10 and another for openSUSE 10.2. If you followed my previous steps on buidling banshee from source, you have to uninstall all the packages before adding these. This is as easy as using “sudo make uninstall.”
As VCs continue to demonstrate their willingness to fund young open source companies, many closed source companies are trying to adopt an open source-type business model just to be more appealing to those with the cash. A lot of the startups recognize the fact that it's difficult to get into the software business if you don't have an open source angle.
In recent months, there is one thing that’s on my mind - open source revenue vs. revolution. Seriously, while the revolution is well underway within the open source community, one has to question which of these two previously mentioned ideologies will, in the end, be the deciding factor on the future of software and OS' as a whole.

Tapping once again into the collective talents of the open-source community, the new Firefox 2.0 Web browser is unambiguously a success. This said, it breaks little genuinely new ground.

The last time I reviewed Fedora (Core 5, here) I was left a bit annoyed overall. Frustrated, as idealism had gotten the best of what I was hoping to be a solid distribution. This time around I'm hoping Fedora will be on the right path.
Bigger and Badder! The Fifth Annual Southern California Linux Expo is coming! It will be February 10-11, 2007, at The Westin Los Angeles Airport.

There's an ancient Unix practice of keeping a system-wide phone directory in /usr/share/ with one-line entries containing name, location, and number, and a shell script named something like phone or tel that calls grep to output lines that match whatever arguments you give. You can improve on that method to create a personal contact manager with surprising speed and power.
The free and open source software industry should follow the lead of the Creative Commons project to make it easier for developers to understand and choose open source licenses.
Cheap little servers handle so much of the Internet’s dirty work that giant computers known as mainframes, which debuted 50 years ago and often cost more than $1 million, are supposed to be passe. Yet mainframes are inspiring new ways of doing things at organizations like Hoplon.
