This article shows how you can convert a physical Windows system (XP, 2003, 2000, NT4 SP4+) into a VMware virtual machine with the free VMware Converter Starter. The resulting virtual machine can be run in the free VMware Player and VMware Server, and also in VMware Workstation and other VMware products.
System administrators often have to copy data around. Copying and converting ordinary data is easily accomplished with the Linux command called cp. However, if the data is not ordinary, cp is not powerful enough. The needed power can be found in the dd command, and here are some ways to put that power to good use.

In response to all this recent nonsense about gnome vs KDE vs Linus vs everyone else that has jumped on this bandwagon I thought I would do the responsible thing and put the two to the test. I will use KDE for one full week and post my thoughts at the end of that time.

Interoperability poses problems for most IT managers during migrations to or from Linux. Obstacles are presented in moving from the old and new environment and old and new versions of existing products. Both of these challenges were met by Metropolitan Bank Group during a migration to Novell SUSE, and this tip describes and offers commentary on that project.
The proliferation of virtualization options gives Linux an edge over Windows. I came away from InfoWorld's Virtualization Executive Forum this week with two conclusions. First, server virtualization is definitely a big deal. And, second, nowhere is virtualization hotter than in the Linux market.
A national centre to promote the development of open source software will be officially launched next week. The National Open Centre (NOC) holds its official launch at the Houses of Parliament on 26 February.
SCALE is the Southern California Linux Expo and is turning out to be one of the premier Linux meetings of the year. This year attendance was about 1200 with 90 booths. While other conferences are larger, this one is nice because you actually get to spend quality time talking to people and finding out things.
In the transition from KDE 3 to KDE 4 a new file manager, dolphin, was often discussed and now officially moved to the base part of KDE. dolphin will become the default file manager (kicker buttons and file:/ links bring it up); or a more file-manager-oriented GUI than in kde3.
With the latest release standing @ 10.2, openSuSe has made its Linux distribution pretty impressive. i have tried till date some 4 releases of SuSe and this has been the best of them all.
Vote for the name of the new KDE developer and sysadmin wiki. *** Nathan Sanders reveals that KDE 4's Sonnet will turbocharge language processing at Linux.com. *** CSS3.info blogs that Konqueror is the most compliant browser for CSS.
Analyst firm Gartner said that open source integration remains an "elusive goal" despite the ongoing efforts of groups including the OSA, the Open Source Development Lab, the Apache Software Foundation and the Eclipse Foundation.
Has open source lost its halo, as Eric Lai's Computerworld article suggests? Is open-source still a grassroots social movement made up of idealistic underdogs trying to revolutionize an amoral industry?
Or is that a straw-man argument cooked up for a slow news day?
One problem I often find with
The polls are closed, the data has been audited and the results are in. Here are the official results for the 2006 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards:

You can easily watch videos and view images in ascii. If you are ascii art fans, you will be amazed what libaa and libcaca capable of. libaa is a portable ascii art GFX library, where libcaca as well, is another ascii art library but it have better support such as unicode, 2048 colors etc.
The latest release of the Linux kernel, 2.6.20, includes integrated virtualization capabilities with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). The KVM kernel module leverages x86 virtualization extensions included in various Intel and AMD processors. Several distributions, including Ubuntu and Fedora, are already preparing to include the KVM kernel module in upcoming releases.
The headline of this post is tongue-in-cheek (but of course you knew that already, right?). Reuters, to the best of my knowledge, has not been banned from reporting. Although based on some of their recent work, they should be.
There's a story making the rounds today that Microsoft is poised to sign a new technology partnership with Red Hat that could be as sweeping as the one it signed with Novell. There's only one problem with the report: Red Hat is denying it.
It takes years maybe decades to master the commands available to you at the Linux shell prompt. Here are 10 that you will have never heard of or used. They are in no particular order. My favorite is mkfifo.
