It was while watching fellow Linux users having to shutdown their laptops in between talks at open source conferences some years ago that Matthew Garrett, now head of the Ubuntu laptop team, was initially alerted to power management issues in Linux systems. Aside from working on improving hardware driver issues, Cambridge, U.K.-based Garrett has also worked extensively in Linux development. Garrett speaks with Liz Tay about working in the open source community, Debian, Ubuntu, and linux.conf.au.
I have installed Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 and started installing all the programs I need. There are now several add-ons and themes that don't work with Firefox 1.5, so I decided to upgrade Firefox. Months ago I wrote about how stupid it was that Ubuntu 6.06 didn't have any packages for Firefox 2 in the repositories. The official line from Ubuntu is to upgrade from Dapper to Edgy.
Tab Effect is a Firefox extension that provides transitional effect (similar to Xgl) when switching the tabs (Check the screenshot). It’s a cool idea and could open the door for the development of more 3D effects in the browser.
Conventional wisdom says that BitTorrent achieves superior download performance over competing peer-to-peer (P2P) systems because the protocol discourages those who download without uploading in turn, creating an environment where all participants act fairly. A University of Washington (UW) research paper says otherwise, and its authors have a BitTorrent client to prove it.
The odds are good that the LAMP stack is running somewhere inside your company. The acronym refers to the foundational foursome of the open-source movement: the Linux operating system, Apache Web server, MySQL database and, collectively, the Perl, PHP and Python programming languages.

This article is about resizing ext3 partitions without losing data. It shows how to shrink and enlarge existing ext3 partitions and how to merge two ext3 partitions. This can be quite useful if you do not use LVM and you realize that your existing partitioning does not meet your actual needs anymore.
We all know Microsoft views Linux as a serious threat and will do just about anything to discourage its use. But why would application vendors who actually face competition from Microsoft help it out in this regard? That's what one reader was wondering after discovering that his customers could no longer use a Linux server with their favorite accounting packages.
At this week's Consumer Electronics Show, Nokia introduced the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, the successor to the Nokia 770. The N800 is more than a beefed-up 770, as it adds a few features not available on the first device. I had a chance to spend about an hour with Nokia's N800 team and get a feel for how the $399/€399 N800 stacks up against its predecessor yesterday at CES and it looks promising.
VICTIMS of natural disasters will be the first to say that the aftermath of a major flood, earthquake or landslide is a disaster in itself. There is the extreme difficulty of finding the missing and recovering the dead. The victims of the landslide that buried Barangay Guinsaugon in St. Bernard, Southern Leyte, however, had a relatively easier time dealing with their crisis. This is due to the cooperation between IBM Philippines and the National Disaster Coordinating Council.
The Fedora Linux project, which is sponsored by Red Hat Inc and provides the core code for its Linux distributions, is set for a reorganization that will unite its Core and Extras package efforts.

The Gentoo/FreeBSD project, which combines the FreeBSD kernel with Gentoo Linux design principles, is in a fix. Its lead developer, Diego "Flameeyes" Pettenò, discovered licensing issues while working on the libkvm library and the start-stop-daemon -- and Pettenò says that the problem might not be limited to his project, but could trap other BSD-derived projects as well.
There is always something interesting afloat in my email box. I had been working with my new laptop to get another second timer Elive to work, which came out on Christmas day. Elive, the distro named as the fastest climber on distrowatch for 2006, was one of my favorite suprises and one where I truly ended up leaving a distro on my laptop until it died later in the year. So once I published the Dream, of course I get a couple of emails letting me know that Elive also had a great new release out and where was my updated review?
The 2007 International Consumer Electronic Show is one of the ultimate tech-toy and gadget shows on the planet.
