pbs01.wordpress: It has been a couple of days since the Mandriva team released Mandriva Linux 2009 in KDE and GNOME flavours. I decided to try Mandriva and see for myself how it has improved over Mandriva Linux 2008.1.
prosenjit23.wordpress: For the past few years Apple has seen an increase in its laptop business due majorly to the dismal failure of Microsoft’s Windows Vista operating system. Umpteen number of reports have been published telling people why they should consider switching to the Mac OS, but not a single one has surfaced that spells out the merits of switching over to a variety of Linux.
blogs.zdnet.com: I fought to get SuSE Linux Professional released into Open Source when the idea wasn’t even a twinkle in Novell’s eye. What I really want is something the lines of an openSLES — in other words, a free version of SLES with free security and bugfix updates, with the support lifecycle to back it up.
raiden.net: As part of an ongoing experiment, and effort to help my fellow students, I've been working on a project to inform everyone I meet, any chance I have, about the benefits of Open Source and the joy of using Linux and BSD on their computers.
internetnews.com: Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman is leading an effort now that could possibly end up changing the way the Linux kernel is numbered.
zdnetasia.com: Big software releases like Windows Vista mark the end of "planned software" for the industry, according to Red Hat CEO, Jim Whitehurst.
dedoimedo.com: Ubuntu 8.10, the latest version of a phenomenally popular and successful distro, is supposed to hit the world scene on October 30. Being a fervent fan and a loyal user of the Ubuntu family, especially the autumn releases, I have decided that I could not wait and that I had to test the Beta build and get the first impression of the newcomer.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: The pace of software development — regardless of the licence — is pretty fast these days. The state of your systems need constant monitoring. New features, bug-fixes and (most important) security updates need to be properly managed. When it comes to system updates — GNU/Linux beats Windows.
ibiztech.wordpress: I was reading through a Harvard Business Review article and I came across a distinction which essentially says [in my own words] … “people don’t want a car, they just want to get from here to there” I was struck by how true this is and how often we geeks fail to understand that subtlety.
techtarget.com: In Part I of our report on choosing Unix or Linux, we discussed the questions you might ask when considering either Unix or Linux. In this tip, we'll delve more into application-related issues and look more deeply into support.
opensuse.org: Some people asked me to compile a 10 bullet list what every user should know if new to openSUSE. It’s not intended to be useful for the hardcore user, it’s for beginners. It’s not only openSUSE 11.0 focused, most of the stuff can be also used with older versions.
Elisa is an open source cross-platform media center connecting the Internet to an all-in-one media player.
techiemoe.com: Mandriva has an odd naming scheme for their releases. It sort of follows the way automakers in the US name their cars. Thus it's October 2008 and I'm playing with Mandriva 2009. I guess the idea is that I'll use 2009 well into the real year 2009. Or something.
