For those dieing to see what Fedora Core 6 final shall look like, we have built it from Rawhide on October 18, which should be the final packages for this build.

This macro can be used to store text fragments from multiple documents in one text file, or to save deleted passages in an external file in case you need them later.

The problem essentially is this: none of the Creative Commons licenses have a "source" requirement (unlike the GPL, for example), because, being intended for creative content, it was generally felt that no definition of "source" was really workable, and what's worse, the intuitive rules for different media would likely be very different.
The good news is that Microsoft Office is not the end of it all. There are several alternate office suites in the market. The bad news is that vendors are not pushing news of their availability enough leading to low end user awareness levels. Here’s a look at the most popular suites available and what you should be watching out for, if you plan to invest in them.
After last month's release of GNOME 2.16.0, the 2.17.1 release of GNOME has been announced this morning -- in the development cycle for the road to 2.18.0.

Of the updated packages in this first development release is new encoding profile support in Banshee, network game support in many of GNOME Games, Gossip fixes, GNOME Power Manager advancements, and much more. We have already fired up GARNOME and have plenty of screenshots of the freshly-compiled GNOME 2.17.1.

Wouldn't it be nice to consolidate all of those servers onto just a few pieces of hardware to more fully utilize your resources and yet still maintain separate OS environments for each of the applications? With the IBM POWER5-based servers, you can do just that.
