I am sure that by now all the world has already found out and tested the cool new tool google launched yesterday: google trends… What does this show us? That redhat is going down… Debian is strong and many peoples are still interested into it. Centos? Peoples don’t know to much about this cool project.
Windows and Linux are the two big rivals of Unix. Though born just nine years ago, Linux has developed very fast, thanks to its openness and good performance. More importantly, Linux is bolstered not only by many companies, but also by a great number of Linux fans around the world.
FreeBSD developer Scott Long told ZDNet UK on Thursday that the operating system, descended from the Unix derivative BSD, is "quickly approaching" feature parity with Linux.
In this review, I'm hopefully going to highlight most of the changes Joe end-user might notice when upgrading or switching over to 10.1. As with every SUSE release we get to see some new eye-candy and graphics on the install, and this time around SUSE has not left me disappointed in the least.
My next two articles will demonstrate the features of two desktop operating systems that are based on FreeBSD. Both PC-BSD and DestopBSD provide an easy to install and easy to use desktop environment suited for the corporate desktop user as well as the home user with no previous Unix experience. Today I'll concentrate on PC-BSD.
We have confirmed a bug in Firefox 126.96.36.199 with DoS possibilities. When you download the source of the following page you will see what it does. It will open 100 mailforms, so be cautions when you open the link!
Ever since I first had to use it for real work, I have known that I tend to get a lot more writing and programming done when I use the command line interface than when I'm in X11. Somehow, though, my increase in productivity didn't fully register with me until I put OpenBSD on my laptop computer.
Open source is beating Microsoft in areas where the software firm is lacking in innovation. But when competing head to head on features, Microsoft has no trouble beating open source, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer argued during a public speaking engagement in Silicon Valley.
First of all it is destined to fall into one of two traps. Either its API become so high level and limited that application developers will shun it due to a lack of features. On the other hand if they actually try to implement a feature set that is big enough to at least satisfy a subset, then they will be forced into accessing things so deep in the frameworks that the operations become so framework specific that generalizing them could produce various broken behaviour changing depending on framework chosen.
Mambo's core development team leader Martin Brampton has called it quits. In his resignation letter, Brampton wrote, "In terms of fundamental principles, there is a considerable concern in my mind that the Board is not informing itself about the members wishes, and not making decisions that fully take account of their interests."
This is interesting - the case of Eric McCarty, a security researcher and sysadmin charged by Federal prosecutors last month with "knowingly having transmitted a code or command to intentionally cause damage." He exploited a SQL injection flaw to access student data, then notified SecurityFocus via email, who notified USC of the vulnerability.
In issue 80 of Linux Format, on sale now, we have an interview with Greg Mancusi-Ungaro -- the director of marketing for Linux and open source at Novell. Here are a few of the questions we asked Greg...
Linux is the most popular open source project. The Linux random number generator is part of the kernel of all Linux distributions and is based on generating randomness from entropy of operating system events.
Opera Software on Wednesday announced plans to bring a Web revolution to the living room. The Norway-based browser developer intends to do this through a partnership with Nintendo.
Ever wanted to try a new operating system without removing your old one? Ever thought about a Dual or even Multi-boot setup but didn't want to hassle with partitioning your hard drive and dealing with lengthy install procedures? Well here is your answer. Virtualization software called VMWare Player lets you run an operating system within your existing one. It's a computer inside a computer and it really is that simple. Read on to learn more about how it works.
A year ago, I reviewed Ututo-e, an Argentinian distribution based on Gentoo. Ututo-e is known mainly as the only GNU/Linux distribution endorsed by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation (FSF). This endorsement is based on the fact that Ututo-e, in the words of Peter Brown of the FSF, "makes a commitment to follow the philosophy of the FSF as to what makes a distribution ethically free software."
