Critical reception of Vista is cool, at best. Yet I know Microsoft didn’t set out to create a mediocre product. They have a lot of smart, passionate people who really want to create industry leading products. It is just that, on their flagship product, they haven’t.
I’ve just completed my upgrade from Ubuntu’s Edgy Eft to Fiesty Fawn. I’m running this on a Lenovo x60s with an Intel Centrino Duo processor (1.66Ghz each), 1.5 GB of RAM and the Intel i915 chipset.
Unlike my last experience, this one went very, very smooth. In fact, there were no hiccups, glitches or bugs that I’ve found so far and I’ve tested all of my critical stuff.
Nonprofit consortium the Open Solutions Alliance (OSA) has begun making moves to increase businesses' use of open-source software.
The industry group Wednesday issued an interoperability roadmap and announced its first major project -- the Common Customer View prototype.
This tutorial shows how to set up a Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04) based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.
I will use the following software:
Web Server: Apache 2.2
Database Server: MySQL 5.0
The GNOME Foundation is scheduled to announce the GNOME Mobile and Embedded Initiative (GMAE) today at the Embedded Linux Conference in Santa Clara, Calif. The initiative is aimed at bolstering GNOME usage as an embedded and mobile development platform.
Yayyy! Today is the Very Last Day that Penguin Pete has to talk about the tux500 scam! The story is almost completely told, and then I can forget it.
A bane of the system administrator’s (SA) job is on-call work. You either end up lugging a laptop or making a dash for the nearest machine when things go wrong. . It would be nice to have something that was a bit more portable but had enough tools to fix most issues.
Well, its out, thats right - Ubuntu 7.04, the Feistiest of Feisty Fawns is currently being slammed down the net into peoples computers. Go get your lovely Ubuntu goodness here.
A recent discussion on the lkml examined the possibility of a Linux implementation of Sun's ZFS. It was pointed out that the file system is released under the GPL-incompatible CDDL, and that Sun has filed numerous patents to prevent ZFS from being reverse engineered.
Samsung Electronics has followed in the footsteps of Novell and Fuji Xerox and signed a patent agreement with Microsoft which indemnifies the Korean electronics giant from any possible Linux patent infringement claims that Microsoft believes it could lodge.
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel over to Germany to talk to the key to your personal information storage, a highly dedicated KDE-PIM developer (though hide any small animals when visiting his apartment!) - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Volker Krause.
A SHORT INTRO

Microsoft software will sell for just $3 (£1.50) in some parts of the world in an attempt to double the number of global PC users.
The firm wants to bring computing to a further one billion people by 2015.
Governments in developing countries can purchase the cut-price software, if they provide free PCs for schools.
Ubuntu's website has been flaking out on and off throughout today as its users attempt to download the latest free, open source desktop, laptop, client, and server Linux distribution.
Wireless networking on Linux is entering a new era. An era of bliss and ease; where users and network administrators have abundant time for relaxing lie-abouts on sunny warm hills because their wireless systems are humming along contentedly, instead of being vexing and unreliable.
Although still not reflected on the main ubuntu.com site, which has suffered ~4 hours downtime this morning and is currently throttled, it appears Ubuntu 7.04 has become available for x86 and AMD 64 archs as well as in desktop and server flavors.
If one knows of the hype about Ubuntu, and it is almost unavoidable, one is led to believe that it is the most popular Linux distribution for desktop users. I have yet to see hard data that shows evidence of that claim so that will remain unresolved for now. One of the reasons touted for Ubuntu's popularity is that it comes on a single CD.
The Getting Things Done (GTD) method of time management is one of the simplest methods I've found, but until recently I hadn't had much luck in finding any Linux-compatible applications to help me stick to using GTD. A few weeks ago I stumbled on ThinkingRock, a Java-based app for following the GTD methodology, and tried it out. I've been pleased with its simplicity and ease of use.
My friend pushed me into using Arch Linux some time ago, and it’s pretty awesome. It’s a binary distribution, which is nice because I don’t really fancy compiling everything myself.
There are three things about Arch that I love, that is the distribution being quite minimized - it’s smaller than the other Big Ones (Debian, et al.) but probably somewhat larger than Slackware.
Why should we be concerned about the XO and crime? Probably because the extent and pervasiveness of crime in the developing world is something not always understood from outside.
I’m watching the progress that Dell is making with their second desktop Linux effort and am increasingly wondering how long before the Linux supporters make it clear to Dell this is a bad idea.
