Blag Linux and Gnu (BLAG) is a Fedora Core 3 based distribution of the Linux kernel and Gnu utilities which runs on the x86 processor. BLAG aims to provide a totally free (as in speech) operating system, and it is one of only 5 distributions which are free by the standard of GNU. With this information in hand I thought I'd give it a spin.
Linux-based phones are increasingly prevalent in the marketplace, and demand for them is growing. Supporting information is readily available, whether from industry-analyst reports, e-newsletters or the latest Linux-themed conference.
VMware is opening up its virtual machine disk format specification, but today's news is about sharing, not open sourcing technologies. VMware's decision to share at no cost its format specification with developers and vendors will spur big gains in virtualization innovation.
While Red Hat muddles along ignoring the bulk of computer users, those longing to find a usable alternative to Windows on the desktop can breathe a sigh of relief that another vendor has finally taken the bull by the horns with its latest Linux release.

Using Really Simple Syndication (RSS) or Atom feeds to check your favorite sites and blogs can be a big time-saver. However, if you use more than one computer or operating system, managing your feeds and tracking updates is more difficult. Gregarius, a Web-based server-side aggregator that supports RSS, RDF, and Atom feeds, can help.
The Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC) is due to announce the formation of the Software Freedom Conservancy Monday. The conservancy aims to make it easier for developers of free and open-source software (FOSS) projects around the world to become tax-exempt corporate entities.
Embedded developers are increasingly turning to open-source tools for building reliable and flexible systems and software. Open-source code can provide both raw material for building system software and applications, and development tools for creating that software.
Phaeronix is a "gentoo love-sources RR4 CD with reiser4 enabled grub, auto hardware detection with nvidia 3D support , ready for multimedia, internet, and arabic. It is optimised for i686." Once upon a time it featured a harddrive installer, that option has been pulled for at least now, although one can still manually install it very much like a stage 3 gentoo install. Since the site states on about every page that "This is not the final version. Please don't attempt to install it on your harddrive" we looked at Phaeronix today in its intended livecd format.
Amid a growing cacophony of demand, the two largest Linux vendors, Red Hat and Novell, plan to bake virtualization into their enterprise products slated to ship later this year. But technology managers are mixed on the approach.
Balancing commercial interest with community interest is important for businesses looking at open source, said open source consultant Pia Waugh in a presentation at Linuxworld 2006 in Sydney last week.
In the past, I've explained to friends why the CBC's use of Windows Media Player's streaming format disables access to the site for Linux and FLOSS users. The gist of this argument has been that there's no Windows Media Player software available on Linux.
A few weeks ago, Jonathan had asked me on IRC in passing why kprinter and KDEPrint 3.5.1 didn't work with CUPS-1.2. My reply had been like "CUPS-1.2 hasn't even released an alpha or beta tarball -- w.t.h. does Ubuntu Dapper plan to include an SVN version of a piece of core software which has a yet unknown release date??"
Everybody who's experienced the fun of customizing Firefox to his or her liking has a favorite extension. It's empowering to tweak your browser as you see fit, but the price often comes in the form of slower performance and memory hogging. Though Firefox has long been accused of leaking memory, there are simple ways to reduce RAM usage and increase speed. Here are a few extensions and tips designed to lighten your load.
Probably the most common reason against KDE is the installation size of the full KDE suite. On the other hand, installing kde with split ebuilds requires some research about the who-is-who of KDE packages. This howto is also for those of you who are new to KDE on Gentoo.
Spencer is the inventor of Asterisk, a free software program that establishes phone calls over the Internet and handles voicemail, caller ID, teleconferencing and a host of novel features for the phone. Spencer, who is all of 29 years old, is poised to disrupt the $7 billion market for office telecom switches (often called PBXs) much the way the Linux open-source computer operating system crushed the price of business computing.
At the beginning of last month we published our preview of the ASRock 939SLI32-eSATA2, however, now that Fedora Core 5 was released two weeks ago, and we have in our hands the NVIDIA 1.0-8751 Beta Linux display drivers, we are prepared to deliver the remainder of this article. This portion of the article includes the Linux compatibility, overclocking, and of course, its performance by means of benchmarks.
The Linux operating system is expanding from company data centers onto employees’ desktops, one of several trends that a local technology trade show producer will highlight at this year’s LinuxWorld exposition.
