Red Hat does not sign up to the standard because it finds some elements lacking. Compliance is not audited, for instance, forcing users to rely on the distribution's reputation and track record.
Logs… Any Linux system will generate many log files by default, containing various information about the operation of the system. If no rotation would occur on the various log files, then they will just grow bigger and bigger, filling up the space, but most importantly making it very difficult to find any information that we might be looking for in those log files.
If you really want a free and good replacement for Microsoft Office, you should be looking to OpenOffice.org, not Google. OK, so it is rather neat that Google is releasing a Web-based spreadsheet, but come on, is it really that big a deal?
A science-fiction cyber-thriller centering around -- and partially written on -- a Sharp Zaurus PDA running Linux is now available in paperback from Amazon.com. Digital Life, by Kevin Milne, aims to depict real-life hacking and digital insurgence more accurately than popular media.
In days gone by, the personification of Linux might have conjured up the image of a hotshot college kid full of half-baked ideas and sharp edges. But that college kid has now graduated into the business world, and unleashed his furious entrepreneurial spirit. Today, Linux has a sharper, more refined edge than before, and has branched out into private, public, enterprise and governmental sectors. Linux also spans all manner of hardware platforms, and serves an incredibly wide variety of purposes.
PapugLinux is a minimal linux live CD based on the Gentoo distribution for x86 computer architecture. The goal of PapugLinux is to provide a minimal but functional free operating system and to be runable on most computers, from 64MB old systems to the latest powerful configurations.
OSDir has some nice shots of PapugLinux in the PapugLinux 06.1 Screenshot Tour.
Every now and then, someone comes up with a fun title. 'Linux Annoyances for Geeks' is a definitely fun - and accurate - title for this book. There aren't that many books that really deal with the things that are annoyances, because the annoyances usually come from the late phone calls or the unanswered emails on a list. That's what this book is supposed to be for.
This tutorial will bring you through dpkg, the debian package manager. As I introduce apt, I will now introduce dpkg and show how to search which files are installed by a package, which packages are installed on your system.

A three-week-long flame war in debian-devel over the new Java Distribution License has culminated in Anthony Towns, the newly elected Debian Project Lead, offering to separate Debian from its legal representative, SPI. This came as a response to SPI member John Goerzen's objections to the Debian project's interaction with Sun's legal team around the new JDL license without review from SPI's lawyers.
The ability to make outlines, or to view any structured document in an outline view, are touted features of Microsoft Word and just about every word processor out there. Linux has its ways here, too. The Vim editor has folding, and Emacs has Outline mode, which lets you selectively view documents by their main headings. You can hide and view the text under headings, move quickly between headings, and easily mark whole branches of the outline for cutting.
