The funniest thing about Symphony OS is the posts you'll sometimes see asking if its Mezzo Desktop can be ported to Linux. The reason it is funny is that Symphony most definitely is Linux - it's based on Knoppix and nobody is even trying to hide its Linux roots:
Eurotech's U.S. arm, Parvus, will demonstrate the company's innovative wrist-worn PC at a military technology conference June 19 in Washington, D.C. The Zypad WL 1000 runs Linux or Windows CE, and features hands-free operation, wireless networking, GPS tracking, and patent-pending power management technology.
There's an old phrase you may have heard, “There are some things that money can't buy”. A recent advertising campaign has appended, “For everything else...”. Clichéd as it is, the phrase can be turned on its head to neatly sum up the differences between Microsoft Office and OpenOffice.
In issue 81 of Linux format, on the newsstands now, we have an interview with kernel coding guru Greg Kroah-Hartman. Famous for his work on drivers and the Linux USB subsystem, Greg now works for Novell doing what he loves -- hacking the kernel. Here's a few of the questions and answers:
Since version 7, PowerPC versions of SUSE Linux have been conspicuously absent from the SUSE desktop lineup. With version 10.0, PowerPC support returned to SUSE, but Novell has quite a few kinks that need to be worked out before this distro hums like its x86 counterpart, starting with some killer problems with installation.

If Microsoft Corp. investors are concerned about the company's lacklustre shares, they must be downright terrified by the legions of computer programmers who want to drive the technology behemoth into the ground. Open-source software are invading Microsoft's home turf with increasing ferocity. Linux is the best example.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. I'm all for making it easier for new users to get into Linux but I'm not sure this book has the right approach. On the one hand it is so simplistic as to be almost patronising. And then quickly it shifts into a gear which expects users to be comfortable with the Linux command line.
During the day, the machines run Microsoft's Windows operating system. But at night that all changes. At 11 p.m, the students are gone, the doors are locked and the lights are out. The workstations begin to automatically shut down. But about 400 of them are soon back up and running a GNU/Linux operating system as one big connected cluster of processing power -- a grid computer.
While the football worldcup 2006 is taking place in Germany, an open source soccer game has been released recently. The Team abround slam soccer developed a cross platform football manager licenced unter the GPL.
Which operating system is the most secure? Windows, Linux or Mac? Jim Kukral, creator of http://www.InfectMyPC.com is going to find out by pitting two PC's and a Macintosh computer against each other in the ultimate battle to see which one will survive the longest under deliberate attacks from spam, viruses and spyware.
Many feel that the the command line offers only archaic system tools crafted by gnarly old Unix geeks who cut their coding teeth before there was an Internet, let alone a blogosphere. They are sadly mistaken. The focus of this week's CLI Magic column is an example of a new CLI tool designed exclusively for Formula 1 -- sorry, NASCAR -- fans. It's called Live-F1, and it brings realtime race and practice data from Formula 1 events around the globe to your Linux terminal window.
There are several times when you'll be writing a script, or a program, which needs to communicate with the desktop user and here we'll look at two of the more modern approaches.
I’ve read and reviewed a number of books where the author was describing someone else’s innovations. Finally I am looking at a text where the creator describes how to use his creation.
The ability to export remote file systems is extremely useful, which is why programs like NFS and Samba are so popular. Unfortunately, both are typically tied to a local network which limits their usage somewhat. An ideal file system would allow for encrypted connections to a remote site, without resulting in complicated VPN connections. This is exactly what shfs, the SHell File System, does.
BackupPC is a high-performance, enterprise-grade system for backing up Linux and WinXX PCs and laptops to a server's disk. BackupPC is highly configurable and easy to install and maintain.
Usually one might expect nothing special from a minor release. But as you know: Amarok is different! The developers of your favorite media player have held a meeting in the Netherlands, all to improving Amarok!
