SCALE 5X, the 2007 Southern California Linux Expo to be held at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Feb. 10 and 11, announced this week that it plans to host a "Women in Open Source" mini-conference on Feb. 9 at the same location.
My first experience with Linux was with Redhat 7.3 back in the day. I liked the security and ability to customize but I was turned off by the difficulty installing packages (dependency hell). I recently installed Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake on my new Windows laptop. My first impression is that Linux has changed dramatically.

When discussing ways to switch to GNU/Linux, one of the biggest difficulties I've found is finding answers to the question, "What can I replace this program with?" It's completely understandable; people don't want to lose functionality. However, Googling for answers can easily lead to confusion and frustration if you don't have the background or knowledge to be able to differentiate between the wheat and the chaff. Is there a comprehensive resource for finding GNU/Linux replacements for Windows software?
Game Informer met with id Software’s John Carmack and Todd Hollenshead to talk about, well, a lot of things. In our hour-long talk, we talked about the state of PC gaming, QuakeCon and the pros and cons of developing for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Enjoy.
I started using BasKet version 0.5 a while back with the intention of reviewing it. I found it useful, but didn't really get excited about it. That all changed once I installed version 0.6. The entire interface has been reworked, making it more useable while adding valuable features. If you're not familiar with it, BasKet is multi-purpose note-taking software with a flexible interface and great organization.
User Mode Linux (UML) allows you to run Linux kernels as user mode processes under a host Linux kernel, giving you a simple way to run several independent virtual machines on a single piece of physical hardware. Let's take a look at UML and how it can give you more bang for the hardware buck, or make it easier to debug the kernel.
Hines Corp. is a management company that oversees a conglomerate of manufacturers in the Midwest and Texas, and a distributorship in New York. It has a diverse IT infrastructure that requires attention around the clock. When Hines CIO Ed Harper decided it was time to consolidate and streamline aging legacy systems, he turned from Microsoft to Linux.
For the last several months I have been using Microsoft Windows XP (WinXP) at work after years of using Linux almost exclusively at home and work. In late December 2005 the computers in my section were replaced with new ones that run WinXP and unfortunately this time installing Linux was not an option. Switching from KDE to WindowsXP at work has seriously impaired my productivity.
The Apache HTTP web server is free to download and is also bundled with many commercial products such as IBM's Websphere and the Oracle database. Hundreds of modules have been developed for it, many million websites depend upon it, and so many applications have been designed around it that it is the obvious choice for anyone considering extending their skills in this direction.
The blogosphere devoured news of the iPhone and now comes the inevitable indigestion. Among the various gripes about price, carrier exclusivity, a non-removable battery, lack of 3G support, and the inability to download or sync wirelessly, to name a few, it is the iPhone's closed system that may be the device's most controversial feature or flaw, depending on your perspective.
I first became interested in Linux in about the year 2000. I was reading everything I could get my hands on by Neal Stephenson and ran into his article In the Beginning was the Command Line. It took a new computer with Windows Millenium Edition installed on it to finally get me to install Linux.
The stable-kernel team has released the Linux kernel 184.108.40.206, which does away with a critical error that occurred when data was being written on hard disks and plugs a number of security holes.
We are only two weeks into 2007 and one trend already seems clear. Open source will fly under the radar in 2007.
It's a little too late for yet another New Year's resolution list. So here is a list of ten ways to take over the world, GNU/Linux style. Taking small bites and a gradual takeover is a decent goal for Linux in 2007. With the lukewarm reception of Microsoft Vista, GNU/Linux is in a better position than ever to be the migration target. No need to purchase a new system just to run eye candy.
In today’s Firefox 3 (code name Gran Paradiso) meeting, developers released a preliminary list of requirements for Firefox 3. The new target release date is sometime in the third quarter this year.
Traditionally (if something I'm doing for a second year can be considered to have a tradition), the last day of my show reporting is devoted to the strange and the silly at CES. However, given that all of the space yesterday went to OLPC coverage, I'm going to have to mix in some actual products in today's coverage.
SabayonLinux 3.26 was released on Jan 7, only a short time after 3.25. This maintenance release is the last of the 3.2 series and the team will now concentrate on 3.3. While many reviews shout accolades to this rising star, Tuxmachines once again suffered a loss of data making our experience a bit mixed. This is a short description of our time with SabayonLinux.
Matthew Aslett of Computer Business Review brings to my attention that a recent article by the Salt Lake Tribune's Bob Mims, "Novell underscores support for free software development", includes an inaccuracy. Because the article has been widely quoted and it is currently linked to on Novell's web site, it seems important to correct it.
British university students are being offered cash incentives to write open source software - and the first beneficiary is a Python programmer from Swansea.
