for the last year or so there have been two sets of thoughts squirming in the back of my mind with regards to the name "kde" and how we're going to communicate what that means in a post-4.0 world.

Today's Internet no longer functions simply by responding to requests for HTML-coded Web pages. Discover an industrial-grade solution to this age-old problem -- namely, session state. This article demonstrates how Apache Geronimo maintains the state of thousands of simultaneous connections so that IT managers can breathe easier.
SC06, "the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage," was held last week in Tampa, Florida. I took my video camera with me so that I could give you a little feeling of what the show was like, and even grabbed a couple of shots of the "by invitation only" Beowulf Users Group party that was held at a bar a few blocks away from the Tampa Convention Center.
Red Hat and its JBoss division came out swinging against the recent assault by Microsoft and Oracle on Red Hat's open-source middleware and operating system technology base.
I have recently been reading a book called Ubuntu Hacks by Jonathan Oxer, Kyle Rankin & Bill Childers, published by O'Reilly and Associates. I didn't expect to become a Grand Ubuntu Master by reading a single book, but I was hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks. If you want to really get to know Ubuntu, then you should grab a copy of this book and follow the bouncing dot.
Webilder is a handy little program that allows you to download photos from flickr and import photos from webshots to display as backgrounds on your Linux desktop.
A week or so ago I went along to the Ubuntu Developer Summit at Google HQ. This sort of conversation makes me very cynical about the relevance of the OSDL and LSB. It was a shame that Mark Shuttleworth didn’t show up - his blog entry is the only reason I went along.
In this article I describe how to install and setup the Cacti in a ISPConfig Server. There aren't many differences from installing in other ISP Managers or standalone Apache installations. I tried many others solutions, but Cacti is very simple and fast to implement.
For some, their Web browser of choice is just as emotionally charged as their choice in operating systems. For the rest of us, there are several quality Web browsers to choose from, and Firefox 2 certainly holds its own.
Want to run Linux on the PlayStation 3 but can't be bothered with the hassle of installing it? Then head over to online auction site eBay where one of Sony's next-generation consoles is on offer pre-loaded with Fedora Core 5 Linux.
Ubuntu will run fine after the installation. Windows XP will run too but not for long. And the useful Dell Utility Partition is gone (because the MBR has changed). You think you can fix it by FIXMBR and get the Windows NT Bootloader back. Great. You just mess up your harddisk further.

In 1982, I attended computer camp. I know, this sounds like a "One time, at band camp. . ." story, but it's not. This was computer camp. It took place at the little-known Eastern Oregon State College, and it was the first year EOSC offered computer camp.
Although its name sounds like that of a bacterium, Coccinella is a nice cross-platform open source Jabber client. While Jabber, and IM clients in general, are a dime a dozen, Coccinella sports a few nifty features that make it worth considering.
Open source databases can save enterprises up to 60 per cent over proprietary products, according to data collected by Forrester Research.
Software maker Adobe may sue Microsoft if it is not satisfied with the European Union's steps to ensure Microsoft's new operating system does not shut out rivals, Adobe's chief executive said.
Stop the presses! Google extended its advertising model to that most mobile of media, the newspaper. It sounds crazy, especially in light of the reaction to certain advertising moves the search engine made earlier this year. But this latest maneuver just might be more successful.
Open source licences... much of a muchness? Indeed. Let me start by saying, if you happen to think that all open source software is created equal, you are very, very wrong.
