The first £50 OLPC laptops could ship to children in emerging economies within months. PC Advisor speaks to the people behind the project to see how they made the impossible possible.
When plans to build and distribute a £50 laptop to schoolchildren in emerging economies were first announced two years ago, the people behind the scheme had their fair share of critics.
If you aren’t playing the closed beta of the new Lord of the Rings MMORPG - Shadows of Angmar, hopefully these ingame screenshots will hold you over. Enjoy!
Fact is that Linus has submitted some patches that seem to be very beneficial from the usability point of view. Besides, you can't just ignore Linus. What seems to be the problem with some GNOME developers and project managers (not only Jeff Waugh) is that they don't accept critical input, not even constructive one.
Lately, I'm finding myself setting up the same set of packages on Ubuntu as I build not just lots of virtual machines, but as I'm converting some of my Windows workstations and servers over to Ubuntu as well. To replicate the process, I looked at building a custom installation CD, but that seemd the wrong approach. Debian and Ubuntu have a handy way to get a list of everything that the aptitude package manager is keeping track of.
GNU/Linux is known for its diversity and freedom of choice. There are multiple window managers and desktop environments, many competing systems for handling sound, graphics and hardware autodetection. This diversity is the power and weakness of free software. Exactly the same problem concerns installing software in GNU/Linux. There are currently at least 5 popular ways of doing it:
In a recent blog entry, kernel hacker Greg Kroah-Hartman offered the services of the Linux kernel community to create free Linux device drivers for companies. Recently, Kroah-Hartman revealed on his blog that companies are taking him up on the community's offer.
A conversation that I had yesterday has reminded me of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct and what we try to stand for as an Ubuntu community. Any Ubuntu Member (official) is required to sign this article. For those unfamiliar with the Code of Conduct I wanted to share it here.
I find Linus’ GNOME-bashing phenomenally, umm, retarded. GNOME is made for those who want computers to be usable. I am sure there are many who appreciate KDE’s configurability, but the first feeling that hits me on logging into KDE is a feeling of being lost.
MEPIS Linux founder Warren Woodford began, a year ago, to migrate MEPIS from Debian to Ubuntu packages, and in July achieved the first Ubuntu-based simplyMEPIS release. In light of the recently announced Linspire/Ubuntu collaboration, DesktopLinux.com asked Woodford to clarify the MEPIS/Ubuntu relationship.
Due to a beastie in the submissions system, the aKademy 2007 Programme Committee have extended the deadline for talk proposals until February 23rd.
My friend John was trying to think of a way to explain the problem with digital rights management to his dad and friend of ours who don't see what's wrong with it. He compiled a list of examples of DRM-related problems to help people understand what the big deal is with DRM.
On IRC last night I was pointed to a new secure linux distro... this one simply called Hardened Linux. The individual whom I was speaking with ("Intensity") was wondering why there needed to be YASLD (Yet Another Secure Linux Distro). Interested, I was reading through the page to see if there was anything unique...
The open source movement was created by amateurs, and amateurs are still important to its success. But as more professional organizations become involved splits develop. I got a good taste of it this week after writing about Debian.
A year ago (actually about 15 months, if memory serves), before Beryl and before Compiz, 3ddesktop was a popular toy. It doesn’t compare to a full-scale Beryl rig with all the bells and whistles, but it’s light enough not to need extraordinary hardware and easy enough to set up that it doesn’t need much explanation.
The number of linux distributions just keeps on increasing every now and then a new distro pops up claiming to be different from other but most of them are remarkably similar. However Dreamlinux was one distro i was highly impressed with.
I was recently thrilled to discover XMAME. XMAME is the Unix/Linux port of MAME, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. It installs and runs without a hitch on an average Linux setup, and may even have a package ready for your system. But getting XMAME isn't enough; you need ROMs. Some ROMs come with the software in packages that I've tried.
Without a total eclipse in almost two-and-one-half years, sky gazers will be able to observe a total lunar eclipse on Saturday, March 3, 2007 from the eastern Americas, the United Kingdom, Europe, Africa, Iceland, Greenaldn, Arctic, the Middle East in western Asia.
Observations I drew from this week's LinuxWorld OpenSolutions Summit are that (1) location does matter, in both physical and market space and (2) some people have a strange notion of what constititues an IT solution. Regarding market space – namely how to go about creating some – the interesting news at the summit was the annoucement of a new Open Solutions Alliance.
The Institute of Informatics and Communication, University of Delhi South Campus, has announced its second annual inter-collegiate open source technical festival, Envisage '07 to be held on 24-25th February 2007.
