Another six months, another release from the Ubuntu folks. The Ubuntu 7.04 release, better known as Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, is another cutting-edge, but not bleeding-edge, release that shows what Linux is capable of on the desktop. I've been running it since the early betas, and have found that it's the best Ubuntu release yet.
Mozilla developers have updated the Firefox 3 (Gran Paradiso) development release schedule providing details on what to expect on each of them. Most notable change is that milestone releases will be now date based, with monthly releases, a departure from the when ready basis that has ruled since I can remember.
Ubuntu has a lot of things going for it. I learned a lot through it, and it eased my entry into Linux from Windows. But what my title is trying to say is this distrowatch deserves credit for Ubuntu’s meteoric rise to fame.
Xbindkeys is a program that allows you to launch shell commands with your keyboard or your mouse under X Window. It links commands to keys or mouse buttons, using its configuration file. It does not depend on the window manager and can capture all keyboard keys.

Isn't it annoying how things in life pop up and get in the way of what you actually intended to do?
I didn't intend to pick on Novell when I woke up this morning.
There’s a split in the Linux world that transcends distributions: the divide between the GNOME and KDE desktops. That continues even as the two halves grow closer to each other through shared technologies.
One of the oldest virtualization products, Win4Lin, is starting to show signs of aging. Win4Lin flourished in 2000, when competition was sparse and expensive. But seven years on, not only are there several virtualization products, but almost half a dozen are available for free. With no visible improvements over its previous version, Win4Lin Pro Desktop 4.0 is now outdated and outclassed.
This tutorial describes how you can install and configure the Snort IDS (intrusion detection system) and BASE (Basic Analysis and Security Engine) on an Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake) system. With the help of Snort and BASE, you can monitor your system - with BASE you can perform analysis of intrusions that Snort has detected on your network. Snort will use a PostgreSQL database to store/log the data it gathers.
"Texstar and the Ripper Gang are pleased to announce the release of the fourth and final test release of PCLinuxOS 2007! Mirrors are currently being updated so please allow 24 hours for all mirrors to sync up.
Less than a week after the latest Ubuntu Linux release - version 7.04 "Feisty Fawn" - users are already crying out for driver support to rival that for Windows in the next release.
The Ubuntuforums.org Web site is a public bulletin board for discussion of Ubuntu Linux, including the next release "Gutsy Gibbon" due in October 2007.
The prevailing wisdom about Linux on the desktop runs something like this: "I'll believe Linux is ready for the desktop as soon as you can give me a Linux distribution that even my grandmother can run."
Are open source security tools really as secure as those available for sale?
Production-quality XenSource virtualisation is the main selling point here, with optional clustering and storage virtualisation to go with it. But there's a lot more besides, making the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux a compelling solution for businesses of all sizes.
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to install 2007.1 on a HP TX1120 laptop (a tablet).
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to The Netherlands to talk to another developer of the KDE-PIM realm. Saving both your hands and your email frustrations - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Tom Albers.
A SHORT INTRO

Located in: Culemborg, that's just south of Utrecht, which is in the middle of The Netherlands.
Hitting the web this morning was Fedora 7 Test 4, which of course I have been waiting to load up on some non-production machines since I hadn't updated against Rawhide in about two weeks. However, I have become to feel that Fedora is loosing some of its charm. Having been a Fedora user since the beginning, I have always been enticed by the latest Fedora releases whether it be stable or not.
A project that aims to deliver low-priced laptops with string pulleys to the world's poorest children may have a new market: U.S. schools.
The nonprofit "One Laptop per Child" project said on Thursday it might sell versions of its kid-friendly laptops in the United States, reversing its previous position of only distributing them to the poorest nations.
Have Michael Dell and Mark Shuttleworth come to some kind of understanding that will see
machines out on the shelves soon with Ubuntu installed?
I will admit right away that I have not been all that hip to the Mandriva side of the fence these days, especially regarding PCLinuxOS. For myself, I have been happy with Ubuntu and for others looking at expanding into an addition OS, I have been pushing Linux Mint. Well, after looking at PCLinuxOS from head to toe, I have some new insights that I would like to share.
