Last month, Chinese Red Flag Software, Japanese Miracle Linux, and South Korean HaanSoft jointly released the GNU/Linux-based operating system Asianux 2.0. To see how much of the introductory hoopla was hype and hot air, I download the ISOs to test the distribution.
You will never be 100% "secure" because the upper limit is bound by human stupidity. The best you can do is to reduce the threats to just below that level.
After a while, and a lot of hard work, the software's feature set becomes more complete and achieves a higher level of stability. At this point, the project is ready for users who lack either the willingness or ability to delve into the code. These are the users on which to build a business model. They are the market.
A little over a month ago, I set out to find out just how popular open-source software has become within big business. Here's some of what I learned while I was researching.
When Version 1.0 of Firefox was released last November, it caused a sensation as a seemingly more secure and feature-rich alternative to Internet Explorer. Since then, Firefox has achieved what no other browser had accomplished in years: attaining a sizable market share at Internet Explorer's expense.
There's consensus, however, on one critical aspect of today's innovation landscape - and that's the shift away from the closed, internalised attitudes of the past, to a more open approach.
This is the third and final part of my series of articles on public key encryption in Linux. In this article, I describe how to integrate GnuPG with the Thunderbird e-mail client so you can send and receive secure private e-mail.
Linus Torvalds' deputy has claimed that the development of the Linux kernel is slowing down, with noticeably less features and bug fixes planned for a future version.
If Dell is to continue to grow, making inroads into the enterprise market is essential. Chavis wants the world to know that her group is doing just that, with the help of an unlikely ally: Linux.
Writing a tips article is tricky. Especially for such a hallowed and "hardcore" distribution as Slackware. Veteran users want incredibly good tips. New users considering giving Slack a whirl, want tips that bring accessibility and understanding to Slackware.
Find that balance here.
When you need a manual, especially regarding computers, then you really, REALLY need that manual! And if you're needing to get started with Linux (either through desparation or sheer annoyance with alternatives), then you probably need to just go ahead and grab that beer and settle in with a copy of Linux Made Easy.
IBM today announced that Bryant University, ranked the second most connected campus in America*, has committed to open-source computing by moving its entire data center from proprietary Sun Solaris systems to the IBM POWER™ microprocessor architecture with the open-source Linux® operating system.
Once a curiosity of computer rooms, open-source software applications are now giving commercial programs a run for their money in public-sector information technology shops. Here is a closer look at five open-source products and why they are winning favor in government IT shops.
Started just over ten years ago, the PHP programming language has become the most popular programming language for web application development. PHP 5, the most recent release, adds even more features — all the while remaining approachable to novices. Here’s a look at the life of PHP 5 so far.
Windows is broken and Microsoft has admitted it. In an unprecedented attempt to explain its Longhorn problems and how it abandoned its traditional way of working, the normally secretive software giant has given unparalleled access to The Wall Street Journal, even revealing how Vice President Jim Allchin, personally broke the bad news to Bill Gates.
The end of the world is near. At last that of the Unix world. That’s the prediction of Donald Feinberg, vice-president of Gartner. “Linux is coming, Unix is dead.”
Here's a big question that has been making the rounds of late: "Is the PC dead as a gaming platform?"
Myah is a simple and easy to use livecd for standard Intel or AMD powered computers. They state, "Our goal is to bring you the best free Operating System and to inform PC owners they don't have to spend their money on Windows or OS X." I don't know if it's the best, but it's certainly a pretty darn good one.
Symphony OS is one of the most original Linux distros available today. Recently Ryan Quinn, the lead developer of Symphony OS took some time out to talk with me about the distro and a few other subjects.
