What with the popularity of the “Get a Mac” campaign, the inevitable spoofs are numerous. However, Apple’s advertising agency has created a veritable fortress of metaphor with these advertisements. The archetypes seem so accurate that it’s hard to get past the inherent truthiness of the original commercials. Most spoof attempts that I have seen have been pretty weak.
Microsoft and Novell's partnership is more than the cosmetic addition of Microsoft as a platinum partner to Novell's annual BrainShare partner conference. Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian said during his keynote speech that the company's recent partnership with Microsoft represented an "ecosystem change" for Novell.

Mozilla announced the Mozilla Community Beta Program, which have started pushing Firefox updates release candidates to users who have previously downloaded a beta version.
Many times a simple screencast showing how to do something by using a series of screenshots in sequence in a video can explain what paragraph after paragraph of words cannot. Linux and a few open source applications make the job of creating such screencasts easy.
PC World recently did a feature article on Operating Systems, and named Ubuntu as their favorite Linux distribution. I decided to document my experience working with Ubuntu, and this second article, Part 2, will detail my experience installing and using applications. I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu, 6.1.

This rant isn't about silver at all; we figure once or twice a year we're entitled to a tirade of a different color (although in a strange way this one is connected to silver, too, because silver bulls by their very definition are a contrary lot).
If you've been running Linux for a few years (from before all the clever point-and-click stuff was added to the Linux desktop) you probably find yourself regularly having to open a terminal window to issue a couple of commands to get things working properly.
Ian Murdock founded Debian GNU/Linux nearly fifteen years ago, and today it provides the foundations for many well-known distros such as Ubuntu and Knoppix. LXF caught up with Ian, who currently chairs the Linux Standards base, and asked him about Debian politics, leadership and the rise of Ubuntu...

Open source technologies already permeate most data centers, and their influence is spreading. However, data center managers who wouldn't think twice about dropping a new Linux server into a rack feel very differently about building an open source firewall as the main barrier between their own network and the great unwashed. Security remains outside the open-source comfort zone.
Recently published research by Venture Development Corporation (VDC; Natick, MA, USA; www.vdc-corp.com) indicates increasing adoption of Linux in embedded system-development projects.
Within four days, I’ve reformatted my hard drive and installed Ubuntu and Kubuntu in quick successions…twice. So that’s a total of four Linux installations in four days. Once again, I was haunted by the ghost of indecision. Should I go for Ubuntu with the clean, minimalistic Gnome, or embrace Kubuntu with the fancy, aesthetic KDE?

High-performance computing (HPC) has moved from the domain of government and academic laboratories to being an essential component of the design process. Today, it is almost unthinkable to develop the key components of a car, airplane or even many consumer products without computer-assisted structural or impact analysis.
