The One Laptop Per Child, or OLPC, plan is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the history of the IT industry, according to Tony Roberts, chief executive and founder of U.K. charity Computer Aid International.
Debian Projekt Leader Anthony Towns and his deputy Steve McIntyre give answers about the Debian project, the tasks of the Project Leader and future directions. The questions have been selected by Pro-Linux from the proposed questions of the readership.
Harken back with me, faithful reader, to the days of yore. Yea and verily, I speak of the days of video arcades, when a quarter of a dollar would buy you frantic minutes whereupon you, as humanity's only hope, were called upon to protect the earth from invading, marauding, aliens. In the spirit of those great arcade games comes SolarWolf, a superb arcarde game inspired by the old Atari game, SolarFox.
Coming out of Norway this morning is the long awaited Opera 9, after previous Beta/preview releases. Opera 9 is focused on being efficient, productive, secure, stylish, and innovative. Some of the new items in Opera 9.0 include Bit Torrent, content blocker, Widgets, site preferences, and more. Here at Phoronix we have a few shots up of Opera v9.0 under Linux.
The Gentoo Store has updated its selection of clothing and schwag. The main addition is the new line-up of women's clothing sporting the Gentoo logo. This was done after requests were made from a few forums users, as well as to help with the proposed Gentoo Women project. Also, some new stickers and other items have been added to the Schwag section of the store, including a nice Gentoo wall clock. Updated CD media will be available after 2006.1 is released.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could dock any application, and not just those that support the docking feature, into the system tray? A simple point-and-click operation is all it takes, thanks to a couple of helpful applications called KDocker and Alltray.
Chris Wright and the -stable team have already put out a 184.108.40.206 Linux kernel just a few days after the final .17 release. This one contains a small fix for a loop in sctp.
Also: Kernel release: 220.127.116.11
If you are a Windows user who interacts with Linux on a regular or occasional basis, you will eventually feel disenfranchised. For those brave souls who migrate away from Windows and into the Linux realm there will always be a void left where Windows functionality is unmatched on the Linux platform, or where Linux lacks a suitable replacement. Win4Lin provides a happy middle ground.
Last week we provided a brief overview of Nagios, and explained how it can make your infrastructure monitoring fun and easy. As promised, we'd like to talk a bit more about the configuration files. Nagios does more than just monitor services, so after some configuration clarifications we'll shift focus to explore the more creative uses of Nagios.
Those who currently struggle to maintain what is called “Net Neutrality” on the internet I think have taken too limited an approach to their struggle. What they ask is to maintain an existing status quo that had already been eroded from the original promise and potential of the internet against those who wish to change it even further. It would be far better to challenge it by fighting to actively restore the rights of all internet users.

Opera 9 is Here!
Opera 9 is now available for download! Take a look at the future of Web browsing with the new stuff in Opera 9, including: widgets, BitTorrent support, content blocking, tab preview, source viewer and much more.
Microsoft is coming -- this much virtualisation market leader VMware knows. But the company, led by Diane Greene, seems to know exactly how to stave off the software giant. But is it enough?
Though I dabble with GNU/Linux through the Kubuntu 6.06 installation on an older, less powerful machine, the system I use most often is running Microsoft Windows XP. Despite my choice of operating systems, I use open source software whenever possible.
Apple is, after all, a hardware company, and if Linux and Windows users can now buy Macs safe in the knowledge that they can use both their favourite OS and Mac OS X, or perhaps even all three, on their new machine, they may well see greater adoption in the marketplace.
Last week's Microsoft succession news sparked an array of definitely NOT-for-attribution-comments from those who've watched the company forever. One IM buddy with Linux proclivities rejoiced when it became clear that Gates was stepping back.

The major Web browsers are getting facelifts as they increasingly become the place for handling business transactions and running programs over the Internet rather than simply displaying sites.
OK, you have Linux on your computer. Maybe you had some trouble getting it installed and everything working, but you are past all that, everything is working, and you are ready to start using the computer. Old habits die hard, so hopefully this list helps you get over them.
