There are a lot of great new programs and innovations expected in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Novell-led Mono project isn't one of them.
Microsoft and Novell have agreed to disagree on whether certain open source offerings infringe Microsoft patents and whether certain Microsoft offerings infringe Novell patents.... We at Microsoft respect Novell's point of view on the patent issue, even while we respectfully take a different view.
While writing a script in a text editor, suddenly, I sense a strong desire to refer the bash manual. To stop the current job and return to shell prompt, press Ctrl+z, and here’s what I see:
For some people, when Novell recently made a deal with Microsoft, they might as well have sold their soul to the devil. I'm fed up with people acting like Novell has become a heretic in the Church of Open Source.
Novell CEO Ron Hovsepian has issued a public letter addressing concerns about the recent agreement between Novell and Microsoft and how it might impact Linux customers. The letter does not appear to be available on Novell's homepage so far, so I will reprint the full text here:
Opti, a chip-oriented intellectual property company, said it has filed a lawsuit alleging that Advanced Micro Devices violated three patents with its Opteron processors and other products.
After a quick look at: man 8 consolehelper, man 8 userhelper, man 8 pam, and man 8 pam_console, and at the way other applications use PAM, I made my own way to add a "Root File Manager" icon in a distro that only has kdesu (which I will not use).
Organizing your favorite Web sites with bookmarks on Firefox can be tedious, especially when you want to keep your bookmarks synchronized across several computers at the same time. That's why I started using del.icio.us, the social bookmarking service now owned by Yahoo! Yahoo! recently released a del.icio.us bookmarks extension for Firefox that fully integrates del.icio.us with Firefox bookmarks.
