It's a fair question, I think. Should Linspire give up Linspire 5.0+, contribute time and resources to Freespire (amongst other distribution projects) and concentrate on making Linux services the core aspect of their company?
The British government could save more than £600 million a year if it used more open source software, the shadow chancellor has estimated. George Osborne said the savings would cut 5% off Whitehall's annual IT bill.

One of the big visual changes just happened in KDE 4, the transition of kdelibs to the Oxygen Icon set. This transition is still in progress, and it includes a massive icon naming scheme change that affects thousands of files. But, the Oxygen artwork project much is more than just an icon set, it's a unified way to do artwork for KDE 4.
Data can be lost in different ways some of them are because of hardware failures,you accidentally delete or overwrite a file. Some data loss occurs as a result of natural disasters and other circumstances beyond your control. Now we will see a easy backup and restore tool called "sbackup"
Thunar is a file manager that is shipped by default with XFCE and is a integral part of XFCE desktop environment. It is similar to Nautilus but uses much less resource as compared to Nautilus, and in fact one of the goals of creating Thunar was to create a file manager that was fast, clean and easy to use.
Doodle is a tool to quickly search the documents on a computer. Doodle builds an index using meta-data contained in the documents and allows fast searches on the resulting database.

Release Candidate 1 of SimplyMEPIS 6.5 has just been released and since I was planning on reviewing beta 7, I figured I might as well download RC1 before doing my official review. I am using the 64-bit version on my desktop.
The University of Melbourne's University Systems Project is set to undergo its largest transformation since its launch four years ago with the core Unix systems to be replaced by Linux by the end of the year.
Oracle Corp. promised to take the Linux software world by storm last October, but the major expansion by one of the world's largest software companies so far has failed to show momentum.
Ubuntu Linux was started in 2004 by Mark Shuttleworth: an entrepreneur that made his fortunes by selling his company Thawte to VeriSign. According to distrowatch.com, Ubuntu has held the number 1 spot for several years as the most popular Linux distribution. And even at this point in time, with the top Linux distribution, the future is very uncertain.
What LiveCD distro is out there that uses KDE as the primary desktop, but is stocked with best of breed apps appropriate to the questions the lab is asking and answering? Knoppix would seem to be the obvious answer.
Dell's latest launch has really taken off. Unfortunately for Dell's crumbling profitability, it's a website called IdeaStorm, not a new PC. The problem for Dell is that by far the most popular suggestion is one that Dell will find hard to implement.
Ubuntu enjoys giving it releases funny animal names. There have been "warty warthog", "hoary hedgehog", "breezy badger", "dapper drake", "edgy eft", and the coming "feisty fawn." Well, with nothing better to blog about this week, I've decided to provide my suggestions for names.
Periodically, the suggestion is made.
