The founder of the Ubuntu-project talks in an interview about the integration of proprietary drivers, the One Laptop per Child project and "great applications" from Microsoft.
A few months back the Linux NTFS project released beta drivers for full read-and-write access to NTFS partitions. Previously, read-only support was offered in the kernel, with write support considered unstable and for developers only.
With tax day approaching in America, we at the Software Freedom Law Center wanted to share some important information about the hidden taxes added to every copy of Microsoft's Windows operating system. If you run a computer using Windows, you're not just paying for the programmers who put the program together and the corporate operations that brought it to market.
Bruteforce attacks shouldn't pose a real security risk to any server but are still annoying and clog up your logfiles. Many methods to block these break-in attempts exist, like BlockHosts, Fail2ban or rate-limiting incoming connections. However, on my search I also came across one tool for which I couldn't find an easy guide: geoip.
Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, will announce on April 18 that it has joined the GNOME Foundation's advisory board.
Long hampered by driver issues (especially surrounding wireless networking), Linux has failed to take off in mainstream markets. Ubuntu (and its Kubuntu and Edubuntu brethren) have had more success than most owing to their easy installs and smart interfaces. April 19th marks the release date for the latest and greatest Ubuntu, version 7.04.
Serial entrepreneur Peter Dawe, who helped bring the internet to the UK, is launching a "safe" Linux distro tailored for the technophobe.
The idea behind his BabelLinux distro is to give users a free, go-anywhere bootable OS, which is likely to be attractive to operators of public internet PCs.
Many Linux applications don’t have to be installed manually because most distributions have implemented a package management system to make it easier for you to install software. But that’s not always the case. Some programs only offer tarball packages for download, which have to be compiled from source. We’ll show you how to do that.
Let's face it: Unix-Linux (and vice-versa) printing is never easy. There are always many alternatives to choose from when planning your printing configuration, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Do you print local, direct-attached or use Samba? How will your Windows clients print?
It was just a bit of text advocating open data formats that was slipped into a Florida State Senate bill at the last minute with no fanfare, but within 24 hours three Microsoft-paid lobbyists, all wearing black suits, were pressuring members of the Senate Committee on Governmental Operations (COGO) to remove the words they didn't like from Senate bill 1974.
UNIX history embeds the UNIX way with the notion of software tools, also the title of a work by UNIX gurus Brian Kernighan and P.J.Plauger, as key concept; small, well designed text-based tools operating from the command line which do one job very well and can readily be connected to satisfy more complex tasks.
The doors are finally open to register for Ubuntu Live, our first global Ubuntu user conference. It is being hosted by O’Reilly Conferences in the prelude to OSCon in the same venue, and exists “to provide a meeting place for Ubuntu users, contributors, and partners–and the Ubuntu-curious”.
The list of sessions is already impressive. Let’s meet up in Portland!
Tower of Defence games are by far the most enjoyable games I have played till now; barring perhaps the classic Pacman which is my all time favourite. Among the numerous Tower of Defence games, the Desktop Tower of Defence game outshines the rest of them.
Every computer after booting and going through the POST diagnostics (extra points for those who know what POST means) looks for a boot loader on the active partition for instructions on what to do next. Generally this is to load an operating system.
To save you over ONE-THIRD of a million dollars, I'll take some drastic measures.
The Web is the one area of technology where free software is almost the norm - and frequently best of class. There are so many free applications out on the Web that help you surf better, work with e-mail better, and also keep your computer safer that the difficulty is in finding the best.
I remember a couple of months ago being warned by an acquaintance from the Linux crowd that within that community there are some very closed minds. Never has that remark hit home as hard as in the past two weeks. However, it appears that winds of change are afoot, with a growing rift between some old guard stalwarts and the stewards of the increasingly popular Ubuntu distribution.
This tutorial shows how you can create backups of LVM partitions with an LVM feature called LVM snapshots. An LVM snapshot is an exact copy of an LVM partition that has all the data from the LVM volume from the time the snapshot was created.
A number of readers have called me a Linux hater due to some straightforward points that I’ve made in previous articles. In reality, I’m not a Linux hater, and I try to make that clear as much as I can because the operating system is getting better all the time.
One of the major graphics programs in the free software domain has been GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). It has similar capabilities as Adobe Photoshop and can be used for a variety of tasks, including photo editing and image composition. GIMPshop was designed to specifically ease the transition for Photoshop users.
