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.
Love World of Warcraft, but hate Windows?
So you've heard about Linux, and you’re itching to try it out. Why? Maybe you want to breathe some life into an older computer that can't run Windows XP or Vista. Maybe you want to stretch your technical skills a bit. Or, maybe you're just tired of Windows and need a change.
Linux may be an operating system synonymous with a flightless bird, but Loyalty Pacific, the company behind popular retail loyalty and rewards program FlyBuys, has announced it will jet its infrastructure to open source software.
Given how similar Puppy 2.14 was to 2.13, I was wholly unprepared for how different the latest Puppy release, 2.15CE (community edition), is from its predecessors.
Debian is one of the largest, oldest, and most democratic of all the Linux distributions out there. All of these points could be argued to be good or bad depending on your perspective.
Politics aside, there's no arguing Debian hasn't had a significant influence on the Linux world. It spawned Ubuntu, the now most popular desktop out there. It's sparked many a vociferous debate.
A new job brings new toys My new employer has supplied me with a Dell Latitude D520 laptop for programming. It came loaded with Windows XP professional which—ofcourse—had to go. Nothing inhibits productivity quite like Windows—except perhaps for the pool table and game consoles in the lunch room.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: The Summer of Code begins, with 40 KDE projects. Registration opens for Akademy 2007. Hosting proposals invited for Akademy 2008. Further progress in the KBattleship rewrite with sounds and network play integrated, and theming support added to the Bovo game. More work on Strigi file analysers.

A formula is a spreadsheet function entered in a cell, complete with its arguments. They're one of the two or three major applications that first spearheaded the acceptance of the personal computer in the 1980s, and the main tools of advanced spreadsheet use.
At least 32 people were killed and more than two dozen wounded at Virginia Tech university on Monday in the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history, media said.
Fox News, CNN and the student-run university newspaper gave the death toll as 32. Officials earlier said at least 22 people were killed.
It might sound like a rather strange thing to do, but sending yourself email from the command line can prove extremely handy in a lot of circumstances. For example, I have a script that runs every week on my server that emails me and reminds me to copy the latest backups off that actual machine (in case of hard drive failure).
We recently received the following note from Thaddeus H. Black, a Debian developer. We thought he had some interesting things to say about Debian and its development process, so, with his permission, we'm sharing his thoughts with you...
