The pace of change in the open source software business is likely to accelerate in 2007 as developers climb up the software stack from the operating system and databases to applications.
The discussion that broke out on the Linux kernel mailing list this week was just like a squall: a quiet technical discussion that suddenly grew into a deep conversation about the nature of the Linux kernel itself. Would the finest example of GPL software continue to allow proprietary software to be encoded within? The initial answer seemed to be yes. Eventually, Linus Torvalds weighed in on the matter and in his blunt statements made everyone stop and think.
Aiming to customize their solutions to meet the individual needs of teachers and students, a growing number of school systems are ushering in a new breed of school software that relies on open technologies.
The website's name tells it all. BadVista.org, a website run by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) is devoted to the mission of exposing the harms inflicted on computer users by the Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system and promoting free software alternatives that respect users' security and privacy rights.
But: Software Freedom Law Center comes to Microsoft's aid
Linux/Open Source applications are gaining traction in virtually every vertical market and continent because of low costs to deploy, robust security, high flexibility and scalability, and a plethora of quality system and application software that is actively developed and supported by a worldwide community of Open Source developers.
I just finished reading Chris Dawson's article. His statement goes to the core of the problem with this debate — and the misunderstanding that surrounds the debate. Linux was invented to offer an alternative to UNIX — not Windows.
With its little side-flaps extended I can’t help but see this pre-built MythTV PVR as some sort of Transformer, but sadly though its capabilities are broad I don’t think they extend to being a robot in disguise. Still, you could have some pretty good times.
The hot news right out of the oven is that RPM - the famous package manager that is the base of all Red Hat based Linux distribution packages is going to get a shot in the arm.
To search in vim is very simple, even a noob vim user know that,
To search for next?
There are many informative and complete reviews of openSUSE 10.2 already published, some with nice screenshots, so I don't see the point in writing yet another. However, for those interested, I have compiled a small report (for lack of a better word) on some of the notable contents of the Changelog and some package version highlights.
Between the deal Novell just made with Microsoft and the countless statements and counter-statements by lawyers and armchair analysts, it's easy to forget that Novell does make a free Linux desktop product. The latest iteration of this is openSuSE 10.2.
When using X, a user is running a graphical application, say an xterm. The xterm is the client; it communicates with an X server, which does the job of displaying it.
Ubuntu Server is like any Linux variety, and has full multi-user capabilities, and a common task on any server is adding users. The useradd command will let you add a new user easily from the command line:

Yogi Berra once said, it's like "deja vu all over again". And that's the feeling I got using the new Linux distribution Ulteo. As I mentioned, Ulteo is a distribution based on the Ubuntu code base. What makes its name stand out a bit more (as opposed to say, Linux Mint) is that it was started by Gael Duval.
The Free Software Foundation announced that it will officially support the Free Ryzom campaign with a pledge of $60 000.

Since beginning as a one-person project over ten years ago, the fourth generation of the K Desktop Environment (KDE) is poised to be the most business-friendly open source desktop to date with a host of new features ideal for enterprises.
I recently read an article on Slashdot mentioning how MySpace users generally have more secure passwords than those in corporate environments. This reminded me of a simple password generator that Ubuntu has to make sure you’re using a password nearly unbreakable.
Good documentation has helped keep the two-year-old Ubuntu project among the most popular Linux distributions. To complement the traditional venues for help, such as FAQs, HOWTOs, bulletin boards, and mailing lists, Ubuntu uses interactive forums such as Internet Relay Chat to conduct training classes for new users. Now add UbuntuClips.org to the list of helpful sites.
