Well, the hits just keep on coming with the Beta 3 release of OpenSUSE's SUSE Linux 10.0. As with Mandriva's 2006 Beta 3, most of the changes are under the hood. The Changelog is quite extensive and it looks like the OpenSUSE developers have been very very busy.
Since the beginning of the software industry, nearly every software company in the world has followed the same business model. Today, however, that model is being challenged by a new paradigm: open source.
Web sites in China are being used as a staging ground for attacks on computer networks in the U.S. Defense Department and other agencies.
"The bottom line is this: Microsoft has constantly created studies showing Windows cheaper to use than Linux. The problem here is that it is possible to skew a study to a known end by manipulating the variables so some factors are downplayed, while others are increased."
Intel is currently working with software developers to design middleware application software for the Linux operating system (OS) for its Viiv consumer PC platform to reduce the cost.
The full specs for the upcoming Cell processor have been released. The four companies developing the new chip finally provided all the details, following hints in February and sneak glimpses earlier this month.
Some readers seem to expect journalists to hide the dirty laundry of poorly designed software and badly supported hardware. No professional reviewer owes the free software/open source/Linux/BSD/GNU/whatever community a softball review for the sake of advocacy.
Already at the forefront of issuing authorized "live bootlegs" of its shows, Pearl Jam will on September 1 launch its own digital download store via its official Web site.
Thousands of cameras and sensors will be installed at platforms and subway stations as part of a sophisticated electronic surveillance and threat detection infrastructure, while mobile phone coverage will be extended underground across the public transport network to aid communications in any emergency situation.
A major reorganization is in the works for China's open-source software industry, with discussions under way over how local Linux vendors and industry organizations can cooperate more closely -- including the possibility of a merger between several of the country's top Linux companies.
We now know how to pronounce it! Intel officially launched its new Viiv brand today at the Intel Developer Forum. As we noted earlier, it's targeted at the living room PC, and is geared towards making the PC work like any other piece of consumer electronics. From Intel's press release:
Just weeks after the US supreme court ruled against filesharing network Grokster, legal experts and industry insiders say the verdict is having a chilling effect on US technological innovation.
I spoke with a number of people who asked if I knew of any VP of Marketing types to join their open source company. The truth is I came up pretty much blank. Word on the street is that no less then six open source related companies are looking to fill that role.
Playboy magazine, losing money in the face of depressed advertising, will go digital later this year in hopes of winning new subscribers and advertisers.
The "Star Wars" company will use Hewlett-Packard software for film and video game effects. LucasFilm also did effects for the "Harry Potter" and "Jurassic Park" series, as well as the recent "War of the Worlds."
How much is this going to cost me? The question may be the lifeblood of business, but the answer is all too often an alchemy of knowns and unknowns, hard figures, and soft projections. Occupying the gap is a cottage industry of studies, surveys, analysts, and pundits weighing in on the big, bad, broad comparison of total cost of ownership (TCO) between commercial and open source software.
Previously ECS ELITEGROUP was known for economy class offerings, but there has been some success of late with a few different platforms in the enthusiast market by ECS, but associated with low cost "bang for the buck" type systems. When the nForce4 Ultra based KN1 Extreme arrived at my doorstep and I indulged in it's build and feature set, I must say I was quite impressed.
No other segment of the computer component manufacturing industry has seen such a dramatic level of price gouging as the graphics cards business. Street prices for Nvidia's 6-series and ATI's X800 neared the unprecedented $1000 mark. This time Nvidia launched the GeForce 7 in volume, bringing graphics card pricing back to a more reasonable level.
