The unification of the Free Standards Group and the Open Source Development Labs into the all-new shiny Linux Foundation has drawn a lot of attention this week. But while a lot of people are interested in the motivation behind the merger, I am wondering what the outcomes of this move might be.
Fun is a pervasive feature of software development, not only for open source programmers but in the area of commercial software development too: Open source developers that are paid for their work are observed to be very motivated and prepared for future effort, especially if they enjoy their development time.
These screenshots are took from the GNUstep 1.0 LiveCD, released on Nov. 6, 2006. No matter how nostalgic might I be, the GNUstep 1.0 desktop looks exactly like a Linux desktop back in 1994.
The last piece of the openSUSE 10.2 distribution got released today. It contains a base desktop system (KDE and Gnome) with applications for office, multimedia and internet usage.
Novell received an additional notice of non-compliance from the staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market, pursuant to NASDAQ marketplace rule 4310(c)(14), due to the delay in filing its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2006.
We’re going to take a look at the basics of Perl, which is a popular choice for writing basic CGI scripts – programs that interact with a web server to provide more dynamic web pages.
As an educator, I am interested in course management systems (CMS) applications for courses, curriculums, and institutions. Well-known proprietary CMS applications such as WebCT and Blackboard are too expensive for the schools and companies I work with. After testing and playing with several open source CMS applications, my favorite is Moodle.
Knopper is known as the man who can put a system to life without even touching its hard drive. And what makes his efforts notable is the fact that he is a one-man army. He has an infectious sense of humour which I noticed when I met him last year during Asia's biggest Linux event, LinuxAsia 2006.
Need to test-run a new software app without affecting your main computer? Software developer Kulvir Singh Bhogal introduces you to VMware Player, a program that allows you to run virtual machine images on a host PC, effectively allowing you to run multiple operating systems on the same PC simultaneously.
The long-awaited next version of the Debian open-source operating system is most likely to be released in February, according to members of the Debian community.
Last year the Italian FreeBSD user group, GUFI, rekindled the FreeSBIE project to develop a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system. After more than four months of development, and an equal number of beta releases, the project released FreesBIE 2.0 this month. Codenamed Clint Eastwood, the live CD is based on the recent FreeBSD 6.2 release, and is an ideal platform to experience BSD and learn how things are done in BSD land.
A coalition of rivals charged on Friday that Microsoft Corp.'s new Vista operating system coming out next week will perpetuate practices found illegal in the European Union nearly three years ago.

Kurumin Linux is a distribution we had never heard of prior to today's encounter. The latest Kurumin release, Light 7.0, is a mini LiveCD that is targeted for Brazilian users and is based on Debian/Knoppix.
PC-BSD 1.3 was released on New Year's Eve. Dru Lavigne interviewed three members of the PC-BSD release engineering team regarding the new release and their involvement within the PC-BSD community.
When it comes to bandwidth eaters, there's one kid on the block that will have you biting off more than you can chew. Its fun. Its addictive. Its open source. Its Democracy TV.
I recently set up Xen 3.0.3 on Debian etch using the great guide here from this site. However, if (like me) you use the binary Nvidia X.org driver rebooting into your new XenLinux kernel your X.org server will fail to start. If you read its error output, you will see that this is because it cannot find the nvidia kernel module. Here we'll show how to fix things.
One way to know that the open source market is maturing is to analyze how fast companies are able to get to significant revenues. By "significant" I mean $10M and on a sharp, upward ramp. When I started in the business of open source (2000, with Lineo), it was horribly difficult to pull in $1M in revenues, much less $10M. Now? The ink will still be dry on your VC term sheets when you cross that threshold. Really.
It's called "The Ultimate Weblog System," and if you can shear off some of the hyperbole in that you'll find that the quick-to-install Geeklog does provide what it claims: a Web portal with all the trimmings, and all of it working right "out of the box."
gSTM, the Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager, is a front-end for managing SSH-tunneled port redirects. It stores tunnel configurations in a simple XML format. The tunnels, with local and remote port redirections, can be created, deleted, modified, and individually started and stopped through one simple interface. It is useful for anyone wanting to securely access private services over an encrypted tunnel.
