The free software model of software development is about rapid detection of problems, rapid repair of those problems, and the rapid acceptance and advance of entirely new ideas. These conditions depend upon the collaboration of users and developers from a wide variety of backgrounds. The original community of Linux developers was self-selecting. For the most part they were young 'hobbyists' with a broad interest in software who wanted something more adventurous.
In this article I'll show how to export and print outlines, customize outline heading line colors, and use outline mode's special features in everyday documents -- such as numbered lists, traditional outlines with Roman numerals, and even book manuscripts containing chapter and section headings.
Let's face it. Google pretty much owns the Internet landscape. This also opens them up to other online opportunities should they decide to pursue them. One such opportunity is believed to be the much famed idea of a Google OS. The Google OS is already alive and well.
Firefox, the fun open-source browser that some ten percent of the web uses, has a secret. Firefox's secret is the same as Jessica Simpson's: its effortless, glamorous style is the result of — shhh — extensions! Today let's take a look at how one goes about creating these magical extensions.
Does the world need another browser, even when Microsoft's grip on the sector has weakened? Yes, says Flock. We are aiming this browser at the folks for whom engaging socially online is the most important thing they do.

Microsoft's recent announcement that the long-anticipated new version of its Windows operating system, Vista, has been delayed into January 2007 leaves several questions hanging. But if the confusion over Windows is deepening, the opposite is true of Linux.
Win4Lin has released another version of its Win4Lin Pro Windows compatibility program for Linux desktops, which promises improved speed, better networking performance, and sound playback and recording for Windows 2000 and Windows XP guest operating systems. Win4Lin Pro has come a long way since the last review.
I often write that the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser does thus and such, or doesn't do this or that other thing. In truth, there are other handy but hard-to-discover ways of configuring Firefox to behave according to your wishes.
"Once upon a time, in a land not too far away, and not as distant as you might think in time, as well, there was a little penguin. And, that penguin went to the woods wearing his little red riding hood to see his grandmother in Antarctica..."
The One Laptop Per Child, or OLPC, plan is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the history of the IT industry, according to Tony Roberts, chief executive and founder of U.K. charity Computer Aid International.
Debian Projekt Leader Anthony Towns and his deputy Steve McIntyre give answers about the Debian project, the tasks of the Project Leader and future directions. The questions have been selected by Pro-Linux from the proposed questions of the readership.
Harken back with me, faithful reader, to the days of yore. Yea and verily, I speak of the days of video arcades, when a quarter of a dollar would buy you frantic minutes whereupon you, as humanity's only hope, were called upon to protect the earth from invading, marauding, aliens. In the spirit of those great arcade games comes SolarWolf, a superb arcarde game inspired by the old Atari game, SolarFox.
Coming out of Norway this morning is the long awaited Opera 9, after previous Beta/preview releases. Opera 9 is focused on being efficient, productive, secure, stylish, and innovative.

The Gentoo Store has updated its selection of clothing and schwag. The main addition is the new line-up of women's clothing sporting the Gentoo logo.

Also, some new stickers and other items have been added to the Schwag section of the store, including a nice Gentoo wall clock. Updated CD media will be available after 2006.1 is released.

If you are a Windows user who interacts with Linux on a regular or occasional basis, you will eventually feel disenfranchised. For those brave souls who migrate away from Windows and into the Linux realm there will always be a void left where Windows functionality is unmatched on the Linux platform, or where Linux lacks a suitable replacement. Win4Lin provides a happy middle ground.
