I work in a commercial prepress shop. I use Photoshop, at work, almost every single day. At home, I run Linux. I use the Gimp, personally, as I don't intend to commercially print any of the images I create. Head to head, which of these two programs are "better"?
Suppose you have an email account and a shell account on a Unix server. Furthermore, suppose that you yourself use a laptop and download your mail from the server by POP3 or IMAP, and send it via SMTP using the server as a smarthost. Now imagine that for some reason ( your dynamic IP, or your geographic location ) SMTP access is denied. What can you do?
The new year has brought a new release of the Knoppix live CD. Along with the usual updates to application software, the most noticeable change in version 5.1.1 is the inclusion of the Beryl 3-D desktop with the Emerald theming engine.
A leading user of the Mule project posted a glowing case study on the Mule (leading open source ESB) project a few days ago. Why is "the community" up in arms? Well, it turns out that a few people that don't use Mule are incensed by the fact that it is licensed under the...Mozilla Public License. Well, not quite - they're incensed that Mule is licensed under the MPL plus has an addendum (permitted under the MPL) that requires attribution ("Powered by MuleSource" or something like that).

Talk to anyone who follows hiring trends in IT and they’ll tell you the same thing: having Linux proficiency is growing increasingly important in getting and keeping a job in IT.
I thought of a friend's ex-husband when I learned this week that despite Microsoft's promises of a new openness and its assertions regarding interoperability for its OOXML (formerly known as OpenXML and also known as EOOXML) and despite having offered it as a *standard*, it seems that it's another case of promises, promises. From what I've been reading, which I'll share with you, I think it's time to ask ourselves some serious questions: does OOXML really qualify as a standard? Or is it yet another monopoly-enabler in the guise of a standard?

Today it was a good day for me. I was asked to install Linux on a dual processor (64 bit) machine with SCSI and RAID. It sounds easy and it is easy also, but to install Linux on a machine like this was a dream from beginning.
By its own developers' admissions, Linux supports more hardware devices out-of-the-box than any other operating system but that won't stop a slew of new drivers being added in upcoming releases.

Floss for economic health. That's the conclusion of a newly released European Commission study on the impact of Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (Floss) on the European IT sector.
In this interview with SearchOpenSource.com, Tom Carey, an attorney with Boston-based Bromberg & Sunstein LLP, waxes nostalgic on the SCO trial -- where it was, what lessons it has taught users of Linux and open source software, and what SCO's rumored bankruptcy could mean for the major players.
You think that you know every game that KDE ships? How about KNetWalk? It's a nice little game - not just for system administrators. The chance that you have it already installed is high, it's in the kdegames module!
