infomatics: Linux creator Linus Torvalds remains sceptical about the upcoming third version of the general public licence (GPLv3). "I still think GPLv2 is simply the better licence," Torvalds wrote in a posting to the Linux Kernel Developer mailing list on Sunday.
itmanagement: Over the past few weeks much has been written about Dell’s decision to offer desktop and notebook PCs that have the Ubuntu Linux distro installed on them as opposed to Windows. But despite the fact that this is a huge step towards making a Linux distro mainstream, I firmly believe this move won’t have any significant positive effect on the Linux market share.
As you might have noticed on Centos 5.0, there is no PHP-MSSQL module/extension available in the default yum repositories. So if you want to use it you can alter the PHP binary or you can compile an mssql module/extension. In this article I will explain how to compile the mssql module/extension.

kernelTRAP: The translation of a some kernel documentation into Japanese led to a discussion as to whether or not it was appropriate to include translated documentation with the kernel source code. One concern that was expressed was that as the number of included translations grows, so would the size of the kernel.
computerworld: Mark Shuttleworth made news in 2002 when he fulfilled a lifelong ambition and became the first South African to travel into space, paying $20 million to be a civilian cosmonaut on an eight-day flight aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. In 2004, he founded Ubuntu Linux to bring the operating system to people around the world.
linux.com: Nixstaller 0.2.2 is a command-line tool for creating graphical installers for archived files on Unix-like systems. If that sounds paradoxical, it is. Although Nixstaller is easy enough to learn that you can produce your first installer within half an hour of installing it, much of the process is sufficiently painstaking that it cries out for the automation usually associated with a graphical interface
ITtoolbox Blogs: There are literally hundreds of Linux distributions floating around the net. Any of which is almost the same but not quite like tea. Sorry bit of Hitch Hikers Guide snuck in there. Seriously, there are so many different distributions and they are all very similar to each other with superficial differences to separate one from the other.
About.com: One of the three Ubuntu systems Dell started to sell a few weeks ago is a notebook computer, the Inspiron E1505N. Since I was in need of a new notebook computer I decided to order one.
I' Been to Ubuntu: If you look at the Ubuntu menu, you'll notice that programs are called applications. Given that hint, you can probably guess that an applet is just a very small application. Panel applets are small, single-purpose programs which sit in your panel.
Free Software Magazine: So, you’ve made the move to free software. As you’ve no doubt noticed, there are quite a few differences between the proprietary software you’ve been used to and free software: the interfaces are different; it costs a heck of a lot less; and if you’re using one of the community supported distributions there’s no premium rate helpline! These all seem like benefits to me, but what happens when you have a problem?
AP via KGO-TV: As a murder trial gets under way Monday in the disappearance of Nina Reiser, a 31-year-old mother of two missing since September, defense lawyers are trying to sow doubt about whether she is dead at all.
/home/liquidat: Alberto Milone posted a blog entry about a small RandR 1.2 program he wrote for Gtk. Also, Ubuntu started writing a Gtk frontend for the display management of Guidance.
computerworld: Red Hat Linux is now widely deployed on the servers in my data center. Users have no idea what operating system underlies our Web applications and databases, nor do they care, as long as those tools are highly available. But the desktop is uncharted territory.
linux.sys-con.com: Seemingly out of left field, Google has bought PeakStream, the two-year-old start-up whose young tools make it easier to program multi-core processors by kinda doing the parallelizing for you if you write to its APIs. Then you can run the program on a variety of chips.
Pupeno’s web site: As we put more and more personal information on our computers or computers become lighter, small, more mobile. In other words, the importance of the information gets higher and the possibility of being loosed or stolen gets higher as well.
iTWire: Incredibly, a patent cross-licensing deal was signed without once discussing patents. Now how could anyone imagine that people would talk about patents when they were signing such a deal? Silly me!
the Distrogue: By now, you should certainly know that Dell's offering computers with Ubuntu installed. After just getting one, here are some points about the entry-level Inspiron E1505N laptop:
Linux on Desktop: Ubuntu Linux is one of the most popular Linux distribution , it is especially popular among Linux newbies and windows refuges . Now Ubuntu Linux does come with a descent set of applications , still there is a scope for including some more quality applications and especially games . Now in this tutorial i will show you how to install a large number of small , easy and less resource hungry games on Ubuntu Linux with screen-shots of games .
503 Service Unavailable: Version control systems, sometimes called revision control systems or source code management systems, are programs whose purpose is to let you track changes made to a set of, usually, plain text files. There’s usually a repository, a place in which your changes are recorded. The two most famous centralized version control systems are CVS and Subversion.
