OpenSuse 10.2 Review

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

I looked at OpenSuse 10.2 as a Win2k replacement. I’ve been impressed with Suse over the years so I was looking forward to see what Novell brought to the table with 10.2. I am not going to judge a distribution on its setup process (OS installation, mp3 setup, flash setup, adding printer, etc), however I am going to mention some installation pitfalls I ran into during the 10.2 install.

Ubuntu founder doesn't "get" enterprise Linux

Filed under
Ubuntu

OK, that's not really true. Mark is a sharp guy, and gets open source as well, indeed, better, than most. But he's completely wrong on his criticism of Red Hat (which Greg of the Fedora Project shoots down). His basic point? Because RHEL is a closed binary, it's proprietary.

Dan Bricklin Wants to Pick Your Brain re Novell-Microsoft Meeting

Filed under
SUSE

Dan Bricklin is hosting a meeting on Monday from 9AM to noon sponsored by the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council on the Novell-Microsoft deal. I know. Blech. But both Microsoft and Novell are sending representatives to speak, and what Dan is asking for is this: what should he ask them?

SUSE

openSUSE is a widely known distribution for its huge array of unique tools for managing virtually every part of the system, without having to even think about using the console.

A picture heavy look at PCLinuxOS 2007 Beta2

PCLOS

As I covered yesterday, PCLinuxOS 2007 Beta2 has been released to the public and I've had a chance to play with it and I think it's fair to make the conclusion that this is a distro worth keeping an eye on.

The (computer) World is a Circle

Filed under
Linux

It is a given these days that Linux is making real inroads into the corporate glass house. We (BMC) certainly have a large number of our product lines ported to it, and therefore a wide swath of systems in the R&D data center to support those development efforts. I originally started this weblog last year (and 99 posts ago) to talk about those systems and how we use, maintain, and generally support Linux here. I called this “Adventures in Linux” to be sure I can digress from time to time. Linux is a big subject.

Planning the 2007 Linux Kernel Summit

Filed under
Linux

Theodore Ts'o announced that the 2007 Linux Kernel Summit will be moved from its usual location in Ottawa, Canada, taking place this year in Cambridge, England. Ted described the move as a one-time experiment to be re-evaluated at a future date to see if it's worth moving the Kernel Summit to other locations in the future.

BlueFish & NVU vs Dreamweaver: A Linux Web-Publishing review-comparison

Filed under
Software

Recently I was expressing the need for Dreamweaver in Linux, because my company website was built on Dreamweaver. Someone said that I should try NVU. And when I specified that I wanted a heavy-duty web-development package, he suggested Bluefish. I of course hadn’t heard of these packages, and eventually gave them a try.

Also: ksnapshot vs gnome-screenshot: no comparison!

Filed under
Ubuntu

My Ubuntu experience was with the recent Edgy Eft release, all I can say is it's just not ready for any kind of serious application. Fellow ITToolbox blogger, Locutus, suggested I try Kubuntu. I have to say, I was shocked at the difference between Kubuntu and Ubuntu. Everything that Ubuntu failed to do right, Kubuntu delivers on.

Review: Linux Mint 18 (Sarah)

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
