shift+backspace: Fedora 7 was released on May 31, 2007 by Red Hat and the Fedora community. This review will focus on my opinion of Fedora 7 straight “out-of-the-box” and what it can do with minimal intervention.
about.com: This game offers fun and entertainment at various levels. In its simplest form you shoot artillery from your tank at your enemies, trying to blow up as many as you can.
Phoronix: The third test release of Parsix GNU/Linux 0.90 is now available. New in this LiveCD is GNOME 2.18.2, Sun Java replaced by GCJ, added the Parsix Book to the LiveCD, several bug fixes, glibc 2.5, and many other improvements.
FOSSwire: Sometimes, if you’re following a tutorial on doing something on your Linux box and you’re trying to fix something, you’ll be asked to go to a terminal and type in some commands. Often, these commands need to be run as root, the administrator.
We're all familiar with the "big two" desktops for Linux -- KDE and GNOME. Of course, there are many more to choose from. If you asked a group of Linux users, "Which one is best?", the ensuing debate would likely take on religious overtones. Some would even argue that a desktop like KDE is too hard for newbies to use. Still, it's a safe bet that most Linux users don't stray too far away from those "big two," KDE and GNOME. So it's especially interesting to look at some innovative alternatives.
ComputerWorld: New provisions in the latest GPLv3 draft deal more specifically with patents, and how companies distributing software under the proposed GPLv3 can interact with other companies who distribute patented software protected by copyright law. They aim to stop future software patent deals like the one recently made by Microsoft and Novell.
AP via Forbes: Software developer Novell Inc. said Friday it is in compliance with Nasdaq Stock Market rules after filing several delayed financial reports.
NY Times: WHAT a difference 16 years makes. Last month, the technology world was abuzz over an interview in Fortune magazine in which Bradford Smith, Microsoft’s general counsel, accused users and developers of various free software products of patent infringement and demanded royalties. Microsoft sang a very different tune in 1991.
arsgeek: Lots of people have a love/hate relationship with their touch pad on their laptops. It’s great for speeding around your screen and doing lots of cool things with nary a mouse in site. It’s horrible when you accidentaly double-click that Quake 3 icon while your boss is strolling into the room.
effiejayx’s blog: Well most kids would just do anything to sit in front of the TV on a Saturday morning with their cereal in dripping from the bowl. (I know I did back in my time ), well Not my daughter... she just loves sitting and playing with TUXPAINT.
thesourceshow.org: We finally got around to releasing another episode. This time we talk to Bassam Kurdali of the blender project and we have the much anticipated Cinelerra tutorial #3 in which we discuss how to do video effects.
linux insider: Free software gives everyone the freedom to run, study, change and redistribute software. It is these freedoms, not the price, that is important about free software. Free software advocates make the distinction between free, as in speech, as opposed to free, as in beer. Though many people would gladly accept a free beer, it is not one of the fundamental principles of democracy.
ubuntu geek: Enlightenment, commonly referred to as e, is a open source software X window manager primarily for Unix-like computers. Enlightenment focuses on pushing the limits of existing technologies while remaining lightweight, flexible, and beautiful.
enterpriselinuxlog.blogs: Having spent a few days with Fedora 7, I have found that, while still a bit buggy, the updated Xen tools show some real promise. The new version of virt-manager shows the direction that the Fedora team (and consequently Red Hat) is taking with it’s GUI virtualization management tool, and it looks very promising.
debianadmin: This Tutorial will explain how you can import mails from Thunderbird to Evolution. Changing email clients can be a risky task, as you usually want to keep your old email just in case you need to refer back to it.
FOSSwire: In my last post, I noted that the major upgrade to Feisty as of Tribe 1 was The Gimp. Now it’s time to see what has changed in the latest installment, which will be released under the name Gimp 2.4.
bbc: Free. It is not something Western culture does particularly well. It is certainly not something that features big in the plans of the millionaires at Microsoft, Apple and Intel - to name but a few. This week we take a look at the open source operating system Linux and make a few software recommendations.
Red Hat Mag: Since piloting this video series, we’ve received lots of questions about the XO’s mesh network. How can these laptops “talk” to each other even without widespread internet access? How is the network they create different from the network at your home or office? Episode 03 explains it all.
Information Week: After months of debate, the release of the next version of the General Public License, under which most open source products are issued, is imminent. The Free Software Foundation plans to issue GPL version 3 in its final form June 29. As the revised license nears completion, however, new doubts are being raised over whether it's headed in the right direction.
Phoronix: We have previously looked at the NVIDIA 100.14.03 and 100.14.06 display drivers, but this afternoon we finally have our hands on the stable NVIDIA 100.14.09 driver. New in version 100.14.09 is added GeForce 8 and Quadro product support, improved notebook GPU support, improved RenderAccel support for sub-pixel anti-aliased fonts, added Xv brightness and contrast controls, improved interaction with newer kernels, and fixing an issue with nvidia-settings.
