Ubuntu 7.10 Upgrade First Impressions

Filed under
Ubuntu

Gutsy is a definite step in the right direction with some welcome new features. It’s just a shame my upgrade didn’t go as smoothly as I wanted. Will I ever get desktop effects working?

Collaboration: Best Reason for Government Open Source?

Filed under
OSS

Linux Today: There seems to be a disconnect between what users want for their computing needs, and what vendors think they want. A glaring example of this was made apparent to me at the Government Open Source Conference (GOSCON) earlier this week.

GPLv3 adoption on track, experts say

Filed under
OSS

linux.com: How is the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) being received four months after its official release? Not well, if you believe the Evans Data survey released on September 25. However, those who concern themselves with licensing issues at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and at Palamida paint a different picture.

Linux Quick Tip: Keyboard Shortcuts in KDE

Filed under
HowTos

Raiden's Realm: For anybody who's ever used a computer, one of the things that many people find useful is keyboard shortcuts. In some cases they can allow you to do certain tasks much faster than you could with a mouse and thus they tend to be preferred by many for that exact reason.

Also: 35+ keyboard shortcuts that save you time in Mozilla Thunderbird

Why don’t more people use Debian?

Filed under
Linux

tuxtoday: Over the last couple of weeks I’ve caught myself wondering why there are so many “easy-to-use” Debian-based distros. I used to think of Debian as the distro that was way up there, a long long way to go, in terms of user-friendlyness. I didn’t think that I was going to be able to use Debian. It just seemed to hard.

Linux Will Be Worth $1 Billion In First 100 Days of 2009

Filed under
Linux

Charles Babcock: What's Linux worth? The question has been a favorite of technology groups and cocktail party conversations ever since a character named Jeff V. Merkey offered $50,000 for a copy of Linux. The offer was a ploy. Merkey wanted it under the BSD license, which would have undermined the terms of the GPL. So he didn't get it. But we know, at least, that $50,000 proved to be a low bid.

Free Games for Linux

Filed under
Gaming

LinuxJournal: When people talk about computer gaming these days, they invariably mean commercial games running on a Windows platform. Few people realize that Linux can be more than just a very good Web or file server. Even fewer people are aware of the many open-source or otherwise freely available games available for Linux.

Fallout from Office Open XML Vote Continues

Filed under
Microsoft

eWeek: The fallout from the events leading up to the recent vote on whether or not to approve Microsoft's Office Open XML documents format as an ISO standard continues unabated, more than a month after the software maker conceded it had lost that vote.

SELinux sparks tussle over Linux security model

Filed under
Linux
Security

GCN: While most security specialists would agree on the high quality of SELinux, proponents are arguing this framework is the only one that should be needed for the open-source operating system kernel. In fact, it would eliminate the need for the Linux Security Module, an open platform for outsider developers to build their own security frameworks for Linux. And this idea has raised the ire of Linux keeper Linus Torvalds.

SuSE 10.3: How the mighty have fallen.

Filed under
SUSE

techiemoe rants: Since around SuSE 10.0, I've not been as happy with SuSE for a number of reasons, most of them aesthetic. There is also that thing about a major corporate Linux still not including something as simple as MP3 support and buying into the Microsoft protection racket.

Baby steps with Gentoo

apaku.wordpress: As I’m pretty familiar with setting up debian nowadays I thought a change would be cool, so I decided to give Gentoo a shot.

Microsoft’s open source shopping spree?

Filed under
Microsoft

blogs.the451group.com: Could Microsoft acquire an open source software vendor? Yes, is the answer, according to Steve Ballmer’s comments from the Web 2.0 Summit. However, I think there’s some reading between the lines to be done here. Microsoft could certainly buy an open source user, but at this stage an open source software vendor might be a step too far.

Also: And now Ballmer is buying all of Web 2.0, too

Battle of the Titans: Mandriva 2008 vs openSUSE 10.3

Filed under
MDV
SUSE
-s

I've followed development of openSUSE and Mandriva fairly closely over the years, albeit a bit closer of openSUSE. I write about how nice they both are. I pick out the new features and test basic functionality. I see what's included and what makes up the base system. I like them both. But a visitor and contributor here at tuxmachines asked which would be better for his laptop and that gave me the idea to compare these large multi-CD Titans of Linux development.

Simple home networking with SSH

Filed under
HowTos

linux.com: The Secure Shell (SSH) network protocol makes it easy to connect computers that are running Linux, share files, and remotely run applications. Along with an X server, it can make sharing a single computer simple on a home network.

Open Source, Firefox and New Search Options Emerge

osweekly: We often take the ability to choose our default Firefox search engine for granted. By default, it's set to Google, and for most people, this is just fine. But what about queries where a typical search engine is not cutting it?
