During last weekend's Southern California Linux Expo 5x, Sam Leffler of the FreeBSD Project and FreeBSD Foundation and "old school" hacker from the UC Berkeley Computer Systems Research Group (where the original Berkeley Software Distribution was developed) took some time to explain to me what the Foundation actually does, and the kind of work it has fostered. We also chatted briefly about the current status of FreeBSD, and the degree to which Apple contributes to the Project.
SoundJuicer is the CD ripper of choice for Ubuntu, but it doesn't rip directly to MP3, nor does it give you the option to do so. To create that option...
Sizing the Linux market ecosystem is no easy task. Downloads of Linux operating systems and applications are not an accurate measure. Analyst firm IDC, however, has a handle on the market and its size, and it's large.

As is reminiscent of many of the books written by authors for Packt Publishing, the first chapter begins with descriptions and re-introductions to many of the basic networking concepts. These include the OSI model, subnetting, supernetting, and a brief overview of the routing protocols. Chapter 2 discusses the need for network security and how it applies to each of the layers of the OSI model.
If you’ve used the command line in Linux at all, you’ve probably heard about links. Symbolic links, soft links, hard links, links, links, links. What the heck are these things anyway?
Quanta Computer, the world's largest contract laptop PC manufacturer, already has confirmed orders for one million notebook PCs for the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, a company representative said Thursday.
Colonizing a new world is not a trivial task, even when you're doing it in a clone of a famous game. FreeCol is a free-as-in-free-software Java-based clone of Sid Meier's Colonization that's currently at the 0.5.3 release.
Zero Install is one of the more promising alternatives to native package systems for Linux distributions, such as RPM and Debian's dpkg. It begins with a criticism of existing package systems the difficulties of using them, and is built to provide an answer to the problems raised by the critique.
Microsoft and Novell have been making a big deal of their big deal to work together to soothe customers' cross-platform pain points. But it remains to be seen whether and how far the deal will end up extending beyond the realm of press releases and presentation slide decks.
In an effort to decrease IT costs and provide centralised management, EBS Building Society in Ireland has deployed Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) within the company's mainframe environment to host IBM's WebSphere applications. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server will support more than 1,000 users within EBS in 2007.

My working day includes a variety of tasks, and most of them take place on the command line, because that approach enables me to do things in the most efficient way. But you can also waste a lot of time on the command line if you don't know what utilities will give you what you need quickly. Here's an introduction to the most important tools I use every day.

The idea of Rhapsody offering a Linux music service is fantastic, except for the fact that they have opted not to allow the full functionality offered to those in the Windows world. It really is a let down for Linux users, but is this something that we can blame Rhapsody for?
