I'm proud to announce the availability of Myah OS 3 Tech Demo 1. This is the first test version for Myah OS generation 3. This is simply a live CD showing off the the base system. Myah OS is no longer based or related to any existing linux system. All packages have been compiled by me from build scripts I have written. Myah is now a i686 system.
As the Free Software Foundation prepares to release the third discussion draft on the GNU General Public License on March 28, the question being asked is whether the move to block future deals like the controversial one between Microsoft and Novell will forever doom the license.
The Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 7600GS card came in the mail today, delivered from Newegg via UPS. And just like I'd threatened earlier, I replaced rhea's 9600 with it. When I pulled out the older video card I re-discovered it wasn't a regular 9600, it was a 9600SE. That's a low-end budget card with a 64-bit memory interface introduced in 2003 that I purchased in 2005 on sale.
Given the growing popularity of SabayonLinux, my continued bad luck with it1, and the fact that my dvdburner died this past weekend, I decided to test the newly released Sabayon Linux 3.3 Mini.
Gael Duval, the creator of Mandrake (now Mandriva) and now fired from its own company, has recently released the Ulteo project.

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the ODF Alliance, an international group of organizations dedicated to promoting Open Document format for XML (ODF) as an international standard for document formats.
It's been over two years now since the Free Software Foundation (FSF) started seriously working on revising that key open-source license, the GPL (Gnu General Public License). On March 28, we're finally going to get... the next draft. How late could the final release of the GPLv3 be?
Mid-2007? At least. Late 2007? Quite likely. 2008? Could be. 2010!? I wouldn't be surprised.
When I learned that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which is a big release for Red Hat I've been looking forward to for some time, was coming out on March 14, one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind was, "Great—when's CentOS 5 coming out?"
You might have read my earlier article about moving to OpenSuSe from Kubuntu. I couldn’t resist the temptation to move back to Kubuntu. I didn’t see anything wrong with OpenSUSE, but I wasn’t comfortable using that compared to (K)Ubuntu, so I downloaded the latest Kubuntu Feisty Fawn beta and burnt it in a CD.
The latest code changes and improvements to Samba 3.0.25 weren't overly dramatic, said the project's release manager, but the subtle changes do push things along toward a scheduled production release in early April.
The changes also push Samba 3 along its path toward making Linux machines behave a bit more like Windows, said Samba release manager Jerry Carter.
Offline logon support
In the Talkback section of this blog, my loyal readers routinely urge me to switch to Linux. “Try it!” they say. “Once you do, you’ll never look back.” I’m perfectly willing to try, and indeed I’d love to have at least one Linux machine on hand so I can test interoperability scenarios here. About eight months ago I tried to install Ubuntu Linux 6.06 on a couple of systems here.
Find your application problems early and spot light on code quality. This article will cover some of the various types of automated developer tests you can run with every source code change.
The Google Code Blog announced the release of four open source coding tools yesterday. The announcement is part of an ongoing Google program of releasing infrastructure tools as open source software.
All of the tools are hosted on the Google Code project and are available for download.
A year ago the Department of Homeland Security contracted with Coverity, a maker of a source code analysis tool, to harden open source software. (Stanford University and Symantec are also involved.) Basically, developers at open source projects (not primarily affiliated with a corporation) can submit their code to scan.coverity.com and have it scanned for security vulnerabilities.
One of the most alarming factors for new e-tailers is the cost of some of the commercial e-store software. While you can pay a few extra dollars for shopping cart software when signing up for a hosting account, these plans don't always offer the functionality or design options that fit your needs. This is where Open Source software comes in to play.
Open Source Software
"Yesterday GameStop opened up their pre-orders for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. This action-packed first person shooter will have a Linux version just like all of the other id Software titles. With that said, GameStop has just received my pre-order of the PC title. Best Buy will begin their ET: Quake Wars pre-order starting April 12.
The Linux Foundation (LF), the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced its new board of directors, a diverse group that represents the key stakeholders from every corner of the Linux ecosystem: the Linux kernel community, Linux vendors, distributions and users, as well as individual open source leaders.
I haven’t been a linux user for very long, in fact i’ve only been using Linux for a few months now and was inspired by Microsofts resource hungry Vista not running on two of my laptops due to lower than recommeded specifications.
The greatest part of our distribution is developed by many individual Open Source developers and we do the integration and packaging of their great software. But there is also a good amount of software developed by SUSE developers as Open Source (under the GPL). One such area is systems management and installation. The following three components have now opened up their internal mailing lists:
