Would you like to get your hands on "Linux System Administration" and have Bill Lubanovic or me show up to your local LUG or UNIX User group meeting?
If you have two internet providers, and want to balance the load between them, you can use your Linux Box for doing that, you do not need a big machine, an old one can do the job. You can even decide which route to Internet will have more or less load.
I’m sure everyone reading this has heard the debate over whether that top dog free operating system should be called “Linux” or “GNU/Linux”, but how big a contribution is GNU or Linux to that operating system?
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to Spain to meet a focused developer who does not go off at a tangent. Someone with flashes of brilliance you may miss if you Blinken. With plans in abundance, tonight's star of People Behind KDE is KPDF maintainer Albert Astals Cid.
A SHORT INTRO
Billreminder is a simple bill tracking application for Ubuntu. I installed it and started using it. Installation was simple and it’s pretty easy to use. To install Billreminder, Click here and click on download Billreminder. Once downloaded, double click the file and untar the file to a folder (say Billreminder). Open a terminal (Application -> Accessories -> Terminal) and type
Quanta, the company manufacturing the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project's XO laptops, plans to begin selling low-cost budget mobile computers for $200 later this year. According to Quanta president Michael Wang, the company plans to leverage the underlying technologies associated with OLPC's XO laptop to produce laptop computers that are significantly less expensive than conventional laptops.
Yesterday in the forums I created a thread called Hello Catalyst Control Center Linux Edition! with the AMD 8.35.5 Linux drivers, but will Hello AIGLX! be the next big announcement?
In my four years of using Linux, getting usb drives, memory cards, cd-roms, and Windows shares in a state where I could actually use them has been one of my most frustrating problems. Printing, by comparison, has been far easier. I was frustrated even that I had to use the "mount" command, not to mention all the issues with getting it to work the way I wanted it to.
Revenue continued its steady increase for Linux seller Red Hat's most recent quarter, but net income dropped 25 percent.
Fedora 7 Test 3 was released today. This release included for the first time a Fedora live CD featuring KDE.
Have you ever wondered which Linux distro is the most popular? Many people will point to the statistics at DistroWatch.com. These statistics are generated by the number of "hits" for each distro page at DistroWatch. Unfortunately, this allows the possibility of "ballot-stuffing" by making multiple visits to distro page that you like.
While users are pleading with Dell to sell systems with Linux pre-installed, smaller vendors have been offering Linux on OEM hardware for some time. One of the more recent arrivals in the OEM Linux market is System 76, which sells a decent selection of desktop, workstation, and notebook systems with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.
Dell said that they'll soon start offering Linux on desktop and notebook systems. My recent experience with Linux on Dell notebooks has been interesting.
I had an older Dell laptop laying around for more than year. It had a failed power charging board in it (the board that handles both AC and DC power), which failed in one of those classic "I shouldn't have done that" moments...
Maybe it's just me, but I believe Ubuntu and Canonical have a severe case of the Not Invented Here. Instead of building on one of the three most suitable distributions at the time (each with advantages, disadvantages and often trade-offs): Debian, and Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrake Linux) and MEPIS, they have forked Debian, and created an improved but incompatible version.
Mandriva, the France-based Linux distributor, will have a version of its Mandriva Linux 2007 pre-installed on Intel's new low-end laptop for students, the Classmate PC.
According to Intel, the ClassMatePC is a rugged laptop with a water-resistant keyboard and a theft-control feature based on a network-issued digital certificate. Its processor is an Intel Mobile 900MHz Celeron ULV chip.
The recently released DragonFly BSD 1.8.1-REL incited me top give it a very quick try. I always loved their logo and I was curios about how can act an OS forked from FreeBSD 4.8 — see Wikipedia for a short history of the DragonFly.
This short guide describes how you can configure your GNOME desktop so that you can open files and directories with a single mouseclick instead of a double click. This is helpful if you switch from Windows to Linux and used to open files and directories with a single click on your Windows desktop, too.
PengYou is a promising Java-based client/server document management solution and versioning tool for individual users and small workgroups of up to 10 users. In its current version -- a very early stage of development -- PengYou offers only bare-bones functionality, but the developers have all the basics right.
I love Mozilla and Google products, and I use them every single day; however, the ongoing discussions about how they should create more of a presence in the operating system world has baffled me.
