The next stable update to the Linux kernel, Version 2.6.21, is slated to include a new feature submitted by VMware called VMI.
Virtualized operating system instances can enjoy performance and management benefits if their kernels are modified to communicate with the hypervisor under which they run. This arrangement is called paravirtualization.
Linux is by far *not* the first open source "project" I have been around. As a newly minted system programmer 27 or so years ago (geez, I'm old... When did that happen?) I was first involved with a new operating system from IBM called VM/SP. VM/SP was the post anti-trust version of VM IBM created out of VM/370.
There’s quite a bit of speculation going on at what distribution of Linux Dell will choose to put onto its desktops or if they’ll even attempt to put Linux on the desktop.
It’s really simple to login with your username/password combination on the remote machine, but sometimes it can be a better idea to use key-based authentication.
Key-based authentication is where instead of authenticating that you are you with the remote machine credentials, you use a cryptographic key pair.
By default when you click the Open All in Tabs option in a bookmarks folder or a live bookmark, the bookmarks are opened in different tabs replacing the current tab set you have at that time.
ps is a very useful tool to list all current running processes with various info such as CPU usage, memory usage, process status, process id etc.
watch is another good tool to continuously execute some programs in infinite loop. watch allows you to make use of commands such as ps, netstat, lsof into monitoring purpose.

Does Steve Ballmer speak for Microsoft on open source? He's the CEO, and he seems to think that open source does not exist, has no right to exist, and can be ground down with lawyers.
Or how about Brad Abrams? Is it Jason Matusow? Should we look to the Microsoft legal team, its executive ranks, or what about the geek standing in front of you on the trade show stand?
Last time, we talked about installing Sugar so that you could emulate the OLPC environment on your system. Now it’s time to explore how activities work on the XO.
Finding your activities
Novell is developing an open source implementation of Microsoft’s identity card technology that is functionally equivalent to the Windows software but will run on both Linux and Macintosh.
Oh, my. On the one hand, Mary Jo is reporting that, just as Novell's Bruce Lowry had said, Novell's pact with Microsoft seems to be earning it back market share against Red Hat.http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/14679/edit
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Red Hat should be flattered. Less than two weeks after the company introduced RHEL 5 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5), StartCom Ltd. released the first RHEL 5 clone, StartCom Enterprise Linux AS-5.0.0.
Earlier this month, Slashdot posted a piece asking whether the Gentoo project is in "crisis." The project has responded to the issues discussed in the posting, in part, by adopting a Code of Conduct (CoC), with "proctors" who will address breaches of the CoC. So far, that move seems of limited worth.
The open source Emacs editor (one of the powerhouses of UNIX computing) is a large, complex application that does everything from editing text to functioning as a complete development environment.
n my previous post I explained how I set up my new server as a Xen server in order to maximize my flexibility. It's been little over a week now and I am saddened to say that Xen has gone out the Window. While I love the flexibility, it's just not ready for me yet.
Snag 1: Running NFS
Chris Guirl sent me a note this weekend alerting me to the release of VDrift 2007-03-23 and letting me know that this drift racing game now supports benchmarking.
Even though interest in server-side Linux has been steadily growing in enterprises and organizations around the world, desktop and laptop-based Linux solutions have faced a steady series of uphill climbs.
Lately, I have watched various companies make marketing blunders on a near everyday basis. Some in the general media, others in niche arenas, where most people will never see just how huge of a mistake was actually made. But all of them aside, Novell has had the pleasure of topping them all and solidifying fears that many Linux users share, with one single statement.
There’s a discussion going on on my LUG mailing list today which seems to have diverged from its original topic to the question of the inclusion of officially supported non-free repositories in distributions: is this merely facilitating freedom or does it have more sinister implications for free software?
