I tend to install a lot of stuff on my Ubuntu machines. Much of this I do for curiosity and then report it here. This means that not only do I get to check out lots of interesting stuff, but my machines also start getting cluttered with stale files, old versions and orphaned files.
Now and then you want to number the lines of a file. You can roll your own script to do that:
We received our first machine in the Cambridge today from the plant in Taiwan. This is one of the hand-assembled models running the browser in Sugar. There are some more pictures in the wiki! Even one where I look pretty grumpy.

Nintendo Co. Ltd. and Sony Corp.'s next-generation game consoles are finally ready for play, and bring significant advances to the gaming world. We tested the $599 PS3 that features a 60GB drive and 802.11b/g wireless networking plus Memory Stick, SD Card, and CompactFlash media slots. The Wii (pronounced "we") costs $250 and builds in Wi-Fi (but not ethernet).
There have been speculations and rumors going around since AMD formally announced they would be acquiring ATI Technologies. Of the questions that had appeared were whether AMD would continue with the ATI brand name for its graphics processors and Chipsets. With today's new 8.31.5 fglrx release, the release notes are beginning referring to them as AMD Proprietary Display Drivers. Is this a sign of the elimination of the ATI brand as we know it?
This is one post in a series, describing challenges we need to overcome to make free software ubiquitous on the desktop.
It's been said many times in many forums, blog posts, mailing lists, and comment sections: GNU/Linux won't really go far as a desktop operating system unless it can play the same games that Microsoft Windows can. For years, TransGaming has tried to make the dream of running Windows games in GNU/Linux into reality, and to a small extent it has succeeded with its Cedega, so this review will take a look at the state of Cedega circa version 5.2.7.
Sun's announcement that it would be releasing Java under the GNU GPL confounded many of its critics (including myself) who had feared that the company was incapable of making such a bold move. Quite rightly, it has garnered praise from across the hacker world. But Sun's relationship with free software has not always been so idyllic.
The European Union's top antitrust official, Neelie Kroes, gave Microsoft an ultimatum Wednesday, saying that it had eight more days to comply with an EU antitrust order or face daily fines of up to €3 million.
In previous OOoBasic crash course articles we've created a few simple macros. If you're ready for more advanced stuff, let's create a macro that allows you to save the currently opened document in several formats.

There is an alternative to MS Windows as an operating System for your computer, and it's not a Macintosh. In the last few years, Linux has blossomed into a full fledged Desktop system and is comparable to Windows in every respect except the installed user base.

European businesses are only considering migrating to Linux when they decide to deploy new applications, but most currently have no intention of moving to Windows Vista either, according to a survey released this week.
Microsoft Corp has admitted execution flaws with its promise not to sue open source software developers and invited the wider community to tell the software firm how it can get it right.
Microsoft has long dominated the home desktop Operating System market while Unix and Unix-like systems have dominated the server and datacenter world. Have Microsoft's continuous product delays, removal of highly touted new features, addition of more intrusive DRM and the introduction of a highly restrictive EULA sealed Microsoft's fate?
Funambol, an open source Java-based SyncML application, reached a milestone in September with the release of v3.0. The software provides calendar and address book linkage for groupware and mobile devices. Funambol started out more than three years ago as Sync4j, with a project on SourceForge.net. From humble beginnings, Funambol has today become a company that sells commercial support contracts, but still makes its software available under the GPL.
