The Ubuntu team yesterday announced the beta release of Ubuntu 7.04.
In an email release the team said: "Ubuntu 7.04 is the most user-friendly Ubuntu to date and includes a ground-breaking Windows migration assistant, excellent wireless networking support and improved multimedia support."
Here is my little pet peeve about Firefox tabs - with the the default theme it is sometimes hard to see which tab is currently active at a glance. The difference between normal and boldface tab title is just not that pronounced. It just doesn’t jump at you, which is in my opinion what it should be doing. I want to be able to instantly tell “where I’m at” without thinking.
While going through my usual Australian tech forums, I found this shockingly refreshing solution!
LinuxMCE is a free, open source add-on to Ubuntu including a 10' UI, complete whole-house media solution with pvr + distributed media, and the most advanced smarthome solution available. It is stable, easy to use, and requires no knowledge of Linux and only basic computer skills.
The third alpha of Firefox 3 is available now and while it’s still mainly oriented to get testers around the lot of work that is going on Gecko, Firefox’s web page rendering engine, we can find much more interesting features here.
A coupla of blogs/sites I keep an eye on have pointed to this recent mailing list posting where developers have stated the possibility of Beryl and Compiz merging in the future if both projects want to cooperate.
Rosegarden combines a track-oriented audio/MIDI sequencer with a standard music notation editor to provide a feature-rich "all-in-one" solution for Linux music-makers.
There are different ways of sharing files between GNU/Linux and Windows. Mostly we make use of the services of a FAT32 (or FAT16) partition which can be read and written to by both Linux and Windows. The disadvantage of using a FAT partition for sharing files between Windows and GNU/Linux is that you are forced to reserve a part of disk space solely for sharing files.
There is a fair to middlin' chance that GPL v3 will be announced this weekend at the Free Software Foundation's annual associate member and activist meeting in Cambridge, MA.
Yesterday evening, a friend of mine asked me if I know how to install ColdFusion 5.0 on a up-to-date openSuse system. After some fiddling around, I indeed found a way to get it running, but let's start from the beginning:
The main problem is: it simply won't run out of the box because of the following facts:
-openSuse comes with a 2.2.x Apache
I currently use Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft as my primary desktop. As much as I like Ubuntu, it is not without it's faults. Feisty Fawn is the upcoming 2007 release of Ubuntu, and I have high hopes for it and Desktop Linux in general this year. I have even converted one of my dorm mates to Ubuntu when he was impressed with the speed of Linux.
I felt it was time to give my favourite distro (PCLOS) a more thorough review in the light of my decision to change how I review distros. I felt that something as promising as PCLOS 2007 beta 2 deserved the first slot.
The biggest video problem open source developers need to solve isn't with video editing software, but with Internet video delivery, which is currently dominated by Adobe Flash. There are several good reasons why Flash is the most popular method of putting video on the Internet, but Macromedia (since purchased by Adobe) made a horrible decision when it released Flash 8.
Managing processes is quite straightforward with tools like kill and nice, but what happens when you want to provide even finer management control over your processes?
Under the headline "Surprise, Microsoft Listed as Most Secure OS," Internetnews.com's Andy Patrizio writes, "Microsoft is frequently dinged for having insecure products, with security holes and vulnerabilities.
The Desktop Operating System Wars are over and Microsoft won. Microsoft's Windows, in its various forms, is the most popular computer operating system in the world. It ships on over 70% of all new PCs and is projected to remain the number one OS, though in ever declining numbers, through about 2011.
I'm used to doing everything manually when running wireless FreeBSD on older laptops. Running Ubuntu has shielded me from some of the command-line configuration I used to perform on FreeBSD. Linux uses different commands for certain tasks. My new laptop also has a different chipset from my old laptop, so I wanted to see if I could get Kismet working on it.
After many delays, a false start and much effort, the new Mozilla Add-ons site (code name Remora) has gone live and ready to serve Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird and SeaMonkey users.
For the past couple of years, Microsoft has been fixated on beating IBM Lotus Notes/Domino in the e-mail server market. But according to a Yankee Group report that will be published next month, the real threat to Microsoft Exchange isn't IBM — it's Linux- and open-source-based e-mail servers.
