Here is a brief summary of the most recent meeting of the KDE Games project. The meeting happened last Thurday, February 1st, 2007, and approximately 20 people were in the #kdegames channel.
Podcatchers, the programs that download and aggregate your favorite podcasts, are popular on all platforms. Many are available for Linux, including iPodder and Podget. But the truth is that you don't need all that fancy stuff to harvest podcasts with Linux. BashPodder is a quick CLI-based GPLed podcatching client. It's one of the oldest ones out there, and may still be the best. It's hands-on, no-frills -- and a perfect example of how a few command-line statements can work together to do a powerful job.
Competing with Linux once filled Microsoft partners with dread, but now many are taking on the open source operating system with growing self-confidence -- and success. Here are the tactics for winning the fight.
The penguin’s come of age. What began as a battle between proprietary and open source Linux software, started by geeks around the world, isn’t plain tech rhetoric anymore. It’s now a mainstream commercial platform — a technology that enterprises are taking very seriously and looking at as a major cost-effective solution that has scalability and a great future roadmap.
Bruce Perens, an author of the Open Source Definition that codified elements of the collaborative programming philosophy, is set to bring the approach to hardware designs.
The British news agency Reuters came up with a sensational bit of spin on Friday, US time, claiming that the Free Software Foundation could "ban" Novell from selling Linux. Good headline, but very weak on facts. Here's a FAQ that I've written for Jim Finkle, the intrepid Reuters reporter who filed that story:
Typically I stream all my music online, but after getting the Violent Femmes CD "Viva Wisconsin", I went looking for something to play it with that did better than xmms.
Prior to my Vacation, I asked what folks wanted to see as the next AWW review. Responses were all over the board, but many asked for a review of Gentoo. This is going to be painful, right?
I don't believe in Fedora as a stable, production-grade distro, as it changes radically twice a year (with each release), always bringing something new, but also always breaking something. Relying on Fedora would mean to say, twice a year: "here's a good release; here's a bad release; here's a good release; here's a bad release...".
After you first install Ubuntu and login using your username and passowrd your screen will look like this. Some of us might like this look , some of us might not. You might like it or you might not. If you’re happy with it, than don’t change it !!!
The commands diff and patch form a powerful combination. They are widely used to get differences between original files and updated files in such a way that other people who only have the original files can turn them into the updated files with just a single patch file that contains only the differences. This tutorial explains the basics of how to use these great commands.
For quite some time now, we have been getting sporadic reports of mysterious login problems, mostly with Internet Explorer but sometimes with other browsers on other OSes.
Help by answering the following:
- What specific browser and OS has the problem? (including Major / Minor version)
- Does another browser on the same OS have the same problem?
I installed the new version of openSuse without any problems. On first boot it displayed only on one of the screens, giving a dark off-centre shadow on the other screen - oh fudge I thought.
This method of installation and configuration works for me, using a combination of apt and building from source. You must have a working apache or apache2 installation and understand the concepts involved with restarting the server, enabling modules and the location and format of configuration files, e.g., httpd.conf or apache2.conf.
we discussed default package contents and what settings to look into for customization for fedora 7. looks like f7 stands a good chance of having really nice kde packages thanks both to the fedora community expanding their embrace of the community in general (merging core and extras is a nice move, too) and rex and other kde fans putting in the time and effort.

Inland Revenue has eschewed Microsoft Vista and will instead upgrade to Windows XP, while continuing to evaluate the merits of a switch to open source rival Linux.
Remember all those articles around the web that claim "This year might be the year for the Linux desktop" ? Honestly, should we really care? Shouldn't we let the user decide from themselves? Aren't they the final decider in all this?
