It's important not to get too carried away with "the latest tech trend." Technology changes more rapidly than any other sector, and this year's "must have" technology is quickly made obsolete, or so it seems. However, every so often something significant comes along that truly changes the game. Mainframes yielded to client/server, which in turn was replaced by the Web as the dominant computing paradigm. I believe Linux and Open Source more broadly represent a similar game-changing force.
Operating systems for Christians? Sound silly? It may sound silly but it's true. Recently, two versions of Linux have come out geared towards the Christian faith. One is called Ubuntu Christian Edition and the other is Ichthux.
Firefox 2.0 is almost here, and Microsoft is expected to start pushing out Internet Explorer 7 to users via the Windows Automatic Update software-distribution mechanism by year's end. In short, the browser wars are about to begin again.
It's Friday the 13th, and for some of us in the Western world it's a day where we walk a little more carefully. I enjoy delving into mysteries of the universe around us. The most prominent example of this is the GPL 2 vs. 3 debate, which seems to have some people convinced that it's the End of Linux kernel as We Know It.
Parsing is one of the CDT's most crucial functions, but because of its complexity, parsing is also one of its least-understood aspects. This article introduces the parsing process used by the Eclipse C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT). This will help you Get a handle on one of the C/C++ Development Tooling's most crucial functions: the parsing process -- for error detection, indexing, and code-completion
I have now officially entered my second decade using Linux and free/open source software in a meaningful way. I began dabbling with Linux as early as 1995, but in June of 1996, I began using it for real when I created my first Web site. What's different these days from things 10 years ago?
Tools like the GIMP and similar graphical applications are great for modifying and manipulating images. Sometimes, however, they can be overkill for little things that need to be done, such as converting file types or resizing images. As well, a graphical tool can be time consuming and difficult to script, unlike CLI tools.
Shares of Red Hat Inc., the largest distributor of the Linux operating system, tumbled more than 7 percent Friday after a Wall Street analyst suggested that Oracle Corp. may soon introduce its own Linux products.
Though delayed for a while and later to market than most Mandriva fans would probably prefer, the new Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack Edition is finally here, nearly a year after the previous release.
After covering the basics of Yum in my first article, let’s move on to the second part. In this article I’d like to cover some things about keeping your system up to date with Yum on a CentOS 4 system.
Danger from the Deep (aka dangerdeep) is an Free/Open Source World War II german uboat simulation. This release brings an massive number of new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
So you want to find out what your linux system is doing? There are a few ways you can go about doing this. Actually, there are a ton of ways, but we’re going to look at a few of them. Some of them are graphical and pretty and some are CLI but all of them are useful.
So yesterday I tryed Beryl on Ubuntu Dapper, even though Beryl is only v.0.1 I must say it seems pretty stable and works great on my laptop... I will, in this post make a guide to how I got it all working..
For its time, I didn't know how "Return to Castle Wolfenstein" could be improved upon. When Id Software and Activision released its source code in 2004, however, the open source and mod community got to work. The result was "Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory," an open source effort by Splash Damage and other contributors that takes the best of the old game and actually improves upon a classic experience.
Open source technologies including Apache's Struts Java development framework and Jackrabbit content repository were among the projects debuting or getting upgraded at the ApacheCon conference in Austin, Texas, this week.
I found early versions of Linux weren't very user-friendly, so this time around, I used my 7-year-old son as my test subject. I gave him a little lesson on how to use Mandriva One and off he went. On his own, he was able to boot up the machine and get himself online to his favorite kid Web sites without any problems at all -- meaning today's Linux has a short learning curve.
WebAPP is a content management system written in Perl and licensed under the GNU General Public License. WebAPP requires no SQL backend, no PHP, only a hosting environment offering support for Perl.
Bill Gatliff provides a walkthrough of the portions of the Linux kernel that manage interrupts and describes how Linux interacts with interrupt controllers and how to adapt code for custom hardware.
Microsoft later this month plans to release a converter that will let Word users open documents saved in the OpenDocument format.
What do you get when you combine OpenSolaris, the GNU utilities, and Ubuntu? Nexenta -- a GNU-based open source operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. I took the Alpha 5 release out for a spin to see how well it's progressing. It might sound like an odd combination, but after more than a year of development, it actually works well, and is shaping up to be a very interesting operating system.
