computerworld: TDT 3D has put together a comparison of six 3D modeling tools. Many readers got quite worked up about one of the tools, Blender 3D 2.45. What was the problem? Certainly not the price.
ITtoolbox blogs: I have been slowly, piece by piece, assimilating components to create a new Locutus that will be more than just a bitzer but a new version of itself. I put all the parts together and, I was presented exactly what I had before. The same soul in a different body.
blogbeebe: It didn't take much to get rhea running smoothly again after the upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10. The first thing I did was ignore the shiny shiny and turn of all visual effects. That seemed to help tremendously. I then began to change the desktop elements into something I liked that also was reasonably light on the system:
searchcio.com.au: In these interviews, TechTarget ANZ's Ian Yates speak with analyst Kevin McIsaac from IBRS, Sun Microsystems' Laurie Wong and IBM's Phil MacLouchlainn. The hypothetical is the death of Unix at the hands of Linux.
the distrogue: After some assorted mishaps with some preview releases of openSUSE 10.3, it's finally stable enough for production use. And while I'm pleased with the result, I can't get rid of the feeling that the openSUSE team can do better.
kernelTRAP: "I think the decision to merge Smack is something that needs to be considered in the wider context of overall security architecture," suggested James Morris following Andrew Morton's recent comment.
Also: Virtual Compound Page Support
And: Andrew Morton's 2.6.24 merge plans
CBR: Only 5% of the 300 IT executives surveyed by Computer Business Review said they always opted for open source whenever possible, while three-quarters said it depended on the individual project. One in four of the companies had made it policy to avoid open source.
opensuse news: We have just published a survey on YaST, our systems management and installation framework. If you use any of the distributions openSUSE, SUSE Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, I encourage you to participate in our survey to support us improving YaST.
archlinux.org: I plan to step down as leader of Arch Linux and pass the torch. The reason for this is that I do not have the time to devote towards a leadership role in a project the size of Arch Linux, and Arch deserves someone who does. It needs some work, it needs some unification, and it needs someone at the helm who can devote a lot of time to it.
linux.com: If you spend most of your computing life in Firefox, it makes sense to consolidate other online activities in your browser. There are extensions that can help you to do just that: you can manage your bookmarks with the del.icio.us extension, chat on IRC channels using Chatzilla, and read RSS feeds in Sage. Jabber instant messaging users have their own extension: the SamePlace, a nifty IM client that, besides the basic Jabber functionality, offers a few unique and useful features.
sys-con.com: When we talk about Linux hardening, we typically mean runtime application hardening to improve application reliability, leading to expected and predictable execution despite undesirable operating conditions.
internetnews.com: Among the issues that Linux users, hardware and peripheral vendors may run into when trying to get into Linux is the issue of driver availability. Enter the Linux Driver Project. Led by Novell staffer Greg Kroah-Hartman, the group is aiming to get drivers and Linux users aligned.
matt asay: For those who can't be bought, just how much protection are you missing? Not very much, it seems to me, and to a range of open-source legal experts I e-mailed to solicit their opinions.
linux planet: This article is intended for people who have some computer expertise, even if it's Windows-only. At a minimum, you should be comfortable with the MS-DOS command line in Windows and have done a bit of Windows Registry editing to give you some experience with configuration files.
PR: The Linux Foundation and the Information-technology Promotion Agency today announced the signing of a collaboration agreement. The LF and IPA will work together to accelerate adoption of Linux and open source software in areas of technology development, standardization and legal activities.
blogs.techrepublic.com: I think Linux developers are targeting the wrong people. I think, in a number of instances, Linux developers are targeting themselves as the key user group for their tools. What made me come to that conclusion might surprise you.
iTWire: As free and open source software receives greater attention and recognition, several companies and packages are emerging as clear leaders and important influencers as well as visionaries that are sure to make a mark in the very near future. Here are my picks for who’s making a mark today and tomorrow on the FOSS world.
raiden's realm: Assault Cube is an open source 3d shooter done in the old school deathmatch style of gameplay, but with much newer graphics. Gameplay is especially good in this game due to the way it's implemented.
Powertop is a command-line tool released by Intel that shows you the power consumption of the applications running on your system. It works best on notebooks with Intel mobile processors and can help you find out the programs that put a strain on your notebook battery.
