Mathematics is the King of Science. Commercial uses for mathematical workstations are vast: From basic engineering to designer drugs and from gene therapy to celestial navigation, mathematics rules the world. Many tools are available for use on UNIX that can satisfy your quest for mathematical enlightenment. This article shows you the way to mathematical nirvana on a UNIX workstation.
Microsoft and Novell are entering into a partnership that could help Novell's Linux operating system, according to a media report Thursday. Under the agreement, which isn't final, Microsoft will offer sales support to Novell's Suse Linux.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has unveiled a new Linux distribution, free of the proprietary software contained in most Linuxes. gNewSense is based on Ubuntu and Debian, and offers users "the stability of Ubuntu with the addition of freedom," developers Brian Brazil and Paul O'Malley said.
I recently promised my son, Justus, that I would set up a laptop for his exclusive use. I have an old Compaq Presario 1200 whose sole purpose is to prevent dust from gathering on a particular shelf in my bedroom. This Presario has about 192MB of RAM, a 10GB hard drive, and an 800Mhz Celeron processor. Sounds like a perfect candidate for Linux to me. I burned the Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) desktop CD and booted the laptop with it.
Raphaël is known for his work on Kubuntu, and more recently on Ichthux, a Linux distribution based on Kubuntu and aimed at Christian users and communities. In his interview, we learn how Raphaël’s Christianity has influenced his involvement in the open source community, how he feels non-English speakers fare and what he gets up to in his spare time.
There is a vast array of documentation installed with your typical Linux distribution. There are the ancient and venereal. It would be nice to have all of this stuff in one place. Enter the dhelp
The ultimate goal of the Unicode Consortium is to define all human languages for use with computers. That goal is still some ways off, but, with the release of version 5.0 of the Unicode standard after nearly three years of work, the consortium has taken a step toward it.
The second KDE 4 developers snapshot is now available. This 3.80.2 release includes source from all the KDE modules. Application developers are strongly advised to work primarily on KDE 4 from now on.
Windows Vista brings with it a new era of DRM and restrictive license agreements that aren't going to sit well with even your basic power user and some are looking for an escape route. These changes are making some users question their commitment to Microsoft. The obvious step is to make the leap to Linux. But what's holding people back?
There have been a number of problems with folks upgrading from Ubuntu 6.06 to 6.10 (Dapper to Edgy). I’ve also heard an unusually large amount of invective concerning the process and the end result. Should you be miffed after an upgrade goes wrong and your left with either hours of trouble shooting or a full reinstall? Sure. Before you get overly angry however, let’s all step back and keep a few things in mind.
Lintrack is a new GNU/Linux distribution for routers, firewalls, network access servers and more. It features new approaches to several areas such as system configuration and integration, but has many ideas inspired by traditional Linux distributions as well. I would like to introduce you to the project and provide step-by-step instructions for configuring Lintrack as a simple OSPF backbone router and a PPPoE network access server
Excellent competition forced our editors to make some difficult decisions for the 2006 Editors' Choice Awards for software, hardware and services. In the end, the process was fun, despite the challenge. We hope some of your favorites captured top honors, or if not, managed to get an honorable mention. So, on with the show.
Debian-based live CD distribution Knoppix is widely known as a distro with excellent hardware detection. The latest 5.0.1 version, released in June, builds upon its legacy and continues to improve.
The VLC media player is an open source media player, distributed under the GNU General Public License. It is a highly portable multimedia player that supports many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs and various streaming protocols. It is able to stream over networks and to transcode multimedia files and save them into various different formats.
This new 1.4.1 release contain major bug fixes and several enhancements, such as on-the-fly changing of text and hud size and a new hexen2 dedicated server application. Support for Mac OS X and QNX are also included. All users are encouraged to upgrade.
While the capabilities of operating systems have improved over the last years, the improvements have largely focused on under the hood changes. But the graphical interface of the computer itself is keeping the same concepts introduced with its appearance. One could argue that the graphical environment of computers is exactly the same for the last 10 years and only cosmetic changes take place in newer versions of operating systems. This article describes a solution which attempts to free the user from the files/folder concept.
The quality publishing around Ubuntu these days cannot be ignored. Another excellent book sits here beside me now, pages flagged with many points of interest. I wasn’t anticipating doing so much detailed reading with this one. But before the chapters even began, I found myself interested in learning about the authors and the development style used in putting together this book.
We put a lot of effort into our Linux offerings on our workstations and servers. We work directly with engineers at Intel, Red Hat, and Novell/SuSE on specific client features, such as ACPI testing, suspend-to-RAM and suspend-to-disk, hot plug device bays and docking station support.
I've done a number of reviews of Winamp and have been progressively less happy with it. Winamp is "free" in the sense that it doesn't cost anything — but it is still a commercial, proprietary work. It has gotten slightly more intrusive, slightly more obnoxious, and slightly more bloated with every new version. Of course, the obvious alternative, Windows Media Player, is worse. I thought it might be time to expand my horizons a bit. I decided to try VideoLan's VLC Media Player.
There was a time when publishing content online required fairly good technical knowledge even when the data resided in static HTML pages. Then the blogging revolution happened and the rest as they say is history. Now a days it is possible to publish content online even without an iota of knowledge about the HTML elements.
