Raiden's Realm: Having become a fan of PcLinuxOS after a recent review of their 2007 version, I've followed its development with interest. One of those is TinyMe, a live cd derivative of PCLOS, that offers you the best of its parent, with the small size common to "lite" distributions or "distros" as they're more commonly called.
zdnet blogs: Over the past few weeks several people have asked me if it’s possible to set up a Windows XP/Linux dual-boot system on a PC that already has Windows XP installed on it, and if it’s possible, how easy is the process.
dot.kde.org: The Amarok team needs your help. Amarok are looking for a new, shiny and fresh jingle to play at first start of Amarok 2.0 and are holding a contest to find one.
computerworld.com: A free beta Web site unveiled yesterday from open-source consulting firm Optaros Inc. is designed to tackle that problem. The site, Enterprise Open Source Directory, is billed as a one-stop information repository on some 300 enterprise-ready open-source applications.
Information Week: Lenovo on Tuesday introduced its highest performing notebook, a Linux mobile workstation powered by an Intel Centrino Pro processor.
ITtoolbox Blogs: We live in a world of sound. Many sounds are jarring and loud like traffic or construction work. Other sounds are dull and boring like elevator music. Still more sounds are pleasant. The biggest problem is how to get the collection of silver plastic disks converted to electronic form for those portable grooving machines.
FreeSoftware Mag: Your GNU/Linux computer is an amazing machine. It can display images. It can run programs. It can perform dozens of functions all at the same time. How can you keep track of all this activity? By monitoring the processes that your computer runs, and one of the best ways to monitor and control processes is by using the command line.
Paul Murphy: For many jobs there’s a PC way and a Unix way. For example, I write these blogs using vi under either CDE (Solaris 10) or Gnome (Solaris 9) and just embed references and format information as I go along. The result is extremely portable because the text is independent of the format.
OSWeekly: Not too long ago, I subscribed to a Linux magazine for beginners called Tux. Fantastic magazine, but the last I heard they were "headed out," so to speak, due largely to a lack of funding. Now we are presented with the question: will Full Circle Magazine fall victim to the same fate as the once beloved Tux Magazine? Not likely. Why?
linux.com: NoMachine recently released version 3.0 of its remote desktop product line. NX 3.0 has some interesting advantages over similar products -- but also some pitfalls for inexperienced users.
synergymx: There is a distinct lack of good applications for tracking your calendar, email, and tasks all in one location. Some applications do email but not calendar, where as others do calendars without email. As a business user there is a connection between the two.
LinuxWorld: Len Brown can only be a glutton for punishment; he is, after all, the maintainer of the Linux ACPI subsystem. That is a difficult position to be in: ACPI involves getting into the BIOS layer, an area of system software which is not always known for careful, high-quality work.
Penguin Pete: Check out what happens when a tool that has been a standard part of Unix - for what 30 years now? - gets ported to Windows for the first time. Here is "wingrep", the grep for Windows. So, today, class, we will learn all about (writing it on the chalkboard and underlining it twice) grep!:
Mandriva Press Release: Mandriva Korea (MetaNav) begins operations in order to offer Mandriva Linux solutions to organizations and people all over South Korea and the East Asia area.
CLICK: CentOS 5.0 loads OK, if a little slow (it was flummoxed for a minute by an unused SATA port), but upon launch looks much like Fedora, which is should, since CentOS is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux clone.
engadget: Just when we're in full-on video game mode, along comes a friendly tipster with some shots of the supposed successor to Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet.
CyberNetNews: One of the major disadvantages of Linux is that it won’t let you play most Windows games. On the other hand, lots of great free Linux games have been developed over the last couple of years. Here’s a list.
intranetjournal.com: In this article, we'll examine ten of these applications, with the understanding that both browser and email clients will not be in this list. The reason being is that default browser and email clients are already installed in nearly all desktop Linux distributions.
MaximumPC: Propriety formats, while convenient in their ubiquity, are inherently problematic, and there are some very compelling reasons to think twice about how you save your files. Here's why you should use open formats, and convince your colleagues (hint, hint to my colleagues) to do the same.
Red Hat Mag: The kernel uses heuristics to guess which pages of memory are likely to be needed in the near future, and tries to keep those pages in memory, regardless of whether they belong to processes or kernel caches.
