Oxygen folders have changed already 3 times since I first started the project back to 2005. That’s because “folders” are really important, and together with “file sheet” and basic actions, they really define the look and feel of the desktop.
A new release of GoboLinux is out, which among other things contains glibc 2.5, X.Org 7.2, GCC 4.1.2, KDE 3.5.6, and the Linux 18.104.22.168 kernel. This is the first release candidate for GoboLinux 014 so expect more changes shortly.
The FISL congress is over and it was great talking to the enormous amount of people who showed interest in the XO learning laptop and the OLPC project. It was nice to see people’s interest turn into large smiles by the time I was done explaining the project and answering their questions.
I’ve long believed there’s a general phenomenon that underlies the free software movement. It’s “volunteer-driven, internet-powered collaboration” and I think it will ultimately touch every industry that has any digital workflow. And lets face it, that’s pretty much every industry.
The phenomenon has three key elements:
1. Freedom-driven licensing.
Put your sleuthing caps on dear readers, we've got a new case for you. A blurry video has surfaced of a Sony Ericsson P990i running a mobile version of Ubuntu. With the aid of a soldering gun and "special software," someone by the name of Wizolabo seems to have produced a working copy of the favored Linux distro running on the favored SE superphone.
KDE was present at Cebit 2007 in Hannover, the world's largest IT fair. The booth was located inside the LinuxPark in Hall 5, where Linux New Media had given us and other open source projects the opportunity to present their work.
Open source software provider OpenLogic last week announced the results of a survey focusing on the most recent draft of the GPLv3 (General Public License).
I don't even post a link to it, because you'd almost have to be dead not to have seen it somewhere already. If you haven't seen it yet, a simple Google of "tux500" will do. This is the project where two bloggers have started a massive campaign to raise $350,000 to put a Tux sticker on the side of a car that will be racing in the Indy 500.
I’ve already had the pleasure of testing Pardus once and it made a good impression on me. Recently the new edition, Pardus 2007.1, came out and I’ve decided to try both the LiveCD and the installation versions. This edition is almost fabulous, but “almost” makes a big difference which we are going to elaborate on a bit later.
In my first SuitWatch Newsletter, on September 5, 2002, I wrote this: "A funny thing happened to Linux on the way to World Domination: it succeeded. That's the good news; the bad news is its success has hit a few hitches, and it's unclear how long those hitches will last."
DUAL-BOOTING Ubunto and Windows XP over six weeks gives a great insight into the strength's and weaknesses of the two operating systems.
So far most of the "is Linux ready for the desktop" reviews I have done have focused on the problems of installing the beast. However once it is installed and configured it is easy to see how much ground Ubunto has cut from under XP.
Proftpd is an excellent FTP server with many features. Wouldn't it be nice to see who is connected to your FTP server and what they are doing all in a convenient web-interface? phpftpwho allows you to see who is accessing your Proftpd FTP server all in a convenient web-interface. It is simple to install and only requires Proftpd, Apache, and PHP.
This feature includes various hacks to boost Ubuntu's performance, such as viewing running processes, identifying resources, finding process startups, tuning kernel parameters, and speeding up boot time. This is a complete chapter in the ExtremeTech book "Hacking Ubuntu: Serious Hacks Mods And Cusomtizations."
On Oct 24,2003 a build server became self-aware and named himself Texstar and began building rpm pacakages and creating iso's called PCLinuxOS. Other servers became self aware ocilent1, sal server, thac, ivan, davecs, the darb and others and the whole thing became known as the devnet. One goal, one mission... to create the best linux desktop in the world.
Always colorful with its names, Canonical has birthed the server, desktop and education versions of its "Feisty Fawn" Ubuntu Linux.
In its blasé form, the new version of Linux ships as Ubuntu 7.04 Server Edition, Desktop Edition and Edubuntu. The OS falls under Canonical's short-term, 18-month maintenance program, as opposed to the "Dapper Drake" 6.04 release, which enjoys five year support.
For Linux business users, the most important Linux release of 2007 so far is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. But for most other Linux fans, the upcoming release of Ubuntu Version 7.04 on April 19 demands more attention.
The Ubuntu version of Linux is getting more virtualization-friendly, but in a different way than its top rivals.
Ubuntu's 'feisty' spin on virtualization The Ubuntu version of Linux is getting more virtualization-friendly, but in a different way than its top rivals.
I’ve mentioned a few times lately that I’m working on my backup plan for GNU/Linux. I started by looking at great free software tools like Samba’s rsync and GNU Tar, and I don’t think I need to look much further than them. There is also GNU Cpio, which I haven’t really investigated yet.
I’ve been a fan of the DD-WRT router firmware for some time. I’ve even done a couple of post about installing and upgrading a Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT firmware. DD-WRT firmware runs on a number of wireless Linux based routers and provides capabilities far beyond factory firmware, such as VOIP, VPN and advanced traffic control.
