Ubuntu Readers get an "A", Cnet blogger an "F"

Ubuntu

c|net blog: The first thing you learn when you write about technology is that the people who read your stuff are smarter than you'll ever be. So let me start by saying "Thank you" to all the Linux users who responded to last Friday's post on my travails trying to get Ubuntu 7.10, or "Gutsy Gibbon," to recognize my Linksys WPC300N wireless adapter.

Gaming

fareast.linuxdiary: MIB Live Games is a treasure trove for Linux gamers; at last count over 100 games, 48 in arcade alone. As it is based on Mandriva 2008 and to say that everything is included out of the box on this remaster of Mandriva 2008 ‘One’ would be an understatement indeed.

Upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit Fedora Linux without a system reinstall

Filed under
Linux

linux.com: Cross-grading to the 64-bit variant of your Linux distribution can help you use your resources more wisely. ver the years, I've talked to Fedora enthusiasts and Red Hat employees at Linux conferences about doing a cross-grade to 64-bit. I generally heard one solution: reinstall. However, I wanted to see if a cross-grade was feasible at a whole distribution level.

How Do You Install Linux Applications?

Filed under
Software

eWeek blogs: If you are a command line guru, you call upon your zypper, yum, conary, or apt-get from the terminal, and you awk sed grep your way to what you're after. For me, unless I know exactly what package I want--and I often don't--I typically turn to Synaptic.

vnunet.com: Although notebook computers are cheaper today than ever before, it's still rather unusual to see one for sale for less than £350. Asus's oddly-named Eee PC, then, is rather unusual. Not only is it a complete notebook computer that costs just £220 including VAT, but it's both tiny and portable.

Filed under
Software

wired blogs: If you're finding DigiKam or F-Spot, two of the many photo organization and editing tools for Linux, a bit limiting you may want to give Lightzone a try. The software isn't free, and curiously, isn't available for purchase either, but judging by the 20-day demo version currently available, it could end up a serious contender.

Filed under

linux.com: Wine allows users to run Windows programs natively under Linux without paying a dime. However, there's a tiny problem: programs running in Wine don't look so great.

  • Data Center Networking Performance: New Apps Bring New Requirements
    Large cloud services providers such as Amazon, Google, Baidu, and Tencent have reinvented the way in which IT services can be delivered, with capabilities that go beyond scale in terms of sheer size to also include scale as it pertains to speed and agility. That’s put traditional carriers on notice: John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president at AT&T technology and operations, for instance, said last year that AT&T wants to be the “most aggressive IT company in the world.” He noted that in a world where over-the-top (OTT) offerings have become commonplace, application and services development can no longer be defined by legacy processes.

    Virtualization has been a blessing for data centers – thanks to the humble hypervisor, we can create, move and rearrange computers on a whim, without thinking about the physical infrastructure. The simplicity and efficiency of VMs has prompted network engineers to envision a programmable, flexible network based on open protocols and REST APIs that could be managed from a single interface, without worrying about each router and switch.
