Python is a very handy tool whenever you need to put together a small script that manipulates some files in a few minutes. Moreover, it is also useful for bigger projects, as you get all the power you from data structures, modularization, object orientation, unit testing, profiling, and the huge API.
Students at Brooks Elementary School won't be writing reports on computers any more. They won't be using CDs or hard drives. They won't even see a computer in the new technology lab. Instead, students at Brooks are among the first to work on a new system that allows students to work with just a monitor, keyboard, mouse and small transmitter.
In a continued effort to help the GNU/Linux movement I've taken it upon myself to write some guidelines on a topic that is rather confusing for someone new the Linux. I aim to help answer the second question that most people ask. KDE or Gnome?

I work in a commercial prepress shop. I use Photoshop, at work, almost every single day. At home, I run Linux. I use the Gimp, personally, as I don't intend to commercially print any of the images I create. Head to head, which of these two programs are "better"?
Suppose you have an email account and a shell account on a Unix server. Furthermore, suppose that you yourself use a laptop and download your mail from the server by POP3 or IMAP, and send it via SMTP using the server as a smarthost. Now imagine that for some reason ( your dynamic IP, or your geographic location ) SMTP access is denied. What can you do?
The new year has brought a new release of the Knoppix live CD. Along with the usual updates to application software, the most noticeable change in version 5.1.1 is the inclusion of the Beryl 3-D desktop with the Emerald theming engine.
A leading user of the Mule project posted a glowing case study on the Mule (leading open source ESB) project a few days ago. Why is "the community" up in arms? Well, it turns out that a few people that don't use Mule are incensed by the fact that it is licensed under the...Mozilla Public License. Well, not quite - they're incensed that Mule is licensed under the MPL plus has an addendum (permitted under the MPL) that requires attribution ("Powered by MuleSource" or something like that).

I thought of a friend's ex-husband when I learned this week that despite Microsoft's promises of a new openness and its assertions regarding interoperability for its OOXML (formerly known as OpenXML and also known as EOOXML) and despite having offered it as a *standard*, it seems that it's another case of promises, promises. From what I've been reading, which I'll share with you, I think it's time to ask ourselves some serious questions: does OOXML really qualify as a standard? Or is it yet another monopoly-enabler in the guise of a standard?
