“What’s his beef with Linux?” I can imagine some people wonder if I have something against Linux. The first two contributions to Digiplace.nl were quite critical in tone.

One of the hardest things for users of other platform to understand is that GNU/Linux does not have a single graphical display. Instead, there are dozens, ranging from basic window managers that control the look and positioning of windows in the X Window system, to complete desktop environments with a wide variety of utilities and specially designed applications.
I would take a break from the regular broadband bashing and instead focus on the new imminent release of Ubuntu Linux, code named as Feisty Fawn. With cutting edge software, Ubuntu’s version promises to be better than ever before by incorporating huge support for Wireless networking cards, on demand installation of codecs and Windows migration tools.
this is a bit of a trick I stumbled across a few days ago. Konsole, the kde terminal application allows you to drag and drop files into it. When you drop the file, you can do a number of useful things with it. This is a very quick howto, highlighting this feature.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
In this article I'll help you get started with GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard. Instead of writing another GnuPG manual, I'll teach you how to generate your first keypair, sign/verify files and encrypt/decrypt files.
If you don't know what GnuPG is, this description from the official website will clear things up for you.
I have been using open source software since the beginning of 1995. It was about Linux (starting with Slackware, after an initial apprenticeship with SLS), then some FreeBSD and NetBSD, to continue with several Linux distributions. What a choice!
Chris Cornish is not your typical teenager. While other young people are finishing high school and hanging out with friends, 16-year-old Cornish is the systems administrator for a national Internet service provider (ISP) and network integrator, Perth-based Corporate IT Centre.
One thing must be said from the start: Microsoft Vista is a modern operating system that offers a variety of genuine improvements over Windows XP. On top of that, Vista also looks much spiffier than its predecessor. Even so, there are a variety of reasons not to blindly reach for Vista. A consideration of the alternatives is in order, and Linux is at the top of the list.
Ghost is a popular software in the Windows world for creating full backups of your PCs contents and helps in restoring individual files or the entire hard drive. One of the popular ways of archiving or creating images of Linux filesystems is to use liveCD distributions and tarring the entire contents.
But first, some motivation. Why use a sound server these days? Doesn’t ALSA work now? Well, there’s 3 main reasons to rig up PulseAudio:
There are lots of ways in which Linux applications can be tweaked to your personal taste. Here's one of my favourites...
In my quest for the ideal computing experience, Ubuntu is the winner. I’ve been switching between Windows XP, Windows Vista and Ubuntu [Feisty Fawn]; all in all, Ubuntu takes the cake for many reasons. If you are interesting in learning more about Linux then continue reading.
I have an older G4 eMac with 512Mb RAM. I upgraded the CD-Rom to a DVD burner and am installing Feisty on it. I did however run into issues just getting to the install. Here are the steps I followed to get a successful install started from the Live CD.
1. Download the ISO from here. (I grabbed the one labeled “Mac (PowerPC) and IBM-PPC (POWER5) desktop CD “).
Nearly two months ago, Raven Zachary, a senior analyst with The 451 Group, sent me his research report "Going Open: Software Vendors in Transition." I've been waiting for the chance to read it in full, but it hasn't been easy finding time to plow through its 66 pages. On a flight to Europe yesterday I found the time, and am glad I did.
I recently tried the latest version of Ubuntu and they're theming OpenOffice. I noticed they included the Tango version of OOo's icons. They look amazing so when I went back to OpenSuse I decided to try and get them on there. Here's the howto.

Those of you who are considering moving away from Windows to Linux for your desktop may need to be dispelled of a certain myth. No matter what distribution you ultimately choose to download, Linux is by no means free of financial cost.
There is one class of software whose authors want you to copy their work for free and encourage you to distribute it to others. It’s occasionally called Open Source software and it’s described by some as being “free”, since you can don’t have to purchase a licence in order to own or use it.
This tutorial shows how you can install InnoTek's VirtualBox on a Ubuntu desktop. With VirtualBox you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux and Windows under a host operating system.
What a perfect day. I'm in London today, and went to the Arsenal vs. Bolton match with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu.
