Microsoft, Linux Distros Get Cozy: Let’s Get Scared

Filed under
Microsoft

OSWeekly: First we had Novell jumping onboard with Microsoft, and then came a cooperative deal with Xandros. Now we have Linspire following the trend and I’m left wondering: should we be worried? Many of you may point out that it is merely a handful of companies, but I see this differently. I see this as Microsoft trying to worm their way into the Linux market without making any real solid commitment to the users themselves.

jonas.io: I have notebook with a Intel HDA soundchip, it was not fully supported by the alsa 1.0.13 drivers that came with openSuSE 10.2 and no updated RPM’s was available. so I manually had to upgrade them to 1.0.14.

Filed under
MDV

tuxvaio: As with the installation of SuSE 10.1, installing Mandriva 2007 was frightfully simple. All devices worked with the sole exception of the wireless functionality of the Centrino. This can be fixed by a software download or a inexpensive Linux compatible PC card wireless adapter.

Weekly tip: killing processes

Filed under
HowTos

freesoftwaremagazine: One of the things I hate about Windows is that there is no good way to kill frozen processes. Theoretically, you type Ctrl-Alt-Delete, wait for Task Manager to pop up, and kill the process. GNU/Linux users don't have this problem. Here's how to end processes using the terminal, a few GUIs, and even a first person shooter.

PCLinuxOS & What Sets it Apart: Part I

Filed under
PCLOS

Yet Another Linux Blog: I originally intended this post to be a review of 2007 Final for PCLinuxOS. However, after finishing it up, I realized that posting a review wouldn’t have the desired effect of truly showing off PCLinuxOS to everyone. It would just be a “business as usual” type of post. So, I decided to do a analysis on what I feel sets PCLinuxOS apart from many Linux distributions.

Initial Review of Ubuntu 7.04 on Dell Laptop

Filed under
Ubuntu

ITtoolbox Blogs: Recently I found that Dell has partnered with Canonical to offer the latest version of Ubuntu (7.04) with the sale of new Dell computers. (See Dell Sells Computers with Ubuntu & 100th Entry!) This piqued my interest because of the hoops I had to jump through to get my Dell Intel Pro Wireless (IPW) 2200bg card to work with Fedora Core 4. My theory is that Ubuntu 7.04 should be incredibly easy to install and configure on my Dell laptop. So I put my theory to the test.
