This tutorial is written for everyone: even if you've never programmed before or if you have used other languages and want to expand into C++! It is for everyone who wants the feeling of accomplishment from a working program.
In an earlier post I enthused about how wonderful the Ubuntu 7.04 installation was on old hardware. One single datapoint does not a trend make, however. Others have attempted to install and work with Ubuntu, and walked away from it back to Windows. With that in mind I decided to boot the 7.04 distribution disk on my Gateway M685 notebook and see how it behaved.

MAC addresses are often taken for granted, things that nobody thinks about. However there are times when you do need to worry about them. Here we'll demonstrate how to view and change the MAC address of your Debian system.
This weekend, the Free and Open Source Developers European Meeting will be held at the Université Libre in Brussels, Belgium. The schedule for the KDE devroom is now published.
Etherboot is an open source project that gets little public notice, but is essential to almost any other open source project that relies on thin clients or network booting. Here's a lightly edited log of an IRC conversation with Etherboot project leader Marty Connor and primary Etherboot developer Michael Brown.
Version 1.0 of NTFS-3g, a free NTFS driver for Linux, has been released. Project manager Szabolcs Szakacsits has declared the driver ready for productive use after the release candidate published two weeks ago was not changed.
Mozilla's Firefox browser lost market share last month, according to web metrics company Net Applications. But Apple's Safari continued to gain ground, an indicator of a slow but sure uplift in Mac sales.
The objective of this tutorial is to show new users how to use and implement many of the shell's methods for providing automation at various levels. It demonstrates these methods by giving tricks and tips for special situations, and it also presents a rundown of useful shell one-liners for common tasks.
Many changes have gone into the SUSE Linux operating system since version 10.1, including a name change: the entire operating system is now known only as openSUSE. All of those changes appear to have been for the better -- openSUSE 10.2 is as great a release as 10 was -- but despite the improvements and bug fixes, there are still several underlying problems that prevent openSUSE 10.2 from being competitive with commercial desktop operating systems.
With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. This tutorial is the first of a series of articles where I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Fedora Core 6 in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.
Well I am happy to report that my third day with KDE has shaped up better than the second. I’ll admit that by the end of yesterday I was just counting the days until I could switch back. Today is a different story.
I’ve been testing Windows Vista Ultimate for a week now, and now I think I’ve just had enough and I’m removing it from my PC, it has not made me switch from my OpenSUSE 10.2 Linux installation.

I finally broke down and installed Ubuntu (7.04 Alpha 3) over Fedora Core 6 this evening. I decided to do this after reading about Eric Raymond's rant against his installation of FC6. In the end he installed Ubuntu 6.10 over it. So I decided I'd give it a whirl as well.

Jack pointed me to something tonight that sounds very interesting: The Red Hat Challenge. I guess it's a bit like Google's Summer of Code, in a way, but with bigger money, an MBA slant, and the chance to present to Red Hat's management team.
Linux distributor TerraSoft is accepting pre-orders for Sony Playstation3 gaming devices pre-installed with Linux, alongside the PS3's native gaming OS. Additionally, TerraSoft, IBM, RapidMind, and Vivendi game publisher High Moon Studios are offering seminars to help game developers exploit the PS3's Cell architecture.
I believe some of you have already read my blog and will summarize that I’m an Ubuntu user and advocator. However, having said that doesn’t mean that I dont have things that I hate about Ubuntu.
