In today’s Firefox 3 (code name Gran Paradiso) meeting, developers released a preliminary list of requirements for Firefox 3. The new target release date is sometime in the third quarter this year.
Traditionally (if something I'm doing for a second year can be considered to have a tradition), the last day of my show reporting is devoted to the strange and the silly at CES. However, given that all of the space yesterday went to OLPC coverage, I'm going to have to mix in some actual products in today's coverage.
SabayonLinux 3.26 was released on Jan 7, only a short time after 3.25. This maintenance release is the last of the 3.2 series and the team will now concentrate on 3.3. While many reviews shout accolades to this rising star, Tuxmachines once again suffered a loss of data making our experience a bit mixed. This is a short description of our time with SabayonLinux.
Matthew Aslett of Computer Business Review brings to my attention that a recent article by the Salt Lake Tribune's Bob Mims, "Novell underscores support for free software development", includes an inaccuracy. Because the article has been widely quoted and it is currently linked to on Novell's web site, it seems important to correct it.
British university students are being offered cash incentives to write open source software - and the first beneficiary is a Python programmer from Swansea.
A new generation of broadcasters are to join the world's airwaves after the launch of open-source software which allows people to run a radio station from a single computer for free.
Never mind what the Chinese calendar says. This is going to be the year of the penguin, at least on Madison Avenue. Penguins have long been popular in advertising, but they have become even more so after three successful movies with penguin characters.
It is now only a few days until the awesomeness that is Linux.Conf.Au starts. Looking at the line up of speakers, including Ubuntu’s own Jono, Scott, Robert, Matthew and Richard it looks to be pretty awesome.
Following up on my earlier post on the open source release of Second Life, I've now successfully built Second Life from source on both Mac OS X and Ubuntu. The Mac OS X build in Xcode went smoothly. The build in Linux was a little more finicky, but not bad considering that it's still alpha. Read on if you'd like to vicariously live the gory details.
One day while perusing the back room where the old hardware is kept, I spotted an old laptop in its docking station buried under some other hardware. At my desk I booted it up and in no time was using Windows 95 but I wondered if I could improve the situation a bit. The obvious choice for a new OS was Linux.
As Ubuntu continues to make its presence known throughout the world, it was only a matter of time before the project spawned an offshoot variation or two that would enable people with lower-spec machines to participate in all that Ubuntu goodness.
The organisation working on a low-cost laptop for developing-world education has rushed to deny speculation that the machines may become generally available to the public, following news reports earlier this week.
If you want to share your knowledge and ideas with others, you set up a blog. If you want to collaboratively edit Web pages and keep track of changes, you use a wiki. If you need a tool that allows you to quickly set up a page that combines blog and wiki features, with some content versioning capabilities thrown in, you need something like EditThisPagePHP, a PHP script that allows you to create Web pages and do some clever things with them.

A thread on the lkml began with a query about using O_DIRECT when opening a file. An early white paper written by Andrea Arcangeli to describe the O_DIRECT patch before it was merged into the 2.4 kernel explains, "with O_DIRECT the kernel will do DMA directly from/to the physical memory pointed [to] by the userspace buffer passed as [a] parameter to the read/write syscalls.

More and more organizations are consolidating physical hardware using virtualization. But virtualization technology and tools aren't limited to big-dollar corporations. With the free-as-in-beer VMware Player, and the very cheap VMware Workstation, you too can use this fancy technology to utilize the processing horsepower of cheap multi-core hardware available off-the-shelf.
