XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start.
Perhaps one of the best Linux distributions tailored for older hardware is DeLi Linux. It's simple, and performs well enough to run on hardware as old as a 486. In fact, DeLi Linux runs on anything better than a 386 with at least 4MB of memory, though if you have only 4MB, don't expect stellar performance.
Giving desktop Linux a larger market share? To be honest, this can be a touchy subject for me, personally. Much of the reasoning behind my "rough feelings" on the matter stem from the fact that I disagree with much of the Linux and Microsoft camps in general. That's right, I think that large numbers from both groups are wrong, and it's because of this that each OS is experiencing so much trouble now in the press.
I had dinner with Fabrizio, a good friend and CEO of Funambol, the leading mobile open source company. Fabrizio said some things about open source that rang true with me, which I had not considered before.
Increased use of free and open source software in Europe could increase the region’s competitiveness with the US, according to a European Commission study.
The launch of Windows Vista has created a huge opportunity for Linux vendors to take a larger share of the corporate desktop market, according to the president of Linux Australia.
Last week I took a look at OpenSUSE, not from a desire to write a review (there are enough slavering "reviews" on the net) but as a brief experiment to get a wireless card working. My comments on the distribution, therefore, should be looked at in that context.
Let me explain the Rules of Slashdot:
- We love Apple (especially when they do something just like Microsoft, and even more if their product is vaporware).
- We hate Microsoft (especially when they do something just like Apple, and even more when their product is vaporware).
Is Linux ready for mainstream? I'm going to focus on Ubuntu here.. because that's what I know, and as far as I can tell it's ahead of the curve.
First of all, the Oxygen team now started to develop a Oxygen like style for KDE 4 with mouse pointers, sound and all. Although I have to admit that I tend to think about simple computer games for kids when I hear the new sound I like it that it is all developed and discussed now and not 5 minutes before the release of KDE 4 - it means we will see high quality stuff coming out of the process.
Also: KDE on windows
I’m often asked why I’m so obsessed with backward compatibility and, as a result, why I’ve made the issue such a central part of the LSB over the past year. Yes, it’s hard, particularly in the Linux world, because there are thousands of developers building the components that make up the platform.

Ubuntu NL has created a sources.list generator for Ubuntu. Enter your current system, select your desires, and it creates & displays a workable sources.list.
So, Day 3 found me moving into my PC-BSD desktop. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience. I learned a few things. Today the PC-BSD team put out an update to the PC-BSD 1.3, which is now is at 1.3.01. This is great, because it gave me a chance to use the Update Manager. I am pleased to report that it worked perfectly. And then the trouble started.
The openSuSE or just the old SUSE linux is the other M$ rival. It is by far in my experience the GREAT Microsoft rival ever. It has always been towards Desktop and usability. A truly DESKTOP linux distribution which offers its new YaST tool. Well not that it is new but it is far better than the last YaST I have tried.
This guide describes how you can automatically scan files uploaded by users through a web form on your server using PHP and ClamAV. That way you can make sure that your upload form will not be abused to distribute malware. To glue PHP and ClamAV, we install the package php5-clamavlib/php4-clamavlib which is rather undocumented at this time. That package is available for Debian Etch and Sid and also for Ubuntu Dapper Drake and Edgy Eft.
If anyone needs a Linux desktop which is fast on a pentium 3 machine with ram less than 256mb, Zenwalk-4.2 is one of the clear candidates. Yeah, you can also opt for Xubuntu, fluxbuntu, etc. Slackware-based Zenwalk was previously know as Minislack.
To create panorama images in GIMP, you need to install the Pandora plugin. Pandora is a GIMP plug-in which helps in stitching together multiple images to make a panorama. It does not find image matches automatically, but it does automate the most tedious part of making a panorama.
opensuse-xgl-settings is a script that can enable, disable and configure xgl/compiz on openSUSE 10.2 with point and click.
