FOSDEM is yet another one of those catchy acronyms that stands for nothing less than "Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting". KDE will again be hosting a room dedicated to talks and chat about the free desktop.
The Andhra Pradesh government is forging ties with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). MIT will provide funding and technological assistance for developing and promoting different software components including an open source platform.
In December I posted a poll asking visitors to vote based on their desktop environment and graphical toolkit preferences. While there were many votes in each category, the most noteworthy is that nearly 60% of respondents care if either Gtk or Qt is being used. The data is interesting because it highlights some of the progress that still needs to be made so all Linux software can work equally well no matter what desktop environment is being used.
Mandriva has recently released the latest version of its next-generation firewall, NuFW 2.1.1. NuFW starts, like most Linux firewall software does, on the foundation of the Linux kernel's Netfilter. Where NuFW steers away from commonplace firewalls is by bringing the notion of user identity to the firewall's security rules.
A new patch for OpenOffice helps fix a critical bug that could allows hackers to take control of individual PCs -- but simply locating it could prove a challenge for many users.
Two little words, one very big difference. Open source database vendor MySQL AB recently altered some of the wording of its license in order to let users know that it won't automatically be licensed under the next version of the General Public License, or GPL (define) version 3, when that draft is finalized.
A new feature that will first be availble in the upcoming 2.6.20 kernel is KVM, a Kernel-based Virtual Machine. The project's webpage describes KVM as, "a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware. It consists of a loadable kernel module (kvm.ko) and a userspace component. Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual machines running unmodified Linux or Windows images.
No one had broached the subject. My inquiries with girlfriends and colleagues led me down a path into a revealing and sensual world as yet undiscovered. I discovered intimate bedroom secrets of why some women are explicitly attracted to those lovable fellows who prefer the penguin.
Part of what prompts this diatribe is the oh-so-predictable reaction to Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols' column this week on DesktopLinux, where he succinctly lists four reasons he believes Linux has fallen behind Windows. To accuse SJVN of being a shill for anti-Linux forces? How dense can you be?
Ubuntu Satanic Edition is not another distro, based on Ubuntu (as of now). It’s applying new themes, icon, wallpaper etc. You need to have Ubuntu installed before you apply Ubuntu SE.
Phishing schemes are proliferating, and this year may be the worst. Yet most companies remain in the dark about this threat, which can be squelched with encryption. One solution to the problem: TrueCrypt.
This year promises to be a big one for Linux, at least according to predictions by analysts and pundits in the early part of this decade. Whether or not these predictions pan out, here's a rundown of Linux and open source happenings you can reasonably expect to see in 2007.
The other day while on holiday I happened to cross the path of one of my favorite distros out there, just to see where things stood on their RC builds, and low and behold they had finalized their product and now they have officially released Dreamlinux Multimedia Edition 2.2 available for download. As excited as I was, I was curious as to why this hadn't been on Distrowatch, but honestly oversights from this small distro like communicating to Ladislav about the latest offering wouldn't surprise me.
Also: Dreamlinux 2.2 MULTIMEDIA EDITION
First, let me thank the hundreds of people who have taken time to email me about TUX. Virtually every message praised TUX and talked about why it was needed. Well, I agree. The issue is how to make it possible.
I recently had a friend using Ubuntu who’s time/date was constantly being set back to UTC, much to her frustration. Here’s how to change this behavior.
If you buy a computer, you often pay for Microsoft Windows even if you didn't ask for it and aren't going to use it. This article shows you how to return your unused Windows license and get your money back, freeing yourself from the Windows tax.
The closing of Fedora Legacy Linux returns us to the question of linking community support with the bottom line. Now Novell is piling on, linking its latest lead in Linux download statistics directly to RedHat's decision not to raise its contribution to the Legacy project. The claim is subject to dispute.
The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will showcase its self-powered, low-cost, XO laptop computer at the 2007 Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. The project aims to distribute -- free of charge -- millions of Linux-based laptops to needy children around the world.
If you have only ever used Windows and you are attempting to install Linux on your own, perhaps because you have never met another Linux user, then the Redhat installer was not the most friendly place to be. Anaconda is beautiful, and fantastic for technical users, but not particularly newbie friendly. So in the beginning, Ubuntu bypassed all this.
