Today I'm taking a look at this latest version of Slackware and explore the myth that Slackware isn't for newbies.
Continuing advancements in reliability and performance are elevating the role of open source in software development.

But is open source ready for such a transition?
Most people think that OpenOffice.org is a strong office-suite in its own right. But, when it came to a back-office document collaboration and management engine, like Microsoft SharePoint to enable OpenOffice users to work together, it was a different story.
From robots to ice cream machines, from Xbox to MP3 players to phones...
People are permitted to make and distribute derivative works only if they adhere to the same license terms as the original work. Accordingly, as noted by the court, "the GPL propagates from user to user and revision to revision; neither the original author, nor any creator of a revised or improved version, may charge for the software or allow any successor to charge."
Open source is certainly hot among the tech community, but if you mention the concept to IT leaders in the enterprise environment, they tend to immediately cringe. The inference being that "free stuff" can't possibly match the quality of products you pay for -- and the "DIY approach" is not manageable or secure enough for large enterprises. This kind of rash write-off plainly misses the mark!
A group of UK MPs has criticised the government because they say that the Department of Education and Skills (DfES) and Becta policies favours proprietary software vendors (such as Microsoft) in schools and colleges rather than allowing for the adoption of open source software.
Ubuntu uses Defoma,the Debian Font Manager,to centralize and simplify font management across all applications.Defoma, which stands for DEbian FOnt MAnager, provides a framework for automatic font configuration. An application whose configuration of fonts usually requires manual intervention can automate the process through Defoma, by installing a Defoma-configuration script. The script gets called whenever a font is installed and removed, so that the script may update the application configuration.Debian Font Manager — automatic font configuration framework.
These steps will show you how to create a functioning Linux system, with the latest 2.6 kernel compiled from source, and how to integrate the BusyBox utilities including the installation of DHCP. Plus, how to compile in the OpenSSH package.
Let's say you have a system with a few filesystems. One of those systems is getting tight on space, but the other has plenty of room. There are several ways to handle that. You could use a symbolic link.

In a frenzy of bans, Blizzard mistakenly banned a few Linux users who used a legitimate program called 'Cedega' to play WoW. Blizzard Entertainment deeply regrets the error, as we understand that this brief account closure presented you with an inconvenient and highly frustrating experience.
Canonical Ltd today announced it has scooped another two awards for Ubuntu, its leading-edge Linux distribution. At the Linux New Media Awards, on Wednesday 15th November, Ubuntu was awarded 'Most User-Friendly Linux Distribution', and Canonical the 'Best combination of Community and Commerce'.
Gentoo is one of the most difficult distributions to learn, though veteran Gentoo users might point out that its friendly community and extensive documentation can help new users. Here are some tips that might make Gentoo easier for anyone who wants to give it a try.
I have this weird relationship with the words “it’s not supported”. Whenever I’m talking to an audience of typical computer users about Linux I’ll hear those words. So why do people say “Linux is not supported”?
One of the recurring tasks in these inescapable group projects is combining your work for the final presentation. You can choose to copy and paste, or choose Insert > File, to combine the documents. But on a grand scale and with multiple authors continuing to update their content, this can cause problems.
Do you manage a website? Maybe you’re looking after the site for a small business. Maybe you’re doing it for a community group. Perhaps it’s your own personal site. You’d like it to be dynamic: to have some fresh news every week and a home page that’s always up to date. Therein lies the problem.
