Our plans include shipping pre-compiled libraries to affect DirectX handling in wine. In other words: We would like to give you native support for the DirectX API.
i recently ran into the problem of not having enough hard drive space on my slackware linux laptop, but was lucky enough to have a much bigger drive sitting around from before and wanted a way to perform a hassle free seamless upgrade. i had this idea and it worked pretty well so i thought i would share it.
Taylor said that he didn't understand why so many people were concerned about an e-mail exchange between two people. "This is just a bunch of freaks out there that don't have anything better to do," he said. "[CentOS is] a free operating system that this guy gives away, which tells you how much time he's got on his hands."
OpenSource and FreeSoftware is all about contributing and fixing bugs that you find annoying, developping softwares because nobody else want to do it. With Ubuntu, it becomes a huge problem because there are too few bugs and more and more users just use it and like it !
Here's a wonderful chart of some of the major milestones in computer history, including unix/linux, organized by years and technology/company. Interesting, informative and bookmarkable.
A GNU/Linux operating system is made of a Linux kernel, a set of GNU tools, an installation program, a package management system and a lot of other software components. This article is dedicated to the 10 most famous and popular: Debian, Slackware, Fedora, Mandriva, Suse, Ubuntu, Knoppix, Gentoo, Mepis and Xandros.
In a press release on the Mozilla Web site, and announced on several news Web sites as well, a statement from the Mozilla foundation declared that Internet Explorer will be in the hands of Mozilla with immediate effect.
In any Linux distribution, some services are enabled to start at boot up by default. Usually, it is prudent to disable all services that are not needed as they are potential security risks and also they unnecessarily waste hardware resources. So how do you disable these services so that they are not started at boot time?
The April 2006 issue of TUX is now available to download. This month's highlights include:
- Distribution Smackdowns: SuSE Linux 10.0, Ubuntu/Kubuntu, Mandriva, Mepis, and more
- TUX Explains: Fluxbox
- Diversions: The Battle of Wesnoth
For an undisclosed sum reputed to be in the billions, Microsoft's Bill Gates has personally bought the leading open-source desktop project. Saying he "was sick and tired of open-source eating away at his profits," the world's richest man decided to put an end to the nuisance and simply buy OpenOffice.org.
This is a brief tutorial on how to sync websites to your palm for offline reading. The websites are stored in Plucker format. You will need to install the Plucker viewer for palm.
If you like changing the look of your desktop every 5 minutes, then a new distribution might just be for you.
Commercial software can be costly in more ways than one. As if hefty license fees weren't bad enough, product support is limited to whatever services the vendor agrees to sell you, at a price that's tough to negotiate. Of course, you could fix program bugs yourself if you had access to the source code-but the typical software maker doesn't provide this. So how do you break the cycle of vendor dependency? One popular choice is to explore open-source alternatives.
Call me a dodo bird, but my desktop OS is OpenVMS, an operating system that's secure, reliable, and low-cost, with consistent performance and desirable functionality.
The Internet was born using plain text and no encryption. For a long time the TCP/IP protocol suite had no mechanism for cryptographically protecting transported data. Encryption was added at the application layer — Netscape's Secure Socket Layer (SSL) being a famous example. The design process of IPv6 incorporated encryption into the protocol itself, and the IPsec (IP security) framework came into existence.
It has been three long years to the day since we last looked at that unusual distribution called Windows. Although at that time it was considered by many to be little else than a bizarre joke (who on earth would design an operating system that doesn't provide a way to grep files?), a recent rumour about a new release has piqued our curiosity.
There has been a little bit of a Catch-22 obstacle standing between deployment levels of Linux as they are now and what they could be. And that obstacle, whether anyone likes it or not, is the perceived level of support for Linux and other free and open source software packages.
The first release candidate of GoblinX 1.3 is out today.

Tremulous is Released and you can Download it for free! Tremulous is a free open-source game like Nexuiz and stands under GPL, you have to fight as a team and destroy enemys structures to win.
One of the perks of writing for a site as big as Ars is the fact that sometimes you get stuff in the mail. A few days ago I received a few DVD-ROMs from 3D Realms containing some old E3 footage of Duke Nukem Forever, and I was shocked to find there was a playable demo spread across the four DVDs. Would I be one of the first people to actually play this game?
