I've tested and/or reviewed every version of this operating system (now on its third name) since the first version, and each time I start out impressed but end up walking away disappointed. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 is not an exception to this tradition.
For intensive word-only writing, most of us can type on a keyboard far faster than we can scrawl with a pen, but the speed advantage is reversed for anything that requires diagramming or mathematical formulas. The open source application Xournal, which is designed to provide keyboard-less text entry and drawing features, is one solution. Taking freehand notes without that clunky, old-fashioned keyboard has never been easier.
These days, the average installation is pretty big - and many of the most popular programs take up huge swaths of space. Even with a 60GB hard drive like the one in my laptop, you still have to pay close attention lest it become Godzilla, The Eater Of All Available Space (and time, too - but we're not talking about Quake III or Xbubble at the moment.)
KDevelop is the premier Free integrated development environment. The project is currently working towards KDevelop 3.4 with a bunch of new features and a major new version KDevelop 4. To find out what's coming up in one of KDE's most important projects KDE Dot News spoke to three of the authors about their current work and future plans HERE.
Your most elaborate disaster recovery plans are only as good as your backups. In the context of routers (and most firewalls), all configuration is normally stored as a plain-text file in flash memory or some sort of NVRAM. Creating a replica of a router in case of catastrophic failure is simply a matter of physically plugging in a cold standby and copying the configuration from some backup medium onto the new device.
We've been talking, meeting, and arguing over GPL 3 for nearly two years. Recently, the second draft of the long-awaited rewrite of the popular free-software license arrived. The debate has begun all over again. If we're lucky, we'll see a finished GPL 3 some time in early 2007.

Did you ever wish you could automate your interaction with a program, making a script that can smartly handle an interactive session? You can -- with Expect, an extension to the Tcl programming language whose purpose is to communicate with interactive applications.
The purpose of this post is to give folks that have never used Ubuntu (or even Linux) and idea of what Ubuntu is all about. The reason for putting this together is that most of the existing reviews online are exactly that: reviews.
Free software advocates are defending revisions to the General Public License, while critics emerge to oppose the most recent version.
Yahoo! doesn't plan to release all its software code under an open source license because it's unpractical and carries limited benefits, Yahoo! developer Jeremy Zawodny said on his blog.
Pervasive Software has pulled the plug on its PostgreSQL-based database offering after a year and a half.
Andrew Morton has started working for a new company, but his day job as the Linux 2.6 kernel maintainer will remain exactly the same. The new company is none other than Google.
This is a very rough guide at the moment, corrections welcome.
This method doesn't remove Windows in any way, similar to booting from CD-ROM on a PC
When open source developers gather on a panel to discuss whether "all software will go open source," you can expect the sentiment to tip that way, only with lots of arguments.
When it comes to installing new installations of Debian GNU/Linux there is one tool which should not be ignored. Whether you're dealing with a real system, or a virtualised one, the debootstrap tool is ideal for quickly installing new Debian environments.
After rave reviews as a desktop OS, Ubuntu Linux is finally attracting the support of developers as a server platform. The expanded sphere of influence for this free operating system is due in part to a renewed effort by developers like Benjamin Mako Hill -- he goes by Mako -- who promote the server side components of the latest Ubuntu release, version 6.06, as a viable alternative to its proprietary counterparts. Mako took a break from his work on Ubuntu this week to speak with SearchOpenSource.com.
Thanks to Wildbill’s cellphone photo clicking speed, we now can see the first Ubuntu billboard. Ever.
Firefox has signed a distribution agreement with Real Networks after hitting the 200 million download mark, but analysts believe it should be doing more
