Of all computer problems, the unresponsive hang is the most annoying and most difficult to trace. There's no crash, no panic: everything just stops dead. The keyboard is useless, telnets just time out - you have no choice but to power cycle the machine.
About a month ago I first installed Kubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) on one of my home office machines. I really liked it. Last week, I decided to ditch the old version of Mandriva I've been running for about 18 months on my primary machine, a Toshiba laptop, and give Kubuntu a try there too. This time using the latest version, 6.10, otherwise known as Edgy Eft.
Having been raised on DOS and the early generations of Windows, I rediscovered that sense of excitement in a pure computing experience when I first tried other Linux versions over the years. However, they required a steep learning curve and caused too much frustration with setup and obscure command-line options. Not so with Ubuntu Linux.
The growing fallout over the Novell-Microsoft deal has prompted Novell to roll out its big guns for the first face-to-face debate on the merits of the deal and the implications for the free software community.
Since XFCE 4.4 will not no longer be able to advertise its low system requirements, I suppose we're entitled to expect more of it, right? There is an "official" Xfce Wish List, but here are my own annoyances with Xfce.
My friend and yours, AusImage, has tidied up the Ubuntu Open Week logs into this nice collection of formatted logs. There is some incredible content, help and tips in there about all aspects of contributing to Ubuntu.
As Ron Hovsepian approaches the six-month mark as Novell’s CEO, it’s difficult not to be impressed with his leadership of what had been a floundering, faltering fiasco under the stagnant watch of former CEO Jack Messman. And nowhere has that leadership been demonstrated more impressively than in the technology collaboration agreement Novell reached with Microsoft last month.

ICT Ministry announced here Saturday its support for Persian Linux Project. Emphasizing that many of the main services of the ICT are Linux-based, he reiterated, “That ministry is determined to migrate towards Linux.”
SCO Group shares plummeted by nearly 40 per cent to $1.20 on Friday after a judge upheld an earlier ruling throwing out most of the company's legal case against IBM.
A few years back I stumbled across Flightgear. It is a free flight simulator, and seems to offer a pretty compelling experience. Although it intrigued me, I had no interest in learning to fly, so it washed right over me. Well, recently, I have been considering learning to fly, so I started looking into Flightgear. You know, its a stunning project.
Next April, the Ubuntu Foundation will complete three years and six releases of its GNU/Linux distribution. It will also be the point at which the project begins to acquire a distinctly commercial hue.
For three months, Halamka ditched his Windows laptop. He replaced it first with a MacBook running OS X. Then he spent a month using a Lenovo ThinkPad X41 running a dual-boot configuration of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation and Red Hat Fedora Core. Finally, he took up a Dell D420 subnotebook running Microsoft's Windows XP. After evaluating all three to determine which worked best for him, he plans to begin testing his preferred setup with users, most of whose desktops currently run Windows.
A friend asked me a question yesterday that I couldn't answer, so I did some research to see if I could find one. The question was: In the Novell-Microsoft deal, what happens at the end of the 5-year term? If you as an individual programmer write code, contribute it, and it's covered by the patent agreement during the five years, what happens to it afterward? Is that contributed code still covered? Are you?
The long awaited update to pclos .93a has been a long time in the making, but today Texstar posted a bit of information to whet your appetite. Originally projected to be released around Christmas, no hint of a release date was given, but many components are in place and others are being worked on.

The Free Software Foundation acts as the benevolent force guiding the computer industry. It protects the users of software from the baddies, the list of which very often includes the names Microsoft, Apple, and TiVo. But what happens when the benevolent force transforms into something of a hypocrit?
