Safari's Web browser marketshare dipped slightly in March while Firefox showed a gain. Microsoft's Internet Explorer continues the downward slide it started a year ago, according to data from Market Share.

With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn happening in just a matter of days, last month at Phoronix we had presented The Visual History of Ubuntu. In that article we went back and looked at all Ubuntu releases to date to see how it has evolved over time both when it comes to the interface as well as the changes that had made up each release.
Remember Mandriva? I did a review on it a while back, saying that it was best suited for newbies with well-paid administrators. Well, here's what I overlooked:
Linux will never take over the desktop market because it doesn’t have enough games. People might use Linux for normal day-to-day tasks, but not for gaming.
Sure, there are some Linux games, but nothing good. It’s like, maybe Pong with console graphics and stuff.
Or that awful interface — what’s that called? GTK or something? And every game needs a CS degree to install.
Linux is “Free” in two senses. In one sense, the Linux consumer is free to modify the system and do anything he or she wishes with it. In another sense, acquiring Linux does not necessarily require any cash outlay at all.
SpreadFirefox has announced a new Digg-like site specifically for Mozilla news. The site is called FoxieWire and uses the Pligg software as the foundation to handle the user voting. Here is what SpreadFirefox had to say about the launch:
Because of a recent change in TCP window scale settings in Linux 2.6.17 kernel and higher, you may have had some problems connecting to certain Web sites. In this tip, I'll show you a workaround for the time-out problem, but first, let me give you the background on this issue.
I've used quite a few linux distros in my time. Recently it occurred to me what they would look like if they were beautiful, attractive women. I think perhaps I've spent too much time on the computer, eh? Anyway, I've made a list. Tell me what you think!
If Linux Distros were women:
Suppose you want to let a friend thousands of miles away listen to a song from your computer. Perhaps you just want to open up the music library on your computer to a select few while you're on another client on your local area network. Enabling file sharing might be overkill. Instead, you can use a streaming server such as GNUMP3d.
I had written in my engagement with Ubuntu that I had some key audio requirements and I wondered how they will fare. The first problem with Ubuntu is that the system throws audio players at you willy nilly so that it is hard to sift through them all.Some are simple, crude, with bells and whistles and others are without this all.
Free software for mastering DVDs is starting to catch up with some of the commercial software in this genre. Command line tools have been available for some time, but GUI based tools have just started to become usable. One such GUI is DVDStyler.
I am often asked about the Mandriva business model. So here is a quick summary of the key points:
1. we’re open source
2. we’re a product company
3. we’re publicly traded
4. we address both the consumer market and the corporate market
5. we address the consumer market through multiple channels
6. we have a network of partner/distributors
Welcome to the Kubuntu desktop customization guide where you will learn how to bring your KDE desktop to life! In other words, how to get from:
Don’t panic if you love the endless flexibility of Konqueror - it isn’t going away in KDE 4, it just won’t be the default. Today I downloaded Dolphin and decided to give it a try, spent around 15 minutes and I can say that I am staying with Konqueror.
There are many different ways to login to a Linux computer. Most of them are text based and other graphical ones are slow and create lots of network traffic. To the windows click and pointy types the text based login's are a real pain and the other graphical types are murder over a slow connection.
Your editor's exploration of high dynamic range (HDR) techniques inspired one comment suggesting that photographic topics should be avoided in the future if your editor wishes to avoid looking foolish.
A while back I got a new Lenovo T60 Thinkpad. Of course it can pre-installed with WinXP taking up all of the harddrive except for the 4gb hidden recovery partition.
So, not exactly a planned thing… My new(ish) laptop started having problems a few weeks back and being the lazy procrastinating ass I am, I’ve been using a gifted ThinkPad T40 that I was using to test OpenSUSE 10.2…
The first few days drove me nuts.
Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distro whose goal in life, per its website, "is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution." The developers have released both GNOME-based and KDE-based versions in the past, and their latest version, v2.2 "Bianca," is already final in its GNOME incarnation.
