eWeek: Open source is truly the best way to unlock the value of information technology, Michael Tiemann, president of the Open Source Initiative, said at the annual Gartner Open Source Summit here Sept. 20.
gh-linux.blogspot: Now, I think a few of the "7 reasons" are bogus and irrelevent but a few are close to correct. And, the premise that this is not the Year of the Linux Desktop, and that next year is probably not the Year of the Linux Desktop is valid.
linux.com: Nowadays, many machines are running with 2-4 gigabytes of RAM, and their owners are discovering a problem: When they run 32-bit GNU/Linux distributions, their extra RAM is not being used. Fortunately, correcting the problem is only a matter of installing or building a kernel with a few specific parameters enabled or disabled.
c|net blogs: If you've been following the current rift in the Linux community between Linus Torvalds and his minions squaring off against Con Kolivas and the mainstream Linux fanatics, you probably know that it's getting quite heated.
iTWire: A Harvest Moon is a full Moon that appears closest to the autumnal equinox, which occurs in 2007 on September 23 in the northern hemisphere. The name “Harvest Moon” is named so because farmers are able to work later at night “harvesting” their crops due to the reflected light coming off of the full Moon.
raiden's realm: Welcome to part 2 of our series on the Applets of KDE. So let's continue to look at what's available in KDE.
opensuse news: Today you can read which answers to the ‘People of openSUSE’ questions the AppArmor developer Seth Arnold provides. Immunix was acquired by Novell just over two years ago, and since then I’ve been working to help improve AppArmor for wider use — we would like AppArmor to be included in the mainline Linux kernel, so that more people could enjoy the benefits of easy mandatory access control.
adamw: Mandriva Linux 2008 RC2 ‘Kepler’ was released today. New features since the release of RC1 include the final release of GNOME 2.20, the inclusion of the new 8.41.7 version of ATI’s proprietary driver in the non-free repository to support Radeon HD cards, significant kernel updates that improve support for certain ATA controllers and many audio chipsets, some new features in the urpmi and rpmdrake package management tools.
When will they improve? Its long been the case, the Linux, has offered, a decent round up of 64bit distros, most of the big players offer one, Fedora, Suse, Ubuntu, Debian (I know its essentially the same thing), Gentoo.. I feel not enough is being done with these 64bit variants, in what is becoming a very big market.
Linux Journal: Things have been going pretty well for open source and open standards recently. First, there was the implosion of the SCO case. Then we had the rejection of Microsoft's request for a fast-track approval of its OOXML rival to ODF. Finally, the European Court of First Instance has refused Microsoft's request for an annulment of the terms imposed by the European Commission. Open source and open standards have made huge strides, but in other areas - open access and open data, for example - the fight is only beginning.
eWeek: There are unlikely to be any new applications developed solely for Unix after 2009, George Weiss, a Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst, told attendees at Gartner's annual Open Source Summit here Sept. 20. Linux is now "good enough" for some 80 percent of the applications and environments that exist today.
Mandriva PR: With this new release, Mandriva is upgrading its commercial offer around a single unified product: Mandriva Linux Powerpack. Mandriva Linux Powerpack 2008 unifies the former Discovery and Powerpack+ editions. Mandriva Linux 2008 will also be available for download free-of-charge as a single live/install CD.
ZDNet: He wasn't one who went with the flow, and was widely regarded as an outspoken advocate of the open source movement in Singapore. Cheok Beng Teck, CIO of the country's Ministry of Defense (Mindef), chartered the way that saw the government body embrace--almost unabashedly--an open source strategy that few in the public sector would have been as comfortable adopting.
ITweek: Recently we have concentrated on the desktop aspects of Linux, particularly on the Ubuntu Linux distributions. This time we will move away from the desktop and instead take a look at the shell environment, which needlessly terrorises many newcomers to Linux and Unix.
bheekly.blogspot.com: I had always looked at Ubuntu's 'Add/Remove Programs' app (gnome-app-install) and wondered whether it would ever become cross-platform and bring its unique simplicity to other desktops. Then, a few days ago, I came across PackageKit on #gnome-journal. At first I could not believe what I was reading, the cross-platform application installer I had always fantasized of was here at last! Over time, my enthusiasm faded.
kmandla.wordpress.com: I snagged the AntiX ISO after a comment left elsewhere here, and while I’m not a big Fluxbox fan, I find this to be one of the most pleasant setups I’ve seen yet.
linux.com: When I began my career as an assistant architect 12 years ago, I used AutoCAD R12, 3D Studio, CorelDraw 6.0, and Photoshop 4.0 for architectural drawing and 3-D modeling. Today, many architects still use their later versions, but those bulky packages provide many functions an architect will never use. Luckily, there are several open source alternatives.
watching the net: If you have been using Ubuntu, which uses Gnome as the default desktop, or Kubuntu which uses KDE as the desktop, and have been wondering what the other desktop looks like, you can easily install KDE or Gnome and switch back and forth before logging on to Ubuntu.
linuxplanet: With open source software becoming a household name, another open source movement that may one day see some fanfare is already taking shape. Open source hardware, which I once thought to be little more than a pipe dream left over from a bygone era, is proving to be a dream that it is very much alive and growing.
linux online: Walter Mossberg, an influential tech columnist who writes primarily for the Wall Street Journal, wrote a piece the other day in which he said that Linux still wasn't ready for mainstream users. Linux enthusiasts like myself see a piece like this from such a high-profile columnist as a tremendous setback for our work.
