greatsouthernlad: Funny thing happened today. I thought it would be great to listen to a little Australian Rules Football. About half way through my Mini mac dramas, I wonder whether my Ubuntu (Feisty) installation on my laptop would fair any better.
linuxdevices: Palm's Linux-powered Foleo has potential, but only if Palm can stop denying that the device is actually laptop, reckons Sascha Segan of Gearlog. Palm has positioned the Foleo as a "mobile companion" for itinerant workers needing only email, document prep, and PowerPoint capabilities.
kdedevelopers: The akonadi provider relies on the OpenChange libraries, which in turn rely on Samba 4. The problem is that GPLv2 and GPLv3 are not compatible. My code is fine - it is "GPLv2 or later". The incompatibility is that Qt is released under GPLv2 (not "or later").
adamw: Mandriva recently completed its participation in the KDE aKademy 2007 conference, sponsoring the event, presenting various technologies, and providing Mandriva Flash keys to developers attending the conference. Today Mandriva announces a similar program for the GNOME conference, GUADEC 2007, which is taking place in Birmingham from July 15th to July 21st.
Red Hat Mag: This is actually the second summer we’ve run Red Hat High. We learned a lot of lessons in our first year. The biggest lesson: We’re a technology company, not a summer camp company.
The Open Source Advocate: If Ubuntu wants to be taken seriously in the workplace, it needs a secure remote desktop. Many people have a need to connect to their work computer from home using remote desktop technology.
MozillaLinks: All European countries saw an increase in Firefox participation with Hungary showing the most dramatic increase from 27.2%, in the latest March 2007 survey, to 39.7%. Overall, Europe grew from 24.1% to 27.8%.
Motho ke motho ka botho: One thing I forgot to mention about my thus-far-successful adventure tuning my coworker’s VAIO … Xubuntu ran awfully slow on that machine. The live CD was so sluggish as to be unusable. It was PUD/GNU Linux that saved the day.
Matt Asay: One week after Palamida reported a rather sluggish start to GPLv3 adoption, we're up 41% and growing quickly. This could represent 10% of all active open source projets.
Most Photoshop techniques make heavy use of "layer effects" when it comes to creating glassy buttons. I modified one of those techniques so that it could be applied to the Gimp environment that lacks this feature. The following tutorial shows you how to create a glassy button in 5 easy steps.
Linux Today: For the past couple of weeks, I have been more than a little pensive about the nature of the new GNU General Public License (v3). Lately, certain events have made me stop and see the problem more from the side of the free/open source software developers.
linux.com: A group of developers from free software digital video recorder (DVR) related projects announced the first step towards a solution for obtaining free television listing information this week. The search for such a free guide data source has been on since June, when Zap2it Labs announced it would shut down its free, XML-based service.
linux-watch: So, you want a job in Linux do you? Well then get your tickets for San Francisco to see Dice's free Technology and Engineering career fair at LinuxWorld Conference & Expo taking place on Aug. 8 from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Today it is exactly three years ago since PHP 5 has been released. The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only.
the jem report: The big news in the Linux realm for the past few months has been Dell's introduction of Ubuntu-preinstalled computers. The systems themselves are a little low on the quality scale, but so is everything else that Dell makes these days. At least they aren't expensive.
phoronix: This week Sun's Glynn Foster had two presentations on Project Indiana in Australia and Ireland. In the talks Glynn had went over the basic information on what Project Indiana is about as well as sharing other details and listening to feedback from the audience. These slides are now published on the Internet, some of which we will be sharing in this article as well as talking about some of the points.
Rob Enderle: This time of year, I make my rounds with the OEMs and get to chat with a number of executives. Several things have floated to the top, but the one I’d like to chat about right now is the comment that Linux demand and interest in open source in general has dropped off sharply.
informationweek.com/blog: I've been trying to make sense out of the new Version 3 of the General Public License and I've got to tell you, I can't yet. All I can see is that (1) in the short term, the GPLv3 has turned Microsoft's deal with Novell into a hairball Redmond is trying to cough up;
ars technica: The One Laptop Per Child Project and Intel have put their differences aside, at least for now, as Intel agrees to take a seat on the OLPC Board of Directors. The new "peace" between Intel and OLPC will also involve the project receiving some funding from Intel.
