Dell said that they'll soon start offering Linux on desktop and notebook systems. My recent experience with Linux on Dell notebooks has been interesting.
I had an older Dell laptop laying around for more than year. It had a failed power charging board in it (the board that handles both AC and DC power), which failed in one of those classic "I shouldn't have done that" moments...
Maybe it's just me, but I believe Ubuntu and Canonical have a severe case of the Not Invented Here. Instead of building on one of the three most suitable distributions at the time (each with advantages, disadvantages and often trade-offs): Debian, and Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrake Linux) and MEPIS, they have forked Debian, and created an improved but incompatible version.
Mandriva, the France-based Linux distributor, will have a version of its Mandriva Linux 2007 pre-installed on Intel's new low-end laptop for students, the Classmate PC.
According to Intel, the ClassMatePC is a rugged laptop with a water-resistant keyboard and a theft-control feature based on a network-issued digital certificate. Its processor is an Intel Mobile 900MHz Celeron ULV chip.
The recently released DragonFly BSD 1.8.1-REL incited me top give it a very quick try. I always loved their logo and I was curios about how can act an OS forked from FreeBSD 4.8 — see Wikipedia for a short history of the DragonFly.
This short guide describes how you can configure your GNOME desktop so that you can open files and directories with a single mouseclick instead of a double click. This is helpful if you switch from Windows to Linux and used to open files and directories with a single click on your Windows desktop, too.
PengYou is a promising Java-based client/server document management solution and versioning tool for individual users and small workgroups of up to 10 users. In its current version -- a very early stage of development -- PengYou offers only bare-bones functionality, but the developers have all the basics right.
I love Mozilla and Google products, and I use them every single day; however, the ongoing discussions about how they should create more of a presence in the operating system world has baffled me.
A couple of weeks back, I was greeted by the news of a very interesting project having been moved to KDE base. The project in question is a file manager named Dolphin. What is unique about this file manager is that it is light weight, is simple to navigate without overwhelming the Computer neophytes but at the same time does not sacrifice much functionality.
I have been neglecting the BSD line of operating systems lately, but a new release of DragonFlyBSD has come out and I figured this would be a good opportunity to try it out. I have never used DragonFly, but I used to use FreeBSD extensively (I still have it running a few servers) and I’ve also used OpenBSD and NetBSD in the day.
What is DragonFlyBSD?
1: Your purpose
I found something this evening in passing that I wanted to pass on to the rest of you. It’s a small fix that will allow the Cube to function properly with the current setup of Feisty and the desktop effects. Currently you can get the wobbly windows but no Cube.
In any event, try the tip below to get the Cube to function if you’d like to stick with Compiz (vs Beryl).
DELL currently offers Linux as an option for certain laptop and desktop models. Talk is that this service may be expanded to all models. This is a good thing, of course. Results of a recent survey by DELL show that more than 70% of over 100.000 respondents want to use Linux for home and office! What has been keeping companies like DELL away from this?
The OpenOffice.org community today announced version 2.2 of the popular open source office suite, a release it hopes will make further inroads into the Microsoft Office user base.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Mandriva Free 2007 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
MEPIS is pleased to announce its new Community site at www.mepis.org/community. This new site will provide a better way for the MEPIS community to interact with each other, while making it easier for users to find helpful information.
This is my first installation of Ulteo, the Debian (ubuntu) based Linux created by Gael Duval.
I will continue experimenting with it, and see how it performs with WiFi in a laptop, an IBM T30 is the only one I have.
Fedora is often called a non-community distribution because it is heavily supported by Red Hat and Red Hat has Veto rights in the board. Also, together with claims that Ubuntu is no Community distribution either it raises the question who and what defines the word community in this regard.
We are here today to talk about the developers of the KDE-Edu Project. The purpose of this interview is to feature and present their work and motivation, which is often not as well-known or regarded as other, more prominent work within the KDE project.
In the same way I revisited PCLinuxOS2007 beta 2 recently using my new methods of reviewing distros I'm returning to this Alpha 5 release of Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.
