Floss for economic health. That's the conclusion of a newly released European Commission study on the impact of Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (Floss) on the European IT sector.
In this interview with SearchOpenSource.com, Tom Carey, an attorney with Boston-based Bromberg & Sunstein LLP, waxes nostalgic on the SCO trial -- where it was, what lessons it has taught users of Linux and open source software, and what SCO's rumored bankruptcy could mean for the major players.
You think that you know every game that KDE ships? How about KNetWalk? It's a nice little game - not just for system administrators. The chance that you have it already installed is high, it's in the kdegames module!
We all know IDC is basically a known "propaganda mercenary" for Microsoft...But did you know they're incredibly "efficient" in producing studies?
Linspire CEO Kevin Carmony, who introduced Freespire -- a no-cost version of Linspire's Linux distribution -- in his keynote address at last year's Summit, gave DesktopLinux.com the scoop on what's happening with this year's event.
Ubuntu installs alsa-base and alsa-utils by default (as part of ubuntu-minimal), and provided you didn’t rip them out when you built your minimal system, you still have a nifty ncurses application for modifying sound settings: alsamixer.
Here is my run-down of Linux distros that I have tried to run on my PIII 600mhz/128mb laptop.
First try - Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy)
There`s not much to say about this choice.
I recently installed Ubuntu 6.10 on a new PC at work. In this post I will document all the steps I had to perform to get it ready for everyday use. Each step is assigned a level of difficulty, which I define below:
Webmin is a modular web-based administration tool that works on a wide variety of Linux versions and other Unix and Unix-like operating systems. It enables you to log in via a web page and perform administration tasks. Webmin then “does the right thing” and makes the necessary appropriate changes to configuration files.
Major corporate houses choose open source partly due to the economic gains and mainly due to the control the open source system gives to their hands.
If you’ve ever had to modify files on your Linux system and simply change a word or two, there’s a fast and simple way to do this using sed.
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we meet a developer who has unfinished business with midges, someone who prefers bullets to stars -- tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Daniel Molkentin.

As some of you know, I own and operate mypclinuxos.com, which is a community projects website for PCLinuxOS. What some of you may not know is that PCLinuxOS held an official contest earlier last summer to select a new logo.
Sun's Project Looking Glass is a 3-D desktop environment for Linux, Windows, and Solaris. If you are interested in seeing what it offers but are not ready to install the packages directly on your system, you can still get a feel for the avant-garde interface with the just-released LG3D-LiveCD 3.0.
As Opera users we owe a lot of credit to Firefox for successfully bringing more awareness to alternative browsers. We benefited a great deal from it by having less compatibility issues with broken webpages. Hopefully this interview will show the best of what our communities have to offer. I’d like to personally ask to keep the trolling away – let’s set an example here.
Eqonomize! is a personal accounting software, with focus on efficiency and ease of use for the small household economy. Eqonomize! provides a complete solution, with bookkeeping by double entry and support for scheduled recurring transactions, security investments, and budgeting.
Each hard disk that you use in a Linux system will have a number of partitions on it (except in the rather rare cases when we write to raw disk devices).
FireFTP is probably one of the coolest plugins for Firefox I’ve ever seen. I’ve never liked gFTP; I find it slow, clunky and counterintuitive. Since I use Firefox at home and at work, the FireFTP extension is an absolute godsend.
Localizing an application can be planned, or it can happen as a rushed afterthought. Discover techniques and tools such as gettext, XML, XSLT, and design patterns that can help when retrofitting localization into a mature product or planning for localization up front.
For independent software vendors (ISV), one of the major problems in supporting GNU/Linux is the variety of package management systems. However, if the Free Standards Group has its way, the next version of the Linux Standard Base (LSB) will solve that problem by providing an application programming interface (API) that acts as a bridge between the major package systems and software installers. Ian Murdock, CTO of the Free Standards Group, says the solution could be included in the most widely used distributions by early 2008.
