This tutorial shows how to install the Flash player on a Linux system. It was tested on Dapper Drake (on an x86 - 32 bit machine).
It looks like Microsoft has accidentally leaked some details of the price of its next-generation operating system. At least for customers who live in the Great Frozen North.

Instalinux.com is a handy Web site from which users can create customized installation images for a handful of different Linux distributions.
LixSystems has introduced a low-cost Linux powered home theater PC (HTPC) packaged in a compact, consumer electronics-style enclosure. The Lx8100-MN, available "barebones" (sans CPU, memory, and hard drive) for around $300, offers quiet operation and is supplied with an easily-installed Fedora 5-based system image on DVD.
When Linux was in its infancy, hardware support was one of the biggest issues for the open source operating system. Broader support these days by major PC hardware and peripheral manufactures has made the Linux hardware compatibility more widespread, but no one's claming "mission accomplished" on this yet.
The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project reported Aug. 27 that Brazil is finalizing plans for "all aspects" of its $100 laptop roll-out. Along with Argentina, Nigeria, and Thailand, Brazil had previously indicated interest in purchasing 1 million of the machines for needy children.

More than two years have passed since PalmSource released an update to the venerable operating system. But the next version, which is set for release next year, will be very different under the hood. Access is betting that the Palm community could use a little push from a penguin.

One of the unofficial Debian project resources which doesn't get the attention it deserves is the Debian Snapshot site. The site contains a mirror of old Debian packages, which can be very useful for system recovery.
YaST2-GTK is an effort to develop a GTK+ interface module for Suse's setup tool YaST that started from Michael Meeks base code and was a Google's Summer of Code project assigned to Ricardo Cruz. We will be working to get it shinning for the next Suse version.
I recently downloaded the latest offering of Debian which goes in the garb of Debian Etch Beta 3. Debian provides a net install CD image roughly around 140 MB size and is the preferred option for people who have a very fast Internet connection. And it is possible to install the distribution entirely via the net. I was ready to install Debian on my machine.
These days it seems like every time Google slaps its logo on a technology, the earth trembles. The company makes no secret of its interest in developing a suite of office productivity tools.

Recently I wanted to make sure I had enough space to back up my home digital videos and pictures, so I purchased a new hard drive to add to my home Linux server. I moved all the files I wanted to save onto a single hard drive and repartitioned the old hard drive so I could upgrade to a newer version of Linux. Because I had done such a poor job of retaining backups on external media, I did not have any backups of my pictures and videos. After the overwhelming feeling of dread passed, I started to look into file recovery options.
Red Hat has matured to the point where it finds itself seeding other companies with execs from within its ranks. One recent startup counts a quarter of its employees as former Red Hat staff. RPath lets independent software vendors bundle their applications with Linux in preconfigured packages that optimize the operations of the applications.
What Linux lacks, besides many high-quality games, is a tool to capture those and save as video. The yukon framework OTOH was designed from the beginning on to capture games.
