The Big Question is an initiative between Computer Weekly and recruitment consultancy PSD. Each week we put the Big Question to top IT professionals to get their take on a current talking point.
Traditionally banks and other financial institutions have been averse to adopting open source technology based projects for satisfying their requirement needs. Though there has been a shift in thinking in recent times, there are no major real life examples to cite. The main reason for this is the perception among banks that proprietary software provides increased security and support while open source systems are yet to be time tested.
After the success of last summer's bash, the founders of the geektastic* radio show LugRadio are holding another live event for the open source community.
Kent Police has cut the cost of running its major criminal investigations system by 90% using Novell Open Enterprise Server, the company's version of SuSE Linux.
The Portland Project has released a beta version of its programming interfaces for the Gnome and KDE Linux environments. This is designed to boost development of desktop Linux applications by creating common application programming interfaces (APIs) for developers to use.
Well from the last thing I wrote in here somewhere (being new means you have no idea where things are), things have changed on the laptop front. After writing some good things about Ubuntu I stumbled across some articles on Suse floating around the 'net and up pops the thought, "perhaps I didn't give it a proper go". Dangerous thought, very dangerous.
ZenLive is a Linux LiveCD based upon Zenwalk and it features their unique configuration tools, international translations, XFce window manager, and several other packages. With this being the first major release from the Zenwalk Linux LiveCD side, we have it covered with images today at Phoronix.
Chances are, you’ve been exposed to the hype surrounding Ubuntu as of late (and if you haven’t, you probably won’t find this entry very interesting), so I’m not going to add to that. We all know what Ubuntu is by now. But I have this to say: I just switched to Ubuntu on my main machine.
In a recent article, Linux Journal’s new Editor-in-Chief Nicholas Peterey built what he sees as the “Ultimate Do-It-Yourself Linux Box”. Being the first of his articles that I actually liked, he is way on the expensive side with his recommendations. We show here how to get along cheaper and still more modern.
Quetoo 0.4.0, a modifed version of Quake2, was announced yesterday and is available for download now. It's been a long but extremely productive development cycle.
Today, Fibre Channel is the dominant enterprise storage technology, but as with all technologies, eventually something better comes along. If you're lucky, that something is also less complex and less expensive. For storage, that something may be ATA over Ethernet (AoE), a simple and open network protocol that allows storage to be accessed over Ethernet. Here's how you can set up a test server to provide shared storage using AoE.
I am sure you have heard the popular saying - "A picture is worth a thousand words". It is always nice to have a medium to show people how a particular task is done. And instead of explaining it through words if we can show it in a dynamic form such as a video or a screencast, it will be better received.
Amateur filmmaker Solomon Rothman has released a full-length open source movie called 'Boy Who Never Slept.' The movie is unrated; it explores adult themes and contains graphic language and brief nudity.
Computer experts from the University of Cambridge claim not only to have breached the Great Firewall of China, but have found a way to use the firewall to launch denial-of-service attacks against specific Internet Protocol addresses in the country.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer just had a chat with Blake Ross of the Firefox team. But while it's a good read, the interview is short on future direction. Let's take a look at the published plans to see what's coming up in the next couple of major Firefox releases.
Doom 3 was highly anticipated, well reviewed, and then mysteriously to me, slated by your average gamer. I really enjoyed the game, and have spent two years wondering if actually, I was just an id fanboy, or if I did really like it.
When was the last time you backed up all your files? For most people the answer is probably a long time ago, if at all.
When I interviewed Richard Stallman back in 1999, he had some interesting thoughts on the subject of freedom: "I'm going to keep working on the free software movement, because I don't see who's going to replace me." Today, Stallman is becoming something of a political activist.
