Well Linux campers, it's early January, which must mean it's time for that annual orgy of consumer techno-porn called the Consumer Electronics Show. As well as hunting for Linux among the set-tops, I'll also try to give you my own unique and twisted spin on the madness that descends on Vegas during CES.
Recently, some of our users have asked why we chose to disclose a potential security issue only after the release of Opera 9.10. Let me try to give a short overview on how security issues get reported and disclosed - and not only at Opera, but in most applications: it might help some people to understand how this works.
The creator of the burgeoning 3D virtual world expects it to grow even faster with outside programming help, David Kirkpatrick reports in a Fortune exclusive.
The recent release of Windows Vista poses the question of whether it's time to buy a new computer. On the other hand, Novell sells Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop that requires only a 500 MHZ processor and 250MB of memory.
The European Union has blamed a translation mistake for its claim that it cannot legally support Linux.
One of my favorite open source applications is Amarok, a music player with an intuitive interface that makes boring tasks such as organizing large music collections less troublesome. The only problem with Amarok is that it's a KDE application and I'm a GNOME user. I've found a good alternative in Exaile, my new favorite media player for Linux.
LinuxGamePublishing (LGP) founder Michael Simms, announced today their newest title: Egosofts' X3: Reunion.
I was thinking about the future of Linux when it occurred to me that one path for its future can seen as a simple consequence of what we mean by "winning." In other words, asking whether Linux will still be a winner in ten years leads first to the question of what we mean by "winner" and then to an answer about where Linux is going.
I was helping my brother update his Ubuntu machine and was getting tired of seeing the estimated download time hover around 18hrs! It was about that time that I got to thinking… “my laptop is up to date. There should be a way for him to simply download the updates from my machine over the LAN.”
As you read this, countless programmers worldwide are collaborating to write, refine, and debug open-source software. Open-source pioneer Richard Stallman estimates that a million programmers now contribute to these efforts. Once a fringe phenomenon, the practice has grown into a major force in software development.
One of the greatest opportunities available to Web-based communities is the ability to share information. All you really need is a set of guidelines for how that information is to be presented, and once you have that, the rest is easy. So easy in fact that it is now possible for you to include news and articles of interest on your site from many well-known sources with just a few clicks.
What if Microsoft decided against paying for studies to prove how much better Windows is than Unix or GNU/Linux? What if they got away from all of the FUD and misinformation about GNU/Linux? What if they decided they would make an operating system that was not vulnerable to viruses, trojan horses and all other internet unpleasantries?
Every year we hear predictions that this year, Linux will make it big. From its growth as a workhorse server operating system to its inroads into the desktop space, Linux always seems however to be forever the teenager that never grows up. Will this year be different?
I was reading an article at Linux Today earlier and saw this line from the article, which was penned in defense of Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols (and rightly so...I have no idea why people would call SJVN a shill...he's the farthest thing from it). I'm not so much concerned with people attacking SJVN so much as I am with the editor's (it's an editor's note) second item that he's bugged by:
There is much anticipation for KDE 4 as has been seen from the amount of comments to the article published from Andrea with respect to the innovations included in the future desktop environment. In order to find out more, we have interviewed Aaron Seigo, KDE developer. Good reading!
For only being a release candidate the Linux 2.6.20 kernel has already generated quite a bit of attention. On top of adding asynchronous SCSI scanning, multi-threaded USB probing, and many driver updates, the Linux 2.6.20 kernel will include a full virtualization solution. In this article we are offering a brief overview of the Kernel-based Virtual Machine for Linux as well as offering up in-house performance numbers as we compare KVM to other virtualization solutions such as QEMU Accelerator and Xen.
If you’ve been around Ubuntu for a year or so, you might recognize that as the default desktop for Breezy Badger Xubuntu version 5.10, released in November of 2005. Now fast-forward to 2007. The Gnomification rolls onward, and the weight of Xubuntu grows with each revolution.
