Some musings on OpenSuse 10.3

Filed under
SUSE

joeblog.info: Naturally, I had to give it it try, even if only in VMWare. What follows is not a complete test, but only some impressions.

Quick Look at Ubuntu 7.10 Release Candidate

Filed under
Ubuntu
-s

Those that know me or my work in the Linux community know I always see the good in Linux distributions and open source software. I'm a "glass-is-half-full" kinda gal where Linux is concerned. But I'm having a hard time finding anything good at all to say about Ubuntu. Why the h-e-double_hockey_sticks is it so popular? It's the next thing to running nothing there is.

How to install Ubuntu Linux 7.04

Filed under
Ubuntu

computerworld.com.au: You can download a complete version of Ubuntu Linux from the Ubuntu website. The ISO (or CD) image is around 700MB. Two versions of Ubuntu are supported: 6.06 and 7.04 -- we're using 7.04 for this walkthrough. To follow suit, select Desktop Edition, Ubuntu 7.04.

A simple task manager for OpenOffice.org

Filed under
OOo

linux.com: If you spend most of your time in OpenOffice.org, you might want to be able to manage to-do lists and tasks without leaving the comfort of the office suite. Since Writer doesn't have such a feature, you can create your own no-frills task tool and at the same time sharpen your OOoBasic skills.

Fear and loathing at the command line

Filed under
Linux

Bruce Byfield: Long ago, I lost any queasiness about the command line. I’m not one of those who think it’s the only way to interact with their computers, but it’s a rare day that I don’t use it three or four times on my GNU/Linux system. To average users, the suggestion that they use the command line – or the shell, or the terminal, or whatever else you want to call it is only slightly less welcome than the suggestion that they go out and deliberately contract AIDS.

Kopete Roadmap rediscovered

Filed under
KDE

/home/liquidat: Some days ago I looked at the Kopete roadmap and saw that it was updated recently. It now states that full Decibel support won’t be there before KDE 4.2, but that Telepathy will be supported as a plugin in KDE 4.1. The most important news is that the new version Kopete 1.0 will not make it into KDE 4.0.

Should Open Source Fear Microsoft Patents?

Filed under
OSS

internetnews.com: So Microsoft is waving the patent stick. Again. Is there any substance to his latest claims about open source and Microsoft's patents? Somehow, that part got lost in the hyped-up coverage of his latest threats.

Zero to Z-Shell: Learn what all the fuss is about with Z-Shell

Filed under
HowTos

Red Hat Magazine: By and large, most Red Hat Linux systems will have Bash as the default shell. Bash is a darn great shell, but this article is about another equally great shell, called Z-Shell, that has most of the attributes of Bash, but in some cases goes the extra mile to give you the flexibility to customize your shell more than Bash allows.

openSUSE 10.3: why did Novell ever bother?

Filed under
SUSE

iTWire: Linux users don't accept criticism of their chosen distribution easily - that's probably why a number of reactions to my last piece about openSUSE tended to be somewhat short of making a point.
