Kaj Arno, MySQL VP of community relations, quietly revealed on his blog before Christmas that MySQL has changed its license to "GPL2 Only." This does not mean, however, that the MySQL AB, the well-known open-source DBMS (database management system) vendor, is sticking to the GPLv2 forever.
With the great deal of articles that we publish in regards to NVIDIA and ATI display drivers, it is very evident that at this time NVIDIA has the lead when it comes to the frame-rate performance. One of the areas that often is not mentioned in Phoronix articles is the image quality between ATI and NVIDIA's hardware with their respective drivers. In this article today we will be looking at both company's image quality under Linux in video playback and gaming environments.
The basic idea behind Mac OS X's Dock is that when you need an application, you click on its icon on an on-screen bar, and the application is launched (if it has not been yet) or switched to (if it has). Stefano Zingarini has borrowed this concept for KXDocker, a KDE variation of OS X's Dock (which is also usable with GNOME and other desktop environments).
Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on a Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop.
KDE has this thing where you can select which operating system you wish to reboot into. When logging out there is a drop-down labeled "Restart Computer". Click and hold this and you'll see a list of options for rebooting, depending on your Grub/Lilo configuration.

A couple weeks back I asked a friend, Song Kewei at the OSS Promotion Union , to tell me who he thought the top 10 Open Source professionals in China were. He gave me a list, which I will keep confidential, and from this list I hope to begin giving readers an idea of what type of people are the champions of the Open Source Community in China.
Computer companies have just six days to offer price quotes to the U.S. Air Force for a multiprocessor computational cluster for running serial and parallel jobs.
I came across this entry on the Lobby4Linux blog. I don't know who writes th blog, or even if she/he is credible, but I found some of the comments interesting. Interesting and a bit worrisome. Worrisome because they paint Microsoft as it should be acting, and not as the backslapping Boy Scout that it has recently painted itself as.
Novell today announced its SUSE® Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 has earned a 2007 InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award, being named "Best Linux Desktop."
This tutorial shows how to create a Debian/Ubuntu mirror for your local network with the tool apt-mirror. Having a local Debian/Ubuntu mirror is good if you have to install multiple systems in your local network because then all needed packages can be downloaded over the fast LAN connection, thus saving your internet bandwidth.
Lately, I've been pining for the simplicity of a text email client. Though Sylpheed has been a reliable workhorse, I decided to survey today's text email clients to see if I should go back to reading email in an xterm. I tested Pine, Cone, Mutt, and nmh to see if any of them were up to the task. For my use, Mutt came out on top, but Pine is also a reasonable alternative if you don't mind the licensing.
Adobe Acrobat was the first software to support Adobe Systems’ Portable Document Format (PDF). It is a family of software, some commercial and some free of charge. The Adobe Acrobat Reader program (now just called Adobe Reader) is available as a no-charge download from Adobe’s web site, and allows the viewing and printing of PDF files.
If you’ve read any of my previous posts you know they all take advantage of APT to install or upgrade packages. If you’ve spent more than a few hours using Ubuntu you’ve probably taken advantage of APT. Anytime you add, remove or upgrade part of your system you’re using APT. I thought I would take a minute today to explain a few more features of APT that you might not be familiar with.
This is a very easy to use, yet very useful software for creating graphical documents for children. The user interface is designed for intuitive use by children as young as three to five years.
I want to tell you a little story. One that involves: love, greed, selfishness, guilt, shame and finally—confession. A torrid little story this is. It revolves around a geek and his love for free software. Not just free as in freedom, we’re talking free as in “keep my cash in my wallet” free! I’ll be playing the part of the geek, Ubuntu will play the part of free software.
At the end of last year, on the first day of my vacation, I moved my IBM T41 from Fedora Core 6 to openSUSE 10.2 . I was at home, and on vacation at the time, so the one thing I could not really test was how well the openSUSE default install of Evolution 2.8.2 works. No MS Exchange server at the house and all. I had to wait to return to the office.
Sometimes you find yourself wondering why certain features are added to specific software. Take Firefox and Open Office as one such example. Both have a back-up feature that will give you an opportunity to recover from a computer crash, thus making sure any data loss is kept to a minimum.
