As I'm sure you read, Novell offered a test drive of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 release candidate 3 (announcement). As my interest in all things SUSE never wanes, I downloaded the 5 cds right away. They came in rather quickly, although I overlooked the md5sum file. Upon returning today for said file, it appears they've begun to require registration to download the preview. I'm not sure why they now want this information, but I suspect they see these testers as possible future customers. They didn't lose out on me as I have no intention of buying. Not that it's not worth it to the right people, I'd just go for the opensuse version myself. However, to the new office setup or businesses wanting to change, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 may be just what the IT doctor ordered.

I was just told a good-news story about a Toronto area high school computer science teacher who has been using the Linux operating system exclusively in his classroom for the past 5 years. The bad-news part of the story is that the school recently dismantled the already running Linux lab and told the teacher that he *must* only teach Microsoft software.
Yes, I know you're sick of hearing about Ubuntu. Ubuntu this, Ubuntu that, everyone must love Ubuntu or else. Don't run away screaming just yet, because there are good reasons for all the Ubuntu buzz.
Question: Just how many PCs do you use during any given day? More importantly, do you struggle with keeping a handle on which files are up to date and where? If you work on your PC outside of the hobbyist world, then chances are you are in the "resounding yes" category with the rest of us - welcome to the club.
I had heard about the latest Gartner report claiming that Microsoft Windows will become the dominant platform for "Open Source" (and free) software in the future. While there are certainly a number of reasons why some FOSS has and will continue to be written that also runs under Microsoft Windows, I think the fundamental premise is wrong.
Linux has once again dominated the list of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. The 27th issue of the bi-annual Top500 list, released today, shows Linux accounting for 73.4% of the top 500 supercomputers, including the two fastest machines on the planet.
For open source to prosper, people need to stop thinking of it as "free" and instead think of it as "connected capitalism", delegates at an open source conference in London were told on Tuesday.
LINKSYS REVOLUTIONISED the Wi-Fi world with its open, Linux-based hardware, which sparked several alternative firmware versions. One, from a Brazilian company dubbed Italbrasnet, brings enhanced firmware to low-cost wireless routers using the inexpensive Realtek chipsets.
A new study by code analysis firm Klocwork has discovered new flaws in open source programs that previous scans by a Department of Homeland Security-sponsored study did not.
Open source business intelligence architecture strengthened with new analysis product and enhanced server capabilities
At one level, the open-source revolution has been won. When you use a Nokia phone, trade on eBay or do a Google search you're using open-source technology. But can open source also render New Zealand firms more profitable?
The impending release of Windows Vista with its fancy Aero Glass special effects, along with the hasty addition of the similar XGL and Compiz technologies to the latest SUSE Linux release makes me think that programmers have a warped idea of what desktop computing is about.
Free software campaigner Richard Stallman said French youth should protest against a draft law on copyright that will be voted on Friday.
Warren Woodford, the founder of the MEPIS distribution, would prefer to be concentrating on polishing his latest release. Instead, he is distracted by an official notice from the Free Software Foundation that, because MEPIS has not previously supplied source code for the packages already available.

Thin client software company 2X has come up with a novel way to get Windows applications running on Linux desktops – stream it from a Windows box.
Ferrari's name is name soaked in history, and is redolent of everything concerned with sports cars and motor racing. And with today's motor racing as much about data acquisition and processing as it is about spanners and oil, Ferrari's focus on keeping its data centre cool is keen.
