While most tasks can be conveniently accomplished using the graphical user interfaces of the Linux desktop, experienced users often find it more efficient to go back to the "command line". Unfortunately, the default terminal windows are usually set to a boring black on white or white on black. But this can be easily changed to look much cooler.
With new versions of two of the most popular Web browsers coming out at nearly the same time, we examined both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.0, keeping a keen eye out for functionality and aesthetic improvements over prior versions.
Taking a trip into space hasn’t been Mark Shuttleworth’s biggest challenge. Instead the one-time space tourist counts building an open-source company and working to hook users on the Linux as his most testing venture. Mr. Shuttleworth spoke with Red Herring about recent developments in the world of open source and his plans for Ubuntu.
Open source came out on strong in 2006. Open-source advocates are promising more to come in 2008. Here are some of the predictions open-source experts are making for the coming year.
I've seen spreadsheets that are basically interactive tutorials, and many more loaded with what Edward Tufte refers to as "chartjunk" -- embellishments that do nothing to make the presentation of information more effective. Yet, generally, spreadsheets are treated pragmatically. Certainly, few people worry about their layout than the layout of text documents. Still, even if you share this attitude, learning the basic formatting options for cells in OpenOffice.org Calc can be worth your time.
I finally got some time to write about Sun’s Project Looking Glass. You might have read my earlier article about installing Project Looking Glass on Ubuntu. Once installed, it creates an option in the login window as a session.
The French space agency is to publish its archive of UFO sightings and other phenomena online, but will keep the names of those who reported them off the site to protect them from pestering by space fanatics.
I want to write about my first 12 hours on Ubuntu Linux. I’m not what you might consider a “power user.” I don’t run my own server, I’m not at all good with running command lines or terminals. I grew up Windows, I know Windows and switching to Linux has pushed my brain farther than I thought it would ever have to go. It has been a great experience. Here are some things that I’ve noted are significantly different and, in my humble opinion better, than Windows.
Today, David has brought his Wiimote at Mandriva office so that we make some experiments with the Wiimote linux drivers. I've started with WMD, which is a python program that can generate input events based on the info sent by the Wiimote (on Bluetooth).
Ever since Linux came out of the shadow and made the front cover in most computing magazines as the next big thing all of it’s fans wait for the day that it’s market share will grow and “eat” Microsoft windows.
After several days of effort, Linus Torvalds tracked down and posted a patch for a low level data corruption bug. In a series of emails, Linus thoroughly explained the thought process involved in isolating the exact problem. Linus posted the fix in a followup email.
The latest reports say that a dude who goes under the name, "MysVidel" has managed to get the Linux operating system up and alive on Microsoft's Zune.
Open Source software (OSS) may be gaining popularity in the Philippines, but many small business owners are still unaware of how this technology can impact and improve their businesses.

Find out how to use application programming interfaces (APIs) when writing your own custom Kerberos-based authentication applications. In this article, you'll examine different Kerberos credential cache name formats that AIX NFS V4 supports and are required for authentication purposes. You'll also look at different methods of obtaining the Kerberos credential.
While 64-bit support is now considered common for both Intel and AMD processors, many Linux (as well as Windows) users are uncertain whether to use a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system with there being advantages for both paths. In this article, we will be comparing the i386 and x86_64 performance with Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft and Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Herd 1 to see how the numbers truly stack up.
Seems many bloggers woke up this morning to find Microsoft has left a laptop in their stocking. There is a minor hullabaloo rippling through Blogistan about it. Amongst others, Joel Spolsky of "Joel on Software" got one. This time, I'm not even linking to the original story; if you haven't heard about it by now, you don't care anyway.
A problem with Google Inc.'s free e-mail service that has users increasingly reporting that their data and accounts are being irretrievably deleted is an isolated one, the internet search giant says.
At the start of 2006, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) was largely inward-looking, focused on the GNU Project and high-level strategic concerns such as licensing. Now, without abandoning these issues, the FSF had transformed into an openly activist organization, reaching out to its supporters and encouraging their participation in civic campaigns often designed to enlist non-hackers in their causes. Yet what happened seems to bemuse even FSF employees.
I've grown to really like KDE. Working with KDE is, in a word, fun. Yes, fun. Enjoyable. A pleasure to work with. Easy to approach. Provides pleasant surprises and wonderful answers to problems I never new I really had. That's why I keep posting about Suse and KDE, especially this release.
