For those of us who using a computer is not just a job. A lot of computer users are just that. Computer users. They only use the computer to do the job at hand and have no inclination or interest in any other aspect of computing. Then there are the power users.
There are several myths floating around the wicked world web and I intend to address one of those today. That is installation of programs under Linux. It seems to be a common misconception that installing programs under Linux is hard or difficult and that windows is easier.
iTWire: Previously in ITWire we put forth the view that one reason people stick to Windows is because they have to run specific applications that only exist for that platform. We’d like to introduce you to two tremendous web sites which help find open source equivalents for proprietary Windows software.
freesoftware mag: This article describes the work in progress of applying Ubuntu Linux sensibly within an underfunded school, and as part of a wider well thought out and alternative educational structure. I shall emphasise best practices and try my best not to dwell too much on the underlying technologies.
linux-tip.net: The VectorLinux Website is promising: “Speed, performance, stability -- these are attributes that set VectorLinux apart in the crowded field of Linux distributions. This is a detailed description about how to install and set up VectorLinux.
the_source: OK. This is just ridiculous. I buy a new printer the other day. HP C6180. It's a pretty nice printer. I usually check the net to make sure new devices I buy have a good track record for working with Linux, but this time it was an impulse buy and I figured I could return it if I had problems.
builder.au: GPLv3 will help FreeBSD take some users away from Linux, according to the founder and vice president of The FreeBSD Foundation.
FOSSwire: Whether your ISP is filtering content or you just want some privacy on the internet, there is always a quick solution, and it is surprisingly easy to set up.
computerworld: James Purser, a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) supporter, committee member for Linux Australia, and ICT consultant, is running for the Senate in the next federal election as an independent for New South Wales.
arstechnica: The first alpha release of Python 3.0 was made available for download on Friday. Python 3.0 includes syntactic and architectural changes that are incompatible with the 2.x series.
LINUX SYSAD BLOG: Backup like a PRO using one most popular linux backup tool alternatives called rsync. RSync backups data and does it very clean and well. Rsync only transfers those data that have been modified and changed so that the destination host has an exact replica from the source host.
phoronix: On the Phoronix Forums we have been running a Q&A with the developers of the Nouveau project. For those out of the loop or new to Linux, the Nouveau project aims to provide an open-source 2D/3D graphics driver for NVIDIA hardware. After collecting a number of questions from our readers, KoalaBR and Marcheu have answered these questions.
redmond developer: Any developers who thought Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin's recent advice to open sourcers to stop bashing Microsoft signaled some kind of rapprochement between the rival OSes should think again.
International Herald Tribune: Adblock Plus, an easy-to-use free addition to the Firefox Internet browser that deletes advertisements from Web sites is still a niche product for the niche browser. But it is potentially a huge development in the online world, and not because it simplifies Web sites cluttered with advertisements.
CLICK: I can't believe I didn't think of this before. When the GUI text editor Geany wouldn't cooperate with the X setup on my Debian 4.0 laptop, I took the advice of all the users of self-described "crap computers" at ubuntuforums.org and went for the smaller, faster Leafpad editor. Problem solved.
just uber: I set up a desktop the other day which I intend to store some files on. The problem is however, I usually use my laptop, and I’m too lazy to walk upstairs to the desktop. I’ve always just used ssh to administer servers through the command line, but in this case, this being a desktop, I wanted a GUI.
This article describes how to set up PC-BSD v1.4 beta. PC-BSD is released under the BSD license. PC-BSD is a desktop operating system based on FreeBSD. It uses KDE as its desktop environment.
PCLinuxOS Magazine, September 2007 Issue is available to download. Some highlights include PCLinuxOS - A Walk Down History Lane, KDE User Guide - Part 8, and Ubuntu's Hype is Misleading.
pinderkent.blogsavy: I was disappointed today to hear that the release of KDE 4.0 will be delayed by two months. The delay is caused by the insertion of two extra betas. But this isn’t a bad thing at all.
matt asay: Consider: a large population of users who can report virii. Many people with the same "itch" (to be free of virii). A subsegment of both communities with the aptitude and interest in killing these virii. Should be a perfect market for open source, right?
