When Ron Hovsepian was named chief operating officer of Waltham's Novell Inc. in November, investors were already calling for the ouster of then-chief executive Jack Messman. In June, Messman's critics got their wish, and Hovsepian got one of the toughest jobs in the software industry. Hovsepian recently spoke with Globe reporter Hiawatha Bray on how he expects to meet the challenge that defeated his former boss.
Some pretty stunning video of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project's distinctive orange clam-shelled case with a fat antenna sticking up on each side of the color screen came out of the Red Hat Linux meeting in San Francisco on Friday.
Some prominent people have called free software “communist” in an attempt to bring Cold War bugaboos to bear against the movement—a kind of “nuclear option” of FUD. I remember the paranoia of the Cold War personally, and I thought then (and I still do now) that it was “just stupid”.
What's all the fuss about virtual machines? From AMD to Intel, Microsoft to Novell to Red Hat, every major OS and hardware platform vendor today has a stake in the virtualization game. However, the truth is that running multiple virtual systems on a single physical workstation or server is simply passe.
My Dell Latitude 110L test box has a really annoying issue: closing the lid and reopening it makes the screen stay blank (without freezing the system). A wiki about DellLatitude110L and a Dell Latitude 110L & Gentoo Linux article pointed me to a workaround.
Texstar and the Ripper Gang released their PCLinuxOS 0.93a MiniMe yesterday and early reports are quite positive. This installable livecd weighs in at a 300 MB download and resulting system of 1.3 GB. It's a slimmed trimmed down version of PCLinuxOS which gives the user the opportunity to install the packages they want and make the system their very own.
Years ago, there was an old way parents were thinking about their kids in my country: «I have made them, I will kill them too.» Does the fact that you created something give you the right to be a dictator?
If you really want to know what’s so cool about free software, you need to participate. It’s never been easier—there are many incremental improvements in programming languages for ‘scripting’ and ‘middleware’ have been made—these languages can make programming a real joy. And I think you will find it a liberating experience.
Our universe may be 15% larger and older than we thought, according to new measurements of the distance to a nearby galaxy. Recent estimates have put the age of the universe at 13.7 billion years, and the new research suggests it may actually be 15.8 billion years old.
Ark Linux 2006.1 is out, which ships with the newly-released KDE 3.5.4, and brings a host of other improvements to the distribution. X.Org has also been upgrades to 7.1.1 and AmaroK is at 1.4.1. Numerous bugs were also squashed in the LiveCD version of Ark Linux 2006.1. We have shots up at Phoronix today.
Why is the Reiser4 filesystem not in the Linux kernel? Recently, the question has been discussed on the kernel mailing list, and it's not a pretty sight; anyone who imagines that kernel development is a rational discourse only needs to look at the exchange to be disillusioned. While both sides claim to be arguing technical merits, the discussion spills over into a debate about the advantages of established procedures and policies. It's also turned into a clash of personalities.
A couple of months back, I did something really interesting. I downloaded the WordPress content management suite from thewordpress.org site and installed it on my machine. So why did I do such a thing? Well, I am in the habit of maintaining a diary containing my day to day experiences.
Freespire is a very well put together distro in RC status, that still has a few small bugs to work out. Over all I am quite impressed, and am comfortable recommending it to most anyone who is interesting in trying Linux out.

Bill Gates meets the Oprahnator? This I did have to see. Monday night I settled in with the remote and a strong drink and fired up the episode, chillingly titled "What Bill and Melinda Gates Want You to Know."
For the last three years, the Gentoo project has run monthly Bugday events to encourage users and developers to team up and help to solve as many bugs as possible in a day. Now, for the third anniversary of the initiative, the Bugday team has something special planned. The star prize will be a real life Chilean Gentoo penguin.
Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 is a strong contender to Windows on corporate clients, with a well-thought-out desktop environment and some innovative features.
