As I have said before in my column, one of the biggest misconceptions in the Information Technology (IT) industry is that technology is replaceable. If you do buy a new machine, do you pay the Microsoft Windows tax or do you find a machine on the secondary market and avoid paying the tax to get Linux installed directly.
It has been quite a while since my last update. I did not have too much time on my hands. But trust me: that will change soon. To ease the waiting for K3b 1.0 here is another bugfix release of the 0.12 series.
Former head of M$ development is serving up competition in the form of Web-based applications a la Google or Yahoo!, states may open source parts of code.
Hey, it's our old friend FUD making an appearance yet again! Does it work? Apparently Microsoft thinks so, because it's employing it again in the form of comments from chief platform strategist Bill Hilf: "most open-source code is terribly inferior to commercial software code." I mean, c'mon. That's flatly ridiculous.
If you have two network cards in your ubuntu computer, it can be a very powerfull router. You can set up basic NAT, do port forwarding, set up a proxy, and even do packet prioritization so your downloads dont interfere with gaming! This guide is made using kubuntu to show that it will work with any version of ubuntu.
So this release cycle's Ubuntu Dev Summit has ended. 60 people from the wider Ubuntu community gathered in Paris to draft the next release, Edgy Eft -- and it will be rocking (although probably edgy, as its name says).
Keeping up with the World Cup can be a pain, especially if you're at work and have to keep one eye peeled for your boss. If you could use a better way to catch the latest scores -- and if you only want soccer results -- drop by Mozilla.org and try out Boris Ruf's Footiefox extension.
After working on Flake for the last couple of weeks I refocussed on KWord earlier this week. KWord needs an amazing amount of refactors to get the best out of the new features both Qt4 and Flake provide, so this left me with a dilemma on where to start and how to approach this best.
When I first read about XANDROS SERVER, I thought this might be a marriage made in heaven. The Press Release said that this was a Linux based server for System Admins with little or no Linux experience. Mine was a little different. I had Linux experience, however no server or server set-up experience.
Also: Xandros 4 Home Ed. is a breeze to install!
The last time we had took a look at Mandriva was back in the Mandrake 9.2 days. Anyhow, with the first Alpha release now out for Mandriva 2007 Alpha, we decided to fire up the GNOME candidate to see how it looks these days.
So, you want to get your Linux distribution or open-source program into as many hands as possible without spending a ton of money on servers or bandwidth. What's the answer? Most people already know the solution: BitTorrent. There's only one little problem.
Ubuntu Hacks, a new volume from O'Reilly Media ($29.99), explains the phenomenon of Ubuntu's popularity, expounds on its use, and offers easy-to-understand "hacks" -- that is, how to tweak it to do exactly what you want.
Ellison said that Oracle could just go and take Linux, and support it better than anyone else and become the "number one distributor. And we may, in fact, do that in the future."
Feeling brave, I decide to open up Blender. The 3D drawing tool. I have been meaning to learn how to use this program since it was released under an open license. People talk about how you can do animation with it and all kinds of neat stuff. I want to make a 3D icon of myself that I can use on forums.
This is not funny, to be deceived by someone who is regarded with a religious devotion by some. When comes to Mark Shuttleworth, it seems I'm not the only one questioning his real moral probity.
