The OpenVZ project (www.openvz.org) today announced its operating system-level server virtualization software technology is incorporated into Debian GNU/Linux giving users full access to OpenVZ software, which helps increase server utilization rates.
Over the years, I've had a number of people asking me what I believe the problem was with further migration over to Linux by the public at large. To be frank, I don't believe that there is a simple answer to this. To me, there are a number of factors that play a role in keeping Linux out of the mainstream limelight.
PCLinuxOS MiniMe 0.93a is the slim version of our Live CD for those who just want a basic desktop without the bloat. Simply put the CD into your CD or DVD drive and run it in live mode without ever touching anything on your computer. In addition to the Live CD mode you can also save your changes to a usb key disk. Whats New: Everything!
I've tested and/or reviewed every version of this operating system (now on its third name) since the first version, and each time I start out impressed but end up walking away disappointed. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 is not an exception to this tradition.
For intensive word-only writing, most of us can type on a keyboard far faster than we can scrawl with a pen, but the speed advantage is reversed for anything that requires diagramming or mathematical formulas. The open source application Xournal, which is designed to provide keyboard-less text entry and drawing features, is one solution. Taking freehand notes without that clunky, old-fashioned keyboard has never been easier.
These days, the average installation is pretty big - and many of the most popular programs take up huge swaths of space. Even with a 60GB hard drive like the one in my laptop, you still have to pay close attention lest it become Godzilla, The Eater Of All Available Space (and time, too - but we're not talking about Quake III or Xbubble at the moment.)
KDevelop is the premier Free integrated development environment. The project is currently working towards KDevelop 3.4 with a bunch of new features and a major new version KDevelop 4. To find out what's coming up in one of KDE's most important projects KDE Dot News spoke to three of the authors about their current work and future plans HERE.
Your most elaborate disaster recovery plans are only as good as your backups. In the context of routers (and most firewalls), all configuration is normally stored as a plain-text file in flash memory or some sort of NVRAM. Creating a replica of a router in case of catastrophic failure is simply a matter of physically plugging in a cold standby and copying the configuration from some backup medium onto the new device.
We've been talking, meeting, and arguing over GPL 3 for nearly two years. Recently, the second draft of the long-awaited rewrite of the popular free-software license arrived. The debate has begun all over again. If we're lucky, we'll see a finished GPL 3 some time in early 2007.

Did you ever wish you could automate your interaction with a program, making a script that can smartly handle an interactive session? You can -- with Expect, an extension to the Tcl programming language whose purpose is to communicate with interactive applications.
The purpose of this post is to give folks that have never used Ubuntu (or even Linux) and idea of what Ubuntu is all about. The reason for putting this together is that most of the existing reviews online are exactly that: reviews.
Free software advocates are defending revisions to the General Public License, while critics emerge to oppose the most recent version.
Yahoo! doesn't plan to release all its software code under an open source license because it's unpractical and carries limited benefits, Yahoo! developer Jeremy Zawodny said on his blog.
Pervasive Software has pulled the plug on its PostgreSQL-based database offering after a year and a half.
Andrew Morton has started working for a new company, but his day job as the Linux 2.6 kernel maintainer will remain exactly the same. The new company is none other than Google.
This is a very rough guide at the moment, corrections welcome.
This method doesn't remove Windows in any way, similar to booting from CD-ROM on a PC
When open source developers gather on a panel to discuss whether "all software will go open source," you can expect the sentiment to tip that way, only with lots of arguments.
