Last week a new version of Sauerbraten was pushed out. This release most notably brings improvements with water effects in the game. Trying out the open-source game on a variety of ATI Radeon X1k hardware (both mobile and desktop), the game had run surprisingly smooth.
The troubled SymphonyOS Linux project has suffered another blow to their productivity in the form of malicious hackers. As perhaps another indication of the viability of the project, reports have confirmed that the site was defaced by a group calling themselves Sessiz Prens (Turkish Hackers). They even have the audacity to list an email address. symphonyos.com.
Some guy called Martin Girard had an article published in OS news cheekily entitled Why Desktop Linux Will Not Take off, and Why You Don’t Want It to. Isn’t this the year of GNU/Linux on the desktop again? That’s what the good people at Nuxified reckon as per Danijel Orsolic’s article How Microsoft is loosing to GNU/Linux. Here’s why I picked this up as opposed to letting the two articles just cancel each other out, and it’s back to the point I originally started off with about literacy. Kids these days are different to kids in my day.
Vista, Microsoft's new version of Windows, is almost ready to roll.

Vista obviously is not the only choice for Windows users, and switching to an Apple Macintosh computer is not the only alternative, either.

On the 12th September Rob Levin, known to many as Freenode's lilo, was hit by a car while riding his bike. He suffered head injuries and passed away in hospital on the 16th. For more information please visit #freenode-announce
From unforgettable flame-outs to some of the most popular destinations around, no one is safe from our look at the world's dumbest dot-coms and silliest sites.
With the advent of the tiny, lightweight, and portable USB key drive, system builders now have a new tool. I believe the USB key drive could alter—even usurp—our old rescue and recovery methodologies forever.
You are looking into the world of Linux? Welcome to another world of computing. As a MS Windows user you are familiar with one way of doing things. Be prepared to familiarize with a different way of doing things. This can sometimes be confusing, sometimes frustrating.
The final test release is now available for the upcoming Fedora Core 6. Looking to steer clear of Microsoft Vista? Fedora Core 6 has progressed wonderfully in the GNU/Linux desktop arena. With Fedora Core 6 Test 3 (FC6T3) are countless improvements including new artwork, GNOME 2.16.0, yum support from Anaconda, Xen virtualization improvements, startup performance improvements, and a new default font.
