The funny thing is we expect more out of Linux and open source apps than we do from Microsoft products. I never expect Linux machines to go down, Apache to crash, or desktops to be under virus threat, and I sure don't worry about excessive licensing fees.
Not to pick on MySQL or anything, but does it really makes sense to compare it to the light versions of proprietary databases? I thought not, but MySQL users say I'm all wet.
So is Metasploit helping to spread the zero day outbreak, or is it helping security professionals to protect against it? The answer depends.
Intel Corp., whose marketing made its computer chips a household name, is changing its logo for the first time in 37 years.
MANDRIVA 2006.1-0.3 Beta is here. The new snapshot is available in your choice of 3 700MB isos for either the i586 or x86-64 or one i586 Live CD. Here's what we found.
A group of automotive and computer enthusiasts managed to install a Mac mini computer in a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
In this chapter, you will learn how to make your system truly your own. You'll learn how to change your background, your colors, your fonts, and anything else you'll need to create a desktop as individual as you are.
Just before the stroke of midnight scientists will delay the start of 2006 by adding a "leap second" to accommodate for changes in the Earth's rotation.
Sporting a seriously retro look while rendering in OpenGL Darwini has style and some gorgeous graphics. We've got a full review with accompanying screen shots for your perusal.
Information theft scammers are increasingly spoofing SSL certificates in a bid to fool Web users, Netcraft reports.
Over at NewsForge, Jay Lyman does a good job of explaining why HP's Media Hub, a Linux media system, came to nothing. He also talks with some analysts and people in the business about why Linux media centers haven't appeared.
That's all well and good, but Lyman doesn't ask the question I want to know the answer to: why don't we have a good Linux Media Center PC program?
So the PSP can do games, movies, video, music, photos, and Internet. Well, that's not enough—it should be able to run software we enjoy on our home PCs! Utilizing an open source x86 emulator called Bochs, which emulates the hardware usually found in PCs, and creating a few hard disk images with the software we want on them, you can run Linux and even Windows on your PSP!
There must have been a whole lot of good boys and girls in Open Source as we were on the receiving end of a lot of really great presents this week - nary a lump of coal in sight! So, without further ado, let's get on with the Christmas cheer.
During his first month on the job at Novell, Dr. Jeffrey ("Jeff") Jaffe has roved the globe, culling ideas from his new colleagues about company strategy around Linux and open source in 2006 and future years to come.
Well, it's the day after christmas and like me, you got this new keyboard with all those sweet little buttons on top. How to configure that you may ask? Let's explore this together.
"I really think 2006 is going to be the year of the Linux desktop," Russell Nelson, vice president of the Open Source Initiative predicted. "That's when people are going to start taking it seriously. You may not see too many installs," he continued, "but you're going to start to see people thinking about it."
I was interested to see how Zenwalk differs from Slackware, and after reading on their web site that version 2.01 is 'the biggest jump in Zenwalk evolution since the beginning of the project', I wanted to see how far Zenwalk has come since it was reviewed here as MiniSlack.
So what have we learned this year? Well, if Linux ever came of age, it's this year. It's possibly more confusing than ever to choose between open source and proprietary than it has ever been, but this has been the result from a desperate PR campaign, from both sides, to mis-foot the other.
