The last commit digest made me thinking about applications development for KDE 4: several of the applications we really got used to in KDE 3 will be left behind because they will be replaced in one way or the other. So I decided to check which applications I know of will be replaced, and by what they will be replaced.
Open source database vendor MySQL AB is preparing itself for an initial public offering, and could even be ready to go public before the end of the year, according to its CEO Marten Mickos.
This article explains how I managed to install over 50 various operating systems on my computer (1 hard drive) without having to burn the distro ISO to disk to boot from. (No floppy, usb, cd, dvd, etc. needed!)
One of the problems dual booters face is trying to share files between the Windows and Linux portions of their hard drive, as Linux’s support for NTFS, Windows’ default filesystem, has always been limited to read only, if any support at all. The Linux NTFS project aimed to put a stop to that, and build a fully-working read and write driver for NTFS, so that Linux can write natively to Windows partitions.
Last week, Motorola and five other cell phone manufacturers announced the official launch of the LiMo Foundation, a "global mobile Linux initiative." The foundation will work off mobile Linux in a private collaborative development environment that has its roots in open source, but isn't quite.
Motorola, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic, Samsung, and Vodafone are each throwing $800,000 into the not-for-profit foundation, whose stated purpose is to create a Linux-based "ecosystem" and foster private collaboration on commodity elements of mobile platform and application development.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could access your Writer documents from any computer connected to the Internet and work with them as if they were on your local machine -- especially if this could be done transparently with just a couple of mouse clicks? To be able to do this, you don't have to install a full-blown document management solution or use a third-party file storage service. All you need is an FTP server and an OOo Basic macro.
It's sometimes hard to see through the brick and mortar of the commercial world, where trade secrets translate directly into dollars. But with open source, the code, the conversations between coders, and the bug tracking systems can be seen by everyone. That openness allows people to contribute and innovate in a variety of different ways.
At the Paris Solutions Linux show on Jan. 30, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Europe's second-largest automobile manufacturer, and Novell announced the signing of a multiyear contract for the deployment of up to 20,000 Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop installations plus 2,500 copies of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
Migrating user accounts is not an easy task especially if you are a new admin. You need to make sure that file ownership, and password and group membership remains the same.
It's long past time to bother telling anyone how much better than IE Firefox is. Faster, smaller, more responsive, with tabbed browsing and useful extensions galore. It's also lot more secure than IE, partly because it's open source, and particularly because it's not integrated with the underlying OS. Firefox's security bugs involve the browser only.
Frans Pop has announced that with the upload of the new kernel for Etch, they can now start seriously preparing the RC2 release of Debian Installer. He is particularly happy that they managed to fix some important issues in the graphical frontend, which is now a lot more stable than it was for RC1.
It's been five years since Drupal, the popular GPLed Web development framework, has had a major version release. The new Drupal 5, which debuted in earlier this month, was eight months in development and incorporates more than 1,000 patches from nearly half as many contributors. It also features overhauls and updates in system performance, usability, user interface, and theming.
In this interview, Jens talks about how he got interested in Linux, how he became the maintainer of the block layer and other block devices, and what's involved in being a maintainer. He describes his work on IO schedulers, offering an indepth look at the design and current status of the CFQ scheduler, including a peek at what's in store for the future.
Mozilla Firefox is a graphical web browser developed by the Mozilla Corporation. Started as a fork of the browser component (Navigator) of the Mozilla Application Suite, Firefox has replaced the Mozilla Suite as the flagship product of the Mozilla project. I am providing some Very Useful Tips to speedup your Firefox.
Up until a few years ago, Linux was mainly used on servers. Now, it’s increasingly being used on desktop computers and notebook PCs. The Linux Counter Project estimates there are 29 million users, which would give it just about 3.6 percent of the total personal computer market worldwide. But a number of factors are likely to push these numbers higher.
Even with Ubuntu's official position on the use of "Automatix" and the idea that you are on your own, the fact remains that it’s tools like this that have helped to propel Ubuntu into one of the top distributions of all time.

So how do you find out share name from Linux command line? Let us say you’ve few more servers running, a Windows 2000 server and a Redhat Enterprise Linux 4.0. How do you list or look for available share on a server?
So my dreams of being free of 32 bit still live on, yet I still cannot get a package that wants to work across the board...until now. More on that later, but let's give this new polished package a review before the Feb 10th expected launch and let people know if they should move over from other KDE systems to the one out of the Mountaineer state.
Want some frustration? Buy a piece of hardware with “Linux support” and try to use it on anything besides x86 GNU/Linux. If you’re fortunate enough to choose a device for which there exists free drivers, you’ll have much more luck. What about the other vendors?
Linspire and SageTV today announced the availability of SageTV Media Center Version 6 for users of the Linspire and Freespire desktop Linux operating system.
