IT managers have slammed Microsoft's claims that Linux source code infringes on its intellectual property, and have criticized Novell's deal with the company saying it grants validity to the claims.
This board in general is not a good Linux board. It was purchased with Windows in mind. Which in the end turned out to be something of a negative, as three of the five people who got them wanted a Linux-something installed. Two of us have gotten it working.
Until recently I had been a Gmail holdout. One of the first problems I had is that I didn't want to stay logged in all the time through my browser. Fortunately I had run across KCheckGmail before. After a little trouble getting configured, I finally got everything running and KCheckGmail gave me everything I was looking for.
DVD playback is not a feature that is installed by default due to license restrictions. In my opinion the restriction is stupid, very restrictive and violates my rights. This tutorial will show you how to install DVD playback capability on your Ubuntu linux machine.
Actually, my mom loves Ubuntu. My mother is like most parents these days - they buy a computer at Best Buy or Walmart and they take it home, plug it in and start using the web. I decided to install Ubuntu on my mom’s new laptop.
During a pilot project for Linux Simple Internet Server (SIS) for 20 companies conducted by the National Electronics and Computer Technology Centre (Nectec), SMEs found that they could save on software licensing costs by up to 50,000 baht.

Last week we flew over the virtualization landscape and got a peek at the lay of the land. Today we'll look at some of the Linux applications for implementing virtualization: Xen, User-Mode Linux, VMWare, chroot jails, and OpenVZ.
A very large proportion of all the work most users do from the command line, evenadvanced users, consists of few key activities and a fairly small number of common commands. Most of these have to do with locating, listing, creating, editing, and deleting files and directories. This article provides an overview of the most common file and directory-related tasks and the commands that you use to perform them.

Oakland computer programmer Hans Reiser repeatedly laughed in court and whispered in his lawyer's ear Wednesday as prosecutors presented circumstantial evidence aimed at proving that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser, who disappeared on Sept. 3.

Finally, you will learn about ACLs: what they are, how to create them, and how to use them in your application.
File `diversions’ are a way of forcing dpkg not to install a file into its location, but to a `diverted’ location.

System administrators can also use it to override some package’s configuration file, or whenever some files need to be preserved by dpkg, when installing a newer version of a package which contains those files.
Exactly ten years ago I was sitting in a small but cosy flat in the west of Helsinki, waiting to interview its owner. He was busy in the tiny kitchen, which lay just past the entrance hall decked out with dozens of cups and shields won at Karate competitions, preparing a cappuccino for each of us. As you've probably guessed, his name was Linus Torvalds - the trophies belong to his wife.
