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.

Edgy Eft (version 6.10), the second release of Xubuntu, a variant of Ubuntu Linux built around the Xfce4 desktop and designed to be lightweight, was released in October. I’ve been using it since then and I’ve been impressed.
Emacs is a text editor developed back in the '70ties when computer operators and programmers used primarily text-based terminal windows to interact with computers. It is a powerful program, but all that power is hidden behind non-intuitive key-bindings.
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.
IBM Corp., which has been a big backer of open-source software, is working with seven universities on new computing research projects whose fruits would be widely shared rather than held as intellectual property.

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.
I really think this is shortsighted. It will only result in _exactly_ the crap we were just trying to avoid, namely stupid "shell game" drivers that don't actually help anything at all, and move code into user space instead. What was the point again?
This tutorial shows you how to jumpstart your CakePHP application using scaffolding and Bake. You will also learn the ins and outs of using CakePHP's Access Control Lists (ACLs). You'll get a look at what scaffolding is and what it provides. Then you'll learn how to use Bake to generate the code for a scaffold, letting you tweak it as you go. 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. Diversions can be used through the Debian package scripts to move a file away when it causes a conflict. 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.
Ulteo is a new distribution based upon Ubuntu that promises to deliver revolutionary concepts in managing and updating an operating system and applications. Ulteo Sirius Alpha 1 is the first public version of this new Linux distribution, which we had decided to try out for ourselves.
Wicked Cool Shell Scripts by Dave Taylor is a book that delights my force for good hacker’s instinct. Listing 101 viable Bourne shell (sh) example scripts succinctly, one is hard pressed to find a better starting point to enabling your intellectual problem solving physique to gain meaningful contact with real world coding. If you enjoy pimping the Linux, Unix and Mac OS X command line into customized heaven you may find this is one of the main books for you.
While a full-fledged image editor may be the best way to repair digital photos, most of the time users need only to make minor touch-ups; it is organizing, sorting, and finding a specific photo that eat up all the time. For that task, as is often the case with Linux, you have several options to choose from. Let's take a look at the major photo management applications, and compare them side by side.
If you could ask Bill Gates one question, what would you ask? I spent an hour today with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates on the company's Redmond campus. I chose to ask Bill about Microsoft's intellectual property stance against Linux and its open source developers.
Some vulnerabilities have been reported within the Linux kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users and malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
If you install Ubuntu from a cd-rom, when you try to use apt-get to install new software it will prompt you for the cdrom every time. Kinda frustrating! There’s an easy way to fix this problem.
God's own country Kerala is now closer to Linux. It has become India's first and the only state to have closed its doors to Windows and let Linux in. The drive was kindled by Richard Stallman's visit to the state, inspiring schools to switchover to Linux. As a result, 12,500 high schools in the state are working on Linux and not Windows.
The first thing that caught my attention was that all my NTFS (Windows file system) hard drives were accessible which is really great. I had an entry on my list of things that I wanted Ubuntu to do and this was one of them.
