Over the years, I have accumulated a couple of hard disks which I salvaged from my old computers. I have a Seagate 12 GB hard disk, a Samsung 2.1 GB hard disk apart from another Seagate 20 GB hard disk. In fact, these were just lying around with out being put to any use and recently I decided to add one of them to my present computer.
Recently Medsphere, supposedly an “Open Source” Medical Software Company, has sued its founders Scott and Steve Shreeve. Why? Medsphere claims that the Shreeves illegally released Medsphere software to Sourceforge. An “Open Source” Software company is suing its founders for releasing code under a free license... that’s a bit like Ford suing its employees for making cars.
OS X is more appealing to enterprises as a desktop operating system than ever before and although it is unlikely to take market share away from Windows, the Mac could reduce the number of Linux-based desktops, according to research group Gartner.
After trying out openSUSE 10.2 last night @home on a separate partition and spending some time, around couple of hours, I decided to take a bold decision - to install it as my primary OS, replacing the good old SUSE 10.1.
There are many things about GNU/Linux which merit complaint. But it is extremely doubtful whether anyone can find anything to complain about with regards to the versatile nature of the operating system. Despite this flexibility, it's not often that one hears of the operating system being used in secure facilities by government organisations. Hence I was pleasantly surprised to hear that a locked-down version of the Knoppix distribution is being used at a remand centre close to Melbourne.
The greatest differentiator between OS vendors is no longer a question of features, function, performance, customer support, security, reliability or any feature of the product itself. The future of computing may depend on the lawyers.
The LDTP team is proud to announce the release of LDTP 0.7.0. This release features number of important breakthroughs in LDTP as well as in the field of Test Automation.

Featured in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Herd 1 is GNOME 2.17, new disk analyzer, Linux 2.6.19 kernel, and a massive package merge from Debian. Screenshots @ Phoronix.
Featuring water-cooled microprocessors, beefy graphics cards and gigabytes of memory, current high-end gaming PCs are light years ahead of the latest consoles from Microsoft Corp., Nintendo Co. or Sony Corp. However, they come at a hefty price, however.
Yesterday at 18:30, I had a first-hand opportunity to see Richard Stallman live. He came to Guayaquil, Ecuador for the first time ever to give a series of talks on Free Software. The first talk was on Free Software and the ethics and values of the movement. The second talk, due today in the morning, was about the dangers of patents in the field of software.
One of the most common problems of managing large numbers of computers is how to keep so many systems up-to-date and consistent. Take a look at several techniques that illustrate how to move files among systems and how to keep such far-flung data in sync. In Part 5 of this series, let's look at a handful of techniques that can help keep explosions of files under control.
I’ve had some good things to report on Ubuntu Edgy 6.10 recently. So when I recently purchased a new Dell 1907FP LCD monitor to replace my old CRT monitor I was expecting a fairly painless exercise. After all, I was just replacing a monitor. Surely it couldn’t be that difficult with Ubuntu Edgy, could it? Maybe it was my turn at last to experience some Edgy woes.
For those of you that recently came from the wonderful world of windows you might prefer to have quick access to “My Computer”, “My Documents” and “Trash” right there on the desktop. This tutorial will outline how to have those icons included (or removed).
Even though I am quite at home on the command line and tend to use it quite a bit I am still an eye candy junkie. I suppose it is from my windows background but still I can't help it. If I am going to stare at a screen all day it may as well look pretty. I had heard all the hype about the new windows vista and its fantastic new eye candy enhancements that just makes your time at the computer so pleasing you won't want to leave it. I was mildly interested in seeing what they have done but I wasn't going to immediately rush out and buy a copy. From my past experiences from win95 onwards each new version of windows is just the same'ol'samo with a bit more icing on the top.
IBM voted against the certification of Microsoft Office document formats as an international standard at a general assembly of Ecma International on Thursday.
There's no dearth of Linux distributions to choose from. With so many to choose from, one might think it's as easy as picking up the Linux kernel, throwing in a few applications, setting up respositories, making ISOs and you've got a shiny new Linux distro. Well, there's more to a Linux distro than assembling applications and making sure everything works. A lot of time and effort, at least for major distros, is spent on making the distribution secure and getting updates out in a timely fashion.
The man behind SpreadFirefox.com told WebProNews the story of the Firefox Crop Circle, and how a bunch of students pulled off a memorable feat through hard work, persistence, and a nudge from Lady Luck.
