Since the beginning of the software industry, nearly every software company in the world has followed the same business model: its own employees develop the software, which is closely held intellectual property, the software is delivered to clients in binary form, and users run the licensed software on their own computers. Today, this model has been challenged by a new paradigm: open source.
When the data corruption bug which is fixed as of 2.6.20-rc3 was still being tracked down, it was thought that the bug, a race in shared mmap'ed page writeback, might have been in the 2.6 kernel for a very long time. It has since been determined that the bug was introduced much more recently.
Last time, we talked about getting Ubuntu/Mint Linux installed and how to take control of your sound card again . This time: Wireless Cards, Webcams, and Printers/All-in-ones.
Computer disks have a finite capacity, and when they fill up it can lead to serious problems, including lost data and email. Actually it’s slightly more complicated than that; disks are divided into partitions, and the problems ensue when an important partition such as one containing user files fills up.

If Novell wants to maximize the potential of their Microsoft alliance and bring about a scenario like Canonical founder, Mark Shuttleworth, outlined in a recent Red Herring interview then you have to think they'll buy XenSource. Why XenSource?
Say you have a grub password to keep nefarious evil-doers from modifying your er... grubs. Then say a few months go by and you decide to modify some stuff but you’ve forgotten your password. What do you do?
Kaj Arno, MySQL VP of community relations, quietly revealed on his blog before Christmas that MySQL has changed its license to "GPL2 Only." This does not mean, however, that the MySQL AB, the well-known open-source DBMS (database management system) vendor, is sticking to the GPLv2 forever.
With the great deal of articles that we publish in regards to NVIDIA and ATI display drivers, it is very evident that at this time NVIDIA has the lead when it comes to the frame-rate performance. One of the areas that often is not mentioned in Phoronix articles is the image quality between ATI and NVIDIA's hardware with their respective drivers.
