The OpenOffice.org productivity project is looking to take advantage of Microsoft Corp's latest piracy crackdown to promote its open source Office alternative, pointing out that it could be the quickest and cheapest way to get legal.
The auto complete feature of the Bourne Again SHell makes bash one of the most loved and newbie-friendly Linux shells. Just by pressing the Tab key you can complete commands and filenames. Press the Tab key twice and all files in the directory get displayed. But you can do more with autocomplete...
There are any number of tools to help the diligent sysadmin monitor this data visually as it is collected. A good many of them are built using Tobias Oetiker's excellent RRDTool.
As you might surmise, most Linux systems provide a myriad of visualization tools (Grace and GRI come to mind). In this article, I'll introduce you to Gnuplot, focusing specifically on how to plot time series data.
Sun has flagged the release of its Java update at the upcoming JavaOne conference, which commences on May 16, claiming it is the most significant update to the program development platform in years.
In planning for this year's show, our group looked at what went well and what could have been done better. Things that were done well included over-staffing the booth so that at any given time many of the volunteers could be looking at the other booths, drinking the show in. In the not so good category was the consensus that electrical power in the booth wasn't worth what the convention center charged us. In the "just different" category, during the past year as an organization, the Toronto Linux User Group had legally changed names to become the Greater Toronto Area Linux User Group (GTALUG), meaning that the banner and paperwork from last year could not be reused.
Now that the Xen 3.0 packages have made it to Debians unstable distribution installation has become much more straightforward. Here we'll take a look at installing and getting started with it upon a generic unstable machine.
Ubuntu Dapper was originally pegged for release in April, but is now set for June. However, it’s already stable (in my experience), and markedly better than Breezy. Here’s a brief guide to upgrading. This assumes you’re already running [*]Ubuntu Breezy, like any sane computer user.
Almost two years ago I wondered about the negative aspects of companies like IBM and HP trying to control Linux by hiring top Linux developers. Well, part of the problem may be about to get some attention.
With NVIDIA's 1.0-8756 Linux display driver having come out exactly one month ago, it should be about time for another driver release. For a while now, NVIDIA has been on the approximate 4 month/3~4 week release cycle for their Linux display drivers. This time around it seems that NVIDIA's Linux display driver launch may be pushed back a bit.
In this week's KDE Commit-Digest: Coverity fixes continue to roll in. amaroK gets enhanced support for VFAT (ie. Generic Audio) devices. New themes for KTuberling. Preliminary support for both next-generation disc formats (Blu-ray and HD-DVD) in K3B. More Here.
Beta 11 features a couple cool things in Xgl. First, the cube plugin is no longer constrained to four faces. Full Blurb Here.
Most of the books about specific GNU/Linux distributions that I've read tend to be either too advanced to comprehend or too elementary to stomach. Apress's Beginning Ubuntu Linux tends toward the latter, but doesn't totally ignore more advanced GNU/Linux topics. Despite its shortcomings, readers who are new to GNU/Linux and are decided on the Ubuntu distribution will find some benefit in it.
I was invited to Pixar today to see a screening of their new movie “Cars”. America’s love affair with the automobile is a great backdrop for a story that will appeal to gearheads and animation fans alike.
An open source veteran, David Uhlman has lived and breathed the market from server appliances to financial processing. Now, he's CEO of open source software company Uversa Inc., and Uhlman spoke at the Linux Desktop Summit in San Diego about what he considers to be the top 50 open source business applications. He sat down with SearchOpenSource.com's MiMi Yeh to talk about why IT managers should be on the lookout for MySQL, why macro support in OpenOffice doesn't matter, and what proprietary applications are ripe to switch to open source alternatives.
I saw the success of my MPlayer review, and I looked for another open-source project, which developers I should interview. The first name came to my mind was "K3B". I dropped the maintainer a mail, and today evening we were ready.
Book publisher In Pictures announced this week that it has added new how-to books on desktop Linux (Linspire Five-O), and the four OpenOffice.org programs (Base, Calc, Impress, Writer) to its catalog. The books are all designed for new and relatively new users.

I have touched on this subject before, back in November. My basic premise then (and now) is that the very notion of anti-virus software for Linux is about as necessary as wearing a life jacket around the house to prevent drowning. Sure, you could fall into a tubful of water and die, but in reality, what are the odds of that happening?
The site was down in the early part of this morning due to maintenance/system software upgrades. It will go down again tonight at approximately the same time and for about the same length of time as I attempt to upgrade the cms.
I guess most of those, who are familiar with linux already heard of the fierce beast, which seeks for its prey in the Linux jungle, the Gentoo GNU/Linux distribution. Despite of what most of the people think, Gentoo is not about building everything from source, optimization flags, and text-mode installation.
