STUX is a Slackware/Knoppix-powered live CD with the Morphix-like ability to build a custom ISO. While the combination has high potential, this implementation leaves something to be desired. It's worth the experience if you enjoy using new distributions, but if you're looking to replace your current desktop OS, look elsewhere.
Robertson is the chief executive officer of San Diego-based Linspire, a company that produces a license-free desktop Linux operating system that is gaining market share on Microsoft Windows.
When it comes to open-sourcing Solaris and Java, patents and politics are leading Sun Microsystems toward a change of heart. The question is which open-source license should govern the building of projects out of the company's technology crown jewels.

After a long and arduous journey that included a suspended validation last year, the Open Source Software Institute (OSSI) has announced that OpenSSL has regained its FIPS 140-2 validation and is now available for download.

The marketing propaganda touting Microsoft's new Vista operating system as "the most secure version of Windows yet" has done nothing to stop both white and black hat hackers from discovering Vista vulnerabilities. Said one very irritated and frustrated Vista early adopter, "I should have bought a Mac."
I have strong reservations about Ubuntu, its motives and the way it is shaping up. The deal its parent company, Canonical, has just struck with commercial Linux company Linspire (formerly Lindows) to use commercial software from the Click and Run warehouse owned by Linspire is just the latest indication that, with Ubuntu, all is not as it seems.
Aging Linux and Unix systems have prompted car rental company Thrifty Inc. to modernize its server platforms and direct investment towards more innovative applications.

Because I've just received my copy of LXF90 (March 2007), and its DVD includes the Beryl-aware KNOPPIX 5.1.1, I thought I should give it a try. This is the second time in my life when I boot into KNOPPIX. I usually dislike live distros.
As a musician and long time Linux user I have often found myself stuck between a rock and a Microsoft place, when it came to recording. The world of mixers, Mic's, proprietary hardware and its accompanying software seemed like one that that didn't have any room for Linux and its "volunteer" coders. There are now several distributions of Linux based on Debian and Redhat which are compiled and tuned with multimedia work in mind.
Every now and again, technology companies make a deal that everyone likes. That's the case with Canonical Ltd.'s new partnership with Linspire Inc., whereby the companies will share Linux operating system and software distribution technologies.
The blogosphere has been singing both positive and negative tunes about Microsoft's latest offering in its long line of operating systems.

This was the first time that I used the Debian Installer to install linux. I am impressed, it was able to find all of my hardware and configure it all appropriately. I am pleased to see this since this has always been a downfall of debian distro. I am going to record the events so that if anyone else can use this information it is available. I am also going to try and record the installation process for installing Mythtv for debian.
