It's been a while since I looked at Xandros. True to form, it has remained one of the easiest to use and flat out slickest Linux distributions available. This version of Xandros focuses on the "digital lifestyle" and includes wireless network profiles, a music manager with iPod & MP3 support, photo manager, video players and internet telephone via Skype, among other things.
This update includes a host of new and community requested features such as: more agile player movement, weapon balance adjustments, a single ambient light option, improved rendering and cpu peformance and much more. Also brand new elements are introduce to Quake 4:
If there's one area where Linux distributions fall behind Windows, it's games. Most PC games are built for Windows. Where does that leave Linux users? With Cedega, a melding of Wine and DirectX developed by TransGaming. Today, Cedega 5.2.3 officially supports about 50 games, though in reality it can run a lot more.
CAN you run Adobe Photoshop on Linux?
Many Web designers, graphic artists and bloggers might consider the answer to this question crucial when considering a shift from Windows.
Have you ever had to use someone else's PC at work - either to complete a quick task, or as a substitute machine for a short period of time? The experience is never pleasant - foreign desktop settings, grimy keyboards, crazy font sizes and odd wallpaper - it's liken to borrowing someone's swim trunks. If you're a Linux desktop user and are forced to use someone's Windows machine, the experience may be more on par with borrowing a toothbrush.
The Xen open-source virtualization environment is not yet ready for enterprise use, a senior Red Hat executive has said, despite "unbelievable" customer demand and the fact that Novell has already started shipping the software.
Technologists are at odds over how to bridge the digital divide. What one group calls the ultimate solution, another dismisses as "the scam of the century", reports Waleed al-Shobakky.
In a new initiative to spur more use of open source software (OSS) within the US Defense Department, the department's Office of Advanced Systems and Concepts (AS&C) has begun teaming up with Red Hat, Novell, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and AMD--along with big systems integrators and "non-traditional" open source companies--to glean insights that will help shorten the learning curve to deployment.
With the recent release of both ZenLive Linux 2.6.1 and Zenwalk Linux 2.8, this distribution formerly-known as Minislack (through mid-2005) hits it big. In a world of easy to use, installable LiveCDs like Ubuntu / Kubuntu / Xubuntu, MEPIS, PCLinuxOS, Mandriva One and others, this might be the chance to prove that the Slackware base does not impede a distro to keep up with the current standards.
While releasing Linux 2.4.33-rc3 Marcelo Tosatti has announced that in future Willy Tarreau will maintain the Linux kernel series 2.4.
THE Free Open Source Software Group (FOSS) has been invited to demonstrate a wide range of open source applications at PC Fair 2006 (II), which will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from August 11 to 13.
While running a HTTP server such as Apache, there are a few steps an administrator has to take in order not to get easily hacked. The very basic one is to hide from the outside which software version and operting system version are running.
Too many Linux image viewers are tinged with little annoyances -- they take too long to load, are slow to redraw the display, have limited format support, sport inconvenient controls -- so when you want to settle on one, inevitably there's something to make you utter feh! in general discontent. Good call -- feh is the name of a speedy little viewer that packs in a surprising number of features for its size.
I was feeling daring, so I burnt the experimental Dreamlinux 2.0 XGL Edition to a CD-R, and rebooted. For a minimalistic Window Manager, Xfce has been customised to look very nice indeed.
Boeing has awarded Wind River Systems a contract to embed its version of Linux into a new military aircraft, the company plans to announce Monday along with a new batch of products built around the open-source operating system.
Novell has now announced that their recently launched SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, the next-generation platform for the open enterprise has seen a pretty successful launch.
I read with great amusement a blog entry from Bryan O'Bryan entitled Why I ditched my Mac for Linux and some of the comments (no time to read them all; perhaps later). Instead of leaving a comment there and having it lost in the 100+ comments, I decided to respond here.
