Writing to NTFS partitions under Linux has been a real pain, if possible at all, for quite a long time. With a dual-boot Linux and Windows system, you can end up not being able to exchange files without a lot of trickery and special programs.

Lightweight Linux That's Both Beautiful *and* Functional

KDE is, in this writer's humble opinion, the best desktop environment for computers today. It is even better than the almost universally praised Mac OS X. It goes without saying that it is better than any Microsoft product.

Recently I needed to set up a server with all the usual server components -- Web, mail, and file sharing. It needed to be rock-solid and reliable. I didn't want to download 4GB of software from the Net, so I turned to CentOS' Single Server CD.

Filed under
HowTos

First, an additional thank-you to Cake en Soda for pointing this out. This is a fun, low-level eye candy application that shouldn’t tax your system too much, and will give you something funky to show off to your Windows friends. And if you’re an anime fan, you’ll go nuts over it.

MaCoPiX puts a small animated character on your window frames.

n January 30th I installed Ubuntu Linux and decided to give it a serious try. I’ve heard that installing software on Linux is very difficult. That may have been true once but it is a myth today.

Linux

This is the promised followup to the recent article which basically establishes significant flaws in execution of the World Domination 201 plan which by all means seems to have started. The flaws are in the nature of the business model employed by the company who is apparently supposed to play a crucial role in this plan, Linspire.

What was particularly interesting (apart from the the fact that most of the people who didn’t use Ubuntu used Gentoo) was how Ubuntu, and as such Linux and free software, is becoming part and parcel of peoples lives.

Many people are starting to wonder about their non-Microsoft operating system options, especially given Windows Vista's hefty hardware demands, upgrade costs and license restrictions.
