The security of data files on your computer is at risk, and not just because you are connected to the Internet. Anyone with physical access to your machine can bypass all passwords to gain entry to your hard disk with one simple command given to the bootloader. Fortunately, the popular GRand Unified Bootloader (GRUB) is equipped with security features to prevent such an 'attack.' It can password protect each entry of your boot menu.
SageTV is distributing its personal video recording (PVR) software on a Gentoo Linux installation CD. The company previously sold a Windows-based version of its Media Center software, while offering its Linux version only to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers). Additionally, the company is shipping a "place-shifting" add-on for both versions.
Linux continues to make highly visible inroads into IT infrastructure, with IDC reporting 14 consecutive quarters of double-digit growth in Linux server shipments through the third quarter of last year. Less visible to both IT professionals and casual observers alike is the equally impressive penetration of Linux in a wide range of client devices, from routers to firewalls, from private branch exchanges to voice-over-IP phones, from printers to imaging devices and from thin clients to smart mobile phones.
At the 2006 Linux/Open Source on Wall Street conference at New York City’s Roosevelt Hotel on Monday, Linux vendors such as Novell and Red Hat pushed the advantages of the technology ushered in by the XenSource open source product Xen 3.0.
Open-source software is everywhere, but how does a large company -- from its executive team down to its IT staff -- figure out what applications are right for its users while not endangering its core business?
WITH software at the heart of online and distance education, the value of open source software that is simple and robust is becoming increasingly apparent, according to Peter Hughes, co-ordinator of the media studies program at Victoria's La Trobe University.
At the 4th annual Linux Desktop Summit in San Diego yesterday, Jane Silber, the chief operating officer of Conanical, sat down to talk to Computerworld's Eric Lai about how the upcoming June release of Ubuntu 6.06 might appeal to corporate users, too.
Here's something nauseating. Linspire has announced at the 4th Annual Desktop Linux Summit their latest "We'd like to make money from the community's free stuff without honoring community values" strategy. They hope you'll help them compromise by contributing to Freespire, which the article describes as a "community-driven distro" that includes proprietary software. Um...what community is that?
Linux on the desktop is still mostly a pipe dream because few large organizations are ready to make the switch, but that didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm of proponents at the LinuxWorld conference in Boston two weeks ago.
Two weeks ago, you read about several apps which keep KDE 3.5 alive. Today's issue of the mini-series provides even more reasons to love KDE. Covered applications include Krita, the image and painting application, Guidance, a configuration tool, frontends to Beagle and finally Scribus, the Qt-based DTP application.
LGP agreed to publish the new game, Cold War by Mindware Studios. Linux Cold War is a mixed third-first person shooter similar to Splinter Cell and follows the story of a freelance journalist who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R.

Debates rage across the Internet about the comparative security of Microsoft Windows and Linux-based operating systems. Many people have vested and biased interests in their positions on the matter. Misconceptions born of incomplete knowledge and logical fallacies contribute to the confusion and the heat of the debate. Advertising campaigns attempt to cast their sponsors in the best possible light, and partisan studies use massaged statistical data to produce apparently authoritative and objective, but ultimately no less biased and suspicious, facts to bolster arguments.
If you try to find some zingy Mark Twain or Dorothy Parker quote to open an article on shortcuts in OpenOffice.org, you'll find that there's just not much there. Few people of wit have chosen to opine on shortcuts. Those who have done so tend to think shortcuts are the path straight to hell. I, on the other hand, think they're grrrreat! At least, the OpenOffice.org shortcut features are. I'll go over two of my favorites in this article.
Yesterday TechNewsWorld published an opinion piece authored by Rob Enderle where he opines, “Why Linux May Never Be a True Desktop OS”. This is a rebuttal to that article.
Never forget that while he was unable to right Sun in recent years, McNealy wasn't just an industry giant. He changed the IT world forever.
In 1982, Scott McNealy founded Sun Microsystems with three graduate student friends -- Andy Bechtolsheim, Bill Joy, and Vinod Khosla from Stanford University.
I doubt they knew they were making history.
Open-Xchange, Inc. today released a comprehensive feature update for the community edition of Open-Xchange Server -- adding more than 100 improvements in the usability and integration capabilities of the leading open source collaboration software and also released the core content under a Creative Commons Deed.
The Free Standards Group is due to launch version 3.1 of its Linux Standards Base, delivering the first fruits of its LSB Desktop Project to create new standards for Linux on the desktop.
