Here are a few basic signs that it might be time to go outside for some fresh air.
* You become very, very confused when pressing the "tab" key does not fill in the rest of what you were typing.
* The phrase "man mount" does not strike you as particularly odd.
* When on your Windows partition you want to play a game, so you open up a command prompt and start typing "wine C:\Pro..."
I want to discuss a couple handy tricks that I learned today, while coding. If you’re a Vim user, you will probably find these helpful as well.
FON founder and CEO, Martin Varsavsky (my boss) sent the memo below to all employees.
As of today Fon will disengage from Microsoft and adopt Linux in the Ubuntu form as our operating system of choice.
A whole time ago I switched from IE to Firefox. I don’t know exactly when it happened but somehow it did and nowadays I almost never click that little blue E.
I woke up this morning and a terrible thought occurred to me. What if this whole Dell/Ubuntu deal doesn't work out?
Novatium, a Chennai-based company, which was co-founded by US-based Analog Devices chairman Ray Stata, Netcore Solutions managing director Rajesh Jain and professor Ashok Jhunjhunwala of IIT Madras, is hawking an up-and-running $100 (Rs 4,500) PC, based on a thin-client model.
ArchLinux or Arch for short is one of the uprising new distributions. Well, at least compared to old folks like Debian or Slackware it’s still fresh and shining . Arch is gaining new users and good reviews every day. Let’s find out why this is happening.
OpenSync is a syncing framework. It syncs data. The scope of OpenSync doesn't encompass application management, retrieving doodles (what would they sync with?), keeping accurate device backups, etc. These fall squarely in the device-specific handling category -- I'm not going to claim that KPilot does any of these well, though, except for retrieving doodles because Joerg wrote that code.
Just spent most of the day and quite a bit of yesterday porting a program Stew wrote for the secteam (called srpm) that builds a database of src.rpm files so you can do queries on source files (this is extremely useful for us in determining whether or not a vulnerable source file exists in any supported distros).
The small steps that Dell has taken toward offering desktop and notebook PCs preloaded with Ubuntu 7.04 could mean a giant leap forward for the viability of desktop Linux.
This marks my 261st blog entry as a Novell employee. It shall also mark my last. An operose decision, I resigned as Chief Architect of our Linux Desktop endeavor, effective today.
I decided a few months ago, when I set up a new Dell desktop machine, that Microsoft and I were about to part company. That happened when I was "invited" to "authenticate" my copy of Microsoft XP to be sure it was "genuine."
64 Studio is a GNU/Linux distribution tailor-made for digital content creation, including audio, video, graphics and publishing tools. A remix of Debian testing, it comes in both AMD64/Intel64 and 32-bit flavours, to run on nearly all PC hardware.
It emerged early on Thursday that UK customers would not be offered pre-installed Ubuntu for the time being. Later in the day, Dell's EMEA director of client marketing, Eric Greffier, elaborated further. Speaking to ZDNet UK he suggested that the greatest volume of responses to its Linux survey had come from the US, but he also pointed to wider considerations.
Part of the behind-the-scenes stuff that people don’t see is the coordination that goes on as part of our trademark approval process. Red Hat and Novell have been working closely with us for quite some time, but other distros have not been as involved. I was very fortunate to work with Alexander Sack of Ubuntu and Martynas Venckus of OpenBSD to get their distros in the same loop.
Dan Walsh will be presenting an overview of “What’s new with SELinux in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5″ at the Red Hat Summit on Wednesday May 9th at 3:00 PM in the “What’s New” Track. This article presents some of the material from that talk, and was written with frequent magazine contributor Len DiMaggio.
Software security? Do I have to?
EchoDitto helps its clients create online communities. It believes in open source software and relies heavily on the Drupal content management system both internally and for its customers. EchoDitto CTO and co-founder Justin Pinder says it's the community that makes open source invaluable.
The KDE desktop environment for Linux has a handy graphics tool for capturing screenshots called KSnapshot. This utility lets you make screenshots in any of 4 different capture modes and allows you to save the results as JPEG, PNG or XPM files.
Hallelujah! Linux on the desktop has finally arrived!
Or has it been here all along?
This week's mammothly hyped news that Dell would be shipping PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-loaded has been hailed by some as a momentous occasion for the Linux desktop. One might be tempted to think that no hardware vendor has ever offered Linux before.
