It's not every day that you see a Microsoft employee demonstrating Microsoft software running natively on Linux. Yet that's exactly what happened at AJAXWorld here, as Brad Abrams, group program manager at Microsoft for ASP.NET AJAX (codenamed Atlas) did today.
3Dconnexion has released beta Linux drives for its SpaceNavigator control device, enabling users of Maya 8 and 8.5 on that platform to manipulate objects in 3D.
The driver is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Linux (Redhat Enterprise Linux WS 3, SuSE 9.0 or greater).
Proposed a few years ago by Vladimir Vukicevic and Stuart Parmenter, support for Animated Portable Network Graphics (APNG) images has finally landed on the trunk, Mozilla’s main development code.
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.
Some OpenOffice.org macros have rudimentary dialog boxes that allow you to define a few parameters. If you're ready to take your macro programming skills to a new level, you can learn how to create graphical interfaces for your macros. Once you know how to do that, you can build advanced macros that are close to full-blown applications.
The KDE Community and the release team have put together a release plan for the long anticipated version 4.0, which is planned to be released in October 2007. KDE 4.0 will be a major milestone for the Free Desktop, as it offers a new foundation and set of frameworks that will shape the desktop user experience for years to come.
This tutorial describes how to install the 32 bit Linux Testdrive of SAP Netweaver 2004 on SUSE Linux 9.3 and enable BW functionality. It goes step by step through the distribution installation, environment setup and tasks that need to be done in order to set everything up.
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.
vi editor is something that UNIX newbies often like to criticize. Until they learn it well and understand why vi is vi and not something else.It is a marvellous creation of Bill Joy and one cannot but think of it without a feeling of magic and spookiness.
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. The truth is, installing software in Ubuntu is a far better and easier process that it has ever been in Windows.
As part of Mozilla Corporation's ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 22.214.171.124 and Firefox 126.96.36.199 are now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux for free download from http://getfirefox.com.
Due to the security fixes, we strongly recommend that all Firefox users upgrade to these latest releases.
I am always getting suggestions on what the next Distro we should be reviewing. Many tell me to do the majors, such as Gentoo or Debian. While I agree that many people would like to see these, most newbies to Linux really should stay away from these in my humble opinion.
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.
When Apple introduced “sleep” especially on its laptops, it raised the bar in the industry because people loved the feature. The feature existed before but Apple really made it one of the reasons why someone would want a Mac laptop.
Are you looking for a Windows alternative for serious office work? 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. Scot Finnie, Computerworld's online editorial director, has already examined using Mac OS X in the workplace.
