As I sit here plugging away on this XP box I started giving some thought to just what I'd have to do to switch over entirely to Linux. I've tried out Ubuntu on a 2nd machine of mine and I have to tell you that I really like it. It's fast, it looks good, there's plenty of free software modules available for it and it just plain works. So why, you ask haven't I switched my main machine over?
Can a game company make a profit producing commercial offerings for Linux? Two cross-platform offerings that run on Linux are hoping to show that it can be done.
Linux was founded on the command line. If you look around a little bit and find some of the Linux "old school" guys, you'll find that they tend to shy away from the gui. Linux has really stepped it up a notch visually.
Most of the big tech stories of 2006 have already gotten far too much coverage. Does anyone not know that HP hit a serious bump in the road this year due to its snooping on employees and board members? Other stories – with far more long-term importance – have gotten much less ink.
Will 2007 be the year of the Free Software desktop? David Chisnall's answer is "probably not, but who cares?" Microsoft won the desktop war; can Free Software win the next one?
Open-source software in schools will be the driving force for Gordon Brown’s proposed ‘Knowledge Economy’, it was claimed today. The claim comes from Bluefountain, after massive cross-party backbench support for a change in government policy for IT in education.
Dries Buytaert, the founder and maintainer of the excellent web CMS, Drupal, talks today about Sharepoint 2007. He calls it (and its "ilk" of software) "Collaboration Management Software," instead of "Content Management Software." I like that distinction.
Genealogy is a burgeoning hobby and to help the home genealogist, a whole range of software is available. Much of it is commercial but here I’ll look at one of the most popular free software options—GRAMPS. Charting your family history needn’t mean compromising on licensing.
VectorLinux, a lightweight, fast Linux distribution for the x86 platform, just released its new version 5.8 this week. This user-friendly distribution makes the average computer user's life easy by supplying office software, Web browsing, photo editing, and archiving on top of a fast, clean Xfce window manager.
The GNOME camp has pushed out a new development release in time for the holidays. GNOME 2.17.4 is another test release in the road to GNOME 2.18.0 in March of next year. Many packages were updated from GNOME 2.17.3, so this afternoon we had set out on a GARNOME adventure to capture some new GNOME screenshots to see how GNOME 2.17 is shaping up. Overall it looked quite well except for a few more bugs than normal.
One of the virtues of Linux is that there's pretty much a version of it for everybody. From regular Ubuntu to Gentoo to Berry Linux to Fedora to Damn Small Linux, there's something out there for virtually all types of Linux users. So I was intrigued to discover that there is a Christian version of the extremely popular Ubuntu Linux distribution.
I recently read a story that asked, "Has the Desktop Linux Bubble Burst?" Burst!? No, I don't think so. Actually, it still isn't even half as big as it will be when it's full.
A little while ago, I decided that I would never, ever have a desk ever again. I bought a laptop, and after a week I promised I would never, ever buy anything but a laptop and would change my working area in my house. From our latest poll, it's clear that I am not alone. Where does this leave Linux?
Forget polar bears. This winter's "it" critter is unquestionably the penguin. America's love affair with penguins stretches from Hollywood to publishing to the Internet.

The defense lawyer for Oakland computer programmer Hans Reiser tried to raise doubts today about DNA evidence that prosecutors believe connects him to the death of his wife Nina Reiser, who was last seen alive Sept. 3.
Linux desktops should receive general market acceptance. But they don't. The reason: The tyranny of the installed base, among other things.
Release Date: December 21, 2006
- Added support for GeForce 8800 GTS and GeForce 8800 GTX boards.
Running a Microsoft Windows NT server these days is a brave (or, perhaps, stupid) thing to do: Support for the product has finished, and as far as Microsoft is concerned, the product should be put in a rest home for retired software. There are many reasons to consider migrating some or all of your data center servers to Linux, and we won't go into them here. But if you do decide to go open source, some ways of going about it are better than others.
