All the packages that SUSE supplies are offered in RPM format. RPM now stands for the RPM Package Manager. Its original name was the Red Hat Package Manager, and it was developed originally by Red Hat, but it has been widely adopted by other distributions.
These days, lots of companies are stretching their hardware and energy dollars by consolidating print, file, DNS, and web servers on virtualisation platforms such as VMware. But not many companies boast of running their entire production infrastructure on virtual machines. An exception is Arvato Mobile.
The "Great Man" theory of history is usually attributed to the Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle, who wrote that "the history of the world is but the biography of great men." He believed that it is the few, the powerful and the famous who shape our collective destiny as a species. That theory took a serious beating this year.

Good news for Dell Inspiron Users: Your notebook is completely supported in OpenSuse 10.2. In OpenSuse 10.2, I didnt have to do any special configuration at all to get my hardware running.
I talk quite a bit about Linux going "mainstream" in this blog. The mainstream thought on Mainstream Adoption is that anything "mainstream" is something that is familiar to the masses.
When I posted on what Gaël Duval told Graham Morrison about Ulteo Connected Desktop, he promptly reacted by saying that Ulteo Connected Desktop is «only a part of the Ulteo system.» So we have to sit and wait before judging. Now that Ulteo Sirius Alpha1 was released...
In the spring of 2006 Mandriva decided that one of it's founders needed to find a new career, in turn Gael Duval was put out of work. Not to be held down, Gael decided to create a new Linux distribution with his own vision. The results of that goal is Ulteo, of which the first Alpha was released on December 6th.
I ended my previous article (Linux on the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet) by saying that the release of the OS 2006 prepared the way for some serious VOIP work. The 770 can now make SIP-based VOIP phone calls and is more like what you'd expect from Nokia--a phone!
The tasks in this article are common ones that you may need to do when settingup your system and beginning your new life as the system administrator of your own Linux system.
The latest release of the SuSE Linux distribution was quietly made public about a week ago. Many feared for the distribution’s future with members of the Open Source community disgruntled by the Novell-Microsoft deal. Despite these fears, a friend of mine and I eagerly awaited the University of Stellenbosch’s mirror to get the DVD iso and downloaded it a day or two ago.
Most of Raleigh’s 400 Red Hat employees gathered for the celebration on Tuesday, clapping as they watched a live video feed displaying their boss Matthew Szulik ringing the bell to open trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Red Hat’s move to the NYSE is part of its response to growing threats from giant Oracle and the recently announced Microsoft-Novell alliance.

Penguins must be flying high. People are flocking to see them on the big screen, they star in ads all over the little screen and they're splashed across advertising circulars and packaging for a scad of products.
As we close out the year, it is instructive to ponder last month's pro-Linux announcement by Microsoft. It tells us a lot about how the company's thinking is evolving with respect to competition. And, more importantly, what that might mean to customers in the coming year.
“Woe to you, Oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short…
Let him who hath understanding reckon the distro of the beast,
for it is a Linux distro,
its distro is Ubuntu Satanic Edition.”
The pace of change in the open source software business is likely to accelerate in 2007 as developers climb up the software stack from the operating system and databases to applications.
