Linux has always been suspect when it comes to automotive applications.
The general belief was that safety-critical automotive applications required a deterministic, real-time operating system. Linux just didn't cut it for telematics or under-the-hood applications. OEMs relied on proprietary OS companies for their solutions.
Lenovo Group will immediately begin selling and supporting a high-end model of its ThinkPad laptop with Novell's latest desktop version of SUSE Linux installed, the two companies announced recently. The new laptop is aimed at electronics engineers and chip designers.
To help spur the creation of a lot more applications for Linux, the Free Standards Group (FSG) and technical publishing firm O'Reilly Media have launched the Linux Standard Base (LSB) Developer Network (LDN), a developer's network loosely modeled after the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN).
The Spanish KDE developers together with HispaLinux and ZaragozaWireless are organising a KDE Conference in Zaragoza, Spain on 4th and 5th of November. The talks will be in Spanish and the entrance is free.
Today I successfully installed Vista on my ibm X60 after obtaining a copy of RC2. I also installed Office 2007 Beta. Now I’ve got a triple boot IBM x60 that’s almost too cool for me to type on.

I just read this article in Frobes.com, the article intentionally tries to portray Richard Stallman and te FSF, in a negative light. This became clear to me in the first few paragraphs when the author refers to Stallman and the FSF as “He and a band of anarchist acolytes”. At another point it says:
Extend the Apache Geronimo application you created in Part 2 of this six-part tutorial series. In this installment, you'll learn how to let the integrated technologies -- like Spring Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and Spring Data Access Objects (DAO) APIs --
When I wrote about the wrangling over the GNU GPLv3 licence a month back, it provoked a lively conversation in the comments. Given this evident passion among readers, I thought it would be interesting to ask the top hackers - the ones actually involved in the discussions - for their thoughts on the matter.
Cron is one of those little programs that can change the world. It’s a scheduling progam, meaning that you can give it instructions such as ‘at 10:45am on every Monday run this program’ and it will faithfully wait until the appointed time to do what you asked it. Why is this useful?
GnoTime, the GNOME Time Tracker, is a lightweight task/time tracking tool. It's easy to use and not overloaded with project management features, but it suffers from weak reporting tools.
Communication is important to most people. Since the late 1990s, Instant Messaging (IM) has become an increasingly popular way to stay in touch with friends and loved ones. We’ll be covering the most-used mainstream IM clients and services so that you can decide who’s using what and which one you should use.
Although still not announced officially, tarballs are beginning to hit the mirrors. This release was expected to be announced tomorrow. Get yours HERE.

With all the hoopla and wahoo getting passed around like a hot potato, it can be difficult to keep things in perspective. It's also easy for little details to get lost in the shuffle. Have no fear, though, because GamePro, is to the rescue with a handy cheat sheet of little known facts and new information about Sony's Cadillac of a console.
It's been 10 years since a barefoot Marc Andreessen graced the cover of Time magazine and trumpeted how the browser would make the operating system irrelevant. By uttering the unthinkable, he brought the ire of Bill Gates down on Netscape. Now, Netscape as a Web powerhouse is gone and Andreessen is no longer a magazine cover boy. Yet his vision of computing through a browser window turns out to have been prescient, if premature.
SSH allows you to forward ports from one machine to another, tunnelling traffic through the secure SSH connection. However, forwarding an individual port still requires you to change where your program connects, telling it to use a non-standard port on localhost rather than the standard port on the remote machine, and it requires a separate port forward for each machine you want to access. Dynamic port forwarding via SOCKS provides a more convenient alternative.
When you hear the name Slackware, you are at once transported to a world where Linux users feel more at home in setting the configurations by editing ordinary text files. In fact the credo of Slackware is to keep it as simple as possible.
Kenneth Granerud has announced a brand new release of Wolvix, a desktop-oriented live CD based on Slackware Linux: "After nearly five months of development, Wolvix 1.0.5 is finally ready for release."
Now we’re thinking of having a “user and business” conference, aimed at bringing together the people who deploy and manage Ubuntu in the real world (well, in the USA in particular, but let’s think globally) with those who help to produce it. The big question is - who would want to come?
