blog.mypapit.net: I’ve always wanted to try and take panoramic photographs using my dad’s Nikon Coolpix 5200. Using a tripod, I took up to 3 sets of photographs with the help of Nikon built-in panorama helper function. To my delight I found Hugin!
Red Hat Magazine: SSH (Secure SHell) is well known to Linux administrators as the de facto method for connecting to other systems. An administrator typically runs SSH to login to another system, often to run a shell on the remote host and issue commands. SSH, however, has many extra tricks up its sleeve beyond simply securing a connection.
Also: Automatic SSH login
LWN: Sixth Floor Labs LLC has announced their existence as a Linux game development company. "Founded by Ethan Glasser-Camp and Carl Li, the company aims to improve Linux's desktop feasibility through the creation of high-quality games."
wired blog: It may be almost a year late, but Flock, the browser dedicated to social networking, has finally released version 1.0. The results are surprisingly compelling.
computerworld: Mozilla Corp. is nearing a release of the first beta of Firefox 3.0, which is several months behind schedule, making a final version of the open-source browser this year unlikely.
wired blog: Hans Reiser, the popular open-source Linux engineer, traumatized his 5-year-old young son with violent video games and horror movies, prosecutor Paul Hora told jurors in the opening of Reiser's murder trial.
globes.co.il: Software giant Novell Inc. (Nasdaq:NOVL) has announced a global redeployment, with a focus on ten large European countries. The company will also close direct activity in other countries in the region, including Israel, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, and Turkey.
zdnet blogs: Values are important, in a business sense. When your values and those of your customers are in sync, you have a great opportunity for growth. They’re also important politically. They define the boundaries for internal debate, and establish markers for debate with opponents.
linuxworld: In an e-mail, Corbet said that despite "years of effort," Reiser4 has still not made it into the Linux kernel and the future of the technology does not look good. "There are still a couple of people putting some volunteer effort into Reiser4, so it could, just maybe, still make it into the mainline [kernel] someday."
tech.co.uk: Ubuntu 7.10 (codenamed 'Gutsy Gibbon') could arguably be called the 'bling' release of the world's most popular Linux distribution. Swish 3D desktop effects, coupled with a new display configuration tool, make eye-candy the focus. Could this be the version that makes you switch from Windows or Mac OS X?
451 CAOS Theory: I was disappointed when the Open Document Format (ODF) suffered a significant setback with the Massachussetts defeat in July. However, I was encouraged again recently as ODF continued to gain support, both in use and backers. We just got a report on a variety of vendors and products incorporating the format.
onlamp.com: X Window, X11 or "X," as it is known for short, provides the programming framework and the underlying runtime system for most Unix and Linux-based network-transparent windowing implementations. On its own, X Window requires, but does not provide software to manage and display flexible GUI elements, e.g., windows.
ITPro: Debian is both the most conservative and the most radical of Linux distributions, resolute and true to the ideals of the movement from which it sprang. The Debian project reaches back to a time when Linux was young and easy, when real programmers rode on the metal and coded in the buff, and a couple of floppies was sufficient to carry Linux, GNU and all the tools that were required to get a system up and running on a 386.
gnuski.blogspot: After a long weekend of waiting, my Asus EeePC 701 has arrived! I was at work and I had a small crowd around me the moment it came in the door. Everyone there said "wow, its smaller than I thought!" and I had to agree, sorta. But I kinda knew how small it would be since I've been following this for a long time, and waiting for a similar device for *years* now (really).
linuxgeeksunited.blogspot: Since the early days of Linux, whenever new users and others, would go to boards and forums seeking information on a specific topic, there would be the inevitable reply "rtfm".
sfgate.com: Computer programmer Hans Reiser plans to take the stand in his own defense to deny he murdered his estranged wife, his attorney said Monday.
penguin pete: ITWire has this little ditty in their open source blog, going "tsk-tsk" at the Linux crowd for being such a tenacious little bunch. So Varghese asks "Are Linux users really a feral bunch?" No, Mr. Varghese, it's worse than that. And calling us "loose-lipped or juvenile" is also missing the point.
iTWire: Well the Linux desktop is certainly here and I can prove it because as of today I'm officially an Ubuntu user and even though things aren't perfect, I feel like I've finally escaped from jail. Those of you contemplating the move from Windows, however, had better be prepared to make some compromises and even a few sacrifices.
A quick question to help shed some light on this topic. You needn't bother reading my blabble, just the usual rantings but I would like to see some views on why this whole area generates so much emotion when basically every distribution is a Yum or Apt away from being exactly the same as the next.
ruminations: Once upon a time there was no such thing as a live desktop. But that time is already way behind us and more and more Linux distributions come with a live boot option. DesktopBSD gives you the option either to go to the install menu or first go to the live desktop. Today I took a closer look at that option.
