For those of you that haven’t been following along at home, Oracle entered the Linux market - by proxy, at least - back in October.
Rather than create their own unique distribution, or tab an existing volume distribution that lacks enterprise heft (think Ubuntu), they chose to fork (my word, not theirs) Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux.
New products released Monday by the Linux Foundation will likely make life easier for software makers and promote further adoption of open-source software.
In spite of its maturity and benefits, however, open source software is still trying to win over Canadian and U.S. IT leaders as a credible alternative to their closed-source cousins.
nfo-Tech Research Group's recent survey of over 1,700 IT professionals tells the tale of a software licensing model and delivery paradigm that is slowly, if somewhat painfully, gaining acceptance.
As a system administrator it is often desirable to remotely connect to the users computer to see exactly what they are doing and possibly show them how to click on that funny penguin picture thingamabob so they can play Frozen Bubble. A single one line command in K/Ubuntu linux will connect to a remote computer and enable the display of the desired users X11 session.
Welcome back, Firefox fans! We've helped you get started on your journey to browser perfection with our list of 20 must-have Firefox extensions. But the ability to tweak your browser is a double-edged sword. There are extensions best avoided, including some of the most popular.
Version 5 of Red Hat's Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system hit the streets last month, complete with a truckload of updated open-source components and brand-new support for server virtualization—courtesy of the Xen hypervisor project.
SOME LOOSE change rattling around, so I'm thinking what use it could be put to. Amongst the things I thought of, try an objective Linux install!
Start the timer
It's not safe to read the news anymore. One minute you're enjoying a nice beverage at your computer, the next moment you're spewing liquid all over your monitor and keyboard after reading the latest ridiculous and hypocritical motion from The SCO Group.
Swiftfox is a Firefox-based browser, but there is one big difference between it and Firefox -- you can't share Swiftfox with a friend or place it in a repository of a Linux distribution because the Swiftfox license prohibits repackaging and redistribution.
Ubuntu Linux backer Canonical has launched a beta version of its Launchpad service, part of an effort to make open-source programming methods a better match for Microsoft.
Now that Debian 4.0, Etch, has finally arrived, what do people make of it?
Out in the blogosphere, some users like it. Over at Jed's Sandbox, this Gentoo Linux user finds that "Debian is stable, period."
Other users are also excited about a new and stable Debian. Still others, however, have found that Debian isn't as stable as they'd like.
I’m now running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn beta on my main blogging gear – an MSI S260 laptop - and I haven’t stopped saying “wow” since when I finished installing it late Monday night.
Over years size of software along with processing power of computers have increased considerably , i still remember the first Linux distribution i used was Red Hat Linux 5.2 Came on a single CD , now RHEL or Fedora comes on a DVD or 5-6 Cd's , even Windows has Grown Tremendously in size and memory requirement the latest Windows Visa requires almost 2GB of Ram and a fast processor to run flawlessly
Whether or not the GPL 3's controversial "grandfather" clause ever sees the light of day, it's sure to carry impacts of one sort or another, not just on Novell and Microsoft, but also on competitors, business customers, and smaller Linux toolmakers. Just about any way you flip the coin, somebody's bound to get short-changed(or to feel that way, anyhow).
The Aptitude package management system built into Debian, Ubuntu and other Debian-derived distributions is top quality and makes it really easy to get software from out there on to your machine from one convienient interface.
A few months late, Debian 4.0, aka Etch, has been released, but how many people actually will be running it?
- Its large user base. Because Ubuntu is so popular, it becomes even more popular. This viral marketing was the same thing that made YouTube successful.
- Hardware support. One of the most common complaints among new Linux users is that their new hardware is not supported by any Linux distribution. Well, with Ubuntu, hardware support is added within days of the hardware coming out.
The Desktop section of the Control Center focuses on the functionality and layout of the desktop(s), the taskbar, and the windows themselves, how they function, behave and what features are turned on or off. This section mostly covers functionality and focuses very little on the actual "eyecandy" experience of the system.
In the beginning…open source was pure and unadulterated. Over time, the idea of community-build software that is free and unfettered by sticky licensing terms and fees caught on with IT buyers, and the disruption of the old order began.
