Open source software will serve at the heart of a project management system developed in a humanitarian effort to design housing for the needy. Built on the drupal open source content management system, the Open Architecture Network Web-based system enables collaboration between building architects and designers.
Mark Shuttleworth has developed an exceptional Linux distribution, Ubuntu. Mark spends much of his time, however, deriding Red Hat, his biggest Linux competitor, for waxing proprietary. I'm sure that's PR Mark would prefer to pay to bury.
Mozilla Corp. will relaunch its popular Firefox add-on site Monday by culling the several thousand extensions listed for its open-source browser to just a couple of hundred.
The call for participation for the Ubuntu Live conference will close next Wednesday the 14th at 11:59pm PST (Thursday the 15th at 7:59am GMT).
Microsoft's deal late last year with Novell may have set a record for shortest honeymoon, with the two companies publicly bickering within days. Nonetheless, Microsoft top lawyer Brad Smith hails the deal as a landmark that still holds the potential of bringing together the open-source and commercial software business models.
Following the release of Linux Version 2.6.20 a few days ago the development phase of the next kernel version has now taken off. Whereas Linus Torvalds during the last few days has already integrated some 800 patches into his developer kernel that will lead to 2.6.21, Andrew Morton has now informed the kernel developers about his plans for the next kernel version.
On day 3, I ran into another installer error, which, apparently is quite common judging from the comments here, and in other forums. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I grabbed the mini-disk, and went to work.
A lot of people have bemoaned the lack of women participating in open source communities, but Sulamita Garcia is one of the few who have stepped up to do something about it. A Slackware user from Florianopolis, Brazil, Garcia has been heading up LinuxChix Brazil for four years.
The first project I would like to talk about is OpenOEM, which aims to build and sell a line of computers consisting entirely of “Open Hardware” - that is, hardware whose documentation is under an Open Source licence, allowing the public to attempt to build upon its specifications and build their own version of the hardware, if they wish.
Marc Fleury, the founder of open source Java application server maker JBoss, is leaving Red Hat, which acquired JBoss last year, according to a JBoss spokesperson.

STUX is a Slackware/Knoppix-powered live CD with the Morphix-like ability to build a custom ISO. While the combination has high potential, this implementation leaves something to be desired. It's worth the experience if you enjoy using new distributions, but if you're looking to replace your current desktop OS, look elsewhere.
Robertson is the chief executive officer of San Diego-based Linspire, a company that produces a license-free desktop Linux operating system that is gaining market share on Microsoft Windows.
When it comes to open-sourcing Solaris and Java, patents and politics are leading Sun Microsystems toward a change of heart. The question is which open-source license should govern the building of projects out of the company's technology crown jewels.
KDE is a powerful Free Software graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix workstations. It combines ease of use, contemporary functionality, and outstanding graphical design with the technological superiority of the Unix operating system.
After a long and arduous journey that included a suspended validation last year, the Open Source Software Institute (OSSI) has announced that OpenSSL has regained its FIPS 140-2 validation and is now available for download. The validation process, which normally lasts a few months, took an astounding five years to complete, and those involved with the projects say they are already devising ways to avoid such long delays in future validations.
Portable Document Format (PDF) files have become somewhat of a de-facto standard for representing fixed layout 2D documents, and their use and versatility have grown over the past decade. As demand increases for this format, many are wondering, what tools can be used to create PDFs with free software? Fortunately, there are a variety of free software that is available to author PDF files.
Let’s face it; MySQL is a fabulous database engine. Not only is it free, it’s small, powerful and easy to drive. It also runs happily on free operating systems and so it can be used to create incredibly cost-effective database servers.

The marketing propaganda touting Microsoft's new Vista operating system as "the most secure version of Windows yet" has done nothing to stop both white and black hat hackers from discovering Vista vulnerabilities. Said one very irritated and frustrated Vista early adopter, "I should have bought a Mac."
I have strong reservations about Ubuntu, its motives and the way it is shaping up. The deal its parent company, Canonical, has just struck with commercial Linux company Linspire (formerly Lindows) to use commercial software from the Click and Run warehouse owned by Linspire is just the latest indication that, with Ubuntu, all is not as it seems.
Aging Linux and Unix systems have prompted car rental company Thrifty Inc. to modernize its server platforms and direct investment towards more innovative applications. In doing so, we looked at Solutions First, and one of its recommendations was to move away from Red Hat to Ubuntu Linux, which we did.
