To broaden or not broaden the GNU/Linux user base. This topic has generated a ton of discussion and emotion within the community. Whatever your particular stance, one thing is guaranteed. Change! And human beings are typically adverse to Change!
It only took a few days, but already the Linux PS3 has enabled piracy. As the months continue, users are certain to find other ways to exploit Sony's new console.
I have made a kind of research on this issue and here are some ideas on that. Recently Microsoft concluded an agreement with Novell. The agreement’s main aim is support of Linux based applications in the Windows environment. Why would Microsoft need Linux?
Last month's announcement that Microsoft and Novell will cooperate to promote harmonious interconnection between the Windows and Linux operating systems used on servers has produced a spate of commentary, much of it along the lines of "what are they really up to?"
Recently, as noted here, the IBM T41 has been through a raft of distros. It/I has/have settled in on Fedora Core 6 for now, although OpenSUSE 10.2 is probably in it's near future. All part of a search for a perfect laptop distro that can run Evolution decently enough to connect to the corporate MS Exchange server and read my calendar therein. Even though it does not have the Evolution requirement (all Gmail needs is Firefox), my personal IBM X30 Linux laptop runs Ubuntu 6.10 at the moment.
Previous to today's encounter with Pardus Calisan, we had never heard of this GNU/Linux distribution. The Pardus vision is to have a distribution in the vertical markets with differing versions, a sustainable organization with its own resources to run this operating system, and its developers making code contributions to Linux and the open-source society. With that said, we decided to take a look at this Turkish distribution. Those Screenshots.
A group of students at the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse were given a choice between the more traditional style java based projects usually offered by the University and a KDE project, and chose to work on a KDE project as part of their course of study.
Issue number 20, December 2006, of TUX now is available. Some highlights include TUX People: Pamela Jones, Unreal Tournament 2004: Linux vs. Windows, Install and manage your printer under Linux, and Customizing KDE for the Holiday Season. Download Here.
Pardus is a Turkish distribution that comes with KDE as the default desktop. It is however not just another pack of known open source apps. Pardus comes with its own, original GUI system installer, a package management system — PISI and system settings applet — TASMA, as well as a few additional goods. This review is based on my experience with Pardus Linux 2007 Beta 2, which can be downloaded from the official project’s FTP.
Yesterday I promised I would also include instructions on how to setup IMWheel for support for 5 button mouse within Nautilus file manager. These instructions are a little more detailed and require a touch of customization.
bangalore is a beautiful city if you keep your eyes on the right bits of architecture, the trees and plants that grow. the foss.in event itself was really well put together. this year it was kept highly technical so the audience was correspondingly technical. it's really nice to be able to present kde4 these days compared to, say, 6 months ago.
Nobody wants to use an operating system. They just want it be able to run the software they need. Therefore, its very important for an OS to have killer apps. Here’s a list of software that make Linux worth using.
We've mastered yesterday openSUSE 10.2 RC5 and declared it as
goldmaster. Looking at the comments on the opensuse mailing list and on the
websites I hear that 10.2 could become a "great distribution".
Recently for some reason I thought about trying to get some more use out of an ancient notebook. Almost 8 years old, with only 64 MB of memory and 4 GB of hard drive and a slow CPU -- in this day and age, anyhow: AMD-K6 475 -- it hasn't seen much use of late. On the other hand, Knoppix has been really impressive the last couple of years, including excellent hardware-recognition. Ought to be a snap to install it, particularly on something this old.

From the desktop to the server room, there is a place for Linux in nearly any educational institution, large or small. The flexibility, stability, and cost savings Linux offers is compelling. With the right skills and careful planning, things that were impossible become possible, and formerly daunting tasks become simple.
Open source development is influencing phenomena far beyond software, including manufacturing processes, classroom teaching, and the types of media now emerging online, said CollabNet CTO Brian Behlendorf, best-selling author Thomas L. Friedman, and other members of a panel of business and technology visionaries.
Ubuntu linux has a rich set of commands for getting system info. One of the useful pieces of information that a system administrator might need is to know what the overall system load on a server is.
Since I'm starting some real work on my final school project, I want to install a Ubuntu development server here at home. In this first part I will show you how to install Subversion over WebDAV. In part 2 I will tell you how to install Trac on top of your Subversion repositories on your Ubuntu development server.
You want games? Whoa, Nelly! The GP2X plays straight ports of PC games such as "Quake" and "Doom," plus it can use emulators such as MAME, SNES, Atari, Sega Megadrive, Genesis and GameGear. The GP2X file archive has hundreds of free games, while sites such as ROMNation offer thousands more.
