I’ve taken a look at several articles on Windows Vista’s proposed anti-piracy technology, and I am quite pleased with it. Why? Because it will force thousands of people to migrate to free Operating Systems and free software. Linux just so happens to be the most popular free (in both senses of the word) Operating System. But why will this occur? Let me explain.
The $100 laptops planned for children around the world might turn out to be as revolutionary for their security measures as for their low-cost economics.
Microsoft Corp. today released what it expects to be the final release of Windows Vista before the operating system is sent to manufacturing for distribution.
I've mentioned here before that one of my favorite versions of Linux for basic computer people is Mepis. Mepis has a very familiar feel to WinXP.
Novell hopes its SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED) will tempt everyday computer owners to abandon Windows and switch to a newer, cheaper and supposedly better alternative.
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in the Linux 2.6 Kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users and malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
In July, Konsole author Lars Doelle posted a note on the MotorolaFans.com forum about two programs that appear to violate the GNU General Public License (GPL), under which Konsole is licensed. GPL violations are nothing new, but in this case Doelle has not only put the violators on notice, he's also telling users to stop using the offending programs as well.
A dual mode phone which runs on the Linux operating system will be put on sale early next year by D-Link. The V-CLICK will switch between Wi-Fi and GSM or GPRS networks at the click of a button, says D-Link, and will be 'unlocked', so users should be able to use it with any SIM card.
Songbird is shaping up to be an amazing media player. It’s not only got audio and video capability (with a HUGE range of media types) but it’s built on the Mozilla engine, meaning it’s also a web browser. Here’s how to set it up on your Ubuntu box, add it to your applications menu and generally enjoy it.

After several years of waiting the commercial 2D-Mmorpg Tibia now offers a linux-client in beta-status. They used to have a badly written linux-client years ago, but then abandoned support for it and now again offer a brand new one.
Systems administrators can use a number of programs to maintain files in a UNIX® system from the command line. In this tutorial, you'll experiment with commands, such as cd, cp, and tar, to navigate a UNIX file system from the command line and work with files and directories. You'll also learn how to deal with file permissions and perform simple input/output.
Like millions of other people, I, too, am fascinated by Apple's iPod. Some critics might try to say that it's just another music player, but its appeal goes much deeper than that. The iPod is the definition of modern pop culture, and whether they actually need one or not, people want to get a hold of them because they're, well, cool. Is there anything wrong with that?
cron-apt Contains a tool that is run by a cron job at regular intervals. By default it just updates the package list and download new packages without installing. You can instruct it to run anything that you can do with apt-get (or aptitude).
Canonical is the 65-employee start-up behind a popular version of Linux called "Ubuntu". The company is betting that it can win a place in the market using a strategy that dominant Linux seller Red Hat has dropped.
Debian does not provide an initscript for iptables by default. This does however not mean that it is impossible to get firewall rules to survive a reboot.
AN INSURANCE COMPANY acting on behalf of Melvin Young has sued Microsoft because his house suffered an extensive fire because an Xbox malfunctioned on January 5th last year.
I've been using Linux for well over 4 years now as my primary OS. I started way back with Slackware, and to this day I can't stop slackin. With the newly released Slackware 11, let's see how much has changed since I first fell head over heals for the distro so many years ago.
In an ironic twist, the anticipated price of the 2007 model of the “$100 laptop” will be $138. Announced last month by Nicholas Negroponte, the chairman of the One Laptop Per Child association, the projected price will drop to $100 by the end of 2008 and $50 in 2010.
The announcement came at the second annual AMD Global Vision Conference in Pasadena, Calif.
Ralph Griswold, creator of SNOBOL and Icon, former staff member at Bell Labs and Professor of Computer Science at the University of Arizona, died 4 October 2006, losing a bout of cancer.
Five months ago to the day, we had compared the open-source and fglrx display drivers here at Phoronix for the ATI R200 generation components. However, how do the drivers compare for the newer R300 generation components? We at Phoronix have analyzed the open-source and official closed-source drivers and have some interesting results to share today.
