SCO Group shares plummeted by nearly 40 per cent to $1.20 on Friday after a judge upheld an earlier ruling throwing out most of the company's legal case against IBM.
A few years back I stumbled across Flightgear. It is a free flight simulator, and seems to offer a pretty compelling experience. Although it intrigued me, I had no interest in learning to fly, so it washed right over me. Well, recently, I have been considering learning to fly, so I started looking into Flightgear. You know, its a stunning project.
Next April, the Ubuntu Foundation will complete three years and six releases of its GNU/Linux distribution. It will also be the point at which the project begins to acquire a distinctly commercial hue.
For three months, Halamka ditched his Windows laptop. He replaced it first with a MacBook running OS X. Then he spent a month using a Lenovo ThinkPad X41 running a dual-boot configuration of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation and Red Hat Fedora Core. Finally, he took up a Dell D420 subnotebook running Microsoft's Windows XP. After evaluating all three to determine which worked best for him, he plans to begin testing his preferred setup with users, most of whose desktops currently run Windows.
A friend asked me a question yesterday that I couldn't answer, so I did some research to see if I could find one. The question was: In the Novell-Microsoft deal, what happens at the end of the 5-year term? If you as an individual programmer write code, contribute it, and it's covered by the patent agreement during the five years, what happens to it afterward? Is that contributed code still covered? Are you?
The long awaited update to pclos .93a has been a long time in the making, but today Texstar posted a bit of information to whet your appetite. Originally projected to be released around Christmas, no hint of a release date was given, but many components are in place and others are being worked on.

The Free Software Foundation acts as the benevolent force guiding the computer industry.

The latest version of NVClock (v0.8 Beta 2) as well as the CVS version support overclocking the NV GPU core and video memory. Other features include card information, OpenGL/display settings, hardware monitoring of both fan speeds and die temperatures, fan speed control, pipeline modding (GeForce 6 series), and PCI id modding.
You would think that find a good video encoding app would be easy. Solid command line tools like transcode, FFmpeg, and MEncoder do exist, but readily available graphical apps are hard to come by. Frustrated with the dedicated alternatives, I turned to Avidemux.
Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. This article is about compiling a kernel on SuSE systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there.
At some point Linux users may have to dabble with GRUB. I know this from personal experience when I trashed my Ubuntu install a few months ago.
