Open source personal video recorder (PVR) software like MythTV has acquired a reputation for being difficult to install and maintain, so you might think that a proprietary PVR app would enjoy an advantage. I put SageTV's Linux media center software through its paces, and I can tell you that it, too, requires commitment. If you stick with it, though, and can outfit your system correctly, it might be worth the $80 price tag, despite a slew of little annoyances.
Now that I have been using Ubuntu Linux for about 6 months pretty much full time, here is my list of software I cannot seem to replace:
Everyone loves IRC (stands for Internet Relay Chat; a kind of group chat room often used by open source/free software projects and developers, or as support channels), unfortunately the open source IRC clients out there are often hidden away. In this week's article, I'm going to show you how to set up your IRC client in under 5 minutes using only free software.
OpenOffice.org has rejected accusations that its open-source application suite is at least as susceptible to attack as Microsoft's Office in a terse statement posted on its Web site.

We’ve been using ReiserFS as our default installation file system for the last 6-7 years now, and it’s served us well in that time. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with it, some purely technical, some more related to maintenance. I’ll outline a few of the larger issues and offer my solution as a conclusion.
The Amarok Project is giving away an iPod Nano during its current fundraiser to celebrate the month of Roktober. Anyone that gives the equivalent of $10 or more is automatically entered in a random drawing to win a 2GB iPod Nano.
Last week we announced Mandriva's brand new distribution, and now Mandriva Linux 2007 is finally available to the public. The key innovation of Mandriva Linux 2007 is the spectacular AIGLX and Xgl 3D-accelerated desktop. Mandriva is the only distribution to provide both technologies and is particularly happy to have achieved this major breakthrough in desktop appearance.
Here are some basic commands to get you started in the wonderful world of Linux and other UNIX variants. All of these commands should work from your command prompt (regardless which shell you’re using).

Super Grub Disk (SGD) is a specialty rescue CD for emergency repairs on boot sectors. Despite its name, SGD not only manipulates the Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB), but also works with the content of other master boot records as well.
You may not know what Linux is, but there's a good chance you use it every day. It's not a household cleaner or a prescription drug, but a form of software that is spreading beyond corporate computer networks into electronic devices such as personal digital assistants, TiVo boxes, navigation systems and home routers. Before long, it could be in your cell phone, too.
We are proud to announce that Slackware Linux version 11.0 has been finally released; it took some time but is well worth the wait. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4, XFCE 188.8.131.52, glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, and X11R6.9.0 from X.Org.
