There has been a lot of hoo-hah recently regarding the pros and cons of certain aspects of the drafts of Version 3 of the GNU General Public License from the Free Software Foundation. The originator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds himself, is playing a role here.
Last Wednesday the KDE regional groups Birds of a Feather session took place at Akademy 2006, Dublin. The focus of this BoF session was to share experiences that regional KDE-groups have had in building a community. A regional group is generally country based, e.g. KDE-IT for Italy and KDE-NL for Netherlands.
The Department of Computer Science of the University of Dar es Salaam has developed a new Swahili web browser called JAMBO MOZILLA FIREFOX for public use.
Every time I almost finish the Ralf Flaxa Declaration as text, more filings, and again here we are with boatloads of filings in both SCO v. IBM and in SCO v. Novell. I'll show you the Pacer text, and I'll get the filings up as soon as I can.
A Taiwanese hardware manufacturer is shipping a Linux powered PC (code named TU-40) for just (US)$99. The specification of the PC is modest and it runs with 128 MB RAM and has a 200 MHz processor. The company claims this is enough power to run lightweight GNU/Linux distributions.
It is no secret that Linus Torvalds and several Linux kernel developers are less than thrilled with the notion of shifting the license from GPL 2 to GPL 3 when GPL 3 is completed. When someone asked Torvalds "hey, what do you think about this?" and he proceeded to state exactly what he thought about it.
On the boxed (and/or club) Mandriva 2007.0 editions, you’ll get automatically AIXGL/XGL working with proprietary drivers. If you download the free edition, you’ll probably want this feature activated also. Here is the description of the procedure to follow in order to properly activate the 3DDesktop functionality on your computer.
ATI HAS astonished me with the quality of its Linux drivers. Given ATI's past record of not caring about Linux users, I was shocked by the almost typing-free installation experience.
The Beryl project, a fork of the Compiz compositing window manager, announced its initial development release, version 0.1.0, today. The developers hope the new project, born of the community-maintained compiz-quinnstorm branch after months of diverging development, will allow greater community involvement and produce more flexible code.
As open source applications become increasingly stable, companies must learn to view the software as just another piece in a comprehensive application architecture that will include open source as well as closed source components.
The longest-awaited upgrade—-aside from the ever-M.I.A. Duke Nukem computer game—-has got to be version 6 of Perl. Our favorite part of Perl’s taffy pull of a release date is the annual presentation, called State of the Onion, that Perl overseer Larry Wall usually gives at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention.
Leaving Windows takes more than courage. Apple's OS X may be nicer, but Macs still cost more than Windows PCs. Linux sits at the other end of the price spectrum; it is free - or close to free.
After installing CentOS, your system has only a few repositories, therefore offering a limited range of applications. It is possible and easy to add more repositories that are unofficial but trusted by the community. By doing so, you will access a wide range or applications for your CentOS system.
In this week's entry we'll look at two more "live" CDs of Linux systems optimized for multimedia creation and performance. I've been having a great time with these systems, and I hope that my mini-profiles inspire you to try them all.
