After hours of research and tweaking, all your computers are connected to each other and the Internet, and you can print your documents on a printer connected to another system -- but you still must take a break when someone else wants to use the scanner connected to your system. Save the money additional scanners would cost by sharing your scanner on your LAN.
When I wrote about the wrangling over the GNU GPLv3 licence a month back, it provoked a lively conversation in the comments. Given this evident passion among readers, I thought it would be interesting to ask the top hackers - the ones actually involved in the discussions - for their thoughts on the matter. So I contacted Richard Stallman for the FSF angle, and a bunch of the top kernel hackers - Linus, Alan Cox, Greg Kroah-Hartman, Andrew Morton and Dave Miller - for their view.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison fired a broadside at Red Hat on Wednesday. But now that some of the smoke has cleared, it appears some cannonballs went wide of the mark. Red Hat's business is under new pressure, but it won't be simple for Oracle to walk off with all its customers.

And once more the glory of the Weekly Debian Nudes bursts onto your screens, like a particularly colorful pimp, resplendent in its purple sports coat and orange suede shoes. I manage to write a second issue. Of course this is the really big, and no doubt entirely unexpected, news.
Not many years ago, Linux users were pretty much computer geeks. The amount of software available was limited and most installs were from source code. It was from this simple premise that Mandrake was born.
Well, as I already said, Fedora Core 6 is out - and it is pretty amazing! Ok, I have to admit that the install (I normally reinstall which is no problem since my home has its own partition) wasn’t easy at all. But I have to admit, the new system works great.
