Today, you can do everything you want with a Linux desktop, except play the latest games. Even there, Linux is catching up. So, why do only a handful of people run Linux instead of Windows? Here are my top-four reasons why Windows wins and Linux loses.
In June I wrote an article comparing DVD ripping programs that run on Linux. At that time dvd::rip was my second choice, mostly because of its ugly interface. Now that it has an updated GUI I decided to go back and give it another try. And I'm glad I did because dvd::rip is my new favorite ripper.
It is a brilliant idea to create an operating system that is free for everyone to use and to edit. Thousands of hackers around the globe share the dream of open source information technology without monopolism. Everybody who is into computing has heard of Linux and lots of them are using it for daily work. Yet so called “out-of-the-box” experience can instead be very tricky and much to complicated for a normal user.
Dunc-Tank, the unofficial organization set up to fund selected Debian activities, has made its first experimental payment to release managers, but community members are still debating whether a missed deadline and the alleged demotivation of some programmers make the experiment a failure.
Last October saw a major breakthrough in an area of research that, until very recently, was squarely in the realm of science fiction—cloaking technology.
I’m really, really impressed with FVWM-Crystal. It makes for an exceptionally good-looking lightweight system — even on outdated hardware. But after knocking around the FVWM-Crystal howto, I realized I would do much better.
The ImageMagick (IM) suite of command-line graphics tools is a free software staple; Linux, other Unix-like operating systems, and proprietary OSes like Windows have supported IM for close to two decades. But there is also an alternative tool called GraphicsMagick (GM) that covers much of the same functionality. How do you know which one is right for you?
About a month after moving into my new Slackware install, I have finally gotten around to setting up my cool Bash prompt again... only this time it's perfect.
I finally managed to get my webcam work with AMSN (actually I didn’t do anything much) in my desktop. I have a Logitech Quickcam and Ubuntu Dapper recognized the camera without any problem. The problem was, I had a TV tuner card installed and also the webcam.
You can never be too safe these days. Viruses, spyware, rootkits, remote exploits, you just never know what security issue is going to be your downfall. Thats why it is important as a Linux administrator to have an understanding of some of the best Linux security tools available to you.

Anssi Hannula pointed out to the new rpm site as RedHat through Fedora was aiming to give new directions to the RPM projects. The position of Mandriva about this is not known yet. Olivier LAHAYE was looking for a 64bits version of OpenOffice.org...
Firefox might be free, but that doesn't mean Mozilla is in the poorhouse. Although some speculated on one, higher, figure, Mitchell Baker, chair of the Mozilla Foundation, said that Mozilla made just under $53 million in 2005.
