Well, it's that time of year again. Buttercups are blooming, little birds are making their way back, and a beta 8 of SUSE is released... BETA 8? Wow. Have you ever known a release to go through so many betas? According to the Roadmap, there may only be one or two release candidates though, and we can expect some kind of word as to the final release date sometime around April 13. But these things tend to change often and we'll be right here to keep you posted. We weren't privy to the beta7, so could we expect some major improvements this public release? Well, let's find out.

A couple of amateur programmers have managed to do what Apple Computer didn't want them to: get Microsoft's Windows operating system to run on the Macintosh. Nederkoorn said he expected they would make it available as open source software.
The numbers of SMB manufacturers turning from UNIX to open source operating systems seems to be increasing. One thing driving this is the increasing availability of ERP application suites ported to Linux.

As implied by the title, Linux In Easy Steps is an introduction to the open source operating system and is targeted very clearly at new users. In fact the cover proudly proclaims that it can take the reader from 'from NEWBIE to GURU', in full colour as well. That's a tall task, particularly as there are only 240 pages to go from absolute beginner to the heights of gurudom.
My list of tools is aimed at non-professional system administrators who manage Linux machines in a home or small-office network. On my network, I use a number of security-related programs that I usually run as cron jobs. None of the programs are mentioned in the Top 75 Security Tools list, but I like them because they are easy to install and configure, and they work well. I also have a few recovery tools that I use when a system is having problems.
It has a clean and has immaculate look about it with enough eye-candy to make it a hit with both Linux enthusiasts good desktop design fans. But does the forthcoming vesion 10 of Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (previously called Novell Linux Desktop) really have what it takes to make the real inroads into the desktop OS sector Novell so badly needs to make?
Knoppix, the founder Klaus Knopper, created with what could be mentioned today as maybe one of the first LiveCD distributions. Knoppix had a great following when people found out that they could finally try out Linux without configuring their system to work with both Windows and Linux.
The GNOME desktop has come a long way since a study sponsored by Sun Microsystems in 2001 raised usability issues. Since then, GNOME has learned to take usability seriously, developing its Human Interface Guidelines and making strong efforts to apply them more thoroughly with each release. The GNOME 2.14 release continues this tradition.

Here's a question: should the decision to build the Net to maximum capacity--the broadest we can make broadband--be based on whether or not today's carriers can think of a way to pay back the cost of building it?
While we're answering that, let's ask if the Net should be private at all. Are the rivers and seas private? How about the Interstate Highway System?
Sokulla said SimpleKDE's goal "is to create a KDE based (which can be the best base in my opinion), enterprise level, simple, easy to use, secure desktop environment. So we want to make something between Gnome and KDE. Some people consider our relationship with KDE [similar] to the one between Gnome and Xfce. But this is not true; we are not that far to KDE, we are forking KDE."
Fired. Yes. Simply fired, for economical reasons, along with a few other ones. More than 7 years after I created Mandrake-Linux and then Mandrakesoft, the current boss of Mandriva "thanks me" and I'm leaving, sad, with my two-month salary indemnity standard package.
Ravi, you seem to like Linux so much. But did you know that there is relationship between Sex and Linux ? Having successfully caught my attention and obviously having piqued my curiosity, he went on to state six relations between sex and Linux.
