A look at UHU-Linux 2.1 RC2

Filed under
Linux

beranger: More than one year ago, I reviewed UHU-Linux 2.0, and I very much liked it. Now, when UHU-Linux 2.1 is about to be released (I don't understand Hungarian, so I can't read their forums, but I suspect they want to release before Christmas), I tested UHU-Linux 2.1 RC2 (released on 12/16), downloaded from here: uhu-linux-2.1-rc2-dvd.iso.

Filed under
OSS

Gyn Moody: Choice is an important element of free software, so it's perhaps no surprise that even at the level of the desktop environment there is more than one offering. But the main alternatives – KDE and GNOME – represent more than just a way of placing icons on a screen. Nowhere is that more evident than in their respective views on Microsoft's OOXML document standard, which are very far apart – perhaps dangerously so.

GNOME, OOXML, and Half-Truths Colliding in the Night

Filed under
OSS

Bruce Byfield: The average user probably hasn't even heard of Open Document Format (ODF) or Microsoft Office Open XML (OOXML). With both formats candidates for being the ISO standard that becomes the norm for interoperability between office suites, emotions were already running high. However, this issue has been sidetracked by a debate about whether the GNOME Foundation has betrayed or assisted the community by being involved with the development of OOXML at all.

Linux Networking Cookbook: Tasty Linux recipes

Filed under
Reviews

linux-watch: Even before I picked up Unix, I worked on networks. While networking has gotten simpler, it's almost all TCP/IP now instead of Arcnet, Token-Ring and a half dozen dusty wiring and protocol schemes. The services that use networking have gotten ever more powerful and more complicated. That's why a book like Carla Schroder's Linux Networking Cookbook is so valuable.

Ubuntu 7.10: A warm and fuzzy Linux or a slightly less geeky upgrade for early adopters?

Filed under
Ubuntu

laptopmag.com: If you’ve been curious about Linux but fearful of installing the open-source OS on a laptop, then Ubuntu 7.10 will eliminate all excuses. This graphical and very friendly version of the OS is free, looks and plays very much like Mac/Windows, and runs a surprisingly vast array of programs from the open-source community.
