Most Linux-based distributions for the masses have either GNOME, KDE, or both desktops, yet the startup times and resources required by both GNOME and KDE make them unsuitable for old or lower-end hardware. My quest for a standards-compliant, fast, lightweight, and extensible window manager led me to Openbox.
Bill Gates was recently named one of Time's "Persons of the Year" for his foundation's work in bringing vaccines to the poor. But bringing laptops running Linux to the poor - he's opposed to it. This week's op-ed piece looks at the two faces of Bill Gates.
Gather round the hearth, young nerdlings and I will tell you a tale...just let me settle my creaking bones into my rocking chair, let me wipe my rheumy eyes and nose - there, that's better. Now pass me my ear trumpet. Do give me a little prod if I nod off or my voice wavers too much. Are we all settled in now? Yes? Marvellous! Now let me tell you about ftp upload.
Migration from Windows to Linux has always been one of those tasks that we've all been able to perform from one extent to another, but it hasn't been simple has it? Sure, it can be done, but can it be done easily? That is the ultimate question.
Linus Torvalds made it clear on January 25th in a message to the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML), that as far as he was concerned, the Linux operating system is going to stay under General Public License 2 and not migrate to GPL 3. Discussion of the matter, however, has not come to an end.
With increasing attention on the possibilities of open source, twelve CIO executive council members recently came together via a conference call to discuss the role of open source in their organisations, focusing on topics such as this "free" software's total cost of ownership (TCO); making a business case to senior executives; the relationship with the open-source community, which shares code and answers support questions; and what types of projects are best suited for open source.
Insecure.Org is pleased to announce the immediate, free availability of the Nmap Security Scanner version 4.00 from http://www.insecure.org/nmap/. Nmap has undergone many substantial changes since our last major release (3.50 in February 2004) and we recommend that all current users upgrade.
Xen aims to be the ultimate virtual machine server. Its developers claim near-native performance, and even have pretty graphs to prove it. It achieves this by modifying the kernels of supported platforms, which of course cannot be done to closed, proprietary operating systems.
There are a dozen or so truly robust clients for the PC, and about five or six for Mac and Linux. As is always the case, everyone has a favorite, and each client has a core group of devotees. In this article, we'll examine all of the major BitTorrent clients.
Adobe Photoshop has taken an early lead as the "most wanted" Windows/MacOS-only application among Linux users, according to an online poll currently in progress on Novell's CoolSolutions community website. Autocad and Macromedia Dreamweaver are running second and third in the voting, Novell said on Wednesday.
Most of us use our hard disks like closets, stuffing in files and then forgetting about them. But no matter how big a disk you have, it's going to run out of free space one day, and running out of disk space during an OpenOffice.org install or a system update could hurt you badly. Keeping an eye on disk usage doesn't take much time or effort. Here are some tips and tools.
Nat Friedman, the company's vice president of Linux desktop engineering, showed Novell Linux Desktop 10 playing videos and MP3 music files, and exchanging music and photos with an iPod and a digital camera, in a keynote presentation at the Solutions Linux conference and trade show on the outskirts of Paris.
So, you want to install a firewall on your Linux-based infrastructure, but you're hung up in the research phase. All that Web-surfing, those phone calls, the demo installations and other research is making you reach for the Pepto-Bismol. Close that medicine cabinet, at least until your next service request! In this tip, I'll describe how to install and configure a firewall on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL4).
The GPL 3 may yet change into something that Linus Torvalds can bless, and if that happens, Linux and Solaris may trade code after all.
Zimbra is a (partially) Open Source Collaboration Suite, including mail and calendaring features available online within IE 6.0 and Firefox 1.5 (Win, Mac, Unix, Linux) and also for clients like Outlook, Thunderbird, (iCal and Sunbird for calendaring).
