Firms hoping to reduce network costs by deploying open-source routers may be disappointed since experts say such systems are hard to configure and lack the processing power required to handle large volumes of traffic.
The South African NGO sector is gathering momentum to petition the South African government to adopt free and open source software. The petition, to be sent to Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, the minister of public service and administration, calls on government to reduce the country's dependence on software imports.
The first big test of the FBI's latest effort to create a more cohesive data-sharing infrastructure comes next month, when the bureau will formally scrutinize plans for its highly anticipated Sentinel project.
I’ve been hearing about BitTorrent for at least a year. It’s an exciting technology in principle, because it solves traditional central repository file distribution problems, uses peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing technology, and is written in my favorite programming language, Python. But many people still don’t seem to understand how it works.
After nine pre-beta builds, Wolvix Cub 1.0.5 Beta is finaly ready for release.
Wolvix Cub is a smaller version of Wolvix, designed to fit on 256MB USB removable media and it will serve as the base for the larger 'standard' 512MB Wolvix version.
Hitting the burner this week is Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) Knot 2. Some of the changes beyond Ubuntu Edgy Eft Knot 1 is X.Org 7.1.1, GNOME 2.16.0 RC1, new boot splash screen, F-Spot, Firefox 2.0 Bon Echo, and much more. As usual we have provided a few visuals from this Ubuntu development release.
Have you heard of Windows and Mac operating systems? Almost everyone who uses a computer will say "Yes." However, not so many are familiar with an operating system called Linux. Linux can be seen as an alternative and an answer to the current locked source code software trend that overwhelmingly controls the market. This is why Linux has built cult-like following among enthusiasts and believers in the open source movement.
Timothy Miller is the founder of the Open Graphics Project. In 1999, he started learning chip design on the job, because the kinds of graphics chips that his employer needed couldn't be bought from 3rd parties anymore. He has been designing graphics chips and graphics-related chips ever since.
Don’t throw that old PC away just yet, it still has some life in it yet. No matter how bad your old PC is it can always be used as a router, and your old router as a switch. All you need is two nic cards for it.
I am sure anyone who has anything to do with computers have heard of a system administrator. But not many would be aware of a content management administrator or more specifically a Drupal administrator.
10 years ago, on October 14th 1996, Matthias Ettrich announced a project to create a complete and consistent GUI for the prospering Linux operating system. The project grew and matured and now it is 2006 and KDE is one of the largest Free Software projects.
After a year from 1.0.4, we are happy to announce a new release. It comes with a lot of changes, following release of efltk to version 2.0.6.
In one respect, Gentoo Linux 2006.1 is the same as it's always been, except with newer software on the installation media. Beginning with version 2006.0, though, a graphical environment was added to the live CD along with an installation program that rarely worked properly. The good news is, the installer works reasonably well in Gentoo 2006.1; the bad news is, it's still quicker and easier to install by hand via the command line.
At first glance Ubuntu appears to be the answer to the prayers of Linux evangelists worldwide. It has a great website, great marketing, an enigmatic philanthropist leader, a devoted community and a philosophy which seems to mirror that of the wider free software community in stark contrast to its enterprise counterparts. With such a stellar resume one has to ask the question, is Ubuntu too good to be true?
In an interview with Croteam's Vedran Skrnjug we've had the opportunity to get some information about the upcoming linux release of Serious Sam 2. The interview gives some background information about the motivation for the port and some details about the expected game.
Ubuntu is an enigma. So what really makes this distro stand out from other community projects like openSuse, Freespire, Debian? Well, I think what pulls many is the simplicity to the tool, how they kept true to Linux ideals by making a software that wasn't like windows in every aspect, yet was easiest enough to function for newbies.
