Mandriva, publisher of the popular Mandriva Linux operating system, today announced a new partnership with HP to distribute HP computers pre-loaded with Mandriva Linux 2006 to 37 countries in Latin America.
TurboCASH, from South Africa's Pink Software, claims superior functionality to its closed source rivals, is licensed under the GPL, and has a user base of more than 30,000. It even integrates directly with the OSCommerce and Zen Cart ecommerce applications. However, as a Windows-only application, it hasn't solved the free software desktop problem for small business -- until now.
I have been a Linux/Unix admin for about 7 years professionally now. I actually started off as a Junior Admin at a Linux company. After that job, I left to be a full-time admin. The company I worked for was a web development company. The company was awesome, everyone was super nice and to this day I say it was the best job; however it did have its rough areas.
Many companies using Linux for embedded applications may be unwittingly violating the Linux license and even breaking federal securities laws, according to a white paper released today by Wasabi Systems, a leading embedded operating systems provider.
Traditionally, graphics applications have been divided into raster image and vector image editors, based on the primitives that each category uses. By that logic, the open source world needs only one of each, or it gets accused of wasting "resources" through duplication. But there's another way to look at graphics applications -- by usage. The painting program Krita takes a different approach to working with pixels, which can lead to a very different raster imaging experience.
The makers of Ubuntu Linux are planning to develop an equivalent to Apple's .Mac service.
Head teachers from across the country are visiting a school in Essex to see its IT infrastructure, which includes a fully open source computer suite that was built for under £1,000
We ended last time after configuring our first unprivileged Xen domain. In this article, we complete our cluster and then test it using an open-source parallel ray tracer. The first thing we need to do is create additional slave nodes to be used with the cluster. So, let's get down to business.
I still remember those days clearly when I was taking a short term course in Unix. The Unix flavour being SCO Unix ver 5.0. The first command we were introduced to in Unix by the instructor was the 'banner' command.
I don't pretend to be a lawyer, but I do know a bit about open-source licensing and I, for one, am greeting the arrival of the first public draft of the GPL Version 3 with a great sigh of relief. As I read the new license, here are the highlights.

Open-Xchange, Inc. today announced it has hired former IDC System Software Vice President Daniel M. Kusnetzky as executive vice president, Marketing Strategy, responsible for corporate and marketing strategy worldwide effective February 1.
Mozilla Firefox has achieved an market share of over 20 percent in Europe, according to the latest figures released by French Web metrics firm XiTi.
A push is under way to endow Linux with a virtual partitioning technology used by rival operating systems to make servers more efficient.
Any program could be destroyed or crippled by a software patent belonging to someone who has no other connection to the program, they said, adding that most countries have followed the direction of the United States in allowing software to be patented to at least some degree, and, by the end of the decade, commentators were criticizing the GPL for doing too little to combat patents.
I was apprehensive about Linux and open source in general as I had always assumed that it was something only techies used and was not very user friendly. "Since buying the Linux server I have found it easier to use than our old Windows NT server. Things like adding new users and setting administration rights are far simpler, e-mail handling and backup solutions are also much improved.
One of the things that I love about Linux is that it has tools for everyone, including writers. Linux distributions come with word processors, text editors, spell checkers, typesetting, and publishing tools galore. Normally, you're using these tools with a standard desktop distribution in an environment like KDE or GNOME. Billy-Bob Ming, however, has taken a different tack and rolled his own Linux distro specifically aimed at writers.
