One of the most common questions asked by newcomers to Linux is "Which is better, KDE or Gnome?" The answer commonly given is, "It depends. Try them both and see which one you like best." It's a reasonable answer, because it costs nothing but time to try them. I'm going to tell you which one is better.
I recently finished installing Gentoo on my PS3 and I have to say it was a very pleasant experience. It did not take as long to install compared to the typical Gentoo installations. This was the third and favorite distro that I tried out on my PS3 after installing Yellowdog and Fedora Core.
Established in 2006, the college aims to provide a specialised environment for Year 13 students to focus on computers and their wide range of uses. Campbell says that rather than teaching how to use proprietary applications, the college focuses on teaching skills using open source software.
This is Part 2 of a series that pits Microsoft's latest wares -- Vista -- against Linux's fair-haired boy -- Ubuntu. When we last saw our fearless curmudgeon, he was busy preparing a level playing field for Vista and Linux to play -- and work -- together on.
Working with Fedora, after a year with ‘other distributions’ was quite a culture-shock. The Fedora world is so strange coming from Ubuntu/OpenSUSE; entering the Fedora world meant I had(have) to literally figure (learn) things from scratch. However, some similarities exist, thankfully, and of course the internet help(s)/(ed). The following is a brief installation review for getting Fedora Core enabled with other extras that we have come to expect from our distros.
Barely a week after a U.S. judge approved a landmark antitrust agreement with Microsoft, company executives were swapping e-mails suggesting Dell deserved a beating for its growing interest in Linux, according to documents filed with a state court.

The unification of the Free Standards Group and the Open Source Development Labs into the all-new shiny Linux Foundation has drawn a lot of attention this week. But while a lot of people are interested in the motivation behind the merger, I am wondering what the outcomes of this move might be.
Fun is a pervasive feature of software development, not only for open source programmers but in the area of commercial software development too: Open source developers that are paid for their work are observed to be very motivated and prepared for future effort, especially if they enjoy their development time.
These screenshots are took from the GNUstep 1.0 LiveCD, released on Nov. 6, 2006. No matter how nostalgic might I be, the GNUstep 1.0 desktop looks exactly like a Linux desktop back in 1994.
The last piece of the openSUSE 10.2 distribution got released today. It contains a base desktop system (KDE and Gnome) with applications for office, multimedia and internet usage.
Novell received an additional notice of non-compliance from the staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market, pursuant to NASDAQ marketplace rule 4310(c)(14), due to the delay in filing its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2006.
We’re going to take a look at the basics of Perl, which is a popular choice for writing basic CGI scripts – programs that interact with a web server to provide more dynamic web pages.
As an educator, I am interested in course management systems (CMS) applications for courses, curriculums, and institutions. Well-known proprietary CMS applications such as WebCT and Blackboard are too expensive for the schools and companies I work with. After testing and playing with several open source CMS applications, my favorite is Moodle.
Knopper is known as the man who can put a system to life without even touching its hard drive. And what makes his efforts notable is the fact that he is a one-man army. He has an infectious sense of humour which I noticed when I met him last year during Asia's biggest Linux event, LinuxAsia 2006.
Need to test-run a new software app without affecting your main computer? Software developer Kulvir Singh Bhogal introduces you to VMware Player, a program that allows you to run virtual machine images on a host PC, effectively allowing you to run multiple operating systems on the same PC simultaneously.
The long-awaited next version of the Debian open-source operating system is most likely to be released in February, according to members of the Debian community.
Last year the Italian FreeBSD user group, GUFI, rekindled the FreeSBIE project to develop a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system. After more than four months of development, and an equal number of beta releases, the project released FreesBIE 2.0 this month. Codenamed Clint Eastwood, the live CD is based on the recent FreeBSD 6.2 release, and is an ideal platform to experience BSD and learn how things are done in BSD land.
A coalition of rivals charged on Friday that Microsoft Corp.'s new Vista operating system coming out next week will perpetuate practices found illegal in the European Union nearly three years ago.
