The Fritzbox is an all-in-one Linux-based device that supports VoIP, home networking, and even some extension mechanisms. Hacker Guylhem Aznar explains how he simplified his home network with this device.
Many large software companies are adopting Open Source policies at least in some small manner, in an effort to increase their appeal to customers. Many enthusiasts claim that OSS will revolutionize the Information Technology (IT) world both on the consumer level and on the professional. To some extent OSS already has.
The long-awaited expansion of the World of Warcraft online game is finally going on sale on 16 January. The Burning Crusade includes a new continent for players with high-level characters plus new quests, professions and adversaries.
There are three major Linux conferences held annually, one each in the US, Canada and Australia. That alone should provide an indication of the extent to which Australians have been, and are, involved in the free and open source software community. From Monday, Sydney's University of New South Wales will play host to the eighth Australian Linux Conference better known as linux.conf.au.
The EU Commission's Final Report on its "Study on the Economic impact of open source software on innovation and the competitiveness of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector in the EU" is now available on its policy documents, publications and studies page as a PDF. I thought you'd be interested in the conclusion regarding total cost of ownership.
Since I had the CDs for 1.3, I didn't bother to retrieve 1.3.01, as I knew I could update the system afterwards (it's a small update). Full of confidence, I started it "the Next, Next..." way. I let it take over the whole HDD, automatic partitioning, etc.
After all the dust settled on the OpenSUSE 10.2 install on the IBM T41, I had a new office use Linux desktop / laptop. What about my home use Linux? A new Linux laptop enters the house when the last MS Windows system leaves.
The Fedora community got its first official live CD last month. Based on Fedora Core 6, it shows off the best of what Fedora has to offer. Furthermore, the tools used to put together the CD make creating and maintaining custom Red Hat or Fedora-based live CDs simple.
For those who have been following our series thus far, you know that I am on a mission from the Penguin himself to take away as much grief as possible with as little headache as possible. Granted, the command line/shell may need to be bopped open once in a while, but for the most part it’s been easy going.
SCALE 5X, the 2007 Southern California Linux Expo to be held at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Feb. 10 and 11, announced this week that it plans to host a "Women in Open Source" mini-conference on Feb. 9 at the same location.
My first experience with Linux was with Redhat 7.3 back in the day. I liked the security and ability to customize but I was turned off by the difficulty installing packages (dependency hell). I recently installed Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake on my new Windows laptop. My first impression is that Linux has changed dramatically.

When discussing ways to switch to GNU/Linux, one of the biggest difficulties I've found is finding answers to the question, "What can I replace this program with?" It's completely understandable; people don't want to lose functionality. However, Googling for answers can easily lead to confusion and frustration if you don't have the background or knowledge to be able to differentiate between the wheat and the chaff. Is there a comprehensive resource for finding GNU/Linux replacements for Windows software?
Game Informer met with id Software’s John Carmack and Todd Hollenshead to talk about, well, a lot of things. In our hour-long talk, we talked about the state of PC gaming, QuakeCon and the pros and cons of developing for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Enjoy.
I started using BasKet version 0.5 a while back with the intention of reviewing it. I found it useful, but didn't really get excited about it. That all changed once I installed version 0.6. The entire interface has been reworked, making it more useable while adding valuable features. If you're not familiar with it, BasKet is multi-purpose note-taking software with a flexible interface and great organization.
User Mode Linux (UML) allows you to run Linux kernels as user mode processes under a host Linux kernel, giving you a simple way to run several independent virtual machines on a single piece of physical hardware. Let's take a look at UML and how it can give you more bang for the hardware buck, or make it easier to debug the kernel.
