With all the Ubuntu excitement passed few days it occurred to me that being a KDE fan moreso than gnome, perhaps Kubuntu might be more my cup of tea. When perusing the downloads it also occurred to me that 'hey I have a 64bit machine now!' So, I downloaded the Kubutu 6.06 desktop amd64 iso. Was it more appealing to a diehard KDE fan? Does 64bit programming make much difference?
I have always been skeptical of media players and music management software... using a bare minimum player like XMMS to play my digital music. So, when a friend came to me and said "try amaroK!", I said, "Yeah, right!"
I admit it. I'm HUGE fan of Ubuntu Linux for the Desktop. So with great pleasure, I have put together a guide to help everyone easily create a dual-boot PC running both Ubuntu and Windows XP in celebration of Ubuntu's official Dapper Drake release. Don't worry... I'm laying the instructions out in such a way that most Windows users who've ever tinkered with their PC will find it a piece of cake.
Creator Michael "STIBS" Stibane calls STX Linux "a desktop Linux distribution especially targeted to older hardware." I tested version 1.0 of the Slackware 10.2-based distro on an old laptop with a 300MHz Celeron processor, 80MB of RAM, and a 4GB hard disk. I found this young distro for old hardware has promise.
Imagine commercial applications like Ableton Live, Sibelius, Propellerheads Reason, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo, or Max/MSP/Jitter running on Linux. Thanks to modern development processes, this is no far-fetched scenario. I’ve been thinking along these lines for some time as you may know (often with significant prodding from you folks), but it’s nice when others are, too:
Love it, hate it, heard lots about it, but still don't have enough of a handle to form a firm opinion? Then we must be talking about Linux, the open-source operating system that's alluring because it's heavy duty and it's free.
The Supplimentary repositories have changed. The following will help you to get the latest KDE 3.5.3 and future versions as well as all latest KDE apps.
Every now and then a particular Linux distribution appears and causes a splash with its stability, usability, support of myriads of pieces of hardware, abundance of features, etc. Although it does not fit exactly in the above description, one of the recent splashes is the Debian-based Ubuntu Linux and its derivatives Kubuntu and Edubuntu.
I've been wrestling with Xen for a week or so now but before I post some articles about Xen itself I'd like to share this quick hack to get the Nvidia binary driver working with the SUSE 10.1 Xen kernel.
A few years ago, I bought my first laptop, a 15-inch PowerBook. It was also my first Apple machine. I kept my Linux desktop, but moved most of my daily work to the laptop. I tried to get used to Mac OS X for six months, but when a new version of XFree86 came out and supported my video card fully, I finally switched away from Mac OS X. Why?
The past few days I've been using Ubuntu 6.06, "Dapper Drake", first as a beta, then as of last night, the final build. I've got to say, I've been completely blown away. This is the first time that I've seriously considered ditching my windows partition completely and running strictly Linux... that is, of course, before I tried to create a screencast of the amazing 3D graphical effects of XGL and Compiz.

Dynebolic is a live CD distro packed with tools for working with sound and video files. Dynebolic uses the Squashfs filesystem to fit a lot of applications into a small space, along with a speed-tweaked kernel and the tools to perform well on low-end equipment. The upcoming Dyne:II release also lets you add and remove tools to create your own custom version of the distro. Here's how.
For the past few years Scott, a systems administrator at the University of Southern Florida (USF) in Tampa, has been battling an institutional mindset to get Windows out and Linux in as part of his plan to save money on licensing costs, lost time through server consolidation and maybe even his own sanity.
Sony Corporation's video game console PlayStation3 will be in the market in November. Sony officials said the PS3 will be introduced in the Japanese markets on 11 November and in the U.S. and European markets a week later.
