No matter how hard people or companies like SCO try, nor how muchothers believe they know the commercial market, open source will never die.
I can imagine the comments we'll see on this article. What about X distribution? And so on... I'm not going to justify my reasons for choosing Debian. You can use whatever distro you want. It's just a matter of preference.
While Oracle's moves to provide enterprise-level support around Red Hat Linux are stirring up controversy, the vendor's decision to join the Free Standards Group (FSG), also unveiled last week, is capturing less attention. Yet is it possible that Oracle's newly minted membership in the standards group might actually help to dispel industry fragmentation?
You don't need a Ph.D. in scientific visualization to have some fun with three-dimensional data. Whether you're searching for an unused nook in a cramped disk partition, or trying to find the bloated temp/ folder that's crashing your system, sometimes the flat folder view of a traditional GUI file browser is little help. Luckily, Linux offers a variety of 3-D filesystem that can make your disk usage statistics come alive.
Installing Quake III Arena on a 64-bit Linux box isn't that bad actually. I couldn't find instructions anywhere on how to do this, so after figuring it out I'm writing them down here.
There have been a swirl of speculations as to whether AMD will open-source the ATI Linux fglrx display drivers, and today the first display driver (8.30.3) is being pushed out after the completion of the ATI and AMD acquisition. But are these drivers still closed-source? Has any new information hit the wire about these rumors? We have the ATI fglrx 8.30.3 display drivers in our hands today to tell you all of the details.
In its first five releases, Red Hat's Fedora Core has represented the Linux technology vanguard. And so it is with Fedora Core 6. The fast-moving Red Hat distribution polishes SELinux, adds new tools and improves performance.
Despite last week's article about running World of Warcraft on Linux with CodeWeavers' CrossOver, I can't help but feel a sense of despair when I think of gaming under Linux. It seems that over the last few years, with a few exceptions, things have gotten worse rather than better. Frankly, I've had it with gaming under Linux. It's not worth the time or the effort.
Why replace Mac OS X with Linux on an Apple eMac? I did it to revive an aging hardware platform and provide a computer to a friend. Here's how I replaced "Tiger" (OS X 10.1) first with Debian, then Ubuntu.
As we now all know, Oracle is planning their own Linux. This is causing general hand wringing and dire predictions of doom. Market fragmentation? The Linux market is already fragmented and has been for some time.
I know that many people come to the FFII—as I did—because they feel a deep sense of injustice at how the smaller players in IT are consistently squashed by special interests and monopolists. But I’m going to look at our core concern—software patents—from a different angle, one based more on economics and less on emotions.
After looking at most GNU/Linux distributions, author Rickford Grant finally settled on Ubuntu. Grant is the authour of Ubuntu Linux for Non-Geeks. Grant tells Frederick Noronha why he chose Ubuntu, what the book holds, and what the challenges were in writing it.
I was looking for a lightweight Web server to run on my ARM-based Linksys NSLU2 network storage device in order to share a few custom packages I've built for Debian and Arch Linux among the systems on my home network. After playing around with Apache, LightTPD, and thttpd, I tried fnord and never looked back.
Red Hat customers should perform compatibility tests and pilot one or two mission critical systems on Oracle's new Unbreakable Linux support for RedHat Linux, according to analyst firm Gartner.
Shares of Red Hat Inc., a provider of open source Linux software and services, jumped in morning trading on Monday after an analyst speculated that even if the company does cut prices on some of its services, it will still have healthy cash flow.
PHP Accelerators/Cachers will boost the performance of your PHP applications, by caching the compiled form of php scripts to avoid the overhead of parsing and compiling the code every time the page is loaded. This list contains all the php accelerator solutions available at this time.
If you expect every software update to bring an arsenal of shock-and-awe technologies, prepare yourself now for disappointment with version 2.0 of Firefox (as well as with IE7 and Opera 9). But if you realize what artisans and engineers have known for millennia—that improving and refining what you have beats feature bloat—this is your browser.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 supports dual monitors. To learn how to configure this multiple display and give yourself a little more room, follow the steps below.
Linux big guns Oracle and Red Hat may be battling it out for support supremacy, but local IT shops have little concern for how any outcome may affect their operations.
A few weeks ago, in Faqs! Facts! Fax! 531 in response to a query about the DT Mk II ‘Vista Ready’ computer (Boot Camp 436) I casually mentioned that if anyone was interested in finding out about how to install Linux on this machine they should write in, and you did! We are going to be looking at how to install Linux on a Windows XP computer in a dual-boot configuration.
