I finally got Ubuntu installed. I had downloaded Ubuntu three or four times from the generic site and burnt 6 CDs of the resulting stuff but each time my computer said the CDs were corrupt and aborted the installation.
We received over 500 comments to my last post about expanding Linux onto more of the Dell product line. As noted on IdeaStorm, we're working on it.
Pros: Secure; robust and evolved virtualisation; improved security management and IPv6 support
Cons: Little in the way of eye-candy
With the recent release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0, Red Hat is both following and bucking server operating-systems trends we’ve witnessed in past tests of Novell’s SuSE Linux and Microsoft’s Longhorn beta code.
Ch-ch-ch-changes... Not expecting to hear that with today's driver release?
All my previous posts were pretty much technical in essence, and several were related to my work habits: 3D desktop productivity enhancements, virtual machines, etc.
This time, I’ll go back to something else entirely: GAMES!
You miss the mustachied plumber? Why not get a penguin or a blob instead? They can jump too, you know.

Since the earliest days, free software and its representatives on earth have been the subject of attacks that serve to question the originality, authenticity, authorship, identity and parentage of the software - but the loose communities (if such they are) of hackers, users, developers and proponents of GNU, Linux and free software have always been quick to respond, as Stallman observes in his his
The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.

Dell last week began selling low-cost Linux PCs to enterprise and consumer customers. They just have to be in China to get a hold of the machines.
When creating a security policy for a server, it is sometimes necessary to see if a file has been changed unexpectedly. Using tools such as md5sum will show that a file has changed, but will not show who changed the file. Using the audit subsystem, it is possible to track the process that was responsible for changing the file.
Interface design is a complex business. There are a great many schools of thought about how to build an effective interface, and ultimately no-one is 100% correct. Lots of theory, lots of academia, lots of opinion, but little hard evidence about what design constructs actually work best for general human-computer interaction.
