Gary Edwards of the Open Document Foundation, a leading member of its technical committee, says Microsoft is playing proprietary games aimed at controlling XML file formats and preventing the Open Document Format from gaining a foothold.
While I tried to gather information about software installation and Linux I also discussed this topic with several people. One argument I found rather strange was based on the statement that there is no Linux OS - but that every distribution is its own operating system. This is something I cannot agree with.

If you ask any IT manager if they would want an operating system that was ‘guaranteed’ to be available and supporting applications running continuously twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year, then the answer would probably be very simple. However, if you want to measure how much this level of availability is worth to the organisation, then you’ll probably get a very different response.
COR Entertainment LLC announces the release of Alien Arena 2007 version 6.04 today, the latest installment of it's freeware online deathmatch game!
2007 will go down in history as the year Sun Microsystems gave up the reins of the Java platform, releasing it under an open source license to the Java developer community.

Métamorphose is the graphical equivalent of the mv command combined with some of the functions of the chattr command for multiple files. While Métamorphose seems intended mainly for use with mass numbers of music files, to judge from the examples in the online help, anyone who takes file organization seriously can benefit from its attention to work flow and detailed options.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) yesterday released a paper entitled, "The road to hardware free from restrictions", detailing ways major hardware manufacturers with power in the market can work with the free software community to establish a "mutually beneficial relationship."

If you are like me, one reason you switched to Linux is for customization. On Ubuntu, you don't get that luxury all the time. So, I will show you how to get two of the latest engines available, Murrine and Candido, on your spiffy Ubuntu machine.
The difference between the two operating systems and what really makes the hair split is the underlying design philosophy that went into creating these essential parts of our computing experience.
From time to time, it is not uncommon to encounter a confession on the net, a bleating essay that says "I can't run Linux, though I'd love to", and advances a host of assorted "reasons" for this act of commission.

Kadischi was created in 2005 by Darko Ilic specifically for creating Fedora based Live CDs. Although it is still in active early development, it is still quite usable.

Novell Inc. reported a quarterly loss on Thursday, missing Wall Street forecasts as the business software maker's sales fell and it took a charge for a consulting unit that it aims to sell.
