Like any new Linux user I had problems burning/installing Linux from Windows. I had to learn how to fix problems the hard way but that didn't stop me from trying again. Here I'd like to share a tool I use to run any Linux liveCD (ISO) inside Windows without any experience at all!
cnet.com: Red Hat recently posted an interesting case study on how retail giant The Gap moved from a Unix and Windows based e-commerce infrastructure to one based on Red Hat Linux.
mdzlog.alcor.net: At DebConf 9 this week, the Debian release team proposed a new approach to Debian’s release cycle, which was then announced on the Debian web site. Both the Debconf presentation and the announcement were quite clear, but a number of news articles and blog posts on the subject seem to have misinterpreted them.
roytanck.com: The Fit-PC2 is the world’s smallest fully functional desktop PC. It’s about 1/4 the volume of a Mac Mini, and it still has all the necessary connections and features to be used as a home or office computer.
daniweb.com/blogs: I'm having a rather traumatic experience with certain Microsoft products lately. The problem is, that to manage a true Hyper-V system remotely, you must have a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system. Where's the freedom in that?
blogs.techrepublic.com: If you’ve been involved in IT over the past few decades, you know that the flame of war has always burned strong. It’s like the best rivalries in sports, with camps residing on opposite sides of the field. Chances are, you’ve been in at least one of these flame wars over the years.
desktoplinuxreviews.com: Up this time is antiX, a light-weight version of Linux based on SimplyMEPIS. antiX is geared toward older systems but it’s also quite usable on more modern hardware.
Preparing for future Linux disk storage with the GUID Partition Table
guardian.co.uk: Could netbooks be replaced by smartbooks? Yes. But will they? Maybe. The general idea is to run smartphone software such as Google's Linux-based Android and Microsoft's Windows CE (AKA Windows Mobile) on portable computers with 7in-10in screens.
computerworlduk.com/blogs: News that Microsoft and Yahoo have finally agreed a formula for their collaboration comes almost as a relief after what seems like years of tiresome on-off negotiations. I think it's necessary to distinguish between short-term and long-term effects.
cnet.com: Talk to any open-source vendor (myself included), and we'll tell you that there's a lot of money to be saved by dropping your proprietary software in favor of open-source alternatives. But is that always the case? And, if so, what are the necessary preconditions for saving money?
raiden.net: Despite all the people who claim to be productive at work, or those who claim to be more than a casual gamer, there is a lot, and I do mean a lot, of people out there who are either casual gamers, or they love to play various solitaire card games on the computer.
softwarefreedom.org/blog: Microsoft has received much undeserved press about their recent release of Linux drivers for their virtualization technology under GPLv2. I say “undeserved” because I don't particularly see why Microsoft should be lauded merely for doing something that is in their own interest that they've done before.
dissociatedpress.net: One of the great things about Linux is that it’s possible to do almost anything with the OS – scale it up, scale it down, customize it to suit your needs. But it’s much easier said than done. Creating your own Linux-based OS is no small feat. Or wasn’t. Until SUSE Studio.
downloadtube.com/blog: For testing purposes or just for fun, almost any existing Linux distribution can be rapidly deployed from its Live CD or DVD ISO image, without the need to perform an installation to a hard drive or a USB drive.
workswithu.com: Ubuntu 9.10 will use GRUB 2 as its default bootloader, replacing GRUB legacy. In this post, we take a look at some of the new features offered by this change.
linux-foundation.org: The command nice, and its corresponding function, nice(), appear to be quite simple. A non-privileged user can “nice” a process so that it gets less CPU time. Do you know more about nice? Try the quiz below.
osrevolution.com: Over the years, iTunes has been accepted as a necessary evil between media players. However, the open source project called Songbird, ever since its conception, has been providing some stiff competition for iTunes.
ubuntu-inside.me: about:config page contains most of Firefox configuration options as you know.So it is the most powerful and effective way to tweak and enhance your Firefox experience. Here is 17.
