Microsoft's new browser does not offer any significant improvements over Firefox, according to Walter Mossberg, a technology correspondent for the Wall Street Journal.
It's been a long time since I've been able to work with the open source version of Snort, so for this month's article, I thought what better topic than to look at how the latest version of Snort and a graphical log tool called Afterglow work together. To begin, I'll look at the latest freeware version of Snort, as well as some tools that work with it, and then I'll take some output from Snort and put it into Afterglow.
Most Linux distributions are built to meet a specific purpose; address a specific audience. There are USB-bootable versions, live disks, and versions geared toward scientific research or desktop publishing. Ubuntu Linux is one of the few distributions designed around a philosophy.
Operating System: Linux IA32, AMD64/EM64T, FreeBSD x86
Release Date: October 19, 2006
If ever there was a topic that someone was qualified to discuss, it would be me talking about how open source companies need to balance the interests of their community while making money. In fact, our company is named Funambol because it is based on the Latin words funis (rope) and ambulare (walking) that mean a tightrope walker.
As I outlined in my last blog entry, there was a definite sense of urgency in migrating from Freespire 1.0 to something else. The distribution I settled on was openSUSE Linux 10.1--mostly in part from the fact that it was newly released this week.
As a regular reader of the "Debian Weekly News" I must say that I am very sad to see it go. So, it is with great pleasure that I hereby step up to the plate. Yes, please be welcome to the first issue of the "Weekly Debian News."
On October 18, Linux distributor Xandros was reorganized, resulting in the loss of at least five jobs and a change in CFOs. One source told DesktopLinux.com that ten employees had been cut from the small business, including staff in tech support, marketing, and sales.
While developing IP Firewall Chains, Paul Russell decided that IP firewalling should be less difficult; he soon set about the task of simplifying aspects of datagram processing in the kernel firewalling code and produced a filtering framework that was both much cleaner and much more flexible. He called this new framework netfilter. So what was wrong with IP chains?
The first beta of Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux has arrived early. Adobe's main goal was to create a player that is feature-comparable to its Windows and Mac OS versions. Unlike Flash 7 for Linux, this version is also meant to have proper audio/video synchronization.
This article describes the setup of a simple SSH client connecting to an AIX- or Linux-based SSH server that allows a typical, technically literate individual the ability to set up, configure, and operate a flexible means of tunneling data and services over the SSH service.
Is IceWeasel the solution to Debian and Mozilla trademarks issues? I don't know right now. I really think Debian have the right to fork Firefox or any other Free Software project but, in this case, I think it is better to keep using Firefox instead of IceWeasel. This is a brief list of the reasons:
Okay. The rumor's been out and about before. It goes something like this: Microsoft has a super-secret skunk works project building a version of Office for Linux. A good source, a former Microsoft person who is still tight with the company, insists anew that there is, in fact, such a project.
New NVPerfKit 2.1 Suite of Tools Offers Advanced Debugging, Visualization and Profiling Capabilities for Improved Cross-Platform GPU-Based Software Development
Because a picture can illustrate a program better than words can, screenshots are a fundamental of development and documentation. GNU/Linux has no shortage of versatile screenshot programs, both on the desktop or command line, but none is perfect for every use. I recently tried several screenshot programs. Here's my advice on what works best among the available options.
Linuxlookup has the announcment from the Ubuntu team announcing the Release Candidate for version 6.10 of Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Edubuntu - codenamed "Edgy Eft". The Release Candidate includes installable live Desktop CDs, server images, alternate text-mode installation CDs and an upgrade wizard for users of the current stable release.
Chief among Firefox's improved security is antiphishing protection, which steers users away from malicious Web sites by checking them against a database of known phishing scams. Firefox updates the database when a user goes online, much the same way that most antivirus applications regularly update their databases of known virus attacks.
