Drawing Great Logos in Inkscape

Filed under
HowTos

First and foremost, keep things "fun" but not circus fun. Keep things cool. Stick with about 3 or 4 colors and gradients of those hues if you can. Don't add too many graphical items, but don't add too few.

Why Binary-Only Linux Kernel Modules are Illegal

Filed under
OSS

As soon as it’s clear that you’re distributing a binary blob that, by your intent, uses anything in the kernel apart from the standard userland system call boundary, you’ve distributed a derivatve work and the GPL terms apply.

As Linux servers continue to pervade data centers at increasing rates, one of the biggest challenges to strike IT managers is getting those servers to work well with their existing Windows systems.

Should I Really Care About Linux?

Filed under
Linux

I'm not writing this to totally bash Linux. It's not that I'm against it, but I just have to examine what my real motivation is. I literally have everything that I need and more with Windows and OS X, so why throw something else into the mix?

Processing RAW image files on Linux

Filed under
HowTos

The easiest way to sound like a professional when you talk about photography these days is to grumble about the deficiencies of RAW file converters. The ability to save pictures in RAW format rather than JPEG or TIFF is what distinguishes a "pro level" camera from a consumer device. But rather than mentioning your camera's specs outright, the shrewd move is the heavy sigh followed by lamentations about your tireless search for the perfect software to properly manipulate your beautiful work. Let's take a look at how to do it using Linux and open source.

Easing kids into free software

Filed under
OSS

A few months ago I went in search of educational software written for Linux. I built her a machine from old spares and wanted to introduce her to the world of open source software. I was astonished at the amount of open source software for kids out there.

Novell Says SLES 10 Has Impressive First Ten Days

Filed under
SUSE

If the first ten days in the aftermath of the launch of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, the brand-spanking-new server operating system from Novell Inc, is any indication, then perhaps there is finally some hope that Novell's plummeting NetWare business will not take the company down with it.

Linux-ize Your Notebook

Filed under
Linux

Notebook PCs and Linux are learning to get along better than ever before. Linux has come a long way since its initial inception as an academic development project undertaken by Linus Torvalds during his college years. It's no longer the sole province of the enthusiast crowd or just a hobby horse for academia. In fact, this progressive platform has become the poster child for the Open Source movement.

Filed under
HowTos

Want to protect your SOHO machine or LAN from rootkits and malware, but want something a little more real-time than simply running Chkrootkit or another rootkit detector after the fact? Consider OSSEC-HIDS, an open source host intrusion detection system.

OLPC Sugar: The Best Of All the Project?

Filed under
OLPC

I do not believe in the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, a.k.a. the "$100 laptop". I couldn't possibly believe in a "handmill laptop", and I don't believe this is the solution for the 3rd world countries. I very much liked (given the intended audience) the proposed design and some mockups.
