I'll tell you one thing about the Southern California Linux Expo: there is certainly no shortage of enthusiasm amongst the attendees. During Aaron Seigo's talk this morning on the progress of the KDE 4 desktop, specifically the Plasma prject he is working with, I nearly fainted from lack of food.
Looks like a theme for 2006 is beginning to emerge: Intellectual property issues. Not only was GPL3 still a hot topic this week, but we found a very ambitious open source project completely laid out on the tiles due to fear of infringement. One thing seems certain: Open source isn't going to be putting the lawyers out of business any time soon.
Cheapest SLI motherboard reviewed, X1900 graphic cards roundup, Sytrin Nextherm PSU 460, and the FX60 is again in the limelight.

You know what I like about the open-source software movement? About the time I figure I need a free something, I find out someone has already written it.
The problem is people even do not know how Linux or UNIX understands (knows) which program to run. I think many new UNIX Sys admin also does not understand the process. The method used by SHELL is straightforward but often creates confusion for new Linux or UNIX users. Therefore, I thought it is time to document it online.

Now a days, you see a lot of excitement over XGL - the X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL. What this means is that you can see a flurry of activity on the desktop front, including special effects which would put even the upcoming Microsoft Vista OS to shame.
Running X with direct GL rendering has never looked so good. With Compiz and XGL, X11 can pull off effects until now only available on Mac OSX. You can grab both along with some instructions on setup...
icculus announced the SecondLife Linux alpha testing on Linux! Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents.
The first Technical Working Group for KDE has been elected. It will consist of seven long-time contributors to KDE and become operational in the few next days. The group has been elected by the members of KDE e.V..
I decided to have a closer look at this mysterious beast and see if I couldn't get it to do something a little more useful. So I hooked it up to everyone's other favourite database, MySql, and knocked out a little database browser. Here's how I did it.
