Next year will be a big one for Linux, with new platforms and opportunities in the data center. We expect to see Linux maintain its torrid development pace, with major new enterprise releases from Red Hat and Novell as well as Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE.
Don't dare ask Linux advocate Eric Raymond when he plans to run out to pick up his shrink-wrapped box of Windows Vista. Mr. Raymond is not alone. The Linux faithful were quick to dismiss Microsoft’s Windows Vista launch Thursday, saying it poses no threat to the adoption of the open-source operating system.
As some of you may recall, I am a native resident of Indiana and very proud of it. So I took it a little personally when I read the CRN story about the IDC study that revealed that Indiana school districts still prefer to purchase Windows desktops over Linux desktops, when given the choice.
Xandros is a distribution based on Debian that is meant for home users and small businesses that use older versions of Windows (98, ME, 2000) while letting those users utilize all of their saved information from Microsoft Office by using CodeWeaver's CrossOver Office, which seamlessly installs and runs a variety of Windows' programs. Xandros is specifically designed for people who have only known and used Windows.
Marc Fleury, senior vice president of Red Hat's JBoss division, sat down with eWEEK Senior Editor Darryl K. Taft at the JBoss World conference here Nov. 20-22 and discussed a variety of subjects including increasing the Red Hat investment in JBoss R&D, evolving the JBoss code base and governance model, hiring, technology, and the Red Hat "cuddly penguin" growing some teeth.
Puppy Linux was guest-of-honor at an "Affordable Community Computing Workshop" this week in the Philippines, where participants assembled and took home ultra low-cost, PC-like computing devices.
Thick client-based business applications require rigid security regulations where different classes of users receive a predetermined set of access rights. This article explains how to build a flexible security model for Rich-Client Platform (RCP) applications by leveraging features provided by the Eclipse platform.
One of my blog readers ask me personally about which Ubuntu distribution that he should use, whether its Ubuntu 6.06 LTS or the latest release, Edgy Eft. As for my personal opinion, it depends on your own use.
I'm writing this article on a game console. A PlayStation 3, in fact, running the extraordinarily competent OpenOffice.org 2.0 Writer application on the Linux operating system. It wasn't even that difficult to get to this point; but the question is, should you bother, and what does the availability of Linux mean to the average gamer considering a PS3 purchase?
This year in IT has been anything but dull as industry titans Bill Gates and Scott McNealy prepared to exit stage right, long-time bitter foes Novell Inc. and Microsoft Corp. cuddled up and Hewlett-Packard Co. saw a spying scandal shred its reputation.
Linux users have been salivating over Trolltech's promised Greenphone for the better part of a year. The "open" Linux phone platform, powered by Trolltech's Qtopia 4 embedded software stack, is bundled with a Qtopia software development kit (SDK) designed to kick-start mobile Linux application development. The first batch of devices has now shipped, and I spent a couple of weeks with a review unit. While it's an interesting package, it's only a first step and in no way a finished product.
LDAP services exist in a TCP/IP context. It's an Internet service that uses daemons, requires an administrator, configuration files and structure. In some ways LDAP resembles a Linux file system with a root, limbs instead of directories, etc. After this, you may find the subject floating over your head, but stay with me for a while.
As a die-hard GNOME user, I never really looked at KDE as a good alternative. This is probably complete ignorance on my part. I have never used KDE for more than a day or so or unless the situation required it. KDE is definitely an excellent desktop environment. Here are ten things I have found that I really like about it.
Runesoft is considering to port Ankh to Linux. Ankh is an adventure game awarded with the "German game of the year 2005" award.
I’ve never been the type to use an *abomination mouse (as I call them) and I prefer not to use an abomination keyboard, but there are a lot of you out there that seem to enjoy them so I thought I would share the steps on getting them to work.
CheckGmail is a system tray application that checks a Gmail account for new mail. CheckGmail is an alternative Gmail Notifier for Linux and other *nix systems. It is fast, secure and uses minimal bandwidth via the use of Atom feeds.
For anyone who has studied computing or ICT in a UK school, this will probably come as little surprise. My classmates and I (like many others) were taught by a teacher with little specialist knowledge of the subject (she taught French the majority of the time), following a curriculum that predominantly consisted of instruction in the correct use of the Microsoft Office suite.
Just following the recent World Usability Day and a few months past the third birthday of OpenUsability I took some time to talk to Jan Mühlig, one of the OpenUsability founders and to get an inside look at some of the history of the project, how it works from the inside and some of the current direction.
For the last 15 years, Linux has grown from a small hobby of a university student to a powerful system which is rapidly gaining popularity every year. But unfortunately in majority of cases Linux based Desktop solutions are less preferable then the Windows or Mac based. Why ???

In addition, the project will send T-shirts and other OpenOffice.org merchandise to many of the other entrants.
