My reasons are not the price. Yes, free is appealing and $14.95 / year is by no means a large expense to anyone. My main reason is that Skype does not use a standard protocol for its communication. There are many other SIP options available, most of which use an open communication protocol.

Examine key parts of the Z shell (zsh) and how to use its features to ease your UNIX system administration tasks. Z shell is a popular alternative to the original Bourne and Korn shells. It provides an impressive range of additional functionality, including improvements for completing different commands, files, and paths automatically, and for binding keys to functions and operations.
Virtualization is a good practice for servers, since it makes things more secure, scalable, replacable, and replicable, all this at the cost of little added complexity. This guide was written during an install of a Supermicro machine with two dual-core opterons (64-bit), two identical disks (for RAID) and a load of memory. Why OpenVZ and not XEN or the recent KVM kernel module? Well, XEN is not very stable for 64-bit architectures (yet), and it comes with quite a bit of overhead (every VM runs its own kernel) due to its complexity. KVM is very simple but restricts you to run a kernel as one process, so the VM cannot benefit from multi core systems.
It has come to be expected. Linux and open source news in 2006 was a potpourri of topics that included Windows-Linux interoperability, wild acquisitions and corporate spending sprees and stories of enterprise-level companies buying into open source and Linux en masse.

The regular readers of this blog will remember me mentioning a competition being conducted by Worldlabel.com in conjunction with the OpenOffice.org documentation project for creating Open Source templates. Guess what..., On the eve of the New Year, they have released the winning template. Using Worldlabel templates in OpenOffice.org is easy.
The City of Amsterdam said Friday it will spend euro300,000 (US$400,00) testing open source software in two administrative districts in 2007, in a potential blow for the city's current main supplier, Microsoft Corp.
The Symphony OS project released a new version of their unique system on December 13 to the surprise and delight of many in the Linux community. Many feared the revolutionary new desktop might be doomed due to a lack of funding, but developers chugged along through hard times and presented us with the culmination of months of work. Their labors show through in this release. As we're fans, Tuxmachines took Symphony OS 2006-12 for a bit of a test drive. So what's new this time?
IT departments can get pretty catty. There's plenty of behind- the-scenes sarcasm about inexperienced users (such as digs about PBCAK errors - short for "problem between chair and keyboard"), but that pales in comparison to the vitriol they direct at each other in the Windows/open-source debate.
For those of you who have not followed the comment thread on the 'On Favouritism, Apologies, and Black Helicopters' story: I there promised to write an article about all the customisations I do on KDE to make it look and (more importantly) behave in my own preferred way; as a sort of Christmas present, so to speak (it is not like it is a fast news day today). Read on!
Now, an OS like Ubuntu, needs a guidebook like Ubuntu. "Ubuntu Linux For Non-Geeks" by Rickford Grant, is just what the doctor ordered. A Pain-Free, Project-Based, Get-Things-Done Guidebook.
It's not always about you, you know. Except in 2006, it was.
It was all about YouTube, the Internet phenomenon that felt like the final elimination of the increasingly blurry line between the providers of entertainment and the consumers. On YouTube and its multiplying online kin, you're both.
In the never ending battle against the open source proponents and the closed source confederates an argument that always seems to add fuel to the fire is technical support. Indeed for many businesses the ability to provide support for a computing solution is a critical part of the decision making process.
Nouveau is a community project that is working on producing open-source 3D display drivers for NVIDIA's graphics cards. Nouveau is not affiliated with NVIDIA Corporation and is an X.Org Foundation project. While this project is still far from being completed, for this holiday special we are sharing some of our first thoughts on this project from our experience thus far. This article today will also hopefully shed some light on the advancements of this project so far.

As a Christmas gift to my brother I decided to do a little research and figure out how he could experience some of the old-school gaming enjoyment that I grew up with. Remember the old games? 2D. Bad sound. No story. Yes, those were the days! Forget all that World of Warcraft stuff, I’m talking about old-school DOS based games.
This is perfect for a lazy day. Groklaw member luvr sends us his review of three Ubuntu books, “Moving to Ubuntu Linux,” “The Official Ubuntu Book,” “Ubuntu Unleashed.” Enjoy. Maybe today is a good day to give Ubuntu or Kubuntu a whirl, if you haven't already?
