At least 32 people were killed and more than two dozen wounded at Virginia Tech university on Monday in the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history, media said.
Fox News, CNN and the student-run university newspaper gave the death toll as 32. Officials earlier said at least 22 people were killed.
It might sound like a rather strange thing to do, but sending yourself email from the command line can prove extremely handy in a lot of circumstances. For example, I have a script that runs every week on my server that emails me and reminds me to copy the latest backups off that actual machine (in case of hard drive failure).
We recently received the following note from Thaddeus H. Black, a Debian developer. We thought he had some interesting things to say about Debian and its development process, so, with his permission, we'm sharing his thoughts with you...
To: Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
From: Thaddeus H. Black
I have read with interest your several recent remarks on Debian.
This tutorial introduces you to some of the essential concept of modes, shows you some of the powerful text manipulation functions available, and teaches you how to use the built-in search, replace, and spell check facilities of Emacs.
April 16, 2007 - For users wanting a secure, feature rich alternative to Microsoft Windows, Canonical Ltd., the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today the Thursday release of Ubuntu version 7.04.
This tutorial is meant for beginner to intermediate Linux users. Advanced users will probably find it boring and know more options than we’re going to discuss here, which will lead to some sort of flame war based on which switch is best.
Even though I’m a Debian user, I usually recommend Ubuntu to most people looking for a Linux desktop distribution. I recently got handed an IBM ThinkPad T30 that was donated to my school, so I thought it was about time I took my own advice and install Ubuntu.
Things are obviously very exciting at Canonical Ltd. this week as the latest version of Ubuntu, the Linux operating system it supports and maintains, goes live on April 19.
Originally codenamed Feisty Fawn, the OS is now version 7.04 and includes a slew of upgrades on the desktop and server fronts, said Canonical director of operations Jane Silber.
This Tuesday, I have the good fortune to give a presentation on N. Smith, A. Capiluppi, and J. Fernandez-Ramil’s classic journal paper “Agent-Based Simulation Of Open Source Evolution,” from Software Process: Improvement and Practice 2006; 11: 423-43. Well, if anything from 2006 can be a classic, F/OSS is the place.
Here's an overview of the different reviews and writeups about Debian 4.0 (Etch) - so far stories from Digital Realms, Softpedia, Lunapark6, Linux-magazin (DE), Linux.com and screenshots at LinuxQuestions and Go2Linux. Blog overview at LinuxWatch.
Digital Realms impressions:
The KDE Control Center, as I'm sure you're aware of by now, is a versatile and robust control interface for the KDE Window Manager and provides a whole host of configurable options to the end user. While the KDE team did their best to make the interface as user friendly as possible, there are some things that you can do in the Control Center that are not for the beginning user.
Oxygen folders have changed already 3 times since I first started the project back to 2005. That’s because “folders” are really important, and together with “file sheet” and basic actions, they really define the look and feel of the desktop.
A new release of GoboLinux is out, which among other things contains glibc 2.5, X.Org 7.2, GCC 4.1.2, KDE 3.5.6, and the Linux 126.96.36.199 kernel. This is the first release candidate for GoboLinux 014 so expect more changes shortly.
The FISL congress is over and it was great talking to the enormous amount of people who showed interest in the XO learning laptop and the OLPC project. It was nice to see people’s interest turn into large smiles by the time I was done explaining the project and answering their questions.
I’ve long believed there’s a general phenomenon that underlies the free software movement. It’s “volunteer-driven, internet-powered collaboration” and I think it will ultimately touch every industry that has any digital workflow. And lets face it, that’s pretty much every industry.
The phenomenon has three key elements:
1. Freedom-driven licensing.
Put your sleuthing caps on dear readers, we've got a new case for you. A blurry video has surfaced of a Sony Ericsson P990i running a mobile version of Ubuntu. With the aid of a soldering gun and "special software," someone by the name of Wizolabo seems to have produced a working copy of the favored Linux distro running on the favored SE superphone.
KDE was present at Cebit 2007 in Hannover, the world's largest IT fair. The booth was located inside the LinuxPark in Hall 5, where Linux New Media had given us and other open source projects the opportunity to present their work.
Open source software provider OpenLogic last week announced the results of a survey focusing on the most recent draft of the GPLv3 (General Public License).
I don't even post a link to it, because you'd almost have to be dead not to have seen it somewhere already. If you haven't seen it yet, a simple Google of "tux500" will do. This is the project where two bloggers have started a massive campaign to raise $350,000 to put a Tux sticker on the side of a car that will be racing in the Indy 500.
