The GPL 3 may yet change into something that Linus Torvalds can bless, and if that happens, Linux and Solaris may trade code after all.
Zimbra is a (partially) Open Source Collaboration Suite, including mail and calendaring features available online within IE 6.0 and Firefox 1.5 (Win, Mac, Unix, Linux) and also for clients like Outlook, Thunderbird, (iCal and Sunbird for calendaring).

The goal of Open Ajax is to standardize around a common set of widgets, interfaces, and plug-ins to Eclipse so it can morph into an industrial strength rich web development environment. And with the standards, any Eclipse-compliant Ajax toolkit should be able to plug into any compliant Ajax run time, regardless of browser client or server deployment platform.
Martin Krafft's The Debian System: Concepts and Techniques is not a general introduction to GNU/Linux. Instead, the book focuses only on Debian-specific concepts and tools. I found little overlap between the material in this book and several general Linux-related books I already own. From fundamental concepts to advanced techniques, most topics in this book are covered in great depth, so it is likely to have a long shelf-life on most readers' bookshelves.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.1, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
For the average home computer user there is no need to install a complex package such as the Internet Software Consortium's BIND DNS or DHCP server, since there are far simpler lower resource tools to use, for example dnsmasq. For those who you wish to learn how to use ISC's BIND and DHCP, for example as a learning exercise, this is how I got it all to work in Debian Sarge, the current stable version of Debian GNU/Linux.
In the glamorous world of office suites, the new features often get all the attention. The Bases, the Impress Redux and the New Toolbar Metaphors of OpenOffice.org 2.0 get all the cover stories and the center spreads in Office Suite Weekly, while the slight changes that make life easier often get ignored. It's a sad story.
I'm here to change that; a bit, at least.
According to reports, there will be a "Ubuntu desktop Linux distribution, based on Debian and the Gnome desktop, it is known internally as 'Goobuntu.'" King goes on to state, "Google has confirmed it is working on a desktop linux project."
I wish I could buy this report, but I can't.
While Firefox and Thunderbird are the poster children of open-source Internet application success, the program suite they sprang from, Mozilla, was reborn Jan. 30 under a new name: SeaMonkey.
The state of Massachusetts has found a new chief information officer, putting Louis Gutierrez in the hot seat as the government continues its push toward adopting the OpenDocument Format (ODF).
Linus Torvalds may have his doubts, but Alan Cox is supporting the next version of the GPL. Cox told ZDNet UK that he thinks many of the changes in GPL 3 are sound.
The KDE marketing group is pleased to announce the release of SpreadKDE.org, the new home for KDE's promotional activities.
Do you know someone or someone who knows someone that works somewhere deserves recognition for their work with KDE. We've been interviewing individuals for some time now, but what about the associated organizations? Do you know someone to nominate?
