Filed under
Software

But Spamhaus is no longer a 100% free service. Even small nonprofits are now expected to pay at least $250 per year. Now a new, free alternative to Spamhaus has arrived.

Linux is a way of life, not a clone of windows.

Filed under

toolbox.com/blogs: All too often I hear the phrase, if only Linux would do such'n'such like windows then it would be more popular. Generally those type of remarks only come from windows users.

Filed under
Linux

cnet.com: "[Insert year here] is the year of the Linux desktop!" That has been the Linux community's refrain since at least 2001. Yet it never comes true.

Linux Is A Socialist Plot

Filed under
Linux

linuxcanuck.wordpress: “From each according to his ability. To each according to his need.” The above is often given as the socialist credo. However, it is much older than socialism. It actually appears in the Bible in the book of Acts. How many times have you seen Linux websites ask for donations?

Is Mandriva Dead?

Filed under
MDV

gnuman.com: This is an interesting question one could ask about the Mandriva distribution, is it dead? The answer could possibly be maybe. It is not the first time that we have seen Mandriva on the brink of collapse, and quite frankly, if we go in terms of userbase it might be so.

2009: Year of the Linux Delusion

Filed under
Linux

itwire.com: An article has come out claiming (yet again) that 2009 will be the year of Linux, and bases this prediction on the fact that low power ARM processors will be in netbooks which won’t have enough power to run Windows, but then says these new netbooks will be geared to “web only” applications which suits Linux perfectly.

Mepis AntiX 7.01: Light, fast, and geeky.

Filed under
Linux

techiemoe.com: Although technically an off-shoot of Mepis Linux (which is in itself an offshoot of Debian, then Ubuntu, now Debian again I think) AntiX bears little visual resemblance to its parent.

Linux and the PC Mentaility

Filed under
Linux

kev009.com: I’ve heard the comparison between Linux and other UNIX like OSes a few times in the past. Of course it is a bit hard to compare “Linux” - which is a kernel - and the others which most often are complete operating systems. Many times they even share a lot of GNU userland tools, so I will disregard userland.

Linux's '09 Outlook: Everywhere, Even On Windows Machines

Filed under
Linux

informationweek.com: It sounded like a wild hook for a story, to put it mildly: In 2009, it is said, Linux will ship on more PCs than Windows. So I sat down with Jim Zemlin of the Linux Foundation to explain his reasoning behind such a statement.

Free Software Foundation's Richard Stallman Says Don't Call It 'Open Source'

Filed under
OSS

informationweek.com: GNU guru Richard Stallman sent me an e-mail the other day complaining that we erred by saying that the Free Software Foundation, of which he's president, promotes open source software. "We have never supported the idea of 'open source' because that idea denies the importance of users' freedom," he writes.

Linux Mint 6: More unique, still minty.

Filed under
Linux

techiemoe.com: Linux Mint is a spin-off of Ubuntu with some different visual polish and the inclusion of *gasp* useful multimedia codecs. I've been impressed by it in the past, so as you can imagine this release had a lot to live up to.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software.
