I've recently liberated an old Inspiron 4000 laptop. It's a 700MHz Pentium 3 with 310Mb of memory. So after cleaning the disk it's got 15Gb or so used and plenty of free space. So it seemed like a perfect opportunity to try out Ubuntu and experiment to see how close Linux is to me being able to make the switch.
It's an astonishing experiment: Design a cool computer, unlike anything on the market, loaded with innovative features. Manufacture it for not much more than $100 apiece, persuade government officials in developing countries to buy millions of them, and hand them to schoolchildren. Then stand back and see if you've done what you hoped – created a revolution in the way kids learn.
Due to numerous issues brought to light by our first test release we will not be releasing PCLinuxOS 2007 final at the end of the month.
KDE programmers are at it again. They have released an update for KDE-stable to 3.5.6. Of course being that Kubuntu is cutting edge, there are new packages ready for your pleasure.
I’ve tried out Mandriva 2007 Metisse Edition and have discovered a few things which I would like to share. However, in my opinion, it’s still not ready for prime time: there are still a good number of bugs which need to be fixed.
Sure, for Linux there’s free games like Frozen Bubble, Tux Racer, FreeCiv etc., but the big commercial titles are rarely released for Linux. The company TransGaming Technologies tries to fill out this need for commercial Windows-games by having created an application which makes it possible to play such games without official Linux-support regardless.
Since our Nouveau: A First Look article last month, new developments continue to come out of the Nouveau camp. Among the changes in the past month is glxgears now working on NVIDIA NV4x hardware, the pledge drive now being completed, and the Fedora Project announcing its intent for including Nouveau in the upcoming Fedora 7 release.
FVWM-Crystal aims to create an easy to use, eye-candy but also powerful desktop environment for Linux or other Unix-like operating systems. I wanted to meet the developer, Maciej Delmanowski, in order to find out more interesting stuff and secrets about his project.
If there is mass take-up of free and open source software in any country over the next few years, that country is likely to be China. On the FOSS front, China is quietly making progress.
This article is a small evaluation of Epiphany web browser and basic comparison with well known Firefox. Epiphany is the web browser for the GNOME desktop. Its goal is to be simple and easy to use.
When Eric Raymond published the first Halloween Memo, "Open Source Software: A (New?) Development Methodology", some wondered if it was authentic. Later, Microsoft sort of confirmed the authenticity in its own style. We need wonder no more.

The PCLinuxOS Magazine Project is pleased to bring you an extra publication for this last week in January that takes a look at PCLinuxOS 2007's first public test release.
Ubuntu and Kubuntu have been two of the largest Linux distributions touting themselves as a “desktop Linux” lately. Today, I installed a different desktop Linux. I installed OpenSUSE on one of my computers. I was bracing myself to have problems with installing OpenSUSE. To my surprise, I didn’t have a single problem.
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) and Free Standard Group (FSG) merged on Jan. 21, creating the Linux Foundation, a single entity aiming to take responsibility for Linux standardization, promotion, and protection. LinuxDevices.com wasted no time interviewing Jim Zemlin, the new mega-organization's executive director.
I'm not giving up maintainership of Gwenview anymore, in fact it has been decided that Gwenview will move to kdegraphics for KDE4! This is what I call great news! To wet your appetite, here are two mock-ups of what Gwenview 2.0 will probably look like.
It seems the folk over at Ubuntu Software have released an ultimate edition of Ubuntu which is aptly called Ubuntu Ultimate Edition.
Recently I assembled a 64 Bit system thrilled to be able to run Fedora Core in 64 bit mode. After much sweating the machine was done and ready. I had already downloaded the ISOs and was ready to go. I put in the first CD and started the install. But then the bottom dropped out.
When doing documents using general-purpose word-processing software like Microsoft Word or OpenOffice.org Writer, you are capable of doing just about every formatting you’d feel like and add just the type of content you would like, where you like. These editors are fine for most purposes, people tend to format documents, sometimes a lot. Having to even consider how to format a document, is what LyX is all not about!
I’ve known about, written about and even participated in the Ubuntu Studio project (in a limited capacity) in the past. After hanging around in the project’s IRC channel for a bit I got to chat with Ubuntu Studio’s Project Manager! I did get Cory Kontros to take a bit of time with me for a quick interview on the status of this upcoming project.
