QEmu can run an OS inside another OS - for example, Windows under Linux. QEmu uses kqemu, an acceleration driver included in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn to run Windows at usable speed. Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn also includes a new version of rdesktop that can be used to start individual desktop apps from the VM on your normal desktop.
Ask most people who have made the switch to a libre software product like Linux or BSD and they'll tell you that we're in a fight with Microsoft and everything that the closed-source world represents. It's not just us - Microsoft certainly thinks we're in a battle as well.
With all of the FUD coming out of Redmond, Washington these days about Linux infringing on Microsoft's IP, I thought I'd do a little research and see if Microsoft has ever been guilty of stealing code or infriging on others' IP. The results weren't surprising. If you live in a glass house... you know the rest.
Examples of Microsoft stealing code and infringing on IP:
Nearly thirty years of growth haven't exhausted the potential of the REstructured eXtended eXecutor (Rexx) language. The first of the widely used "scripting" languages continues to expand its capabilities and platform range, and it makes for a particularly good match with AIX.
The beta release of Ubuntu Feisty, the latest release of the popular Linux operating system, has been delayed for a day because of kernel issues.
In an email to the Ubuntu developers list early this morning Tollef Fog Heen wrote: "The beta release [of Feisty] is delayed until Friday due to a kernel regression which caused problems booting quite a large number of systems.
I've been on the hunt for a good open source content management system (CMS) – something that is both easy to set up and use, and yet offers good customisation. I don't want my site to look like every other blog in the world.
One of the most notable changes in Feisty that I have been looking forward to is the updated Rhythmbox with its Jamendo and Magantune support.
Consumers and enterprise workers will not likely soon see cute marketing labels such as "Linux Inside" or images of penguins pasted on the outer casings of their favorite entertainment and communications products. Nor will products they buy be touted as using Linux in advertising campaigns.
This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses.
Novell is quietly launching a thin client offensive with Wyse Technology. Although I have criticized many of Novell's recent moves, this thin client approach is super smart.
Ellison claimed that Yahoo, which was previously a client for Red Hat, has now decided to buy Oracle's Red Hat clone and service package instead. This is news for Red Hat and Yahoo.
While it has bought Oracle Linux, Yahoo has said it will continue to buy Red Hat products and Red Hat says it will continue to supply them.
It seems that Larry has jumped the gun a bit with his enthusiasm.
Our team at LinuxForce recently put together a Debian server with LVM on a software RAID5 volume. This has been possible through complex installation procedures in the past, but today the Debian Etch installer is capable of handling such an installation if you follow the proper steps, which I outline in this article.
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.
Sometimes something appears that makes you scratch your head so much that you fear that you may inflict a self-imposed scalping, such was the dandruff clearing delusion caused by this site: www.linuxpersonas.com.
A chess engine is the actual program against which you play the game. A chess engine can take a move as an input, and after analysis, generate a move of its own as an output. Chess engines for Linux are comparable in strength to commercial chess engines available for other platforms. Here's a look at the features of half a dozen of the most well-known chess engines for Linux.
Novell's annual user event, BrainShare, took place this week in Salt Lake City, Utah. President and CEO, Ron Hovsepian sat down with Linux Magazine's Bryan Richard to talk about patent protection, responding to customers, and competing with Red Hat.
One of my tasks this week was to setup a web server for some sites currently hosted on the tragedy of the grid.
Editing HDR images on Linux is not so easy: the current situation of HDR image editing on Linux is so so. Especially tone mapping is possible, but not easy: the libraries are available, but there was no GUI, let alone an easy to use and user friendly GUI
Let's break this thick glass once and for all. Patching free operating systems like GNU/Linux with proprietary pieces where Free Software is not mandatory for world domination. And it sure is not mandatory for basic functioning of the system anymore either, so you can't exactly use the "RMS used proprietary UNIX to build GNU" argument anymore. We have the complete Free OS. We have three of them.
