By day, 27-year-old Sander Jensen -- originally from Holland -- works for ESI Group in Alabama. In his personal time, he scratches his own itches by creating free software. I discovered Jensen's Goggles Music Manager recently and decided to try it out, and pick Jensen's brain to see what motivates him to write free software. Here's what I found.
Four mobile handset makers are teaming up with two cellular operators to develop a new Linux software platform for mobile devices.
PHP is, in my opinion, the best computer language for developing almost any kind of web application. The authors of “PHP 5 Power Programming” apparently agree—they’ve written the most in-depth guide to the changes and new features in PHP 5 I have ever seen.
After a recent pullback in Novell shares and meetings with company management, Banc of America Securities analyst Kirk Materne suggested that the time is right for a new chief executive officer.
KDE made two security announcements today, the KDM Symlink Vulnerability is a potential local exploit on systems using KDM as their login manager. Artswrapper return value checking vulnerability affects Linux 2.6 systems that have artswrapper installed SUID root.
Hiding beneath the surface of your web browser, email and instant messaging lies a phone book for computers on the Internet. We call it Domain Name Services or DNS. It looks up the names of other computers and calls them to chat, shake hands or whatever PCs do with their own kind.
Open-Xchange, Inc., developer of Open-Xchange Server 5, and ChatterEmail, today announced a joint initiative to promote standards-based mobility solutions for Smart Collaboration™.
KateOS 3.0a1 was release several days ago. I'd always admired KateOS so much, that I just had to take a look. With lots of new updates and bleeding edge application versions, KateOS 3.0 is bound to be their best offering yet. I test drove KateOS today and although they haven't implemented many customizations yet, a lot of their future plans are beginning to take shape. They are featuring things like Xorg 7.1, gcc 4.0.2 and Xfce4 4.4beta1.
One day while I was having one of my favorite drinks, one of the Dudes came in very excited and told us that the latest victim of the sea, the USS Proprietary, was floundering offshore. Most of the people in the bar were not surprised. We had been expecting something like this for a while.
IBM is donating some of its IT management wisdom to the Apache Software Foundation. But there's more to it than just goodwill. You could say that Apache is Big Blue's open source muse, or at least one of them.
If you use a version of Linux that comes with Yum, you are more than likely familiar with it. For those of you who aren't, it's a program that can either be ran with or without a GUI and that is made to install, remove and update packages on a system.
The development of SUSE Linux 10.2 is now officially underway with the release of the first alpha build: "SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 is available. It has one major problem, but apart from that it is highly usable. The installation using the GUI interface does not work, please select 'Text Mode' when booting from CD media."
Thousands of developer hours behind Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) could make it close to impossible for the Ubuntu operating system to grab the third spot in the Linux server market.
Developers are still kicking the tires of the newly released Java Enterprise Edition 5, but early adopters say the new platform makes good on its architects' pledge to greatly simplify Java development and deployment.
Ten years ago, there wasn't much of a World Wide Web to exploit, but there were still hackers--or, more accurately, crackers. Following his run-in with the law, Mitnick put his powers of persuasion to good. ZDNet UK caught up with the ex-cracker before his keynote speech on the "art of deception."
The GPL'ed first persion shooter Nexuiz has been released in version 2.0! The new version includes a 21 level single player campaign system, 5 new maps, and much more.
Version 2.2.1 of gimp-gap, the GIMP animation package, was silently released last Friday. This release features mainly bugfixes but also some new features.
Open source software will take away 22 per cent of the traditional software market over the next five years, according to research firm Gartner.
I may qualify myself as a power user sometimes - I'm not afraid to go dabbling in a system merely using a command line interface and an alien looking text editor (alien looking to those who think Notepad is pushing it in terms of bareness). Still, some very enjoyable experiences are still difficult to have under Linux - for purely technical reasons.
I, along with most of the country, enjoyed the new Disney/Pixar release of the summer. The movie was great, but the commericalization and over-saturation are lowering the "cute" factor for me.
