I just witnessed a subtle, yet interesting, division in the Linux community this week. The catalyst for this division was none other than the announcement from the Desktop Linux Summit that Linspire is planning to offer, alongside their commercial offering of the same name, community-oriented versions of the Linspire distro to be known as Freespire.
Last year we had taken an in-depth look at ATI's PowerPlay technology upon the support within the Linux fglrx display drivers. Now that Fedora Core 5 has been out for some time, and there have been quite a few monthly releases since that point, we are now back today as we re-examine ATI's PowerPlay using once again the Mobility RADEON X300.
A clear majority of readers believe that a Linux desktop will one day be a viable alternative to Microsoft Windows, according to approximately two thirds of respondents to a lightning poll.
After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version. To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.
Minutes ago the developers of TO-Crossfire released the password for their password-protected rar archive distributed via BitTorrent during the last days.

On recent motherboards the PCIe 1x slots seem to be all the rage. Some motherboard manufacturers eskew extra PCI slots in favor of their runty PCIe cousin. But what are these used for? And why would you want two PCIe 1x slots instead of a healthy 3 or 4 standard PCI slots?
The Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a mechanism for virtualizing disks. It can create "virtual" disk partitions out of one or more physical hard drives, allowing you to grow, shrink, or move those partitions from drive to drive as your needs change. It also allows you to create larger partitions than you could achieve with a single drive.
Intec Automation is shipping a tiny ColdFire-powered CPU module claimed to be the smallest Linux SBC (single-board computer) with Internet connectivity, a reasonable amount of memory, and "massive control functionality." The WildFireMod measures 1.9 x 1.7 inches (49 x 44mm).
Whether Red Hat's $350 million purchase of JBoss proves a wise decision strategically or financially over the long term, it was one that Red Hat had to pull the trigger on if it hopes to compete in the higher-value business-software market.
Mozilla Corp. developers have yanked one of the most prominent features from the next version of their Firefox browser after deciding that it can't be finished in time.

Hardly a ho-hum week. CEO McNealy, Linspire and Xandros.
Marcel Holtmann has reported a vulnerability in the Linux Kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions. The vulnerability has been reported in versions prior to 188.8.131.52.
Currently I have 21458 photos according to digikam's database (which are using 13 Gb according to du ). When someone asks me to put some album in my web server I hate to lose my time exporting to html, generating thumbnails and resized 1024x768 versions of my pictures which occupy space in my HD that I'm usually hesitant to remove. So last saturday evening I started a new project: Creating a web interface to digikam.
Creating and reading PDF files in Linux is easy, but manipulating existing PDF files is a little trickier. Countless applications enable you to fiddle with PDFs, but it's hard to find a single application that does everything. The PDF Toolkit (pdftk) claims to be that all-in-one solution. It's the closest thing to Adobe Acrobat that I've found for Linux.
We've previously seen how to install the Jabber cross-platform, and open, chat server. Sadly - some people insist on using the closed source IM clients. What should we do?
This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently.
