If you try to find some zingy Mark Twain or Dorothy Parker quote to open an article on shortcuts in OpenOffice.org, you'll find that there's just not much there. Few people of wit have chosen to opine on shortcuts. Those who have done so tend to think shortcuts are the path straight to hell. I, on the other hand, think they're grrrreat! At least, the OpenOffice.org shortcut features are. I'll go over two of my favorites in this article.
Yesterday TechNewsWorld published an opinion piece authored by Rob Enderle where he opines, “Why Linux May Never Be a True Desktop OS”. This is a rebuttal to that article.
Never forget that while he was unable to right Sun in recent years, McNealy wasn't just an industry giant. He changed the IT world forever.
In 1982, Scott McNealy founded Sun Microsystems with three graduate student friends -- Andy Bechtolsheim, Bill Joy, and Vinod Khosla from Stanford University.
I doubt they knew they were making history.
Open-Xchange, Inc. today released a comprehensive feature update for the community edition of Open-Xchange Server -- adding more than 100 improvements in the usability and integration capabilities of the leading open source collaboration software and also released the core content under a Creative Commons Deed.
The Free Standards Group is due to launch version 3.1 of its Linux Standards Base, delivering the first fruits of its LSB Desktop Project to create new standards for Linux on the desktop.
Open source software allows businesses to use cutting edge code without licence fees. Sadly nothing comes for free, and a lot of scaremongering has followed its rise.
Imagine the fate of your company rests on your completing your new Linux project on time. You have a crack team of first-class developers, but they're all .Net programmers. What are you going to do? Admit that Windows is better that Linux? Cry? Resign? No, you're going to install Mono and save the world!
Even though I swore I'd keep Fedora Core around for a while, it only took 3 months before I replaced it with Suse (again). It's all Xgl's fault. The Kororaa Live CD is very cool. Since Xgl was created by a Novell engineer, and there are Xgl binaries for Suse, and since Suse is coming out with a new version, and (fintally!) since Xgl hasn't made it into Debian Sid yet, it made sense to install Suse to use as an Xgl testbed.
I got brave and updated my beloved gentoo's xorg from 6.8.2-rsomething to the modular 7.0 this morning. Among many others, I tested my gimp, openoffice, mozilla, and my games. Nothing seemed broken. In fact, things seemed just fine. ...Until I fired up my trusted xawtv-3.95. It had problems. I was desperate enough to download the cvs snapshot of xawtv4 from February to test.
Sometimes the game is over even though somebody on the losing team is still running like mad toward home plate. XP may be Microsoft's last OS.
So far today there have been only two stable kernel releases. The announcement for 22.214.171.124 appears to have been swallowed by the net, although it contains a fairly large number of fixes (22 in the version posted for review) spread throughout the kernel. 126.96.36.199, instead, goes back to the "single security fix" mode.
Linux and open-source technologies are here to stay and will continue to make inroads into the financial services sector, speakers from both the vendors and Wall Street communities said here at the Linux on Wall Street conference.
Even in the age of globalisation, there is something extraordinary about this week's court case pitting the European Commission against Microsoft over its use of the Windows operating system.
Scott McNealy stepped down as Sun Microsystems Inc.'s chief executive officer after failing to stem losses at the company he founded 24 years ago.
Is the world ready for another community Linux distro?
That's the question being asked and answered today at the 4th Annual Desktop Linux Summit. Once known as a community-supported alternative to the Linspire distribution, the Freespire name is about to rise again from the ashes of obscurity--only this time as a distro completely sponsored and endorsed by Linspire itself.
