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.
Develop 3.4 has been released, bringing many new features to KDE's Integrated Development Environment. The first major release in over a year closes more than 500 bugs.

If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a new Ubuntu-oriented project that’s been making waves: install.exe. In short, it’s a way to install Ubuntu onto the same file system as MS Windows without repartitioning your drive. Justifications include minimizing the risk of data loss during repartitioning, a more user-friendly installation process, and eliminating the need of burning a CD to install. However, is there truly a need for an Ubuntu installer for Windows?
One of the advantages of using GPLed software is that anybody who wish to use or modify the code can do so without fear of any repercussions. Ditto for the documentation of the software. This has at times tempted many a book author to release their books under a liberal license and make their efforts available for free in an electronic format.

One of the most common questions asked by newcomers to Linux is "Which is better, KDE or Gnome?" The answer commonly given is, "It depends. Try them both and see which one you like best." It's a reasonable answer, because it costs nothing but time to try them. I'm going to tell you which one is better.
I recently finished installing Gentoo on my PS3 and I have to say it was a very pleasant experience. It did not take as long to install compared to the typical Gentoo installations. This was the third and favorite distro that I tried out on my PS3 after installing Yellowdog and Fedora Core.
Established in 2006, the college aims to provide a specialised environment for Year 13 students to focus on computers and their wide range of uses. Campbell says that rather than teaching how to use proprietary applications, the college focuses on teaching skills using open source software.
This is Part 2 of a series that pits Microsoft's latest wares -- Vista -- against Linux's fair-haired boy -- Ubuntu. When we last saw our fearless curmudgeon, he was busy preparing a level playing field for Vista and Linux to play -- and work -- together on.
Working with Fedora, after a year with ‘other distributions’ was quite a culture-shock. The Fedora world is so strange coming from Ubuntu/OpenSUSE; entering the Fedora world meant I had(have) to literally figure (learn) things from scratch. However, some similarities exist, thankfully, and of course the internet help(s)/(ed). The following is a brief installation review for getting Fedora Core enabled with other extras that we have come to expect from our distros.
Barely a week after a U.S. judge approved a landmark antitrust agreement with Microsoft, company executives were swapping e-mails suggesting Dell deserved a beating for its growing interest in Linux, according to documents filed with a state court.

The unification of the Free Standards Group and the Open Source Development Labs into the all-new shiny Linux Foundation has drawn a lot of attention this week. But while a lot of people are interested in the motivation behind the merger, I am wondering what the outcomes of this move might be.
Fun is a pervasive feature of software development, not only for open source programmers but in the area of commercial software development too: Open source developers that are paid for their work are observed to be very motivated and prepared for future effort, especially if they enjoy their development time.
These screenshots are took from the GNUstep 1.0 LiveCD, released on Nov. 6, 2006. No matter how nostalgic might I be, the GNUstep 1.0 desktop looks exactly like a Linux desktop back in 1994.
