Should You Release Your Code as Open Source?

Filed under
OSS

The first thing to keep in mind is that open source does not mean "free." You can open source your software without giving it away for free; how you do so depends on the license you choose, which I'll discuss in the section "Common Issues" later in this article.

The GNU "Lesser" General Public License gets some love

Filed under
OSS

With the introduction of the GNU GPLv3, the GNU Lesser General Public License (L-GPL) has seen much less attention. This has changed with the recent GPLv3 conference in Barcelona, and I think it has changed for the better.

Easing desktop Linux buying

Filed under
Linux

No one will argue with the fact that it is much harder to buy a personal computer with Linux than a Windows PC. But suppose it did not have to be quite that hard to get one? And suppose that the various vendors could all meet in the middle to lend you a helping hand?

Recovering from file system corruption using TestDisk

Filed under
HowTos

We've all been there. We press the wrong key, we do some silly mistake, and suddenly, one or more of our file systems refuse to work. Whenever this happens, the first thing we hear is "You should have made a backup", the dreaded sentence that we'll never listen to. Let's face it, we're stupid, and we don't backup.

Review: Levanta Intrepid M

Filed under
Linux

A good system administrator is always looking for ways to make life a bit easier.

I spent some time using the Intrepid M appliance, and found it to be a well-designed product. Too bad the pricing makes it unsuitable for some IT budgets. So, how does it work?

Xandros Desktop Home Edition 4.0 Review

After suffering through version 1.0 many years ago, I thought Xandros would be the least likely of the commercial desktop GNU/Linux distributions to succeed. Each subsequent release since 1.1 has changed my mind a little bit, and now with version 4.0 of its home desktop edition, I'm at last convinced that Xandros is positioned for success. This should be the desktop operating system that you recommend to your Windows-hating friends and family.
