You don't think of NASCAR fans as Linux users, so much, but a new wireless handheld device available for rent at select races makes them just that. The NASCAR FanView devices rented out by Sprint at Nextel Cup races are based on Kangaroo TV's IVT-200.
The ODF Alliance, an organization of companies supporting the adoption of the OASIS OpenDocument format, announced Tuesday that its membership had more than tripled in less than two months. Since March 3, its ranks have grown from 38 to 138.
The benefits of commodity hardware are well known. Competition among memory, storage, and chip providers has benefited the consumer and driven down PC prices. My belief is that the next big "open opportunity" is for the Open Source commodity laptop.
GoDaddy.com recently donated $10,000 to the OpenSSH project, which provides free secure server management tools utilized extensively by Go Daddy in its server infrastructure. This comes after moving all their services to Microsoft solutions. Is it too little to late to dress up that public image now in time for their ipo?
Managing a department is no picnic, but managing space on your desktop can be even more troublesome. At any given moment, you may have any number of applications open on the desktop at once. Each one carries critical pieces of your daily life. You've got your e-mail client, a spreadsheet or two, that speech you're working on and a project planner. Throw in a browser window or two and your desktop's a mess.
The following instructions describe the process for installing Knoppix Linux on a USB flash drive. This allows the OS to be booted directly from the flash drive. These instructions are designed to be performed from a Windows PC.
There are a lot of books that try to teach both object-oriented programming and the Java language to autodidacts, but few do it so effectively as Prentice Hall's Thinking in Java, now in its fourth edition. If you're totally new to computer programming, or if you have trouble concentrating on what you're reading, you may need a more elementary text, however.
Recently, a colleague and I were working together to resolve a bug in a piece of code she had just written. The bug resulted in an exception being thrown and looking at the stack trace, we were both puzzled about what the root cause might be.
LINUX EXPERTS are dismissing as FUD a claim by Russian Anti-Virus outfit Kaspersky labs that it has invented a cross platform virus that can eat Windows and Linux systems.
Enterprise-level features, flexibility and cost have always been key factors for organizations that choose open source over proprietary technology. For IT managers in the government sector, however, these benefits often take a back seat to another software characteristic: IT security. Is open source secure enough for the government's IT infrastructure?
Kanotix, the distribution derived from a few German developers, has come out with an Easter special of being the second release candidate for their 2006 edition.
The Mozilla Foundation has warned of a slew of critical vulnerabilities to its popular Firefox web browser and related products. The most serious of the flaws create a means for hackers to inject malware onto vulnerable systems.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the visible front of the current standards battle royale: in this corner, at 220 pounds, Open Document Format (ODF)! In the other corner, the 800 pound gorilla, Microsoft Office 12 XML format! Hopefully, we won’t get caught in the explosion.
The Linux market in China continues to grow, according to a new research report from IDC. And it is apparently growing partially at the expense of Linux nemesis SCO.
A week before the spring LinuxWorld tradeshow got underway in Boston in March, Novell's chairman and CEO, Jack Messman, was quoted in the trade press as saying that eventually, when all the dust clears, there would only be two commercial suppliers of the Linux operating system: Red Hat and Novell.
In the beautiful-irony department, I have just learned that my name and copyright now appears in the EULA (End-User License Agreement) of a Microsoft product. A vector-graphics editor called “Microsoft Expressions”, apparently.
