As Ubuntu is the best thing that happened to me in the last year or so (I was a Fedora user before), I will take a moment and write this article about it.
No. Not me personally. It’s the threat that we, as Linux users and developers, hear constantly. It’s on the forums, mailing lists and IRC. These ridiculous threats, that if something in the Linux operating system is not fixed or handled to their liking, they’re running back to Windows. To me, it seems to be getting worse and worse.
There a plenty of linux live cd, check out frozentech.com, scroll down the list and you will see this line:
Currently displaying 315 LiveCD/DVDs
With various tools such as Kadischi, linux live script, Ubuntu Customization Kit etc, you can easily come out your own live cd. What you required is just the matter of time to fine tune and customized your software included in your live cd.
I hate software licenses. When I read a software license, what I see is a bunch of officious, mind-numbing lawyerly doublespeak. Blah, blah, blah.. kill me now.
I recently wrote a simple bash script to incorporate a lyrics database into some of my music-handling scripts. I took advantage of one of the benefits of open source software by finding an existing application that performed this task and inspecting the code to see how the developers did it.
This tutorial shows how you can install and configure Beryl on an Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) desktop with an ATI Radeon graphic card. With Beryl, you can make your desktop use beautiful 3D effects.
The Quake 4 1.4.1 Beta patch is now available for download. We hope everyone enjoys the new content, features and fixes!
I have stopped producing the LiveCD development builds to save space and time it takes to get out the daily builds. They are set to be replaced by the SDK LiveCD builds which will be built less frequently, usually during major sugar API changes and along with the stable builds. The first one is now available at
Microsoft 's bid to have its Open XML file format approved as an ISO standard took another step forward Monday when that organization put the measure on a voting ballot sent to its member countries.
One of Red Hat Inc.'s leading Canadian partners believes the latest version of the open source server will prove to be a boon for his firm. “It think it's going to be great,” Paul Kerr, president of Toronto's Scalar Decisions, said of the release this month of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.0.
“I think it will mean a big impact for our business.”
A little over five months has gone by since the Microsoft-Novell deal was signed but some details still remain unknown.
A post on OSNews regarding Novell's official response to the recent draft of the GPLv3 led to a discussion on the merits (or lack thereof) of the Novell-Microsoft deal. Not surprisingly, most respondents have a negative view of the agreement.
The Defense Department has launched a new program to encourage the use of open- source encryption software within DOD systems.
Suspending a computer means to turn it off in a special way, so that when you power it on again it resumes what it was doing, like nothing had happend. There are two common ways of suspending a computer: suspending to RAM and suspending to disk.
Suspend to disk
A lot of websites have jumped at the chance of showing you the latest pieces of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn. But they all have focused on the same things, the very same features that Ubuntu has touted as being the staple of Feisty Fawn. Yet there's a lot more under the hood that really makes life in Feisty a lot easier.
Mark Radcliffe joins us this week to give his expert opinion on the latest draft of GPLv3. Mark is a friend and one of the industry's premier IP attorneys, especially with open source licensing questions. He is outside counsel for the OSI and chairs Committee C in the GPLv3 drafting process.
In other words, he knows his stuff.
OSNews reports that OS/2 is 20 years old today. Wow, that makes me feel ooooold. My first experience with OS/2 was the 2.0 version (I think) around the end of highschool. According to Wikipedia 2.0 was released in 1992, so that's about right. I think I remember going with Fred to go over to someone's house to copy it even (lots of floppy disks).
The US government's plan to boost energy savings by moving Daylight Saving Time forward by three weeks was apparently a waste of time and effort, as the technological foibles Americans experienced failed to give way to any measurable energy savings.
While many CIOs like the idea of Linux in principle, most of those who have shifted have done so in limited ways. Committing to Linux on servers can be justified through cost and performance considerations, but when it comes to the desktop, most enterprises are still reluctant.
This week, Distrowatch Weekly has redone their top 10 distributions and included PCLinuxOS inside of that top ten for the first time ever. In fact, when I began using PCLinuxOS, it was around 15th on the distrowatch charts. If you look at 2005 vs. 2006 charts, you’ll see that out of the top 15 distros tracked, PCLinuxOS was the largest gainer over the course of that year.
