I recently performed an experiment at the request of my husband, GeekTimeLinux Dave. He was preparing to review the new Xandros distribution, which has been described as the perfect distribution for a Windows user trying to make the switch to Linux.
You no longer have to be an uber-geek to run a Linux server. With the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, Novell has at last put out a product that's as easy to install, administer and use as a Windows server--in some cases, even easier.
It's a new day for Mozilla. Only a few days after OneStat reported that its Firefox Web browser has reached nearly 13% market share worldwide, the open-source software development organization this morning released Beta 1 of Firefox 2.0. With this release, Firefox devotees will be widely testing the next version of the browser.
I recently had a chance to install the latest Kubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake) on a desktop computer with a 64-bit Athlon processor. In the article I’ll try to cover the issues I had with this configuration as well as the reasons I have chosen Kubuntu to do the job.
The first thing I'd like to say before I level criticism at Ubuntu is that I adore it and have been running it on my laptop since Hoary beta. It's a fantastic OS and is doing great things. However,...
Ever see a free software program or GNU/Linux distribution that you have to guess how to pronounce? Ever hear your friends or fellow LUG members argue over how to properly say "Ubuntu" or "Liferea?" Perhaps even GNU/Linux itself (guh-NOO LIN-ucks) gives you pronunciation nightmares.
Firefox 2 Beta 1 is a developer preview release of our next generation Firefox browser and it is being made available for testing purposes only. Firefox 2 Beta 1 is intended for web application developers and our testing community.
Microsoft has ended all support for Windows 98, 98SE, and ME. And, when they say ending all support, they mean ending all support. This also includes security updates. So, you can either start hauling your older systems to the junk yard after today's last Microsoft patch day, or you can upgrade to Xandros 4.
Emulex Corporation announced that its LightPulse family of HBAs and drivers are supported as part of the new SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 platform from Novell.
The Software Freedom Law Center has released an opinion assuring developers that they can legally implement OpenDocument Format (ODF) in free and open source software. OpenDocument Format is a free file format for saving and exchanging editable documents, spreadsheets, databases and presentations.
After two very competant and thorough bids have been submitted and evaluated it was decided yesterday that the venue for the 2007 Debconf will be Edinburgh, Scotland.
Skype 1.3 is able to use ALSA natively. How to make it use it, on a "conservative" system which was using ESD and OSS only? (That was the case with a Debian Sarge installation.)
The top 13 logos have been posted to the final folder. 2 wildcards are slated to be chosen by Thursday this week and that voting will kick off on Friday or Saturday.
This document explains some of the uses of djvulibre implementation of DjVu for creating quality DjVu documents in linux. DjVu format features bitmap document compression and hypertext structure.
One of Morocco's first government departments to start the move to free software has chosen to switch its servers to Mandriva Linux and is looking at switching desktops to Linux in the near future in a move that could save them as much as 80% of their acquisition and support costs.
Perhaps there really is no better time than the present when it comes to Linux gaming and graphics development. There are hundreds of game titles available for the Linux platform and hundreds (if not thousands) more are accessible using products like TransGaming Technologies Cedega portability platform. Best of all, these games can be played with all the trappings of modern high-end gaming, including Serial ATA, PCI Express, and even ATI's Radeon X1900 series or Nvidia's 7 series flagship GPUs.
This week I finally learned how to use Bit Torrent, and I downloaded two free-licensed open-source movies: Elephants Dream by the Orange Project and The Boy Who Never Slept by Solomon Rothmon (who is credited as Producer, Writer, Director, and who plays the title role). Both are interesting as first ventures into free-licensed open-source filmmaking, but the contrasts are more striking than the similarities, both technically and aesthetically.
European Union regulators fined Microsoft Corp. an additional 280.5 million euros ($357 million) for antitrust violations, saying the world's largest software maker flouted an order to scale back its Windows monopoly.
Linux has the benefit of a steady barrage of new applications, utilities, software suites and tools -- as any casual perusal of freshmeat and SourceForge shows. One new bundle of software, the moreutils package by Debian developer Joey Hess, stands out from the rest. Moreutils is a collection of small, general-purpose tools that Hess says "nobody thought to write 30 years ago."
