Build managers allow developers to better coordinate their coding efforts by providing an automatically generated current and working snapshot of an application, including a binary file for immediate testing. Build managers are the next logical step to source code repositories. Urbancode's Anthill build management server for Java applications provides build automation, unit tests, build tracking, and support for a number of version control systems.
Still, when I get down to it, I find other Linux distributions like SUSE Linux 10 and Xandros 3.0 to be better desktops. As an experienced Linux user, I appreciate that they give me easy access to the kind of control I want to have over any of my systems.
Just before the clock struck midnight on December 31, the German developers of Kanotix released their v2005-04 Linux build. What has everyone talking about Kanotix is its superb hardware detection and auto-configuration abilities on all sorts of i686 and x86_64 hardware. Being Linux-based hardware connoisseurs we couldn't help but to take Kanotix v2005-04 for a test drive.
The gist of Just Say No to Microsoft is to switch to Apple, or if you are "brave," to switch to GNU/Linux; and to switch from MS Office to OpenOffice.org or AbiWord. There are other books by No Starch Press and competing publishers that better accomplish the task of helping readers migrate data and program settings from Windows to either GNU/Linux or OS X.
Fifteen years to the day since Linux creator Linus Torvalds bought the machine that started it all, the first new Linux kernel of the year has hit the street only two months after its predecessor hit.
There's nothing like a good paradigm shift to get you out of bed in the morning, don't you think?
The forces are massing for some big changes in IT industry dynamics. We need this.
Where are you most likely to use Linux?
I would argue it's online, where you don't have to be worried about what's on the other side of the screen.
If your applications are coming from the Web, they could easily be Linux-based, and you would not be the wiser.
Open source software is off to a good start, but it won't revolutionize IT until the community gets serious about defining business frameworks and processes, says Charles E. Bess P.E. and EDS Fellow.
The announcement represents the most significant elevation of IBM's strategic partnerships with its key Linux Distribution Partners since it embraced Linux six years ago, a testament to a Linux market that continues to experience strong growth. The alliances are timed to tap the boom in IBM's Linux growth expanding its base of 12,000 enterprise deployments worldwide.
Google and Wal-Mart are both denying reports that the two are planning to market low-priced, Google PCs via Wal-Mart stores.
Spam appears to be a fact of life for most of the online world at the moment. Here is how I personally handle the filtering of incoming mail, using a combination of Pyzor, SpamBayes and Procmail. These tools each integrate nicely, and work easily with my mail reader of choice: mutt.
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure MyDNS, a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files like, for example, Bind or djbdns. This has the advantage that you can easily use web-based frontends to administrate your DNS records.
There was a season. The Linux, Mac and Windows operating systems of 2005 are characterized by diversity, openness and innovation.
A qualitative assessment of operating system security is subjective and your 'mileage may vary' based on present and past experience. The overall finding of this analysis is that Linux provides more secure capabilities than Windows.
Alarmingly, abuses of intellectual property laws have put software innovation in jeopardy. In the United States, the phenomenon of "software patents" has caused an increasing shift in the software industry away from an environment of rapid advances and creativity, toward a minefield of litigation, anti-competitive behavior and questionable ethics.
With a wave of new products on the way, this is the year that Microsoft Corp. has been talking about for years. But will the company's big bets pay off?
Free open source software (FOSS), while not pervasive, is being more extensively deployed within financial institutions in the UK. As far the UK financial regulators are concerned, the risks arising from its deployment are matters for the collective management by the financial institution and their technology providers. Should this be the case or should the regulators issue guidance on the risks arising from its deployment?
A new project has come to my attention and it sounds really interesting. Well, I say new, but I actually mean "new to me." Apparently the UTUTO project has been around since 2000. The site states, "Its first version, massively distributed in October of year 2000 in Argentina by Diego Saravia of the National University of Salta, was very simple to use. It worked from CD-ROM with no need of installation. It was one of the first "lives" of the planet." Distrowatch tells us, "Ututo GNU/Linux is a CD-based Linux distribution developed by Diego Saravia at the Universidad Nacional de Salta in Argentina, based on Gentoo Linux, and designed to be used by home/office users, developers, organisations and government users." What's more, it appears they develop versions for several architectures, install or livecd, available thru ftp, http, or bittorent. Their community consists of forums, irc channels, and a mailing list. Their site and irc channels are available for IPv4 or IPv6 and the site is available in five languages. They even have radio and tv broadcasts. This is either a large project or these guys never sleep! They released test version 2 of 2006 for the i686 on January 1 and we thought it'd be a good time to take a look-see at this exciting project.
An interesting thing happened last year: It appears that 2005 wasn't worse securitywise than the previous years. Sure, malware and hackers were as crazy as ever, but when I asked many of my computer security friends if 2005 was better or worse than previous years, every one of them said it was better
