I just love OpenSSH. That is the single greatest tool on unix-like operating systems, as far as I am concerned. I’ve blogged about SSH plenty. SSH tunneling, SSH forwarding, SSHFS and more. Needless to say, I believe that SSH is the single most flexible and powerful package on unix-like operating systems. And, with this post, it just gets better.
I just got an Asus V6Va. It’s a handsome laptop. The screen is just about the best laptop screen I’ve ever seen. A glossy-but-low-glare, 1400×1050 pixel, 15″ screen on a low-profile, lightweight chassis.
SAM Linux is a distribution we had never heard of in the past, but with the 2007 edition of SAM coming out this week we couldn't help but to give it a try. SAM Linux is based upon PCLinuxOS and features a LiveCD with the Xfce 4.4 desktop. SAM Linux 2007 does include Beryl/XGL support, WINE, Flash 9, RealPlayer, Java, and much more. It is a clean distribution and looks extremely nice.
I have been very pleased up to this point with Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, as you can see from my migration-assistant thoughts, Restricted Drivers Manager, and the excellent WiFi support. Through my adventures so far, I haven't come across much hardware that Ubuntu 7.04 didn't recognize by default or hardware that Feisty Fawn blatantly thought was evil.
Neuse River Networks’ web site, www.neuse.net, is hosted with Open Source software. Jim Ray prefers Ubuntu Linux mainly because it can be loaded on any PC within 3 years of age in 1 hour from scratch – installed, patched, and functional. he same process would take twice as long if using Windows. By charter, Ubuntu is and always will be free software, and will never have any licensing fees.
The Stockport system gives 30,000 pupils across the town a wide range of services including calendar and content-management functions. The system uses a single login screen to make access to the system easy and it will provide "dynamic use of the internet in a learning environment", and include security features that should block inappropriate content.
The Beta version of Ubuntu 7.04 just hit the streets last night, and it is my pleasure to introduce you guys to the upcoming features of the final version (due for release on April 19).
In a brief hearing yesterday, linux programmer Hans Reiser pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder of his estranged wife Nina. Nina, who disappeared last September, hasn't been seen since dropping her children off at Reiser's home for visitation.
Novell and Microsoft were hailing their partnership this week at Novell's BrainShare conference at the Salt Palace, but not everyone sees a happy marriage.
The software industry for years has pushed guidelines for vulnerability disclosure. Those "responsible disclosure" efforts have had some effect, but security researchers maintain control over the process, Mozilla security chief Window Snyder said in a panel discussion at the ShmooCon hacker event here.
Recently i managed to install ubuntu on my laptop(IBM Thinkpad Cel 1.4Ghz 256 MB RAM) , which was a very fast machine when i purchased it three and half years back , however things in computers change very fast and now it was a slow moving machine for todays resource hungry applications .
At the FSF general meeting today, Richard Stallman announced that the third discussion draft of GPL version 3 will be released on Wednesday and will be open for public comment.
I put a straight Feisty Ubuntu installation on my fastest machine (1Ghz :roll: ) yesterday. I don’t have to tell you that I’m not a real big fan of Gnome or the default Ubuntu environment, but I have to admit that things are looking very good.
I was thrilled to see a slew of new Beryl packages land in Ubuntu yesterday.
There’s been a furious amount of activity from the MOTU and Beryl upstreams to get these packages ready for Feisty inclusion - cleaning up copyright issues as well as getting the packages themselves into first class order. Now the rest of us can test Beryl simply by:
The 126.96.36.199 stable kernel release is available. It contains a number of bugfixes and all 2.6.20 users are recommended to upgrade.

One of the major changes mentioned in yesterday's release announcement for the Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn Beta was "excellent wireless networking support". As I haven't yet blogged about the 802.11abg WiFi support in Feisty Fawn nor has it been covered on Phoronix, I decided to talk about it now with the Feisty Fawn beta release.
I installed Ubuntu 7.04 beta 1 just to see if it all works.
I used the alternative install, “just a matter of preference”, and kept my /home partition in tact as usual.
Installation went fine, but when I was done the resolution was too low: 1280×1024, I wanted 1400×1050
First I decided to try the “Restricted Drivers Manager”. Its in System > Administration.
One of the great things about writing for FOSSwire is that you have a great excuse to try out all of the latest free and open source software games (and end up spending a couple of hours ‘researching’ each one).
I recently discovered a great game called X-Moto. It describes itself as:
What do you do with an old computer? Say, a 386-generation PC running Windows 98 that hadn't been patched in years, with a 20-Gbyte hard drive most likely infected with all manner of viruses, spyware, and other maladjusted programs?
