No one had broached the subject. My inquiries with girlfriends and colleagues led me down a path into a revealing and sensual world as yet undiscovered. I discovered intimate bedroom secrets of why some women are explicitly attracted to those lovable fellows who prefer the penguin.
Part of what prompts this diatribe is the oh-so-predictable reaction to Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols' column this week on DesktopLinux, where he succinctly lists four reasons he believes Linux has fallen behind Windows. To accuse SJVN of being a shill for anti-Linux forces? How dense can you be?
Ubuntu Satanic Edition is not another distro, based on Ubuntu (as of now). It’s applying new themes, icon, wallpaper etc. You need to have Ubuntu installed before you apply Ubuntu SE.
Phishing schemes are proliferating, and this year may be the worst. Yet most companies remain in the dark about this threat, which can be squelched with encryption. One solution to the problem: TrueCrypt.
This year promises to be a big one for Linux, at least according to predictions by analysts and pundits in the early part of this decade. Whether or not these predictions pan out, here's a rundown of Linux and open source happenings you can reasonably expect to see in 2007.
The other day while on holiday I happened to cross the path of one of my favorite distros out there, just to see where things stood on their RC builds, and low and behold they had finalized their product and now they have officially released Dreamlinux Multimedia Edition 2.2 available for download. As excited as I was, I was curious as to why this hadn't been on Distrowatch, but honestly oversights from this small distro like communicating to Ladislav about the latest offering wouldn't surprise me.
Also: Dreamlinux 2.2 MULTIMEDIA EDITION
First, let me thank the hundreds of people who have taken time to email me about TUX. Virtually every message praised TUX and talked about why it was needed. Well, I agree. The issue is how to make it possible.
I recently had a friend using Ubuntu who’s time/date was constantly being set back to UTC, much to her frustration. Here’s how to change this behavior.
If you buy a computer, you often pay for Microsoft Windows even if you didn't ask for it and aren't going to use it. This article shows you how to return your unused Windows license and get your money back, freeing yourself from the Windows tax.
The closing of Fedora Legacy Linux returns us to the question of linking community support with the bottom line. Now Novell is piling on, linking its latest lead in Linux download statistics directly to RedHat's decision not to raise its contribution to the Legacy project. The claim is subject to dispute.
The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project will showcase its self-powered, low-cost, XO laptop computer at the 2007 Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. The project aims to distribute -- free of charge -- millions of Linux-based laptops to needy children around the world.
If you have only ever used Windows and you are attempting to install Linux on your own, perhaps because you have never met another Linux user, then the Redhat installer was not the most friendly place to be. Anaconda is beautiful, and fantastic for technical users, but not particularly newbie friendly. So in the beginning, Ubuntu bypassed all this.
Konqueror tries to establish a connection using IPv6 when that fails it uses the reqular IPv4 protocol. So to speed up the loading of web pages just...
Being mainly a GNOME user on the desktop, I have been waiting for two main utilities I can find in KDE: a font installer comparable to the one in the KDE Control Center, and a multiple item clipboard comparable to Klipper. I'm still waiting for the font installer, but Desktop Data Manager (DDM) may eventually be a Klipper replacement.
I realize, with everything else I’ve written, that I have never actually outlined how to upgrade your machine between releases. You can upgrade your machine in just a few short steps.
Samba software, is a free, open source implementation of networking protocols to share files between UNIX/Linux and Windows computers. Samba comes with different types of permissions for share. Try to remember few things about UNIX and Samba permissions.
Streamtuner is a point-and-click GUI browser for the thousands of Internet radio streams available today. It lets you play streams and manage your favorites in a single window -- like a Linux tuner for Internet radio.
In a few years time, it will be impossible to study the history of home computers since everything at the time was proprietary; both in terms of the physical hardware, and all the software that ran upon it since most of it is encumbered by software “protection” to prevent copying.
Drupal 4.6.11 and Drupal 4.7.5 are available for download. These are maintenance releases that fix problems reported using the bug tracking system, as well as two security vulnerabilities.
Upgrading your existing Drupal sites is strongly recommended.
Drupal 4.7.5 can be downloaded from http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/drupal/files/projects/drupal-4.7.5.tar.gz.
Exaile is a media player aiming to be similar to KDE’s AmaroK, but for GTK+. It incorporates many of the cool things from AmaroK (and other media players) like automatic fetching of album art, handling of large libraries, lyrics fetching, artist/album information via the wikipedia, last.fm support, optional iPod support.
