The low-cost laptop, which in the coming weeks will go into wide-scale production, could have applications in needy U.S. school districts. However, the economic impact of a laptop at that price point could scare off potential manufacturers. Ultimately, educators believe all efforts should be made to bring inexpensive technology and devices to students who need them.
One-sided decision making and a lack of communication from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) contributed to the breakdown in the relationship between the organisations, says Shuttleworth Foundation programme manager Jason Hudson.
Counter Strike is one of the most popular online First-Person Shooter (FPS) games. It is estimated that at any time there are more than 200,000 gamers simultaneously playing the game. Counter Strike has been developed for and it is mainly played on Windows PCs. But recent advances in the Windows emulation software Wine have made it possible to run it on Linux as well.
This tutorial shows how to install and use VirtualBox on Fedora Core 6, CentOS 4, and OpenSuSE 10.2. InnoTek VirtualBox is a family of powerful x86 virtualization products for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU Public License (GPL).
With the release of Vista and the curiosity people have with trying other operating systems in light of its release, I have found myself knee deep in a number of operating systems over the course of the past few months. BSD, Linux, even OS X. But when it comes to Linux, there are still a number of users feeling overwhelmed as they become confused with this Linux distribution’s way of doing things.
Looking for an integrated development environment (IDE) for your PHP coding? Zend Studio, which launched its latest version 5.5 in December, offers an impressive feature list that can increase the productivity of even novice programmers.
DVD playback is not a feature that is installed by default due to license restrictions. This will show you how to install DVD playback capability on your Ubuntu linux machine.

The article of the week should be Lunapark6's Preview of Beryl 0.2.0. And this is scaring me. A lot. Beryl will distract developers from the real problems of Linux and of the real software in general.
As ICD head analyst Walter Dickweed put it: "Releasing a new kernel on Superbowl Sunday means that the important 'pasty white nerd' constituency finally has something to do while the rest of the country sits comatose in front of their 65" plasma screens." Walter was immediately attacked for his racist and insensitive remarks about Geeks.
The truth of the matter is that the FSF does not have the authority to ban Novell from distributing Linux as they are compliant with the current GPL.
Hollywood's love affair with DVDs will face its biggest test beginning today as Wal-Mart unveils a movie and TV-show download service with participation by all major studios. They won't work with Macintosh, Linux-based computers, with iPods, or a conventional DVD player. What good are they then?
The Certified Service Provider (CSP) program initially encompasses three offerings: core build and deployment; systems health checks; and implementation and management of the satellite provisioning tool. The latter service is targeted at customers with more than 15-20 servers.
With the advent of Ubuntu 6.10 I figured it was about time to give this, the current Linux community “darling”, another try. As some of you know I am OS/Platform agnostic, and while I do not work day-in-day-out on a Linux system, I like to keep current on the various distros and know what is happening amongst these sometimes militant Linux camps. To that end, it was time to give Ubuntu another look.
Since I installed openSuse 10.2, I’ve had an extremely annoying problem. The problem was that mostly when I started my machine, the booting process would jam at the place where it says “Activating Device Mappings” or “Loading Kernel Modules”.
Mac people and Windows people seem to have more mutual scorn than open source and Windows people have for each other. Just one more reason to believe that open source is an opportunity for Microsoft, not a threat.
The software world is divided between advocates of open-source and defenders of proprietary-code software. While both parties have more or less rational arguments, it would be useful to take a look into how the issue affects every computer user.
Linux kernel version 2.6.20, released on Sunday, offers access to a new framework meant to provide a user-friendly, high performance platform for Linux virtualization in the future.

I would be lying if I said I was a big fan of Daylight Savings Time (DST). If you are in IT, you are patching all your time critical systems right now. This intersects Linux of course because Linux is affected by this rampaging ... err... change.. One of my senior technical people internally wiki'ed this handy document about the Myths of DST:
I know that this makes me sound like a graybeard but I can remember when Novell was a bigger name than Microsoft. They weren't exactly competitors then but they weren't friends either. As Microsoft grew larger so Novell became a pale shadow of its former self. Then when Microsoft unveiled its New Technology operating system for servers and the business world it became a direct competitor to Novell. By that time Novell just didn't have the exposure and market share to effectively compete. It became a niche player in an ever shrinking niche.
