If you've been running Linux for a few years (from before all the clever point-and-click stuff was added to the Linux desktop) you probably find yourself regularly having to open a terminal window to issue a couple of commands to get things working properly.
Ian Murdock founded Debian GNU/Linux nearly fifteen years ago, and today it provides the foundations for many well-known distros such as Ubuntu and Knoppix. LXF caught up with Ian, who currently chairs the Linux Standards base, and asked him about Debian politics, leadership and the rise of Ubuntu...
LXF: How happy are you with how Debian has turned out?
Open source technologies already permeate most data centers, and their influence is spreading. However, data center managers who wouldn't think twice about dropping a new Linux server into a rack feel very differently about building an open source firewall as the main barrier between their own network and the great unwashed. Security remains outside the open-source comfort zone.
Recently published research by Venture Development Corporation (VDC; Natick, MA, USA; www.vdc-corp.com) indicates increasing adoption of Linux in embedded system-development projects.
Within four days, I’ve reformatted my hard drive and installed Ubuntu and Kubuntu in quick successions…twice. So that’s a total of four Linux installations in four days. Once again, I was haunted by the ghost of indecision. Should I go for Ubuntu with the clean, minimalistic Gnome, or embrace Kubuntu with the fancy, aesthetic KDE?
ntop is a network traffic tools that shows network usage in a real time. One of the good things about this tool is that you can use a web browser to manage and navigate through ntop traffic information to better understand network status.
Last month I wrote a piece saying that I was going to try KDE for a month (I’m a big GNOME fan!) and then report back on my experiences. I must admit I’m feeling relieved to be back with GNOME as I never really felt comfortable with KDE, but that’s not to say it was all bad.
High-performance computing (HPC) has moved from the domain of government and academic laboratories to being an essential component of the design process. Today, it is almost unthinkable to develop the key components of a car, airplane or even many consumer products without computer-assisted structural or impact analysis.
So, you've turned your back on traditional mail clients and get your mail fix via Gmail these days. The only problem is getting to all those old message that are stuck in your old email client. One way to stuff that old mail into your shiny and capacious Gmail account is to use Mark Lyon's Gmail Loader.
MINIX, as originated by Andy Tanenbaum, is an operating system that has its roots and heart in academia as a tool that teaches you how kernels really should work. Recently, however, with the advent of version three of this rock solid OS, the focus is on making a production ripe embedded distribution.
Much like Microsoft's influence over software developers in the 1990s, Red Hat has seemingly rallied all of the major open source application providers to support the company's forthcoming online store--known as the Red Hat Exchange.
Over the past few years I've used the venerable XMMS application for playing back all my audio content. After reading recently that this project has been mothballed, seeing no future updates, I decided to try the successor project XMMS2. Here's how I got on.
A new wave of emerging Linux application providers are doubling and even tripling their channel investments this year as they move to take Linux from a cult status relegated to business niches to a mainstream end-to-end solution stack.
At this time, Java Swing apps won't run properly under Beryl or Compiz. The app comes up, but it comes up completely blank. It's a known issue, and Java engineers are working on it. But until it hits my box, I still need to run Java, and I'm definitely not giving up Beryl.
A few weeks back Dell invited ideas from the world at large about what it should put on sale - in other words, what did the so-called "community" want?
The reason I wanted to attend BrainShare this year, specifically, was to find out for myself if Novell was really a Linux company, or if they were just talking the talk.
Imagine my complete and utter surprise when I discovered I didn't need to actually attend the show to learn the answer.

It’s been a little over two full months that I’ve been using Ubuntu Linux as my sole operating system (cold turkey switch from Windows) and I think it’s about time to share some thoughts, some links, and hopefully a little knowledge that I’ve picked up along the way.
