I've been tracking the evolution of Microsoft FUD for nearly 10 years now, and wrote a short history of the subject a few months back. But even I was impressed when I came across Microsoft's latest effort in this department: it's truly a masterpiece of its kind.
When Microsoft announced the end of support for Windows 98 and Millennium Edition on June 30th, there was a lot of talk of these users migrating over to Linux Desktops. According to OneStat.com, this is approximately 4% of the total PCs in the world. With Linux clocking in at only 0.4%, this means for every ten PCs, only one has Linux installed.
Going on the advice of Pmouse, I downloaded Xara Extreme this morning. Slick is the word that comes to mind. The install on Ubuntu is not hard at all. First, you’ll want to download the package. Once you’ve gotten it on your computer, open up a terminal session.
The Alacarte menu editor is one of the major additions in GNOME 2.16. Already previously available in Ubuntu and other distributions, Alacarte adds a degree of customization that has been generally lacking since GNOME dropped its previous menu editor more than five years ago during the early 2.x releases.
We knew him as lilo. He was the founder of the Freenode IRC network, a place where many open source projects established a real-time meeting ground. Freenode is where we work, play, and share. It is where many a small idea has grown into a large project.
Robin Miller recently published a story on Newsforge about "Stan", as an example of a situation that demonstrates proprietary software is a danger to business continuity. I found this story interesting since I think Mr. Miller came close to correctly identifying a core issue.
With Linux making deeper inroads into corporate data centres, the recent LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco gave attendees some first-hand information about how open source is maturing to handle more critical business workloads.
HP-hired investigators searching for the source of boardroom leaks allegedly tried to plant a trojan horse program on a CNET reporter's laptop, but apparently the attempt failed because the reporter was running Linux.
There are now several SUSE Linux books on the market, each with a slightly different angle. Some concentrate on SUSE itself without going into depth on general GNU/Linux topics, others are more for reference than cover-to-cover reading, and some are comprehensive behemoths that try to document every possible use and purpose for Novell's GNU/Linux distribution. O'Reilly's SUSE Linux definitely falls into the latter category.
CNET's Tom Merritt shows you how to give Ubuntu Linux a run on your own computer without installing a thing. View Here.
Mandriva has released Corporate Server 4.0, a version of Linux aimed at businesses. The release is part of Mandriva's ongoing push beyond its roots as a provider of Linux for end-users to challenge Red Hat and Novell in the market for Linux for enterprise servers.
When Tony Losey came to the 3Sixty Group in 2003 he saw that, like many small companies, the manufacturing firm didn’t have much in the way of advanced systems. The organization didn’t have a lot of money to throw at IT, but Losey zeroed in on open source as the key to keeping the company competitive.
I’ve just installed Inkscape, an open source software alternative to Scalable Vector Graphics programs such as Illustrator or Corel Draw.
A friend of mine phoned to ask if I thought he should install Ubuntu Linux on his Macs - a 1.33 GHz G4 iBook currently running OS X 10.4 "Tiger" and a 1.25 GHz Power Mac G4 tower with OS X 10.3 "Panther" installed. Does Ubuntu Linux make any sense for Macintosh users?
MOST of us who found our way to Software Freedom Day at the UP College of Engineering last Saturday had to take a circuitous route to get there. Even on a hot, muggy morning, it was a trek worth making.
Last month we were introduced to LDAP in general and Fedora Directory Server in particular. Today we'll walk through a simple Fedora Directory Server installation to learn your way around FDS.
In a recent article, Ted Haeger, director of Novell user communities asks the question: Can Linux Desktops Live in an Active Directory (AD) world? For most businesses, that's not a question, it's a demand: How do I get Linux desktops to work with Active Directory.
Knowing a handful of programming languages is seen by many as a harbor in a job market storm, solid skills that will be marketable as long as the languages are.
Linux vendor Red Hat on Sept. 18 will roll out a new series of open-source subscriptions that include offerings from recently acquired middleware provider JBoss. The products will be immediately available to Red Hat's global distributors and resellers.
Fantastic! As long as you have a WAV or MP3 file, the SoX package, and the Gstreamer gstreamer-plugins-ugly package installed, you can use these scripts to convert from MP3 or WAV to AMR, and back from AMR to WAV. Perfect for creating ringtones out of sound clips or favorite songs! Full Story.
