This is not a review. It is not fair to review a work in progress. It is not a preview either. Such has already been done. Besides, all too often both views degenerate into a list of everything that does not yet work. And! And! Even reviews of released Linux distributions often do little more than enumerate features that haven't been added yet, but are already present in the author's current favourite. So I won't cover in any great depth what is and is not in Dapper. If you want to mark for yourself each stride forward, please visit the testing pages linked to above. It will tell you what you need to know, and has pretty screen-shots besides.
In a CNET story reporter Renai LeMay wrote, "Novell may be evangelizing Linux and Open Office on the desktop, but more than half of its own employees can still boot Microsoft Windows. DesktopLinux.com contacted Novell Director of Global Public Relations Bruce Lowry for Novell's comment on the CNET report.
Just as video failed to completely kill off the radio star, I think it's probably premature to finger open source as the murderer of commercial software. Apache Foundation chairman Greg Stein, on the other hand, had no problem giving a five- to 10-year timeline for packaged applications at EclipseCon in March.
Novell Inc has asked the court hearing its slander of title case against SCO Group Inc to put a hold on proceedings while SCO's non-compete agreement and copyright infringement claims against Novell's SUSE Linux are referred to the International Court of Arbitration.
I ended it with a suggestion about how to use the tools in OOo to combine documents much more efficiently than you could hope to do with Reveal Codes. What follows is an expanded version of my suggestion that reinforces, yet again, the advantages of using styles in many situations.
Another major advance is the unified scripting solution, Kross. The cross-language support for scripting (hence the name) allows for scripting in both Python and Ruby.
General way to implement tcp servers is “one thread/process per connection”. But on high loads this approach can be not so efficient and we need to use another patterns of connection handling. In this article I will describe how to implement tcp-server with synchronous connections handling using epoll() system call of Linux 2.6. kernel.
If I were to duplicate my Microsoft office computing environment at home, , it would cost me a small fortune. Instead, I have the equivalent functionality at no cost beyond the cost of the computer itself. My home computer uses the free Linux operating system and free application programs.
I'm glad to announce SUSE Linux 10.1 Codename "Agama Lizard" RC1. We will make sometime next week an RC2 - and only distribute the delta ISOs of any RCs, and update the factory tree as well. Full Announcement.
Wondering how to create a triple-booting system that involves Windows and two Linux distributions -- one that uses the GRUB bootloader and the other using LILO? Here's a hands-on procedure that lets you do just that, without tweaking cryptic configuration files and messing with geeky commands.
Static routes improves overall performance of your network (especially bandwidth saving). They are also useful in stub networks (i.e. there is only one link to the network). For example, each LAN (located at different offices) is connecting to HQ IDC (internet data center) using single T1/LL/Wan link.
Novell Inc has said it remains committed to JBoss Inc's open source middleware stack despite the acquisition of JBoss by rival Linux distributor Red Hat Inc.
Have you ever wondered who the people behind Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu are and what they do? Or what they are like? Behind Ubuntu was inspired by the People Behind KDE series.
Sekou Diakite has released an alpha version of a KDE Look and Feel for Java. This is an interesting step forward in Linux/Unix desktop integration since Java applications can now use the KDE/Qt libraries for drawing Java widgets and even directly use existing KDE widgets.
U.S.-based software company Novell Inc. will look at acquisition opportunities as it expands its business distributing and supporting Linux-based open-source software, the company's chief operating officer said.
Google late Wednesday opened up its much-anticipated Calendar service to the public in beta form, complete with Gmail integration and SMS notifications. Code-named CL2, the free service enables users to quickly add events and reminders, send invitations and share their calendar with others.
