I thought of a friend's ex-husband when I learned this week that despite Microsoft's promises of a new openness and its assertions regarding interoperability for its OOXML (formerly known as OpenXML and also known as EOOXML) and despite having offered it as a *standard*, it seems that it's another case of promises, promises. From what I've been reading, which I'll share with you, I think it's time to ask ourselves some serious questions: does OOXML really qualify as a standard? Or is it yet another monopoly-enabler in the guise of a standard?
This guide covers the installation of XenExpress and the creation of virtual machines with the XenServer Administrator Console. XenExpress is the free virtualization platform from XenSource, the company behind the well known Xen virtualization engine. XenExpress makes it easy to create, run and manage Xen virtual machines with the XenServer Administrator Console. XenExpress can run up to 4 virtual machines at the same time with a max. total amount of 4GB RAM. The XenExpress installation CD contains a full Linux distribution which is customized to run XenExpress.
Today it was a good day for me. I was asked to install Linux on a dual processor (64 bit) machine with SCSI and RAID. It sounds easy and it is easy also, but to install Linux on a machine like this was a dream from beginning.
By its own developers' admissions, Linux supports more hardware devices out-of-the-box than any other operating system but that won't stop a slew of new drivers being added in upcoming releases.
So, you got the new iPod that you wanted for Christmas, but you're no fan of iTunes. No problem -- you can cast off your iTunes chains and manage your music entirely with Linux using Amarok. Amarok gives you everything you need to manage your music, from playing to burning music CDs to managing your portable music player.
Floss for economic health. That's the conclusion of a newly released European Commission study on the impact of Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (Floss) on the European IT sector.
In this interview with SearchOpenSource.com, Tom Carey, an attorney with Boston-based Bromberg & Sunstein LLP, waxes nostalgic on the SCO trial -- where it was, what lessons it has taught users of Linux and open source software, and what SCO's rumored bankruptcy could mean for the major players.
You think that you know every game that KDE ships? How about KNetWalk? It's a nice little game - not just for system administrators. The chance that you have it already installed is high, it's in the kdegames module!
We all know IDC is basically a known "propaganda mercenary" for Microsoft...But did you know they're incredibly "efficient" in producing studies?
Linspire CEO Kevin Carmony, who introduced Freespire -- a no-cost version of Linspire's Linux distribution -- in his keynote address at last year's Summit, gave DesktopLinux.com the scoop on what's happening with this year's event.
Ubuntu installs alsa-base and alsa-utils by default (as part of ubuntu-minimal), and provided you didn’t rip them out when you built your minimal system, you still have a nifty ncurses application for modifying sound settings: alsamixer.
Here is my run-down of Linux distros that I have tried to run on my PIII 600mhz/128mb laptop.
First try - Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy)
There`s not much to say about this choice.
I recently installed Ubuntu 6.10 on a new PC at work. In this post I will document all the steps I had to perform to get it ready for everyday use. Each step is assigned a level of difficulty, which I define below:
Webmin is a modular web-based administration tool that works on a wide variety of Linux versions and other Unix and Unix-like operating systems. It enables you to log in via a web page and perform administration tasks. Webmin then “does the right thing” and makes the necessary appropriate changes to configuration files.
Major corporate houses choose open source partly due to the economic gains and mainly due to the control the open source system gives to their hands.
If you’ve ever had to modify files on your Linux system and simply change a word or two, there’s a fast and simple way to do this using sed.
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we meet a developer who has unfinished business with midges, someone who prefers bullets to stars -- tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Daniel Molkentin.

As some of you know, I own and operate mypclinuxos.com, which is a community projects website for PCLinuxOS. What some of you may not know is that PCLinuxOS held an official contest earlier last summer to select a new logo.
Sun's Project Looking Glass is a 3-D desktop environment for Linux, Windows, and Solaris. If you are interested in seeing what it offers but are not ready to install the packages directly on your system, you can still get a feel for the avant-garde interface with the just-released LG3D-LiveCD 3.0.
As Opera users we owe a lot of credit to Firefox for successfully bringing more awareness to alternative browsers. We benefited a great deal from it by having less compatibility issues with broken webpages. Hopefully this interview will show the best of what our communities have to offer. I’d like to personally ask to keep the trolling away – let’s set an example here.
