2008 to be year of non-desktop Linux

Filed under

451 CAOS Theory: I wanted to be among the first to post about how 2008 looks to be the year of desktop Linux (half jokingly, of course). Then I thought about how far the Linux OS has to go before it is approaching even Apple’s slice of the market (which by the way is getting bigger).

Get productive with GNOME Do

tectonic: We’re all swamped with information: emails, documents, pictures and the hundreds of websites we visit every week. There are two ways to deal with the data overload: Get organised or you can use GNOME Do.

Ubuntu I recently uninstalled Windows from all my machines and installed Ubuntu on them. There are two reasons for this:

Firefox - no longer the safer alternative to IE?

OSS I just opened the polls for the 2007 Members Choice Awards. There are 27 polls this year, more than even before. The polls close on February 21st. This is your chance to help quality Open Source projects get the attention they deserve.

Linux vs Windows: operating system security

Filed under

paulsdigitalworld.blogspot: The problem of security should be considered at two levels, user level and system level. An operating system can be at most as secure as its user. An uninformed user has every possibility to put an operating system under risk.

5 tips every new Linux user should know

Filed under
Linux We're taking a departure from the norm this week and not discussing a specific piece of software. Instead, we've been thinking about what we most wished we'd been told on our first foray into Linux-land. These tips run the gamut from installation planning to how to best ask for help.

Apple is Killing Linux on the Desktop 2008 is upon us and we’re greeted with the news, from NetApplications, that Apple Macs running OS X account for 7.3% of computers used to access the web.

The tricky task of supporting Photo CDs on Linux In the photography world, a prominent proprietary file format is Kodak's Photo CD (.PCD). Once the premiere format for film scanning, it is now a difficult-to-work-around relic. Recently I set out to resurrect some old PCD images on a Linux system -- a challenge that serves as an object lesson in the importance of open standards in any kind of digital archive.

2008: Not the year of the Linux desktop

Filed under

iTWire: The new year is less than a week old but the talk has already begun. Yes, we are hearing that hackneyed old saw again - this will be the year of the Linux desktop. Some so-called pundits say it directly, some in an indirect manner but they aren't holding back.

Review: Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 1 Web browser

Filed under
Moz/FF The first beta release of the much-anticipated Firefox 3 Web browser offers some nice enhancements over the previous version, such as additional security and new tools for storing and accessing bookmarks and browsing history, but it doesn't differ much from Firefox 2 in looks or functionality.

Distro hopping all the way back to Windows XP

Filed under
Linux This past week I have evaluated five Linux distributions to see if any of them would make suitable replacements for Windows XP so that I could avoid Vista. Sadly, Linux proved to be far more finicky and troublesome than I expected.

PCLinuxOS Day 2 - Bringing the System Up-to-Date

Filed under
PCLOS Any linux distribution is part of a continuous proces of development, updates and upgrades. When you install a freshly downloaded distribution you can expect at least a few updates waiting for you.

  • Data Center Networking Performance: New Apps Bring New Requirements
    Large cloud services providers such as Amazon, Google, Baidu, and Tencent have reinvented the way in which IT services can be delivered, with capabilities that go beyond scale in terms of sheer size to also include scale as it pertains to speed and agility. That’s put traditional carriers on notice: John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president at AT&T technology and operations, for instance, said last year that AT&T wants to be the “most aggressive IT company in the world.” He noted that in a world where over-the-top (OTT) offerings have become commonplace, application and services development can no longer be defined by legacy processes.

Perhaps most importantly, for those working in machine learning at least, the new processor not only executes at blistering speed, it can also be trained incredibly efficiently. Called the Cloud Tensor Processing Unit, the chip is named after Google’s open-source TensorFlow machine-learning framework.
