The Open Source Activist: Installing Dropteam isn’t as straightforward as one might expect. It required adding a lib file and making the ‘SpaceVikings executable’ executable. Luckily with help from the friendly Dropteam forums I was able to solve these problems with relative ease.
blogcritics.org: Every Friday, I present three or more browser-based games, all of which depend on the Adobe Flash Player and your web browser. All the games should work on Mac, Windows, Linux, and any other operating system that supports Flash. I'll tell you whether each game has music or sound, so you can adjust your speakers accordingly.
LinuxWorld 2007 is tipped to set the latest trends in Open Source and Linux technologies. The show, which is expected to attract IT decision makers, business professionals and Linux enthusiasts, will showcase the latest technology, debate the use of Open Source in the desktop environment, touch on the use of Linux in the datacentre and discuss the development of a common Linux-based platform for mobile phones.
linuxonthedesktop: Big News today and no it’s not the Apple iPhone. The next version of the GNU GPL, GPL 3, was released and over 5,500 software projects are already slated to adopt the GPL 3. Neo1973 a Linux-powered iPhone killer?
wired blogs: Greg Stein, engineering manager at Google and current chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, maintains that developers want more permissive licenses than the GPL -- a position he often speaks out in support of. "They don't want conditions imposed upon them," he told Wired News.
Red Hat Mag: Free as in, well, free. At least, that’s what the folks at Project Gutenberg believe. They work hard to make as many literary (in a very broad sense of the term) works as possible available in a variety of formats, languages, and media to as many people as possible.
mozillazine: Users of Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 have been offered a major update to Mozilla Firefox 22.214.171.124 via the automatic update notification. As reported earlier, Mozilla Firefox 126.96.36.199 is the last release from the Firefox 1.5 Branch.
Limulus: As was pointed out earlier here, PCLinuxOS has dramatically risen in the Distrowatch HPD stats, but in terms of OS share on distrowatch.com itself only has about a quarter of Ubuntu’s and what I wonder about is that if you look at the Google search volume:
the register: It's only a matter of time before Google unveils a full-fledged online operating system. This week, Microsoft's biggest rival rolled out a new version of Docs & Spreadsheets - its online answer to Word and Excel - adding Windows-like folders, an improved search engine, and an all-around prettier interface.
LinuxToday: The language is complex, which some are already complaining about. Novell seems to have "gotten off," which others will complain about. Still others are looking at this license and the pressure Microsoft is trying to put on the community with its patent protection racket and are predicting doom and gloom in the form of a civil war.
linux.com: Greg Kroah-Hartman kicked off the second day of the 9th annual Ottawa Linux Symposium with a talk entitled "Linux Kernel Development - How, What, How fast, and Who?" to a solidly packed main room with an audience of more than 400 people.
internetnews: Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client has made relatively small inroads in the market versus Microsoft's Outlook e-mail program. Lightning and Sunbird are part of the Mozilla Calendar effort.
InfoWorld: The Register reports that the Red Hat Exchange (RHX) "roars like a muted lamb". The Register's point is that RHX has met with a lukewarm reception to date. I wonder if The Register story is missing the point.
shift+backspace: The latest installment of Sidux, 2007-02 codenamed Tartaros, was released on May 28th of this year. Sidux is based on Debian, inparticularly Sid, which is the more modern, or development branch of Debian.
IndiaTimes.com: Powerful, easy to use, bug-free - and best of all - FREE! Linux is becoming the Operating System of choice for many internet aficionados.
linux-watch: I've been following the evolution of this latest version of the seminal open-source license since it was a twinkle in Richard M. Stallman's eye. I have no no doubt that a lot of hard work by some incredibly bright people has gone into making this the best possible software license.
LWN: Voting is open for the Fedora Board elections in which 3 of the 9 seats will be chosen. The candidates are Christopher Aillon, Dennis Gilmore, Bob Jensen, Brian Pepple, Jef Spaleta and Rahul Sundaram.
sheehantu: After reading Mohammad’s blog post about Google Desktop, I thought I’d take it for a spin since I’m a GDS fan when I’m on XP. Though I’ve only been using it for two days, I soon realized that I am going back to Tracker. Here’s why:
