How many of us regularly use certain types of files or documents during our day-to-day work? I know I am always in & out of documents and editing or creating .html files. Well, this tuturial will shave off precious seconds as you scramble for world domination.
This chapter from The Official Ubuntu Book discusses some of the most common problems faced by users, presented in a cookbook format, followed by a concise solution.
I recently got Feisty Fawn Herd 1 (the first testing release) up and running in a Virtual Machine to take a look. While this is a testing distro does contain bugs, it’s interesting to look at what’s coming down the line for April of ‘07.
If you've been thinking of dipping your toes in the Linux pool, you might find a lot of the sound and fury surrounding licenses, technologies and strange dealings with Microsoft more than you bargained for when you signed up for a low-cost and powerful file server. Come on in ... the water's fine.
This list of interesting Linux uses is by no means exhaustive. I just picked linux uses that interested me and I hope you will find it interesting too. Most of the picks came from Linuxdevices.com. You can check it out and see their cool stuff.
Mozilla has released Mozilla Firefox Gran Paradiso Alpha 1, which is an early developer milestone for the next major version of Firefox that is being built on top of the next generation of Mozilla’s layout engine, Gecko 1.9.
While Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has garnered a tremendous amount of support worldwide, it has also become a lightning rod for critics who have questioned the viability of its long-term success and impact. As the OLPC receives its first shipment of laptops and continues to formalize agreements with developing countries, the cost of individual laptops hover at about $130. Critics, however, suggest that the "true cost" may be several times that amount.
Nowadays P2P like bittorrent are so popular, until others need to add a new harddisk to download all the stuff. A new harddisk is need to repartition before you can use it. To partitioning the new harddisk, you can use this:
Since this is on the internet and the objective of this article is to let you - the users of the internet - know and hopefully have a better idea about freedom on the internet, in computers and on media, we would like to explain some of the ideas that have the principle of freedom at its core which are important for these fields.
What do you do when you have a feature in your Web application that takes longer than a second or two to finish? You need some type of offline processing solution. Check out several methods for offline servicing of long-running jobs in your PHP application.
I do not like Slackware. Let me get that out right now. This should be obvious to anyone who's read my rants or had the misfortune to mistake my Slackware 11 rant for a real review and decided to subsequently question my IQ and parentage on the comments section of OSNews. Zenwalk is a derivative of Slackware, so it's starting out the game with two strikes against it. However it has been several versions since I last looked at this distro (2.4). Let's see if it can make up for its parent.
Open source code is now used by over 70 per cent of software developers in Asia, according to a new report. The number of developers using open source in the region has surged more than 40 per cent in just three years.
Open source seems to be the buzzword that is set to pervade enterprises over the next few years. According to industry sources, enterprise open source buyers will turn into systems integrators, as the architectural approaches to open source will be predominant.
Inspired by Linux, the OScar project aims to build a car by tapping the knowledge of a volunteer team. It won’t be an easy ride, but their journey is important
Over the years, I have accumulated a couple of hard disks which I salvaged from my old computers. I have a Seagate 12 GB hard disk, a Samsung 2.1 GB hard disk apart from another Seagate 20 GB hard disk. In fact, these were just lying around with out being put to any use and recently I decided to add one of them to my present computer.
Recently Medsphere, supposedly an “Open Source” Medical Software Company, has sued its founders Scott and Steve Shreeve. Why? Medsphere claims that the Shreeves illegally released Medsphere software to Sourceforge. An “Open Source” Software company is suing its founders for releasing code under a free license... that’s a bit like Ford suing its employees for making cars.
OS X is more appealing to enterprises as a desktop operating system than ever before and although it is unlikely to take market share away from Windows, the Mac could reduce the number of Linux-based desktops, according to research group Gartner.
After trying out openSUSE 10.2 last night @home on a separate partition and spending some time, around couple of hours, I decided to take a bold decision - to install it as my primary OS, replacing the good old SUSE 10.1.
There are many things about GNU/Linux which merit complaint. But it is extremely doubtful whether anyone can find anything to complain about with regards to the versatile nature of the operating system. Despite this flexibility, it's not often that one hears of the operating system being used in secure facilities by government organisations. Hence I was pleasantly surprised to hear that a locked-down version of the Knoppix distribution is being used at a remand centre close to Melbourne.
The greatest differentiator between OS vendors is no longer a question of features, function, performance, customer support, security, reliability or any feature of the product itself. The future of computing may depend on the lawyers.
