At first sight (and practice will confirm it), you can choose either of the books without being wrong. They're both targeted to the beginner to intermediate user who wants no know more about Fedora, RHEL or CentOS, in an accessible language, a practical presentation -- and having a book is rather handy at times, as you don't need an Internet connection to read anything.
Many KDE users tend to take the Konqueror Web browser for granted, but that's a mistake. Konqueror may not be able to replace Firefox as a Web browser for every site, but it does a lot more than just simple browsing.
If you look up in your taskbar, the one on the top of your monitor, you’ll see Applications, Places and System. We’re going to look at System today and see a few bits of what’s in there that can be useful to us.
Israeli open source software developer Alexander Maryanovsky has filed a lawsuit against international master chess player Alexander Rabinovich alleging that the chess player and his organization have violated the GPL.
In July, Canonical appointed Richard Weideman as its education programme manager. In short, he's the "first line contact on behalf of Canonical for all education issues", managing the company's growing list of education-related products and services as well as identifying new areas of growth.
In an open source world that's increasingly straying from idealistic roots in a bid to lure venture capital money, the Mozilla Corporation is something of a standout. Its mission: to make the Internet a better place.
Mark Shuttleworth is rich enough to cause some havoc in the feel-good Linux community. In January 2000, at the peak of the dot-com bubble, Shuttleworth sold his South African security software firm, Thawte, to VeriSign for $700 million in stock. Shuttleworth cashed out almost immediately, walking away with the entire purchase price, just as VeriSign's stock began its rapid descent. “Life has been kind to me,” he says.
LINUX OUTFIT Xandros has found itself a UK distributor and aims to hawk its products over the counters of major retailers.
With all of the redundancy in today's servers, its easy to think that you will never need serial port access to your shiny new server. But what do you do when you're at home and your server is at the data center, and your trusty friend SSH fails you? Go back to where remote access started -- a console server.
In July 2005 news first emerged of Sun Microsystems' first foray into open source identity management with the Open Web Single Sign-On (OpenSSO) project. Now, more than a year later, the project has been formally launched. My thoughts on this announcement are the same as those of a year ago and I have seen nothing on the project site which causes me to change that.
The Canadian federal government has embarked on an ambitious project that will use open source software to manage assets created for use in the public sector, including custom-developed applications.
ASUS has been known for their motherboards and graphics cards for some years now, but few have been exposed to their recent efforts to create viable wireless networking equipment. One of their most recent efforts is focused on the WL-500g Premium. With support for attaching external hard drives and cameras, as well as a unique download platform, ASUS has certainly placed itself in an interesting position. Did we mention that the router's firmware is also open-source and runs Linux?
To fan those flames, so to speak, I have some additional criticisms about Linux. Right off the bat, if Linux wants to be taken seriously by the business desktop market, it has to first take itself more seriously. What do I mean by that? Basically, kill the penguin and all of the marketing cuteness!
Pssst! Hey, you over there. The one running Linux. Maybe you can help me. I'm a freelance journalist by the name of Matt Carter. It's 1986, at the height of the Cold War, and right now I'm stuck inside the Kremlin with a Soviet secret agent by the name of Grushkov. If we don't escape, we'll be killed. At least that's the story as I got it from Mindware Studios and LGP.
The GNOME 2.16 release is almost upon us, and readers have asked for a prerelease preview. Although GNOME 2.16 is a minor update, it adds some highly desirable functionality and touts much-needed aesthetic improvements in addition to a veritable mountain of bug fixes.
The charting component is probably the least satisfactory part of OpenOffice.org. A few minutes with the issue tracker shows that, since OpenOffice.org 2.0 was released, 62 issues have been filed for charting. By contrast, the bibliography component and the formula editor, two other problematic subsystems that are comparable in size, have nine and 27 issues files against them respectively.
Perhaps due to the participation of Novell, SUSE Linux is one of the most popular and highly rated Linux distributions available today. Indeed, Novell claims over seven thousand installations a day, a breathtaking average of one every twelve seconds. With SUSE’s quick and easy installation, excellent hardware detection to get it all going, and first class implementations of both KDE and Gnome, it’s no wonder.
Is Michael Robertson afraid of anything? The entrepreneur has a made a career—and a fortune—playing rough with giants. Now, though, he’s turning up the volume: predicting an end to Apple’s hold on digital music, shaking up the Linux community by looking to marry open source smarts with proprietary know how, and talking trash about Microsoft’s new Zune.
Oxfordshire county council is installing a Linux system from Red Hat on IBM machines to deliver internet services across more than 280 local schools.
