Oxfordshire county council is installing a Linux system from Red Hat on IBM machines to deliver internet services across more than 280 local schools.
Open-source true believers have been saying forever that open source is the way to develop software. It turns out they've convinced most programmers that they're right. According to a newly released IDC study, open source isn't just hype; it's now the way most developers make software.
Looks like kat, an attempt to create a native desktop search engine for KDE, has now vanished from the web surface. The old homepages, kat.sourceforge.net and kat.mandriva.com, just show a short note before it links directly to the main page of the former kat sponsor - Mandriva.
Opera Software has updated its brower for Linux-based set-top boxes, portable media players, game consoles, and other devices. Opera 9 for Devices mainly adds support for "Widgets" -- small applications based on web standards, and rendered in standalone browser windows without toolbars or other chrome.
There are so many variants of Linux to discover and each has its own particular emphasis and individual strengths. One of the more unusual ones I’ve seen is the “Christian” edition of Ubuntu, the latest version of which was released on September 4. This is yet another development which indicates the flexibility of Linux.
Plenty of Linux distributions are out there to play with, and sometimes one of the good ones slips by. I haven't paid too much attention to PCLinuxOS in the past, and it turns out I was quite remiss in not doing so.
Alien Arena 2007 has been released for Windows and Linux on September 2, 2006, nearly one year after the 2006 version. My how much can change in one year!
The last year has seen the first appearance of online word processing applications such as ajaxWrite, ThinkFree Online, Writely, and Zoho Writer. Online office applications are an unproven product in a new market. To see how worthwhile they were, I compared their interfaces, basic and advanced features, and their document export and administration capabilities.
Under the KDE umbrella, the KOffice project took part in the 2006 Summer of Code with four participants. The summer is over, the season of mists and long hacking nights has arrived and the question that's obviously in everyones mind is, have these five delivered -- and, more importantly, will Gabor, Alfredo, Emanuele, Thomas and Fredrik continue hacking on KOffice?
Open source software is part of the IT furniture these days, but it is only 15 years since Linus Torvalds put out the first Linux release. Is the inventor of Linux one of your IT greats?
Let’s face it, not everyone is a tech junkie at this stage in their life (I know that I am not) but the further one gets in their college career, the closer we get to the corporate realm, and it is important to note one of the most interesting tech issue revolutionizing our world, open source programming.
If you’re planning to deploy Linux, the Suse Linux Enterprise 10 is a hard act to beat, especially if migrating from or integrating with Windows.
So most of us have read review after review on just how fantastic Ubuntu is. And you know something, they're right - this really is a fantastic Linux distribution for the newer Linux enthusiast. But there often times appear to be some confusion as to accomplishing tasks they once would do in Windows pretty easily. On the whole, the confusion stems from hardware compatibly issues and today we are going to look into resolving those issues with ease.
Last month the Free Software Foundation (FSF) held its Fourth International Conference on GPLv3 at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore. Around 150 participants from all over India and abroad, including Japan, France, and Germany, attended. Since this was the first conference after the second draft of GPLv3, which saw several extensive revisions, both Richard Stallman and Eben Moglen painstakingly explained the new draft, and took many questions from attendees.
PC-BSD is one of the newest additions to the BSD family. The focus for this project is to create a user-friendly desktop experience based on FreeBSD and it has quickly garnered attention from media and the community. Kris Moore founder and lead developer of PC-BSD took some time off to answer a few questions about the past and current state of the project in general and its relation to KDE in particular.
If you woke up this morning, and felt like dropping half a bill to get Savage:TBfN from Tuxgames. Well DON'T! As of September 1st, 2006, s2games released their gem, Savage: The Battle for Newerth, as freeware for Linux, Windows and Mac users.
