The first version of Google's RSS reader, which debuted in October 2005, was so light on features that it was more of a curiosity than a serious application. Now the wizards in white coats at Google Labs have cooked up a new version. The almost completely reworked Google Reader includes a slew of new features and improvements that make the Web-based application a viable alternative to the existing desktop and online RSS readers.
Before he was arrested in connection with his wife's disappearance, Hans Reiser had gained a reputation as an innovative but controversial figure in the software development world.
The open-source movement, which has long made inroads into corporations via Linux and other enterprise-level software, now has a potentially bigger target in its cross hairs: the PBXs and network routers from companies such as Cisco Systems Inc. that form the basis of networking infrastructure.
Christopher Kenyon, Canonical's business development manager, offered another crumb in a recent interview, when he said Oracle makes sure its 10G Express version works on Ubuntu.
This article shows how to run a file-, print-, HTTP proxy- DHCP-, and time server for small and medium enterprises (SME) on one single Debian Sarge system. It is very easy to set up, and management is done with an easy-to-use web interface called eBox so once the system is set up, you can forget about the command line. eBox was developed to administrate advanced services for corporate networks, and it was created for Debian Sarge.
Sal Cangeloso’s writeup (three reasons to use GNOME) inspired me to talk about the flip side of the coin. Yes, I know it’s smug to pretend that there’s only KDE and GNOME; yet KDE is my desktop of choice, and here’s why. Of course, Sal’s right when he says lists are the effective way to convey information in writing, so I’ll take a page from his book and do so:
Ubuntu 6.10 is the current development version of the Ubuntu operating system. It is to be released in October 26th.The common name given to this release from the time of its early development was “Edgy Eft”.

The United States could be rife with Internet addicts as clinically ill as alcoholics, a study suggested. Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, California, said their telephone survey indicated more than one in eight US residents showed at least one sign of "problematic Internet use."
Recently KDE turned ten years old, a milestone by any measure. Over the past ten years this desktop environment has undergone tremendous improvements and introduced a number of advances into desktop Linux. KDE is popular, highly customizable, and, no matter what your tastes are, you will probably agree that it can look good. If all this was not enough, KDE has developed a celebrity status by appearing on a few popular television shows. Despite all this, GNOME is still the best desktop environment for Linux.
A firewall is a secure and trusted machine that sits between a private network and a public network (the term firewall comes from a device used to protect people from fire. The firewall is a shield of material esistant to fire that is placed between a potential fire and the people it is protecting).
Late last month, a research team led by University of Maastricht computer scientists and economists presented the results of what they had been working on for the past two years: a "Study on the Economic Impact of Open Source Software on Innovation and the Competitiveness of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Sectors in the EU."
Neither Mozilla Firefox nor Mozilla Thunderbird are likely to be in the next Debian GNU/Linux release. Ubuntu Linux users will also be affected by the move since Ubuntu is derived from Debian and uses Debian's Mozilla packages.
FSMLabs reports that its real-time Linux distribution was used by Blue Mountain Avionics to build an electronic flight information system (EFIS) or "glass cockpit" for experimental aircraft. The EFIS/One offers dozens of solid-state instruments, digital autopilot, an air data computer, and a built-in flight recorder.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T60p is the first ThinkPad to officially support GNU/Linux. Unfortunately that support is not quite as broad as some would like -- you're more or less forced to install and use SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED 10). The good news is, SLED 10 is a highly usable, stable, and configurable operating system.
The Free Standards Group (FSG) is scheduled to announce today its answer to the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) -- the Linux Standard Base (LSB) Developer Network. The LSB Developer Network (LDN) will combine community content with original content in one convenient location to provide developers with information on writing portable Linux applications.
Frugalware is an independent GNU/Linux distribution similar to Slackware, aiming at simplicity, speed and multimedia support. It features a wide software repository, managed by Pacman from Archlinux, which resolves dependencies and makes system updates easy.
Repeat after me: "There is no Oracle Linux." I don't care how many times you hear stock analysts say that Oracle is about to launch its own Linux. It's just not going to happen.
