Jeremy Allison is a hero in the open source community these days. After spending two years at Novell, he decided to leave the Waltham, Mass.-based software company for reasons of principle right after the Linux-vendor signed a deal with Microsoft. Before he starts a new job at search engine Google Tuesday, Mr. Allison answered some questions from Red Herring.
Kubuntu is a distribution which takes Ubuntu's base packages and adds to it the KDE desktop and a set of KDE applications. Although the two distributions are similar in many ways, their desktop and default set of applications are extremely different.
Distributing software packages to all of our servers is a tedious task. Currently, a release manager makes a connection to each server and transfers files using ftp. This involves entering passwords multiple times, waiting for transfers to complete, changing directories, and keeping files organized. We developed a shell script that makes the job easier.
Given the jaw-dropping occurrences in the open source world last year (Red Hat’s acquisition of JBoss, Oracle’s announcement of “Unbreakable Linux,” and Novell’s patent pact with Microsoft, to name a few), InfoWorld’s Neil McAllister says balancing open and proprietary, commercial and free, will be the critical task for enterprise IT managers this year and for a time to follow.
Open source software is typically available for free and is set up so that programmers around the world can tinker with the code and make improvements. Now, the University of Regina has joined the fray, launching its first senior-level course in open source software development.
Since KDE 4 development is in full swing with plans for a KDE 4.0 release sometime later this year, I thought I'd put together a weekly piece entitled The Road to KDE 4. The idea is to have a short overview of one or two of the features that show progress in KDE 4. For my first issue, the goal is to show off some of the great SVG work that has taken place so far.
Linux isn't the only open source operating system vying for the desktop; BSD in the form of the PC-BSD effort is too. The new PC-BSD also sports a new look and a new base system using the KDE 3.5.5 desktop.
For several years, German automobile manufacturer Audi AG, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, has been steadily migrating its engineering systems over to Linux. The company hopes to finish the job in 2007 and have the bulk of its servers and workstations running 64-bit Linux by the end of the year.
For people migrating from Windows to Linux, the Apache Web server is entirely different world from Microsoft Internet Information Server. Apache can be alienating to IIS / Windows administrators, because migrating to Apache is more than just copying files.

Installing a new application on Linux can be challenging, even for experts. Now, the LSB (Linux Standard Base) project and its parent organization, the FSG (Free Standards Group), have a plan for how to make it easier for both users and developers.
The 5th Issue of PCLinuxOS Magazine is online and ready to consume. This month's topics include: Creating an Update CD or DVD, Linux Users Owe Microsoft, Guide to Installing Diablo II LOD, Desktop Changes, and Partition Tables Explained.
OpenOffice.org expert Solveig Haugland has published a massive new manual called the OpenOffice.org 2 Guide. This 520-page tome will be useful both for OOo newbies and power users who are interested in learning arcane features of the office suite.
It has been one year to the day since XGI Technology had last released a Volari Linux display driver and about 14 months since we had first delivered word of XGI considering open-source 3D display drivers. Where do things now stand for XGI Technology? We will tell you all of the details today where things are for this Taiwan graphics company.
An open source wireless tracking system for following people around buildings got its first public use last week at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin.
Shares in Red Hat rose by 25 per cent after the company released details of its third-quarter results.
This is a description of how to set up a secure tunnel between your MySQL Server and a locally running MySQL Administrator using Putty. By creating a secure tunnel to your MySQL server using Putty, you can grant localhost access to powerful applications like MySQL Administrator while at the same time, make your server appear as if it is not even there. In effect, make your MySQL server disappear from the outside world.
With so many RSS aggregators to choose from, you can pick the one that fits your specific needs. If you don't want to install anything on your machine and you need to be able to access your news feeds from anywhere, you can opt for a Web-based solution like Netvibes. If you prefer a dedicated desktop RSS reader chock-full of features, then something like RSSOwl or BlogBridge is the way to go. But if you don't want to get used to a whole new application, you might want to give infoRSS a try. Unlike other RSS aggregators, infoRSS is a Thunderbird/Firefox extension that runs inside your email client or browser.

I HAVE REALISED that I can not move to Vista, ever, Microsoft is forcing me to Linux. I can't legitimately use its software without becoming a criminal or spending tens of thousands of dollars. It simply is not worth it.
With all the sophisticated open source software out there, it's been easy to cut my ties to the world of paid software. I'm not quite a fully developed open source junkie though. Yet.
