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.
Mozilla has recently announced Release Candidate 3(RC3) of the next version of Firefox - Firefox 2.0. Those who can’t wait for the final version to be released before having a peek at the new features(not too many actually) that will be part of Firefox 2.0 can grab the RC3 version and install it on their systems.
Novell Inc. is three years into its transformation from a NetWare-centric software vendor to first and foremost a member in good standing of the Linux community. Along the way there has been great debate about the fate of the company's legacy products, including NetWare, and a complete overhaul of upper management.
The annual KDE World Summit, Akademy, has found a home for 2007 in the vibrant city of Glasgow. The week-long event for contributors to the leading Free Desktop project will be held from 30th June to 7th July 2007 in Scotland's largest city.
Choice: it's one of the key ideas at the heart of free software. The right to choose how to use your software, the right to choose who you share it with. Who could be against choice?
Gentoo installation supports 3 types of installation methods called stages. The method I personally used and was content with was the Networkless installation method. This means that the installer will install packages precompiled from the Live CD.
Opera widgets come in all shapes and sizes. Widgets are clocks, calculators, games, and some of the handiest tools you can imagine. If you have Opera, you can download them in seconds from the widgets.opera.com page. When the widget appears, try it, and then click to keep it or not.
I was lucky enough to interview Jon “Maddog” Hall, one of the speakers of the upcoming LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in London.
The KDE Project yesterday released KOffice version 1.6, the long awaited version of the open source office suite.
Egbert said she thinks Oracle could introduce a dedicated hardware appliance running Ubuntu and its own software. The relationship between Oracle and Ubuntu seems to have come together rather quickly, and is perhaps the fallout from an attempt by Red Hat and Oracle to work more closely together.
Novell today officially rolled out its Novell Access Manager 3 solution claiming that it is the first such solution to integrate all aspects of access Management.
Yet it isn't a full NAC (network access control) solution yet, or is it?
Linux developer Terra Soft Solutions will today announce the launch of its Yellow Dog Linux operating system for the PlayStation 3 games console.
THE MOZZARELLA Foundation has released what will be the last release candidate of its latest version of Firefox 2 browser.
The process of producing the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) may not be doomed, but, as Linus Torvalds and other kernel developers heat up the rhetoric, it does seem stalled. If the process continues in the way that it has been going, a large number of current users of the GPL may not switch to the new license. Unless the free and open source software (FOSS) communities are willing to risk the possible consequences of that result, it's time for a change of tactics.
Two new items arrived this week. They haven't been on hand long enough for a full review, but here are some first impressions. Ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com) carries a subtitle, "Linux for human beings." That's a refreshing concept.
As the battle between Microsoft and software vendors continues to rage on in the foreground, it seems like a lot of people have completely forgotten about the common user and their experience with the OS.
Chapter 20 from Marcel Gagné's new book Moving to Ubuntu Linux: Showing you how to work with KDE is beyond the scope of this book, so I won't spend a great deal of time on it, but I will show you how to convert your Ubuntu system to a Kubuntu system.
Hats off to Kevin Poulsen for one of the best articles in tech journalism you will read this year. The one-time hacker extraordinaire, and now senior editor at Wired, combined investigative reporting and code-writing skills to collar a predatory pedophile reaching out to teenage boys through MySpace.
The latest release candidate for the new Mozilla Firefox Web browser should be posted for free download early this week, as the project's developers finish last-minute code checks and tie up loose ends.
I'm sitting in a conference room here at CNET Networks' headquarters, playing a baseball game on a Nintendo Wii in which the players look like little more than rudimentary Lego people. Still, I'm having a good time.
