Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on an Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop to read from and write to Windows NTFS drives and partitions. It covers the usage of internal NTFS partitions (e.g. in a dual-boot environment) and of external USB NTFS drives.
Some people who advocate against free software claim that it's bad for the economy and not sustainable in the long term, because the lack of direct revenue on developing free software makes it harder to make money out of developing such software. Is that really true? Let's find out.
The Month of Apple Bugs has turned up another cross-platform issue - this time one that affects Windows, Linux and potentially other operating systems in addition to Mac OS X.

Once upon a time there was a small, lightweight distribution based on Slackware. It wasn’t all that different from any of a number of small, lightweight distros designed to work on older hardware though it seemed to be well thought out. That was Vector Linux 1.8 six years ago. Since then VL has grown into a full featured distribution available in several different configurations.
Well surprise surprise, it looks like Nokia is taking a bit different branding tact with its 770 successor, adding it to the N series and giving it a fancy new N800 moniker. Oh, and did we mention it's been unboxed?
Propelled by the release of its Version 2.0 in October, the free Firefox Web browser saw almost a 50% increase in use during 2006, according to one Web measurement firm.
Until today (where I stumbled over an article describing the problem) I was never aware of the fact that we almost lost support for Ogg Vorbis on all MP3 players. And that would have been a pity, because quite a lot of my music is stored as Ogg Vorbis - and yes, my portable player, the IAudio U2 plays Ogg Vorbis!
Vector Linux has been an interesting beast in my past reviews. For some reason I had less trouble with the "Standard" edition (which is free) than I did with the $30 "Deluxe" edition. If that holds true again, I don't expect to have any major hiccups with this release. We shall see.
A while back I asked a question here about software to manage logins and passwords. I appreciate all the answers and pretty much tried everything that was offered. Well, I now have a very different solution than I expected. Mainly, it taught me to better define the problem before looking for the solution.
All things considered, Sabayon 3.25 really is a mammoth distribution. The developers have obviously spent a lot of time and effort improving not only the look and feel, but also the functionality of their offering. And it was worth it. Sabayon really looks finished now, and works out-of-the-box – the user doesn’t have to know how to configure anything anymore.
With KDE 4.0 being released later this year a lot of Linux users have started speculating on what we can expect from this big KDE version release. The consensus is that the features in KDE 4.0 are going to be prettier, More “user friendly” and more intuitive than KDE 3.5.
FOSDEM is yet another one of those catchy acronyms that stands for nothing less than "Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting". KDE will again be hosting a room dedicated to talks and chat about the free desktop.
The Andhra Pradesh government is forging ties with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). MIT will provide funding and technological assistance for developing and promoting different software components including an open source platform.
In December I posted a poll asking visitors to vote based on their desktop environment and graphical toolkit preferences. While there were many votes in each category, the most noteworthy is that nearly 60% of respondents care if either Gtk or Qt is being used. The data is interesting because it highlights some of the progress that still needs to be made so all Linux software can work equally well no matter what desktop environment is being used.
Mandriva has recently released the latest version of its next-generation firewall, NuFW 2.1.1. NuFW starts, like most Linux firewall software does, on the foundation of the Linux kernel's Netfilter. Where NuFW steers away from commonplace firewalls is by bringing the notion of user identity to the firewall's security rules.
A new patch for OpenOffice helps fix a critical bug that could allows hackers to take control of individual PCs -- but simply locating it could prove a challenge for many users.
Two little words, one very big difference. Open source database vendor MySQL AB recently altered some of the wording of its license in order to let users know that it won't automatically be licensed under the next version of the General Public License, or GPL (define) version 3, when that draft is finalized.
