There are a lot of things that Linux users and developers say are good about Linux. But at least one notable Linux kernel developer sees plenty not to love.
While at LinuxWorld, I was contemplating how IBM's multi-billion dollar investment in free software has born fruit in the form of their hard sought after two inch rubber tux, when I met up with Robin Miller who interviewed me on the quality of this year's swag.
The Proliferation Committee of the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has published the first draft of a report that seeks to curb the proliferation of open source licences.
Grapple, developed by LGP, is designed to be a simple network layer, allowing the addition of multiplayer features to a game for as little as a dozen lines of code. However it is also fully featured, so if you want more from your networking, you can have it.
You've built a linux desktop. You've mounted the learning curve to configure the hardware (or paid someone else to do so) and you are able to do your own work on the machine. You've discovered that if you can point and click you can run a modern linux OS on your desktop. But how is it you will ever relate to the rest of the world?
Your computer running Linux somehow ran into a hardware glitch and had to be hauled to the neighborhood Computer service center. And you are asked to leave the machine at the service center and come back after a couple of days so that the technician can have a good look at it. But you are a bit worried because the harddisk contains the blue prints of the most secret project you are currently working on.
The very first part of troubleshooting is identifying the problem. That's not always easy even for skilled professionals. It's definitely not easy for the typical computer user, so when you get the call, what you are told may not match reality.

With a donation of a new Poweredge server from Dell Inc., and a successful hardware fundraiser for disks last month, the long-suffering ktown.kde.org site gets a welcome upgrade, and a new hosting package from the Leibniz-Rechenzentrum. Read on for the details on the new server, Immanuel.
The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo kicked off last week with a keynote address by Stanford Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig, who told a packed audience the open source community's work doesn't end with an operating system and applications. The battle now is in creating a free culture in which the creation and consumption of content are not hindered by stringent copyright laws.
Puppy Linux is a small Linux live CD distribution that can boot from a CD, DVD, or USB drive; a hard disk is optional. According to the Puppy Linux Web site, Puppy's goals include being Linux newbie-friendly, booting and running quickly, and including all the applications typical users need. The newest version is its most usable yet.
Network-centric services are connecting users to some truly valuable data. For the price of a computer, a network connection, and a browser, you can find information on just about anything. Punch a few keywords into a search engine and out spits a wealth of valuable content about Linux, some obscure song, or even current tractor pulling technology.
I reviewed the free Ark Linux distro back in 2004 and found it offered a pretty good experience for an alpha Linux release. Ark Linux is a KDE-based distribution geared towards desktop users. New in this release of Ark Linux is KDE 3.5.4, the current version of X.Org, the Amarok 1.41 media playback tool, as well as bug fixes and other updates.
The Open Source Initiative's license proliferation committee has discovered that it might be more difficult than it first thought to reduce the number of open source licenses in common usage.
I like my machine to boot with grub (given that I dual boot) and I like to have a nice image when I’m taking my 15 seconds to decide which OS I want to boot into. Or in case a supermodel just happens to be looking over my shoulder while I’m starting my laptop up.
Red Hat chief technology Officer Brian Stevens escalated the debate over whether the open-source Xen virtualization technology is ready for prime time Aug. 16, saying Novell was being irresponsible and potentially damaging enterprises' first experiences with Xen.
The head of Microsoft's open source software lab has extended a helping hand to Mozilla Corp. if it's interested in making sure the Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client run under Windows Vista.
Mandriva 2007 will have support for 3D desktops effects through XGL/AIGLX. The choice will be made automatically according to your graphical card driver possibilities.
Novell announced that a home furnishings retailer in the United States is installing SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 from Novell on all of its in-store sales terminals across more than 320 stores as well as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 to run its extensive point-of-sale store management system.
A group of visually impaired campaigners have brought a temporary halt to plans by the US state of Massachusetts to move to open source document format (ODF), because the software to read them does not work with screen magnifiers.
