Blog of Gentoo: In my few previous posts I've stated that I'd like to help people to spice their system and move from Windows to Linux. But we all know that it cannot be done in an instant. I started to explain the process in last posts. This time I will explain the 4th step: Spicing up Windows!
linux insider: Training teachers and students to use a piece of software makes that software more valuable. Vendors know this. Business sense, not altruism, is what drives deep discounts on software for education. I once spoke to a vendor of an online grade book who, upon learning that I train teachers, was very interested in my using it in my classes.
Manuel Klimek: A month ago I bought a TREKSTOR NDAS device. This devices promises on it's package to be linux compatible. So after I unpacked the hardware and everything was running in Windows I tried to install it in linux. Unfortunately the stock feisty debian package I found didn't work with my WLAN configuration.
Released on April 19 through the world, Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn has arguably become the best version of the world’s most exciting distro yet. This Ubuntu release has introduced major changes which was unanimously felt needed by users all throughout the world.
The other day I stumbled upon this neat tool that helps cleanup your GConf registry, called GConf Cleaner. While GNOME registry size isn't nowhere near the size of Windows registry, and thus shouldn't slow your computer too much, it's still nice to have a tool that cleans unused and obsolete entries.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Fedora 7 desktop. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
Typos: Been a few days since I started ‘messing’ with Fedora 7 (Moonshine). Fedora now has spins! What this means to you and me is that it now offers variations of Fedora with different set of software packages for Desktop Users and Servers as well as Fedora Live CDs like the Ubuntu guys do.
DPotD: Do you have lots of sticky notes lying around with various useful information jotted down? Or many lists of books, movies, website logins, personal contacts, or things to do? Can you find them when you need them? TreeLine is a possible anwser to all those questions.
shift+backspace: Fedora 7 was released on May 31, 2007 by Red Hat and the Fedora community. This review will focus on my opinion of Fedora 7 straight “out-of-the-box” and what it can do with minimal intervention.
about.com: This game offers fun and entertainment at various levels. In its simplest form you shoot artillery from your tank at your enemies, trying to blow up as many as you can.
Phoronix: The third test release of Parsix GNU/Linux 0.90 is now available. New in this LiveCD is GNOME 2.18.2, Sun Java replaced by GCJ, added the Parsix Book to the LiveCD, several bug fixes, glibc 2.5, and many other improvements.
FOSSwire: Sometimes, if you’re following a tutorial on doing something on your Linux box and you’re trying to fix something, you’ll be asked to go to a terminal and type in some commands. Often, these commands need to be run as root, the administrator.
We're all familiar with the "big two" desktops for Linux -- KDE and GNOME. Of course, there are many more to choose from. If you asked a group of Linux users, "Which one is best?", the ensuing debate would likely take on religious overtones. Some would even argue that a desktop like KDE is too hard for newbies to use. Still, it's a safe bet that most Linux users don't stray too far away from those "big two," KDE and GNOME. So it's especially interesting to look at some innovative alternatives.
ComputerWorld: New provisions in the latest GPLv3 draft deal more specifically with patents, and how companies distributing software under the proposed GPLv3 can interact with other companies who distribute patented software protected by copyright law. They aim to stop future software patent deals like the one recently made by Microsoft and Novell.
AP via Forbes: Software developer Novell Inc. said Friday it is in compliance with Nasdaq Stock Market rules after filing several delayed financial reports.
NY Times: WHAT a difference 16 years makes. Last month, the technology world was abuzz over an interview in Fortune magazine in which Bradford Smith, Microsoft’s general counsel, accused users and developers of various free software products of patent infringement and demanded royalties. Microsoft sang a very different tune in 1991.
arsgeek: Lots of people have a love/hate relationship with their touch pad on their laptops. It’s great for speeding around your screen and doing lots of cool things with nary a mouse in site. It’s horrible when you accidentaly double-click that Quake 3 icon while your boss is strolling into the room.
effiejayx’s blog: Well most kids would just do anything to sit in front of the TV on a Saturday morning with their cereal in dripping from the bowl. (I know I did back in my time ), well Not my daughter... she just loves sitting and playing with TUXPAINT.
thesourceshow.org: We finally got around to releasing another episode. This time we talk to Bassam Kurdali of the blender project and we have the much anticipated Cinelerra tutorial #3 in which we discuss how to do video effects.
linux insider: Free software gives everyone the freedom to run, study, change and redistribute software. It is these freedoms, not the price, that is important about free software. Free software advocates make the distinction between free, as in speech, as opposed to free, as in beer. Though many people would gladly accept a free beer, it is not one of the fundamental principles of democracy.
