An Open source entrepreneur has published a new 'Honest Public Licence' (HPL) that aims to close loopholes which let firms offering hosted applications escape key stipulations of the General Public License (GPL).
Tech news and discussions website, Neowin.net, has started developing it’s own distribution of Linux, titled Shift, which has just reached version 0.3.
For years, pundits have proclaimed that the Linux Desktop is coming, and yet it was still lacking in some of the critical collaboration apps that enterprises rely on. Some have argued that without key collaboration applications that can interface with Microsoft's Exchange, enterprises won't adopt Linux. That's going to change this year.
With Microsoft's Office suite now being targeted by hackers, researchers at the French Ministry of Defence say users of the OpenOffice.org software may be at even greater risk from computer viruses.
IBM is taking instant messaging to Linux—on both the desktop and server. The company will use the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo to announce that it will support Linux. Hewlett-Packard, of Palo Alto, Calif., will use LinuxWorld to announce global support for the Debian Linux distribution.
One of the greatest strengths of the Linux operating system is the power of the command line. Scott Granneman has compiled a collection of Linux commands that will allow you to do almost anything you need to do from a terminal.
The undergraduate students in the George Fox University management and business information systems program will be asked to solve an organization's information system problems. Students will rely on open-source software.
The computer lab we were using at Western Oregon University had Windows XP on all the machines. The first day of class, I used Win-XP for a few minutes--but I just couldn't stand it anymore . . . I whipped-out my PCLinuxOS CD I'd brought along with me, and proceeded to install Linux on the machine . . .
As announced on Distrowatch, "The new generation of Elive has started and the beta-3.1 for the future version 0.5 is officially released. Version 0.5 is based on Dsslive with kernel 2.6.15 and X.Org 7.0. Other new features include SATA support, better compatibility with amd64 processors, new drivers for wireless networking, and several improvements to the hard disk installer. Enlightenment 17 now comes with a beautiful Lucax theme, while Firefox also has an exciting, never-seen-before look." It was time for Tuxmachines to take another look.
The Abit KN9 Ultra is backed by the NVIDIA MCP55 Ultra and supports IEEE-1394a, Dual Gigabit LAN, and all of the other Abit extras we are delighted to see back. The KN9 Ultra certainly looks like it may stack up well on paper, but let's see if Abit has truly returned to their famed past set by such motherboards as the NF7-S and IC7-MAX3.
What is Aurox 12.0-RC1 DVD? First of all, it's a LiveDVD, and an installable one (à la MEPIS, Ubuntu 6.06, and so on). Based on kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5 (i686), its FC5 origin is pretty obvious, no matter the welcome page after the install will still mention FC3 and FC4. And what is that Aurora has and Fedora Core has not?

Many Windows administrators want to try out Linux without having to install an entirely new operating system alongside XP, or reformatting their hard disk. Now there's a way to get "instant Linux" – with the free software called Knoppix.
I built a LAMP (Linux, Apache, Perl/Python/PHP) sales portal that handled online ordering and a corporate Web site. It generated revenue from the outset. Then our parent company in Japan was flying in to help rescue our LAMP system. We didn't know it needed rescuing.
While software applications and the companies that develop them have become the main drivers in today’s information society, the CM1, more commonly known as the $100 laptop, could take over where the venerable 5150 left off - becoming one of the enduring pieces of techno hardware in the next 25 years.
I was sitting on an uncomfortably high plastic chair waiting... waiting... waiting... and that was just for the office suite to load on MS2000. One of my fellow post grad students was sitting at the terminal next to me. We had exchanged pleasantries and I knew he had an IT background, and the wait time was getting ridiculous, and so I said, as a way of passing the time, “I forgot how slow this whole windows business is”. He looked at me, in a puzzled, suspicious way. “Why?”, he enquired. “What do you use?” I replied “Ubuntu”, his eyebrows shot up and he looked at me like I had just grown a third head.
Recently, Texstar released a Junior version. Known as PCLINUXOS 0.93A JUNIOR, this version comes with a set of pre-selected programs for Web Browsing, E-mail, IM, Blogging, DVDS/CD burning and a whole lot more. It is a GREAT way for someone migrating from Windows to Linux to get started. While the single CD might seem somewhat minimalistic, once installed some 5,000 programs await the user from the Synaptic repositories.
In 2003, a new distribution forked from Mandrake Linux 9.2. Its creator was a packager called Texstar who was also maintaining a website called "PCLinuxOnline". He named his distribution "PCLinuxOS" and worked closely with "The Live CD Project" to make a Live CD distribution based on Mandrake but which would use its own packages and the APT package manager.
