Penguins helping items fly off shelves

Penguins must be flying high. People are flocking to see them on the big screen, they star in ads all over the little screen and they're splashed across advertising circulars and packaging for a scad of products.

Redmond vs. Red Hat: Divide and conquer

God's Laundry Day

Filed under

The discussion that broke out on the Linux kernel mailing list this week was just like a squall: a quiet technical discussion that suddenly grew into a deep conversation about the nature of the Linux kernel itself. Would the finest example of GPL software continue to allow proprietary software to be encoded within? The initial answer seemed to be yes.

And the battle rages on

Filed under

I just finished reading Chris Dawson's article. His statement goes to the core of the problem with this debate — and the misunderstanding that surrounds the debate. Linux was invented to offer an alternative to UNIX — not Windows.

Pre-build MythTV Linux PVR eats Windows MCE for breakfast

Filed under

With its little side-flaps extended I can’t help but see this pre-built MythTV PVR as some sort of Transformer, but sadly though its capabilities are broad I don’t think they extend to being a robot in disguise. Still, you could have some pretty good times.

RPM to be revitalized - courtesy of Fedora Project

The hot news right out of the oven is that RPM - the famous package manager that is the base of all Red Hat based Linux distribution packages is going to get a shot in the arm.

openSUSE 10.2 Changelog & Version Highlights

Filed under

There are many informative and complete reviews of openSUSE 10.2 already published, some with nice screenshots, so I don't see the point in writing yet another.

Ulteo: Latin for 'Yet another Ubuntu based distro'

Filed under

Yogi Berra once said, it's like "deja vu all over again". And that's the feeling I got using the new Linux distribution Ulteo. As I mentioned, Ulteo is a distribution based on the Ubuntu code base. What makes its name stand out a bit more (as opposed to say, Linux Mint) is that it was started by Gael Duval.
