I was in meetings and flights all day, but when I got off my last flight of the day, there were scads of emails waiting for me on my phone. I figured the Red Sea had parted to allow Ron Hovsepian and Steve Ballmer to pass, holding hands and singing kumbayah. Nope.
I was wondering last week why Novell had been so quiet regarding Oracle's sucker punch on Red Hat. Now we know, they were preparing a sucker punch of their own. How, in the name of common sense, does Novell expect to survive such a partnership with Microsoft?
This week in my random survey of activity on the mail-lists for Linux sound & music software I'll look at two very different software drum machines and a keystroke macro that enters LilyPond music notation into an Open Office text document. And if that isn't enough I've included four thrilling screenshots and links to three entertaining audio files to entice and maintain your interest.
Here’s a few quick ways to determine just what is chewing up all of your disk space.
On Tuesday, upwards of 100 IT managers and administrators attended Penton Media's TechX World conference in Dallas -- the third of four such one-day seminars this fall. Server room strategies were the main agenda, with particular emphasis placed on interoperability in a mixed Linux and Windows environment.
WE SPOKE to Novell European president Tom Francese in the wake of the Microsoft pact to get some reaction on the deal. 'This is pressure on Red Hat'
The typical UNIX administrator has a key range of utilities, tricks, and systems he or she uses regularly to aid in the process of administration. Configure your swap space (including adding space in an emergency) to get the most out of your system. In this article, you'll learn how to monitor your system to determine an effective swap space figure as well as examine methods for using swap space for more than just secondary random access memory (RAM).
Q: Did Red Hat consider a similar patent deal with Microsoft?
A: An innovation tax is unthinkable. Free and open source software provide the necessary environment for true innovation. Innovation without fear or threat. Activities that isolate communities or limit upstream adoption will inevitably stifle innovation.
The basic concepts and goals of SELinux are fairly simple. This sample chapter examines the security concepts of SELinux and the motivations behind them. It focuses on the primary access control feature of SELinux, type enforcement (TE), and also briefly discusses the optional multilevel security mechanism.
Linux has become a hot property for more and more solution providers fed up with poor, even nonexistent, margins in the overcrowded world of Microsoft-related reselling. The lure of higher profits and the benefits of dealing with an open-source platform make Linux attractive from a business and technology perspective.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said his company is open to talking to other Linux distributors about reaching mutual patent coverage deals similar to the agreement signed Nov. 2 with Novell. The distributors of other versions of Linux cannot assure their customers that Microsoft won't sue for patent infringement.
I've collected for you a representative sampling of reactions to the unfortunate Novell-MS alliance. It's Microsoft being Microsoft. It isn't waving any white flags.
Microsoft Corp.'s support agreement with Novell Inc. dominated the early session, with investors trying to sort out the winners and losers of the industry-shaking deal.
The popular free Linux computer operating system being co-opted by corporate technology titans was born of a Finnish university student and a group devoted to no-cost software.
Free software and DRM-free music met this week when the Amarok music player added a built-in "iTunes-like" music store in its latest release -- making it the first open source music application to include such a service.
Neverwinter Nights was one of the most popular games to be on the Mac platform. But unfortunately, the latest edition was built with proprietary standards (C# and DirectX) making it so that it only runs on Windows and not Linux or Mac. So a petition has started to get gamers to boycott the makers until they release the game for th platforms that made it great.
One of the biggest hurdles for the already popular distribution Ubuntu in gaining still more popularity all across the world, is the limited number of applications shipped as part of the distribution media. This works well only for those users who either don’t require anything more than the installed default applications or those who have a fast Internet connection.
Explore2fs is a GUI explorer tool for accessing ext2 and ext3 filesystems. It runs under all versions of Windows and can read almost any ext2 and ext3 filesystem.
Here in the UK, there is a saying that was a quote from Virgil that was often quoted in the original Latin, “Timeo Danaos et dona ferentis”, which is usually mistranslated into the phrase “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts”.
