In the other, we have Red Hat: almost synonymous with Linux, especially in the business world, and long a pillar of the free/open source community.
If you publish content on the web you need to create thumbnails of published images every now and then. GIMP is useful for that, but why use such a heavy tool for such a simple task? It always took me about a minute to actually launch GIMP, do all the clicking to get a small version of the image and save it to another file. I have been doing it this way for ages, until I have heard of ImageMagick for the first time.

Canonical Ltd. CEO Mark Shuttleworth said a partnership with Oracle is no longer a matter of if, but when. Speaking to an analyst at Oracle OpenWorld this week, Shuttleworth said his company is open to a partnership with Oracle.
Analysts are also looking forward to the new release of Microsoft Office, which has only been in development about 2 or 3 years. Ironically though, today is also the day that Mark Shuttleworth's Canonical company released its latest version of its Ubuntu operating system. Unlike Microsoft, Canonical releases new versions every six months.
The Ubuntu team is scheduled to release Ubuntu 6.10, codenamed Edgy Eft, today. After working with beta and release candidates over the last few weeks, I've found it to be a solid and usable upgrade for Dapper -- but not a particularly cutting-edge release.
Shares in Red Hat plunged 30 percent to a new 52-week low of $13.70 on Thursday morning following software giant Oracle’s announcement on Wednesday that it would move into the Linux software space. By 11:30 a.m., more than 58 million shares had traded hands – nine times the daily average.

Managing your address book and appending new addresses can get tiresome. If your email client is KMail, KBBDB can help with part of the job. This Perl-based filter sits idle waiting for messages to show up, then extracts any new sender's email address into KAddressBook.
Zipit, the WiFi Instant Messenger that lets kids IM and um, IM, has been stuffed with Pixil, a PDA Linux OS. Why?
Backing up MySQL databases normally involves running mysqldump (either manually or from a script). If you have worked with very big mysql tables (let’s say over 10GB) you already know that dumping such a table will take a while (of course this will depend from many things like hardware, mysql configuration, etc. but still whatever you do it will still take a long time for such big tables).
PHP, one of the most popular server side scripting languages has become the de facto standard in developing many of the high traffic websites around the world. The book "Building Flickr Applications with PHP" authored by Rob Kunkle and Andrew Morton is a unique book which aims to lessen the learning curve associated with developing Flickr applications with PHP.
Tonight in the People Behind KDE series of interviews we feature an Australian core hacker. He is very motivated in programming but his social life is as important. He focuses mainly on programming tools but works for core parts like kdeui too. We are talking about KDE star Hamish Rodda.
