In what many long-time observers of free and open source software consider a natural progression, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer is to join the board of the Linux Foundation.
On January 21, the New York Times published a story on Linux. This wasn't an article on technical advancement: no new kernel or distribution had been released. It wasn't financial; there wasn't yet another impressive quarter from one of the many companies that build their business around Linux.
Free software advocates, including myself, like to pontificate about how free software is a good business model. We like to hold up companies like Red Hat and show them off like a bright cliff-top lighthouse that shows the way to profitable free software.
The default shell on most Linux operating systems is called Bash. There are a couple of important hotkeys that you should get familiar with if you plan to spend a lot of time at the command line. These shortcuts will save you a ton of time if you learn them.
Here is the List of Bash Shell Keyboard Shortcuts For Linux Users:
One of the main problems facing GNU/Linux (henceforth referred to as Linux) is that it simply is not known by the majority of the computer-literate users in this world, and is used on a daily basis by even fewer.
Today, we are pleased to be able to reveal a new operating system: Peacock GNU/Linux. Of course, who better to tell you about it than its creator, Drew Peacock:
"Peacock Linux - the Galactic Operating System - aims to make the best of both worlds. It's the perfect amalgam between free and proprietary."
For the past couple weeks, I've been running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, the version of Ubuntu Linux scheduled for release next month. Actually, I'm running Kubuntu—the flavor with a KDE desktop. So, just mentally add the "K" throughout this post.
Since KDE 3.3 was released in 2004, KDE applications have used the KDELibs library KNewStuff to implement a simple interface for downloading and installing content from a centralized server.
We’re not all about Linux here at FOSSwire - in fact I personally love trying out any alternative and wacky platform you can give me, so today we’re going to stray from our usual Linux territory a bit and take a look at another free and open source operating system, SyllableOS.
I thought I’d take a quick look at the 0.6 release, so I grabbed the 0.6.3 Live CD and booted it.
Most any geek who was a kid in the 80's played with BASIC at some point. And the BASIC language with one of the biggest followings is Microsoft QBasic - Microsoft's sole nod to the hobbyist programmer community. Dozens of online sites exist today that are devoted to QBasic, Quick Basic, and Basica, existing in much the same spheres as the surviving BBS/ ANSI art culture.
Well it seems I have had at least a partial success with the installation of Linux onto this machine. Numerous attempts with openSUSE, Ubuntu and Solaris all failed dismally.
Our product tester offers a guide to enterprise-ready open- source security tools
After founding, running and selling numerous companies, Kevin Carmony saw his run at MP3.com end in a month when it was purchased by Vivendi Universal. Then Linspire founder Michael Robertson asked him, "What do you know about Linux?" Carmony responded, "I know nothing about it."
For a pretty long time I've been mildly annoyed at the constant "New updates available" notification bubble that pops more or less every day (Ubuntu Edgy Eft). Yes, it's good that the vendor is actively trying to make my desktop as secure as possible, by quickly providing fixes for recent vulnerabilities, and it gives me as a user confidence that Ubuntu is taking security seriously.
The GoblinX Premium 2007.1 is released.
The special edition created to be the main operating system of the
goblin fan, our O.S. Replacement, starts the second generation of the
distribution, full of news, special features and upgrades.
The livecd system is upgraded to use AuFS instead of UnionFS, which
brings more stability and less bugs to the system, also the Kernel
Did you game well? If no, is it because you had 3D driver issues and couldn’t make head nor tail out of this mess? Here, I discuss the most recent driver releases on the most demanding 3D application there is today on the GNU/Linux desktop.
You guessed it, 3D desktops! Since this article is getting a bit old, it’s time for an update.
3D drivers matrix—the evolution
After almost 2 years using Slackware I'm always curious with Debian and yesterday I try install it on my computer (using Debian Etch RC2 weekly build) and I choose to use AMD64 version since I own a 64bit processor.
This past Monday, Mozilla unveiled the third alpha of Gran Paradiso, the code name for Firefox 3.0. If development goes according to plan, this will be the first version of Firefox—or of any browser, for that matter—to have the three key components needed to support offline Web applications: DOM Storage; an offline execution model; and synchronization.
For the first time in almost three years, the open source BIND Domain Name System (DNS) (define) server, which translates and routes IP addresses into domain names, is getting a key point upgrade.
