The folks at Mandriva are hard at work preparing the next incarnation of MandrivaLinux systems for home, office, and server applications. Mandriva Linux 2007.1 Beta 2 was announced yesterday and I wanted to take a look. I didn't spend a lot of time in it due to a personal showstopper, but what I saw really nice looking. So, as brief as it may be, I'd thought I'd share my experiences with my visitors.
Tex and the Ripper gang are proud to announce that PCLinuxOS 2007 Test Release 3 (Almost there) is now available for download and testing.

I started a few weeks ago to port the mimetype support in KDE to the "share mime info" standard from freedesktop.org (http://standards.freedesktop.org/shared-mime-info-spec/latest). There are a number of reasons for doing that:
Many people still have not seen the innovative display of the OLPC project's "XO" laptop. It has twice the resolution of a regular LCD (200 dpi), and works in bright daylight in gray-scale reflective mode.

Lets start first with the kernel. Lets apply the Con Kolivas patches, these are patches designed to improve system responsiveness with specific emphasis on the desktop, but suitable to any workload. Concurrent booting allows Ubuntu to take advantage of dual-core processors, as well as processors that hyperthread.
How would you like to study at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) for free? MIT provides just one of the 10 open source educational success stories detailed below. Open source and open access resources have changed how colleges, organizations, instructors, and prospective students use software, operating systems and online documents for educational purposes.
To set expectations, this post is part mini-review of Foresight, part comparison to Ubuntu, and just my opinions and thoughts on Foresight after using another distribution for almost 3 years.
Congratulations to the incredible Ubuntu LoCo Community for an excellent LoCo Docs Day on March 3rd. A number of documents were refined and improved on the day, including:
That's the question that occurs to me as I read this piece in Roughly Drafted. It's about how Apple is kicking Microsoft's butt at the high end of the desktop market, and how Microsoft seems to be bumbling its way out of desktop hegemony anyway. Linux is mentioned only twice in this long piece, but the harbingery of the references are significant.
So I have spent the last couple of days installing and setting up Ubuntu 6.10 Desktop on my laptop. Some pros found: Installation was easy and quick from the Ubuntu DVD, All of my hardware was detected and drivers were installed with no issues, and The default software packages give me what I need to do most of the time.
MARK Shuttleworth, South Africa’s billionaire Afronaut, is planning to live to 100 — and to have spent all his money by then. He does not see the need to increase his billions “trying to climb some chart” and he is prepared “to spend chunks of it having fun.”

With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. This tutorial is the third in a series of articles where I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.
There is a discussion going on over at Slashdot regarding what /etc in Linux/Unix stands for. Is it an acronym or does it stand for 'et cetera' ?
