I’ve been using linux for at least four years now, and I’ve tried out most of the top distributions available. This guide is for noobs to decide which distribution of linux to use.
Despite being on record as disliking public speaking, Mark Shuttleworth was in Dublin last month to give the keynote speech at this year's ApacheCon Europe. His theme was the future direction of open source software (OSS), and the issues developers should focus on to ensure the OSS movement’s continued success.
I'm overwhelmed. This is the book I wanted when I started learning about Unix. OK, Linux didn't exist then, but if it had existed, and if I were sticking my toes in it, this would have been THE book.
We fondly remember Sam Palmisano's promise more than two years ago to have all IBM employees running Linux on their desktops the end of 2005. We weren't surprised that the actual rollout was quietly swept under the carpet and did not occur.
A doctoral thesis submitted to the University of Zurich in Switzerland has focused on the question of what makes developers of open-source software tick. The answer is not much of a surprise:
The newest SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, version 10, is so close to being done that you can almost taste it. Novell released the gold master last week to its partners, and the server version, SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server), based on the same code, is also almost ready for release. This is an early review of the new version of SLED 10 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop).
The Smart Package Manager hopes to beat the native package management applications for distributions like Red Hat, SUSE, and Debian at their own game. Still in beta, it has support for most major GNU/Linux package and repository formats. Smart introduces many innovative and useful ideas, but its killer feature is the algorithms it uses to select packages and versions.
The KOffice team is pleased to announce KOffice version 1.5.2. This is mainly a bugfix release but also contains numerous translation updates. Especially KWord, KSpread and Kexi have received critical bug fixes.
VMware has made its server product generally available from Wednesday. The product, previously the paid-for GSX Server, has been free to download in beta form for months but is now cooked according to VMware.
After Lotus announced the release of the Lotus Notes 7.0.1 stand-alone client for Linux, IBM Lotus Chief Ed Brill conceded that the reaction was mixed... Which was a modest bit of understatement.

Like PC-BSD, DesktopBSD provides many features that will allow a complete Unix novice to start using the operating system immediately. Those already familiar with FreeBSD and the KDE desktop will recognize the tools underlying the GUI conveniences.
MySQL has published its first "end of life" timetable for its open-source database and will no longer provide free updates for some older versions of the product starting next month, it said this week.
One core Debian server has been reinstalled after a compromise and services have been restored. On July 12th the host gluck.debian.org has been compromised using a local root vulnerability in the Linux kernel. The intruder had access to the server using a compromised developer account.
We have already written about ext2/ext3 file repair using fsck and other utilities. Linux comes with different filesystems and different repair utilities. To repair a ReiserFS filesystem you need to reiserfsck command which is a checking tool for the ReiserFS filesystem (just like fsck command for ext2/ext3 file system).
