About 3 months ago I had installed SuSe 10.1 on my computer and was thrilled about it but I always had a passion for trying something new and exciting. I always heard about Gentoo Linux that it was “the bomb.” More than half the time using the computer was spent installing this and that. I was fed up whit it so i installed SuSe 10.1 again.
First of all, I’m not Guru. I used to be a Windows user, but now I’m a Linux fan. I’ve been using Linux for quite some time now. I don’t play with the kernel or do any serious system administration stuff; I chiefly use Linux for web development and other “normal stuff” (internet, music, video, graphics etc). I’ve been using Linux for around four years, and I’ve never stuck to either KDE or GNOME.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how you can convert .rpm packages to .deb packages with a tool called alien so that you can easily install them on Debian and Ubuntu systems. Sometimes this is quite convenient as not all software projects release their software as Debian/Ubuntu packages.

For many computer users, it sounds like a nightmare - being forced to enter cryptic commands into the computer using the keyboard. Yet, it need not be such a horror show.
On the eve of the OracleWorld user conference, market watchers are divided on whether Oracle intends to make an announcement concerning its Linux plans. However, I believe it's a fair bet that Oracle is working on incorporating Ubuntu Linux into its own product.
A how-to on manually installing Xgl and compiz on Debian Sid, for KDE users, with the proprietary ATI graphics driver ("fglrx").
Seeing that the development of the ext3 file system successor has started, and that Andrew Morton has released mm patch containing ext4 file system, I decided to run some simple benchmarks, even in this early stage of development. Because the mm patch also contains Hans Reiser's reiser4 file system, I decided to run benchmarks against it, too, for a good measure.
More than half of all organizations worldwide have open source software in their production networks, and almost three-quarters of all software developers use open source in their work.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen (version 3.0.3) on a Debian Sarge (3.1) system. Then, Managing Xen With Xen-Tools, Xen-Shell, And Argo.
Yesterday I attended a meeting hosted by TACD at Harvard's Berkman Center about a very important issue -- one that is both highly technical and political at the same time -- the battle over the Open Document Format (ODF). The technical part concerns what ODF is. The political part concerns what ODF represents.
Hello! Remember me? I’m the guy who wrote Three reasons to use KDE. This time, I’ll exercise my mind by coming up with three honest reasons not to use KDE. Of course, this is not an original idea either, since it was inspired by Three reasons not to use GNOME.
Firestarter is an Open Source visual firewall program. The software aims to combine ease of use with powerful features, therefore serving both Linux desktop users and system administrators.
Each chapter of Building Web Sites With Mambo: A Step-by-Step Tutorial is organized nicely and includes plenty of screenshots. The biggest issue I found was that even though the title says that the book is a step-by-step tutorial, that's not how the book flowed.

The "Linux Distribution Chooser" walks you through a brief set of 16 questions designed to determine which Linux distro might be best for you.
Oracle has the ability to support Linux, and doing so could have "tactical value" for the database company, the founder of Ubuntu Linux--and a potential Oracle partner--said Friday.
First impressions can be deceptive. However, in this case, luckily not—Ajax and PHP is an excellent read for content creators and programmers of conventional websites that use PHP as their server side language. The content of the book deals with all the salient points for building a more dynamic, active and interesting web content.
In August Intel had announced their new Linux graphics driver website as well as announcing the immediate availability of open-source display drivers for the 965 Express Chipset. This Chipset offers fourth-generation Intel graphics architectures in the form of the GMA 3000 and GMA X3000. Here at Phoronix we have run some tests on the Q965 Chipset and GMA 3000 graphics with their open-source drivers, and have our results to share today under GNU/Linux. We had also compared Intel's open-source graphics performance against the open-source R300 DRI drivers.
Mozilla will release the latest version of its browser, Firefox 2, on Tuesday, the company said Friday.
