Sun Microsystems Inc has announced that is now providing support and services for the OpenOffice.org office productivity suite, which is already based on its own support StarOffice product.
The Santa Clara, California-based company is offering both standard and premium services, for OpenOffice.org on the Sparc and Intel versions of its Solaris operating system, as well as Linux and Windows.
As promised last week, here's the first build with built-in Fraud Protection. It's a very early preview of the technology, so everything is not entirely done yet, some sites actually show up wrong (silly bug with CNET sites!), and the icons are kind of ugly. Even the version number is wrong.
Usually I prefer to review books one at a time. In the case of these two books, though, my usual practices have to be ignored. These two books not only need to be reviewed together, they need to be purchased and read together.
I've always been a proponent of choice. Maybe it has to do with my biology study, I don't know. Variation makes a population stronger and resilient. So, it is only logical that there is a large variety of desktop environments and window managers. However...
So you want to learn Linux? The best way, the only really good way, is to get a distribution, load it on a computer and give it a try. Any of the ones I mentioned recently at DesktopLinux.com in "What's the best Linux for beginners?" will do fine.
Installing and configuring mod_auth_mysql involves a few steps, the first of which is to create the necessary database structures to hold the user data. Start by loading up your favorite MySQL client, and creating the database.
According to the Adobe Labs Web site, the big new features in Flash 9 are a full-screen display and a version that runs under Linux. I downloaded the plug-in for Firefox, as well as the standalone Flash Player, to see how it worked.
I am, for the most part, an only child. So it used to puzzle me greatly when my two daughters would fight over the most trivial of issues. Such are my feelings regarding the current rash of KDE/GNOME bashing going on in various blogs and forums.
This how-to will walk you through installing Grand Theft Auto 3 on Ubuntu Dapper with Wine version 0.9.9. This how-to is the result of many hours spent dealing with wine-cvs, the latest stable wine, and the 'standard' wine that Dapper provides in the repositories.
Reiser, 42, is being held without bail in the Santa Rita jail in California pending a hearing on November 28, when he is supposed to enter a plea. His lawyers, who now include Daniel Horowitz, whose own wife was murdered last year in a highly publicized case, said they delayed entering a plea so they could review the evidence against him.

The Science Museum in London will Saturday launch the first exhibition dedicted to the history of video games, with fans able to put their old skills to the test on more than 120 classics.
The “character” I like most about the free software community is that it is not afraid of setting itself audacious goals. I like that in a person, especially when combined with a cunning plan, good ethics and a capacity for work, and if you think of the free software community as a gaia-like “living creature” it very much has those same traits.
We’ve already looked at using rsync to backup files and folders to external drives, now let’s use it to move date too and from remote machines. What you’ll need is to have ssh installed on both machines, and accounts to log into on both of them.

Discussion draft 3 of GPLv3 is due in early November, approximately. Before that is finalised, I'd like to review the debate over DRM and the Linux kernel developers.

I'm standing in a room full of gamers in what must certainly feel to some like heaven: Sony's PlayStation 3 prelaunch press event. From the street, it's not clear why such an event would matter, but inside, on two floors filled almost literally to the rafters with high-definition TVs and PS3s, it's obvious that this is the center of the video game universe today.
I recently replaced both my Epson CX5400 All-in-one printer/scanner and my Brother MFC-210C fax/copier with a single all-in-one Hewlett-Packard Officejet 5610. Not only does the new product do more than both of the machines it replaced, it does it in less space. The price isn't real big, either.
The IT chief at a London Borough which was a key battleground between Microsoft and open source has described open source software as a "red herring".
