At the end of 2006, I prepared myself for a "survival experiment". After having read how a KDE fan was able to "survive" after a month of immersion in GNOME, I thought I could undergo a similar, though opposite process: how can a GNOME fanboy survive in KDE?
Just before new year, on December 31st 2006 the Free Culture Foundation site has been launched. The site appears to be mimicking the Free Software Foundation in form and also presents four core freedoms on which the Free Culture Movement should be based, to use, create, share and learn.
"Thus, this [Supreme] Court's precedent repeatedly sets out that software, which is nothing more than a set of instructions – an algorithm – to be performed by a computer in order to solve some mathematical problem, is subject matter that is not patentable..."
Neither the ext4 filesystem nor Samba 4 are ready for prime-time yet, but they are chock-full of promise and potential, so let's take a look at what they are promising to deliver.
Nearly half of all enterprises will be running mission-critical business applications on Linux in five years' time. The company predicts a steep rise: only 18 percent of businesses will be using Linux in business-critical roles by the end of 2007.

More than 7,000 angry Linux users have protested against the European Union after it excluded them from viewing streaming videos. Stefan Esterer created an online petition last Friday which calls on the EU to stop excluding open-source users.

Apple calls it Quartz. Microsoft calls it something else but it’s most visible in Aero Glass - the transparent theme in Vista. In the free software world we have Xgl and AIGLX (Ubuntu is going down the AIGLX road).
The open souce arena is forming a rather formidable fan following. In the beginning this was a small community known onl to a niche audience but today we see a different pisture. Commercial software and the the open source software seem to be at the same footing.
I found the book titled "Core Python Programming" authored by Wesley.J.Chun and published by Prentice Hall to be an ideal book to learn the wonderful Python language. This book is quite voluminous, with 23 chapters spanning 1050 pages.
The aim of this article is to introduce the reader to Bzflags. Bzflags is a free software multiplayer 3D tank game that is frantic, full of immediate action, with a kill or be killed emphasis. The game is best served in multiplayer mode where you can hunt in packs, fight to the last ounce while chatting. Instant violent fun, gratification for those of you that need to let off steam and clear your minds living for the moment.
Firefox fans will be facing 2007 with more tranquillity than they did 2006. A year ago, it was clear that Firefox's free ride was about to end: after an astonishing five years of inactivity, Microsoft was finally launching an updated version of Internet Explorer.

That the idea has been floated again does not surprise me. This is a year when Microsoft will be seeking to push a new version of its Windows operating system down consumers' throats. It's also a year when several GNU/Linux distributions can claim to be sufficiently desktop-oriented for the average person to have no problem using any one of them.
Jeremy Allison is a hero in the open source community these days. After spending two years at Novell, he decided to leave the Waltham, Mass.-based software company for reasons of principle right after the Linux-vendor signed a deal with Microsoft. Before he starts a new job at search engine Google Tuesday, Mr. Allison answered some questions from Red Herring.
Kubuntu is a distribution which takes Ubuntu's base packages and adds to it the KDE desktop and a set of KDE applications. Although the two distributions are similar in many ways, their desktop and default set of applications are extremely different.
Distributing software packages to all of our servers is a tedious task. Currently, a release manager makes a connection to each server and transfers files using ftp. This involves entering passwords multiple times, waiting for transfers to complete, changing directories, and keeping files organized. We developed a shell script that makes the job easier.
Given the jaw-dropping occurrences in the open source world last year (Red Hat’s acquisition of JBoss, Oracle’s announcement of “Unbreakable Linux,” and Novell’s patent pact with Microsoft, to name a few), InfoWorld’s Neil McAllister says balancing open and proprietary, commercial and free, will be the critical task for enterprise IT managers this year and for a time to follow.
