Software giant Microsoft announced yesterday that it will begin shipping its newest operating system, Windows Linux Ubuntu, by the end of this month. Computers sold with this free, open-source operating system pre-installed will cost, on average, $149.95 fewer than computers sold with Windows Vista Service Pack 9 pre-installed.
A few days ago I tried Kubuntu just to have a change in scenery. I also did it to test the KDE 4 Windows manager. to say the least I was not impressed. For the past 2 years I have used Gnome as my windows manager for Ubuntu. I decided to test out the KDE 4 windows manager to see if the hype was accurate. In my opinion it isn’t.
Windows Vista didn’t turn out particularly well and even though it is strengthening, and Microsoft’s numbers have reflected this strength, it is slated for replacement in 2009/10 according to Microsoft.
It was back in February that we originally looked at the AB9 motherboard from Abit; however, this P965 motherboard had a few problems that had prevented this motherboard from functioning well with Linux. But have things since improved for this motherboard? We now have our compatibility report for the Abit AB9 as we see if things have changed for the better or worse under Linux and Solaris.
To be perfectly honest, I am writing this as a reply to alexexmachina's posting where his "unbiased" A Look At Windows Vista - Is It For You? seems a little too biased towards how great Vista is. So here is my reply in the form of a look at Linux so Bring on the flames
Is Linux For You?
The PC supplier said on Tuesday it would sell machines with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed later this month. But Dell has told ZDNet UK that the systems will be only be sold in the US for now. It refused to reveal any timescale for the sale of such systems in the UK.
I’m a huge rtorrent fan. I can’t imagine why anyone would use anything else, unless there’s something funky the big-name programs can do, that rtorrent just doesn’t handle yet.
I realize that Ubuntu 7.04 has been out for a bit already, but today is the first day I have actually done a fresh installation of it. I ran the upgrade on my desktop and it was fine, I just never really bothered to check out anything new.
Late last week the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project had a media event in Cambridge, and while I couldn't make the event, I did tape a video interview for the BBC on the project.
Released on April 30, GoblinX 2.0 is a live CD Linux distribution based on Slackware from Brazil.
The latest release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL 5) sees the usual clutch of open source performance, functionality and security updates joined, for the first time, by integrated virtualisation facilities deemed suitable for production use.
Back in the office Wednesday afternoon, I thought it would be interesting to follow up on Dell's choice of Ubuntu as its Linux option on consumer PCs. One of my first steps was to send e-mail inquiries to some of the members of the Pacific Northwest Ubuntu user group, hoping to hear their thoughts.
In this article I will show how to install and configure fail2ban on a Debian Etch system. Fail2ban is a tool that observes login attempts to various services, e.g. SSH, FTP, SMTP, Apache, etc., and if it finds failed login attempts again and again from the same IP address or host, fail2ban stops further login attempts from that IP address/host by blocking it with an iptables firewall rule.
Can Linux change my business? Can Linux improve my business? Is my Ipod safe to use with Linux? And what about the movies I stored the last couple of years?
In the 1980s, a running joke among PC specialists was: "This year will be the tenth consecutive Year of the Network". Indeed, PC LANs took a decade to become established, despite strong pressure from manufacturers selling the obvious advantages.

Some time ago I wrote about some recent adventures of mine in loading Ubuntu Linux on an old laptop I had laying around. That was fun, and educational too.
Get ready for a bonkers-ly small Linux machine, called Linutop, as it comes on sale.
For us the cool features of the Linutop are its silent operation, small size (9.3 x 2.7 x 15 cm) and low energy consumption - less than 6 watts.
Firefox users are drawing on Dell's user-driven IdeaStorm site to push the computer maker to preinstall the open-source browser.
With Dell's announcement Tuesday that it will offer Ubuntu Linux on some systems, the petition to put Firefox on new PCs has climbed to second place on IdeaStorm, behind a call to offer OpenOffice.org, a free application suite.
In late April, SUSE Project Manager Andreas Jaeger announced on the openSUSE list that "Beginning with the next alpha release of openSUSE 10.3, alpha 4, ZENworks will be gone. Instead, openSUSE "will use the native tools only -- Zypper, openSUSE-updater, and YaST."
