It is time yet again where the next Fedora Core installment (this time, Core 6) begins to grab the attention of red-hat-wearing penguins and other GNU/Linux enthusiasts. Yesterday was the inaugural test release of Fedora Core 6, which is targeted at die-hard Fedorians, and any other users wishing to get a glimpse at what Fedora Core 6 will hold in store.
Toward the end of 2005 I was reading about “the year for Linux” everywhere I went. No matter where I looked, I always found articles by GNU/Linux fans (like me) that expected this year (2006) to be “the year for Linux” (once and for all). In fact, it’s been quite a few years now that I’ve been reading that “this will be the year for Linux”. And let me tell you something: I don’t want the year for Linux to come... ever! Period.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 provides users with integrated "Desktop Search," which is built on Beagle. The name Beagle is mostly hidden in the product, since the name "Beagle" would not mean much to many users.
There have been quite a few articles and books on podcasting already, and some of them are excellent--particularly the ones that deal with some small part of the process. How do you put a podcast together?
Tired of normal distro reviews, I decided to write a review in the form of a diary. Written by an intermediate Gentoo user, this review offers some insight in administering a Gentoo desktop. So bear with me while I try to make my stuff work!
The first development ISO images of Mandriva Linux 2007 have been released for download and testing. At the time of writing only Mandriva One live CD images for the i586 and x86_64 architectures are available, but expect the usual full (4-CD) installation sets to appear on Mandriva mirrors in a day or two.
Linux isn't a threat to Windows on the desktop and is losing steam on the server as customers separate the operating system from the development model, according to Microsoft's chief platform strategist.
The translation of Red Hat errata into Oval allows organisations looking to secure Red Hat operating systems to rely on open, standards-based tests that can be digested by assessment tools in order to perform instant and automated evaluations.
BSD users can improve system security with that operating system's jail mechanism, which creates a partition of resources, thereby creating a logical barrier between services running inside different such jails. Under Linux, an application called Linux-VServer implements pretty much the same functionality.
You've just installed a new Linux distribution on your computer and it won't play your MP3 files? All your songs are encoded in that format and you don't know what to do? Well, don't worry. This is a common problem in Linux and it has a simple solution.
I had to spend 9 hours in Miami, waiting for a connecting flight. So, I decided that I would pay $7.95 for a “day pass” for the Wifi connection. I asked: "You use Microsoft servers, don’t you?" This sad story becomes worse.
Ever wonder how Lightning McQueen and friends looked so good in the movie Cars? A lot of that spit and polish came from the Pixar Animation Studio's Linux workstations and servers.
The open source software paradigm has changed the software market, but open source itself is becoming so established that it will be boring in five years, panelists said at an industry event held at the Computer History Museum on Wednesday evening.
Novell, Inc. today announced that its Board of Directors has elected President Ronald W. Hovsepian, 45, to the additional position of chief executive officer, effective immediately.
Plugging a new PC into your network, going out for a healthy walk, and returning to a completed operating system installation is one of life's little pleasures. Remember, laziness is a virtue in network administration. Hamsters spend their lives running the same circles. Network administrators automate repetitive tasks.
Are you ridiculously paranoid? Do you like to jam in your bedroom? Can you think of nothing better than digital image editing? Then a ridiculously niche Linux distribution is just what you need and only a download away. Welcome to the world of obscurity.
Over the past couple of years, I have seen an alarming increase in people concerned over China's efforts to gain a stronger foothold in the digital marketplace. Most recently, China has been placing their bets on Linux over Windows.
Sometimes we need a little help to drown out the noise that surrounds us. But why settle for archaic bothers like setting up birdhouses by the study window or walking out to the woods, or high-dollar noise generation machines? Free software can generate noise to drown out your distractions, from the comfort of your own workstation.
