I read with great amusement a blog entry from Bryan O'Bryan entitled Why I ditched my Mac for Linux and some of the comments (no time to read them all; perhaps later). Instead of leaving a comment there and having it lost in the 100+ comments, I decided to respond here.
I recently got a chance to try out the new KateOS 3.0 alpha and beta versions, and I must say, I'm very impressed. The new release brings a number of improvements, such as OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 included by default, and all of the most recent versions of many applications.
Over the years I have spent as much spare time as I can to get better at writing. I consider myself an adequate writer, not good, but adequate. Suprisingly I recently came across some old Unix tools that run right from the prompt and will not mangle the original text. Diction and style are not grammar checkers but instead, grammar helpers.
One persistent problem I used to face while using GNU/Linux was when I visited sites containing certain flash based games. The games played well but they never displayed the text embedded in it.
In its short but illustrious history the FOSS movement has been accused of being akin to communism. So just the other day as I was considering whether to wear my hammer and sickle shirt, I saw some Microsoft press releases that made me choke on my unpleasant dark rye bread. Microsoft Executive lauds open source? Pardon?
The open-source Linux operating system has made deep in-roads into the servers of large companies, but employee desktop's have so far remained Microsoft's stronghold.
This is part four of the the successful series All About the Apps, reminding us that while KDE 4 development may be fun, to watch to find great apps working today KDE 3 beats them all. This time we report on the Linux equivalent of Cubase - Rosengarden, the great Basket, KPhotoAlbum and the next version of KDevelop.
Team Mobile told us about a cool feature that is likely not documented. In KDE on SLED10, when you mouse over the screen resolution applet’s icon, you can use the mouse wheel to increase or decrease the screen brightness.
As with other Slackware derivatives, obtaining a properly-working PPPoE ADSL connection is not 100% trivial, despite the use of Roaring Penguin's rp-pppoe package.
Lighttpd has mod_cgi module that allows you running perl and other server side programs (cgi-bin).
While all the hoopla was taking place out in Portland at the Eight Annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) this week, some of us noted the ever-so-quiet death of what should have been a vibrant open source project: OpenDarwin.
At some hot, boring afternoon I got an _Idea_. With the help of public accessible e-mail adresses I asked 10 questions to a bunch of programmers that I consider very interesting people, such as Linus Torvalds, Dave Thomas, & Guido Van Rossum.
The Apache project has disclosed a vulnerability in just about all versions of the Apache HTTP server. The problem only affects sites using mod_rewrite.
It's hard for me to imagine using an OS without a strong command line. But who really uses it? Well, I do, and maybe you do, but most Windows users certainly don't, and most Mac users are equally command line phobic. Linux users may be a bit more apt to drop into typing-land, but even there its being pushed into insignificance.
Unfortunately, many people believe that Beowulfs don't lend themselves particularly well to everyday tasks. On one extreme, companies such as Pixar use these computer systems to render their latest films, and on the other, scientists around the world are using them this minute to do everything from simulations of nuclear reactions to the unraveling of the human genome. The good news is that high-performance computing doesn't have to be confined to academic institutions and Hollywood studios.
OpenNMS is an opensource enterprise network management tool. It helps network administrators to monitor critical services on remote machines and collects the information of remote nodes by using SNMP. OpenNMS has a very active community, where you can register yourself to discuss your problems. Normally openNMS installation and configuration takes time, but i have tried to cover installation and configuration part in few steps.
With LinuxWorld San Francisco 2006 just around the corner, curiosity is hovering in the air over IDG's plans for future Linux and open source events. What's the bottom line on this subject from IDG's VP of LinuxWorld, Melinda Kendall?
