Despite last week's article about running World of Warcraft on Linux with CodeWeavers' CrossOver, I can't help but feel a sense of despair when I think of gaming under Linux. It seems that over the last few years, with a few exceptions, things have gotten worse rather than better. Frankly, I've had it with gaming under Linux. It's not worth the time or the effort.
Why replace Mac OS X with Linux on an Apple eMac? I did it to revive an aging hardware platform and provide a computer to a friend. Here's how I replaced "Tiger" (OS X 10.1) first with Debian, then Ubuntu.
As we now all know, Oracle is planning their own Linux. This is causing general hand wringing and dire predictions of doom. Market fragmentation? The Linux market is already fragmented and has been for some time.
I know that many people come to the FFII—as I did—because they feel a deep sense of injustice at how the smaller players in IT are consistently squashed by special interests and monopolists. But I’m going to look at our core concern—software patents—from a different angle, one based more on economics and less on emotions.
After looking at most GNU/Linux distributions, author Rickford Grant finally settled on Ubuntu. Grant is the authour of Ubuntu Linux for Non-Geeks. Grant tells Frederick Noronha why he chose Ubuntu, what the book holds, and what the challenges were in writing it.
I was looking for a lightweight Web server to run on my ARM-based Linksys NSLU2 network storage device in order to share a few custom packages I've built for Debian and Arch Linux among the systems on my home network. After playing around with Apache, LightTPD, and thttpd, I tried fnord and never looked back.
Red Hat customers should perform compatibility tests and pilot one or two mission critical systems on Oracle's new Unbreakable Linux support for RedHat Linux, according to analyst firm Gartner.
Shares of Red Hat Inc., a provider of open source Linux software and services, jumped in morning trading on Monday after an analyst speculated that even if the company does cut prices on some of its services, it will still have healthy cash flow.
PHP Accelerators/Cachers will boost the performance of your PHP applications, by caching the compiled form of php scripts to avoid the overhead of parsing and compiling the code every time the page is loaded. This list contains all the php accelerator solutions available at this time.
If you expect every software update to bring an arsenal of shock-and-awe technologies, prepare yourself now for disappointment with version 2.0 of Firefox (as well as with IE7 and Opera 9). But if you realize what artisans and engineers have known for millennia—that improving and refining what you have beats feature bloat—this is your browser.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 supports dual monitors. To learn how to configure this multiple display and give yourself a little more room, follow the steps below.
Linux big guns Oracle and Red Hat may be battling it out for support supremacy, but local IT shops have little concern for how any outcome may affect their operations.
A few weeks ago, in Faqs! Facts! Fax! 531 in response to a query about the DT Mk II ‘Vista Ready’ computer (Boot Camp 436) I casually mentioned that if anyone was interested in finding out about how to install Linux on this machine they should write in, and you did! We are going to be looking at how to install Linux on a Windows XP computer in a dual-boot configuration.
Hong Kong based mini-PC manufacturing specialist SD-Omega has added a pair of high-end models to its extensive line of more than 20 Linux-friendly car PC models. The SD631C and PCI-slot-equipped SD631CH support Intel Pentium M and Celeron M processors at over 2GHz, and include car-specific features.

Amarok continues to blast ahead with release 1.4.4. For all users, Audacity 1.2.5 is a minor bug-fix update that addresses some problems with Audacity 1.2.4, but does not add any significant new features.

Larry Ellison knew Oracle needed its own operating system, and the Redwood Shores software company had a choice: Build it or buy it. But Ellison told attendees at last week's Oracle's OpenWorld conference that he'd found a third way -- take an operating system from another business. What Oracle did wasn't without precedent, but it crossed a line that some parts of the open-source community saw as violating the spirit of the technology.
Applications is what will bring people to Linux. But Firefox and Amarok aren’t the only apps to wow people with. The open source world looks to be succeeding in the e-mail realm as well. Introducing Kontact, KDE’s Personal Information Management application.
