Legal Technology Blog: It seems that every year there are claims by some industry pundits that this is the “Year of Linux.” Obviously, they have been wrong to date. However, a couple things have happened recently that have led me to believe that, even if not in 2007, then by the end of the decade, Linux will have its year.
Penguin Pete: Here's a topic I don't see a tutorial on anywhere. While Gimp is NOT a 3D ray-tracer, it does have some plug-ins that perform simple 3D functions. We're going to exploit the "Map Object" plug-in for all it's worth, here. Then we'll look at a more common method.
kernelTRAP: Ingo Molnar announced that the real time patchset [story] that he and Thomas Gleixner maintain is now available as a series of 374 broken out patches, "from now on (as of 18.104.22.168-rt2) it will be part of every upstream -rt release and it is available from the -rt download site".
the distrogue: I had the question asked again. You know the one: "Where's my C:\ drive?". So, to prevent it from happening again, I'm writing a guide to the Linux filesystem for Windows users.
/home/liquidat: After playing around with the OpenSuse Build Service for some days now I decided to build development packages of kblogger as a first real life test.
desktoplinux: Walter Bender, the One Laptop Per Child program's director of software, told DesktopLinux.com on July 13 that he invites Dell Computer founder and CEO Michael Dell to help figure out how to better use 125 million computers that are discarded annually because they are archaic.
Everyone uses a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. What are the best choices of equipment for these?
softpedia: Gobuntu is a just like Kubuntu or Xubuntu, a flavor of the Ubuntu distribution that has a very strict set of restrictions on the licenses of code and content. The installation process of Gobuntu is text mode-based, and it is quite painful for most users, because it will not detect modern hardware.
watchingthenet: For Window users switching to Linux or Ubuntu, performing simple tasks can be a challenge. One simple task such as checking free and used hard drive disk space on Ubuntu.
Also: Ubuntu taskswitching
Linux Online: A recent blog post entitled Confessions of a Linux Fan has provoked some discussion in the Linux community. In it, the author lists 10 things (10 seems to be the preferred number of these kinds of posts) that new Linux users should be aware of. The disinformation you see out there about Linux needs to be refuted.
LinuxPlanet: Want to get rid of the evil caps lock key without mutilating your keyboard? Want to give those silly Windows keys useful jobs, or put all those extra multi-media keys to work? Want to become a powerhouse keyboarding commando? Then come along and join the fun.
greatsouthernlad: Funny thing happened today. I thought it would be great to listen to a little Australian Rules Football. About half way through my Mini mac dramas, I wonder whether my Ubuntu (Feisty) installation on my laptop would fair any better.
linuxdevices: Palm's Linux-powered Foleo has potential, but only if Palm can stop denying that the device is actually laptop, reckons Sascha Segan of Gearlog. Palm has positioned the Foleo as a "mobile companion" for itinerant workers needing only email, document prep, and PowerPoint capabilities.
kdedevelopers: The akonadi provider relies on the OpenChange libraries, which in turn rely on Samba 4. The problem is that GPLv2 and GPLv3 are not compatible. My code is fine - it is "GPLv2 or later". The incompatibility is that Qt is released under GPLv2 (not "or later").
adamw: Mandriva recently completed its participation in the KDE aKademy 2007 conference, sponsoring the event, presenting various technologies, and providing Mandriva Flash keys to developers attending the conference. Today Mandriva announces a similar program for the GNOME conference, GUADEC 2007, which is taking place in Birmingham from July 15th to July 21st.
Red Hat Mag: This is actually the second summer we’ve run Red Hat High. We learned a lot of lessons in our first year. The biggest lesson: We’re a technology company, not a summer camp company.
The Open Source Advocate: If Ubuntu wants to be taken seriously in the workplace, it needs a secure remote desktop. Many people have a need to connect to their work computer from home using remote desktop technology.
MozillaLinks: All European countries saw an increase in Firefox participation with Hungary showing the most dramatic increase from 27.2%, in the latest March 2007 survey, to 39.7%. Overall, Europe grew from 24.1% to 27.8%.
Motho ke motho ka botho: One thing I forgot to mention about my thus-far-successful adventure tuning my coworker’s VAIO … Xubuntu ran awfully slow on that machine. The live CD was so sluggish as to be unusable. It was PUD/GNU Linux that saved the day.
