Raiden's Realm: A lot of the greatest hype in the Linux world has been around Ubuntu and its derivatives, namely Kubuntu, Edubuntu and the like. However, there's yet another contender in the Linux world that has been making a lot of noise and is worth a good hard look. Enter PcLinuxOS.
dot.kde.org: KWin, KDE's window manager, has been around since KDE 2.0 (replacing KWM in KDE 1.x) and has grown to be a mature and stable window manager over the years. For KDE 4, however, there were a few people rumbling about visual effects, and perhaps KWin was feeling a little envious of its younger cousins Compiz and Beryl.
Dana Blankenhorn: I want to continue our discussion about penguins as predators by talking about Covalent. Covalent’s business is supporting open source projects. Today Covalent added support for nine new Apache technologies to its roster and it’s expanding. Is it being predatory?
ArsGeek: With Ubuntu hitting the main stream (don’t argue with me, being sold by Dell is about as mainstream as you can get) I’ve been thinking about their constant upgrade/release cycle among other potential obstacles that may stand in the way of more widespread adoption of my favorite operating system.
You can customize the UNIX shell to save time, to save typing, and to adapt to your style of work. Shell startup files capture your preferences and recreate your shell environment session after session, even machine to machine.
CyberNetNews: Today is a big day for Mozilla because it marks the last version of Firefox 1.5 that will ship. This last release was definitely necessary though since Mozilla had never prompted 1.5.x users to upgrade to Firefox 2, but that is about to change.
Batteries Not Included: I have been using Ubuntu for approximately 2 months now. This has been a fairly monogamous relationship, I think I booted Windows all of twice. So, what does it feel like?
OpenOffice.org Training, Tips, and Ideas: Who wants to pay for someone else to make your wedding invitations? (Or programs, or whatever.) Use OpenOffice for your wedding invitations. This of course prompts the objection, "But there aren't any templates in OpenOffice."
/home/liquidat: Most free X.Org graphic drivers are based on Mesa, which is a free OpenGL specification implementation. However, while OpenGL is already in Version 2.1 the Mesa implementation only supports version 1.5. This is to change soon - but OpenGL will make new releases as well.
Washington Post: Makers of some of the most popular extensions, or "add-ons," for Mozilla's Firefox Web browser may have inadvertently introduced security holes that criminals could use to steal sensitive data from millions of users.
The life of a systems or network administrator requires us to maintain an expansive understanding of our network infrastructure to more effectively manage it.
Free Software Mag: GNU/Linux is the most popular operating system built with free/open source software. However, it is not the only one: FreeBSD is also becoming popular for its stability, robustness and security. In this article, I’ll take a look at their similarities and differences.
tectonic: Red Hat recently released a set of free fonts designed to be a metrically-exact replacement for the Microsoft Core TrueType fonts. Installing fonts on Linux, however, has not always been the easiest of tasks so Tectonic dug around a little to make a simple guide to installing these, and other, fonts on most flavours of Linux.
linux.com: Recently I wrote about locking down the GNOME desktop environment with Pessulus. In this article, I'll show you how to do the same for KDE, using Kiosktool, a front end for changing the KDE configuration files in users' home folders and the /etc/kde* folders.
DPotD: Sometimes, you’ll want to download something but you don’t want it to completely saturate your Internet connection. Perhaps you’re already downloading something more important, or you simply don’t want to get in the way of other people that are sharing the same Internet connection. Enter Trickle.
ZDNet: At first blush, the new offering, with a proposed release this fall, appears to have the makings of a serious competitor. Designed as an add-on “EDU-CD” to accompany the upcoming 10.3 release of openSUSE, the so-called “SLEducator” is designed to “[ease] the installation and configuration of an educational network and student desktop.
LinuxWorld: "Readahead" is the act of speculatively reading a portion of a file's contents into memory in the expectation that a process working with that file will soon want that data. When readahead works well, a data-consuming process will find that the information it needs is available to it when it asks, and that waiting for disk I/O is not necessary.
Debian Administration: One of my main goals for a managed infrastructure is to make sure I have consistent versions of end-user applications installed everywhere. It was time to make Debian-style packages of the big, expensive third-party stuff.
infoworld: Symantec researchers have detailed a painfully simple attack method that hackers may already be using to bypass security protections and break into UNIX and Linux-based computers.
pronetadvertising: Though the move may not 'directly' result in a significant amount of sales, from a marketing perspective this will help momentously in terms of getting Dell's name out there.
