There are 347 languages with more than a million speakers. But even Ubuntu, which has amazing infrastructure for translation and a great community that actually does the work, is nowhere close to being fully translated in more than 10 or 15 languages.
As much fun as it has been -- and it has been fun -- to hear Steve Ballmer verbally backhand Linux distributors with threats of patent lawsuits, to watch the whole Microsoft-Novell Linux deal dissolve faster than a Britney Spears marriage, we all might want to take a step back and pay attention to something very important that will start this week: The US Supreme Court is going to take a look at patents.
The stable Flash Player plugin for Linux is crusty old version 7 -- trailing more than two calendar years, two major revisions, and one corporate buyout behind the Windows and Mac offerings. But now Adobe has finally unveiled a beta release of Flash Player 9 for Linux. Was it worth the wait? And should you install it now, or hold off a little longer for the official, stable product instead?
ONE OF THE lawyers involved in defending cases bought against people by the RIAA claims that if the music industry wins a crucial case, the Internet will have to be switched off.
Firefox is more than just a web browser. It’s also a cross-platform arcade machine. No quarters necessary.
This tutorial describes how to install a Linux print server with CUPS. It also covers the installation and configuration of printer drivers on the print server as well as the printer setup on a Windows 2000 client.
I found this great utility for Gnome that I just can’t keep as a secret! It is called the Desktop Data Manager and includes “a clipboard history for many different types of content” like text and images that sits in your notification area (system tray), and an application to take screenshots of a single window, a region of the screen, or the whole desktop. Being able to select the region of the screen is VERY important to me and it’s a huge time-saver.
The techo-resistant person in my life is my own spouse. See, my wife loves to work with her hands. So, her instinctive reaction to computers and software was “why do I need that?” However, in the last few years, I converted her into a bona-fide computer user just as I converted her to Chinese food. So how did I activate her latent geek genes?
The Asian Institute of Technology will soon be home to an open source centre of excellence for "Linux on the Desktop" following the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the United Nations University. This will be the first centre of excellence of its kind funded by the UNU outside of Greater China.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds proclaimed, "friends don't let friends use '-W'," in a thread discussing GCC's handling of warnings. The thread began with a patch to remove an unnecessary comparison of an unsigned variable which resulted in a GCC warning.
Novell has axed support for the Hula open source collaboration suite for email, calendaring and contact lists.
Last week I left off with installing Fedora Core 6 and actually booting it up on my test PC. It was a heroic struggle, and I persevered and triumphed. Today I'll review some of FC6's enterprise-worthy features.
It was hard to believe, but early Saturday morning my kids snuck downstairs, grabbed my laptop out of the bag and started using it for fun and games. What was more surprising was the fact that they chose my laptop running Fedora, rather than the family PC running Windows with all of the kids games and edutainment packages.
Yast is nice… for configuration purposes. But it’s a dreadful package manager, because it takes quite some time to load up all the stuff, synchronize with remote repositories or whatever it does before giving the user the option to actually do something useful. There are alternatives however.
Make-live is a brilliant new method of making stuff live without all that messing around in hyperspace. (<-- non-sequitur HHGTG reference. Sorry) Or, to put it another way, make-live is a brilliant new method for creating a zombie army of flesh-eating slaves.
The OpenDocument Format Alliance (ODF Alliance) today applauded Brazil's decision to recommend ODF as the government's preferred format; India's decision to use ODF at a major state government agency; and Italy's decision to recognize ODF as national standard.
Open Source Development Labs said Tuesday that Datang Mobile, a Chinese handset manufacturer, will join OSDL as an active member of the Mobile Linux Initiative.
Samba is an open source project that allows Windows users to connect to a Linux server from which to share data. If you are looking for a simple, affordable home file server, or need more disk space on your office network, a Linux server with Samba is the way to go. Here's how you can set up a simple Samba server on Slackware for SOHO use.
The aim of the iptables-tutorial is to explain iptables in a complete and simple way. The tutorial has recently been under heavy scrutiny and updating, as can be seen in this, the latest version of the tutorial.
You may have noticed that I don't cover news about the never-ending SCO vs. IBM, Linux, Novell, et al much anymore. There's a reason for that: SCO doesn't matter anymore.
