"Penguins have always been a popular animal, but they do seem to be taking the nation by storm," says Christina Slager, curator of the penguin exhibit at California's Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The World Wide Web and the HTML markup language have evolved, which has presented a challenge for people writing Web browser software. Some Web sites offer a label that says, “optimized for Internet Explorer” or “optimized for Netscape Navigator”. Generally, what this label really means is that the Web site is not standards-compliant.
I had an old Toshiba PII 266 Mhz (I think), 4 GB HD, 32 Mb RAM preinstalled with windows 95 lying around, and I thought it with be fun to mess around with it a bit. Given the low specs of my toshiba box, I figured I needed to use either a distro with a text based installer or a distro with a very lightweight window manager, such as fluxbox.
All the buzz these days is about the Apple iPhone (not to be confused with the Linksys iPhone). I have to admit, the iPhone is pretty cool, and I was really excited about it for a few hours. Then, reality started to sink in and I realized that the iPhone is probably not something for me. Here are 10 reasons why I’d like to buy a Nokia N800 instead of an Apple iPhone.
Whenever a Linux system CPU is occupied by a process, it is unavailable for processing other requests. Pending requests must wait till CPU is free. This becomes a bottleneck in the system. Following command will help you to identify CPU utilization, so that you can troubleshoot CPU related performance problems.
A few months back we had looked at the Abit AW9D i975X motherboard, which was one of the first motherboards to come out of the Universal Abit camp. What we have on the table to look at today is the Abit NF-M2 nView. The NF-M2 nView is an AM2 motherboard that is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 with nForce 430 that offers both onboard DVI and VGA support along with 7.1 channel HD audio, Abit Silent OTES, and IEEE-1394a Firewire.

Installing Ubuntu linux truly could not be easier. All the hard work is done for you. There are two methods of installing Ubuntu. You may either dual boot it along with Windows or you may reformat your hard drive (erasing Windows) and install Ubuntu in its place.
Avi Kivity suggested that combining KVM, the Kernel-based Virtual Machine, with the dyntick patch could improve overall KVM performance. He noted that it would likely improve performance of both the host by "avoiding expensive vmexits due to useless timer interrupts," as well as on the guest by "reducing the load on the host when the guest is idling (currently an idle guest consumes a few percent cpu)".
Come February 18th we will usher in the year of the Pig. Looking at Linux in the perspective of the Pig we know that Richard Stallman begun his path down the Open Source road at MIT and Unix version 1 was written in 1971. In 1983 Stallman announced the GNU project and SCO Xenix was released. Outside of these events, there were no other major Open Source events in the Year of the Pig. However, Apple released its first GUI in 1983 and Windows ’95, well I think that speaks for itself. Maybe 2007 will prove to be Linux’s year.
France-based Mandriva Linux and a local partner, Datacomms-Genesys, on Dec. 21 established a subsidiary company -- Mandriva Mexico -- to market its desktop and server operating systems in the Central American country. The office will be located at Datacomms-Genesys' complex in Mexico City.
My first impression of the book was that the authors have accumulated much detailed experience. Under the unusual situation that the Linux environment is badly misbehaving, then Linux problem determination requires much learning of the sprawling underlying details.
This is a strange song. It was sung first by fans of Linspire. Now it's Ubuntu. The idea is that bundling all manner of proprietry binary drivers and multimedia codecs, and having 3D special-effects-desktops is necessary to further the cause of Free Software.
What’s Ubuntu Lite? It’s a new Linux distribution. Its goal is to make a usable Linux-based system that works on 128 MB of RAM. How they plan to achieve this goal seems straightforward: around “lightweight” applications. And it is exactly the wrong way to build a low-footprint distribution. Why?

Drs. Phil Carinas and Dominique Heger are rank-and-file members of the Linux community who have made important contributions to the growth and popularity of Linux -- Carinas through his contributions to the education of Linux users, and Heger through his work on the kernel at IBM's Linux Technology Center. While neither is a superstar whose name is immediately recognizable, they are both important in that they are typical of the thousands of individuals whose contributions, large and small, have turned the world of computing on its ear.
The debate over the costs associated with using closed-source and open-source software has been raging for years now, and a new study from the European Union is certain to add fuel to the fire. Titled the "Economic impact of open source software on innovation and the competitiveness of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector in the EU," the study looks at the role of OSS in the economy, its direct economic impact, indirect economic impact, and concludes with trends, scenarios, and policy strategies.
Gnome users have been enjoying the Feiry-themed darkness of the Satanic Edition since December the 13th. Now Satan has spread his wings to cast a foreboding shadow over the KDE desktop.
