Open source should be on the short list when it comes to application-buying decisions in 2007, industry experts say.
Opera Software may well be putting its browser users at risk by not properly disclosing security vulnerabilities to vulnerable users. At least that's the allegation made by Mozilla Corp.'s Asa Dotzler.
THE AU Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) is beefing up its research and development capabilities with a Linux cluster that will support the weather agency's meteorological, oceanographic and space divisions.
Virtualization, the ability to run multiple "virtual" systems on a single host, is nearly as old as solid state computing. But it's been all the rage again in recent years, with more than a dozen large-scale Linux virtualization projects -- and while they require special custom kernels, patches, and software, the first steps toward OS-level virtualization have been implemented in the Linux kernel.
The Linux community is heading for a clash between three disparate groups with very different goals and agendas. We've already seen some light skirmishes between them already. Sometimes these groups will align for the purposes of advancing their own views, but for the most part, these three groups will destroy Linux as we know it.
I have seen it, touched it, and played with it. The final industrial design prototype for the XO, the device that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Initiative is going to start shipping to countries across the world this summer. AMD hosted a luncheon on Monday to give the press an update on the project, and to unveil the completed design.
It was while watching fellow Linux users having to shutdown their laptops in between talks at open source conferences some years ago that Matthew Garrett, now head of the Ubuntu laptop team, was initially alerted to power management issues in Linux systems. Aside from working on improving hardware driver issues, Cambridge, U.K.-based Garrett has also worked extensively in Linux development. Garrett speaks with Liz Tay about working in the open source community, Debian, Ubuntu, and linux.conf.au.
I have installed Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 and started installing all the programs I need. There are now several add-ons and themes that don't work with Firefox 1.5, so I decided to upgrade Firefox. Months ago I wrote about how stupid it was that Ubuntu 6.06 didn't have any packages for Firefox 2 in the repositories. The official line from Ubuntu is to upgrade from Dapper to Edgy.
Tab Effect is a Firefox extension that provides transitional effect (similar to Xgl) when switching the tabs (Check the screenshot). It’s a cool idea and could open the door for the development of more 3D effects in the browser.
Conventional wisdom says that BitTorrent achieves superior download performance over competing peer-to-peer (P2P) systems because the protocol discourages those who download without uploading in turn, creating an environment where all participants act fairly. A University of Washington (UW) research paper says otherwise, and its authors have a BitTorrent client to prove it.
The odds are good that the LAMP stack is running somewhere inside your company. The acronym refers to the foundational foursome of the open-source movement: the Linux operating system, Apache Web server, MySQL database and, collectively, the Perl, PHP and Python programming languages.
Legends is an online multiplayer game with a strong emphasis on teamwork. Similar in style to the game Tribes. Legends is available for both Windows and Linux.
Dell's love affair with Linux is a clandestine affair these days, conducted in secret, away from disapproving eyes. But now the pair have been spotted in China.
There are a lot of music players available for Linux. If most of them were junk it would be easy to choose one to use regularly, but that's not the case. There are many good quality players, but they all have different features. This article is meant to assist you in choosing the one that's right for you. Try different ones to see which you like best.
Below is the table of contents for a transcript I just put online of a 2006 talk by Richard Stallman on "Free Software and the Future of Freedom".
This article is about resizing ext3 partitions without losing data. It shows how to shrink and enlarge existing ext3 partitions and how to merge two ext3 partitions. This can be quite useful if you do not use LVM and you realize that your existing partitioning does not meet your actual needs anymore.
We all know Microsoft views Linux as a serious threat and will do just about anything to discourage its use. But why would application vendors who actually face competition from Microsoft help it out in this regard? That's what one reader was wondering after discovering that his customers could no longer use a Linux server with their favorite accounting packages.
At this week's Consumer Electronics Show, Nokia introduced the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, the successor to the Nokia 770. The N800 is more than a beefed-up 770, as it adds a few features not available on the first device. I had a chance to spend about an hour with Nokia's N800 team and get a feel for how the $399/€399 N800 stacks up against its predecessor yesterday at CES and it looks promising.
VICTIMS of natural disasters will be the first to say that the aftermath of a major flood, earthquake or landslide is a disaster in itself. There is the extreme difficulty of finding the missing and recovering the dead. The victims of the landslide that buried Barangay Guinsaugon in St. Bernard, Southern Leyte, however, had a relatively easier time dealing with their crisis. This is due to the cooperation between IBM Philippines and the National Disaster Coordinating Council.
The Fedora Linux project, which is sponsored by Red Hat Inc and provides the core code for its Linux distributions, is set for a reorganization that will unite its Core and Extras package efforts.
