When the folks from Mozilla prepared to launch their open-source Firefox 1.0 browser two years ago, their hope was to gain enough market share to compel Web sites to adopt open standards--rather than standardizing on Microsoft's proprietary Internet Explorer browser technology. Job done.
It's party time. Today we celebrate the tenth birthday of KDE. It all started with the famous post by Matthias Ettrich on October 14th 1996 calling for programmers to create a piece of free software he called KDE. I digged up the oldest screenshot of a program I worked on that I could find, a KOrganizer version from 1998, this was just before KDE 1.0.
The GP2X--which stands for 'Game Park Times Two'--was first released in the UK this year as an alternative portable that runs on Linux. The portable underdog reports surge in interest in the UK and first big-budget game release; sales expected to reach 50,000 by Christmas.
There's been quite a few postings and articles on new users and Linux flourishing during the past year. The reason I believe this to be is that desktop Linux is approaching or has arrived at the tipping point where it can gain mainstream adoption. People are seeing Linux as a viable alternative to Microsoft.
The Firefox web browser has come a long way since the project was announced as a fork from the open-sourced Mozilla project. The Mozilla organization has set up a feature brainstorming web site that allows everyone to enter their favorite wish lists for the open source browser.
As a long-time fan of SuSE Linux, I somehow managed to miss the Ubuntu bandwagon. Now I know what I was missing. I recently replaced SuSE 10.1 with Ubuntu 6.06, also known as Dapper Drake, on my main PC in a matter of minutes, and am now enjoying a clean, feature-rich computing environment that is easy to configure and just works.
The arrest of Hans Reiser in connection with the murder of his estranged wife is having a ripple effect on the technology world. Because Reiser is the backbone of Namesys, the software's parent company, many wonder what his arrest will mean for the software's future.
It's important not to get too carried away with "the latest tech trend." Technology changes more rapidly than any other sector, and this year's "must have" technology is quickly made obsolete, or so it seems. However, every so often something significant comes along that truly changes the game. Mainframes yielded to client/server, which in turn was replaced by the Web as the dominant computing paradigm. I believe Linux and Open Source more broadly represent a similar game-changing force.
Operating systems for Christians? Sound silly? It may sound silly but it's true. Recently, two versions of Linux have come out geared towards the Christian faith. One is called Ubuntu Christian Edition and the other is Ichthux.
Firefox 2.0 is almost here, and Microsoft is expected to start pushing out Internet Explorer 7 to users via the Windows Automatic Update software-distribution mechanism by year's end. In short, the browser wars are about to begin again.
It's Friday the 13th, and for some of us in the Western world it's a day where we walk a little more carefully. I enjoy delving into mysteries of the universe around us. The most prominent example of this is the GPL 2 vs. 3 debate, which seems to have some people convinced that it's the End of Linux kernel as We Know It.
Parsing is one of the CDT's most crucial functions, but because of its complexity, parsing is also one of its least-understood aspects. This article introduces the parsing process used by the Eclipse C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT). This will help you Get a handle on one of the C/C++ Development Tooling's most crucial functions: the parsing process -- for error detection, indexing, and code-completion
I have now officially entered my second decade using Linux and free/open source software in a meaningful way. I began dabbling with Linux as early as 1995, but in June of 1996, I began using it for real when I created my first Web site. What's different these days from things 10 years ago?
Tools like the GIMP and similar graphical applications are great for modifying and manipulating images. Sometimes, however, they can be overkill for little things that need to be done, such as converting file types or resizing images. As well, a graphical tool can be time consuming and difficult to script, unlike CLI tools.
Shares of Red Hat Inc., the largest distributor of the Linux operating system, tumbled more than 7 percent Friday after a Wall Street analyst suggested that Oracle Corp. may soon introduce its own Linux products.
Though delayed for a while and later to market than most Mandriva fans would probably prefer, the new Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack Edition is finally here, nearly a year after the previous release.
After covering the basics of Yum in my first article, let’s move on to the second part. In this article I’d like to cover some things about keeping your system up to date with Yum on a CentOS 4 system.
Danger from the Deep (aka dangerdeep) is an Free/Open Source World War II german uboat simulation. This release brings an massive number of new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
So you want to find out what your linux system is doing? There are a few ways you can go about doing this. Actually, there are a ton of ways, but we’re going to look at a few of them. Some of them are graphical and pretty and some are CLI but all of them are useful.
So yesterday I tryed Beryl on Ubuntu Dapper, even though Beryl is only v.0.1 I must say it seems pretty stable and works great on my laptop... I will, in this post make a guide to how I got it all working..
