Caitlyn Martin: In recent comments to my review of Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO keyfitter wrote: "There is a reason why they are using Win 98 in 2007. I think it’s called, being cheap!." I wonder if these people realize they can buy a brand new computer for $139.
thelinuxmovement: So maybe a week or so ago I posted about the Awn theme manager, which was still in early stages but was nice. Well it has made considerable progress, and is now not only a theme manager but pretty much all the preferences, in Awn.
ZDNet: There's been much fanfare about Linux replacing Windows on desktops but we've yet to see any major adoptions take place -- this may have something to do with the fact that in Australia, none of the major PC manufacturers have offered Linux as a pre-installed option.
daniel robbins: Well, for the past several days I've been pretty pumped about the future of Gentoo. There seems to be a great interest among the larger Gentoo community.
Serdar Yegulalp: I am growing infernally curious about what the end-of-the-year sales figures for Dell’s Ubuntu machines will be. What if Linux has its big day in the sun, and simply doesn’t achieve more than a small percentage of the market?
Expect is an indispensable tool for efficient system and network management, and it's also widely misunderstood. In this article, find out the benefits Expect provides in common use cases.
pcmech.com: As a bit of a follow-up to my recent editorial about the different operating systems battling it out, a few readers made comments about Ubuntu and Windows and, essentially, that I was giving Windows a little too much credit. So, I thought I would write another one here specifically to address the issue of Linux actually replacing Windows. Can it?
element14: MySpace is a popular social networking web site and one of the most visited sites in the world. In May of 2006, MySpace? released their own proprietary instant messaging program, MySpaceIM. The official client is in beta but only runs on Windows.
zdnet blogs: The OpenBSD team has won an award for the most spectacular mishandling of a critical security vulnerability. Here’s why:
Arun's Blog: Startforce is a web based operating system. I wanted to give it a try. I clicked on the new user and entered the username and password. Once I entered those information I was greeted with a desktop similar to Windows XP or one of the Linux OS.
linux.com: *nix-style is a GNOME graphical interface for configuration options in your system or current user account. It makes no attempt to be comprehensive, nor does it focus on options that are available from the desktop menus or GNOME system utilities. Instead, it concentrates on lesser-known configuration options, such as customizing the bash prompt or suppressing the initial splash screen in GNOME.
latenightpc.com: I’ve had my Asterisk PBX offline for a while now for no good reason, so I decided I’d upgrade and put the latest Asterisk on my new machine. Today I want to revisit some of the work I did getting Asterisk 1.2 working and see what I have to do to get Asterisk 1.4 running. It’s apparently not that different.
computerworld: In the race to be the first "iPhone killer," the most unlikely but perhaps most intriguing candidate is based on a new Linux platform with the peculiar name OpenMoko.
kernelTRAP: "Do you pine for the nice days of minix-1.1, when men were men and wrote their own device drivers?" began the October 5th, 1991 announcement for Linux kernel version 0.02 on the comp.os.minix newsgroup. In the release notes, Linus Torvalds continued, "as I mentioned a month(?) ago, I'm working on a free version of a minix-lookalike for AT-386 computers. It has finally reached the stage where it's even usable (though may not be depending on what you want), and I am willing to put out the sources for wider distribution."
linux devcenter: Linux has come a long way in the last 10 years. At that time, if you were looking through the main audio and music applications on other operating systems, you would have struggled to find comparable, fully developed, apps on Linux. Nowadays, while no one would say the job was done, they could point to an assortment of high-quality applications that are getting real jobs done.
One of the first questions Linux users often ask, after installing their distro of choice, is “How do I install Nvidia drivers?” Although the process has been hit and miss in the past, one of the best solutions that I have come across is Envy for the Ubuntu distribution.
