If Europe’s top footballing nations were to compete in a World Cup of IT security, host nation Germany would be the clear winner, according to research from security firm McAfee.
Three months ago, we had a chat with Novell Linux evangelist Andreas Girardet who waxed lyrical about his company's desktop product SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLED) version 10. This was to be the Windows killer, the desktop Linux to end all desktop Linux products, the one that would make 2006 the year of the Linux desktop. However, we were expecting it by the end of June and it seems to be a little late.
A Massachusetts Senate committee released a report Thursday criticizing the state's Information Technology Division (ITD), claiming that its "unilateral" plan to move all state employees to use software that reads and writes files in the OpenDocument format was poorly planned, ignored the needs of handicapped workers and violated state law.
French lawmakers approved a copyright law on Friday, in a move that could have profound consequences for online music stores, open-source programmers, desktop Linux users and P2P (peer-to-peer) filesharers.
The Bourne Again Shell's history mechanism, a feature adapted from the C Shell, maintains a list of recently issued command lines, also called events, providing a quick way to reexecute any of the events in the list. It can prove helpful when you have made a mistake and are not sure what you did, or when you want to keep a record of a procedure that involved a series of commands.
darkstat is a network statistics gatherer.
Effectively, it's a packet sniffer which runs as a background process on a cable/DSL router, gathers all sorts of useless but interesting statistics,and serves them over HTTP.
I have found that many Xgl-knowledgeable people are having trouble setting up Desktop Effects because they try to do the same setup as they used on early SLED10 betas and on SUSE Linux 10.1 (or Ubuntu, or Gentoo, or…) Ironic that people are messing up because they’re too experienced, methinks. They go about it the hard way.
The other day on the way home from work, between the streetcar and the bus, I spent a couple of minutes at the train station bookstore, and picked up a magazine with a DVD containing 10 new "Linux-PCs". Hmmmm...
AN ASTEROID half a mile across will have a close encounter with the Earth in the early hours of tomorrow morning when it buzzes past our planet at the same distance as the Moon's orbit.
I installed Ubuntu on my Thinkpad, 32-Kubuntu on one workstation, and Kubuntu AMD 64 on another. The second two are going the way of the dodo. What, you say, how can I be so mean to the darlingest Linux distribution of all? Easy. It started it.
The open source paradigm has changed the software market, but open source itself is becoming so established that it will be boring in five years, according to panellists at a recent conference held at the Computer History Museum, in California, last month.
If you look at distrowatch you'll probably be amazed at how popular Damn Small Linux has become. It is number 6 in this year's page hits ranking and only preceded by Ubuntu, SUSE, Mandriva, Fedora and Mepis! In fact it has gathered more attention than famous distributions such as Debian, Knoppix, Gentoo, Slackware or PCLinuxOS. As version 3.0.1 was released a few days ago, I decided to give it a look.
This staff member of ourtweaks.com is risking a lot by telling you the truth about Ubuntu Dapper Drake. I'll bet you are wondering why I would try to hurt Ubuntu. Well, the answer is simple: The Ubuntu fan base just love to tell blatant lies about Ubuntu.
Have you ever wanted to take a video of your sleek desktop, with your customised icons, window manager, GKrellM, and whatnot? Or make a video of cool XGL effects? Or a video tutorial to teach a few friends how to use a certain application? If you have, then this tutorial is for you.
The sound in GNU/Linux might be still considered as a mess, or based on technologies that are duplicating each other. Fact is that the average Joe should not be bothered by WHY the sound doesn't work with a particular application, while it works with all the others. However, aoss may come to the rescue.

Some of us just like to do it ourselves. There's something uniquely satisfying about selecting every component in a system. It allows you to balance the exact price/performance trade-off that suits you best. Start with the ultimate AMD64 motherboard and build on it to create a masterpiece of your own.
Long before the summer thriller Snakes on a Plane slithers into theaters in July, potentially venomous fans started rattling. Based in part on the Internet comments, director David R. Ellis re-shot scenes.
