I believe that, in the same way that the right tool should be used for the job, the right OS (Operating System) should be used for the job. There is no such thing as “the best Operating System” (although, if there were, I’d like to think it was Linux ), but there is a “most suitable Operating System for a certain job.”
We all know that the GIMP is more or less the de-facto standard for image editing in Linux, where Adobe Photoshop is the standard on the Mac and Windows (and some Linux boxes using Crossover Office) The question is the following: Does GIMP have what it takes to dethrone Adobe Photoshop as the standard?
Your browser does a good job of fetching web documents and displaying them, but there are times when you need an extra strength download manager to get those tougher HTTP jobs done.
Ubuntu is making some people antsy. Recall that this distro is a clever repackaging of Debian designed to make Linux simpler for the average person to use while still remaining free and fully open source (unlike some other Debian-based consumer distributions such as Linspire or Xandros). What's wrong with that, you say?
This howto will show you howto store your users in LDAP and authenticate some of the services against it. I will not show howto install particular packages, as it is distribution/system dependant.

Eric S. Raymond is one of the founders of open-source, and a good deal of Linux's early popularity came from his non-stop beating of the drum for the free software operating system. Then, a few years ago, he bowed out of the limelight to live his own life. Recently, however, Raymond shows signs of once more playing a bigger role in open-source circles.
5,478. This, today, is a number of great significance to the Linux community. It represents the exact number of days that Linux has officially been in existence. For it was 15 years ago today that Linus Torvalds first posted his message to the comp.os.minix newsgroup, asking for feedback on this nifty little OS that he hoped might one day support some of the 386 and 486 AT clones that were cutting edge PC technology in 1991.
I have been in IT for over 12 years now. On the server side, I have worked with NT 3.51, 4.0, 2000 and 2003 Server. On the other side of the coin is Unix / Linux. There have been prophecies for years that Linux is going to be the widely-used alternative to Windows on the desktop. The problem is that it has always been so complicated to get working. But times, they are a changin'.

K3b 1.0 is in sight and with it I would like to introduce a new default theme. Not because I don't like the current ones, but I just want K3b 1.0 to look different so that people will see the difference, not only feel it.
