The Internet was buzzing these days about the recent Novell-Microsoft agreement. Under an unprecedented deal, Microsoft has agreed to offer sales support for SUSE Linux and start working on interoperability. Let's see what Novell has to say about this agreement as Justin Steinman, Director of Marketing for Linux & Open Platform Solutions for Novell, answers some questions on LinuxInterviews.com.

Thunderbird is so straightforward in use that most users never touch its more-advanced features. But, even if you don't consider yourself a Thunderbird power user, you might want to take a closer look at the tools it has to offer. Chances are you can dramatically improve your e-mailing habits.
Ubuntu has a program installation problem. To be fair, nearly all Linux distributions have the same issue, but I'll pick on Ubuntu because its popular and is the choice for many users switching from Windows. The problem I am referring to is the missing menu link after many graphical apps are installed.
Linux powers more than 75 percent of the world's most powerful computers, according to data released yesterday in the annual "Top 500" report. Intel's Pentium 4 Xeon proved the most popular processor, followed by dual-core Opteron and EM64T (Itanium) Xeons in a dead heat for second. A PowerPC-based machine once again took top honors, however.
This month's tasty installment explores the world of Roll-Your-Own Linuxes. Why would you want to assemble your own customized Linux image? Well, why not? For one thing, it's just plain fun.
NFS has traditionally been a semi-robust method of sharing files between Unix-based computers. The IETF has been working on NFSv4 since early 2000, and implementations have finally started springing up everywhere. The Linux kernel team has focused its efforts in NFSv4, providing its least buggy NFS implementation yet. If that alone isn't reason enough to start using v4, read on.
PC-BSD has intrigued me in the past. In the past I have been very impressed at how well it worked, and more impressed by how it doesn't sacrifice the power of FreeBSD in order to do it. Let's see how this version pans out.
I am truly amazed at some of the fanatical responses to any indication that a particular operating system is below par. It seems that when someone is confronted with a statement like your operating system is no good because..... the rest just doesn't get heard.
The development of KDE 4 keeps going these days. One milestone achieved these days was a working telepathy plugin in kopete. Michaël Larouche showed that it can already be used for text conversation.
A new study sanctioned by Mozilla declares Firefox 2 as a big winner over Microsoft's IE 7 in the battle to block ID theft scam sites, but weaknesses in both browsers confirm that the battle against phishing has only just begun.
Casual Ubuntu users may have registered surprise when they first booted the distribution's Edgy Eft release this past October. Back at the beginning of the Edgy development cycle, much was made of the formation of a new, dedicated Art Team to develop a fresh look for the backgrounds and splash screens of the startup process. But when Edgy hit the shelves, the artwork was scarcely different from that of its predecessor, Dapper Drake.
Red Hat shares have come scratching back from their worst levels following the twin announcements that Oracle plans to offer maintenance service to Red Hat Linux users while Microsoft has teamed up with Novell to offer ways for companies to run both Windows and Novell’s Suse Linux on the same boxes.
Finity Flight II is a multiplatform high flying adventure tale in the form of a top-down shooter. In each weekly episode you will find new challenges to hone your skills on and a new portion of the on-going story:
The open-source Java effort Apache Harmony has graduated to a full-fledged Apache project. Apache Harmony, started last year, is creating an open-source version of Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE), software for making Java programs on PCs.
During my visit to India last month, I promised myself that I would accomplish one important task. I would do everything in my power to eliminate the tech support role that I was playing to my parents. You see, my parents had inherited (ah, sweet pun) a desktop computer from me and in my absence had taken the help of local young men who gleefully installed Microsoft Windows software (pirated, of course).

In the past few weeks, Microsoft and Mozilla both released the latest versions of their Web browsers, Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.0, respectively. The new IE is a gigantic (and much needed) upgrade from its predecessor, while almost all of IE's improvements were aimed to provide features that have already been included in Firefox for quite some time. Being an open-source program, one of Firefox's biggest advantages over the competition, Firefox supports "extensions." Here's a list of my 10 favorite extensions:
Red Hat today announced that the city of Vienna has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform of choice for its servers. Austria’s capital is using the operating system for both mission-critical applications such as database servers and other systems including file servers.
If you’ve got a machine that boots via grub and you’d like to hide the menu when it’s booting up there’s a simple little edit you can do to accomplish this.
Learning UNIX is a seemingly daunting task, there are thousands of commands out there, each with hundreds of options. But in reality you only need to know a few of them.

FreeLinuxEmail, an IMAP email and Net file storage service developed by Messaging Engine of Melbourne, Australia, provides desktop Linux users a free server-based email and file storage service that works with both web-based and client-based email. IMAP is a superior email protocol over POP systems offered by most free email services.
