In geek speak; Knoppix is a Linux Live CD. That means it runs the Linux operating system directly from the CD, bypassing the hard drive making it a useful very useful tool.
It's all over the press, and a battle will soon be joined:
Desktops need 3D.
But what kind of 3D? The term is vague, would it be isometric 3D, Z-buffered vector 3D used to display 2D elements - as we can see in games -, or something hopefully more profound?
Apparently, the Dutch have a verb that means "to use the Internet", and the 2nd line translates as "use the Internet wirelessly ... as if at home" - and the green heading in the right-most column refers to the hotel where we were staying. Guess what that means? They have a hot spot - and Knoppix found it without my even asking!
COR Entertainment announces the release of Alien Arena 2006: Uranium Edition! This new version includes a great number of enhancements and bugfixes.
Most people don't really get how important unices are. While most of them use a Windows™ version on their home computers, they are passive *NIX users as well (at least the vast majority of them).
Getting wireless networking working with the ndiswrapper driver is fairly straightfoward if your card has an associated Windows driver. Here we'll look at getting wireless networking working for a Dell Inspiron 1300, you should be able to follow the recipe for most other wireless networking cards which are supported ndiswrapper.
A week ago, I had a chance to speak with Scott Handy, Vice President of Worldwide Linux Strategy at IBM. Mr. Handy has always struck me as one of those people really likes his job, because despite the instinctive reluctance many executives have when dealing with the press, he seems to really like to share what IBM's doing to promote Linux use.
Computer maker Lenovo will not install or support the Linux operating system on any of its PCs, including ThinkPads and a series of new notebooks, the company said this week.
The government-run Central Trust of China has mandated for the first time that all desktop computers purchased from now on must be Linux-compatible, demonstrating the government's desire to widen the nation's usage of open source software.
According to reports out of Nashville this week, Red Hat’s user summit featured a speech that characterized the open source movement as a particularly American phenomenon. Eben Moglen, a law professor at Columbia University, was responding to the “communist” tag Microsoft chairman Bill Gates had applied to the Linux community.
OpenOffice.org responded Friday to claims in the media that the first virus had been discovered for the open source productivity suite. The group said that macro viruses are possible in any program that supports the feature.
With all the Ubuntu excitement passed few days it occurred to me that being a KDE fan moreso than gnome, perhaps Kubuntu might be more my cup of tea. When perusing the downloads it also occurred to me that 'hey I have a 64bit machine now!' So, I downloaded the Kubutu 6.06 desktop amd64 iso. Was it more appealing to a diehard KDE fan? Does 64bit programming make much difference?
I have always been skeptical of media players and music management software... using a bare minimum player like XMMS to play my digital music. So, when a friend came to me and said "try amaroK!", I said, "Yeah, right!"
I admit it. I'm HUGE fan of Ubuntu Linux for the Desktop. So with great pleasure, I have put together a guide to help everyone easily create a dual-boot PC running both Ubuntu and Windows XP in celebration of Ubuntu's official Dapper Drake release. Don't worry... I'm laying the instructions out in such a way that most Windows users who've ever tinkered with their PC will find it a piece of cake.
Creator Michael "STIBS" Stibane calls STX Linux "a desktop Linux distribution especially targeted to older hardware." I tested version 1.0 of the Slackware 10.2-based distro on an old laptop with a 300MHz Celeron processor, 80MB of RAM, and a 4GB hard disk. I found this young distro for old hardware has promise.
