The prevailing wisdom about Linux on the desktop runs something like this: "I'll believe Linux is ready for the desktop as soon as you can give me a Linux distribution that even my grandmother can run."
Are open source security tools really as secure as those available for sale?
Production-quality XenSource virtualisation is the main selling point here, with optional clustering and storage virtualisation to go with it. But there's a lot more besides, making the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux a compelling solution for businesses of all sizes.
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to install 2007.1 on a HP TX1120 laptop (a tablet).
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to The Netherlands to talk to another developer of the KDE-PIM realm. Saving both your hands and your email frustrations - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Tom Albers.
A SHORT INTRO
Age: Early thirties
Located in: Culemborg, that's just south of Utrecht, which is in the middle of The Netherlands.
Hitting the web this morning was Fedora 7 Test 4, which of course I have been waiting to load up on some non-production machines since I hadn't updated against Rawhide in about two weeks. However, I have become to feel that Fedora is loosing some of its charm. Having been a Fedora user since the beginning, I have always been enticed by the latest Fedora releases whether it be stable or not.
A project that aims to deliver low-priced laptops with string pulleys to the world's poorest children may have a new market: U.S. schools.
The nonprofit "One Laptop per Child" project said on Thursday it might sell versions of its kid-friendly laptops in the United States, reversing its previous position of only distributing them to the poorest nations.
Have Michael Dell and Mark Shuttleworth come to some kind of understanding that will see
machines out on the shelves soon with Ubuntu installed?
I will admit right away that I have not been all that hip to the Mandriva side of the fence these days, especially regarding PCLinuxOS. For myself, I have been happy with Ubuntu and for others looking at expanding into an addition OS, I have been pushing Linux Mint. Well, after looking at PCLinuxOS from head to toe, I have some new insights that I would like to share.
After making a lot of progress with Mandriva Linux 2007, I thought perhaps Mandriva had turned over a new leaf, and was using that release as a starting point for an overall better quality operating environment. I was totally wrong.
The following are just some impressions and events during my installation of Ubuntu “Fiesty Fawn” 7.04 on my Desktop. The aim is not to be thorough, but to just give a sample perspective of what an installer might face while installing the new (and nice) distro.
I had lunch with a friend today that is making me reconsider some of my previous comments on Oracle's Unbreakable Linux moves. I still think the company went about it in the wrong way, but it makes more sense to me now.
What If Oracle's move against Red Hat was not about Red Hat at all? What if it was in response to the Microsoft threat?
Tuxmachines.org has been a popular haunt of mine for some time and it's been one of the key catalysts in propelling Seopher.com into view. So it only seemed right to thank srlinuxx personally and find out a little bit more about the leader of this popular site...
When and why did you decide to start Tuxmachines.org?
The open source movement, whose efforts I regularly monitor, is a sometimes bemusing, sometimes bewildering, but almost always estimable mix of pragmatism and "pipe dreaming". Graphics is, along with Wi-Fi, a common sticking point for folks interested in garnering robust hardware support within their chosen operating system and applications.
Finally, the time has come. I’ve been looking high and low for a stable, easy to install, usable and good looking dock for ubuntu. My search has ended (for the time being) with AWN.
A Brief Retrospective
Today, we interviewed Quinn Storm, the initiator of the Beryl project.
Many are resisting upgrading to Windows Vista. Reasons range from performance issues to the general perception of few, if any, value added features. Unfortunately, many Windows users are being forced into Vista by large OEMs such as Dell. By the end of December, XP will no longer be an option when purchasing a new PC.
E-mail is the most popular application on the Internet today. Closelyfollowed by search. This article aims to take a high level view of thevarious components that go into making e-mail work for you.
Linspire has published the release schedules for its two Linux distributions -- Linspire and Freespire -- and the overhaul of its CNR (click-and-run) software update system to support multiple Linux distributions, including Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE, and Ubuntu.
