The recent merging of two leading open source groups, OSDL and FSG, seems like good news for Linux. However, out in the Linux community, flickers of doubt were heard. Skepticism. Anxiety. Uncharitable postings on message boards.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.6, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
Savage: The Battle for Newerth, created and released by S2Games in the Summer of 2003, is a unique FPS/RTS online game. It combines first and third person combat with RTS elements such as structures, AI workers, and a team commander. On a good online server up to 64 players can easily play without any lag.

Call it Red Hat's forward spin velocity regarding Linux management tools. With competition such as Oracle offering full Red Hat support on their own products, Red Hat is now expanding and improving its Linux management footprint.
In this multi-part series, DesktopLinux.com columnist and operating system curmudgeon Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols pits Microsoft's latest wares -- Vista -- against Linux's fair haired boy -- Ubuntu -- to see how the pinnacle of commercial desktop operating systems stacks up against the free, community-developed Linux upstart.

It’s that time of year — the time when every IT pundit worth his or her salt is required to publish a New Year’s list of predictions or resolutions. So, being Linux Magazine’s equivalent of Professor Marvel (from the 1939 film classic The Wizard of Oz), who has a talent for seeing the patently obvious, I’m here to take my shot.
I wonder if there is a survey that has information on how many different distros a typical Linux user has used over that last 5 years? Of course, I mean more than just an install trial where you experiment with a distro for a few days, then wipe or replace that distro.
For me, that number is a fairly conservative two. And one of those two distros is the (grown up) child of another.
Mustang Linux, a fork of Buffalo Linux and a newcomer to the "mini" Linux distribution field, achieved a v2.3.1 release earlier this month. The lightweight distro, which can run entirely from RAM, is based on a 2.6.16 kernel and offers a choice of desktops, the project team said.
I am happy to tell you about the 2nd UbuCon, an Ubuntu user and
developer event, to take place at Google’s New York City offices on
One big trend of this decade that has not been remarked-upon enough is how many closed source or proprietary products have adopted elements of the open source business model.
China's Linux industry is slated for a 28% increase in growth through the years 2006-2010. Despite its success, there are many hurdles to overcome - mainly improving compatibility issues.
Yet another GNOME release is now available. This is our sixth
development release on our road towards GNOME 2.18.0, which will be

Apart from a KDE desktop and applications, the developers of the Pardus 2007 Linux distribution have built an entire distribution from scratch. Pardus, released last month, has its own multilingual installer, custom dependency-resolving package manager, and an INIT system that slashes boot times by several seconds. The distribution has come a long way since its first release in 2005, when it was based on Gentoo and lacked a package manager. Thanks to its custom tools, it's one of the easiest Linux distribution to run and manage.
This tutorial shows how you can back up Linux and Windows systems with BackupPC. BackupPC acts as a server and is installed on a Linux system, and from there it can connect to all Linux and Windows systems in your local network to back them up and restore them without interfering with the user's work on that system.
Linux for the Desktop is still way to geeky for the average user. I guess my best analogy is to compare Linux to DOS. Linux still seems that way to me and this needs to be modified, changed, simplified, redone, uncomplex, uncomplicated, plain, clear, ………that’s enough.
