The free software community has two independent projects working toward the implementation of a free Flash player: Gnash and swfdec. There has been some talk recently about these two projects, their goals, their accomplishments, and whether it makes sense to have them both.

GNU Screen or screen in short is something I discovered late in my UNIX romance. Now that I have got hooked to it there is no going back. One of the first packages I install on any linux distro is this marvelous creation. Let us take a dekko at this and see what makes it so versatile.
Ironically for Microsoft, Vista is just the shot in the arm that desktop systems with open-source operating systems needed to boost their sales. At least that's what solution providers seem to think.
The suspense is over for Google Summer of Code (SoC) 2007 hopefuls. The list is out and Google has accepted 900 applications from a pool of about 6,200.
I NOW HAVE NEARLY one hundred 100 flame-mails about PCLinuxOS, most of them questioning my parentage, one or two of them trying to explain what happened, most of the writers sort of hinting they are part of the distro team.
As a GNU/Linux user and developer I rarely get to see how the other half lives. That is, Windows users. So, during my week off work, I had two goals: complete the recording of a music project I’d been working on, and finish as many outstanding (non-Linux-centric) projects as possible... using only Windows.
Here's a comprehensive and idiot-proof guide for utilizing NdisWrapper extracted from Beginning Ubuntu Linux, Second Edition. The guide is part of Chapter 8, which provides a full guide to hardware configuration under Ubuntu.
I've been a VMware Player user since it was first released, but I recently decided to switch to VMware Server when I found out that it supports dual processors and snapshots. To my dismay I frequently experienced mouse lag, slow graphics, and keyboard sticking. Switching back to VMware Player resolved my issues and was noticeably faster.
Mark Ashworth, one of the original founders of Linuxfest Northwest, said the conference got its start in 1998 when a small group of people invited a couple of local Unix gurus to discuss forming what became the Bellingham Linux Users Group. "We held our second meeting at Bellingham Technical College (BTC) a month later."
Hands up all PC users who have a wireless mouse and keyboard?
We've had computers powerful enough to be effortlessly useful for ages now. In fact, there is probably one in your attic. Even a 10-year-old PC will work perfectly well as a well-connected typewriter, which is all that most people want or need.
In the usual announcement to the Ubuntu developer list Ubuntu founder Mark Suttleworth this morning announced the name of the next Ubuntu release plus one, due out in October 2007: Gutsy Gibbon.
Gutsy will follow Feisty Fawn due for release on April 19.
But, more interestingly, Shuttleworth also talked of a new ultra-free version of Ubuntu that can be expected alongside Gutsy Gibbon.
Today security is one of the key aspects in our daily life - sometimes conscious, sometimes unconscious. Security has many aspects and one of them is computer security or security of your or your business' computer data. In this tutorial I will show how to encrypt a whole disk drive using (X)Ubuntu Feisty, dm-crypt, and LUKS. The article also contains some legal considerations.
Its true. Linux lovers love to mount. Mounting things is part and parcel of a linux lovers life. They mount everything. Now before you get the wrong idea I wish to specify that I am talking about the mount command that is part of linux based systems.
Ubuntu Feisty Fawn has improves in graphics and user friendliness, one of the tools install by default is baobab. Baobab is one of the gnome utils. As the name didn’t suggest anything, but it is a cool disk usage analyzer. As it scan your folders and present you the disk usage statistics reports in graphs. Look at the screenshot:
Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died Wednesday night in Manhattan. He was 84.
