Have you ever wondered what would have happened if all the important data has been stolen from your mobile PC? For example the information about the confidential project of your company you have been working on for the last 2 years… A horrifying vision, isn’t it? Well, if you don’t want to let it come true, please consider encrypting your home drive. Here is how to do this.
Adobe Systems created a media tsunami earlier this month when it released its Creative Suite 3, a two-year project designed to roll all the company's formidable software packages for creative types into an integrated monolith. Needless to say, since the package costs more than US$1,000, it isn't something for tinkerers.
iKog is a text-based to-do manager that can help you to keep tabs on your tasks from the command line. Although it lacks all the bells and whistles of a full-blown GUI task manager, it's one of those tools that make a virtue of doing a limited range of tasks well.
With all the fuss going on about Ubuntu I thought why not give it a try!
When the Firefox web browser was launched in 2004, the then head of Microsoft Australia Steve Vamos was quoted as saying he did not believe it would pose a real threat to Internet Explorer's market share.
He said the additional features Firefox offered, such as the ability to view multiple web pages within "tabs" in a single browser window, were not necessarily what consumers wanted.
The past week has been filled with speculation and rumour after it was announced that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) would now cost US$175 instead of the originally quoted US$100. And to add fuel to the fire it was also reported widely in the press that the OLPC was now capable of running Windows.
Forrester just issued an insightful report on the increasing adoption of open source in the enterprise. The verdict? Open source is everywhere, and taking an ever-increasing piece of the enterprise pie:
A snapshot survey organised by Kable and sponsored by Red Hat shows that just over a third of respondents are actually using open source, and close to another third are giving it consideration in their plans for the future.
This tutorial shows how to install the free VMware Server on an Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system.
Right in the middle of a busy day for Ubuntu, basking in the success of the Dell-Canonical announcement that Dell will sell computers with Ubuntu pre-installed, came another development for the Ubuntu community: it seems some posts on the Ubuntu Planet mysteriously disappeared.
Every now and then we need to see the differences between two files. You forgot exactly what you changed in that Perl script, or you’d like to check what changes the intern made in Apache’s configuration, et cetera.
Leading Linux distributors Red Hat and Novell's SUSE have welcomed the news that Dell is going to prebundle Ubuntu Linux on certain consumer machines, saying the move is good for society, customers and the industry.
If financial backing is any indicator, open-source companies are hot these days. In the past year, Linux Networx raised $37 million, Zend Technologies hauled in $20 million, and MontaVista scored $21 million. For those keeping an eye on exit strategies, last summer saw JBoss acquired by Red Hat for a cool $350 million.
Jon Parshall, chief operating officer for CodeWeavers, a leading developer of Wine, which allows users to run Windows applications without Windows, recently suffered two weeks of mind-numbing agony and extraordinary urethral discomfort as a result of at least one or possibly more kidney stones. The cause: Windows.
When you're dealing with multiple drives, both fixed and removable, it can get hard to remember which is which. Remembering to mount /dev/sda1 in one place and /dev/sdc5 in another. The solution to this problem is to use labels instead of partition names when referring to them, and here we'll show how that can be done.
There are two things you need to do to start using labels:
The Fairfax County School District in Virginia, with more than 200 schools and 164,000 students, this week announced it will begin upgrading its legacy network provisioning and password management system with Novell's Identity Manager.
Jesse Keating announced on the Fedora Maintainers list that the merge of Fedora Core and Fedora Extras into one repository will take place this Wednesday.
A Christchurch software developer has been charged with relieving the Niue government of its open source systems and replacing them with a Microsoft-based solution after the island encountered ongoing service and support issues.
In response to "overwhelming" customer demand, Dell will be selling some consumer models of its PCs with Ubuntu pre-installed. This is fantastic for Ubuntu, of course, but it's not necessarily bad for Novell and Red Hat.
First off, let's look at this in a larger context than SUSE vs. Red Hat vs. Ubuntu. As Steven Vaughan-Nichols writes in eWeek.
