I've been running the retail version on SUSE Linux 10.0 as my production desktop machine since early November. I like its online update facility; it's a great way to keep the system refreshed with the latest security and bug fixes, and I'm not the only one who feels this way. But I've found a few things in SUSE 10 that I'm not too fond of, and that make me start thinking about changing distros.
As chief open-source officer at Sun Microsystems, Simon Phipps has been a busy man of late, with Sun moving to open-source big pieces of its software portfolio-from its Solaris operating system to its enterprise Java software stack.
Commercial software can be costly in more ways than one. As if hefty license fees weren't bad enough, product support is limited to whatever services the vendor agrees to sell you, at a price that's tough to negotiate. So how do you break the cycle of vendor dependency? One popular choice is to explore open-source alternatives.
Riverbanks Zoo and Garden (in Columbia, South Carolina) has ten Gentoo penguins that haven't been named yet. The Zoo's administrators have decided that they are too many to be named by the staff, and call upon the general public to submit suggestions.
Maybe you're not one of the open-source zealots who downloads and maintains a Linux desktop at home, all the while thumbing your nose at Bill Gates & Co. Maybe you don't even know what open source is. But chances are you're part of the uprising. And if you're not now, you will be soon.
Following the meeting with John Degen, and his support for the idea that we have respect for the interests of fellow creators, I want to try to comment on some things said Christopher Moore on the Creators Copyright Coalition BLOG. There are two themes: unhelpful redefinitions of words, and misunderstandings about the objections some people have about collective societies.
Coverity has released the comprehensive research results on the state of quality for many of the leading open source software projects in the world. This is the first study to use source code analysis to establish a baseline metric for software quality.
A rather peculiar article at Inside Higher Ed examines a report published by IMS about open source software adoption in higher education. The article asserts that while interest in open source software is increasing, "it's not quite ready for prime time."
I used to think a simple format of a hard drive was enough to make data recovery impossible, but I was wrong. To ensure that details of your secret love affair, bank account passwords, and daily porn site visits cannot be recovered, use shred.
There appear to be no uncomplicated introductions to the subject of traffic monitoring on the internet anywhere. So here is one.
This tutorial shows how to build a multi-head, multi-user Linux box using a recent distribution of Linux and standard USB keyboards and mice. Xorg calls this arrangement a "multi-seat" system.
Weblogs are being attacked, compromised, and defaced. This sort of thing has been happening for years to other kinds of Web sites, but the attacks seem to be more frequent these days. It's not that software has become less secure, and it's probably not because potential attackers have increased in number. No, the reason that attacks are more prevalent is likely because many bloggers don't know how to secure their own Web sites. Here are several in-depth tips.
The 78th Academy Awards is in the can and who were the big winners this year? Everybody's favorite "March of the Penguins" wins best documentary for the year, as if we had any doubts. It was all down hill from there. As not one of the most exciting years in film making, the Oscars reflected and even amplified one of the most mundane years in movie history.
Martin Pfeiffer has won the competition for KOffice 2 GUI and functionality design. All entries are available under the GPL license at the results page. His entry was chosen from among the eighteen submissions because of its innovative, ground-breaking approach to workflow and document handling.
While we await the release of Microsoft Office 2007, promised to hit our shelves before the end of 2006, Yates dismisses open source rival Open Office.org 2.0 as being 10 years out of date.
If such a body had existed last year, it's possible the organization could have provided much needed support to an embattled U.S. chief information officer (CIO), Wasch said in a phone interview Thursday.
For Microsoft and other companies living off charging for the use of their applications, free software is a problem, because the idea of programs anyone can use for free is a torpedo aimed at their established business model.
SUSE 10.1 beta 6 hit the mirrors yesterday and announcements went up all over the web. Seems everyone is following development of 10.1 with great interest. This release brings lots of improvements and a new surprize or two. Overall, we are starting to see the release the 10.1 will become.
