Assessing the true cost of One Laptop Per Child

Filed under
Misc

While Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has garnered a tremendous amount of support worldwide, it has also become a lightning rod for critics who have questioned the viability of its long-term success and impact. As the OLPC receives its first shipment of laptops and continues to formalize agreements with developing countries, the cost of individual laptops hover at about $130. Critics, however, suggest that the "true cost" may be several times that amount.

ZenWalk 4.0: Great Taste, Less Volkerding

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

I do not like Slackware. Let me get that out right now. This should be obvious to anyone who's read my rants or had the misfortune to mistake my Slackware 11 rant for a real review and decided to subsequently question my IQ and parentage on the comments section of OSNews. Zenwalk is a derivative of Slackware, so it's starting out the game with two strikes against it. However it has been several versions since I last looked at this distro (2.4). Let's see if it can make up for its parent.

Filed under
Hardware

Over the years, I have accumulated a couple of hard disks which I salvaged from my old computers. I have a Seagate 12 GB hard disk, a Samsung 2.1 GB hard disk apart from another Seagate 20 GB hard disk. In fact, these were just lying around with out being put to any use and recently I decided to add one of them to my present computer.

Interview with Fred Trotter: the Medsphere saga

Filed under
Interviews

Recently Medsphere, supposedly an “Open Source” Medical Software Company, has sued its founders Scott and Steve Shreeve. Why? Medsphere claims that the Shreeves illegally released Medsphere software to Sourceforge. An “Open Source” Software company is suing its founders for releasing code under a free license... that’s a bit like Ford suing its employees for making cars.

OS X is more appealing to enterprises as a desktop operating system than ever before and although it is unlikely to take market share away from Windows, the Mac could reduce the number of Linux-based desktops, according to research group Gartner.

Filed under

After trying out openSUSE 10.2 last night @home on a separate partition and spending some time, around couple of hours, I decided to take a bold decision - to install it as my primary OS, replacing the good old SUSE 10.1.

GNU/Linux: anywhere and everywhere

Filed under
Linux

There are many things about GNU/Linux which merit complaint. But it is extremely doubtful whether anyone can find anything to complain about with regards to the versatile nature of the operating system. Despite this flexibility, it's not often that one hears of the operating system being used in secure facilities by government organisations. Hence I was pleasantly surprised to hear that a locked-down version of the Knoppix distribution is being used at a remand centre close to Melbourne.

The Linux Liability Problem

Linux

The greatest differentiator between OS vendors is no longer a question of features, function, performance, customer support, security, reliability or any feature of the product itself. The future of computing may depend on the lawyers.

Netrunner's Unique Blackbird Soars to New Heights

Blackbird, Netrunner's version 19.01 release, hit the download servers on Jan. 14, and this distro deserves to be considered bleeding-edge. Netrunner is a step ahead of other KDE distros, thanks to its solid integration of classic KDE desktop performance with Web-based applications and cloud services. That said, if you aren't fondness of the K Desktop, Netrunner may leave you wanting more desktop simplicity. For that you must look elsewhere. KDE is the only desktop available from the Germany-based Blue Systems development team. Blackbird is based on Debian's "Testing" branch. Its developer brings some aggressive updates to the distro that propel it ahead of other distros' regular development cycles. The main updates include KDE Plasma 5.14.3, KDE Frameworks 5.51, KDE Applications 18.08 and Qt 5.11.3 for its essential security updates. Linux Kernel 4.19, Firefox Quantum 64.0 and Thunderbird 60.3 push the envelope as well. One of the more noticeable new features in Blackbird is its new Netrunner Black theme. This theme is based on a dark-toned contrasting visual. It uses the Kvantum theme engine, plus the Alpha-Black Plasma theme, to produce a more 3D-looking design. Read more
