Subject: Five Best Linux Office Tools

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The business office is where the Linux desktop should reign. Why? Linux is a reliable, stable, secure solution that would have any business user working day-in and day-out without fail. With an unheard of resistance to viruses, trojans, and worms, the office user enjoying the Linux desktop would have no concerns about down time as does the average Windows user. But what tools are there available for the usual office worker? Plenty!

Subject: The problem with Excito’s Bubba 3 server

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I really like the idea of an ARM-based, Debian-running home server, and I really like Excito’s Bubba 3. The only problem? The Bubba is $393.75 U.S. (€279.20, exchange rate calculated by Google). What can I do between those less-than-hardy plug servers for $100 and this $393 item?

Subject: This week at LWN: Has Bionic stepped over the GPL line?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Way back in the early days of Linux, shortly after Linus Torvalds switched the kernel from his own "non-commercial" license to the GPL, he also added an important clarification to the kernel's license. In the COPYING file at the top of the kernel tree since mid-1993, there has been a clear statement that Torvalds, at least, does not consider user-space programs to be derived from the kernel, and thus are not subject to the kernel's license..

Subject: Google open source guru: 'Why we ban the AGPL'

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Google open source guru Chris DiBona says that the web giant continues to ban the lightning-rod AGPL open source license within the company because doing so "saves engineering time" and because most AGPL projects are of no use to the company. The Affero GPL is designed to close the so-called "application service provider loophole" in the GPL, which lets ASPs use GPL code without distributing their changes back to the open source community. Under the AGPL, if you use code in a web service, you required to open source it.

Subject: Setting up a conference: Part I - Determining Theme, Time and Place

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I am often invited to small and medium sized Free and Open Source Software events, and I enjoy going to them. Some of these events have been taking place for almost a decade, happening every year without interruption. Others happen only one or two times, then fade from view. Some suffer a stillbirth, and never make it to the first year.

Subject: Kernel Log: First release candidate for Linux 2.6.39

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Torvalds said that he considers 2.6.39 more of a solid version with a boring amount of progress – however, with ipset, the Xen network backend, as well as many new and improved drivers, the new kernel, which is expected to be released in late May or early June, does offer numerous improvements which matter to end users.

Subject: WiFi Extension Problem Solved: DD-WRT

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

When looking for a solution to any problem, you should always follow your instincts. Linux is what I do and it rarely fails me. Linux, once again, has saved me hundreds of dollars and several headaches by being versatile, free, and powerful. This week, you’ll learn how I turned a giant lemon into a bucket of lemonade using the DD-WRT project, a never-used Linksys (Cisco) wireless router, and my Internet service provider’s router. I created an extended network for my home computer setup. By bridging the two routers, I effectively created a Home Area Network so that I could have a data center in my garage.

Subject: Spotlight on Linux: Supergamer Supreme 2.5

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Supergamer is, as you might guess, a Linux distribution whose main focus is on gaming. It's based on a lighter distributions, features a light desktop, and is chocked full of games and demos. It began life in the Spring of 2006 and was received with great enthusiasm. As time went by and with a few similar entries coming into the field, one doesn't hear the name Supergamer as much anymore. But this is tragedy.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Debian Squeeze lives up to its name as the “universal operating system”: with the big number of supported architectures, the experimental FreeBSD architecture and its completely free kernel, this distribution keeps standing out from the crowd. It’s not plain sailing, though, as Koen Vervloesem discovers…

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

There has been many gnome shell reviews lately, both positively and negatively. Some are worried about lost functionality and less configuration options. But gnome shell really pack a nice array of ‘not so widely discussed’ real capabilities which could make all these skeptics happy. One of these is the extension framework which could really make the gnome shell an awesome piece of software

Why leave a sinking ship? Is Nokia wobbling over its commitment to Windows? Or just stringing along the Symbian and Qt faithful? The cell-phone giant has published a lengthy open letter pleading with coders to keep building apps for phones running Symbian and Qt - at least in the short term.

Subject: Paravirtualization With Xen 4.0 On Debian Squeeze (AMD64)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen 4.0 on a Debian Squeeze (6.0) system (AMD64) and create paravirtualized guests. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other (e.g. a virtual machine for a mail server, a virtual machine for a high-traffic web site, another virtual machine that serves your customers' web sites, a virtual machine for DNS, etc.), but still use the same hardware. This saves money, and what is even more important, it's more secure. If the virtual machine of your DNS server gets hacked, it has no effect on your other virtual machines. Plus, you can move virtual machines from one Xen server to the next one.
