Microsoft will make it harder for customers to club together with lawyers to file lawsuits against its products. The company is rolling out new End User License Agreements (EULAs) that forbid punters from joining class-action proceedings.[size=11]This should go over well.. - Scott[/size]

If only there were a smartphone operating system choice which was open source, not tied to one single commercial operation and which used web technologies already established, rather than tailored to the unique needs of the phone.

Subject: How to get back that friendly desktop look on Mageia 2 GNOME 3

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

From my perspective, the worst culprit is GNOME 3. And though I have often criticised the default GNOME 3 interface, with a little bit of tweaking here and there, I have been able to get it to a point where I can actually use it for my daily computing tasks. It is not perfect, but much better than the default configuration. The idea is to make it look like a standard desktop that lends itself very well to using the mouse, rather than mostly to keyboard shortcuts.

Here's what the Linux Laptop Loaner program looks like: ZaReason dedicates a certain number of machines to each library. A small rural library might have two or three. A city library would start with five and see how their circulation needs are from that point.

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

Few things scare me more than disk partitioning and GRUB configuration software. Both of those chores involve knowledge about hard drive operations and a good slice of luck. And both can render a computer unbootalbe with one slight user error. So discovering the latest version of Grub Customizer helped lower my anxiety levels considerably.

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

This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.

Subject: The Linux Foundation Releases Free FOSS Component Tracker

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

As open source software continues to proliferate in businesses and large enterprises, it gets ever harder to track exactly which components are being used and whether they're being used in compliance with licenses. This is no small issue. Only a couple of years ago, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst predicted that soon 100 percent of significant software platforms and applications will contain open source components. With a nod to tracking and compliance of installed open source software, The Linux Foundation has announced the availability of The Linux Foundation FOSS Bar Code Tracker. Here is how it works.

The first thing you should always do after installing software (apart from viewing the manpages) is to check and see if it supports plugins. If you are not a programmer or hacker it really is the easiest way to extend capabilities. The Gnome text editor supports this feature out of the box.

Subject: Why Doesn't Fedora 17 Linux Have a Beefy Miracle Theme?

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

For the most part, Fedora Linux releases have had names that weren't particularly controversial. For instance, Fedora 16 was named Verne and the default desktop wallpaper had a submarine type theme (an hommage to 20,000 Leagues under the Sea). With Fedora 17, which was officially released on Tuesday the codename is Beefy Miracle. It's a theme that has its own mascot and it's a fun one. Yet despite that, the default Fedora 17 desktop has no Beefy Miracle. Why is that?

Subject: Should Apple Open up, and What Does Liberty Have to Do With It

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

Electronic Frontier Foundation just posted an article discussing “Apple’s Crystal Prison and The Future of Open Platforms” in which they characterize Apple’s and Microsoft’s restrictive policies as affronts on users freedom, and call on Apple to lead the way by aligning with Steve Wozniak’s call for Apple to open up. I generally support the idea of more openness in computing, but I see a couple of key issues with what they wrote.
