Subject: 24 Hackers Arrested, But Are We Any Safer?

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

After the US arrested 24 hackers this week, it left me wondering if we were any safer, and the answer is we're not because that was just a drop in the bucket. You're not going to solve network security issues through law enforcement.

Subject: Solaris, SCO, Linux, Open Source and Red Hat Summit

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

Vendors and analysts alike tell me people aren't worried about Linux litigation and that Solaris isn't a concern for Linux vendors. As it turns out, that's not entirely accurate. I was on a panel today at the Red Hat Summitt in Boston and we got a question about the risk of Linux, from a legal perspective. Apparently it is still a (small) concern.

Subject: An open source analogy: Open source is like sharing a recipe

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

I love listening to open source gurus explain open source to those who have never encountered it, and especially to those with little computing background. In conversations with folks who may have never heard the term 'source code,' open source advocates don't typically have recourse to related words like 'Linux,' 'copyleft,' or 'binary blobs.' That comfortable vocabulary suddenly fails them, leaving them frustrated and stammering.

Subject: KLook gets PDF/ODT support, while StackFolder gets drag-n-drop

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

KLook is a multi-file-type viewer. It is not an application that can be started standalone, but is integrated into other applications, like Dolphin, KDE’s file manager. StackFolder, on the other hand, is a widget application that makes it possible to browse the contents of a directory, or your entire home folder, without opening Dolphin.

Subject: Secure Boot: Red Hat and Canonical present their alternatives

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

Secure Boot is a type of mechanism that verifies that the code executed is digitally signed. Thus the computer can only boot an operating system that has a bootloader properly signed. This is a requirement that Microsoft asked to put on computers the badge “Windows 8 Certified”. This request by Microsoft has split the waters among the major Linux distributions , find out why.

Subject: How to Configure Permissions in Linux

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

This time we are going to have a look at Linux permissions. Every current operating system deals with permissions, whether it is ownership of a file or just gaining read access to a folder. As with everything else in Linux there are command line tools and the graphical user interface so we shall discuss both.
