Subject: Big biz 'struggling' to dump Windows XP

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

[b]I've spent a lot of my last year[/b] in and out of hospitals...both with my own problems as well as Diane's. One thing I noticed almost immediately is that every computer screen I saw was running Microsoft Windows XP Professional. With the numbers quoted in the following article, the cost of migrating large enterprises over to Windows 7, one would think switching to Linux might be the answer. Not according to an IT guy at Seton Williamson Hospital in Round Rock. I shook my head as I hung up the phone, realizing just what an uphill battle he faces, either way he goes. Switching to Linux would probably save them money in comparison, but getting vendors and other business associates in synch would be a nightmare. All they can do, seemingly, is pour their money into the Microsoft Monopoly and curse the cost of doing business.

Subject: 6 Top Free Android News Library Apps

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

News library apps offer the benefit of making reading the latest news, magazines, and blogs in a simple and intuitive way. Browsing the web on an Android device can be a frustrating experience. Stripped down mobile websites offer an incomplete solution. Standard websites often require constant zooming in and out to read the content especially on devices with low screen resolutions. This can make keeping on top of the latest world and social news more difficult than it needs to be.

At the request of many Phoronix readers following the release of updated Arch Linux media, here are some new Arch Linux benchmarks. However, this is not just Arch vs. Ubuntu, but rather a larger Linux distribution performance comparison. In this article are benchmark results from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, CentOS 6.2, Fedora 17, Slackware 14.0 Beta, and Arch Linux.

From time to time, the GNOME Desktop Project blows up, with one developer or another indulging in soul-searching and realising that the project lacks direction. Or people. Or something else.

System administrators at the USENIX LISA 2011 conference (LISA is a great system administration conference, by the way) in Boston in December got to hear Michael Perrone's presentation "What Is Watson?" Michael Perrone is the Manager of Multicore Computing from the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. The entire presentation (slides, video and MP3) is available on the USENIX Web site, and if you really want to understand how Watson works under the hood, take an hour to listen to Michael's talk (and the sysadmin Q&A at the end).

Subject: The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.3 x86_64 (nginx, Courier, ISPConfig 3)

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

This tutorial shows how to prepare a CentOS 6.3 x86_64 server for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: nginx web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, BIND nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, Mailman, and many more. Since version 3.0.4, ISPConfig comes with full support for the nginx web server in addition to Apache; this tutorial covers the setup of a server that uses nginx, not Apache.

Subject: A Month with Raspbian

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

Three months on, my Raspberry Pi is still proving a delight. I have settled on the Raspbian distribution as my tinkerer’s habitat, giving me access to the floating-point unit in the glibc libraries (especially libm.so). However, being mostly uninitiated in Debian administration, I have spent some time learning “the Debian way” of doing things. This article will therefore be a shameless hodge-podge of Raspbian review and Debian ignorance, plus a handy (for me) trick at the end.[size=10]Thanks to caitlyn for prodding me to do this. - gus3[/size]

Subject: Installing Linux on Windows 8 PCs: No easy answers

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

Here's Microsoft's plan: Every new PC sold with Windows 8 will be locked up tight with Microsoft's UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) secure boot on. Microsoft says that this is to help secure your PCs from rootkits and malware. It also happens to stop you from easily installing Linux or any other operating system, such as Windows 7 or XP, on a Windows 8 system. Thanks Microsoft. We really needed that kind of protection!

Subject: What does Steam mean for Linux users? Probably nothing

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

Valve co-founder and current managing director Gabe Newell recently made it pretty clear how much he really hates Windows 8. Two weeks ago, Valve officially announced that they would be porting their Steam distribution service to Ubuntu and would be working to natively support Valve games on Linux, starting with Left 4 Dead 2. Their drive behind the project: Newell’s belief that Windows 8 will be a “catastrophe” for PC users.
