Linux text editors: Do any make the grade? Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, August 22 2007 @ 02:33 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Linux buffs tend to scoff at one of the major reasons that Windows users like me haven't switched yet: We don't want to give up our favorite applications. With countless open-source options, plus a rising number of commercial apps for Linux, their argument goes, we can certainly find a replacement for whatever software we're running on XP or Vista.

Windows vs. Linux vs. OS X: CIO John Halamka Tests Ubuntu Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, August 01 2007 @ 01:14 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Last summer, CareGroup CIO John Halamka began looking for a viable alternative to the Microsoft Windows desktop operating system. After 16 years using Windows, he had enough of its instability and the countless updates that automatically installed themselves on his computer—often at inopportune times, like when he was in the middle of a presentation. As CIO of a health-care organization and affiliated medical school with 40,000 employees and 9 million patient records, Halamka has to be sure that the computers in the hospital, its administrative offices and medical school are secure, stable and easy to use.

Review: Yoggie Pico personal firewall Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 26 2007 @ 04:01 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Yoggie's innovative Yoggie Pico may well be the first hardware firewall that is truly practical for mobile workers running Windows-based computers. The device appears to work well, except for a simplistic web-based user interface that may not satisfy technical users.

First look: Firefox 3 alpha 5 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 13 2007 @ 02:36 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

The fifth public alpha build of Firefox 3 has been officially released. The new alpha build, which is codenamed Gran Paradiso, features early components of the revamped Places system, a cohesive storage framework that will unify bookmark and history storage. An earlier prototype of the Places system was tested in early Firefox 2 alpha (Bon Echo) builds but was removed because it couldn't be completed within the Firefox 2 release timeframe.

Linux System Administration - Book Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, June 12 2007 @ 01:56 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Bob Uhl writes ""I've just finished reading a review copy of O'Reilly's latest GNU/Linux title, Linux System Administration. It's a handy introduction for the beginner GNU/Linux sysadmin, and a useful addition to an experienced sysadmin's bookshelf. The book is essentially a survey of various Linux system-administration tasks: installing Debian; setting up LAMP; configuring a load-balancing, high-availability environment; working with virtualization. None of the chapters are in-depth examinations of their subjects; rather, they're enough to get you started and familiar with the concepts involved, and headed in the right direction."

Review: Fedora 7 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 06 2007 @ 01:30 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Joe Brockmeier writes "Fedora 7 was released last week, a little bit behind schedule, with a spate of new features, updates, and live CD installable "spins" of Fedora in KDE and GNOME flavors. I found a lot of good in this release, but a bug in the FireWire stack that attacked my external backup drive made this release just a little shy of perfect."

The Linux programmer's toolbox Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, June 01 2007 @ 01:33 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Linux, like the other *nix platforms, has a reputation of being a good environment for developers. In fact, Linux and hacking – in the original sense of the word – seem to go hand in hand, so much so that some commentators still find it hard to conceive of it as anything but a server and/or development platform.

SlashGear Review: Linutop’s fanless Linux PC Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, May 31 2007 @ 11:47 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Much to my shame, Linux is something of a mystery to me. Actually, I think they should teach at least the basics of it in school computing classes, alongside English and at least one foreign language (though don’t ask me about my French abilities either), but this is neither time nor place for my election campaigning. And so I look on with maudlin self-disgust at promises of Dell laptops with Linux pre-installed, or clever thumb-drives and Live CDs that offer a chance to fiddle with the OS without ruining your everyday copy of Windows; I inevitably fold when faced with some sort of command prompt. Perhaps, then, you’ll wonder why I was so keen to try the Linutop, a surprisingly compact and silent diskless computer that runs a specially tweaked version of xubuntu.
