MediaReady Flyboy Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 22 2006 @ 06:02 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Joe Brockmeier writes "The MediaReady Flyboy is a Linux-based portable media player. It handles video, MP3s, pictures, and doubles as a portable data story device. On paper, it sounds pretty good. In practice, after a few weeks of playing with the Flyboy, I'm not convinced that it's worth the price tag. "

SuSE Linux 10.0 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, December 12 2005 @ 04:27 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

If you miss the older days of fiddling with your operating system, or you enjoy getting your hands a little dirty, you can't do better than this. And if you have reasonably conventional hardware, you can probably be up and running out of the box in no time, with several software suites.

Pocket Linux server showdown Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 11 2005 @ 05:15 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Do I really need to tell an Ars Technica reader why a Linux computer that can fit in one's pocket would be so cool? Probably not. These machines are the ultimate in small form factor, trading power and performance for size, portability and convenience. The navigation of this tradeoff is of paramount concern: give up too much power, and the device is useless; too little, and it'll be inconveniently large. I've taken a look at how two products, The BlackDog Pocket Linux Server and the Waysmall 200BT, navigate these treacherous waters.

First look: BeleniX live CD Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, December 06 2005 @ 05:20 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

BeleniX is a free live CD based on the OpenSolaris kernel. With it you can have Solaris, which once ran exclusively on SPARC servers, powering your modest desktop computer. But with few applications and lacking an installation script, the Live CD does little more than slake a nerd's thirst for a taste of Solaris.

The Linux Kernel Primer Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 04 2005 @ 09:05 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Book review - The Linux kernel is one of those places that mere mortals fear to tread. It's a scary place to explore and beyond doing an occasional compile, most developers steer clear of delving into the heart of the Linux operating system. However, there are those who are tempted by the 'here be dragons' signs and decide they want, or need, to get down into the internals of the kernel. For those intrepid individuals the 'Linux Kernel Primer' promises to be the guidebook they need as they start the journey.

AMD vs. Intel dual-core CPUs Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, November 28 2005 @ 04:45 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

After reading the round-by-round account of our dual-core desktop CPU prizefight, it should come as no shock that AMD's Athlon 64 X2 chips are the runaway victors here, laying out the Intel Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition 840 chips pins up. If we had to call out one chip, AMD's Athlon 64 X2 4400+ is an outstanding bargain given the competition, but as our results show, any AMD dual-core CPU will serve you better than its similarly priced Intel equivalent.

Firefox 1.5 Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, November 24 2005 @ 06:01 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

In the space of a roughly a year, Firefox has gone from relative obscurity to being the second most popular browser in the world. It's got only about 9 percent of the Internet browsing market, but that's incredible for a version 1.0 product, especially since the top browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer, comes bundled with new PCs. The release of Firefox 1.5, the first major upgrade since Firefox 1.0 came out in November 2004, is almost certain to drive adoption rates even higher.
