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.

The Linux-based Pontis MX2020 Portable Media Player Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Tuesday, November 15 2005 @ 05:35 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Check out this review of the Linux-based Pontis MX2020 Portable Media Player.

The MX2020 sports a 20 GB hard drive, a 3.5" TFT touchscreen and a compact flash port. The original Korean version supported WiFi via a special CF card too, but the Pontis has this ability disabled. The MX2020 comes with a cradle that has a slot for a second battery (charges via AC or USB), a standard usb cable, A/V cables, CDs, a very well-written and visual manual, earphones and lastly, a leather case.

Hardware emulation with QEMU Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, October 31 2005 @ 11:49 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Tom Haddon takes a look at QEMU, an open source cross-platform emulator for Linux hosts. It allows you to emulate a number of hardware architectures (x86, x86-64, and PowerPC are currently known to work, with others, including SPARC and MIPS, in development).

"Right from the beginning, I was impressed by the quality of QEMU, as well as the feature set. Networking seemed to "just work" from the first; the emulated machine could access the Internet while running from my wireless laptop."

Ubuntu 5.10 Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, October 28 2005 @ 06:50 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Free-bees reviews the latest version of Ubuntu in which they conclude that "Essentially, this release of Ubuntu is the most polished and well rounded yet. It is stable, and the installation is effortless, although it is somewhat mystifying as to why one of the Ubuntu's greatest strengths, the wide range of packages within the Universe repository, isn't advertised more."
