VMWare beware: Sun's FOSS VirtualBox hits the sweet spot for Linux Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, August 11 2008 @ 02:34 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

When it comes to virtualising Linux, VMWare has always had the edge of Microsoft’s Virtual PC which has limited video display support. Although these were the best two, there have been other lesser-known options like XENSource. Here’s Sun’s VirtualBox and why it is truly kick-ass.

Monday, August 11 2008 @ 02:03 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Today's IT department is faced with the constant question of which platform wins the battle for the corporate network's heart and mind. I won't get into the debate of which platform will reign supreme in the next 5 - 10 years. Quite frankly I do not even want to think that far down the line

First look: VMware Fusion 2 beta 2 Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, August 01 2008 @ 01:20 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Users wanting to run Windows or Linux natively on the Mac has never had it so good. There are several options available for running almost any x86-based operating system as a VM under Mac OS X, including Parallels, VMware Fusion, and VirtualBox. If you like the fact that Macs are less prone to problems, viruses, and spyware, but you simply have to run a few Windows applications, it's a great time to be alive.

Kismet is a wireless "detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system," and one of the growing list of essential open source tools for computer network security professionals. Kismet runs on any POSIX-compliant platform, including Windows, Mac OS X, and BSD, but Linux is the preferred platform because it has more unencumbered RFMON-capable drivers than any of the others.

Sidux, a Great Alternative to Ubuntu First Impressions Carla Schroder Thursday, July 3, 2008 12:00:03 PM Sidux is a new Debian derivative that's still just a baby, born in January 2007. Sidux announced a brand-new release on June 26, Sidux 2008-02, so we're going to kick the tires and take it for a drive, and see what sets it apart from other children of Debian. Currently it offers a choice of the KDE or Fluxbox desktop, and it supports both 32-bit i686 and AMD64. There is also an XFCE variant. Before trying it out for yourself, be sure to read the Quick Start section in the excellent and exceptionally helpful Sidux manual before burning it to a CD.

ASUS Eee PC 901 Linux Edition Review Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Wednesday, June 25 2008 @ 01:56 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

If the ASUS Eee 900 basically amounted to a larger-screened version of the 7-inch original, then the Eee 901 marks its graduation into a distinct model. Packing Intel’s latest 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, in place of the 900’s Celeron 900MHz, ASUS could reasonably have left the rest of the notebook the same and simply added a little to the price. Thankfully they’ve subjected the 901 to a mild degree of fettling, tweaking case and controls and making for a markedly more attractive proposition. ASUS sent over the Windows version of the 901; check out what exactly impressed us after the cut.

Tuesday, June 24 2008 @ 01:51 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Most free-libre accounting applications that ship with GNU/Linux distributions are for personal accounting only: they manage one person's finances.
