Peter Zadrozny writes: "I think that the problem is based on the fact that the majority of the developers of, and users of open source are developers. As far as they are concerned, once they finish the application it goes over the wall to some black hole, of which they only hear when there are problems." [Should we hold his admiration of Scott McNealy's analogies against him? - Ed]
[Yes! - Other Ed.]
According to Joyce Bordash, IBM's director of iSeries ecosystem development, more than 244 new ISVs have been lured to the platform since the beginning of 2005, even without a strong push by IBM to grow the ISV base, which, she maintains, numbered 2,608 companies last year. "This year, our Innovation Initiative is really all about enablement and taking our current set of ISVs and helping to strengthen their applications. The fact that we got new ISVs out of that was wonderful, but there really wasn't a concerted effort on our part, nor was it one that we invested in heavily." That's on the table for 2006, she says.
Dilip Naik Appointed to Role of Chief Technology Officer for Embedded Solutions
ATLANTA, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Seagull Software (AEX: SEAGULL) announced today that LegaSuite -- Seagull Software's platform for rapidly transforming mainframe applications into reusable, SOA services -- supports Linux on IBM zSeries mainframes, and has met IBM's specifications for validation to receive the "Ready for IBM eServer with Linux" mark.
This worm spreads by exploiting web servers hosting vulnerable PHP/CGI scripts. It is a modified derivative of the Linux/Slapper and BSD/Scalper worms from which it inherits the propagation strategy. It scans an entire class B subnet created by randomly choosing the first byte from an hard-coded list of A classes and randomly generating the second byte.
Web comics are the next incarnation of traditional cartoons. And while the medium in which they are published has changed, the idea of comics making commentary still stays the same. Today, some Web comic creators use their comic to promote Linux advocacy.
Hot on the heels of our recent piece of silliness which showed how Google word verification threw up the delicious "minge", we can now report that the search monolith has discovered the true meaning of Vulture Central fave "titsup". Reader Adrian J. St. Vaughan explains:
NASHUA, N.H., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- NextCom launches the FleXtreme NextDimension, a top-of-the-line computer with outstanding computational and graphics capability, taking the best possible advantage of open standards in the smallest form factor available.
“The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and five Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have joined forces to pilot a system to identify zombie computers, notify the unfortunate owners and help them take appropriate action quickly.
Many ISPs have expressed an interest in participating in the project. Five ISPs have agreed to participate in a pilot project: Telstra Bigpond, Optus Internet, Westnet, Pacific Internet and West Australian Network.
[Ed.- Good luck explaining things to unsophisticated users.]
Novell has teamed up with Al Faris, a gold certified Novell solution provider, for a seminar to be held in Bahrain focused on Linux-based identity management and resource management solutions.
... the dark tower of Microsoft is slowly toppling brick by brick.
Many developing countries, and countries with a socialist background, are turning to an Open source technology called Linux. Cuba has already begun the switch from Microsoft to Linux and is just one of many countries that is becoming familiar with and able to use a budding new system that writes itself.
Brazil, India, South Africa, China, Russia, South Korea and recently, Germany are only some of the countries already broadly using various forms of Linux on a governmental level. These nations feel that they are killing two birds with one stone.
MIT's newly upgraded wireless network -- extended this month to cover the entire school -- doesn't merely get you online in study halls, stairwells or any other spot on the 9.4 million square foot campus. It also provides information on exactly how many people are logged on at any given location at any given time. It even reveals a user's identity if the individual has opted to make that data public.
So let's sum up. A high price for minimal coverage, for a risk with limited documented history of losses. It's your call.
Canton, MA – With the release of its PowerDAQ-for-Simulink Toolkit, UEI's PCI/PXI data-acquisition cards now support Mathworks’ Simulink programming tools for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid-prototyping applications on Linux.
The latest version of the Linux kernel has been finally released, after being postponed twice for basically no good reason. Originally, this 2.6.14 version was supposed to be available starting October 7th, as Andrew Morton, the man responsible for developing the Linux kernel, said in a mailing list posting in September.
You may be aware of the firestorm of protest from authors and publishers, including two lawsuits, over Google's new Print Library Project... Because I wrote an article for LWN in September about this project and the Author's Guild lawsuit against Google, I know that those accusations are not factually true. For that reason, I decided to republish the information here, because it explains how this project really works and what the legal arguments are on both sides. Google Print Library does not work at all the way it is described by Ms. Schroeder and Mr. Barr, as you will see. While there are arguments to be made on both sides, it is vital in any discussion to be accurate on the facts. So with that goal in mind, here is the result of my research on how Google Print Library really works.
[Ed.- Pamela Jones vs. Rampant Hyperbole and Hysteria. Go, Pamela, go!]
Thanks to everyone that shared in the celebration and shared photos of yourself with the 100 Million Downloads celebratory banner. We received nearly 200 photos and so it was very difficult for the SFX team to pick just ten winners. Actually, it was so difficult that we couldn't do it. The best we could do was to narrow it down to 17 winners (and we selected an 18th as the clear peoples' choice winner based on comments and views.)
Most of the photos fell into some basic categories so we're awarding a first place prize and runners up in these five categories: Nice Photos, Artistic, Group Pics, Best Desk, and Way Too Enthusiastic ;-)
[Ed-Just when you thought the bumbling fools at SCO could not act sillier they have reached a new low. ]
They have asked IBM to turn over "all documents concerning IBM's contributions to the Linux 2.7 kernel," including "development work." There is no Linux 2.7 kernel. Please, please, please, let SCO ask the court to sanction IBM for refusing to hand over the 2.7 materials. Pretty please?
Scott MacGregor writes: "The first release candidate of Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5 is now available for download. Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5 Release Candidate 1 is intended to allow testers to ensure that there are no last-minute problems with the Thunderbird 1.5 code. There will be at least one more release candidate before the final launch of 1.5.
Federal authorities arrested a 20-year-old California man on Thursday, accusing him of creating bot software to compromise nearly 400,000 Windows computers and using his control of the systems to garner more than $60,000 in profits.
[Ed.- What a criminal mastermind- he vandalized 400,000 PCs for a measly $60k? Way to go, schmuck. Just like causing a thousand dollars' worth of damage to steal a car stereo you'll hock for $40.]
