SAMTECH, the European technology leader for the development of Integrated Computer Aided Engineering Solutions, announces today the launch of the commercial release 2006 of the general purpose explicit and fast dynamic analysis software EUROPLEXUS.
[Is this one of those specialized niche areas where FOSS will be slow to develop? -- grouch]
The co-founder of one of the most popular mobile Linux platforms has predicted a "revolution" in the use of open source software on phones and handheld devices.
Damn Small Linux has always told its story efficiently through its name, and it continues to do so with its latest version: DSL-N (Damn Small Linux-Not) 0.1 RC1. As you might imagine, DSL-N is a larger live CD edition of DSL (85 MB), but it's still smaller than most distros.
This is a translation of a French proverb: “un Tiens vaut mieux que deux Tu l’auras”. It means that what you already have is better than what you may get—even if you may get more—because you already have it.
Strangely, it also is one of the problems with GNU/Linux systems.
Red Hat, a distributor of open-source Linux software, reported an 11 percent increase in first-quarter net income on Wednesday, boosted by subscriptions from corporate customers.
Deploying and using it may not be completely painless, but Drupal is a great content management system (CMS) framework that is lightweight, modular, and not too difficult to navigate.
IBM recently announced it would triple its investment in India over the next three years. "India and other emerging economies are an increasingly important part of IBM's global success," said IBM Chairman and CEO Samuel J. Palmisano.

Caps Successful Year with Customer Growth and Industry Recognition
On-chip interconnect specialist Silistix will create a "demonstration chip" to show off its "self-timed interconnect" generation tools. The unnamed chip will run Linux on Tensilica's Diamond Standard 232L core, and will also integrate co-processor cores and IP (intellectual property) blocks from Denali, and Sci-worx. It will use leading-edge 65nm CMOS process technology, Silistix says.
The Gnash project has been developing a free software Flash player since December. Filling one of the last major gaps on the GNU/Linux desktop, it is one of the Free Software Foundation's high-priority projects. We covered the project several months ago, when compiling the code was problematic. Now that Gnash has reached the 0.7.1 version, the player is still rough, but enough has been done to give us an indication of what the final version might be like.
Earlier this year, when Transitive, a startup that has created a sophisticated emulator for running software for one computer architecture on other architectures, got backing from Intel, the tongues started wagging that Intel had given Transitive money to create a version of its emulator to support the porting of Solaris/Sparc applications to Intel Xeon and Itanium processors, possibly running the Linux operating system. And, indeed, this has come to pass.

Why do Linux advocates argue over whether to call their operating system 'Linux' or 'GNU/Linux'? It's all open source
, right? At this point there are blood pressures rising among free software advocates, while any casual software user reading this is simply thinking, "Yeah, so?"

Yes, we know you're sick of hearing about Ubuntu. Ubuntu this, Ubuntu that, everyone must love Ubuntu or else. Don't run away screaming just yet, because there are good reasons for all the Ubuntu buzz, as Carla Schroder reports.
There are a couple of linux howtos floating on the Internet that deal with this very subject. As a matter of fact, those guides are what inspired to write this one. In the spirit of keeping it simple, let me recommend the Mandrake or as it’s currently known Mandriva Linux distro. This guide has been written with this distro in mind.
Sometimes I hear my hardworking network and system administrator chums dismissing Free and Open Source Software with "Spare me the philosophy junk. I just want good software, not a sermon." I quite sympathize with the desire to avoid rants and preaches. But I think it's important to understand that the philosophy behind Free Software is why the FOSS ecosystem is so strong and vibrant, and produces such good-quality software, and is so beneficial to end-users and developers.
This group of three short videos shows you how to download GNU/Linux, make a bootable Linux CD, and how to boot Linux on your computer without going through a tedious installation routine. We used Ubuntu for this demonstration, but the steps shown apply to all live CD Linux distributions.
Vim beginners may be puzzled when it comes to doing search and replace operations in Vim. The syntax can be a bit arcane, but after you've practiced, it becomes second nature. Let's take a look at how easy it can be.
