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.

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.

Few things are quite so technically cutting edge as open-source software, which is why you expect to see it used by really cutting-edge folks. Like . . . kindergarten teachers?

Here is Judge Brooke Wells's Order as text. 39 pages and 128 footnotes! Why? I can't read the judge's mind, of course, but my best guess is she is indicating to SCO not to bother to appeal this order. And if they do, she has provided her reasons -- with specificity, one might even say, sufficient to uphold her decision. You can follow along with the references on Groklaw's IBM Timeline page, where the docket numbers are provided.
[Yippee! This is the smack-down SCOG has deserved from the beginning. You can almost hear Judge Wells sizzling and simmering as she dots every 'i' and crosses every 't'. -- grouch]
