China president at Gates house, not White House

The first lavish dinner of China President Hu Jintao's historic visit to the United States next week will be in a big, secure house in Washington where the host is one of the world's most powerful men. The White House? No.

The most powerful man in China makes his first trip to the United States to meet with President Bush. This is a historic moment. On his first night in the United States, he is not going to the White House. No, He will be the in-home guest of Bill Gates. You make the connections.

Gutierrez on the Record: A Good Man in a Storm

When Peter Quinn announced the adoption of the new Massachusetts Enterprise Technology Reference Model (which included the OpenDocument Format) in September of last year, he specified January 1, 2007 as the conversion date for ODF. But did that make sense?

Articles from Helios: The People's Republic of China IS OwNeD

It was done without firing a shot. Firearms or missiles were not used in this victory, China's defeat, while not violent, was equally as pernicious. China laid the Sword of Surrender at the feet of Bill Gates.

Triple Boot with Boot Camp

The more, the merrier they say. If you can dual-boot with Boot Camp, why stop there? The people at have managed to get triple-booting working with OS X, Windows XP, and Gentoo Linux. There are instructions at their site, with, of course, the normal caveats.

Damn Small Linux plus pendrive equals portable paradise

I recently acquired a 256MB USB pendrive that I use for storing personal documents and work-related stuff. As a Linux fan who wanted to make the most of his new toy, I went looking for the simplest, smallest distro I could find that could boot from a pendrive. I found Debian-based Damn Small Linux, whose long list of bundled applications fits into a meager 50MB. The more I use it, the more I like it.

Firefox fix brings many needed changes

If you are using Firefox, whether on Windows, Linux or Mac, it's in your best interest to go and get the latest version from Mozilla's site!

Innovation in Linux: An extraordinary Linux review

There are plenty Linux reviews, though almost none of them are about Linux. You see, Linux is only a kernel, but most Linux reviews are about KDE, SuSE, the desktop and so on. Those reviews aren't about Linux, strictly speaking. In contrary, this review IS about Linux, made for the people who normally don't configure and compile their own kernel. In a previous LXer feature, my colleague Tom Adelstein said Linux is a me-too technology. That may be true for the desktop, but it is not fair to judge the whole Linux technology on its desktop. I hope to show, Linux (the kernel!) is full of innovation and peculiar features, which sometimes even sound like secret language, and is preceding its Big Competitor when it comes to features.

Time May Be Right for Government Agencies to Adopt Linux

Whether an agency is replacing legacy systems or deploying new servers, a combined open source solution from Intel, HP and Red Hat is the most scalable, manageable and reliable alternative.

Why I Like Microkernels

Right in between a car crash and Easter, I knew I had to write a Sunday Eve Column. So here I am, digesting vast quantities of chocolate eggs (and I don't even like chocolate), craving for coffee (for me about as special as breathing), with the goal of explaining to you my, well, obsession with microkernels. Why do I like them? Why do I think the microkernel paradigm is superior to the monolithic one? Read on.

Christian endorsement of Free Software increases

Last November I described the Free Software's Surprising Affinity with Catholic Doctrine. Since then, several important things happened, from feedback by Stallman and other Free SW users to the birth, or acceleration, of some projects specifically based on the concept that Christians have even more reasons than others to adopt Free Software.

Will Lotus Notes Lead Microsoft To Linux Desktop

IBM's upcoming release of Lotus Notes for Linux is, according to Novell survey responders, among the most eagerly anticipated events in Linuxdom. And rightly so.

My sysadmin toolbox

I started experimenting with Linux for fun, first with Slackware, but in the last few years more with Debian and its derivative distributions. Lately I've been using Linux increasingly in my job. As I've gotten more experienced with Linux, I've started teaching Linux courses to colleagues. Connectivity and fast package and file management are important components in my administration toolbox.
