HIG Hunting Season: Icons

The great work of the Oxygen icon artists is a much discussed and anticipated part of KDE 4.

As a writer, the only reason I ever got that first computer wasbecause it was far more efficient than a typewriter, and certainly morereadable than my own handwriting. The sheer volume of what I've turned out over the years would be impossible for me to manage on paper. Add to that all...

Microsoft Spits in GPL Creator Richard Stallman's Eye

Goodness, didn't Microsoft just spit in Richard Stallman's eye?

The GPL creator's attempts to stop Microsoft from cutting any more of those patent-protection deals like the one it cut with Novell don't quite seem to be working.

Clubbing baby Linux penguins

Some things can't be spun.

If you're clubbing baby seals into a bloody pulp, for example, I can't hear your justifications. You can talk about needing to make a living and how this is how it's always been done, but all I'm thinking is, there is nothing you can say that will make me like you for this. Or ever agree that it is acceptable. I want you to find a better way, something that doesn't involve cruelty to adorable little creatures that never harmed a flea. I hear them crying.

Similarly, when Microsoft joined the SCO "you must pay me forever for my precious IP" club, made up of companies that don't know enough not to club baby Linux penguins, the world said, Ewww.

Shell tip: Set the shell prompt and themes in Linux Terminal

Most of us work with a shell prompt. By default most Linux distro displays hostname and current working directory as a prompt. You can easily customize your prompt to display information important to you. You change look and feel by adding colors. In this small howto I will explain howto setup:

  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Linux
Sometimes the simplest game can be every bit as addictive and fun as monster games like Halo 3 or Gears of War. This is probably the reason why games like Pong still remain popular to this day and continue to inspire developers. While there are probably hundreds of versions of Pong-inspired games out there, one that will appeal to hardcore Pong fans and casual players alike is PONG! Multiplayer, a Firefox extension that allows you to indulge in Pong without leaving the comfort of your favorite browser.

Create precise detection zones so you can receive a page, SMS, or e-mail a few minutes before the precipitation event, giving you a handy notice of when you can dash inside from your car.

Torvalds on GPLv3 final draft

The GPLv3 debates are drawing to a close. By the end of the year, it may have become reality. Whether or not the Linux kernel team will adopt the new license, however is still up for debate. Linus Torvalds is not as fervently anti-GPLv3 as he was in earlier renditions of the license, but he still isn't ready to support a wholesale move to it, either.

Is the Linux development model flawed?

Back in the early 1990s, when Linux initiator Linus Torwalds and open source software started to make headlines, the idea of giving software away seemed crazy. Looking at the headway the movement has made since then, you might be forgiven for wondering why Linux desktops have failed to become as ubiquitous as Linux servers are.
