Someone stops you on the street and asks "Hey, do you know what time it is?" You tell him and continue on your way. But what if it was hundreds of thousands of people every day, because they didn't know who else to ask? You might decide to not answer any more. That's the situation that some important Internet time servers are in, and some simple changes in your computer's configuration can help ease the strain.
Welcome to this year's 8th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu Linux and one of the most prominent personalities of the Free Software world, is the focus of today's issue. The featured article is then followed by a news round-up quoting Mandriva's position on Xgl, discussing the current delays in the development of both SUSE Linux 10.1 and Fedora Core 5, revealing "Ebuntu", a new Ubuntu derivative with Enlightenment 17, and monitoring the career path of Daniel Robbins, the founder of Gentoo Linux. The issue concludes with the usual sections detailing the upcoming releases and new distributions. Happy reading! Join us at irc.freenode.net #distrowatch
Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth, whose other claim to fame is being the second "space tourist" in history, visited the Philippines for less than 24 hours early this month to conduct collaboration talks with industry stakeholders.
You're probably just using your Linux workstation at home to get on the Internet. But those spare cycles in the background could be used to filter your kids' web surfing with minimal impact to you.
An attempt to bring Firefox-style tabbed browsing of e-mail messages to the upcoming version 2.0 of Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client has come to a standstill.
I use Linspire because it's easy to support and lets me concentrate on doing a job rather than futzing with the OS.
I am a committed Suse user, although try other distros too.
I use Simply Mepis 3.3.1 for 90% of everything I do. It just flat out works for me, and comes with everything but a music studio, which is why windows is still here......
I used to try out different Linux desktops (RedHat, Suse, Ubuntu), and finally ended up running Debian Sarge.
Fedora Core 3 ... became my default desktop until late this past year when Debian Sarge was loaded followed by packages from mainly Testing and a few from Unstable on the tower.
Four months ago i made my full switch to linux at the age of 17 with Ubuntu (previously i messed around with floppix, a predecessor to the now popular live-cd distros).
Australian JBoss users are bracing themselves for an Oracle raid in the wake of mounting speculation that the software giant's CEO Larry Ellison plans to include the J2EE application server provider in his ongoing, open source acquisition spree.
Speculation is rife that JBoss, which has a long list of local customers such as Queensland Transport, which oversees the all state's road and motoring matters, Centrelink and Optus, is Ellison's next target.
I use Xandros 3 currently, and I've used this distro since it was Corel 1.0. Back then, it was surely the easiest way to get Debian installed.
Out of them all, Debian is King
I use Gentoo. I switched from Debian when I built a dual Opteron. At the time there were only a few Linux distros that were ready to run in 64bit with dual ( 32/64 bit ) binary support. I tried them all and ended up trying Gentoo last.
SimplyMepis is simply the best! I believe in Debian. And yes, i do suffer from portage envy, but Simply Mepis is the only distro to pass the "my wife the Realtor" test.
PCLinuxOS runs 13 desktops at the local community college and operates as email/internet machines.
