For a software programmer, one of the ultimate projects that you could ever be involved with is an operating system. We're so used to building applications for the OS that the idea of actually working on the mother ship itself can seem like something that could never happen.
A list of things to do before connecting your Linux computer to the Internet.
[Not exactly what I would do but its not bad advice. - Scott]
Linux supercomputer maker plans to use funding to improve cluster management software.
With Novell, SuSE and Ubuntu rocking the headlines lately, for sometime, locating news about Red Hat meant that you had to really dig for it. I don't believe it was because they stopped trying or even ignored making new developments available to the press as a whole.
The original plans had called for the third draft of the GNU General Public License update to come out late last year. Needless to say, things didn't happen that way. Between trying to address concerns raised from various directions and responding to the Microsoft/Novell deal, the Free Software Foundation ended up having to slip its schedule; as a result, eight months have passed since the second draft was released. One could well argue that a major license update should not be made in a hurry, and thus the delays are not problematic. In any case, the wait is over: the new GPLv3 draft is available. In many ways, the draft resembles its predecessors; in others, it has changed significantly. This article will focus on the differences.
We are here today to talk about the developers of the KDE-Edu Project. The purpose of this interview is to feature and present their work and motivation, which is often not as well-known or regarded as other, more prominent work within the KDE project. The KDE-Edu developers are developing high-quality educational software for the K Desktop Environment. Their primary focus is on school children aged 3 to 18, and the specialised user interface needs of young users. However, they are also have programs to aid teachers in planning lessons, and others that are of interest to university students and anyone else with a desire to learn!
The idea that Linux is primarily a community-based project based on the work of thousands of independent, idealist hackers died a quiet death at home on March 27.
Chipmaker AMD has thrown its financial clout behind a non-profit organization setting up Linux-based computing and communication centers in East Africa. Inveneo initially used Wyse thin clients, but the organization has now switched over to MiniPCs based on AMD's recently-launched Ultra-value client reference design.
Dell contacted DesktopLinux.com on March 28 to let us know that the company will be releasing select desktop and notebook systems with pre-installed Linux as an option in the coming weeks. Dell, however, is still playing its Linux cards close to its vest. For example, we do not know at this time which Linux distribution -- or distributions -- it will be supporting, or what Dell desktop and laptop machines will have pre-installed Linux as an option.
Software behemoth Microsoft could be one of the biggest losers from proposed license changes to the Linux operating system unveiled Wednesday. That’s a possible outcome of updates to the license pushed by the Free Software Foundation. The FSF wants to make mutually exclusive pacts such as the Novell-Microsoft open-source agreement (see Exit Interview: Jeremy Allison, Strange Bedfellows) a violation of the next iteration of the GNU GPL (General Public License), the license that governs Linux use.
Here's proof that Linux is not a "young geeks only" OS. The author of this article, being a senior citizen herself, loves using Linux and highly recommends it for others in her age group.
The Library of Congress, where thousands of rare public domain documents relating to America's history are stored and slowly decaying, is about to begin an ambitious project to digitize these fragile documents using Linux-based systems and publish the results online in multiple formats.
Even those of us who have not played the "game" yet, we have at the very least heard of this virtual world. For me to even refer to Second Life as a game is criminal. This seemingly infinite place with all of its possibilities has a way of getting a person's mind going.
CodeGear has announced that Delphi for PHP – an integrated visual Rapid Application Development (RAD) environment for the popular PHP Web development language – is now shipping worldwide. Delphi for PHP brings the RAD productivity benefits that Delphi users have enjoyed for years to PHP Web developers. PHP, designed to allow Web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly, is the most prominent dynamic Web language today and has become one of the top 10 programming languages overall.

Germany's next-generation TerraSAR-X uses sophisticated ground infrastructure to deliver Earth observation data to scientists and commercial customers. Open-source software developed at ESA's Operations Centre is helping to make the mission a success.
You may have heard about the Kathy Sierra case, which has been spreading in the blogosphere like wildfire for the past couple of days. In case you haven’t heard about the news, here’s a quick synopsis. Sierra, a prominent female blogger, decided to withdraw from participating in a workshop at O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology Conference and decided to stop writing on her blog because of the death threats and crude sexual comments that she has received in the course of four weeks.
This article demonstrates the advantages of an unorthodox alternative: using simple helper objects to build a Web interface based on servlets alone. This is an invitation to think outside the framework, if you will, and imagine a Web interface built directly on the Java Servlet API.
Despite evidence of open source creep, Kagermann thinks it is still a database and OS-level model. He tackled the rise of open source in a recent interview with Computer Business Review. "It is an option for operating systems and databases but not at the business application level," he said. "There are no open source ERP products that are any good for the high end, although it could be argued that they could be developed for the low end."
