Options in Calc

Like other applications, Calc has several dozen options in how it is formatted and operates. These options are available from Tools -> Options -> Calc. Thanks to's habit of sharing code between applications, some of the tabs for these options resemble those found in other applications. Others are unique to Calc and the business of spreadsheets. Either way, the more you know about Calc's options, the more you can take control of your work.

'Debian Für Dummies'

Virtualbox on 64-bit Ubuntu works like a charm

Innotek's GPL-licensed Virtualbox software lets you create a virtual operating environment inside your PC's real operating system. I've been using Virtualbox for several months now on a 32-bit laptop running Ubuntu 7.04, and I've been impressed with the software. However, my main PC at home utilizes a 64-bit version of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn, and Virtualbox didn't support 64-bit OSes -- until this month. Now that I've tried it, I'm happy to report it works just as well as its 32-bit sibling.

Ethical dilemma: Should I continue to use the Linspire-sponsored

Given Linspire's recent "intellectual property" deal with Microsoft, by which MS agrees not to sue Linspire or its customers over so-called patent violations in Linux (and leaving the rest of us out to dry), should I continue to use the service sponsored by Linspire?

The opening day of the 9th annual Ottawa Linux Symposium (OLS) began with Jonathan Corbet, of Linux Weekly News and his now familiar annual Linux Kernel Report, and wrapped up with a reception put on by Intel where they displayed hardware prototypes for upcoming products.

Report: QuickBooks and Linux: A Server Story

For a lot of small-to-medium-sized business, the holdout has been Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions. Despite its "Enterprise" name, Intuit has aimed the product at businesses ranging from 50 to 250 people. For many businesses, this accounting server is now the de facto standard for financial organization, but it has been available only for Windows. But no longer--now you can buy Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions for Linux. Well, with limits.

PEAK is dead... kinda, sorta

The Python Enterprise Application Kit no longer exists as an integral project, according to a status report posted by its developer earlier this week, but some individual elements are thriving and will continue to receive attention.

  • Groups: Linux; Story Type: News Story
Today AMD has officially released their low-end and mainstream graphics cards in the Radeon HD 2000 family, the Radeon HD 2400 and Radeon HD 2600 series respectively. While these new graphics cards should already be at your favorite retailer or presently in route, where are the Linux drivers? AMD's high-end Radeon HD 2900XT was pushed out the door in early May, but we have yet to see any official support for that or any of the graphics processors in the Radeon HD 2000 series under Linux.

Is Linux Splitting into Two Factions?

With the recent news of several Linux vendors entering into partnership agreements with Microsoft (Novell, Linspire, Xandros), there has been much debate recently about two factions of Linux forming. Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux.

Yoper 3.0 requires some tinkering

Yoper claims to be a high-performance Linux distribution optimized for newer processors. It incorporates components from other distros, but its packages have been built from scratch to provide enhanced performance. I tested a beta of Yoper 3.0 on my desktop a year ago and was so impressed that when 3.0 was released this month, I installed it on my new Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv6105 notebook. Using it, however, left me disappointed.

This week at LWN: Counting vulnerabilities

Recently, Jeff Jones posted a survey comparing the number of vulnerabilities found in the first 90 days of Microsoft Vista deployments against those of a number of other operating systems. It may not come as a surprise that Mr. Jones, who is a Microsoft employee, found that Vista was significantly more secure than the alternatives. There has been no shortage of such surveys over the years, and it may be tempting to write this one off as another bit of random FUD. Still, it's good to have an answer to such things.

Speak your mind, be open to responce.

Right now “Open Source” is in a bit of a jam. Why? For years projects/companies have been using the term “Open Source” to describe closed products. It’s a situation Free Software advocates understand dearly - for years we’ve been trying to explain how the term “Open Source” is confusing when it’s goal is to describe the exact same freedoms Open Source supposedly heralded as a business’s dream.
