With last summer's introduction of AMD's 939-pin Athlon 64 processor came a demand for motherboards that will support it. There are only a handful of boards on the market designed for the socket 939 Athlon 64 CPU that are equipped with an AGP 8X interface; the new trend is to use PCI Express instead of AGP, in spite of the anemic video card selection. MicroStar International's K8T Neo2-FIR offers the best of both worlds, accommodating new technology while continuing to support the old -- and it works great with GNU/Linux.
Linux World Expo is one of the premier (possibly the premier) Linux expo on the east coast. Boasting everything from big name vendors HP and IBM, chip makers Intel and AMD, and software firms like Computer Associates on down to relatively small newcomers like OSoft it features something for everyone. There's also the .org pavillion, a great place to pick up the latest news from free OS developers and software designers. Think X.org or CentOS/cAos.

I was recently assigned the task of converting a system running Windows XP to dual-boot Windows and Linux. The user needed to run Windows most of the time, but occasionally needed to boot Linux to run special applications. The one overriding requirement was to change the existing Windows setup as little as possible. In this case, that meant adding a second hard drive. Easy enough, right? Well, not so fast.
Some of the industry's most powerful vendors came to the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston last week with a simple message: Linux is ready for prime time.

I am a software architect working in a mixed environment, with both Linux and Windows systems on the network. As happens with many others working in IT, different projects often require me to take on additional roles, like system administration, quality control, programming, and sometimes even documentation. To balance out the different tasks and roles, I depend on several open source applications, regardless of what platform I'm in, what project I'm on, or what position I'm filling at the moment.

Vidalinux is a Gentoo based desktop OS from our friends in Puerto Rico In this article, I will review Vidalinux 1.1 with a special comparison to Gentoo.

I spoke with Vidalinux developers and they were more than happy to provide me with a copy of the Premium Edition.
