'We should whack them'Microsoft executives - having been unceremoniously dressed down for, among other things, plotting to cut off rival Netscape's supply of life-giving air - discussed bludgeoning Dell over the true-blue ally's embrace of Linux.

The EJB Query Language (EJB QL) allows you to write queries without any knowledge of the relational schema governing the entity beans. This tutorial explains core concepts of the EJB QL with the help of an example Web application using an entity bean that you'll deploy on the Apache Geronimo application server.
It’s important to understand volunteer motivation to encourage further altruistic and mutually beneficial behavior. O’Reilly Editor Andy Oram has created a short survey for people to contribute to community documentation: “Do you answer questions on mailing lists about how to use a software tool or language? Do you write documentation, put up web pages, or contribute to wikis about software? If so, please take the following survey to help O’Reilly do research that will help us understand why people contribute to documentation (versus software projects themselves.) The results will be published on the O’Reilly web site, and may help software projects and communities get more such contributions. We’re only interested in hearing from people who do this for non-monetary reasons.

In Part 1 of this series, DesktopLinux.com columnist Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols prepared a system for use in comparing the features and performance of Windows Vista with Linux.

Back in the day, your operating system was a big deal. It was who you were. Mac vs. Windows was like Catholic vs. Protestant, or Republican vs. Democrat, and about as rational. Now it's somewhere down around Coke vs. Pepsi...So many of the file-compatibility issues have been solved, and so much computing goes on in the browser anyway. So who cares?
Barely a week after a U.S. judge approved a landmark antitrust agreement with Microsoft, company executives were swapping e-mails suggesting Dell deserved a beating for its growing interest in Linux, according to documents filed with a state court.
As an educator, I am interested in course management systems (CMS) applications for courses, curriculums, and institutions. Well-known proprietary CMS applications such as WebCT and Blackboard are too expensive for the schools and companies I work with. After testing and playing with several open source CMS applications, my favorite is Moodle.
The previous incarnation of this book (seven years old, now) was a heavy hitter in the Linux and UNIX communities. While that's not a bad thing, it doesn't do much for you if you administer a heterogeneous server and desktop environment (tell me you don't have any Windows computers at all where you work). Preston threw a much wider net this time, covering not only UNIX/Linux and Windows but Mac OS X, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, and even VMware. Most backup and recovery books on the market target specific OS and hardware platforms. That would seem to make sense on the surface and would make the book easier to write. This book however, proposes to be the "one-stop-shopping" text for just about everyone's needs. Preston's first book on the subject was a smash. Let's see if lightning strikes twice in the same place.
An industry coalition that has represented competitors of Microsoft in European markets before the European Commission stepped up its public relations offensive this morning, this time accusing Microsoft of scheming to upset HTML's place in the fabric of the Internet with XAML, an XML-based layout lexicon for network applications.
Web 2.0 is a popular buzzword, but nobody seems altogether sure what it means. It has something to do with user-driven content and interaction among users, but is there more to it?

This month, The Geronimo renegade cuts through the hype and looks at the Apache Geronimo project as both an enabler of Web 2.0 applications and as a Web 2.0 application itself.

Bug stamp-out list for January 26, 2007
Last year the Italian FreeBSD user group, GUFI, rekindled the FreeSBIE project to develop a live CD based on the FreeBSD operating system. After more than four months of development, and an equal number of beta releases, the project released FreesBIE 2.0 this month.
