Rutgers used to use WebCT, a similar piece of course-management software, until a new version of WebCT was developed. The university considered this too expensive, however, hence the switch to Sakai, said University Director for the Office of Instructional and Research Technology Charles Hedrick.
The VIA C7®-D processor continues a path of power-efficient processor innovation, ideal for organizations looking to reduce their Carbon Footprint
[This is not Open Source releated but I thought it newsworthy none the less. - Scott}
In our previous installments we got our little Soekris board up and running, installed Pyramid Linux, and built a nice stout iptables firewall. Today we'll build a wireless access point, so that you can have both wired and wireless clients on your LAN. Some security-conscious admins prefer using a standalone WAP, rather than combining it with a firewall/gateway. It's simpler to build a dedicated WAP, so that's what we'll do today. You are welcome to put it together however you like

The one-day conference, to be held on Saturday, September 30, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus, features presentations, exhibits, an after-conference party, and a special appearance by some live penguins.
I finally began learning python. I wrote my last program in the 80s in Apple Basic, and here I am again starting to learn a new language. I can already guess what my biggest problem will be. I am incredibly impatient. How can I learn to program when I refuse to read the documentation all the way through?
The QS20 blades, each with two 3.2GHz Cell Broadband Engine processors, are good for high-performance computing tasks such as seismic research, encryption, digital image rendering and military surveillance.
Around the world Software Freedom Day is celebrated by free and open source enthusiasts with demonstrations, parties and conferences, many of which attract hundreds or even thousands of fans. For some, however, free software is still new and unknown and getting just a handful of people to come together to join in the celebrations is considered a success. In Burundi, in the heart of Africa, a handful of activists is doing just this.
Goodwill Industries provides employment services for the homeless, disabled, and disadvantaged. In 2005, the 80,000 employees of this international charity helped more than 720,000 people work their way to a better life. Goodwill CIO Steve Bergman knew that with the help of some updated technology, his company could do an even better job of reaching people. After looking at the options, Bergman decided that open source software was the best solution.
OASIS announced yesterday in Lyons, France, that it has launched a public Website "designed to serve as the official community gathering place and information resource for the OpenDocument Format (ODF)" sponsored by IBM, Sun Microsystems and, interestingly, Intel as well.
In a perfect world everyone would write in standard English and all publications would use a universal style guide. In the real world, however, you have to deal with different versions of English (British, American, Australian, etc.), and every publication has its own set of writing guidelines. If you write for several markets, things can get pretty complicated. But instead of wasting time on language idiosyncrasies, you can let an OOoBasic macro do the donkey work.
Commoditization of Web mapping tools compels Autodesk to release the source codes of its once-proprietary MapGuide software.
Sun has made efforts in the last year or two to open source more of its products. In June 2005, Sun launched its Glassfish project, providing access to portions of Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9 code under the Java Research Licence.

How-Tux is an Italian Slackware-based, desktop-oriented Linux distribution enhanced by GWARE GNOME, OpenOffice.org, and several multimedia and graphics applications. After months of development, the project has announced its 1.0 release.
A while back, I made a comment with regard to how great it would be to have a single, collective HCL (hardware compatibility list) for all of the popular Linux distributions. At the time, I felt very strongly that if we had a one single collective database of hardware that was known to work with the latest distributions, life would be a lot easier.
Well, it's about time. Microsoft's Windows Vista is just around the corner, and from the looks of things, it’s the OS that ought to be a hit among many Windows users. All is good in the world of Windows now, right? Eh, not so fast...
Unlike Windows and GNU/Linux, Mac OS X is tied to computers made only by one manufacturer: Apple. If you run Mac OS X you ought to be running an Apple computer. It is in fact easier to run some other operating system on Apple computers than it is to run Mac OS X on other type of computers. And this is just a clue to the point behind this article. It is about the Apple way, its biggest strength and at the same time the biggest weakness, or at least a reason behind the currently evident fact that Apple cannot dominate the desktop market.
If you're planning to take a stab at being an open source programmer then there are harder ways to do it than to start with PHP, MySQl and Apache. For one, the learning curve to getting your first application up and running is relatively shallow -- especially if you're already well-versed in HTML.
