Microsoft attacks IBM over ODF

Microsoft has severely criticised IBM, saying the company is pushing the OpenDocument Format standard to the detriment of Microsoft's own Open XML standard.

[It's a little aged by now, but readers should know MS is still trying to shove two non-interoperable standards down our throats. The world does NOT need two standards to keep translating, we need one standard we can all use. Please, Microsoft, get that through your thick skulls! - dcparris]

Next Camino Release Will Carry 1.5 Version Number

Lead Camino developer Mike Pinkerton has announced that the next Camino release will be 1.5 rather than 1.1. Mike cites the large number of improvements as the reason for the version number hike: "Personally, I don't think calling it Camino 1.1 does it justice, it's more like a 1.5, so that's exactly what we've done."

Installing 64-bit Oracle 10g on 64-bit Linux

What I think of home users trying to install 64-bit Oracle on 64-bit Linux is a matter of record -and I stand by everything I've written about it. So I take this opportunity now to tell you to save your time and efforts, stop reading this article and (please!) go and install 32-bit Oracle on a 32-bit O/S instead. Almost certainly, it will be quicker, less prone to error and just as functional when you're finished. But...

After 9 years, Bugzilla moves up to 3.0

Mozilla has released Bugzilla 3.0, with many new features and code improvements. Bugzilla, a server-based application designed to track and manage software development bug reports, began life as an internal program within Netscape, before version 2.0 was open-sourced in August 1998. In the nine years between versions 2.0 and 3.0, Bugzilla has been adopted by numerous companies and open source projects.

Multimedia-oriented Ubuntu Studio arrives

Ubuntu Studio 7.04, a Ubuntu Linux variant aimed at audio, video, and graphic enthusiasts, was released on May 10 by its U.S.-based project team. The distribution, based on a 2.6.20 kernel and the GNOME desktop, includes a collection of open-source applications that assist with multimedia creation.

After five months of Linux, I do Windows

When was the last time you installed Windows NT 4.0? If your answer is "never," I believe you. If you've done it countless times, do I have your sympathy? I need it. My most recent major Windows upgrade (chronicled on my This Old PC blog) was taking a Win 98se box to Windows 2000. For those who think Windows has some kind of compatibility advantage over Linux, let me recount how in Windows 98 I didn't have a prayer of getting my cheap Airlink 101 wireless card to work, USB was spotty, and the thing was painfully slow to boot and to run.

KDE 4.0 alpha arrives!

Some people have been anxiously waiting for the summer blockbuster movies to arrive. Many Linux fans, on the other hand, have been waiting impatiently for what they hope will be the next Linux desktop box-office smash hit: KDE 4.0.

I've been at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, covering action for Tux500 for the last several days. I've seen the crowd that is walking around the garage area, the crowd that is milling around on Pit Lane, the fan that is sitting in the stands. I'm here observing the reaction to Tux and to Linux.

Gaim, er, Pidgin, finally hits 2.0

  • Linux.com; By Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on May 12, 2007 4:35 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
It's the release that Gaim users have been waiting for since December 2005. After seven beta releases, several interface revamps, and a name change, Pidgin 2.0 is finally available in the wild. It's an improvement over the Gaim 1.5 series, but it's disappointing that after all that time, voice support for instant messaging networks that support that feature is still absent.

Giving OpenVZ a Try

OpenVZ has made a live Linux CD for users to try out its virtualization technology as it continues to work its way into the virtualizaiton mainstream.

No matter what people on this site may think, Penguin Pete does have a very good point. If tux500 isn't getting posted on slashdot, then it will never gain community momentum.
