One of the leaders in ensuring Web accessibility has long been the W3C, which has launched accessibility projects of many types for much of its existence. Last week the W3C announced the lastest release in these efforts, and a good example of the quiet but important work that is ongoing at the W3C and a small number of other organizations.
While you are booking your travel for Akademy 2007, have a thought about whether you could host Akademy 2008. We are looking for a large institution to host our world summit sometime in the summer of 2008. There needs to be a dedicated local team to organise an event like this who will work in partnership with KDE e.V.
NeoOffice, the Mac OS X native-ized port of the OpenOffice.org productivity suite, is now at version 2.1. This release is marked by several key improvements, some inherited from OpenOffice.org, and some native to OS X.
NEW YORK - Although it has already taken nearly four decades to get this far in building the Internet, some university researchers with the federal government's blessing want to scrap all that and start over.
As the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project works toward a release this year of its low-cost laptop aimed at children in developing nations, work has continued on the device's Linux-based operating system and on Sugar, the innovative user interface for the radical new laptop design.
To paraphrase Mr. Rogers, "can you say whirlwind tour?" That's what the latest offering in the "In a Nutshell" series from O'Reilly reads like. That's not a pejorative statement; there's just a ton of information crammed in between the covers of this book. Actually, it is something of an experiment and doesn't quite follow the traditional pattern of this series.
Learn how to use best practices and tools to keep your testing teams aligned with business priorities.
The Linux kernel is released under the GPLv2 license, not the "GPL version 2, or any later version", but explicitly GPL version 2. It means that the Linux kernel source won't be available under the GPLv3 unless the kernel developers make an explicit change to allow it. And, it appears the kernel developers aren't planning to make that change. So what's the likely outcome?
I just finished taking my first course over at Oreilly School and I must say that I am pleased with the course. The first course that I took was a “brush up” course in Linux administration (Linux/Unix 1: The Unix file system).
Practical, hands-on exercises teach you how to record automated performance tests, use data-driven techniques to ensure randomization, play-back tests, and evaluate real-time performance reports.
Yesterday, I issued an invitation to both the Show Us The Code and Microsoft communities regarding a virtual “sit down” for the May 1, 2007 deadline. Yugma’s web collaboration software would enable key players from both groups to join a live session and present their sides.
WinaXe Plus X-Server for Windows allows both Windows and Linux to be run on the same desktop at the same time. Users can access and run their remote applications from the Windows desktop and switch between operating systems as if switching between two Windows applications.
Microsoft's plan to phase out OEM shipments of Windows XP, the predecessor to the new Windows Vista platform, is not sitting well with some observers. Chatters on Silicon Valley.com cited issues with the suitability of Vista on existing machines and said they might just go to Linux instead.
A couple of days ago I asked a question of Technocrat, that question was "How do I, a non coder, tell good code from bad?" and had the rider "Do not tell me to ask another coder." Despite more responses than most other articles, I did not come away with an answer that I could give to anyone else.

If you disagree with what we are doing, you don't have to participate in it. You have every right to be vocal about your attitude and opinion on projects such as this. But to come onto my website and "flashporn" it like you did two days ago, that is unexcusable. The idiots that did it made the mistake of congratulating themselves in a forum on myspace and I was able to google it and find out exactly who they are...I mean besides idiots. You have no right to lie, gossip and damage our efforts because of your Abby Hoffman set of political ideals.
A bug has been found in the MadWiFi Linux kernel device driver for Atheros-based WiFi chipsets that can allow an attacker to take control of a laptop - even when it is not on a WiFi network. The MadWiFi development team have released a patch. However, not all Linux distributions have yet built the patch into their code.
Since Microsoft can't get the bugs out of Vista, why not turn the code over to the people who've shown they can fix intractable software: the open-source community.
