Or, rather, you can place your pre-order. Flash the cash, and you will at some undetermined but real soon time get a boxed version, a manual and 90 days installation support thrown in.

When the Linux Foundation emerged from the collision of the Open Software Development Labs (ODSL) and the Free Standards Group in January 2007, cynical observers described it, with some justification, as "yet another Linux knitting circle". Probably more than any other software phenomenon, Linux has generated a plethora of lobbying groups, alliances and standards organizations. This applies especially to what is growing into one of the most important development areas for Linux - mobile devices.
Some lawsuits begin quietly, others are launched with great fanfare. The Software Freedom Law Center and two BusyBox developers have recently decided to take the latter approach to address a GPL compliance problem.
Open source has been the driving force behind a British software company's global growth - except in its home market. What's the problem?
Accessing your home server safely can be problematic, especially if you don't have a fixed IP address, but with Linux, DynDNS, PAM, and NX Free you can create a safe remote access path to your machine. A few months ago, I had to travel from my hometown of Montevideo, Uruguay, to New York. As I would be staying abroad a few weeks, I had to make sure I could access my home server safely. Despite Linux's stability, I had to allow for my family having problems back home, and I couldn't depend on giving instructions over the phone or by messaging.
Sun Microsystems has issued patches for several vulnerabilities in its Java Runtime Environment that leave users on Windows, Linux and Solaris wide open. By our count, there are 11 separate vulnerabilities plaguing versions 6, 5, 1.4 and 1.3 of the JRE, Sun said on its security blog.
Ontario Linux Fest is just over a week away, and the final pieces are coming together. We'll be at The Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Road, on Saturday the 13th of October for a full day of Open Source festivities.
How do you take the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.) processor from an off-the-shelf Sony PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) and use it to construct a piece of Linux®-based laboratory equipment (in essence, take the Cell/B.E. from fab to hab to lab)? In this series, Lewin Edwards shows you how to go from game console to simple audio-bandwidth spectrum analyzer and function generator. In this article, the author shows you how to build on the infrastructure from Part 1 to make the system into a fully operational, if primitive, spectrum analyzer.
openSUSE 10.3 was released today October 4, 2007 and I am going to take a First Look at this Linux OS. It's GNOME desktop is what I installed off the DVD and I have a few pictures plus a short flash video of the desktop.
Prowling the x86 server warpath, Sun today revealed its roadmap of products set to bring the company fully into the virtualization brouhaha. The server maker's new xVM virtualization platform will span across its server, storage, and networking product lines. The first offering will be comprised of a hypervisor and management software set to be released next year. Sun laid down the roadmap basics at a press meeting in San Francisco.
With this article I want to point out how Free Software provides a secure environment and how important the community is. Security is not only limited to "technology to keep crackers away from your data", but it also is about secured freedom.
There was a lot of interest generated by my last article titled "Build a (Very) Inexpensive Solaris 10 Workstation". Several topics were brought up in this feedback, among which these two questions "what tools does Solaris have for backups?" and "is it possible to make a restore DVD for Solaris?" struck me as particularly important. For reasons of my own, which I divulge in the Purpose section, I decided to pursue these questions and write an article.

The results may surprise you.
