But we also know that things don't always happen the way they're supposed to, and we're realistic about that point. We don't believe that this latest ruling was a reflection of the facts that were involved in the case. And the way the system works, we get a chance to put up an appeal," said SCO CEO Darl McBride.
A wide variety of tools is available to help programmers understand the cache and memory use of a program. Modern processors have performance monitoring hardware that can be used. Some events are hard to measure exactly, so there is also room for simulation. When it comes to higher-level functionality, there are special tools to monitor the execution of a process. We will introduce a set of commonly used tools available on most Linux systems.
When deer hunting season begins in Mississippi, or its time for the alligator lottery to start down in Florida, sportsmen flock to the Internet to order their licenses through companies like Automated License Systems (ALS). To keep its servers running reliably, ALS's Infrastructure Manager Rich Edwards uses Red Hat Linux and servers from Levanta, no questions asked.
Lets put the distro wars to an end and all work together. I know we may work on different distros, packages, and repos but as long as we don't put each other down or say we are better than others we stand a fighting chance.
For the past two months, the AMD release train has been running full speed ahead as they introduced their new driver code-base and last month had dropped in the AIGLX support. However, this month the AMD train has taken an intermediate stop as this closed-source driver embarks on its next journey. As always, we have all of the details for you on this month's ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux display driver release.

"Each one of us is just a link in the chain, just a node in a network. Each contributes what we can to build something larger than ourselves."
Mythbuntu is a relatively new Ubuntu derivative aimed squarely at the HTPC enthusiasts. The distro consists of modified versions of XFCE/Xubuntu and MythTV. While MythTV has always been one of the best HTPC platforms around, it certainly hasn’t been one of the the easiest to install. With Mythbuntu 7.10, all that is starting to change.
The Nokia N800 takes advantage of Linux’s ability to scale down to a small footprint to run efficiently in company devices, offering a great deal of general-purpose functionality for developers. In this Linux on board series root inside the Nokia N800 phone/Internet tablet/Webcam and see how to get started building applications by way of a working example.
I installed BLAG 70000 on an old 450MHz box with 192 MB of RAM. You might just be interested to know how it turned out.

Gogh is an extremely lightweight drawing program designed for pressure-sensitive devices. Despite its simplicity, it packs in a lot of features and a lot of fun. You can download Gogh packages from the project's Web site. The latest release is 0.1.2.1.

You do need to have PyGTK, PyXML, and gnome-python installed. All are run-of-the-mill Python packages, though, so check your distribution's package management system.
There's a feeling of inexhaustible energy radiating through the world of open-source VoIP. And the more we learn, the more we discover. We recently had the opportunity to speak with Marc Fribush, president and COO of newly fledged service provider Aretta Communications, and got the lowdown on NetPBX, this organization's vision of phone service for small companies.
The ongoing circus that is the OOXML adoption process in ISO/IEC JTC 1 has helped expose the cracks in the traditional process. Unfortunately, while the consortia that set most IT standards are independent of the traditional process for most purposes, they still have to return to gain the types of global certifications that some governments look for. It's time for consortia to cut the cord completely, and form their own global organization.

Microsoft's rivalry with Google heated up considerably this past year when rumors surfaced that Google might release its own operating system to compete with Windows. Has Google finally jumped into the fray with its own OS? Unfortunately, no; gOS is not a "Google OS" nor is it affiliated with Google (though Desktop Linux has reported that Google has seen gOS and approved inclusion of the Google toolbar with the operating system).
At Tectonic we're confirmed Ubuntu fans with the occasional copy of Xubuntu thrown onto the older hardware lying around. Tell us what your favourite Ubuntu flavour is.
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure Snort (an intrusion detection system (IDS)) from source, BASE (Basic Analysis and Security Engine), MySQL, and Apache2 on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon). Snort will assist you in monitoring your network and alert you about possible threats. Snort will output its log files to a MySQL database which BASE will use to display a graphical interface in a web browser.
