Openbox: A lightweight window manager

Most Linux-based distributions for the masses have either GNOME, KDE, or both desktops, yet the startup times and resources required by both GNOME and KDE make them unsuitable for old or lower-end hardware.

Running VMware Player under Linux

After testing VMware's new Player on Windows a few weeks ago, I wanted to see how it performs on Linux. While the Player is a great tools for Windows users who want to see what its like to run Linux, the inverse of that equation doesn't play out the same way. Curiously, Microsoft wasn't interested in loaning me a Windows XP image, but that was OK. I tried another operating system instead -- a Linux distribution that looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Capturing real-world knowledge with Protégé OWL

Take a well resourced, 10-year-old open source project with a global user community. Add support for World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Semantic Web standards and some hard-core computer science research, and what do you get? In the case of Protégé OWL the answer is the best application I've seen for modeling, capturing, and sharing knowledge about the real world -- the kind of fuzzy, variable and unpredictable "stuff about stuff" that's hard to squeeze into the nice neat rectangular tables of a conventional database.
