Recently I needed to set up a server with all the usual server components -- Web, mail, and file sharing. It needed to be rock-solid and reliable. I didn't want to download 4GB of software from the Net, so I turned to CentOS' Single Server CD.
Novell officials are welcoming the news that Red Hat is planning a packaged Linux desktop solution, which they say validates their existing desktop-to-data center offering.

The newer Linux desktop environments with their flashy graphics require newer powerful hardware to go with them. But Linux is still well-suited to get more mileage out of that old machine you still have lying around. So don't throw it out. Here's a way to breath new life into old hardware.
Work on GPL Version 3 continues, but the debate between Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds over new features is less important than the rewriting of the rules that GPL has imposed on the landscape.
Are you looking for a Windows alternative for serious office work? Many people are starting to wonder about their non-Microsoft operating system options, especially given Windows Vista's hefty hardware demands, upgrade costs and license restrictions. Scot Finnie, Computerworld's online editorial director, has already examined using Mac OS X in the workplace. Now, I take a hard look at Linux by using an enterprise distribution exclusively at work. I'm not simply playing with a test machine; I've been using Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10+ day in, day out to do my job as Computerworld's online managing editor.
Research in Motion (RIM) systems architect Ian Brown wanted to give his administrators the same central identity management authentication functionality for their Linux and Unix machines that they enjoyed with Microsoft Windows Server and Active Directory -- but it just wasn't happening.
Trolltech Qtopia has been chosen by Skype as the preferred platform for connecting the Skype user interface to the operating system in Skype Certified WiFi handsets and a variety of other devices that deliver a Skype experience. Skype works with handset manufacturers who wish to add Skype capabilities to their devices. As this business expands, it becomes increasingly important that handsets share the same application platform. The Qtopia platform will reduce the time-to-market for Skype devices while ensuring that handsets can be updated easily.

Here is an opinion piece about FOSS and the IHEConnectathon:'...This year IBM supported the open source openEMR application participation fees. We will probably not be able to do it next year. I know of open source applications that wish to go to the '08 Connectathon (openEMR, Mirth, Tolven, MirrorMed, and more are coming). They have lots of motivation that comes with considerable barriers in the shape of travel expenses plus the investment in integration, implementation, and passing the MESA tests. From talks with them I understand that the 8K$ registration fees is something they will not be able to swallow, and I assume that it will prevent them from participating in the event...'
Oracle Corp. has gotten off to a "very strong start" with its support program for users of Red Hat Inc.'s Enterprise Linux, according to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. Ellison announced the program back in October at Oracle's OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, but since then the company has declined to comment on the progress of the support offering aimed at both Oracle and non-Oracle users.
"A reasoning which suggests that merely making GNU/Linux "just work", even if we need to put proprietary software in by default, will open the doors to the mass market is flawed. It can't get us this far as long as people are required to actually install it to be able to use it." Now let's build some 100% proprietary fat free PCs, shall we?

Many Linux users have expressed concern over ATI's Catalyst Linux drivers for various reasons, but most of these users seem to be taking the wrong approach. These users express their disapproval and seek improvements by flaming on forums, forming petitions, bombarding the BugZilla, and using the ATI feedback form. However, this isn't really effective. On Michael's Phoronix web-blog he has outlined some strategies for actively engaging ATI/AMD's OEM/ODM/AIB partners in seeking Linux display driver improvements. He also states that at least one major OEM is interested in improved Linux drivers, but they are afraid of adverse effects to the Windows Catalyst drivers.
The APRIL, a French association promoting open source software, has requested the annulment of a decree which specifies that possessing or using technologies that circumvent technological protection measures for copyrighted works (thereafter TPMs or DRMs for Digital Rights Management) should be punished by a €750 fine.
One of the headaches of introducing an open source solution to a business is the work that has to be done in making a solution fit-for-purpose once the software has been acquired. Novell is hoping to make that process slightly easier with a thin-client version of Suse Linux that comes with a tool third parties can use to create a finished, tailored system.
Your editor has long enjoyed photography. As a high school student, he even pondered, briefly, the idea of pursuing photography as a career; for better or for worse, common sense won out and your editor went to engineering school instead. But taking pictures has remained an active hobby, even if it has tended to degrade to the creation of a stream of snapshots of the kids for grandparent consumption in recent years. The advent of digital photography has brought a couple of your editor's passions back together, with only one thing - free time - missing. But, your editor has discovered, one of the keys to the finding of free time is to take an activity of interest and redefine it as "work." Thus, this article.
