The Continent's regulators are scrutinizing the success of Apple's digital media platform, claiming that iTunes should be compatible with all MP3 players
At the end of this month, most of the doctors (those in the main office) will be changing management such that they become part of a nearby hospital. That hospital, in turn, is part of a much larger multi-state healthcare network. So the hospital is going to redo the network connections, bringing hospital-level security. Everything has to be standardized. And guess what? There is"zero possibility" that a linux server will be allowed on that network.
The Open Technology Group, Inc. A leading provider of Open Source training solutions, announces its expansion into California markets, with its offering of open-enrollment PostgreSQL Administration and other training programs.
AOL on Monday expanded its Open AIM initiative, adding support for PC-to-PC calling and new operating systems including Mac OS X and Linux. The Open AIM program provides a platform for developers to build plug-ins and custom clients that take advantage of AOL's instant messaging network.
A tax authority in Germany is migrating 12,000 desktops to SuSE Linux and the open source KDE desktop.
The project is "one of the most important in the history of IT" at the office, according to the regional tax office in Hanover. The systems are moving from Solaris x86 version 8, which the organisation has been running since 2002.

This is a very frank interview with Jeff Dike - the author of User Mode Linux. Jeff talks about the advantages and drawbacks of UML with respect to other virtualization technologies and what significant role it will play in the fast changing scenario.

The folks at Mises.org have collected a bunch of articles, both technical and considering the economic impact, about the regulation and re-regulation of the 'Net that is presently going on.
Virtual private networks (VPN) let remote users connect back to corporate networks over encrypted links. Many VPNs are built with proprietary technology and can be tricky and expensive to set up. For a small business or an individual who needs a simple way to securely access remote networks, setting up a true VPN might be prohibitively expensive in terms of both money and time. Let's look at two simple approaches that bring you transparency without the cost. All you need is Secure Shell (SSH) access to a server on the network you're trying to access.
Surfing the Web has meant using much the same technology for years. Now startups are working on new ways to navigate the Net.
I’m going to make no excuses here — I was a chardonnay socialist and it’s time I came out and everyone gathered together and gave me some support. I have, from the time I was a little child been dreaming of hammers and sickles and the like, had a knee-jerk reaction to: big corporations (evil), government (evil), conservatism (evil), and stiletto heels (rank consumerist EVIL). So if you were to say “Microsoft”, I’d say “Where? Let me grab me my stake and crucifix!”. However, as I’ve aged and discovered social theory, I’ve realised that “evil” doesn’t really cut it. Systems themselves aren’t evil, because they are run by people. And, some of these people are selfish bloodsucking capitalist pigs (sorry, force of habit). But some of the other people come up with brilliant and devastating ideas that can make the world warmer and fuzzier, and then other people implement those ideas and everybody gets excited.
I returned from a wonderful vacation in Florida to discover that my broadband cable service was no longer working. After some troubleshooting, replacing some coax lines and connectors, I ended up having to replace my Linksys cable modem/router combo unit. I ended up going with a D-Link DCM-202 cable modem and a Linksys WRTSL54GS, which is a router, firewall, 802.11g access point, 4-port switch, and even a USB port for external media storage. However, the best part about the WRTSL54GS is that it is supported by OpenWRT, a free software GNU/Linux distribution built to replace the standard Linksys firmware. Obviously, doing so will void your warranty. But in doing so, you will gain more functionality.
Novell on Monday plans to officially launch Bandit, an open-source identity management project that was quietly started earlier this year.
The review we didn't want to write. It's buggy, it's unreliable, and it's definitely not polished. Dapper Drake doesn't deliver as promised. Now where did I put that copy of Suse 10.1? [Here's an Ubuntu review that LXer's readers might find aligns more closely with their own experiences - dcparris]
The Free Software Foundation's (FSF) Defective By Design campaign against Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies ran into difficulties when it targeted Apple Stores across the United States on Saturday, June 10. As many as half the events were disrupted by security guards or police, while the campaign as a whole had little success in attracting mainstream media coverage. Despite the difficulties, organizers judged the event a success, both in mobilizing members of the two-week-old campaign and in educating the general public about the implications of DRM.
Steven Titch, Senior Fellow of the Heartland Institute, fans more flames in the Massachusetts ODF debate. [Look for LXer's response later this week - dcparris]
June 12th, 2006: An open-source web services startup, WSO2, has raised U.S.$4 million in capital from Intel and along with it, the perception of open-source companies as viable businesses.
The over 100,000 day laborers across the United States who stand on street corners and in parking lots each day, waiting to be picked up for a day job, are in fact harbingers of the Web 2.0 economy.
OK, so I admit: I can’t get enough news about SCO. It’s like the best and worst parts of a soap opera, train wreck, and slapstick comedy all rolled up into one big, sticky ball. This week’s entry into their history of shame is a claim to own the standard Unix executable file format, which is ridiculous for more reasons than I feel like going into right now. What I took away from the whole circus, though, is that you’re playing with fire if you entrust your company or personal computing to proprietary software vendors.
