As Linux laptop use - particularly the proliferation of Linux-based smartphone and handheld devices - has grown, making these devices wireless has become a challenge for some users. When 90% of the world runs on another operating system, getting wireless LAN device drivers that are reliable and bug-free isn't always easy.

Linux-powered Nokia 770 handheld applications

Most organizations aren't ready to migrate to a wireless, network-centric, thin hardware, server/client model, which makes the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet a bit ahead of its time. This handheld device has a basic browser, email client, and multimedia player, but the real beauty of this Linux-based system is its ability to expand it functionality by installing a limited but growing list of applications.

The right way to run a Wi-Fi cafe

One of the benefits of living in a place as exotic as Abilene, Texas, is that it presents you with a choice of not one but three Internet-connected coffee shops. Last week, I spent an afternoon in each, scouting for the place I'll go to hole up and get work done this summer when the triple-digit temperatures hit, when mentally calculating the air conditioning costs begins to prove too distracting at home. I haven't yet reached a final decision, but I have some choice words for anyone weighing the idea of starting up a new Internet coffee shop.

At the second international GPLv3 conference in Brazil, the GPLv3 road show continued. As well as a good presentation, there was an interesting Q&A session with RMS.

Nine things you should know about Nautilus

The Nautilus program in GNOME is not only the default file manager, it creates and manages the desktop. While it looks simple on the surface, there is a lot of hidden power under the shell. The latest version of Nautilus is 2.14.0, which is included in Fedora Core 5. That's the one I poked with a stick.

Trout Creek, Montana hardly seems like a place one would expect to find a center of Linux learning. Please do not tell Mike Weber of SpiderTools that. He spent the last six years developing one of the more robust training facilities in the US.

Mambo Open Source CMS Lead Developer Quits

York, UK – Mambo lead developer Martin Brampton has said that he is severing all ties with the Open Source project. His departure — which is eerily similar to the departure of an entire development team last year — comes in the wake of him finding himself unable to continue due to matters of conscience.

[That's the thing about FOSS projects - attempts to absolute control every little detail will fail. It's one of those hard lessons that you have to let go to gain. Kudos to Brampton! - dcparris]

  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups: Linux
PCLinuxOS, simply put, is one of the easiest to use, stable, consistent, and enjoyable distros out there.
I honestly feel that it has few equals at this point in time.
MiniME proves to be no exception, just smaller.

The Rise of Independent Media

What would happen if anybody could produce radio or TV programming as easily as they consume it?
What would happen if the natural limits to broadcasting went away?

Those questions only had sci-fi answers when I was a kid growing up in New Jersey, not far from the swamps later re-labeled"meadowlands", after a sports complex by that name appeared alongside Paterson Plank Road. In those days, back in the'50s and early'60s, I was like any other geeky kid who had better luck with science than with girls: I sublimated unrequited desire for the latter into preoccupation with the former. Since computers were still captive to big business, big defense and big science, I focused my science obsessions on big radio.
