The Linux-based Nokia 770 Internet tablet is an intriguing gadget for Linux enthusiasts
and professional embedded developers. Though it lacks personal information manager (PIM) apps one would expect from a palmtop-sized device, it is instead pitched as an “Internet tablet”, providing applications such as Web browser and an e-mail client.
Novell is releasing Basilisk Lizard, its codename for Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of openSUSE 10.2. RC1 is intended to help Novell fix "shipment blockers" and is, says, the last development build before v10.2 of the Linux distro hits the streets in its final version.
In the latest multi-million dollar training simulators, pilots get to shoot the bad guys out of the virtual sky, while infantry men practice driving their vehicles over virtual desert terrain. Today's sophisticated virtual trainers immerse the soldier in ever more realistic combat situations.
A vulnerability has been identified in GNU Tar, which could be exploited by malicious people to conduct directory traversal attacks.

You've read more than enough already about how Novell and Microsoft signed an agreement that's supposed to help Novell sell Linux to Microsoft customers and help Microsoft customers integrate Linux -- as long as it's Novell Linux -- into their IT environments without fear of patent lawsuits. Part of the yammer was an open letter from Novell's CEO claiming that deal didn't really mean what you thought it did, followed by a statement from Microsoft that said Novell's CEO didn't really mean to say what he said or was wrong about some of it. Or something. Then Mark Shuttleworth jumped into the mess by offering a new, Microsoft-free home for openSUSE developers who didn't want to truck with Novell any longer because of its Microsoft deal.
The Assemblée Nationale, an institution that is meaningful to any freedom-loving, truth and justice-seeking french citizen, chooses Linux, OpenOffice.org and OpenDocument on its desktops.
