Ubuntu Kills Linux, Then Self, Dell Suspected of Foul Play.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ... DELL Ubuntu Linux? Just one problem though...This is Linux-fever journalism at its worst, and an example of a simple lie being easier for people to swallow than the complex truth. Now I want you to take a deep breath at this point, because you’re about the get a sick feeling in your stomach. That feeling of utter hopelessness. And it’s going to come in shock waves, one after the other, over and over...

Community vs. Corporate Linux: The Coming Divide

  • MadPenguin.org; By Matt Hartley (Posted by gsh on Aug 13, 2007 9:34 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Linux
There is in fact a coming divide that will hit the Linux community like a freight train. The battle lines have already been drawn, and companies that support Linux, such as Canonical, will eventually find themselves fiercely pitted against companies like Linspire, who only a short time ago, entered into an agreement of cooperation. A clash between the different versions of the GPL have already begun to show their roots , and luckily, thus far, has been pretty much transparent. What I want to know is how all of this is going to go down when it comes time for the enforcement of such things.

Citrix set to snatch XenSource

Analysts at Credit Suisse last week issued a research note saying that Citrix is - or at least should be - in the market for hypervisor software key to virtualizing both PCs and servers. Either XenSource or Virtual Iron - developers of the open source Xen hypervisor - would stand as attractive buys for Citrix, according to the analysts. They reckon such software could help Citrix as it looks to expand a software empire based on the flexible use of server-side code.

Novell's Victory Over SCO Could Have Downside For Linux Users

Linux backers are reacting with glee to all of this news. An anonymous blogger who goes by the name 'Pamela Jones' on the anti-SCO Web site Groklaw said over the weekend that he or she would "eat chocolate" to celebrate Novell's victory. But hold the Godiva and Toblerone for a moment. If I'm a Linux user, do I really want SCO v. IBM to be called off without a definitive ruling on SCO's claims?

AMD 8.40.4 Linux Display Driver

Last month marked the introduction of Fedora 7 support with the fglrx 8.39.4 ATI/AMD driver but not much more than that was to be found aside from an undocumented XML file. This driver did also present watermark problems that led to the driver being recalled and a corrected driver being pushed out. Today the fglrx 8.40.4 driver has been released and while many had speculated the 8.40 series would mark the introduction of the new Linux driver code-base, that's not the case for 8.40.4 driver. What changes does the 8.40.4 driver hold in store for Linux users? We'll tell you today but there isn't much.

Aptitude v.s. apt-get

Being an Ubuntu/Debian user (yes, I use and advocate both), I have fallen in love with the Advanced Packaging Tool, also known as apt. Before Ubuntu, I played in the world of RPM hell, with distros such as Red Hat itself, Mandrake (as it was called back then), and even SuSE. But if any of you have noticed, apt is 16 different tools that you need to become familiar with, if you are to start learning about your Debian-based distro. I don’t know about you, but doesn’t that seem a bit bass-ackwards?

OpenSUSE 10.3 beta and build service app

Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol.
