Gplv3 to mandate device hackability?

Draft GNU GPLv3 (General Public License) language would require embedded systems and devices incorporating GPLv3-licensed software to be user-modifiable, stated license author Richard Stallman in a recent speech. The draft license's "anti-TiVo-isation" rider drew criticism early on from Linus Torvalds, who called it "insane." Where do LinuxDevices readers stand?

Mobius Loop Technology Promises Cooler, Quieter and Cheaper Data Centers

  • Email Battles; By BJ Gillette (Posted by zanek on May 11, 2006 10:00 PM EDT)

Until AMD undermined Intel's PC hegemony, most designers believed faster processors had to eat more power and create more heat. Since then, the industry has aimed to reduce power and cooling costs, while continuing to build ever more powerful processors. And a tiny startup is applying the mobius loop concept in an innovative way to assure that more powerful, less power-hungry processors keep coming.

Ututo-e: "The only free distribution" revisited

A year ago, I reviewed Ututo-e, an Argentinian distribution based on Gentoo. Ututo-e is known mainly as the only GNU/Linux distribution endorsed by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation (FSF). This endorsement is based on the fact that Ututo-e, in the words of Peter Brown of the FSF, "makes a commitment to follow the philosophy of the FSF as to what makes a distribution ethically free software." Last year, this endorsement seemed premature, because Ututo-e, while promising in some places, was buggy in many more. A year later, the 2006 release of Ututo XS is more polished, especially in its desktop and selection of administration tools, but its English version still falls below the standard of leading distributions such as Debian or Fedora Core.

Interview: Bruce Perens on GPLv3 embedded consequences

GPLv3 will likely be adopted for Linux kernel, according to luminary Bruce Perens (pictured at left). "It's a negotiation... I'm expecting the embedded manufacturers and the Free Software Foundation and Linus to get the license to a point they can all live with," Perens says.

Networking 101: Understanding Internet Governance

  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Charlie Schluting (Posted by tuxchick2 on May 11, 2006 6:04 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
The Internet is a wild and unruly place. When people talk about Internet governance, the conversation is normally related to IP allocation and domain name management, rather than censorship or control. The Internet actually is tightly managed with regards to network allocation. This edition of Networking 101 will clear up those mysterious organizational acronyms and explain what their purpose really is.

A Tale of Two Press Releases: Big Lies and Objective Journalism

It's not my goal at this blog to nominate myself as the official FUD Ombudsman for the contest between the ODF standard and Microsoft's Open XML (especially since the connotations of the name "Ombudsman" in this saga ain't what they used to be). But...

Cacti: SNMP Monitoring Without All the Prickles

  • Enterprise Networking Planet; By Charlie Schluting (Posted by tuxchick2 on May 11, 2006 2:54 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
As our fetish for monitoring tools begins to subside, we realize that one of the neatest monitoring tools available has nearly been forgotten. Cacti is “a complete frontend to RRDTool,” as they say, which makes SNMP and script-based monitoring very worthwhile. In this article we’d like to talk a bit about Cacti and how it can be used to create some excitingly useful graphs of various data

The Script Reloaded: Recognizing "Them"

  •; By Andy Updegrove (Posted by Andy_Updegrove on May 11, 2006 2:07 PM EDT)
"Public Relations" is one of those funny phrases that has very little to do with what it really means. At sixty thousand feet, it's about influencing opinion, which (at that altitude) doesn't sound all that bad. But when it gets down into the bushes, it starts to become a bit less innocuous, and more unsavory.

What Price Will Linux Pay to Be MainStream?

For those who believe this way…for those who think that our differences can be settled at the Alter of Port 25 and those sincere friends with only our best interests at heart… Misconceive this.

Oracle Seeing Red Hat

Oracle (ORCL:Nasdaq - commentary - research - Cramer's Take) has been running roughshod over the enterprise-software world of late, winning gobs of market share by buying up the competition in an $18 billion acquisition spree. Now it appears that the database giant is gearing up to make a run at a very different sort of enemy: Red Hat, the pre-eminent seller of Linux.

Vista: Very Interesting Security Times Ahead

Who would have thought just a few months ago that Microsoft would start to bite the hands it feeds. The security industry is running around in circles trying to head off the speculation that Microsoft might finally start to eat into the substantial profits they make out of plugging security holes once it releases its new operating system Vista.

Rotten Effort

Last week, Dale Frantz, CIO at Auto Warehousing Co., brought to [..] attention an alarming business practice that shows Microsoft at its shoddy and arrogant worst.

Nexxim and Ansoft Designer for Linux

Ansoft announced the availability of Nexxim v3 and Ansoft Designer v3 for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux v.3 and Sun Solaris 8 and 9 operating systems. Nexxim is the company's circuit simulation software for high-performance IC design and signal-integrity analysis. Ansoft Designer provides an integrated schematic and design management front-end for complex analog, RF and mixed-signal applications. In addition to Linux support, Nexxim v3 adds phase and time-variant noise, autonomous source harmonic balance and integration with Cadence ADE/Spectre RF. Adding accurate phase and time-varying noise analyses to Nexxim is critical to the full characterization of communication ICs.
