First, blogs moved from personal platforms to corporate tools. Now, wouldn't it be great to put social networking to work in your organization? Elgg is an open source application for creating social networks. It can be customized with themes and extended with plugins to work with other social networks or plug into an organization's existing wiki and forum boards. It lets users collaborate on projects within organizations or share notes within a university.
Home Automation projects can always use tiny, silent PCs, and here's a new one. The little disk-less Linutop PC is around £230 and runs Xubuntu from a USB stick... "Linutop has Linux-based diskless computer. It offers has completely silent, low-power operation in year extremely small package. Its hand purpose is to surfing the Internet.
Mozilla Corp. is still wrestling with adding a security feature to Firefox that its browser rival, Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer 7, uses on Windows Vista to keep malware from hijacking computers. In Vista, IE7 uses a technique Microsoft calls Protected Mode -- another name for "low rights" -- that blocks disk access to all but a temporary-files folder. The idea is that if an exploit -- a drive-by download, for instance -- attacks IE7 through a browser vulnerability, it can't install code on the PC's drive.
Open-Xchange, a provider of open source collaboration software, has inaugurated the opening of the Open-Xchange Community project and the availability of source code and development documentation for its latest AJAX-based e-mail and groupware technology.

It's free! You can tailor it to your own needs! There's a distro for every need! Sure, Linux is tempting, but getting started isn't so easy. eWEEK Labs offers advice for getting your head, and your organization, around Linux.
Large development projects can be difficult to manage. With multiple developers committing source code to one source tree, there are going to be times when code breaks and will not work. Running automated builds and tests on code can drastically reduce the time and effort developers spend fixing issues by catching them early. This process is called continuous integration. This article provides an overview of how to implement continuous integration in a PHP project using tools written in PHP.
At the core of open source is the belief that mysterious others assure the quality of an open source product. However, few actually have the skills required to do such a review. If, in the case of Wikipedia -- where there should be a lot of experts -- you still can't trust the content, the people or the quality, then how can you trust that open source works where such a review is less likely?
Software continues to be one of the largest challenges to the Linux parallel computing market. When considering parallel and multi-core computing, questions about software are often the most difficult. To help set expectations and ensure a successful project, the important questions to ask (and some answers!) about parallel software are presented.
The time for adoption has never looked better, but unfortunately, we are still sitting on some very serious problems that will continue to make sure that Linux is seen as "unusable" as possible to those who are in the mainstream world.
