Corsair is known for their high-performance system memory and for the past two years or so, we have seen very innovative flash products from this memory leader. The Corsair Flash Voyager marked the era of waterproof flash drives only to be succeeded by the Flash Voyager GT. Both of these USB flash drive series not only performed great and handled all of our durability tests, but it was also backed by a ten-year warranty and official support for Linux. Earlier this year, however, Corsair redefined durable flash drives by unleashing the Flash Survivor GT. In our premiere review of the Corsair Flash Survivor GT 8GB, the flash drive was not only fast but had withstood our harsh torture treatment, which consisted of letting the Flash Survivor GT rest at the bottom of an 8 foot deep pool, smashing it with a hammer, and even boiled it in a pot of water.
The Ubuntu Linux team last week announced Hardy Heron, the next release of the popular open source Linux operating system to include long-term support.

Linux Gazette is a volunteer-run monthly web magazine dedicated to two simple ideas: making Linux a little more fun, and sharing ideas and discoveries.
There are two updates for the beginning of the month. The nettest suite and etu programs have received enough changes to warrant full releases. Nettest has branched and released to 2.2 with make cleanups, code cleanups and more greater (and likely unfullfilled) plans. The etu utility now supports non jpeg formats in a very proper way: I would argue that it is perfect.
Computerworld SIngapore reports that Linux powered smart phones will have 30 percent of the market by 2012. Bill Andad argues that with the Motorola Razr2 V8 the year of the Linux mobile phone has already arrived.
Lately I’ve been looking to pick up a new contract or even possibly move back into a long term corporate position. My résumé (CV for those outside the United States) is, I think, fairly impressive. I am a competent systems administrator and security geek with over 27 years of experience in the industry. I’ve had lots of calls from recruiters: some quite good, some not so good, and some, well…
Patrick Winnertz, Debian developer to-be, writes in his blog that he was able to get all legal stuff sorted out and with the help of a "sponsor" (means: a Debian developer) uploaded Virtualbox to the "Main" repository of Debian.

OpenBSD project creator Theo de Raadt detailed his concerns regarding BSD-licensed code and Dual-BSD/GPL-licensed code being re-licensed under only the GPL as previously discussed here, "honestly, I was greatly troubled by the situation, because even people like Alan Cox were giving other Linux developers advice to ... break the law. And furthermore, there are even greater potential risks for how the various communities interact."
So, you want to be a kernel hacker. Before you go down that path, or get involved with any other free or open source development project, you should know that it's often a wild, raucous place where -- no matter what level of coding skill you possess -- your tolerance for criticism or rejection might constantly be tested. Even Linus Torvalds isn't immune to criticism.
Most of the time developers forget to checkin or update the file/folders from server, With this bash script file will automatically update from server, then lock and open in vi editor whenever developer save the file it will ask for commit message and checkin in server after that it will unlock for other developers.

The next Ubuntu Linux distribution with long-term support, "Hardy Heron," Ubuntu 8.04, will be released in April 2008. Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, like Red Hat with Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell with openSUSE and SUSE Linux, releases both a community version and a version for businesses or individuals who want to rely on a distribution with long-term technical support. Unlike Red Hat and Novell, though, Canonical doesn't separate the two versions with different names.

"I've long hated the non-killability of tasks accessing a dead NFS server," Matthew Wilcox said along with a prototype patch to fix the issue based on a 2002 posting by Linus Torvalds. Matthew added, "I've only added one real user of the killable concept to this patch -- try_lock_page(). However, this is enough for 'cat */*/*' to be killable with a ^C when I unplug the ethernet cord between it and the nfs server."
