I found early versions of Linux weren't very user-friendly, so this time around, I used my 7-year-old son as my test subject. I gave him a little lesson on how to use Mandriva One and off he went. On his own, he was able to boot up the machine and get himself online to his favorite kid Web sites without any problems at all -- meaning today's Linux has a short learning curve.
[Another "I never heard of this Linux thing before" stories. - Scott]

Out of the box Movable Type’s (MT) search engine isn’t terrible. It meets minimum requirements, is fairly accurate, but not much more. The big issue is performance. Under any sort of load, MT’s native search starts to creak and groan, and suck gobs of CPU time.
A new trend is emerging wherein channel partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) are largely turning toward subscription-based platform as against the proprietary model and thus opening ample opportunities for enhanced Linux-based operation, Tirthankar Mitra, head - Channels and SI, Red Hat India said.
Mozilla's Firefox increased its share of the browser market last month at the expense of Microsoft's Internet Explorer and other browsers, according to one set of statistics released this week. But with another set showing that the opposite happened - with Firefox's share dropping in September - it's unclear which figures are correct.
Bill Welty, CIO of the California Air Resources Board, is well-known as an open source evangelist. Today, in Portland, Ore., he spoke at GOSCON 06 -- the Government Open Source Conference -- to a gathering of the faithful.
Embedded software specialist Wind River has hired Sven Dummer to manage its line of Eclipse-based Workbench tools for embedded Linux developers. Dummer joins Wind River from Novell, where he formerly led product management efforts for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
Future iterations of the Palm operating system (OS) will no longer bear that name. Instead--as predicted since Palm sold its PalmSource OS division to Japanese firm Access last year--it is now called Access Linux Platform (ALP).
What do you get when you combine OpenSolaris, the GNU utilities, and Ubuntu? Nexenta -- a GNU-based open source operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and runtime. I took the Alpha 5 release out for a spin to see how well it's progressing. It might sound like an odd combination, but after more than a year of development, it actually works well, and is shaping up to be a very interesting operating system.
On tonight's People Behind KDE we present a coder who has been the driving force behind not only the premier free software database client, Kexi, but also single handedly ported kdelibs to win32. Find out how he achieved such feats of development hights while still breading a heard of crickets for his chameleon in our interview with Jaroslaw Staniek.
Component Templates for Assets and Artifacts is a Java-implemented Eclipse-based toolkit that allows developers to focus on business aspects of the development process instead of the technological.
After years of publicly saying they are an Open Source company, and the 'leading provider of Open Source software for the healthcare industry',Medsphere Corp. has yet to release their core product OpenVistaÂ® as Open Source. It is entirely their right to use the Veterans Affairs VistA codebase, modify, rewrite and not release it to the VistA community. However, holding forth as loudly and as publicly as they have that they are an Open Source company while not releasing their core software, makes me question the sincerity of their claim of being the 'leading provider' of Open Source. Especially in the face of suing the founders of the company for many millions of dollars because they actually released company developed software as open source on Sourceforge.
This tutorial is intended for people with at least basic Unix knowledge, such as mounting file systems and copying files. OpenSSH, an OpenBSD project, is an incredibly secure implementation of the SSH protocol, a way of logging into a remote machine. For users of outdated protocols such as RSH, rlogin, and Telnet, it's an updated, secure replacement. For those who have never used anything like it, SSH can become a very valuable tool.
The latest LugRadio episode features interviews with Waldo Bastian and John Cherry from before Akademy 2006 speaking about what they hoped to get from the conference and what they'll be talking about in their keynotes. Waldo talks about the Portland Project and what desktop cooperation is all about, and John talks about the state of the Linux desktop from OSDL's point of view.
Late last month Linux-Online launched the English edition of Linux XP Desktop. The screenshots look pretty and amazingly similar to Windows XP. As a commercial distro for non-techie desktop users, does it do enough to challenge the likes of Linspire and Xandros?

Hybrid SoCs employing PA technology-based software interfacing to highly customized hardware state machines can help designers unlock the power of application-specific hardware acceleration. Continuing the SoC drawer series, this article provides an overview of on-chip debug hardware and software tools
to make SoC design, implementation, and test easier.
Actually, it was never quite clear why Qualcomm bought Eudora, the old market-leading email program, but it would have been quite understandable if it had been because it foresaw the growth in mobile email, and wanted to bundle something with BREW phones.
Marco Figueiredo used to design supercomputers for NASA, but now he's bringing FOSS and Internet to remote villages in his native Brazil. Find out how and why he's doing this.
