Hi, and welcome to my second of a series of articles on Security Enhanced Linux. My previous article detailed the background of SELinux and explained what makes SELinux such a revolutionary advance in systems security. This week, we'll be discussing how SELinux security contexts work and how policy decisions are made by SELinux.

Jeremy writes: I am very excited to announce that we have shipped version 5 of CrossOver Office. We have added initial support for Microsoft Office 2003, added a powerful new feature we call 'bottles', which lets you manage your Windows applications more easily than ever before, and dramatically improved the installation and execution process of nearly every Windows program.
[If you do not know about this commercial version of WINE, consider taking a look. -Ed.]
Linux desktop play:
Additionally Sun is looking to expand the reach of its Java Desktop System software to cover more flavors of Linux. Sun has a new "JDS partners program" for Linux makers, which it hopes will bring the desktop software suite to Linux versions such as Gentoo, Yellow Dog, Red Hat and SuSE.
Previously the company had moved away from efforts to sell JDS on Linux and focused on Solaris.
Beta testing is a tough and unappealing task, but 1 000 beers would certainly make the time worthwhile. One thousand German beers awaits the Linux enthusiast who crash tests BitDefender Mail Protection for Enterprises Beta most thoroughly.
What is the LOOP list?
This is a list of high-quality, open-source applications that run on Windows.
To demonstrate the quality of open-source applications and thereby advocate the open source software development model.
Tell all your non-Linux friends and family about the LOOP list. On this list they will find high-quality replacements for the software that they have purchased/pirated.
It's well known that the open Business Readiness Rating standard is still very early along in the steering process, but what would you say is the largest challenge BRR faces in going mainstream?
Joaquín Ruiz: Yes, we are still in the early going, but I would say it still is getting critical mass. However, we have been somewhat surprised in the early going in regards to BRR and in regards to the number of people downloading the proposal and asking to become part of board and steering committee..."
Mozilla Corp. has had to delay the first release candidate of Firefox 1.5 by a few days to smash some late-appearing bugs, a company employee announced late Monday.
Firefox 1.5, which is currently in its second beta version, was going to move on to the next step, Release Candidate 1, on Friday, Oct. 28. A code lockdown -- which meant that no new changes for RC1 would be accepted -- was scheduled for midnight Sunday, Oct. 23.
One of the largest Free Software event in the world, the 7th edition of the International Free Software Forum called for papers on October 18th. Proposals due on December 4th 2005.
The migration of about 300 business applications from Windows to Linux is one of the biggest challenges facing the city of Munich, which has embarked on one of Europe's largest public-sector open-source projects.
When I first heard that the Google Base url was running I immediately thought that Google was offering a Googlefied version of the Basecamp calendar project management platform. Instead, it seems that Google is offering some sort of personal database where users can upload and store all kinds of content.
An independent software house in China has updated its dual-licensed, lightweight graphics framework and window manager. Beijing Feynman Software's 2.01 release of MiniGUI-VAR adds support for multiple processes, and targets high-end embedded systems running embedded Linux. Older releases support uClinux, eCos, and various commercial OSes.
Not only is the Pacific Northwest home to Microsoft, it is also an active hotbed of open source development.
Google is banking on further developing open source in the region to a tune of $350,000, which is being donated to Oregon State University (OSU) and Portland State University to fund a new open source technology initiative.
Though not a prescription to destroy Microsoft, we could certainly level the field and return innovation and competition to Information Technology once again.
Skype Technologies updated its popular Skype Internet telephony software on Tuesday to fix a pair of security bugs. The most serious flaw could allow an attacker to commandeer a user's PC.
DR-DOS Inc. (formerly DeviceLogics) released DR-DOS 8.1 in the beginning of this month. But instead of an upgrade of the previous DR-DOS 8.0 released last year based on the old Caldera DR-DOS 7.03 code, as one would expect, it's something completely different.
This is not good. Of course, the copyright holders need to respond to these - while I am the coordinator for the FreeDOS Project (and I certainly shall contact DRDOS about it) only the copyright holder can respond to a copyright / GPL violation. The copyright holder is the one who is legally authorized to take action to enforce the license. We support the FreeDOS developers!
Studio To Go is a Knoppix-based Linux musical software environment that allows Windows users access to linux-based open-source software tools, without having to install Linux onto the Windows PC.
Knoppix is a Linux that runs completely from a CD-ROM, although it probably takes some RAM and turns it into a ram disk for housekeeping duties and temporary files. Knoppix supports a number of external devices, such as USB thumbdrives, network interface cards, and modems.
As you know, Friday is an interim deadline for the parties in SCO v. IBM to lay their cards on the table in discovery regarding allegedly infringed code. Or more specifically, as you can see on the IBM Timeline page, it's listed as the 'Interim Deadline for Parties to Disclose with Specificity All Allegedly Misused Material Identified to Date and to Update Interrogatory Responses Accordingly.' The very thought of SCO having to disclose anything with specificity at last has us all drooling, I know, and I've seen some high hopes that finally SCO will have to present its evidence and reveal to the world what code is allegedly infringed by IBM.
Wait a second, guys. This is The SCO Group we are talking about here. SCO's middle name is delay.
Welcome to this year's 43rd issue of DWN, the weekly newsletter for the Debian community.
Louis Lesko came up with the idea for Blinkbid invoicing software for photographers after scribbling notes on a napkin at a cocktail party. Though Blinkbid itself is closed source, it was built using open source tools, so it's no wonder that, after its success, Lesko chose an open source customer relationship management package (CRM) to keep track of contacts and payments.
