The Boo language proves open source can make nice with Microsoft. Python-based language targets Microsoft's CLI and supports Mono.
Many people want to write but have a fear of rejection. When one understands the correct format to use, it makes it easier to articulate your ideas.
The founder of the Debian Linux project and of a company called Progeny to commercialize it has taken a new job trying to standardize elements of the open-source operating system.
After announcing military/aerospace technology six months ago, Sysgo is growing. The Germany-based provider of embedded Linux distributions, tools, and services expects 50 percent revenue growth in 2006, and a 50 percent staffing increase. Sysgo is headquartered in Mainz, Germany, with subsidiaries in Ulm, Germany; Prague, Czechoslovakia; and Paris.
A quiet revolution is taking place on a young mailing list, one that overturns years of false enmity and makes perfect sense to most free software users. Having competed for the free desktop crown since 1997, collaborating on code but never on promotion, KDE and GNOME have launched an initiative to market and promote the free desktop together.
My first encounter with Howtoforge
began with "The Perfect Setup"
for Debian Sarge by Falko Timme
. I found a site loaded with fundamentally sound and easy to follow setups for Linux administration. This is a location on the WEB that people needing to administer Linux should bookmark. But then there's more.On Digg.com
As HP claims market leadership over IBM, will the the real leader in Linux servers step forward?
HP is stepping up its interest in Linux and has set up a UK centre of excellence for Linux in Reading.
The company is also planning to set up similar centres in mainland Europe and in the US. Further details weren't available on Thursday, but it's understood that Germany and Atlanta are under consideration.
I administer servers and networking equipment in a small to mid-size heterogeneous (but 99.44% *nix) environment. I've worked on projects ranging from NIS-to-LDAP migration for authentication, to the deployment of a 164-CPU Beowulf cluster, to writing an extension to a large OO-PHP application. I'm a generalist, but my favorite areas are LDAP (and authentication in general), database design and administration, and automation (a broad category that includes writing tools and code to glue services together). Here are my favorite tools.
Oracle has been on a buying spree recently, and if the rumors are true it's not quite finished yet. This isn't unusual for companies of Oracle's size, but Oracle's appetite for open source companies may have repercussions for MySQL and the rest of the open source community.
Advisories were released this week for Libtasn1, kdegraphics, OpenSSH, PostgreSQL, ImageMagick, Xpdf, and several other packages. Distributors releasing advisories include Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, Mandriva, Red Hat, SUSE, and Ubuntu. FreeBSD did not issue advisories this week.
"Microsoft recently made a change to the licence agreement saying that a new motherboard is equal to a new computer, hence you need to purchase a new Windows licence. Here is what Microsoft has to say: "An upgrade of the motherboard is considered to result in a 'new personal computer' to which Microsoft OEM operating system software cannot be transferred from another computer. If the motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new computer has been created and the license of new operating system software is required." Please note that this does not go for retail copies of Windows, but only for OEM versions.
A new search engine for programmers promises to make it easier to find and share code. That in turn could increase programmers' productivity and give a fresh boost to the open-source movement.
It's not often that the top standards folks at IBM, Sun and Microsoft sit together to debate open standards and open source (but it's always interesting when they do).
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in looking for ways to improve the quality of the patents it issues, has turned to the biggest patent holder in the country, which also happens to be one of the biggest supporters of open source software (OSS). IBM's 2,941 patents from 2005 make it far and away the top patentee for the thirteenth consecutive year, but Big Blue -- with the help of the USPTO, Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), Novell, Red Hat, and SourceForge -- is now aiming for quality over quantity, and is enlisting the OSS community to do it.
Will independent movie production grow in the garden fertilized by lousy broadband service? That's the question on the floor.
Founder of Debian Linux project and of company called Progeny to commercialize it takes job trying to standardize elements of OS.
NEW DELHI: Red Hat today announced its intent to certify Red Hat Enterprise Linux on HP's new Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) bh5700 Blade Server. The new server will feature Red Hat Enterprise Linux as its preferred operating system.
