Jacqueline Emigh reports.

Microsoft adopts open-source security feature

Microsoft is taking a page out of the open-source community's book where it comes to security. In Windows Vista Beta 2, released last week, the company included a feature called address space layout randomisation (ASLR), a method of foiling some classes of attack that has usually been associated with open-source projects.

Streamline software inventory management with OCSNG

I manage about 200 computers running various flavors of Linux and Microsoft Windows in my company. We built a home-grown PHP-based inventory application to store our hardware and software inventory information. The software relied on our updating information manually, whenever there was any change, so as you might expect, the data was always outdated. We replaced our old system with Open Computer and Software Inventory Next Generation, released under the GNU GPL. OCSNG suited our needs immensely. We could see the benefits almost immediately, as it automated the collection and updating of the data, which is the most crucial part of inventory management.

Boss of Slippery-Fingered VA Analyst Gets The Boot While Keystone Kops Give Chase

  • Email Battles; By BJ Gillette (Posted by zanek on May 31, 2006 8:30 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
The boss of the VA analyst who was allowed, though not authorized, to take home critical personal information belonging to over 26 million veterans, has finally fallen (or been pushed) onto his sword. No word on the fate of other personnel who covered up the theft. To hammer home official incompetence, the VA is offering a reward for the return of the equipment that held the data, apparently employing a theory that burglars don't know how to copy data.

Report from FreedomHEC

SEATTLE -- Every year, Microsoft holds a Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC). This year, WinHEC was immediately followed by a small, informal two-day "unconference" dubbed FreedomHEC. Though not as large as WinHEC, FreedomHEC was a great chance for developers to get up close and personal with Linux kernel developers.

The GP2x PDA: A PDA focused on games and GNU/Linux

  • Free Software Magazine; By Steven Goodwin (Posted by fsmdave on May 31, 2006 2:02 PM EDT)
Games under GNU/Linux have usually been a lacklustre affair. For every Tux Racer, there are a hundred sub-standard Pac-man clones you’d be embarrassed to advocate. For every commercial version of Quake, there’s a hundred other worthy games the publisher elected not to port to GNU/Linux. Without good games, there’s no market, and without the market, no effort is spared. And so the cycle continues. This article looks at two of the areas in which GNU/Linux games have succeeded, and a new device that combines them both, which could help expose GNU/Linux to the populous.

A number of news sites have reported that Novell will soon be announcing its latest foray into open source identity management: the Bandit project (a somewhat surprising choice of name given the focus on security, privacy and so forth).

OpenSUSE 10.1 Is Versatile, but Uneven

Review: Novell's OpenSUSE 10.1 operating system wears many hats well, but management tools can use some smoothing.

Overall, eWEEK Labs appreciated the ambitious scope of OpenSUSE 10.1's configuration tools, but we also ran into some areas in which Yast's reach frustratingly exceeded its grasp.

Think tanks like Heartland and their ties with Microsoft: What everybody should know

LXer Feature: 27-May-06

Recently, Mr. Steven Titch wrote an article about Open Document which contained Microsoft-style disinformation. At that moment, some of our readers suggested Heartland or Mr. Titch might have been funded by Microsoft. While I couldn't find any direct ties, there are lot of indirect ties between the Heartland Institute and Microsoft, and at a certain point in my research, even the name of Mr. Abramoff showed up. A summary of the things I found.
