This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a Mandriva Free 2007 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).

With Novell, SuSE and Ubuntu rocking the headlines lately, for sometime, locating news about Red Hat meant that you had to really dig for it. I don't believe it was because they stopped trying or even ignored making new developments available to the press as a whole.

This week at LWN: The third GPLv3 draft

The original plans had called for the third draft of the GNU General Public License update to come out late last year. Needless to say, things didn't happen that way. Between trying to address concerns raised from various directions and responding to the Microsoft/Novell deal, the Free Software Foundation ended up having to slip its schedule; as a result, eight months have passed since the second draft was released. One could well argue that a major license update should not be made in a hurry, and thus the delays are not problematic. In any case, the wait is over: the new GPLv3 draft is available. In many ways, the draft resembles its predecessors; in others, it has changed significantly. This article will focus on the differences.

Here come the Dell Linux desktops, laptops

Dell contacted on March 28 to let us know that the company will be releasing select desktop and notebook systems with pre-installed Linux as an option in the coming weeks. Dell, however, is still playing its Linux cards close to its vest. For example, we do not know at this time which Linux distribution -- or distributions -- it will be supporting, or what Dell desktop and laptop machines will have pre-installed Linux as an option.

Microsoft’s Linux Woes

Software behemoth Microsoft could be one of the biggest losers from proposed license changes to the Linux operating system unveiled Wednesday. That’s a possible outcome of updates to the license pushed by the Free Software Foundation. The FSF wants to make mutually exclusive pacts such as the Novell-Microsoft open-source agreement (see Exit Interview: Jeremy Allison, Strange Bedfellows) a violation of the next iteration of the GNU GPL (General Public License), the license that governs Linux use.
