In this episode: a discussion of the IceWM window manager; a Listener Tip; listener feedback.
BusyBox is a set of command-line utilities developed with the goal of keeping its size as small as possible. To that end, all unnecessary options and code are ruthlessly cut out, and the entire command set is implemented by a single, multipurpose executable. BusyBox is found in a number of embedded environments; chances are it is running on your wireless router, for example.

A few weeks ago, Gael Duval lifted the veil of secrecy surrounding his new project a little bit by 'leaking' some screenshots and information. Obviously, a lot of questions remained, and hence we contacted Gael Duval in order to ask him some basic questions about Ulteo.

UK-based Pinnacle Audio used embedded Linux to build an ultra-high-fidelity, hard-drive-based music server capable of storing roughly 9,000 CDs, with lossless compression. The Athenaeum comes with a Linux-powered Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, which serves as its remote control, and it features a 24-bit, 96kHz digital-to-analog converter.
IBM is in full swing promoting its highly integrated and extensive It management tools and technologies which it's ready to roll-out into an enthusiastic, waiting business community. Or so it thinks. Why does this seem like another chapter in Kafka's The Trial to me?
Let's face it, these days it takes a special breed of individuals to be able to successfully create and maintain websites for a living. Those who choose this career path likely have their own special brand of tools that they use on a daily basis to get their workload under control. As for the rest of us, however, we need a HTML editor that is usable, yet remains robust enough to get the job done right with no excuses.
Naming distribution versions after a calendar year sounds familiar to me. I'm thinking of Windows 95, of course. And my experience with French distribution Mandriva 2007 brought me back to those frustrating times I used to have with Microsoft's decade-old offering.

One of the nice things about Apache is it's amazing ability to be configured. The logging sub-system is a lot more configurable than most people realise or make use of. This article will give a brief overview of extending the log format to include logging of the time taken to serve a request, and then extracting some insights into the overall speed of the website for most users. The key difference is this is not using external measuring tools and utilities, this is measuring what real users really get!

Linus Torvalds has picked up one of Apple's new Intel-based Mac minis to play with, but the Linux creator still prefers Apple's old PowerPC architecture for his primary desktop machine.
Desktop applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird, and the GIMP are not the only ones that can use extensions and plugins for added functionality -- some Web-based programs can too.
