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.
In the last instalment of his FAQ, Mark Shuttleworth discusses what Ubuntu means for its precursor, Debian. He also gives his opinions on the controversial DCC Alliance.
Here's a look at some of the Linux desktop news from the past week:
Linux has made great strides in taking over servers in the data center. Now the mighty penguin is fishing for another market--advanced cell phones and other mobile devices.
Open Source Development Labs, which employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds, last week said it has brought together Motorola Inc. and several other high-tech vendors to develop a Linux platform for sophisticated cellular phones and other mobile devices.
With Quake 4 being available for retail sales here in the United States for a couple of days now, and even the Linux binaries, we've already posted over 120 in-game single player screenshots here and on release date posted a slight preview into the world of Quake 4, but now is our first time delivering frame-rate performance results from inside Quake 4. Making this more than the usual performance testing, we've compared our Quake 4 results against that of Doom 3. As Quake 4 is powered by a tweaked version of id's Doom 3 engine, it will be interesting to see the difference in frame-rate, if any, between these two popular games.
With news settling in that the makers of the network vulnerability scanner Nessus will not open source the next version of the software, the team behind the soon-to-be-renamed GNessUs project is growing fast and attracting attention.
I'm a fan of GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software (FOSS). Most readers that write me, even ones that disagree with my perspective, count it toward the plus side. They understand my bias -- there's never been any question of it...
We, at LXer.com, don't have all of the answers. I'm not paid to give them to you and I certainly don't even begin to think that if I were, I would have them all. But I can speak about what I do know. I have some friends here that share the same opinions. They know that to speak the truth, to be true to your own beliefs -- to call them like they see them -- that is where the true power is.
Protegrity Now Offers Market's Only End-To-End Security Solution for Linux Open Systems Platform
RFID Device Development kit is a set of Linux based Java tools and techniques for interfacing RFID (radio frequency identification) readers and other related hardware into an RFID middleware solution.
The dramatic growth of its databases has forced ABCC to address increasingly complex user queries, which have required additional processor power, memory, and data storage capacity. In order to address these growing demands, ABCC has purchased an SGI(R) Altix(R) 3700 supercomputer, powered by 256 Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors and running the open-source Linux(R) operating system, which will serve as an important scientific computational resource that is part of a growing list of SGI servers at the center. ABCC researchers depend on the Altix systems' scalability and their ability to handle large memory problems, such as modeling anti-cancer drug interactions with known tumor targets or analyzing genomic/proteomic data.
