Desperate Need for New OS Alternatives

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
With software, there’s room for competition, and the barriers to entry are rather small in a lot of cases. If a developer has a radical idea on how to improve a certain process and solve a problem that’s not met by other software titles, he can spend some time developing a solution, release it to the public, and if it’s good, acceptance will soon follow.

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Linux
Nearly everyday, I have people e-mailing me with questions regarding my choice of the distributions that I highlight. Many of them feel that Ubuntu is too simplistic and that I should consider something like Gentoo. Others, however, ask me why I’m not more supportive of more entry level distributions like PCLinuxOS and Freespire.

How To Install VMware Server On Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)

  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Ubuntu
This tutorial shows how to install the free VMware Server on an Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) 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).

iKog: The tiny to-do manager that could

iKog is a text-based to-do manager that can help you to keep tabs on your tasks from the command line. Although it lacks all the bells and whistles of a full-blown GUI task manager, it's one of those tools that make a virtue of doing a limited range of tasks well. iKog is written in Python, and since most Linux distributions come with Python installed by default, iKog will run on them right out of the box.

Release It! Design and Deploy Production-Ready Software

Once upon a time (or should that be "Long, long ago in a..." but I digress), I worked for a software startup company where time and man-(people)-power were limited. At one point or another, we all wore a variety of hats including tech support and (gasp) software testers. It's an incredibly daunting and involved task and the company was always struggling to define just when they could/should release the next version of their product. They eventually went under (not because the product was bad but because of more "administrative issues"...but that's another story) and I was released from the responsibility of wearing many hats. Still, the fascination of designing, testing, and deploying software has never really left me.
