Kicking Linux's Tires

  • PC World; By Matthew Newton (Posted by dave on Jun 21, 2005 10:06 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
I've been working on a Linux Tips column for an upcoming issue of PC World--a much tougher assignment than my monthly Free Agent ramble, for two reasons: First, I've got only one magazine page to work with, so I'm a bit restricted in what I can tackle. Second, the reality is that the overwhelming majority of our magazine's readers run Windows, not Linux. Since we do our darnedest to make every page of PC World engaging to our readers, I'm out to craft a Linux column that might prove relevant to those who are still computing Bill Gates-style.

WebGUI works wonders for church Web site

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Jun 21, 2005 7:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
In 2002, Portland, Ore.'s Sunset Presbyterian Church had a 200+-page Web site that contained mainly static content about the church, its ministries, and events. While many people were using the Web site and submitting content for it, the all-volunteer team maintaining it, of which I was a member, was overworked. Half of our time was spent editing existing pages and removing old content. Everything was done by hand: creating pages, uploading them to the site via FTP, and checking them against the site's style guidelines. All new volunteers required lots of training to become fully contributing members. Our team needed to find a way to become more efficient.

Computing without Windows

You don't have to run Microsoft's omnipresent OS, but why should you try an alternative? For many years there have been several operating systems to choose from, but the newest ones – those based on a Linux kernel – have usually been hard to use, at least for the average user. Times have definitely changed. Get your hands on a recent version of, say, Xandros Desktop and you’d almost swear you'd been working with it forever.

Patent absurdity

As information technology becomes more pervasive, the issues of communication between information-processing machines and people becomes increasingly important. Up to now such communication has been almost entirely by means of video screens. Speech, which is by far the most widely used and natural means of communication between people, is an obvious possible substitute. However, this deceptively simple means of exchanging information is, in fact, extremely complicated. Festival Speech Synthesis System aims to make things a little easier on interface developers.
