Review: Core Web Application Development with PHP and MySQL

If you are not familiar with the Core series of books from Prentice Hall PTR, I recommend that you quickly remedy the situation. My personal favorites are, "Core Java 2, Volumes I and II " by Horstmann and Cornell. Special mention goes to Wesley Chun for his great introductory Python book, "Core Python Programming", the 2nd edition of which is said to be coming out Summer 2006.

Computerworld reports that Sun Microsystems is planning to release more of the company’s core code--including the Java Enterprise System, the N1 Grid computing system, and more--as open source over the course of the coming year.

The goal, according to Sun, is to put its products in the hands of developers who might not otherwise have the budget to purchase the software. By making the products open source, developers will be able to download and use the products for free--and hopefully drive service and support contracts back to Sun in the future.

Autopackage: Toward a universal package manager for the desktop

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Dec 1, 2005 12:30 AM EDT)
  • Groups: GNU; Story Type: News Story
If Mike Hearn, Hongli Lai, and the rest of the Autopackage team realize their goals, the future of package management in GNU/Linux will be greatly different from the present. Existing package management systems will remain for libraries and system utilities, but a separate tool will manage desktop applications. Packages will be installable for either the entire system or just the current account. Installation will be more convenient, too, with graphical tools designed for usability and tools for both end users and developers documented to professional standards.

Can Microsoft kill Python?

  • Groups: Microsoft; Story Type: News Story
First of all, let me say that I am not a Microsoft hater. I will say that I am not fond of the majority of products I have used which bear the Microsoft label. They tend to leave me feeling as though my hands are tied and my options are limited and that I'm being "guided" by a paternalistic entity who feels that he knows what is best for me...but rarely ever really knows what is best for me. Whatever my experience, Microsoft creates products which are great for the majority of people out there. That is why Microsoft is such a successful company. Further, I believe that Microsoft has done more to push the computing world forward more than any other single company. So, I am by no means anti-Microsoft.

Creating Live CD Linux with PCLinuxOS

  •; By Dmitri Popov (Posted by tadelste on Nov 30, 2005 6:40 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial
For the sake of simplicity let’s assume that you will use the computer’s entire hard disk for PCLinuxOS. Before you can boot your computer using the created PCLinuxOS disk, you have to make sure that your PC’s CD-ROM drive is set as the first boot device. Usually this can be done by changing settings in BIOS, and the exact steps depend on your computer model and BIOS version. Once this is done, you are ready to boot PCLinuxOS. Start your computer and insert the PCLinuxOS in the CD drive. During the boot, you will be asked to log in either as guest or root. Log in as root using root as both user name and password. When the system is finished booting, double-click on the Livecd-Installer shortcut on the Desktop to launch the Livecd-Installer tool.

This article goes over one person's experience when moving computer beginners from Windows to Linux. This is not always a smooth transition, but in this case a computer which was barely working was salvaged and there was an easy switch from one operating system to the next. Casual computer users almost always use Windows but the article observes that they could just as easily be using a Linux distribution, which would save money and extend the life of their computer, while avoiding many of the security hazards to which new users are most vulnerable.
