Sabayon Linux miniEdition looks sharp on the bleeding edge

  •; By Nathan Willis (Posted by dcparris on Oct 16, 2006 5:33 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews; Groups: GNU, Linux
Last week the Sabayon Linux project released ISO images of its miniEdition 3.1 live CD Linux distro. Sabayon has earned a reputation for running right on the cutting edge; it is the first distro to deploy a live CD using the Beryl compositing engine and Nvidia's newest beta video drivers. The only reason I tested the miniEdition instead of the full DVD ISO is that the DVD torrent estimated three days to complete the download. Seeing how much there is the miniEdition, perhaps I should be glad.

Open Source Pioneer, Eric S. Raymond, Joins Freespire Leadership Board

Eric S. Raymond, one of the co-founders of the open source movement, has joined the Freespire Leadership Board. A community-driven, Linux-based operating system, Freespire was developed to give users the option of combining free open source software with certain proprietary codecs, drivers and applications.

Mr. Raymond, well-known as both a theorist and an advocate for the open source movement, joins twelve other Freespire Leadership Board members, composed of thinkers, business people, evangelists, and key members of the Linux community. In recent weeks, Mr. Raymond has spoken publicly about the ''necessary compromise'' that open source advocates must be willing to make, by providing for an easy way for open source software to work with key proprietary technologies for which there are not yet adequate open source alternatives.

From the From One of the Horse's Mouths dept.: There have been quite some comments on the Iceweasel case all over the planets, and I saw several assertions, especially from the Mozilla camp, that I, as the Firefox® co-maintainer, the xulrunner maintainer, and (soon) seamonkey iceape co-maintainer, have to rectify.

Seven steps to increase Linux security

Ask a network administrator in any large organisation to compare Linux with network operating systems like Windows NT or Novell, and chances are he'll admit that Linux is an inherently more stable and scalable solution. Chances are he'll also admit that when it comes to securing the system from outside attack, Linux is possibly the most difficult of the three to work with.

Where’s the Progress?

  • Open for Business; By Timothy R. Butler (Posted by dcparris on Oct 16, 2006 11:08 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: GNU, Linux
Those of us observing GNU/Linux over the past decade have spent so much time talking about how “next year is Linux’s year on the desktop” that it has become more of a humorous cliché than a useful statement. Nevertheless, while every year the Penguin has disappointed us in not quite readying itself to compete against Apple and Microsoft’s systems, at least in the small office and home office market, we can always cling to the eternal hope: next year. Or can we?

  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Community
There are a variety of Intrusion Detection Systems in the market ranging from the enterprise-level managed-network monitoring solution to a simple on-the-host logging system.
