I'd love to be a BSD fan

BSD is so mature, so orderly, so ... run by adults. Or so says the PR (what little there is). But whenever I try to actually run BSD, I run into trouble. I haven't tried any BSDs since my review of FreeSBIE back in April, so recently I figured I'd give some BSD distros a spin.

Flash CS3: The Missing Manual

  •; By James Pyles (Posted by tripwire45 on Jun 22, 2007 6:22 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews

This isn't the first Flash CS3 book review I've written so I have an idea of what to look for in a text on this topic. The other book, published by Adobe Press, received some less than complementary reviews on Amazon based on the report that steps were missing, keeping the reader from being able to adequately learn the technology. This point has been contested since I've heard from the author and his review of the book found no such flaws. While I thought the Adobe Press book was pretty good all and all, it's time to find out if this "Missing Manual" can rival or better...stand above the competition.

Welcome to Open Source 2.0

There is no doubt that 3 February 1998 was a historic day. For it was then, at a meeting in Mountain View, that a small group led by Eric Raymond came up with the term “open source” as an alternative to the description “free software”. The question is, will history count 21 June 2007 as another such pivotal moment – the day that Open Source 2.0 was born?

This week at LWN: Long-term support and backport risk

One of the main selling points touted by many Linux-oriented vendors is stability. Once a customer buys a subscription for an "enterprise" Linux or embedded systems product, the vendor will fix bugs in the software but otherwise keep it stable. The value for customers is that they can put these supported distributions into important parts of their operations (or products) secure in the knowledge that their supplier will provide updates which keep the system bug-free and secure without breaking things. This business model predates Linux by many years, but, as the success of certain companies shows, there is still demand for this sort of service.

Throwing in the Towel - Linux on the server = yes. Linux on the desktop = not if I don't have to

Linux Linux Everywhere. Except where you can see it. There is a lot of discussion in the media about Linux and Microsoft. The recent agreements between Microsoft and various Linux distros came as quite a surprise for some people, as there is a significant difference in the business model and philosophy of open source software versus commercial software. "Microsoft has announced a partnership with Novell and will help promote Linux. This is stunning. This is like Red Sox fans announcing they're going to root for the Yankees."

Laura and Me - Updated

I wrote once that I wanted to be a tech analyst when I grew up, because no one seems to expect them to get their facts right. That, I reasoned, would make it an easy gig. I could lean back in my chair, put my feet up on the desk, and just make things up. Why research? And people would actually print it as if it were true. And next time they wanted to know something, they would call me up again, even though I called it completely wrong the last time, had huge gaps in my knowledge, got random but truly vital facts utterly wrong, and said the opposite of what is observably true.
