Ibm's System i Priorities for 2007

As the holiday season approached last December, two key people at IBM's System i division took some time out of their schedules to talk about the technology and marketing areas that they would focus on in 2007 with the i5/OS platform. Many of the priorities that Big Blue has for the platform have been talked about in 2006, such as Voice Over IP telephony and the PHP language running on the platform. But these key IBMers did offer some more insight as well as an initial reaction to my own suggestion that IBM fully embrace user-based capacity pricing for the System i5 line.

Linux on the PlayStation 3

It is unusual for gaming consoles to allow foreign operating systems to be installed on them. Sony decided to open up the PS3 console and allow third-party operating systems to be installed. Learn how to get started developing for the Cell BE processor on the PS3. This article provides an overview, installation, and first programming steps. Its the easiest way for programmers to get their hands on the new Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE) processor and take it for a drive.

Embedded in CES

More and more hot new hardware runs on cool and stable Linux, plus a growing abundance of open source building materials. Since relatively few open source components are graced with publicity ambitions (much less departments), they tend not to make themselves obvious. Meaning that reporters like yours truly need to go hunting for them.So I'd like your help. I'm here at the Consumer Electronics Show—CES— in Las Vegas, getting ready to launch out onto the trade show floors to see What's Up with Linux amongst the 2,700 exhibitors spread across 1.7 million square feet of exhibit space.

OpenMFG sidles up to the GPL with OpenRPT

OpenMFG, founded in 2001, provides enterprise resource planning software to small and mid-sized manufacturing companies. It's one of those businesses whose proprietary product is "built on" open source. But OpenMFG is beginning to put its money where its mouth is: recently the company released one of its modules, OpenRPT, under the GPL.

Review: Exaile Media Player

One of my favorite open source applications is Amarok, a music player with an intuitive interface that makes boring tasks such as organizing large music collections less troublesome. The only problem with Amarok is that it's a KDE application and I'm a GNOME user. Although there's nothing wrong with running KDE programs on GNOME, they take a long time to start, since they need to load the KDE libraries and components they depend on first. I've found a good alternative in Exaile, my new favorite media player for Linux.

Book Review: Moving to Free Software

Marcel Gagne's book for Windows users entitled: Moving to Free Software is an introduction to useful Free and Open Source (FOSS) licensed software that runs on the proprietary Windows operating system.

While a good introduction containing much useful information, the book has some misnomers and missing parts.

Linux KVM Virtualization Performance
