  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Linux
I just don't get it. Offering XGL and Beryl to the Linux masses is fantastic, don't get me wrong. However, I simply feel like too much emphasis is being placed on a “pretty desktop” versus functionality.

Open-source intelligence moving to the fore

The development and sharing of open-source information may be the first arena where true collaboration among all the agencies in the intelligence community — a requirement in the post-9/11 world — takes hold. At least, Douglas Naquin, director of the Open Source Center in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is working hard to make it come true.

There you are, happily playing around with an audio file you've spent all afternoon tweaking, and you're thinking, "Wow, doesn't it sound great? Lemme just move it over here." At that point your subconscious chimes in, "Um, you meant mv, not rm, right?" Oops. I feel your pain -- this happens to everyone. But there's a straightforward method to recover your lost file, and since it works on every standard Linux system, everyone ought to know how to do it.

Python Phrasebook (Developer's Library)

Having recently reviewed JavaScript Phrasebook by Christian Wenz for the Linux Tutorial site and Wesley Chun's Core Python Programming for Linux Magazine (due out in next month's issue), I was excited to get the opportunity to review the brand-new Python Phrasebook. Apparently Brad Dayley was also excited about writing this book as he states in the Introduction: 'I was excited when my editor asked me to write a phrasebook on the Python language. The phrasebook is one of the smallest books I have ever written; however, it was one of the hardest.'
