The Mozilla Foundation late on Thursday reversed course by announcing that it is no longer planning to develop major updates to its original application suite. Instead, the open-source project will focus its efforts on its stand-alone Firefox Web browser and Thunderbird email client, the foundation said in a "transition plan" posted to its Web site.
In an age of ever-growing applications and exploding Linux distributions, it's not uncommon to see a single release span anywhere from three to five or more CDs. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as most Linux distributions try to include everything you could ever want or need, but is it really necessary? To some, maybe, but others enjoy the ability to install everything from a single source. VectorLinux SOHO 5 is based on the recently released Slackware 10.1 distribution, and includes an entire desktop environment, supporting libraries, and a wealth of useful applications all on a single disc.

With the release of amaroK 1.2 last month, I finally found the Linux music player I've been wanting. When I moved to Linux full-time about two years ago, the only software that I missed from Windows was a quality audio player. Linux audio players lacked features like cover downloads, smart playlists, or easy burning to CD. Even worse, with a large collection of more than 10,000 tracks, the Linux players generally locked up when I tried to load them all, or at least slowed to an unbearable crawl. AmaroK has all of the basic features of modern Windows audio players, and some features that I haven't seen in any other player.
The Mozilla Foundation is expected to make a formal announcement on the future of the Mozilla Application Suite soon.

The next version of Novell's SuSE Linux product, shipping in mid-April, will let users run multiple versions of the operating system simultaneously, the company said on Thursday.
SCO's litigation over Linux was hugely unpopular, but there was a big upside, according to the chief executive of Open Source Development Labs.
A new version, due to ship in April, bundles revamped applications and tools with the latest version of the operating system.
Commentary: Novell made two major Linux-related announcements at CEBIT this week. They announced SUSE Professional 9.3, due to be released in April, and ZENworks 7 for Linux. Unlike many press releases in this industry, announcing a new customer contract or otherwise allowing marketing folk to message the masses (forgive me, Baud, for the babble-speak), these two actually have some weight to them. Novell's director of marketing for SUSE LINUX, Greg Mancusi-Ungaro, and ZENworks product management and marketing vice president Alan Murray combined to brief NewsForge on the news yesterday afternoon, following the SUSE Professional 9.3 announcement at CEBIT, but ahead of today's unveiling at CEBIT of the latest version of ZENworks.
Built on a Debian Linux core, Linspire is designed for simplicity of use, and it delivers this in spades. Linspire eliminates the need for me to be technically proficient in the nuances of Linux to successfully operate and enjoy the OS. This includes loading software, staying updated, and never seeing a command-line interface. It makes it very easy to just get on with what I have to do and not worry about the technicalities of using a Linux-based system.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Far away from the usual open source software industry focus on code, freedom, and evangelism, the InnoTech conference and expo held here this week centered on the business of open source for business' sake. Sure there was talk about the advantages of Linux and open source technology, the ability to impact operating system-level functionality, and fighting unwarranted fears of a different model, but the heart of the conference was the beat of business -- cutting costs, driving value, and saving time and grief.
