Rev up your presentations with masks and movement

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Mar 9, 2005 3:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
We all appreciate well-thought-out slide shows that logically step through a topic, especially when they're not dull and boring. When creating presentations, many of us are tempted to toss in every little feature the software supports. Unfortunately, cluttered slides can be hard to follow, and obnoxious design elements look cheap. One good technique to enhance your presentations is to use the GIMP's mask feature to make interesting text and cut-out objects, and make those objects move on an Impress slide.

Review: Astaro Security Linux 5.1

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Mar 9, 2005 12:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
One of the more popular uses for Linux is as a router/firewall to secure a local area network (LAN) against intruders and share an Internet connection. Several specialized distributions have sprung up to simplify this task. These range from small, diskette-based distros like the Linux Router Project and FREESCO to larger systems requiring a hard disk installation. Among the latter is Astaro Corp.'s Astaro Security Linux (ASL) 5.1, which I recently reviewed as part of ongoing research into content filtering products. ASL is an RPM-based distribution that allows an administrator to easily turn an x86 PC or server into a router/firewall appliance.

  • Story Type: News Story
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) took down the Loki Torrent Web site last month, but the open source technology known as BitTorrent -- used by Loki Torrent for free, unlicensed file sharing -- is not a target of the movie industry or other content owners, largely because of its legitimate uses, but also, according to legal experts, because it is open source software.

Over the last couple of years the South African government has become something of a global leader among governments making the move towards open source software. Its much publicised open source strategy and the very public face of the various open source working groups, together with the many open source-based pilot projects being run by the State Information Technology Agency, have done wonders for the profile of open source software in the country and even in the broader African region.

Review: Mandrake Corporate Desktop

The corporate desktop GNU/Linux distribution is a relatively new invention, having begun with SUSE Desktop, then followed by Sun's Java Desktop System and Red Hat Desktop. But with much less fanfare, Mandrakesoft released a Corporate Desktop product last January. It's cheaper, has no minimum purchase requirement, and has support options of from one to five years. Compared to the alternatives, Mandrake Corporate Desktop is suited more for smaller shops that need a cost-effective and reliable desktop platform with corporate support.
