It may not be just be all hype. As Novell throws the weight of its rich software stack, its channel partners and consulting services behind the SuSE Linux distribution, it could nudge Red Hat from the security of its frontrunner perch, says a new wide ranging report on Linux from Gartner.
I'd like to announce the availability of new Aurox Live version (1.4.2). It is based on Aurox 9.3. This Live supports Polish, German, French and Spanish. You can use KDE or fluxbox as graphical environments.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC), the leading international IT vendor along with its solutions partner, Fujitsu Services, recently implemented a comprehensive Linux based Cluster storage solution project for Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO), a pioneering oil and gas producer in the Middle East.
Leading Telecommunications and Networking Companies Use MySQL for High Performance, Reliable Data Management and Low Total Cost...Alcatel, Cox Communications and Siemens Among Growing Number of MySQL Telecom and Networking Customers.
While long considered a geeky endeavor of "purplemohawked hackers who write substandard code," open source operating systems are being adopted by more and more corporations since it saves them money. They don't have to create or buy a proprietary operating system.
Gluecode has released the 3.5 version of its open source business automation server aimed squarely at the enterprise portal market with tools for personalization, business process management and security, and new JCA adaptors for enterprise products like SAP, Siebel and PeopleSoft.
A second generation of open-source tools such as databases and app servers is winning business converts. But do they have the innovation and influence to prosper?
The GPL is, as far as I can see, the most innovative adjustment to copyright and IP contracts that has occurred for decades - maybe even centuries. The idea is, in essence, a simple one. Previously creators and collaborators in the creation of IP (or works covered by copyright - software happens to fall into both categories at times) chose either to defend their legal ownership via copyright and/or the lodging of patents or they chose to make it freely available. The GPL plows a middle course, allowing free usage of software source code on condition that whatever is added (source code and IP) is also provided to others on the same basis. It thus encourages collaboration by those who wish to share the fruits of their labour without direct commercial reward, but wish to retain a level of control on it usage.
It's been a little longer than it should have been since the last one. Sorry. This is a not-terribly-formal update to get some news out despite the members of the release team being somewhat snowed under with other things at the moment.
[Editor's note: winner of the funniest Red Hat announcement yet. :) ]
A remotely-exploitable overflow exists in oftpd, allowing an attacker to crash the oftpd daemon.
An "all-in-one" instant messaging client is an attractive idea. GAIM has come close to achieving that goal, but recently has had problems keeping up with changes in Yahoo's messenger service and some of the others, so I decided to take a look at Kopete. It's part of KDE, which means I already had it installed.
This week's TPBK [The People Behind KDE] travels to Laboe in Germany for a chat with one of KDE's more recent additions to the community. He has been an active developer since a year and has already managed to make his mark. He's known among friends for talking too much about too many things, is not very fond of green shorts and keeps his wife on a stable release. It's Till Adam!
Accel ICIM, provider of IT solutions and system integration, will very shortly set up Linux Competency Centers in Chennai and Delhi. These Linux competency centers, to be set up with an investment of Rs 2 crore, will enable ISVs to simulate client environments and critically analyze the solution offered, in terms of ease and performance prior to buying the product.
