Andrea Arcangeli is well known for having completely rewritten and stabilized the virtual memory subsystem in the 2.4 Linux kernel. Many were surprised when Linus Torvalds merged Andrea's VM into 2.4.10, but the new memory subsystem has long since proved itself. Andrea is a 27 year old Linux kernel hacker living in Italy and working for SUSE.
I firmly believe that you should spend as much of the time you dedicate to free/open software and actually spend the time doing real, tangible, measurable and pragmatic things. If you are advocating Linux, instead of writing rules and regulations on how your advocacy project should manage its resources and how its official branding should be created, just get out there and call a person/charity/school/business and get on with it. The red tape will be needed at some point, but not until a stage when you are becoming a big noise in the advocacy world and when you are working on lots of different projects with different members.
"Fedora Core 2 looks to be one of the best released Linux distributions to come out of Red Hat," Keating told internetnews.com. "The operating system just seems very, very solid, very polished, technically advanced and I can't wait to install it on every system I can."
My Windows Internet gateway was running slower than a snail going uphill, even on a pretty speedy machine (a 1.3GHz Athlon), but when it started crashing regularly, I knew I had to do something.

The number of Windows administrators who are seriously considering migrating to Linux has fallen off considerably over the past year, according to the results of SearchWin2000.com's 2004 Microsoft Report Card survey. In the past two years, the survey asked IT administrators and managers to rate their interest in moving over to Linux. In 2003, the number of Windows pros interested in Linux spiked upward, only to drop back down again in 2004.
The 15 May 2004 theft and publishing of the source code for Cisco's IOS router firmware could mean a wave of exploits against the critical router infrastructure of the Internet will be on its way. If that happens, it will be because Cisco ignored one of the iron rules of network security -- and experts the world over will be muttering "if only IOS had been open source."
Mozilla 1.7 release candidate 2 has been released with an impressive list of changes.
Bob Muglia, senior vice president of Microsoft's Windows Server division, last week spoke with Computerworld about a range of issues, including the competitive threat posed by Linux.

Tired of the over-designed, over-engineered and over-hyped Linux distributions currently available? Why not build your own version of Linux that runs off a CD (or installs to your hard disk in just a few minutes)? And when your PC dies on you next time, you have your own customised Linux Desktop on a CD for quick re-install. This how-to outlines a simplified process to quickly build your own version of Morphix.
