LinuxContributed by Lacidar, who can't remember his password:

Following Munich, Germany's decision to switch to Linux desktops, the French capital of Paris is studying a similar move.

Systems integrator Unilog is set to carry out a feasibility study on the installation of open-source software systems for the city of Paris, the company has said. On the strength of an earlier Unilog study, Munich agreed to migrate thousands of desktops from Windows to the open-source operating system Linux.

Mandrake LinuxPosted to the Cooker Mailing List by Helge Hielscher (edited for view and spelling errors):

Here is a summarized list of questions and suggestions from our Volunteers, Contributors and Members and the answers of MandrakeSoft.Please feel free to add your comments, suggestions and feelings. Thanks.

A. Relation with contributors

1) Some contributors seem frustrated by the lack of communication with Mandrakesoft reps. What is the position from Mandrakesoft for contributors? Is their work considered only as an addon ?

It's like a win-win relation: MandrakeSoft higly respects contributors' work and considers it very important for all Mandrake products. On theother hand, contributors have the opportunity to contribute to a dynamic Open Source project and of course benefit in return. In short: do you wanta better quality product? Test it more and report possible solutions... Want a new feature? submit it, convince us about the opportunity to builtit and integrate it. As a result, Mandrake Linux answers contributers needs, and the product improves, for the benefit of all. That's the spiritof Open Source Software.

KDE is so cool because...  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, February 10 2004 @ 09:32 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod


KDE is a very powerful piece of software. If you're like us, you'll find it quite daunting when the sheer power of an application is displayed to you. Not because it makes it any harder to use, but because it makes your mind swim with all the possibilities. Personally, we tend to drown in that situation and actually find it very hard to think of any real life situations in which certain features could be used.

I know that's a very useful feature to have, but for the life of me I can't actually think of a situation in which I would use it.

We are writing this to put that great flexibility into perspective, to show how it can aid you in your everyday work situations.

Automated source license management  View Printable Version

Open SourceFrom Open: Serious water-fowlers know that black ducks are seriously smart. They're hard to call and decoy, suspicious of their surroundings, and look smart in flight.

This week's story is about Black Duck Software, whose source-code management software checks the requirements of Open Source and proprietary licenses to help businesses and government agencies keep their code environment safe and IP risk-free. After reading what they're all about, you won't find it difficult to see why this was a company name chosen wisely.

Saturday, February 07 2004 @ 12:49 PM CST
Contributed by: Anonymous


In Part 2 of this very interesting analysis of Novell at LinuxWorld, MozillaQuest Magazine's ( Mike Angelo discusses Novell's repeat of its 1990s expansion into the OS world with CEO Jack Messman and Vice-Chairman Chris Stone. MozillaQuest Magazine ( reports: Novell's acquisitions of SUSE Linux and Ximian might be a deja vou experience -- but perhaps not all over again. This time, Novell's entry into the operating-system world likely will work. This time Novell has adopted SUSE Linux for its OS instead of Unix and Novell has embraced the Free and Open Source Software community (FOSS) and the Bazaar, open source, software development model.

LinuxFirst they were pirates. Now I guess they're supposed to be cyber-terrorists, too.

It's happening oh-so-quietly, but ever since the MyDoom virus started breaking records for speed and devastation last week, a selection of "experts" has been using the media to point the finger at the Linux community.

Contributed by: Linegod

KDEFebruary 3, 2004 (The Internet) - The KDE Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of KDE 3.2, the third major release of the award-winning KDE3 desktop platform. KDE 3.2 is the result of a combined year-long effort by hundreds of individuals and corporations from around the globe. This diverse team has been working successfully together since 1997 to make KDE the leading Open Source desktop software for Linux and UNIX.

As with previous KDE releases, version 3.2 provides an integrated desktop and a comprehensive set of applications that combine to create an environment that is usable for a wide variety of tasks right out of the box. In addition to the many new applications making their debut in KDE 3.2, the veteran applications have been refined and augmented generously. By installing some or all of these applications common desktop tasks such as web browsing, file management, email, personal information management, instant messaging, software and web development, multimedia, education and entertainment can be accomplished quickly and easily. This impressive collection of software is complemented by a recent update to the KOffice integrated office suite.
