Imagine creating Web-page graphics dynamically using just code — no need for a complex graphics program. Creating and manipulating images is yours for the doing with the power of PHP. Put your coding skills to work generating imaes for the Web.
Lately, there has been quite some biitching on the fringes of the KDE project about KDE4 and the direction it takes. Some people go as far as saying: "Give us back our old desktop!" I beg to differ. The old desktop has served us well for thirty-odd years since its invention by Xerox. It is beyond its due date by now. We need something new that meets the reality we are living in now.

Last fall when the two mega-distros openSUSE and Mandriva both hit the mirrors, it was difficult to decioe which I liked better. In an attempt to narrow it down, I ran some light-hearted tests and found Mandriva won out in a side-by-side comparison. But things change rapidly in the Linux world and I wondered how a competition of the newest releases would come out. Mandriva 2008.1 was released this past April and openSUSE 11.0 was released just last week.
After many years of resisting the need to do so, LGP has finally decided to add a level of copy protection to our games. This is being done in response to the exceptionally high levels of piracy of Linux games.

The Open Document Format (ODF) has benefited from the two-year7battle over the ratification of Microsoft's rival Open Office XML (OOXML) standard, which is native to its Office 2007 suite, Microsoft's national technology officer said Thursday during a panel discussion at the Red Hat Summit in Boston.
"ODF has clearly won," said Stuart McKee, referring to Microsoft's recent announcement that it would begin natively supporting ODF in Office next year and join the technical committee overseeing the next version of the format.
So there has been a lot of confusion about the KDE 4 desktop and FolderView lately and some nasty stuff I dod’t want to go into right now. In the comments to Aaron’s blog someone said they don’t see how exactly it will be better and help them be more productive. So let me show you it ;-)
Mandriva Linux 2009 comes a step closer to reality today with the unveiling of the release schedule and the technical specifications.

The technical specifications are based on input from both the community and Mandriva staff, with each item assigned to a specific maintainer and given a priority level.
From VoIP Now
Have you tried lately to figure out which Linux operating system you’d like to use? And, did you think about adding a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) device to that Linux system? We can guess that you probably overwhelmed with the choices available to VoIP users today. In fact, to write a truly definitive guide to VoIP for Linux users, we would need to write a book.
