Raspberry Pi is a tiny-sized single-board computer that costs only 30 Euros. Due to its high demand, the Rasberry Pi Foundation had to restrict purchases of the Raspberry Pi to one per customer. However, things seems to have changed since yesterday, both of their manufacturing partners have been working at building capacity and from now on 4000 Raspberry Pis are being made every day.
Earlier today, we’ve had the pleasure of recording a live video stream from the O'Reilly OSCON 2012 event with Ubuntu’s father and Canonical’s founder, Mark Shuttleworth.
It is only natural that there are still a lot of people out there who can’t get used to GNOME 3 and prefer GNOME 2 that they are used to. The problem with this is that not many distributions support GNOME 2 anymore, and most of them use obsolete versions of applications. Fuduntu on the other hand is modern in every aspect, except for the GNOME version…

This tutorial shows how to prepare a CentOS 6.3 x86_64 server for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, BIND nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, Mailman, and many more. Since version 3.0.4, ISPConfig comes with full support for the nginx web server in addition to Apache; this tutorial covers the setup of a server that uses Apache, not nginx.
One of the best things about being part of the Linux community is that life is absolutely never boring around here. Take MeeGo, for instance. First, it came, as a result of the merger between Maemo and Moblin. Then, it went -- namely, when Tizen arrived. Now? You guessed it: It's back!
Today I’ll talk about a very important type of monitoring that is rarely discussed (perhaps because not so many people are privileged to work with hardware that supports this technology: IPMI). The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a standard used to manage a computer system and monitor its operation. Its development was led by Intel and is today supported by more than 200 hardware manufacturers. Its operation is independent of an operating system, which allows administrators to remotely manage the hardware resources even before any OS starts. For example, we can monitor through IPMI system temperatures, voltages, fans (FAN), power supplies, chassis intrusion, etc..For the ones that wants to go deeper in IPMI specifics, I suggest reading the website of Intel
There's been a lot of noise on the internet recently about the fact that the Windows-based software being used in the remote control system of drones use by the American military has been hit by a virus and this has caused the Department of Defense (DOD) to use GNU/Linux which is a more secure option. This has, predictably, caused raised eyebrows and demands by some that any military organisation should be prevented from using GNU/Linux in offensive weapons systems. The use of Drones in Afghanistan is a highly controversial issue but it is not the purpose of this article to debate the morality and ethics of deploying drones in an area of asymetrical conflict but rather to explore if it is actually possible to use the terms of the GPL to legally prevent the deployment of software or operating systems by any government's military.

With the academic year approaching, coming up with a resolution to my screencast file-size problems has taken on renewed urgency. To reiterate, a recent major hardware upgrade on my computer led to a twofold increase in the size of screencast video files I produce on this machine--which in turn led to upload problems at my course web site. It looks like the resolution may well be provided by ffmpeg.
Geeks are known to be obsessive about things. At times that tendency can go overboard, resulting in them looking rather silly and foolish.
Dell plans to start selling a limited number of laptops running Ubuntu Linux this fall. The first will be a Dell XPS 13 ultrabook aimed at developers and running Ubuntu 12.04.
