2.6.23-rc8, "Getting Close"

,----[ quote ]
| "Ok, I think I'm getting close to releasing a real 2.6.23," began Linus
| Torvalds in his release announcement for the eighth release candidate of the
| upcoming 2.6.23 kernel. "Things seem to have calmed down, and I think Thomas
| Gleixner may have found the suspend/resume regression that has dogged us for
| a while, so I'm feeling happy about things."

PC-BSD Day 16: Time for advocacy

,----[ Quote
| The good news is that the Dutch government send a new policy paper to
| parliament about the use of open source software and open standards. The gist
| of it is that government institutions will be obliged to start using open
| standards as early as 2008 and migrate to open source software as much as
| possible and feasible. This means that I can request, no demand government
| documents to be made available to me in Open Document Format or -when it is
| deemed impossible- to get a very, very good explanation about the why.

| It even requires the PC-BSD team to sit down with GUI specialists, artists
| and graphical designers to create that new experience. But once this is done
| PC-BSD should be able to make a strong contribution to support the push to
| promote open source software in the wake of the open standards adoption.

Ladies and Gentlemen: PC-BSD

,----[ Quote ]
| Continuing with my capstone class series, I have been testing some alternates
| to the distros that were chosen for me. These alternates are basically
| different distros of the same operating systems. For instance, I mentioned
| last night that I had found an Ubuntu based Solaris distro called Nexenta. I
| played with it a bit last night, but I decided not to use it because it is
| still in its Alpha stages.

Comparing GNU/Linux and FreeBSD

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeBSD and GNU/Linux are two great options: choosing one or the
| other depends on many factors. Usually FreeBSD is used as a web
| server: companies like Yahoo! or Sony Japan trust FreeBSD to run
| their internet portals; on the desktop GNU/Linux wins this battle,
| but GNU/Linux is used on many web servers as well. Users will find
| if they are familiar with traditional UNIX systems they can use
| either without many problems. FreeBSD and Linux: a gift of
| quality, robustness, security and stability from the free software
| community to the world of operating systems.

Kubuntu v.s. PC-BSD

,----[ Quote ]
| I played a bit with Kubuntu this morning in preparation for the
| article "PC-BSD for Ubuntu Users". It made sense to me to compare the two
| operating systems if they were both running the same window manager (KDE) so
| I wouldn't be distracted by Gnome v.s. KDE issues. That was my first
| mistake....
