Project Utopia

TKtim's picture

If Linux programmers could get in front of some of the chips that run the hardware such as scanner, etc. maybe we could get more hardware to work out of the box. You would think small companies or low cost companies would love having code partially completed for them. If this code was partially set to link into both Linux and Windows from the start then it would be easier for Linux coder to complete the Linux drivers. Better yet, if someone could get everyone to agree on some limited standard for a portion of hardware drivers that make it easy for any OS to utilize them with limited adjustments.

Someone need to make available a free program that works under Windows or Linux to the hotel industry. We are being locked out of WIFI when traveling due to a front end program that let you sign in from Windows only (sometimes from Apple). It's just a program to make sure you pay to use their WIFI system. Checks for hotel password, your name and your room number. If you use Linux you are out of luck. A good program needs to be given away to the hotel industry that allows any OS to log in to their WIFI systems.

How to implement?

I read the article in the physical magazine. Q. How is this Utopia actually used? Is it implemented by simply using kernel 2.6.x with HAL, D-Bus, GNOME, etc? Or do you need to tie it all together somehow, say via loading a kernel module, or some sort of daemon?
Also, is it restricted to GNOME, or can KDE users take advantage of this?
PS, I see no sign-in link anywhere on this page. What's up with that?

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
