Long-suffering market second-spotter AMD hasn't been having a particularly good — well, let's say "stretch" — lately, and things haven't gotten any better this week, as two divisions and a top executive collected their cards yesterday just as the European Commission leaned on arch-rival Intel for anticompetitive activities. more>>
I was going to explore the new trend of green IT or perhaps talk about the morality of threatening or blackmailing (your choice) software companies into fixing security holes, but an article in Computerworld about a hospital selecting a Linux-based email sys more>>
In this second part of my survey I focus on the tools that achieve this new synthesis of arts. Alas, due to space constraints I am unable to include all the software I would like to have reviewed, but perhaps a future article will deal with those programs. Meanwhile, I present to my readers these brief profiles of Pd, Fluxus, and AVSynthesis. Each of these programs takes a different approach to the practical concerns of blending images (moving or still) with sound (realtime or recorded).
Google's Android platform for mobile phones — one of the hottest mobile Linux offerings in the work — suffered what appears to be a major setback Monday, after Google's Developer Advocate blew the lid off the internal Android secret stash a la the Eli Lily legal team. more>>
The epic battle between the Open Source world — represented by Novell — and evil proprietary patent trolls — played by SCO — has finally played out, at least partly, as Judge Dale Kimball of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah has released his decision in SCO v. Novell — and it's not a happy message for our beloved friends at SCO. more>>
Linux Journal's Flickr pool regularly brings in fun photos from readers around the world. We encourage you to add to the pool anything "Linux-ey" (up for interpretation but frankly that's half of the fun). Here are some of the most recent additions: more>>

As I watched the opening of last night’s All-Star Game, I could not help but think of an article I read several days before where the inventor of DNS, a man named Paul Mockapetris, was telling us how serious we should be taking the DNS security issue that had been announced. more>>
I, as well as my 4 year old son, have always had an interest in Astronomy. My son puts planet puzzles together and looks at picture books. I'm proud to say that he can name all the planets in order, and astonished to realize that he knows that Pluto isn't considered a planet anymore. I've read books on Astronomy; I've been to planetariums and observatories. more>>
Thank you so much for releasing Flash Player 10 beta 2 for Linux. Thanks even more for (finally) building in support for video4linux2 Webcam technology. You have no idea how much we appreciate that. The only problem is that many (if not most) of us can't use it. You see, it crashes our browsers within seconds. more>>
The July 11th "Linux Product Insider" features the Online Dictionary of Engineering Science & Tech, Curl Data Kit, High Performance MySQL, Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day and Sans Digital AccuNAS AN2L. more>>
Online identity management and single sign-on still doesn't work. Not well enough, anyway. OpenID is a good step forward. So are a bunch of other less familiar approaches. But we still haven't arrived. more>>
I made a (some will say strange) decision related to the Geek Ranch a while ago. Rather than have an "Internet Cafe" area, I decided it made more sense to rent laptops to people. That means they can use them in the restaurant, conference room, their room or under a tree. WiFi will supply the magic connection. Oh, and their price includes a "built-in UPS". more>>
