GNOME 3 released, ushers in an interesting amalgam of iOS and OS X

GNOME 3, after more than two years of development, has been released into the wild. GNOME 3 is not merely the logical successor of GNOME 2: it is an entirely new project, started from scratch, to create a "completely new, modern desktop designed for today's users and technologies." The best way to check out GNOME 3's new features -- and it has lots of new features -- is to run a live version...

TeamViewer goes cross-platform, now available for download on Linux

Well, I can now cross yet another application off my list of apps I'd miss if I switched to Linux. TeamViewer, my remote support application of choice, has arrived -- bringing its zero-config screen sharing goodness to Linux. Some of the more recent additions -- like per-application screen sharing via TeamViewer's toolbar button -- haven't made it into the Linux version yet, but things...

10 easy ways to play with Linux without leaving Windows

While I haven't made the switch to Linux full time, I find myself spending more and more time experimenting of late. In particular, I'm enjoying projects like Moblin and the Ubuntu Netbook Remix. If you're still using Windows for your primary OS there are tons of ways to get your feet wet like a true penguin without making any serious commitments. Here are ten ways to play with Linux...

Fedora makes running nightly builds of dev branch easy

If staying on top of bleeding-edge browser builds isn't hard-core enough for you, why not roll with a nightly build of an entire operating system? Happy Assassin reports that the Fedora crew is making it easy to get your hands on fresh-baked LiveCD images of the upcoming Rawhide branch. Neatly packaging the distro this way should make it easy for more users to get involved in testing. Just...

Fedora 9 released

Fedora 9 is out today. The latest version of the popular Linux distro packs a bunch of updated and new features. Like Ubuntu 8.04, Fedora 9 includes the latest updates to the KDE and GNOME desktop environments, PulseAudio, and Firefox 3 beta. But unlike Ubuntu, the Fedora 9 LiveDVD weighs in at a hefty 3.33GB. Ubuntu distros typically fit on a single CD. Fedora 9 also has several other major...

Fedora 9 beta Linux distro released

Fedora 9 beta is available for download today, with a final release scheduled for April 29.

The Squadcast 07 - Switching to Linux

This week's Squadcast features an interview with one of our own. Kristin Shoemaker joins Grant and Christina to talk about what it takes to switch to Linux and leave Windows behind, for good.

How to make Windows look like OS X, Linux, or... Windows

Love it or hate it, Windows is still pretty much the dominant operating system in the world. And while your heart may be with OS X or Linux, there might be just a couple of programs that you have to run on a regular basis that keep you coming back to your Windows machine. But just because you're running Windows Vista or XP doesn't mean you can't pretend you're using your OS of choice. We've...

Fedora Games: Fedora 8, but with lots and lots of games

Like OS X, Linux is rarely thought of as an operating system for hard core gamers. Sure, you can use WINE and CrossOver to run Windows games on Linux. But if you don't need to run BioShock to be happy, there are thousands of free games available for Linux. Fedora Games is a new LiveDVD based on Fedora 8, which was released last week. It comes packed with games. Lots and lots of games. You've got...

Fedora 8 out today

Red Hat is releasing the latest version of its Fedora Linux software today, and along with new features for users, Fedora 8 is the first version of the Fedora software that's targeted at developers who want to create their own Fedora-based Linux distributions complete with a new logo. There are already plenty of Linux distros based on other popular platforms like Ubuntu, so it kind of makes...

UNetbootin: Create a dual boot Windows/Linux PC without a CD

UNetbootin is a tool that makes installing Linux about as easy as it can be. Like Wubi, you can install UNetbootin on a Windows partition to get started. Unlike Wubi, the end result with UNetbootin is a dual-boot machine that can boot either into a Windows partition or a Linux one. So why use UNetbootin instead of downloading and burning a liveCD? Well, if you don't have a spare CD-R writing...

Vixta: A Fedora Linux-based Windows Vista clone

Vixta could be the Linux distribution with the smallest possible target audience ever: Linux users who love the look and feel of Windows Vista and wished their Linux desktops could look more like Windows. Vixta is a Fedora-based distro with a custom KDE-based interface. You get widgets, a Vista-like start menu and taskbar, and evil looks from your die-hard open-source buddies. Under the hood,...

Fedora 7 released today

Red Hat released Fedora 7 today, a new version of their Linux operating system developed in partnership with the open source community and Red Hat engineers. This is Fedora's first release to merge the Fedora Core and Fedora Extras package repositories under one set of packaging policies. Another first for Fedora 7 is all the software used is released under a free license, and all...

Eric S. Raymond divorces Fedora

After thirteen years of not-so marital bliss, Eric S. Raymond, co-founder of the Open Source Initiative, is calling it quits on his partnership with Red Hat/Fedora. The final straw came after he spent 4 hours working on what should have been a routine upgrade only to have his entire system rendered unusable. In a scathing open letter posted on various Linux websites and mailing lists, Raymond...

Fedora Legacy closing it's doors

As announced on Friday by David Eisenstein, the Fedora Legacy project is shutting down. As of his announcement (or maybe even earlier) Fedora Core 4 and earlier distributions are no longer being maintained or supported. He said that their current model of maintaining older distributions of Fedora Core are being examined, but right now everything is on (seemingly indefinite) hold. Jesse Keating...
