Linux


I decided to do a series of videos on Kubuntu Linux, and publish them on YouTube.  I’ll cover topics like an overview, programs and features, installing programs, configuring the system, security and others. The first video is below.  It’s essentially a screenshare of my Kubuntu desktop inside of a virtual […]

I’m on YouTube… Sort of


On Friday, Canonical released Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).  Amongst it’s features/changes/improvements are a newly designed GUI and startup screen, changes in their color scheme and logos, and improved social networking capabilities.  Lucid is a LTS (Long Term Support) release, which is the equivalent of Microsoft releasing a new version of […]

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx is out.


http://www.linuxinsider.com/rsstory/69541.html North Korea announced their own distribution of Linux called “Red Star.”  It’s aimed at the North Korean People and Government and provides a Korean language interface.  Meanwhile the International Intellectual Property Alliance (which coincidentally is made up of mainly American based organizations) claims that because Open Source options deny […]

Linux News: North Korea’s “Red Star” Linux, and is FOSS ...




Well I accomplished most of what I wanted to do yesterday.  I watched television (and recorded some things), played movies in XBMC and tweaked it a little to add a function that they are strangely missing (the Eject button), and migrated more things to gmail.  I believe that I only […]

Linux Day 6 finished


Day 5 is over, and Day 6 is just starting…  What did I learn last night?  Well, I spent a good portion of the evening trying to get certain applications to always open up on specific workspaces.  For the Windows people, workspaces are like virtual desktops.  You can have as […]

Linux Day 5/6

Linux Day 5


Well today I finally got down to productivity with Linux.  I completed one program in Java (the assigned one) and also one that was intended to demonstrate the concepts that we went over (polymorphism).  I still have to go to the hotmail website to mark my mail as read (or […]

Linux Day 3


1
Well, Day 2 has started out interesting.  First of all, KMail refuses to remember what I’ve called "Ham" and "Spam", so all of my e-mails are ending up in the trash folder–marked as read (even though I told it to put "Spam" in the Junk folder and not mark them […]

Day 2 on Linux



*** I tried to send this out on Day 1, but it wouldn’t go, so I’m posting it tonight.*** It’s the end of the first day, and I spent 99% of it on Linux. The first half hour, I was on Windows trying to get my Outlook calendar exported over […]
