When faculty say 'NO' to UNIX/Linux

We can argue all day long about the technical superiority of Windows versus Macintosh vs UNIX/Linux but, when all is said in done, if they won't use it, there is no reason for us to support it.

Get your Firefox update - and don't forget the Flash

Mozilla has released an updated version of Firefox 2.0 for Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers. The latest release, version includes security fixes, and promises to address some of the long-standing memory leaks that have been a source of concern for many users. Based on my admittedly brief use of the new version, memory consumption seems to be about the same as with the previous version.

Is Apple on the way out?

commentary A headline like that is bound to draw the ire of the Macintosh faithful. After all, since Microsoft, which can marshal its forces and target competitors at will with lethal precision, hasn't finished-off Apple after all these years (and I'm not saying that this was necessarily a Redmond goal), how on earth can an operating system like Linux spell trouble for Apple?

Sophos chief concedes Unix virus frustration

Sophos' anti-virus chief, Jan Hruska, says the race to perfect "on-access" virus scanning technology for desktop versions of Linux and FreeBSD has the company's Unix developers "tearing their hair out". The development of on-access scanning for Unix would give Linux users the same the type of technology that protects Windows and Macintosh users when they inadvertently double-click or otherwise attempt to open files infected with viruses such as those bundled into some e-mail attachments.

Ximian tries to woo Microsoft customers

Ximian, a small Boston company pushing use of the Linux operating system on ordinary desktop computers, is offering discounts to try to woo Microsoft customers dissatisfied with a more expensive licensing plan from the software titan. As of May, about two-thirds of Microsoft's customers haven't signed up for a program to offer a subscription-like product update service. The sign-up deadline is July 31. Ximian is offering discounts of up to 25 percent on software such as its Evolution for checking e-mail, its Connector software for integrating Evolution with Microsoft Exchange e-mail systems, and Sun Microsystems' StarOffice 6 suite of programs for tasks such as word processing. Many of these products are bundled with product support and online updates in a package called Ximian Desktop Professional Edition, which runs on versions of Linux from Red Hat, SuSE and MandrakeSoft. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

SuSE offers StarOffice 6 with Linux

On June 24, German Linux seller SuSE will begin offering Pro-Office CD, a $24.95 product that includes Sun Microsystems' StarOffice 6 as well Linux software updates and version 3.0.1 of the KDE graphical interface, the company said Monday. Sun charges Linux sellers a fee to ship version 6 of StarOffice, much less than the $76 it charges retail customers but still more than the free version 5.2. Sun's pricing practices led Red Hat, the top seller of the Linux operating system, to stop including StarOffice. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

OpenOffice for Mac OS X clears hurdle

A test version of OpenOffice, the open-source brother of Sun Microsystems' StarOffice software and a competitor to Microsoft Office, now can be downloaded, project organizers said Tuesday. The version, an alpha test version intended for programmers, requires the XFree86 graphical interface software and uses an installer from ZeroG Software. Other versions of OpenOffice run on Linux, Windows and Sun's Solaris. Open-source software is collectively developed by a group of people who freely share the program's underlying source code. By contrast, the source code of proprietary software from companies such as Microsoft is typically kept a tightly guarded secret. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
