Got design chops? Love Linux? Want to go to LinuxCon in San Diego or Barcelona, Spain later this year on the Linux Foundation's dime? Read on.
Ubuntu-backer Canonical has defended its contentious move to the Unity desktop, arguing that the open-source Linux community needs to make design more of a priority."You can't please everybody, but I think it's really important we stood up and did [Unity] and led that charge," Jane Silber, Canonical's chief executive, said on Tuesday.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Linux, the Linux Foundation is holding a T-shirt design competition. ZDNet UK presents the six finalists
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Linux, the Linux Foundation is holding a t-shirt contest.
One of the huge advantages I have found over the years when working with Linux machines, is the ingenious design of the kernel itself. What is amazing about it, is that all device drivers are either compiled into the kernel itself, or provided as loadable modules.
Despite company's decision to use MeeGo for its high-end N-series devices, the Symbian platform will help drive growing volume of lower-priced smartphones, says analyst.
Moore's Second Law is squeezing out competition in chip design and manufacturing. Thanks to Linaro Linux will benefit.
The Israeli design firm is using Access Linux Platform for its thumb-based smartphone user interface
By handing the design job off to variations on a Linux distro -- LiMo, QT, Android -- carriers get flexibility with no loss of control. It's still true that nothing gets on their network without approval, but in their world Microsoft becomes just another OEM, like Apple for AT&T.
HP has announced its new ProBook series of laptops intended to merge business, design and value. Some models will offer Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 preinstalled alongside Windows.

It's Linux' modular design, a kernel whose features designers can pick-and-choose among, which is causing this revolution in embedded systems.
Round One of the Google mobile platform developer challenge is over, with a number of location-based applications making the cut.
In my ongoing effort to design a testbed for my teachers to examine OS X, Windows Vista, and Ubuntu before I start spending money in July, I fired up Boot Camp on my MacBook. Boot Camp is a utility built into OS X much like the GNU Partition Editor (gparted) in Linux that allows users to create and resize partitions on the fly to facilitate dual-boot options.
Mainsoft is offering a pragmatic approach to gaining a wide choice of deployment environments, including C/C++. The approach helps open C# developers to Java, and vice versa. It extends the utility of Visual Studio. And if provides flexibility in both runtime and design time. There's a portals-specific benefit too in that developers can attach back to portals in many environments: mainframes, Unix, Linux, and Windows.
Equally hilarious in the mouth meets foot category were Torvald's comments as reported by information week in which he first asserts that all the fundamental OS design work was done well before both Linux and Windows, and then contradicts his own logic by asserting that any Microsoft patents revealed by Microsoft could be worked around in the code.
