- Automatix comes to Fedora 9 – FedoMATIX
Remember Automatix? Yes the nifty little application that made installing additional softwares on the Ubuntu system a breeze. Here comes the same for Fedora 9, FedoMATIX (v0.1Beta). It currently works on the command line only, but supports more than 60 additional softwares/apps already. The next version, which is due release in 2 months, will feature a GUI and many more softwares and hacks.

- Linux 2.6.26-rc9 [released]
Ok, the last -rc obviously wasn’t the last one after all, since here’s a new one. Enough changes that we needed another -rc, and the regression list isn’t emptying fast enough either (probably because a number of people, including reporters, are vacationing).

When it comes to the GNOME LiveCD, they have switched from using GNOME to Xfce. Switching to this lightweight desktop environment was done to conserve space on the LiveCD image. Once using the LiveCD installer to install to a disk, you will be left with Xfce 4.4.2, but KDE or GNOME can be built from the Portage source. With Gentoo 2008.0 there is no x86 or AMD64 LiveDVD this time around (at least not for now) due to a decision by the release engineering team to avoid delaying the 2008.0 release any further.

And before anyone thinks that’s impossible, look at Sabayon. It’s already doing that. It’s current version 3.5 offers you four major window managers (KDE, Gnome, XFCE and Fluxbox), a specialized EeePC install, and a Gui-less install for server uses. If they can do it, why can’t Ubuntu?
- The Linux Saga: Preface
One of the advantages of a UNIX system is the possibility to replace any part of the system with another provided that it has the same interface/functionality. You don’t like BASH? Use tcsh. You don’t like KDE? There is GNOME, Xfce.

Still, dominance alone is not an antitrust problem. The issue is the powerful company’s behavior, says Andrew I. Gavil, a professor at the Howard University School of Law. “You have to be big and bad, not just big,” he said.
- INQ hack goes Mac
I’m simply fed up. I’m fed up with the absolute turd that is Windows Vista. I’ve been using it since beta’s were stable enough for day-to-day use, and I just can’t take another five minute wait of constant disk thrashing, after another reboot forced upon me by yet another security patch from Microsoft.
