Links 19/06/2008: Big News from AMD (Tux on Box), Clarinet ‘Runs’ Linux

  • AMD Makes An Evolutionary Leap In Linux Support

    Tux being part of their licensed box design, forthcoming CrossFire support, and other major features coming are major wins for the Linux community. For those concerned that AMD is attempting to build back up its binary blockade, don’t worry as their open-source strategy will continue with the RV770.

  • Linux Community Should Plant Seeds for Consumer Demand

    Free and open source software has come a long way toward widespread acceptance over the years, and that can be attributed in no small part to the strength and dedication of the community behind it.

  • To Those Who Make My Job Easier

    I know that isn’t near enough to express my gratitude for the gifts you’ve given this community. There are three of you who know just how generous I can be, but that was a one-time shot and as much as I’d like to match that gesture time and time again…well, we’ll see some day.

  • Linux-powered clarinet playing robot wins international prize

    “To get networking we plugged in a daughter board, and another board for the console, so we ended up with a stack of boards. The Gumstix board is an ARM processor running an Open Embedded Linux distribution,” Judge told Computerworld.

  • Testing Linux With a Live CD
  • Releases : Zenwalk Live 5.2 is ready!

    Zenwalk Live 5.2, the latest Zenwalk in its Live CD format is ready!

  • Linux on a Wii
  • Linux Distributions explained for Windows Users
  • Review: Linux Mint 5

    One of the hallmark Linux distributions for new users that we’ve been very pleased with has been Linux Mint. As I’ve said before, it’s built on Ubuntu and is essentially “Ubuntu done right”. With the introduction of version 5, Linux Mint has upped its previous level of perfection (as though they had far to go) and created an even better distribution than before.

  • Damn Small Linux 4.4 Review

    DSL 4.4 was just released on June 9th, so this past weekend I installed it on my Compaq Deskpro Pentium III 800 Mhz machine. It only has 256 megs of RAM, so a lightweight distribution like DSL is a good choice for it. Their site claims you can run DSL 486 DX with 16 megs of RAM, so even this old Compaq should fly with what it’s got.

    Mint is a nice project albeit a little too proprietary for my test. “Ubuntu done right” sounds like a pleonasm to me though.

    Xen is working for Microsoft now, by proxy. It’s good to know that Ubuntu steered away to KVN at the end of last year.

    Microsoft, like Oracle, could never compete. It could just buy the competition of ‘steal’ essential parts of it. Look what it’s doing to Yahoo! at the moment.

    Obscene corruption in Europe’s second-largest institution is receiving the blind eye from national representatives, who are themselves an active part of this corruption; the EPO’s reappointed dictator is already attacking union representatives, just like Battistelli did; “You are not important for this Organization. Move on,” he said to Brumme
