OpenBSD: The most secure OS around

  View Printable Version 
OpenBSD/NetBSDZDnet reports:

"You're probably sick and tired of running into the latest Windows security snafu. And you're undoubtedly painfully aware that most versions of Unix have their own major security holes, such as the recent HP-UX whopper. I'm guessing that you're wondering if there's a network operating system that gets security right. There is: OpenBSD."

The article presents a good overview of what sets OpenBSD apart from other OS's, without going into too much detail.

  View Printable Version 
The trailer for Star Wars episode II "Attack of the Clones" is available for streaming online as of right now immediately. I had difficulties viewing it because of "technical difficulties" a few minutea ago. Guess they are being slashdotted.

The AMD Athlon XP 1900+

  View Printable Version 
HardwareAMD let out it's newest CPU offering in October, the Athlon XP 1900+. It ticks at 1600Mhz, but as we all know by now, this does not necessarily mean anything in particular when it comes to processing speed. In fact, in a test done by Tom's Hardware, it let the Intel Pentium 4 @ 2000MHz behind in the dust. All the details on both the Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon benchmarks and a torough discussion on this new AMD CPU is here.

WindowsBy Tor Willy Austerslått

TechNotes: Fixing SuSE 7.3

  View Printable Version 
GNU/Linux"Those who read this week's .comment column on LinuxPlanet.com learned of the difficulty that I and some others have encountered in installing, configuring, and using SuSE Linux 7.3. These problems are not universal, but for a substantial number of users they render a nonfunctioning or barely functioning system.

As it turns out, at least two significant problems can be relatively easily solved, even by users who have little Linux experience. A third problem is not a critical issue but still one for which a solution remains elusive."

US: DeCSS is free speech

  View Printable Version 
NewsA court in sunny California has ruled that publishing source code for the DVD de-scrambler "DeCSS", falls into the category of free speech. This was what Jon Johansen did last year, subsequently finding trenchcoat clad men with moustaches and well-kept handguns outside his door.

Read about it on The Register. There is also a piece on this at ZDNet News.
