The UUXII

GNU/LinuxAnnouncing The Unofficial Unsupported Ximianized ISO Images (or UUXII for people who like acronyms)
* What are the UUXIIs?
The UUXIIs are Unofficial Unsupported Ximianized ISO Images of GNU/Linux distributions. That means we took the standard ISO images, took out the original GNOME packages, and put the Ximian GNOME packages on there instead, so you can install the distribution complete with Ximian GNOME from the same CDs, in one operation, from the standard distribution installer. Newsforge has the full story. The correct link to the image site is uuxii.cofradia.org

MaximumLinux.org: Mac-On-Linux

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxMOL (Mac-on-Linux) is an open source project that lets Linux PPC users run the Mac OS on Linux. The project has been around in some form since 1997 and although I had heard of it before I really never even gave it much thought until I installed Yellow Dog Linux on my PowerBook Ti.

Web review: Linux at IBM.com

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxFrom NewsForge: Yes, we all know that IBM is one of the biggest supporters of Linux and other Open Source software. We know they're a huge company with many interests in many different companies. If one were to stumble onto a section of the IBM.com Web site dedicated to hardware, one might come to the conclusion that IBM favors Microsoft. Try it. Go to www.ibm.com and click on that cool looking Thinkpad deal right there on the front page. Now that is a good price. Click through to the specifications, and you'll see that, according to the verbiage, IBM recommends Microsoft: "IBM PC's use genuine Microsoft Windows." Probably something they have to say contractually. Not a big deal, we all know how to put the Linux CD in the drive and hit "install." However, there are places on the IBM website to which one could surf and truly believe that IBM is sold out to Linux -- even, to my eyes, to the point of being anti-Microsoft. Check it out: go to www-1.ibm.com/linux/. Nothing too terribly surprising -- we've even reviewed the Linux section of IBM's high-quality developerWorks webzine before and we gathered they like Linux pretty well. Read the full article.

Follow the Yellow briQ Node

GNU/Linux"Clean air. Walk to work. Rocky Mountain National Park is less than 45 minutes from here." That's how Kai Staats describes living in Loveland, Colo., and working at Terra Soft Solutions. Perhaps the only thing more refreshing than the Rocky Mountain scenery are the innovative PowerPC-based Linux products that his company has created. Terra Soft co-founder and CEO Kai Staats was busy developing Web sites and doing marketing consulting work through his Terra Firma Design company. Business was good, but there was a problem with how his work, and by extension, the work of his clients was presented. "We hosted our Web sites on servers that we neither owned or maintained," says Staats, "and so in 1997 [we] brought our servers in-house. I wanted Apple hardware, and my sys-admin [Terra Soft co-founder and CIO Dan Burcaw] wanted Linux. We used MKLinux at first, tried LinuxPPC, and decided we could produce a better product." That better product made the Linux distribution scene in April 1999, when Terra Soft Solutions announced the availability of Yellow Dog Linux Champion Server 1.0. Now known simply as Yellow Dog Linux, the 2.0 version arrived to rave reviews this summer. As with any Linux distribution, the roster of Yellow Dog Linux users is quite diverse, including HBO, America Online, Boeing, and yes, Apple Computer, a company that Terra Soft has worked hard to develop a relationship Staats has described as "positive, supportive."
