An introduction to collaborative development with Launchpad

,----[ Quote ]
| In response to strong encouragement from 
| the Ubuntu community, Canonical released 
| Launchpad's source code last year under the 
| open source GNU Affero General Public 
| License (AGPL).


Life with Linux: Adding a Mac-like dock

,----[ Quote ]
| By default, Ubuntu, Fedora, and other 
| Gnome-based user interfaces do not come 
| with a dock, but it is easy to add. Like 
| many things with open source and Linux, you 
| have more than one choice. This is a good 
| thing, because competition drives each to 
| be better. After reading about and playing 
| with several, I settled on Cairo Dock. Here 
| are a few comments on my experience of 
| setting it up on Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10.


Using Amarok

,----[ Quote ]
| Music is one thing I couldnât live without. 
| Especially while working, music keeps me 
| sane. Whether I am writing a lot of 
| documentation or testing software, 
| background music helps me from going 
| ballistic. And because Amarok was installed 
| when I installed the Kubuntu desktop 
| package, I thought of giving it another 
| try.


Record your Desktop with Linux Tools

| I tested three popular screencasting 
| applications to see which is best for 
| everyday use. I evaluated the user 
| interface, the quality and variety of 
| output formats, and the ease of 
| installation and obtaining the required 
| dependencies. I tested the programs on a 
| MacBook Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM, 
| dual-booting into Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron.


RDO from Micro Focus

,----[ Quote ]
| Micro Focus, a provider of Enterprise 
| Application Modernization, Testing and 
| Management solutions, today announces Micro 
| Focus Server Express Remote Development 
| Option (RDO), a new development environment 
| option for its development platform that 
| helps slash time and costs for companies 
| building or maintaining Micro Focus COBOL 
| applications for deployment on UNIX and 
| Linux servers.
