Red Hat's Fedora 11: So easy you'll forget it's Linux

Red Hat has taken heat over the past few years for allegedly neglecting the 
personal computer in favor of more profitable enterprise servers. It's a 
fair critique: Red Hat is an enterprise software company, a decision it made 
years ago, and to good effect.

But anyone thinking that Red Hat has somehow forgotten consumer markets in 
its rush to win the enterprise need only try the final release of Fedora 11, 
its community-focused operating system for desktops and laptops. I've been 
evaluating Fedora 11 for the past week and find it polished and professional 
while meeting or beating Windows in key performance areas.

Reading through Fedora 11's feature list, the geek in you may get giddy 
seeing the use of ext4 as the default file system. Not me. I don't care 
about the underpinnings of the operating system. I just want it to work. 
This is, in fact, Fedora 11's biggest selling point: it just works. And 
fast, too: from powering on to logging in takes 20 seconds or less. Beat 
that, Windows!

IBM's New Motion on Linux Aims to 'Call SCO's Bluff',1759,1638009,00.asp IBM is trying to use SCO as a punching bag this week as Big Blue fires off another motion for partial summary judgment in its legal slugfest over Linux and Unix copyright issues. IBM on Monday asked the U.S. District Court in Utah to rule that it should win immediately on its eighth counterclaim, which regards copyright infringement. In that counterclaim, IBM asserts that because The SCO Group Inc. has sold Linux�which included more than 783,000 lines of code of IBM's copyrighted material�the court should immediately gra...

Hyperlink's, ImageURL's, and OnError's

Who's show is SN? Steve's or Leo's?
I don't want to start anything (honestly)! Just want to ask a simple question. Does the Security Now podcast belong to Steve Gibson or Leo Laporte? Maybe I'm in a world all to myself, but when I listen to the excellent SN podcasts, I want to hear STEVE, not Leo. But especially in the past few shows, it seems Leo will repeatedly interrupt Steve in the middle of a sentence that I want to hear the rest of. I consider this very rude of Leo. Steve is making a point that I (we) want to hear, then looses his train of thought after Leo barges in and asks something. It...

DataSet's DataTable's and TableAdapter's Oh My!
Here is my situation.  I am using VB as my programming language.I am creating a part of a website that will be the admin section.  I want the admin to be able to add/edit data in a set of tables that normal users can't.  There are 20 lookup tables that I use in the website that I want the admin to be able to manage (i.e. add, edit, delete, insert).  I don't want to create 20 separate web pages (one for each table).  I have one page that has links to all the tables.  Each link has a "table" querystring variable associated with it.  When the...

What's the difference between 'Build' and 'Publish'
Greetings....this subject might belong in one of the Visual Studio forums but it's so danged noob-sque.... I'm particularly confused by the 'Precompiled' term in the Publish operation. I'm interested in the path of least resistance between my VS project and my public IIS webserver. thx--steve...  Build means creating the assembly of the project ( .dll or .exe file) wich contains MSIL and a manifest file. When you publish your project u just produce the structure of your folder without producing a .dll file when you want to deploy your Web Project. ...
