The open-source operating system still has major problems that need immediate attention. Our expert recommends configuration, versioning, and GUI enhancements, to name a few.

Despite the fact that it's been around since 1991, Linux remains a work in progress. It's not perfect, nor does anyone pretend it is. The places where it needs the most immediate improvement are also a matter of debate: what's crucially important to some is only marginally important to others.

Still, there's no question that there are key areas where Linux is lacking -- not just missing individual features, but things that are actively dysfunctional and which need immediate attention. I'm going to run down several major areas where Linux, as an operating system and as a platform, needs work.  [Comments....]

Count on Linux continuing to expand to fill 'new ecological niches.'

What's next for linux? There's no simple answer because Linux isn't a single entity but a galaxy of implementations and possibilities. The Linux kernel--version 2.6.27.4, to be precise--is at the center of it all, with the operating system continuously morphing into new shapes.

Two forces in particular are driving changes to Linux. One is a push to develop Linux into a standard, more predictable platform for developers and users. The other is to leverage Linux, and open source in general, as mediums through which innovation gets delivered to users. [Comments...]

SAO PAULO, Brazil--Walk into the Ponto Frio electronics store here, which proudly displays a penguin-shaped logo, and you will find a healthy supply of Linux PCs alongside the usual Windows machines.

The store's Linux love is indicative of Brazil's deep ties to open-source software. Visit the country's universities and you'll hear about many projects using open-source software in new ways. Step into the Brazilian data centers of some of the world's most advanced financial institutions and you will see they depend on the open-source software for many key tasks.

Techware Labs put this drive through its paces:

HighPoint is making a determined effort to break into the expanding market for all levels of RAID servers. The 2000 and 3000 series of RAID controllers offer advanced features, high reliability and performance at a relatively low price point. In my previous review, I analyzed the performance of the RocketRAID 2640X4 in a RAID0 configuration for pure performance purposes. This review will shift focus on the more reliable RAID5 configuration.

 OpenMoko has announced plans to launch the Linux-based FreeRunner mobile phone on July 4.

By Ryan Paul | Published: July 03, 2008 - 08:57AM CT

 The highly-anticipated open source handset will be distributed through OpenMoko's web-based store and will begin shipping on July 7. The FreeRunner will also be available from several vendors in Europe and India.

 The FreeRunner, which is designed from the ground up as a hackable and open device, was first unveiled in January at CES. It is the successor of the Neo1973, OpenMoko's first handset. Unlike the Neo, which was primarily intended for an audience of developers and hardcore enthusiasts, the FreeRunner is aimed at the broader consumer market. Although the software is still a work in progress, OpenMoko will provide software updates following the launch that are expected to incrementally improve the product and increase its viability for a nontechnical audience.
