ASUS Radeon HD 3850 & 3870 on Linux

Last month AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 3800 series as "enthusiast gaming performance for the masses" through the Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870, which are both sub-$250 graphics cards. While rudimentary, the Catalyst 7.11 Linux driver (also released last month), supports these two RV670 GPUs with better support coming through the Catalyst 7.12 Linux driver this month. To see how well these two PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards are able to perform under Linux, ASUS had sent out their EAH3850 TOP and EAH3870 TOP. We have tested both of these graphics cards using Ubuntu 7.10 and have compared the results to other products using the fglrx driver, including the ATI Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB. These are the world's first Linux benchmarks of these new mainstream ATI graphics processors.

Latest drives show no visible means of support

SEAGATE'S latest batch of drives, the ironically titled Free Agent series are not compatible with the Open Sauce operating system Linux.

As an INQ reader, who owns two 320s and 500s (USB2) pointed out to us, Seagate designers must have been working overtime to manage that feat. Linux runs his ancient Arcnet card, the latest DVB-c/s/t cards and even the more obscure studio-grade A/D/A converters. It cannot manage the latest from Seagate.

The problem is to do with the power-saving systems on Seagate's latest range of drives and the fact that it is shipped already formatted to NTFS.... MORE   Comments in the Forums

 Microsoft feeling heat from Linux in budget flash PC market

Microsoft announced plans today to expand support for Windows XP on budget flash-storage computing devices with an eye towards getting Windows XP running on the OLPC. The software giant will publish design guidelines next year that will make it possible for manufacturers of low-cost mobile devices to build hardware that provides optimal compatibility with Microsoft's legacy operating system. The company also announced plans for field trials next month that will put Windows XP to the test on One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project's XO laptop....More    Comments in The Forums

Can Oracle dominate Red Hat?
Michael Hoffman (Blog) - November 26, 2007 8:40 AM

The Oracle OpenWorld expo in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago featured a slew of different announcements, but only a small number of them got major press coverage. One curious reader e-mailed me to quickly discuss Oracle Unbreakable Linux and Red Hat, and I decided a short blog was in order.

Popularity stakes

DESPITE a lack of enthusiasm from Linux geeks for sticking their cherished Open Sauce software on the desktop, it seems that it is in this area that the OS is stealing ground from Microsoft.
According to the preliminary report on the Linux Foundation's annual survey from Desktop Linux, the Open Sauce software is growing in popularity.
More than double the numbers of people filled in the survey this year, in comparison to last year.
Egosoft's X3: Reunion For Linux

From Phoronix:

Last week we mentioned that X3: Reunion for Linux was going forward with beta testing, which is going on ten months after Linux Game Publishing originally announced they would be porting this X2 - The Threat sequel. Well, those fortunate to have closed-beta access privileges at Linux Game Publishing were finally greeted with the X3: Reunion Linux binary yesterday. In addition to the Linux binary, there is also support for DragonflyBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD. X3: Reunion was originally supposed to ship for Linux back in August, but seeing as the closed beta testing hadn't even started until yesterday, don't expect the final release until the first half of 2008.
